In multiplayer games losing has consequence, you didn't win.
If you're not first you're last.
Looking at the end of match scoreboard for 5 seconds before it reset doesn't really count.
Like gambling with fake money vs real. One gets your heart pumping, the other is boring as fk.
Plus with MMO's it changes the entire game, politics actually matter, people have to think before they act, skill meant something - not gear, no more meaningless zerging, or coming back into battle right after death, pve isn't boring as fk because you are always looking over your shoulder etc etc...
These days you get a gold star and a pat on your back for dying.
PVE = gear grind so you can do better in PVP
PVP = point grind in instances for better gear, so you can do ever better at uhh... said PVP grind. Alternatively play musical castles and attack the wall for half an hour.
Fkn Yay! Console gaming at it's best.
