For a few days I was very sad to see the kind of PvP that Firefoot was having out in the moors, but the last 2 nights I have realized and seen how good Firefoot PvP can actually be if we get more people involved. Most of the main raid v raid fights are still around TA, which stinks, but there has been a lot more solo and small group action in different spots around the map.
Now, what I would propse to the PvP community is that we embrace more sparring and 1v1s, because its good fun for everybody. The last 2 nights we have set up spars and gotten about 20 people out from Freep and Creepside, and the spars were able to last for well over 2 hours each night. In my 4 years of playing this game, ive only ever seen that happen maybe 2 or 3 other times. So to be able to do that 2 nights in a row shows a lot about how good this server actually could be. I think we should try to get spars like these going most weeknights, because thats when the action seems to truly be dead, so if we can get spars going like this a lot more often, it will make the downtime on the server become a time when a lot of people have the opportunity to get a lot of points and have some fun. Ive heard a lot of people say that they dont like sparring and thats ok, but that doesnt mean that the people in the community that do like sparring cant. Sparring/1v1s can be great for people because they are a lot of fun, gives u time to bond with other people from the server, and most of all can make you a lot better at your class PvP and PvE wise. If you havent been out the last few nights, you should definitely come out and have some fun next time you hear about them going on, because I promise you will have some fun.
I also think it would be great for the server if we could set up an area that is established just for 1v1s. Most of the major PvP servers in LoTRO have one of these areas, and it works for all of these servers. A few great places for these are South of Lugz rez right near the River OP, or at the old Lugz Hotspot. Both of these places work for Freeps and Creeps and are away from map points but very accessible for both sides. Let me know what you think about this Firefoot!
And most importantly thanks to all the people involved in the last 2 nights who have been out there making these spars possible(Yubel, Fraiser, Connoly, Kayred, Taratheil, Shadowhowler, Lovi, Madeyes and many more). And hopefully this thread will make even more people want to come out and have some 1v1s.
