    The Big Free to Play MMORPG PVP Category List

    Copypasta from a post in another thread. This list shows what MMORPGs (Free to Play ones) have PK / Open PVP. In case **** doesn't update his list on MMOHut.com, this one will be with user input. If you find a game that's Free to Play and has PK / Open PVP, please reply to this thread so I can add it to the opening post. The thread also now has a Duel-Only / Arena Only Section
    1. PK / Open PVP / FvF (You're there!)
    2. Restricted PK / PVP / Servers / Channels
    3. Duels / Guild Wars / Arenas Only


    [B][U][SIZE="6"]Open World PVP / PK

    Only plays Magic DPS Classes, Healers and Machinist/Engineers.

    Restricted PK / PVP Zones / Channels / Servers
    This means that only certain areas, channels and servers. Sometimes you must flag yourself for PK / PVP. If having the flag off only disallows you to attack other players, but can still be attacked, the game goes in the Open World PVP / World PK section, not here. Also, if story / required quests are in PK / PVP Zones, they go into the first category, not here.

    9 Dragons
    Source: http://9dragons.************/guide/pvp/whatispk.shtml

    Angels Online * †
    PK / PVP Servers, AND, every territory war, channel one on all servers will have PK / Open PVP in territory capturable areas.

    Asda Story / 2
    PK Maps were added after I left the silly game. So I don't know what they were about. Asda 2 apparently gets rid of them, and now uses instanced territory wars.

    CABAL (§ Potential)
    PK-Based Channels. You need to know which color is which though, and I had a hard time finding out. Had to wait about two days to get a response, I don't even remember the color that is PK.

    Dungeons and Dragons Online
    Source: http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=349410 (Brawl / Bar Fights While Waiting for a Room)

    Dynasty Warriors Online
    This took 5 minutes longer than it should have, as the wikis all over google have no information whatsoever, nor the website. A GameSage there was flabbergasted at what I meant, then I told him the three categories, and he said to put it in this one.

    Eternal Lands (§ Potential)
    Source: http://www.eternal-lands.com/page/pkserver.php (The PK Server is 5 USD per character. Thus, not free to play.)

    Ether Saga Odyssey / Online
    PK-Based Channels and Territory Wars in the field. Channels show (PK / PVP) next to them if they are as such.

    Everquest 2
    PVP Servers: http://www.everquest2.com/faq#Q9

    Florensia (§ Potential, if not already.)
    This may be moved to category one, as I do not know if it has PVE Servers / channels. Source: http://www.gamershell.com/news_76636.html

    FlyFF
    The game is restricted to dueling, arenas, siege. Save for their Demian Server, which is PK: http://flyff.gpotato.com/?m=game&a=pvp

    Forsaken World
    Restricted to PVP Servers and flag system.

    Grand Fantasia FR / USA († Partial) * (§ Potential due to Eden Eternal)
    PK / PVP Servers. If you die on one of these servers, you lose EXP and money and durability as if you were killed by a monster. No disciplinary effects, actions are taken at all at PKs. There is only a 5 second invincible buff protecting you from PKs in this game if you set your spawn point outside of a big city. NPC Villages outside the three cities are not safe zones. Unlike Perfect World.

    Hero Online §
    Source: http://heroonline.synthasite.com/new-pk-system.php

    Iris Online
    PK Areas. In these Areas, you get more EXP from monsters. You can also get quests for special materials that make Purple-Grade armor / weapons that are stronger than most equipment. You can, however, go the long way around. If you go into a PK Area that has a botter camping the portal, you will not be able to escape the PK Area easily. As you don't have spawn points. If you die you have two options: Spawn 10 meters away from the portal or so you last came from, or spawn where you died. PKs who are mages can sit in an NPC Village and attack you as you come toward them, with spells. You, however, cannot attack them, as they are in a safe zone, and you aren't.

    Jade Dynasty
    PVP Realms / Channels: http://jd.perfectworld.com/gameinfo/advinfo/pvp

    Knight Online (Moving to netgame / mgame)
    Source: http://www.gamersfirst.com/knightonlineworld/?q=en/pvp

    Legend of Martial Arts
    According to Google, it has PVP and PVE Realms (a la Ether Saga.)


    Mu Online
    PK Servers. There are also guild wars on the Non-PK Servers. On PK Servers, you have a chance to lose items if killed. There is also a PK Point system, changing your name color and whatnot. You lose more EXP at death if you kill too many players.

    Perfect World
    Server-Restricted PK, You need to join a PK Server, and when you hit 30, you cannot un-flag yourself for PK. NPC Villages are the only places (maybe dungeons?) where you can't PK. If you are killed by a player, there is a higher chance to drop non-bound items. Monsters can also make you drop non-bound items. If your name is red / pink, you have an even higher chance to drop said items. In a PVE Server, after you flag yourself for PK, you must wait several hours before you can un-flag yourself. Avoid the central quest hub north of Archosaur City, it has PK duelers, and if you fly over them, you may get one-shotted by a mage.

    Prius Online
    According to MMOHut's Weekly Recap of what's been happening, Number 53 Issue (2 minutes 50 seconds in), the game will be merging all of its PK / PVP Servers into one, and opening a new PVE Exclusive server. The official announcement of the PVE Server can be found here, and its name is Primus.


    Ragnarok Online
    Restriced to Private Servers and an Official Server (Not US.) Guild Dungeons also have guild versus guild content. They have PK events every now and then in the main city.

    Runes of Magic
    Servers are PK Restricted. In Non-PK Servers, duels and guild wars / arenas are the only way to PVP.

    Scions of Fate §
    Server Restricted PK.

    Seal Online (§ Potential)
    Channel / Server Restricted, Source: http://sealonline.wikia.com/wiki/PvP

    Shaiya
    There are "Difficulty" Settings. At the highest difficulty, if you die, your character is deleted. The lowest I believe has no PK / Open PVP.

    Tibia §
    According to Gerberos, there are three options / worlds; Optional PvP: PvP only enabled if both parts agree. Open PvP: You can attack anyone but are punished by the skull system if you kill too many players. Hardcore PvP: Kill anyone anywhere without having to worry about skulls/skull hunters.

    Total: 24

    Shaiya has faction vs faction pvp so in this case lighties vs darkies and as far i have played lvl 40 in normal and hard mode, on lvl 15 and lvl 30 there were lobby based maps like factions battlegrounds which are mostly specificly meant for pvp where they were conquering altars and pvping each other gaining points for kills which could be later returned for charcter attributes but also had quests in field but only few at which point of progressing them opposite faction could attack u, then there was map for 1-60 or somethin with open world, altars, quests and even dundgeons where opposite factions could ambush each other.

    add mu online
    they have guild wars and if you are on a pvp server then open pk
    the penalties are that you are at risk of dropping items if you are a killer
    if you pk a killer (red name) you can become a hero and lose less exp if you die and your probability of dropping an item is less.

    Rappelz is another open world pvp game people use this to "De-level" by dying and losing exp and be able to grind on easy to kill mobs and farm job points to increase the skills they have.high levels will hunt down lower leveled people to accomplish it.

    Kal online not many players play it and new aren't going to play it but still it has
    Duel-Ask someone for duel
    Assassin-Put assassin mask on and kill everyone everywhere except in safezones.
    Triangulare battles-Registering for tournament.
    Castle wars- Defend/Attack Castle - Install flag-Win
    Protecting leader-Two guilds fight each other; one is left with the task of defending their own guild leader while he prays. There are a total of three rounds. If a leader is killed, or the round ends, the roles are then reversed and the defenders become the attackers.
    Suffering Valley-Two guilds must fight monsters to gain points, higher level monsters are worth more points. Killing opposing players also rewards your team more points. The team with the most points after 1 hour is declared the winner.
    Destructing Key Points-The goal of this mode is for two teams to destroy towers. After three small towers are taken down, the giant tower can be destroyed. The team who has killed the most opposing players and destroyed the most towers wins.

    So yeah so many pvp options,but game in wrong hands.

    Bloodline Champions is missing on the list.
    It's apure PvP arena-based and fast-paced game, I think that game caters PvP best.

    MOBAs don't go on the list, because it's common-sense that they are pure-pvp.

    I have one request for you.
    Can you put also at name EU/NA?
    Would be pretty cool in my case which I'm lazy to type everygame and look if they have EU servers.
    Adding the link would be too much so just EU / NA in ( ) would be nice.

    Almost all, if not all of these are NA. I don't play EU games, and don't look to see if they are EU / NA. I am from the USA of course.

    I usually don't list side-scrollers because they usually have arena-only PVP. Unless they're MOBA like DDTank. MOBA aren't listed because MOBAs are just PVP MMORPGs with no real story.
