There are some people who are not aware of what PVP and PVE are. These are terms that are normally used by gamers because this refers to the environment that they can get exposed to while playing games. PVP means Player vs. Player. This means that you will be combating with other players that are on the same page. When you say PVE, this means Player vs. Environment.

This can mean that you are fighting with a computer which can make playing games easier for some people. People usually have a preference between PVP and PVE depending on their skills and the things that they want to achieve while playing their favorite games.

PVP stands for Player Vs. Player, while PVE stands for Player Vs. Environment. These parameters are used to describe the kind of game environment a player is participating in, especially in an online game. In the case of PVE, the player combats against non-players, or monsters to accomplish his tasks. In the process of playing the game, the player can actually be required to have few 'Player Vs. Player' combats encounter to achieve the victory needed. In PVE, the player fights against a computer-manipulated enemy, which usually takes a long time.

In this scenario, you will need to understand the attacking strategy of the enemy, and combats it win. On the other hand, when it comes to the PVP, you will be fighting against a fellow human being. It will require more application of your intelligence as the human opponent is most likely of higher intelligence than the computer-manipulated enemy. The PVP does not usually take a long time like the PVE.
