For those of you counting down the days till Star Wars: The Old Republic you have probably already checked out the Guild Headquarters page and noticed the three types of servers on the pagge, PvP, PvE and RP. Now these are pretty common amongst MMORPGs but BioWare just announced that they will add another type of server RP-PvP (and the RP servers will become RP-PvE). Here is a break down of the four different types and what you can expect. PvE (Player vs Environment) ? Players will have to manually flag themselves if they wish to engage in PvP outside of designated Warzones and Open World PvP areas. PvP (Player vs Player) ? Players are automatically flagged for PvP outside of the designated 'safe' areas (such as Origin Worlds, Capital Worlds, and the Republic/Imperial Fleets; see below for more info). RP-PvE ? Players are encouraged to roleplay and act 'in-character' while playing on an RP-PvE server. Players must manually flag themselves if they wish to engage in PvP outside of designated Warzones and Open World PvP areas. RP-PvP ? Players are encouraged to roleplay and act 'in-character' while playing on an RP-PvP server. Players are automatically flagged for PvP outside of the designated 'safe' areas (such as Origin Worlds, Capital Worlds, and the Republic/Imperial Fleets; see below for more info). Because these servers have just been added and are not available on the pre-launch Guild Headquarters page, guilds that are on an RP server will be placed on RP-PvP servers by default. If you want a guild on a RP-PvP server you will have to create manually in the game.
