My PVE>PVP comparison

My buddy the other day had asked me what I thought about the comparison between PVE and PVP. Now, I've answered this question multiple times and typically no one ever disagrees. So I thought I would bring it to the forums and see if I'm just being a B* or am I actually correct? 

My PVE>PVP comparison

PVE rewards:

Mounts: New Mounts (NUMEROUS elites, Dungeons, Raids, Reputations come out every Xpac aswell as patch (sometimes patch))

Gear: Do a 30MIN 10+ Guarantee 380ilvl peice end of week (Doing dungeons has the same mechanics everytime)
Also able to trade gear peice during Raids/Dungeons = higher % on what you want
WQ give you gear aswell
Reputations also give gear (ex: at the start of BFA you were able to get 340 exalted pieces which was HUGE!!)

Azerite: 
Dungeons/Quests give loads of azerite! 
WQ give even more azerite
Which in turn give PVE adv. because neck reputation/Azerite lvl

Reputation: Current BFA gear, Mounts, Recipes

PVP Rewards:

Mounts: 7? Honor Mounts from BC? 
7 Vicious Mounts from Legion
Glad Mount (not to mention hard af for some)
PvP mount start of BFA 

Gear: Max Conquest 1hour + guarantee peice based off of CR cap (Some people struggle to pass 1600cr)

Azerite: Very small amount for Skirm/Arena and even BGs/RBGs. 

Reputation: lvl 30 boots from Arathi Highlands, No mounts, No recipes

I hope this brings to light that it seems to me that PVP is swept under the rug when it comes to New Mounts, Reputations, Gear, Recipes which in turn nearly forces people to PVE especially for BIS peices because in PVP you can only get 3 different trinkets? 

Also, when it comes to things being fixed, if something is wrong with a dungeon/raid, it's fixed immediately or on Tuesday. When it comes to PVP? Why have the Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest gates been opening at 4seconds on count for two expansions? It's not a huge deal, but it just goes to show..

If I'm wrong, please prove me wrong. Thx ^_^

Also, I have like 2000 medallions from pvp because you guys think allowing you to buy old xmogs and potions is good enough..

Who said Pve takes no skill?
You probably didn't even read this to realize I didn't mention skill at all.

k. As for azerite, I do just randoms and my neck is 24. Probably would be higher if I did more RBGs, but that part is fine for pvp.
The dungeons aren't that fun. I think BFA is designed to just play what you have fun doing and don't go after item level.

World mobs scale the higher item level you get.
m+ is the same regardless if you are 350 item level doing a +3 or 370 doing a +10
In pvp, the difference in a 350 item level and a 375 isn't that much due to "scaling magic"

I feel like item level means nothing anymore at 120.

Play what you enjoy

The beauty of BfA
Wasn't missing the point
You just stated something anyone with basic intelligence knows.
I stated something else.
Take the stick out of your rear not everything is about you.
you're missing the coursers and titles and pennants from prestige/honor level grinds, there's also pvp mogs and elite mogs for rated players.

PVE also completely lacks the adrenaline rush of PVP combat. the only competitiveness from PVE is beating someone on the dps chart, which you can't even do sometimes because you need to go be mechanic !@#$% for your raid to down a boss.

and there is also the fact that the trash in M+ isn't trying to think of new ways to outsmart you.
I don't disagree with you, OP. It may be that way from a numerical progression standpoint but PVP is still more enjoyable to some and they will take slower progression for the fun factor.

Well, tell them to lay off the low level BGs. Twinks can do some serious damage to a person... lead by example
What do twinks have to do with this thread? You really have an unhealthy obsession with that subject.

You don’t even know who people are. Was just backing you up, explaining why you don’t remember.
Yeah man, them's cousin fo sho!

Nice job avoiding answering my question too, by the way. /golfclap

Sorry just assumed since you were here you’d want to talk about them. Low level Bgs are still pvp.
Sounds like I struck a nerve in the other thread. Seriously, let it go. It's ok to lose. Nobody is laughing at you. Let your apparent paranoia free.
