No they wouldn't. I mean, people would turn up to kill each other, but the kind of person who cares about some mushrooms or pink rocks is also the kinds of people who can't win a fight for them. lol.

Maybe instead of trying to force people to fight, just put them in a sandbox where they can kill each other and watch them kill each other?

If you wanna fight without a chance of dying, with no real reward there's already a way to do that

It results in the winners getting stronger, becoming more likely to win, repeat until the winners are too strong for any competition. It'd be nice if the reward dynamic was more like the winner gets to not do one of their chores for the week, but that'd basically require a massive overhaul of all the stat systems.

Winner gets a goblin slave to harvest their crops for a few days, maybe? Or winner gets magic dye that lets them change the color of their clothes.

Regarding the problem you bring up; this would mean you'd have to get out of the safety zone yourself and be vulnerable to others. People would just use alts for luring people out or breaking walls.
I think building walls would never be profitable for anyone if they are handbashable.


Titans would not care about being vulnerable to others, particularly not people significantly weaker than themselves. And I don't know if you've ever tried handbashing a wall, but it's not quick unless you have decent tools and decent strength. There would be plenty of time for experienced PVPers to run around slaughtering alts and local sprucecaps.

I think PVP events in an alternate map like Valhalla might work, though. On the main map people would definitely use buildings, animals or something else to screw over the nabs before they could reach the safe zone.
