I play pvp because I like the challenge in playing with other humans, and when I manage to kill my opponent, even being a griefer, usually use the bow animation. (this seems to piss even more those actually).
I feel your revolt against the online competitive environment, there are 70% toxic ppl, and 30% “normal” ppl, most of the 70% usually are kids, but I found some mature ppl to share the same sadness aswell.
There is room for both crowds, being a Conan Multplayer game, it is in fact surprising to have a PvE/Coop aspect, because lets face, Conan is a barbarian, “harsh and brutal world”, those things yell PVP! Dont’t get me wrong, I do a lot of PvE, being a confessor, more than PvP because PvP encounters for obvious reasons doesnt happen that much.
