Player vs. Environment

Commonly referred to as PvE or PvM by most online games and gamers. Simply put, it is the player-controlled character (you) competing against the game world and its computer-controlled denizens, as opposed to Player vs. Player.

Additional notes:

  • Player vs. Environment is the dominant form of MMORPG game.
  • Also (incorrectly) known as "Player vs. Everything/Everyone".
  • In some online games PvE is known as Player versus Monster (PvM for short).

The following facets are considered under the PvE ruleset on all servers except Siege and Mugen.
