Can we humor the idea of a classic Pvp Ruleset again?

The population has died considerably, and at this rate another ruleset wouldnt kill uthgards primary player base. If anything a new ruleset may bring people back to uthgard after the gimmick of the server is over for some.

So you want the server to die even faster?

If a game isn't designed with a PvP Ruleset from the very beginning, it will simply not work. PvP-Servers in Daoc died in weeks for a reason.

When the concept of a DAoC PvP server was fresh less than 10% of DAoC players went there. DAoC is a game that's designed for Realm vs Realm, not Guild vs Guild. Some people did try it out but most quickly gave up on that mode. It wasn't popular then and it won't be popular here.

Aye, there is a lot of truth to this. Don't get me wrong, I don't buy the whole "design" idea. Many things are designed for something but they evolve over time and the effects are often something nobody expected, in case of daoc very positive. Of course that since it's an old game and it came out as one of the first big games in the genre, people back then had a lot more energy to play it because everything was relatively new and fascinating. Also, population was what, 2-3 k people on each server 24/7 which made the role playing and keep taking aspect very nice and cool. But games do evolve over time and ultimately people develop their own playing styles, which is totally fine and frontiers are big enough for everyone.

But yeah, the PvP ruleset is absolutely the worst thing and in my experience the PvP servers people are usually very impatient and they always want instant action with little or no work put in. Also, many of them whom I knew on uth1 either used various speed hacks or tried to buy plats with RL money and so on, sometimes both :D.
Working as intended. It's done when it's done. It's a feature, not a bug. Have no fear kiddies, our think tank in the player council will make Uthgard great again - these men have a 4D Matrix like view of reality, they understand how the universe works and are well known across the globe for finding solutions to problems like massive disease epidemics and starvation and they're currently working on a project to achieve world peace in a matter of months. Again, have no fear, once the world peace is established, these decorated individuals will fix any issues that are currently being discussed in the Council and restore law and order to Uthgard!

People already cry enough just from being grey ganked in DF and the frontier. Imagine that x100 on a PvP server. Why don't we just make it a PvE server and end the war for good.. we could all get to high RR together in peace.

Camlann PvP server was the best daoc server I ever played on, over half of my live play time was on a PvP server. There was a dedicated number of players on those servers and a lot of newbie farm cattle.

There was a PvP freeshard not long ago, it did not work out and I doubt it will again. As Gil said, it is very few that can handle the frustration of playing such a server full-time. Many just used it as a break from regular ruleset.

I still hope to see a good classic PvP freeshard one day though :)

There are more open PvP Games out right now then ever before, so i'm not sure why try to make daoc into one. I really like PvP , and PvP with loot even more, but all this games have issues with the rulesets, and it will attract the worst of the gaming community.

If you want to play some, try the Darkfall Freeshards or Mortal Online. I'm playing Gloria Victis atm, it's still Alpha, but a lot of Fun, not too hardcore and you even have 3 Fractions and Keep Sieges.

I'm sure this point of view is already being discussed in the player council.

No it's not.
Sorry, but there are no current plans for a PvP version of Uthgard.
