Re-Vote for Server type!!!!

Ok so recap of pros for each (let me know if I miss anything):

a) Open:
-You can defend as well as attack in the PQs
-There is pvp everywhere -not just scenarios and lakes*
-You can go gank people 2 tiers below you



b) Core:
-You can return to any pve zone at any time
-People even 1 tier above you can't gank you
-PvP will be focused in the scenarios and lakes*



You have until early morning Sunday to change your mind in the poll if you want.





*They call the intended RvR zone with the quests a "Lake" as far as I understand it, no idea why...



Mythic info below:

Servers, servers - get'ya servers! Below you will find the server names we anticipate being available at Launch. These will begin going live Sunday, September 14th with the Collector’s Edition Head Start and will continue to roll out leading up to Launch on September 18th.

Players will be able to choose from four server types: Core, Open RvR, Roleplay, and a hybrid Roleplay/Open RvR ruleset. We will continue to open up servers supporting different server types as the need arises.



Core Ruleset

Core servers are just what you’d expect. These are servers that have everything Warhammer has to offer, with no special changes to the normal ruleset. RvR is confined to lakes and Scenarios, and there are two opposing realms engaged in the WAR. Players may only engage in Player vs. Player combat when flagged to do so in specific areas around the world. Select a Core ruleset server for the original exciting gameplay experience that WAR was designed to offer.



Open RvR Ruleset

The Open RvR servers feature RvR flagging everywhere except for the Tier 1 Chapter area and the surrounding PvE content. Once players leave this area, they will be flagged for RvR anywhere in the game. Open RvR servers are perfect for those who want to add an extra challenge to their gaming experience. Players must constantly watch their backs or risk attack by enemies everywhere they go! Only members of opposing realms may attack each other; the Open RvR server still focuses on Order versus Destruction.

Rules:

- Players are always RvR flagged from the moment they log in
- Chapter 1 hubs and capital cities are safe
- There is no bolster buff in RvR lakes
- Players will be chickened when entering an area that is two tiers below their level (ex. A Tier 3 player entering a Tier 1 area.)



Roleplay and Roleplay/Open RvR

Any server flagged as Roleplay will follow the same rules as above, but with an additional set of guidelines. These servers are for those players who enjoy truly immersing themselves into the Warhammer lore by acting as their characters’ personalities in-game. Players who opt to participate on a Role Playing server must agree to far more specific rules regarding naming, and it is suggested that players would adhere to WAR or high fantasy conduct and behavior.

Open is dumb as you can't even go back to the tier 1 zones themselves without being turned into a chicken.

I thought you could go back until you hit tier 3. It said that you could go one tier lower than you were.

I could be persuaded to vote either way.

However, I'm not really sure what benefit there is to playing on an open server though since I don't actively go around looking to gank lower players than myself. Also the way the game is set up 1v1 is definitely not balanced so if, for example, I were playing say a sorceress I expect I would get killed by just about any other enemy player I came across in 1v1. My other concern is that I do like being able to go back to finish quests and help out friends or just hang out with them in other zones and this won't fully be possible in an open server.

In Wow you had to go look for pvp so being on a pvp server made sense. In war it's pretty easy to find and might be nice to occasionally have a break.

open is dumb as fuck it will just spread out the pvp instead of having in concentrated in one area.

If you all go play on an open server, I might just consider playing with rl friends on a core server. Open really sounds stupid.

Outside of the chicken mechanic, you are basically saying you want to play on a PvE server? I dont get that. War is about fighting, not only certain places to fight..

We played a PvP server in Wow so we could go look for PvP. I don't think that's a problem in WAR, you can find it very very easily. What's the benefit of playing Open?

I recapped the pros for Open & Core (let me know if I missed one). I accidentally reset the poll because I added new options (fail I know). So yeah re-vote
