PvP definition

PvP is a type of gameplay where players compete against each other in a game or activity.

PvP game types and examples

  • Multiplayer online battle arena games (League of Legends or Dota 2)
  • First-person shooter games (Call of Duty or Overwatch)
  • Fighting games (Mortal Kombat or Super Smash Bros)
  • Sports games (FIFA or NBA 2K)
  • Strategy games (StarCraft or Age of Empires)
  • Card games (Magic: The Gathering or Hearthstone)

Downsides of PvP games

  • Toxicity. PvP games can attract people who are rude and harass other players.
  • Cheating. People who want to win at any cost may resort to cheating, for example, DDoSing their opponents.
  • Imbalance. In some games, people who’ve played a lot have better weapons or armor, making the game less enjoyable when they’re paired with other, less experienced players.
