Here's a question for the community. What essential characteristics define an enjoyable PvP experience for you?
Do you need to face an enemy that has a chance of killing you, or do you enjoy catching your target unawares? Do you enjoy large fleets, or do you prefer fighting solo? Are there specific kinds of ships you prefer? Where do you prefer to find your PvP?
And, here's the big question: Which of these are truly essential? If you had to boil down your PvP preferences to that which is common to all of them, what would remain? What really satisfies you?
And, just as importantly, when you hear someone brag about or post a kill in local, what aspects make you want to reach through the screen and strangle them for bragging about it?
What kinds of fights give you the shakes? Let me know in the comments!
