for those of you who arent yet aware, we have lost several of our higher ranked creeps recently. theyve all fled this server and moved over to silverlode where they have a very different mindset when it comes to pvp.
on silverlode (and brandywine) they have more than the massive zergballs of ranged classes and the ezmoder wargpacks. they have many,many players who wander around solo or in small groups looking for a different type of fight. ive seen on numerous occasions the zergball stumbling across the small groups/solo freeps and simply ignoring them and carrying on their way. now why do they do this? because there is no sport in 15v1.
if you enjoy playing in large groups with your friends then thats fine. but there are occasions when a large group of freeps is roaming about the moors and the creeps simply cannot muster the numbers to offer them any kind of resistance.so creeps are given no real option but to hide out in npcs or simply log out. this happens on both sides and it is killing our pvp.
why not break that group of 10 up into a few smaller groups of 3-4 and wander about? from my experience there is much more fun to be had in random encounters at tr hs with smaller groups than watching the stalemate at ta lawn.
i am solo 98.4% of the time and im sure youve seen me out there and are aware by now that i dont have a chance against your group of 3wl a defiler and 2 reavers. im talking to you IW . so why not let me pass or maybe even send your reaver at me alone? Firefoot could certainly benefit from a more "respectful" approach to our pvp. i dont enjoy getting ganked by the 6 of you and im sure you dont enjoy getting wiped by 15 taters. so lets try to even some of our fights up and maybe there wil be more fun all around
now im sure this post is going to get the usual cynical responses of,"you dont like it then leave!" or, "learn2groupnub!" and im sure i could list off all the likely names who will be responding in this manner but there is no purpose in that. if you like FF pvp as it is then thats great. for you. many of us dont and are desperate for some sort of change. there is a reason many of our more "skilled" and high ranked players have left.
so next time you see me running from tr rez to gta to lug rez,maybe dont send the zerg after me and have a single reaver/warg do the job. i know when im camping rez i allow the greenies to pass unharmed. except for an ambush followed by some groundrolling
oh and we have the freavers coming soon so lets give them a reason to stay. liven up the pvp a bit 'round here folks. i love you all.
