Why do people constantly claim D&D had nothing to do with PvP?
Have you played D&D 4e in exclusively PvP? Sure you can have group disagreements and players attack each other, but full on PvP battle, with capture bases mode?
The problem is that 4e isn't meant to be played in PvP. As ALL players are rather glass cannons. A striker class could drop down another player in one turn.
So to balance this, monsters have padded HP and defenses, other players don't.
Mind you, this is all PnP D&D. Neverwinter MMO is of course balanced differently, so the PvP sort of works.
The only problem I have with it is that you are forced to use it, if you want to do Epic Dungeons. (In order to do them you need certain gear rating, which you can buy with glory points you get from doing PvP)
