Would this server style be played?

    PvP Survival, however, everyone is allowed access to the 'itemmenu' and 'finishbp' command, so it's just pure Industrial Warfare PvP. There's no need to set anything up, no value in losing bases etc, just pure PvP fun anarchy.


    So would anyone play that style of server, of pure madness and harnessing Empyrion's amazing PvP Engine and style at the core of the server and skipping out all of the grinding that comes beforehand?

    Definitely not my playstyle. I prefer cooperative PvE.

    I do this sometimes on my own private server with my cousin. The thing is we just do it for sv battles then wipe the sector afterward. I wouldnt want some random player on my server spawning junk in all the playfields, so no i think it would be a huge headache for the server owner cleaning up unless they wipe the server a lot. If its that way, it kimda takes the fun out of the game and you are just giving yourself items every time you need something.

    One thing i think the devs should allow for is for admins to allow their players a short list of the item menu, kinda like just the building blocks and nothing else. You never know bc that might be pretty fun but it kinda defeats the purpose of playing on a multiplayer server

    I don't play much PvP, but I would if, upon joining a server, I was allowed to bring in a BP of my choosing. Something I designed in creative mode. In other words, make it a skirmish mode or something, where as when I die, I get to pick another blueprint and play on. It's not so much survival as it is space fights all the time, which might be fun with player designed ships and bases and such.

    As a skrimish will do, otherwise you simply won't be able to respawn near the combat and only annoying flies from pve playfield to a fight wait for you.

    What if the server were to be wiped daily so people would just spawn in BP's again, but clear up lag? Also banning spammers

    As a free for all server, that would be fun. However i would still have to make people moderators.

    Empyrion would be really fun in this game mode if the combat was balanced
    like battlefield

    I would use that server to combat-test some ship designs. But otherwise it would just get boring quickly.

    Sounds like a big smash-up derby. I could see where it might be popular for events, but also not where folks might hangout. Or maybe they would and it would be a series of smash-ups.
