The Magic of the PvP Community

During these past few months, I’ve been enamored with PvPing in Hydaelyn, the world of Final Fantasy XIV. In the past, I always looked for a game centered specifically around PvP which lead me to avenues such as Aion, and Blade & Soul, however, when I picked up FFXIV I had planned to give up the PvP life. I just wanted a nice place to relax and enjoy the world, rather than play competitively. That worked for me for about three years or so.

I hate these Bronze teammates! I should be in Diamond! (Sound familiar?)

We all struggle with being told we're not as good as we think we are. Competitive video games are often harsh reminders of our own shortcomings. There always is someone better than us, regardless of how good we may be. Competition, whether video games, traditional sports, spelling bees, pie-eating, or cooking (love me some Iron Chef), brings out the best and/or worst in all of us.
