I think a 100hr PvP can work, as long as you don't expect to fight
the same person each time.  First person shooters are an obvious
example, you can connect to any server any time and start shooting,
no need to build up personal animosities.  At a slightly deeper
level would be something like the old Midpoint Void MUD where your
character is created on one side of a war, and anyone on the other
side is fair game.  So it doesn't matter when or how frequently you
log on or who you play with, there's still an enemy to play against.


Whose cruel idea was it for the word 'lisp' to have an 's' in it?
