    Default A fair Duel

    Hello guys and happy new year!

    I love PvP , and by saying that I mean 1v1 duels , I'm a duelist , and also a soloist , a lonewolf... I don't like teams ...
    I don't like to rely on others to win, all I want is a fair man to man fight , so please don't suggest MOBAs.

    I want a F2P 3D MMORPG or Action MMO (non-target) that is simply not P2W , just like C9 in CBT and OBT when the level cap was 50 ... the game was awesome , I got level 50 in like 2 weeks , farmed the best armor and stuff in 1 week , went to ranked pvp and got to the top 20 ... but now it is P2W , I need like 3 weeks to get the max level and months to farm armor just to have a chance against people who invest alot of money in the game ....and I lost interest in it.

    so... I want something like C9 in the 50s , 1v1 pvp , no hard grinding (farming should be 1 month max)..and after that I can go into pvp against people with the same items ... or close ... and I can then have that intense fair duel.

    summary : non-P2W F2P 3D MMO without much effort (there will be effort ofcourse) ....... and exclude (shooters , MOBAs , 2D games and sports or racing ) you may include private servers for any MMORPG.

    :rolleyes: I'm so far UuuuuP :rolleyes:

    I don't like Dragon Nest's character design ... I think you know what I'm talking about and Star Craft is not F2P.

    Finding a well balanced 1v1 game is difficult. I say it is impossible with an MMORPG. There is always some kinky balance issue that will make the game taste bad for you.

    To help add to the thread, I also suggest Dragon Nest since it has a system built to revolve around 1v1 duels. But unfortunately you don't like its character design, there's not much I can think of in that genre that supports duels as well as it did. I'm not sure about balance but I'm pretty sure it had a decent skill ceiling judging from the 1v1 korean duels:

    EDIT: couldn't get the embed vid to work, sorry

    Looks pretty fast paced, which was one of the reasons I got interested in it. However, from the last time I played there were issues with latency since korean devs are goddamn fools when it comes to netcode- instant buzzkill for a competitive gamer when there are better B2P options out there.

    There is really no fully fair 1vs1 F2P MMORPG. After all like 80% of the income from F2P MMORPGs comes from players who pay to have an advantage in PVP.
    The only game I've commonly seen to be said that it's fully fair is League of Legends, but since you excluded MOBAs I'd say what you want doesn't exist.

    Dragon Nest has quite good and balanced PVP, but that's mainly because in Dragon Nest 80% of the 1vs1 outcome is skill and only 20% is equipment.
    Still your equipment will be significantly better if you pay.

    B2P options in Dragon Nest are mostly (though my info might be outdated):
    - expand inventory, the free inventory is super small, without expanding it at least once you can't take many items from a dungeon run with you
    - items that help you upgrade your equipment, like protection from breaking and increase chance and stuff like that
    - items that can seal equips so you can sell them or give them to another character, this is required for really rare equips, normal equips don't need that
    - costumes, most of those also give small stat boosts
    - your normal "more exp" items

    Ah sorry, misunderstood. :-)

    Well B2P you have The Secret World and Guild Wars 2 and that's basically it, isn't it?

    The Secret World is definately a solo game and 100% balanced cash shop, but it's mostly PVE (I never played far enough to even have any PVP, so not sure about it). It's definately worth playing, though.

    Guild Wars 2 has balanced PVP. I think it's more guild vs guild than 1 vs 1, though.

    There's one undisputable fact: you will not get a fair duel in an MMORPG, even more so if it's a F2P with a cash shop. There's always this "buy/grind more gear" factor. The only exception I can think of right now is Guild Wars 2 with sPvP, but that is team based. I can't recall if there's dueling, but if it is, it's pretty insignificant and only used to practice, I'm sure.

    If you want good 1v1 games, you have to look outside the MMORPG zone:

    - Starcraft 2, currently the most competitive 1v1 game
    - Quake Live (duel), an older game, but known for it's competitive dueling
    - Street Fighter, not sure how big the PC community is, but I know that it has high skilled 1v1

    Majority of the time pvp is broken. Last time I went back for the new patch my cabal friends was saying pvp was broken, that was about I guess a month ago. It's also not very balance and is most definitely best if you have reach some end game content gear to compete.
