Current State of Ettenmoors
Well time for me to do a word:
As we all know, and here we go again, current balance in ettenmoors is way off any limits, but it goes even worse when having more and more numbers in fights.
These days we all know action is just unbareable. Every day I get even more annoyed about the action.
In former updates, action could be shifted with raid action, but this update is just a non-go for any raids.
Thus we are fed up with grams action, every day, in and out.
Ofcourse we have sometimes keep fights, but these are just a good excuse, to farm creeps over and over, till they dont show up anymore, in which either a gy becomes camped or the keep is getting capped.
In these instances, freeps dont show any intention aswell, to have anything be left for creeps and dont think twice to capture the whole map with the relic buff.
Where in former updates, there were some agreements (yes they were broken), but atleast both freeps and creeps would look for balance in both buffs, as outposts and action, current playstyle is merciless.
And although many players on both creep and freep side already left, freeps continue to destroy ettenmoors.
Ofcourse we cant point any fingers to 1 side!
Creepside at this point just lacks both leadership and high ranks. Most creep players at this point have an average rank 5-6, and although this isnt 'that' bad, it is nothing compared with freepside.
The average rank here would be 9-10. Of course for any who want to quote on this, no I dont have any proof, nor any calculations to justify this, but I think many would agree that creepsides misses it's high ranks.
Another thing in creepside in EN, is it's unbalance in rolled classes. The average creep player would be a warg. Rest of the classes are simply underrolled, yet in grams camp, there is always more defilers and BA's around.
And then we move on to turbine....
Why can a minstrel use an 18k hit and heal himself full the next second?
Why can burglars and loremaster can have 2k dots every 2 sec.?
Why can captain in yellow line be godmode?
Pretty easy answers there.....
Yet there a few who dare to miss this opportunity and easily ABUSE their overpowered classes, with an excuse, that they cant help it, turbine made their classes like that........
And so, we see 25-40% minstrels camping grams or atleast +50% tactical classes, who recieved the most wanted love of turbine they could get.
The only thing we dont see are much captains, but on the other hand, EN isnt really famous of the many rolled captain class.
In my opinion, I easily could say one reason, why raid fights or any fights wont work in creeps favour....
Loremasters, champions,guardians, minstrels, runekeepers....
These classes have so many aoe skills at their disposal that creeps never have a chance to outheal nor outdps, these damage and heal skills.
Or am I missing the awesome creep aoe dps?!? Because most reaver aoe dots are nothing but a threat, unless they are used for impale
And that is just 1 easy reason why ettenmoors is so broken at this point.
I could easily make 50 more, but what does it help?
Even 50 more reasons or 50 more posts?
Many will just look at it, notice the points I made, make thier opinion, log in freep and join the pew pew factory again and again....
So all I can hope for is a better day for ettenmoors, a better day as freep and a better day as creep, not just for myself, but for everyone....
Keep it cool!
