Funnily enough, I was just talking about how you could use DEs to your advantage if your getting chased. If you got PFA'd, you could turn towards the DEs, and with better AI, DEs would just ignore the PFA'd person anyway, so they would aim the chasers. Now... you could call that annoying, and I would call it strategy and diversity. Using your environment to your advantage. If you want to fight evently anyway, open world isn't the way to go, and you should just PvP in the league.
Using DE to escape tactic is very old and is most efficient with use of inv pot - when it comes to fight with DE itself when you attack som1 on DE pit you basically always go on PFA anyway. My example was more about IG pit being for mage and DE for war - with pfa you simply hit them with no chance of dying but on DE pit there can exp like 3-4 wars on IG pit 1 mage here is the biggest difference;p(not to mention that getting to t3 takes some time so most ppl dont want to waste time for that so its also a safer spot:D).
I like the PvP league idea a lot but i hope PvP will still be present in daily server routine as it was ;p
I can tell that you working hard on Oly3 but communication between you and players is hmm poor ;p - if its possible it would be nice if you could give any update - there is no need of deadline but still any info is usually better than none...
