Well, I am on my way home from a very VERY long day yesterday that went from about 8am to 1:30am with Turbine. Met some awesome people. and yes, got to spend a lot of time in the pit. I am suprisingly pleased regarding the discussions I had and it has given me a lot of hope for the future of PVP. I think you guys being hopeful as well would be just.
I have not had my post discussion yet so I am not sure what can and cannot be revealed as of yet. So I will go over some posts, but I think you guys will be pleased.
I don't know if audacity should be removed...I do think it at least needs to be rebuilt. I will say I am on the fence on whether or not it should or should not remain in the game. I've thought about both. So I do see what you are saying from that side.
More things to spend commendations on...YES. Most defanetly. With that, I think the cap should be changed. And depending on what people want to be able to buy. Maps, skins, jewelry, consumables. Suggestions would be great :)
6 armor sets!?!? Good gracious man!! I personally am not a set bonus person. Mostly because they are one sided and the pvp set bonuses can completely negate the most basic of creep abilities. I would wait to check out the new class overhauls before bringing out what set bonuses should be. There is no idea on what kind of true balance will come with the new changes to freeps and the creep for Helms Deep.
I like the ideas regarding more spending for freeps. LI damage types, etc. I would like to see some nice cloaks come in. (similar to PVE raid cloaks) PVE only players dont understand what it takes to get geared up and ranked in the moors and it is just as time consuming(if not more) as a raid. SO why not have stats on jewelry or cloaks that is equivilant or close to raid gear?
I will say you hit the nail on the head regarding time and resources. I do not think you should give up just yet. (this is not a Turbine pitch trust me). After yesterday, I think people will be happy.
Hopefully the end of this thread finds you somewhat more hopeful everyone. However feel free to smack me around some more :)
Forgive the spelling mistakes. I am beyond exhausted.
