A year ago, one of my husband's best friends left our guild and transferred his main to a high-population PVP server for various reasons, but mainly because our server was too small of a PVP fish for him to be happy.
I'm the exact opposite. Today I got incredibly frustrated over the fact that the ONLY reason I haven't bought Dustfire the title "of the Shattered Sun" is because nobody on my server will understand why I bought it. They'll think "Oh, that's just another moron who has to have the latest fad to show everyone how much money (s)he has." Because that's the only reason to do anything on a PVP server. To figure out whose is bigger.
Even though they'll never read this, allow me to type a message to the impotent losers on my server: Yours is. Because I don't even HAVE one. Idiots.
I don't want to be on a PVP server. I don't like it. I hate the constant aggressiveness and the way even friends seem to be in competition with each other all the time. I hate that I can't dress my characters up in pretty clothes without worrying that someone will come along and laugh at me for having my character in level 24 greens. I hate the gloating of the Haves and the wild vengeful ambition of the Have Nots.
I hate all of it.
It's always a letdown after I come back from my little role-playing breaks on Birdfall.
And the only reason I stay is because people I love are there. I'm not going to leave like my husband's friend did. But if my guild ever falls apart (unlikely, but hey), I'm transferring to a Normal RP server. At least as far as today's mood goes, I am.
 Okay, I won't transfer. Even if my guild falls apart, there's a core group I'll want to stay with no matter what. :P
