    ...is it just an abandoned idea or does Turbine ever planned to fix it?

    I am sure they plan to revisit it one day, but right now they have bigger problems and things to work on.

    do YOU see the leaderboard anywhere? Nope, it's gone.

    They basically took pvp out the back and shot it in the head.

    At least they are "kinda" upfront about it and took the leaderboards off instead of telling us they will get it running asap.

    NO KIDDING!!! They left the 'please wait patiently while we try and fix this' up for months. apparently they have decided to go w/ the 'lets just toss it out and see if anyone notices' route. i would really like to see the pvp system implemented to somehow make it worth while.

    and imvho that was the best thing to do. PvP is not part of any AD&D module that I am aware of and I have played Dungeons and Dragons for the past 20 years(yes that is sence 1987 for those of you trying to do the math, and yes I am that old please do not make a big deal of it =P). PvP may be a big part of MMORPG's but for one based on a game as old as Dungeon's and Dragon's I can see why Turbine would rather playcate the die hard D&D Gamers than people who just want to go around ganking people just because they can.
    "Possibly we humans can exist without actually having to fight. But many of us have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If we kill people to protect ourselves and this future, then what sort of future is it, and what will we have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"

    just curious; you have played DnD for 20yrs and have never had any PvP? I have played for over 6yrs and every campaign I have been in has had a mage who wants to secretly dominate the party, or a greedy rogue, or a fighter that wants to prove his strength over another melee, or a city tournament in which players will have to face off against eachother, etc. as far as being a part of any set module issued, well i don't see mages doing 2000 points of damage at lvl14 there either. DDO is not DnD. And in this game PvP should not be abandonned.

    Either you need your eyes checked or you miss read my statement. I never said I never heard of PvP in AD&D. I said it was not a main part of the AD&D modules. In all the AD&D I've played PvP has ALWAYS been at the "DUNGEON MASTERS"(you know the guy who tells you how your adventure is doing?) discession. And of all the times I've been DM I never saw the point of adding a childish thing like PvP into my campeign. It's not needed. And DDO IS D&D. You see the first 2 letters in DDO? it stands for Dungeons & Dragons. Plus the Dev's said during pre-beta and all 3 stages of beta that they were going to stick to the core rules of D&D and when someone can point to a core D&D book that explains PvP for the Pen and Paper game. I think that it should be left out of the MMO version as well.
