PVP

1. What does PvP stand for in online gaming?

Player versus player

PvP games are those in which players play against other players, rather than a game's AI and NPCs. Some games include both player versus computer (PVC) and player versus player modes, while others include only one or the other.

Many PvP games pit players against each other in deathmatches (DMs). Others force players to conquer other players' territory and/or defend their own. Some popular online PvP games include League of Legends (LoL), Call of Duty (CoD), Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Hearthstone, and Civilization.

Example
