The massively multiplayer game system surely changed the experience for all of us when it started and considerably increased the stakes. In the early 00s, the expansion of the multiplayer experience took over the world and still dominates the gaming market. Esport events became even more popular and the gaming industry never looked back.
However, some events in MMO left their mark and will be remembered forever in history, such as the epic deletion of Onyxia by Leeroy Jenkings, or some of the final matches in StarCraft, or boss kills in WoW. Be that as it may, these 5 main selections represent events with the most money spent or most of the players involved, or they can simply be situations in which players did everything possible to beat the system and make the game a hell for other opponents. These are our 5 Best MMO PVP Moments in history.
- Fansy The Famous Bard
For those who don't know, EverQuest is one of MMORPG's pioneers, released in 1999. It is a 3D fantasy game developed by 989 Studios and Verant Interactive, and was made for PC and Sony Online, which was quite progressive for that age. The game surely moved the limits and was ahead of its time, with a fairly advanced engine in the late 90s.
This PVP event occurred on the EverQuest PVP server called Sullon Zek and takes us to a player who named his character Fansy . Now, the rules of this particular server allowed new players to take over the world before PVP was enabled, making them invulnerable to player-based damage until they reached level 6. This was a new server, launched when the game was quite popular, so many high level players migrated there to get ahead of others and settle in the brave new world.
Fansy the Bard was a newly created bard and in EverQuest, the bards were able to summon creatures. It reached level 5 and then stopped accumulating experience to retain invulnerability indefinitely, and began to summon sand giants that summoned spam. EverQuest was not as advanced as WoW, for example, where players simply cannot use any skills in low-level characters in their home area, allowed to aim and attack. The only difference is that, although the fantasy was invulnerable, nobody else was, and the giant army of accumulated sand could overwhelm even high-level characters and defeat them.
He ended up having fun and annoying many EverQuest professionals, but he was quickly informed and the eliminated game moderators did not forbid it, but simply eliminated his invulnerability. Fansy was killed and persecuted indefinitely since then.

This final circle was an epic clash of 100 of those who are considered the true professional players of Fortnite. Halfway through the game, the game becomes an extravagance of disconcerting architecture, but when the storm becomes narrow towards the end, things become really hectic and crazy fun. But, don't trust us, look at yourself and feel your adrenaline levels rise:
- World of Warcraft – Southshore vs. Tarren Mill
Now, when World of Warcraft came out, it certainly did not invent or reinvent the genre as many say it did, but very well pushed the envelope even more than its predecessors. And, well, he did his part in popularizing the MMO phenomenon, but in addition to his online socialization interactions, the best part of WoW for most players was his PvP combat. It was at WoW where the term & # 39; ganking & # 39 ;. was invented.
In the first year of its launch, WoW had no battlefields or arenas, and yet Alliance and Horde could attack anywhere in the world, on any server. Some areas quickly became hot spots for these massive PVP wars, and Hillsbrad Foothills was the first. It is located just north of Ironforge, and has cities for Alliance and Horde, very close. The cities had guards but no walls or fences. At certain points, there were several hundred players waging a war at the same time. And the strangest thing was that there was no reward or target for PVP. Players of pure amazement still remember today.
