Although I´m more of a pve-player (about 90 % of the games I play I mostly pve in, so I´m your typical carebear) I think you have been neglected too long as you are also part of this (with the right amount of moderation) awesome community.
Therefore rejoice as things are about to change soon. On Massively there is an exclusive interview with our new evil Overlord Joel. And look what he said when it comes to PvP:
Interviewer: In your AoC game director's letter, you talked about looking forward to the new Conan movie to incorporate elements of it into the game. Moving forward, will there be a focus again on the PvP element of the game?
Joel: Absolutely, I have heard a lot of voices crying out for more focus on PvP in Age of Conan. I think that if you have a game that incorporates PvE and PvP, you need to give some love to both. In The Secret World, we have made updates to PvP every time we have made updates to PvE (whether people are happy with the updates is another discussion), and I'd like to get into the same practice on Age of Conan.
