Thread: How's the Pvp

  1. #1

    How's the Pvp

    Want to transfer to a server with good players but not sure if Elendilmir is dead or not? How's the pvp?

  2. #2
    There's some actions at US prime time but other than that it's pretty much dead. Not like what it used to be when it was 24/7.

    If you want actions brandywine is the answer.

    I'd wait till u13 hits, since it is supposed to be a game breaker.... E has some fun to offer, more small grouping that on say BW I've encountered, a few competent creeps as well, good luck finding a server with good freeps these days though :/

    Yes, there's good action. We get raid fights basically every day, but also lots of time for solo and small group play so you don't have to join the huge raid to avoid getting rolled.

    If an expansion couldn't bring many people back, an update won't.

    KillGore, if they make snap decision to introduce in next update their brainstorm idea of catapults, do you think that could make a difference? :P

    Who said anything about bringing people back?

    The last update has brought a number of new players to the moors, mostly freeps who no longer find the pve side rewarding...(go figure), so the question is how will many of these new pvpers respond to what they will consider a nerf, that is assuming Turbine has any clue which way to turn the screwdriver.


    Right now they are fighting creeps who's skill rotation looks something like:

    whitebar-whitebar-skill-whitebar-whitebar-skill-skill-whitebar-whitebar-whitebar-skill-whitebar-skill-whitebar-whitebar-whitebar-whitebar

    assuming this isn't some evil genius stealth attempt by Turbine to unlag the servers of massive skill lag, (by not actually letting players play) then balance to the force will be a taste of cruel reality to some of these newer folks.

    To me they could/should take advantage of the pvp part of the game. I think to start enhancing it would take far fewer resources money/time-wise to show benefits. This would give them the time they need to fix/change things on the pve/questing side of the game that has cause me to leave my freep chars at lvl 75.

    during usa primetime you have a shot at finding some action- sometimes its so busy the hamsters all have heart attacks...

    If I go out into the moors at other times though it seems to induce comas more often than not. Doesn't seem to matter if I am on creep or freep.

    Haven't played creepside much this month- but I do have two creeps I enjoy playing from time to time, and a third kind of on standby.
    Try to go to whichever side has less numbers usually, lately we haven't had as many in kin freepside so I've been freeping mostly.

    Favorite toon at the moment is my hunter though. The kidlet she's named for won't be hobbit sized much longer


    And I lie too poorly to convince anyone of anything should I attempt it. That's why I didn't get into law or politics.

    Did U13 change anything?

    Edit: It seems they added 5 extra extra 1shotters to Gramsfoot, poor Gando will die almost automatically now

    I think it's still too soon to tell, but there are definitely a few more faces on either side during off-peak hours; although of course, not everyone is necessarily looking for fights. But I think initial interest is the normal response to any update which has any effect on the Moors. During Asian prime-time, I have gotten a few nice little group fights on creep-side, with and against some people who are new to the Moors. There seems to be more a little more small grouping going on during this time on freep-side, often kin grouplets. Definitely interest in defilers has increased, which is nice to see! It will be some time before we can judge whether Turbine can make new interest stick, though.

    have you seen the entwood though?
    There may come a time for valor without renown, for those without swords may surely still die upon them.

    Was nice to get a little taste of decent action finally last night. When creeps were outnumbered we died badly (yes I was on TS crying "but i'm op! how are they killing me?"). After blaming the warleaders for everything and regrouping, the even numbered fights were fun, decent kills on both sides. We had to disband once we started catching each freep group alone -- even tho you guys were fighting to the death & some impressive survival, it's clear creeps are balanced enough to the point where we will easily win with those 8v5 numbers. But the 10v10 fights were fun, nice to shake off some rust, look forward to the coming battles.

    If you're a raid babe that relies on the minimal crux of strength in numbers, then it's pretty good for no more than 4 hours/day at best.

    If you're not a fan of only using an average of 5 skills on whatever class you play, then PvP has probably been dead for a long time on 90% of servers.

    Interesting concept of 'balance'.
