    Hello there,

    It's been a long long time since I came here

    I have 2 questions.

    1- Can I will start a new avatar on a new server at the release ? Or I will be force to play on the old server ???

    2- At the release, can I will play only with PvP players or I will force to see non-PvP players on the online server ?

    Thanks in advance !

    Hey @Abydos good to see you again!

    1) You can definitely start a new character but it will be on the same server from before.

    2) Nope. You gotta play with us filthy PVE folks. ;)

    1) There is only one server.

    2) I suppose you could play in friends only mode and only befriend PVP players.

    Nothing changed in that regard. PM me for some details on PVP info. Good changes to combat and skills are coming to flatten the leveling curve.

    It doesn't, only open PVP scenes are restricted to multiplayer you're free to enable PVP and interact with PVP players in normal scenes.

    I believe the 10% bonus is only applied for PvP scenes in which case you have to be in multiplayer.

    Instancing in SotA works differently from the "usual" way. SotA is sharded by zone instances with population limits, not servers. You will always be able to meet everybody in the game. If you form a party, you can ensure being placed into the same instance with a friend. You will never end up on the low-pop dead server.

    The only way to see nobody but PvP players is in one of the forced-PvP zones, which are also forced-multi.

    You get a 10% bonus if you're in multiplayer mode and another 10% bonus if you're also flagged PvP. You get no bonus if you are playing solo/friends. It has nothing to do with the PvP scenes other than they force you into multiplayer mode and you're flagged while there.

    In order to see other players in solo/friends mode (solo and friends modes are exactly the same BTW), they have to be in your party. You cannot attack another player in your party even if you're all flagged for PvP.

    Get ready avatars, launch day approaches.
    Is that going to change something? Not much, IMHO.

    There might be a significant increase in forum PVP activities.

    sorry you ONLY get one 10%, that is if you are flagged PvP and playing in MP there is no 20% boost

    Answers were obvious. This is not a full pvp game, so we will always have non-pvp players, and I'm good with it. I knew from day 1 what I was paying for. And a new wipe is not even possible after 18 months.

    Welcome back anyway, hope you can enjoy the game at launch.
