Should Open World PvP be more like DAOC?

Ilum is an interesting planet.

Half of it is just a PVE area. The other Half is setup for open PVP with objectives.

The planet itself is actually quite a bit smaller than some of the other higher level planets. Belsavis is by far the largest. I would want the planet larger than it actually is as the PVP area doesn't make for a good "roaming group" place.

As more people hit 50 I'm sure the PVP on the planet will improve to where there are actually Republic players there.

Open World PvP on Ilum: The planet of Ilum currently allows for open world PvP even on a PvE server, but the mechanics and incentives of the planet are not in as intended yet. We’re working on longer term goals for the planet and for other PvP areas, but expect to see some interim adjustments in January - such as more respawn points to focus conflicts, restricting Companion Characters from the area, and revisions to rewards. Ilum will also become a major source of Valor. Valor buffs will increase and decrease based on the objectives your faction owns. These buffs increase the amount of Valor you receive per player kill. However they do not give anything in and of themselves, so players will still need to defeat other players for significant Valor rewards.

Even better!
Quote:
Additionally, daily and weekly missions will require player kills to complete. Player kills for quests and Valor credit will have diminishing returns per player killed. So, the more players that are fighting other players, the better it is for everyone.!

I like the fact that they are going to add more incentives for people to PvP on Ilum but I don't like the idea of adding player kills to the daily/weekly quest. This is a bad idea for lower population servers and server where the Republic is severely outnumbered. They just won't show up and grind out their valor in the warzones. They should make it a bonus quest that you can do daily/weekly that give you extra commendations if you complete it. Leave the daily/weekly capture points quest the way they are.
