<p>Test is a PvE server, not a PvP server.</p><p>It has no form of PvP except for dueling and you recieve NO XP for duels.</p><p>This change is NOT BEING TESTED for unforseen concequences or how it will affect things.</p><p>They are throwing this change at us, pretending that "It's on Test" when it is NOT on test.</p>

<p><span style="color: #339900;">the first one i think never took too far off...i hadnt realized they reopened a server dedicated to pvp test if they have. (i know they had a pvp designated test server during rok beta though i didnt have much time to spend on it)</span></p><p><span style="color: #339900;">this isnt a complaint or anything (i didnt test on it either)...just saying that it wasnt participated in much, and the couple beta tests ive been in, there was no real organization to pvp testing that i encountered really...exception somewhat being the original pvp beta alongside the kos beta. the recent rok beta i didnt play at all in really, nor followed much on the forum - so i am unsure what was talked about and done there (possibly alot of this has to do with what was delved into from teh more focused pvp testers there)</span></p><p><span style="color: #339900;">pvp changes are inherently i think hard to test with the playerbase of teh game as the subscriber playerbase all have agendas...roflz.</span></p><p><span style="color: #339900;">i think the biggest problem here is players not realizing their ability to rechange things, or further adjust changes through other subtleties in mechanical design.</span></p><p><span style="color: #339900;">virtual worlds are the same as the real one in a sense that they are "things" in states of flux - fluctuations seem to be imo results of necessity rather than invention in both the former and latter...often enough.</span></p>

I thought it was implicitly understood that you'd get as much xp for a PvP kill as you would if your combat experience wasn't locked. Maybe that's just me but that's how I always interpreted it.

<span style="color: #00ff00;"><span style="color: #339900;">that very well may be</span>, <span style="color: #339900;">however all ingame settings it should be noted</span>, <span style="color: #339900;">are quite subject to change and at times without notice</span>.</span>

Test PvP and Test PvP aren't the same server.

Also, it's not like getting XP for PvP kills is something they're just now adding. It's just the most of the lockers have had xp turned off for so long that they forgot how the rest of us always get xp for a PvP kill. The only thing that is going to be different is that disabling combat experience only applies to killing mobs now. If you want to see how the xp gain rate is going to be, turn on your xp and go kill someone. That should give you a pretty good baseline for how much xp you're going to get for your particular tier. And since I know you'll all be up in arms because in T2 you get a lot of xp for a kill, it does get slower as you progress. I'm leveling my zillionth alt through T6 atm, and I get less than 1% per kill if I remember correctly.
