Glossary Entry: PVP

Quick Definition

This stands for "Player VS Player".

To be more specific, this is an option that can be enabled on a per-server* basis in certain online games. When playing on these servers*, players are able to attack one another, encouraging competitive and aggressive playstyles.

However, not everyone likes this sort of gameplay, so servers* where this feature is enabled are usually clearly marked.

The opposite of PVP is PVE*.
