    I don't have a very good opinion on PvP MMORPG I meet.
    Most of the time it seems to me just a contest of who's best geared (Take that! I've an Excalibur with +10critical hit and double blessed while your silver axe can barely damage my Legendary armor improved by dragon blood!!!) or who has found the best stats repartition for his character (in 12Sky2 if I remind well if you put a single point in force it's allready a mistake).
    What I see allways is stand in front of the opponent and hit hit hit!!! As I allready sayed in other context no strategy! There is even 1000times more strategy in 1st shooter games

    It depends on the game. Did LotRO ever develop good PvP?

    Really depends on the genre, setting, and storyline.
    PvP games bring in a lot of players, but many of those are a detriment to the game's success and enjoyability.

    All games doesn't need pvp. But in some games, pvp is the most important system.
    So it kind of depends on what game it is.

    It really depends on the game, but more so on the players of the game. Some find infinite fun in PvE, some need PvP . For me, PvE is not really too interesting, PvP is what I look for

    Well that really depends on the MMORPG since some do better in different areas (e.g. story, quests, dungeons, etc.), not just PvP. I think story would be the most crucial for an MMORPG to be fun, but PvP is nice to have. It all depends on the game.

    PVP would make the MMORPG 10x funner.

    Yea. I guess so. Thats where you test your character and how to build stats to make it domimant against other players
