    Add gold to PIP chests similar too how pvp chests have gold.
    Add a grandmaster mark chest in a PIP chest similar to how pvp has one.
    Make repeatable diamond chest more rewarding (maybe by adding a small gold reward similar to pvp?)
    Add a new currency (memories of war = equivalent to ascended shards of glory in pvp). Make this new currency primary to buy ascended gear in wvws and leave wvw tickets to be primary currency for legendary gear.

    Pvp league tickets are like skirmish tickets, and memories of battle are like ascended shards of glory (I think it's just simple to not mess with current system, it is fine we don't need more currencies). I wouldn't mind if we got some gold with the chests, it's not like we'd get more gold than the other game modes or people trying to leech it - they would make better gold in the other modes anyway, and a little gold would help keep some people to stay.

    Did I mention stop opening bouncy chests?

    Which bouncy chests are you having a problem with, because mine stay where they are until I click on them at the end of a run.

    No way to tell? I mean.. I have 3 showing. when I leave for LA.. and 3 showing when I land in LA, except I have about 21 items that I have in my overflow bags in the center of my screen.

    Hey folks!

    As you know, the World Restructuring plan we've been discussing is a fairly long term project. While we work on that, we might have a bit of bandwidth here and there to do some minor QoL stuff.

    We'd love your input on what you'd like to see. If we see an idea here we like, we'll get it on the backlog. No guarantee we get to it in a timely manner (or at all, for that matter), but I'd like us to have a nice list of community requests to pull from, should we find the time.

    Quite the can of worms you've opened. I wish you luck sifting through it.
    This is an inventory management related suggestion I made a while back.
    The two things I'd like to take from that thread the most however are:

    • Convert all common, uncommon and rare drops to the equivalent Unidentified Gear. That will go a long way to steamlining inventory. Or if that screws with the PoF economy too much introduce a wvw-equivalent.
    • Siege blueprint bar separate from your inventory (to the side of your inventory, a currency tab or (heaven forbid) a separate wvw-oriented inventory entirely, with the Portable Provisioner baked in (if you have it unlocked).

    Lots of other good suggestions in this thread. Best of luck.

    It was only terrible because it costed gold which made it non-rewarding for players that were investing in.

I have thousands upon thousands sitting there with no use and I know majority of people do as well. And my suggestion for donating to your guild are for this specific use for upgrades and not for buying siege. Not everyone needs siege - especially with how it's thrown at you so much. The cost of siege has dropped so low because of that. I completely disagree with you, auto-upgrades are horrible and only helped relieve the gold cost while introducing issues we didn't need.

    Yeah, mine doesn't do that, it could be your settings maybe? Don't think that is normal though.

    • The wintersday presents only fire from catas if you don't have upgraded cata mastery, which is a big disappointment when you're trying to spread wintersday cheer before stomping out an enemy like a leaf fire.*
    • The siegemaster who spawns if your corner of EBG is overrun is kitten near useless at the moment.

    Get rid of invisible walls. Where we can and cannot glide should be visibly apparent in a competitive format. Replace with actual walls/glass windows.

    Add more achievements and more AP to wvw. Collection achievements for the wvw weapon and armor sets (including legendary armor) would be an easy place to start.

    Bring back crafting stations. Gives us something to do while draining participation. Totally cool if it's in OS.

    If draining participation is still going to be a thing with that update, then please allow us to do it outside of wvw, too. Back when this reward system was first implemented, we used to be able to get the rewards at the end of the ticks even outside of wvw (I remember getting wvw rewards in the middle of pve guild missions. Or if I logged off with participation, next time I'd log on, I'd have whatever chests I would have gotten if I'd stayed on.) It would be nice if this came back to cut back on people draining participation on queued maps.

    Give Halloween reward track an option of a final reward that isn't a 20 slot bag. (Personalized tot bags, regular tot bags, cobs, whatever. Just an option of something else.)

    Make minis stealth when we do. Or make them not visible to the enemy ever.

    Fix the little piece of wall jutting out near SE gate garrison so it stops flickering through all three tiers of wall upgrades.

    Those special festival siege projectiles . . . It'd be nice if those still show up when we have siege masteries.

    When a commander is sitting on top of a wp, give priority clicking to the wp. So tired of when I try to click on a wp, and get the "join squad" drop down instead. This is especially a problem when a group wants to run tagless and leave a dummy tag at spawn so they can still use squad markers. (and maybe while you're at it, make it so you don't have to glitch the game to use squad markers without a tag, too. Would help address this issue, too!)

  • lots of good ideas, so have nothing to add but repeat for emphasis:

    1. Add crafting stations to Obsidian Sanctum. This would make it a great place to idle, have participation decay, and get in some random fights.
    2. Default reward tracks, so we don't have to constantly change it when it finishes.
    3. Unidentified Gear for loot drops. Please. I spend way too much time doing inventory management.
    4. Remove regular siege from loot tables. It doesn't get used, is basically worthless, and takes up space.
    5. Guild bartender on map for buying those wxp potions. Just from sheer forgetfulness.

    Those are what I imagine are the easiest QoL fixes.

    More substantial, but more appreciative:
    1. Keep your place in a queue or map for 120 seconds after logging out. Would be great for dc's or changing characters when there's a queue.
    2. Build templates.

  • During Wintersday siege has special attack animations, e.g. ballistas fire candy canes, trebuchets fire snowballs, catapults...do something. That is, unless you have wvw mastery in that specific siege, which makes them do their normal animations instead of the special Wintersday ones. I literally haven't personally had the Wintersday animations since the first iteration of the holiday event. Will 2018 finally be the year I get them back on my character? Here's hoping.

    Support did not use to be a thing in wvw so every one was very able to tag targets for loot but the game has made that jump to all in support builds but the loot systom has not (more then just the reward tracks).
    How about letting support only builds get tag on players by supporting ppl who are getting tags. Maybe have a player who using a support build tie them self to a chosen player to be there "tag partner" and by doing so and supporting this chosen player they get loot from kills produced from the "tag partner." The player who is supporting and the "tag partner" must be in the same pt and the support must be fresh on the "tag partner" for the support player to get the tags (so the support player must be playing with the chosen player and must be supporting them often during the act of tagging players).

    This is a pure Quality of life for players in wvw i have more ideal but they are balanced aimed so they do not fit here and my ideal has problems and i would love to see more ppl think on these lines of how we can make every one get loot in wvw or have a viable means of gold flow in wvw only with out needing to give up the means of how they want to play and or how there group needs them to play.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

  • Training instances for solo-capping towers and keeps. Tower and keep lords only, not the wall / gate parts.

  • How about balancing the combat so it doesnt suck?

    Should also have a training/combat area with npcs/veteran guards etc. Newer people need to practice this, I see way too many dying to sentry and stuff. I'd like the skills of below average players to get better and test their build dmg and defenses. Learning rotation and reacting is important for them.

    And also somewhere where people can meet the same below average players so they can get some combat experience. Something like... at the edge of WvW? Somehow? I dont know. Just out there on a WvW map which doesnt really affect the matchup, yet is still 3-way casual combat. Using the megaserver tech would be great too, we never see it in WvW. Anet should get right on top of making that, this should have been done years ago!

    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

    Fair point. It'd make more sense to have guild and superior buildable by a means other than collecting quantities of undesirable versions, but changing how that works is probably beyond the scope of a quick QoL change.

    VIsual clutter.... QoL

    Smoother transsitions, and smoother red marks, maybe increase transparency?
    4-5 players is already more then enough to hide the toons in a bright light in the screen due how pve savy the game is.

  • Remove condition damage from wvw and i will go back playing wvw again, if not i wont set foot in that mess whatever its changes.

  • UI suggestions:
    -There is a ! on the WvW traits tab that indicates you have unspent trait points, it is there long after there is nothing left to spend traits on. It would be nice to have this not show up once you are fully traited.
    -Allow ground targeting through UI components. The squad UI takes up a large portion of the screen sometime
    -At the end of the current skirmish, the score bar at the top changes to give a recap. This covers up the only place on your UI that tells you how much supply you have.
    -It would also be awesome if the people in your party within squad were a slightly different color dot, or if there was a box to check "show only party member dots"
    I know you can turn off the grid, but sometimes these WvW squads get out of control big and it's really hard to track your own party.
    -Allow hotkey squad marker/cycle squad marker target selection. An organized squad, broken into parties all have to target the squad target on their own.
    -Allow a reward track (for pvp too) to be set as "Next track." This will let you select a track to be repeatable, or to queue up whatever track you would like to switch to next instead of letting the game select one for you.

    Tactivators:
    -Emergency Waypoint, Invuln Walls, Chilling Fog, Airship should all be only pullable when the structure is actually contested.
    -Free to play accounts should not be allowed to use tactivators

    Outmanned:
    -5 minutes per tick, 5 bonus pips for Outmanned means the buff is basically worth 1 pip a minute. Would it be possible to award partial outmanned pips based on how many minutes you spent on an outmanned map? If I swapped to an Outmanned Blue Borderlands with 3:20 on the clock, could I earn 3 pips for being outmanned? This would allow maps to accurately display if they were outmanned (they do not right now, its only adjusted after the tick, so a large group can swap maps immediately after the tick and go undetected a while) and give players the chance to move maps without being punished by loss of pips. It also does not reward players for map swapping at the last moment to try to sneak an extra 5 pips they didn't deserve.

    Other:
    -Add downstate to keep and tower lords
    -Smooth out the terrain around Stoic Rampart (garrison, red bl). The sandstorm effect makes walking around really annoying when the ground is covered in rocks and twigs that your character will get stuck on.

    For the alliance rework:
    -Allow players to select a single title from all their previous servers, instead of assigning them one based on their current server.

    I was speaking of guild siege that is made from that which is better than using purple or blue siege, and is highly needed /wanted in most wvw guilds. Scribes need the badges in order to make guild siege.

    Agreed to title selection; while I would be fine with the current server as title, the one I really spent the bulk of my WvW time on would be a nice option.

    A general Client Settings change, not UI (or WvW) per se: Alternate Effects Mode. Effects that tend to cover or overlay a target (such as the Guardian's Fire effect) would be replaced with an icon over the target instead. This would help toward all game modes, by preventing 'tells' from being masked by your own class' mechanics... [An intermediate option in the Client for not rendering such effects would be a decent compromise.]

  • Since I now have my legendary armor a very important matter came to my attention! I used to have different skins when changing gear, because, you know, Fashion Wars is a thing. But with the legendary armor thats not longer the case and makes me sad, cause changing skins now takes so much longer.

    This is why it would be absolutely phenomenal, if you would implement costum outfits. A combination of armor skins can be saved and changed quickly with another set of skins. I would certainly love that! What does this have to do with WvW you say? Are you kidding me? Whats the point of killing or be killed if you are not able to show your superior fashion design skills? See, exactly!

    The possibility to chance character while in queue would be nice, too, I guess.

    It would also clear out the rest of defense, there's got to be a better way to handle the afk problem. Repairing is a wvw mastery line, and should therefore count towards wvw participation.

  • Here is my list:
    1. Siege blueprint wallet (currently blueprints take a lot of inventory space and it discourages to play alt characters. Your main character - obviously - has all sorts of siege blueprints a lot, but when you switch to an alt, you often notice that blueprints are missing when you need them)
    2. Map chat limits for consecutive messages are too small and the resulting anti-spam cool down is way too long. Now after just 5 or so messages you cannot write any message to map chat for about 30 minutes. This has many times lead to lost objectives. I am often scouting or roaming, but not part of squad (nor welcome there, because not near the tag or in TS). I see enemy attack our objective or approach it with large numbers, but cannot tell it in chat.
    3. Being at 100 % health and having disconnect or forced logout e.g. because of stuck inside a wall, shouldn't lead to death (currently if you for example are near a broken wall, enemy captures the keep/tower, you are stuck inside a wall. There is no way to get out of the wall except hope somebody kills you or log out. In latter case you are automatically die, even if you are at full health, nobody was attacking you for several minutes.. and worst of all you are sent back to queue)
    3. We have way too many chests and bags to click open. Takes many hours per week to open them all. Remove a lot of useless items from reward tracks and replace with something of use e.g. Tome of Knowledge are abundant and become irrelevant. Give us reward tracks with testimonies of heroics instead. Some crafting materials are not found from any reward tracks, include the missing materials there, instead of forcing us to do fractals, pve or buy from trading post.
    4. Replace Desert borderland with Alpine (most WvWvW players still hate DBL and it is the least played map, 3x Alpine would also be more balanced!)
    5. Ability to queue the next reward track in advance before the current reward track is completed (instead of the game choosing some crappy reward track for you)
    6. Make all armors from reward tracks salvageable. This should include the Desert armor boxes players have already accumulated.
    7. Ability to convert WvWvW related currencies, such as badges of honor and testimonies of heroics, into new useful things besides the existing choices, which are getting limited / stale (once you already obtained all you need).
    8. Show WXP rank with higher precision to squad and party members e.g. instead of showing ranks 1000-1999 as 1k, show them with 1 decimal accuracy e.g. 1.0k to 1.9k, round down
    9. Fixing the lag and frequent disconnects should be TOP priority. This would probably need a big WvWvW skill and trait overhaul e.g. tone down tons of passive effects from traits and foods, tone down those common AoE skills which are known to be server side heavy on calculations e.g. skills affecting potentially tons of targets, corrupting boons, providing boons to many, single skills giving many conditions to multiple opponents at same time, removal of borderline bloodlust and so on. The less calculates on the server side = less lag = more smooth and fair game for all.
    10. Ingame dedicated live representatives of Arenanet / referees to report hackers and other kind of abuse.

    Things I DON'T want to see:
    1. Eternal Battlegrounds or Alpine borderland map replaced by EotM, Desert BL or a new map. The new maps, including EotM, are game-play-wise much inferior and significantly less fun to play. I would rather see the limited WvWvW development resources aimed at quality of life changes and giving us far better skill and profession balance (the lack of profession and skill balance is by far #1 problem, certain professions and builds have been meta for ages, some core professions never been meta)
    2. Too much graphical noise during combat.
    3. More gimmicks, like the shrine mechanisms, jumping pads, annoying stone walls popping from ground, etc. trying to fix otherwise broken map, like Desert borderland. It is like playing on a broken map with bandaid plastered all over.
    4. Annoying pve animals / monsters who attack you for no good reason (e.g. the ones on the Desert borderland, just make that map into a pve map)

    hmm... badges of honor can be converted to badges of tribute and used by scribes to make guild siege at a relatively low cost. For those that use siege this is a good thing.

    I totally agree with hmsgoddess though.. managing camps and yaks seems a lot more "active" than running in and out of a structure and spending silver and gold to upgrade it. Gets people out in the field defending those lumbering beasts. To me it's a better system. :)

    oh nooooo... lol.... what if it opened up an exotic that you didn't have but probably really wanted... BAM it's gone! I'm not sure about you but even with having max chests available in my inv with tons of slots I fill them up during a wvw run. Opening all PLUS the nested chests would plug them up big time ;)

    Lol if thats what you want then you don't have to use it. My inv gets filled multiple times a night and the next day it seems like I always spend about 20 mins opening boxes and boxes within boxes only to get 99.99999% things I don't have the slightest care about.

  • remove the aoe cap/limit. If the enemy doesn't want to move out of my fire field..they should all pay for it, not just a few people.

  • I almost forgot, Resizable Mini Map Why can't I make this as big as I want it to be?

    Hey Ben and Team, thanks for asking us for our preferences out in WvW. Here are a few of mine:

    Items already mentioned in several other posts, but I think they're worth reiterating:

    • Build Templates
    • Squad-Only commander tag. Best idea ever. Especially for those of us who want to run our guild missions (or simply squad up) without pulling pugs from the main tags.
    • Someone mentioned the AoE circles and changing the color of them when in battle. I can never see where my circles are in the sea of red circles.
    • WvW Lobby, complete with crafting stations, merchants, guild bank access and guild tavern/buffs access and mystic toilet.
    • Can we turn siege a bit faster? Maybe make that an added ability to put points in. I hate when you finally get that treb turned and the battle is over. #WvWfail
    • Give us the ability to queue Reward Tracks and/or mark them so that they repeat over and over.
    • Ability to see how many supplies are in an objective when you click on it. Even enemy objectives.
    • Make it so that the claiming guild can mark certain tactics as "only activate when an objective is contested" i.e.: Emergency WP, Invulnerable Walls, Chilling Fog

    My Own Two Cents:

    • Give commanders the ability to name or designate the type of squad. So that when a player hovers over the tag, they see "XXX Guild Missions" or "Pug Squad" or "Scouts Squad" underneath the tags name.
    • WHEN THERE IS A QUEUE, reduce the amount of time before inactive players get booted from WvW. I know some people are going to hate me, but here in T1 we always have map queues, especially in NA prime. Maybe these people get mapped to the WvW Lobby everyone is asking for.
    • Much like the craftman's or equipment bag, can we have a WvW only inventory bag? Have it store siege blueprints, skirmish chest, WvW potions, etc...
    • Remove the icons over pets and minions, and remove their dots on the mini map.
    • Give maxed guilds the ability to claim both a Keep _or _Tower AND a camp. Maybe this could be a War Room upgrade...
    • New Trap idea: Sentry trap. Much like the supply removal trap, but it marks all foes within a certain distance once a player trips it. Could also be a War Room Upgrade.
    • New siege blueprints: let us build our own mortars and cannons. Also a potential War Room Upgrade.
    • Bring back the Oasis event on the red borderland map (or some version of it).
    • Mounts in WvW: Choose 1 type of mount for players to use or 'rent' for a small fee. Only usable in owned territories (like gliding). Mounts do not have special skills or ability and are use for travel only. Once in combat, player is immediately dismounted; cannot mount when in combat.
    • New Map to replace one of the Alpine maps. Maybe a version of one of the HoT maps? However, let's not make it as huge at the red borderland, unless you give us the ability to use mounts.
    • Reward players for camping at camps. Maybe award them WXP for yaks arriving at their designation. (?)

    Increase the available areas for wall repair inner and outer. In a bind, searching for the exact area to stand to repair is a pain.

    4. Remove regular siege from loot tables. It doesn't get used, is basically worthless, and takes up space.

    They are still needed for Superior and Guild Blueprints. Getting them via loot is a good thing to gather them and build Guild sieges.

    What if they removed it from the loot table and cut all sieges npcs prices by 50%?

    Joko lies, Balthazar don't.

  • While it may not be a QoL request, some of us were discussing Pocket Raptors last night - a suggestion was made to bring them back to their former glory, but I have a better idea.

    Pocket Raptor Patrol Pack Tactic!
    Think about it. Chilling Fog is already a great tactic to throw down in a lot of cases because it slows enemy assaults and retreats. Just imagine a tactic that spawned a set number of pocket raptor packs (say 1 pack of 10 for small towers, 3 packs of 10 for keeps, 5 of 10 for garrisons, 10 of 10 for SMC) to patrol the area for a set time and harass any enemy players there! Cripples, tackles, loads more targets to diffuse enemy AoEs on (and, sadly, to let them rally on probably, but it'd be worth it).

    For serious though, when was the last update/change to Tactics? There needs to be some more variety.

    Can we finally get a fix for the silly overlap with the WvW Reward Track button in the corner of the minimap and the first popup chest? That abomination has been in the game for **years **now. We've been waiting for the next major WvW patch to fix this frustrating UI problem to no avail. Would be fantastic to finally get this fixed so players don't accidentally get trolled when they're just trying to click on the dumb popup chest :P

  • A further glance through mentioned the maps. Two more items that may be useful in some respects; one should be easy, one not so much:

    -> Under the new system, server groups will reform regularly. In that case, I would suggest rotating the 'primary' map twice during each 'season' - at the beginning and at mid-point. (This will make more sense with the second item implemented as well.)
    -> Replace one of the current Alpine Borderlands with the original (water-based/Quaggan) one, after cleaning it up for current mechanics. Re-instate the Orb Capture mechanic to enable Bloodlust on this map. That gives WvW three different maps (or at least different mechanics) to rotate with on a regular basis. Between this and EB there should be more variety to choose from on map mechanics, which puts all of the normal WvW set on par with the Edge map. (This is also a turnaround to my original feelings about rotating Edge and EB; I no longer feel that's needed, as Edge has become its own niche with its own fixes needed, and swapping maps would only disrupt all groups involved.)

    On a somewhat related note:
    -> Outnumbered re-work suggestion: Reduce or remove Karma from the maps (or reduce from the normal maps and remove from Edge). The original levels would be re-instated if the Outnumbered icon is in play. You could choose something else to reduce, but Karma is usually the safest as you're practically giving it out like candy during PvE holiday events anyway. This reduction could be balanced out by a slight bump to pip gains, which is more important now for dedicated WvW play.

    hmm... badges of honor can be converted to badges of tribute and used by scribes to make guild siege at a relatively low cost. For those that use siege this is a good thing.

    I totally agree with hmsgoddess though.. managing camps and yaks seems a lot more "active" than running in and out of a structure and spending silver and gold to upgrade it. Gets people out in the field defending those lumbering beasts. To me it's a better system. :)

    @hmsgoddess.3869 said:
    I was speaking of guild siege that is made from that which is better than using purple or blue siege, and is highly needed /wanted in most wvw guilds. Scribes need the badges in order to make guild siege.

    You realize that you still have to manage yaks/camps/supplies on both what I am suggesting and what the older system was? You still needed supply for your upgrades which was actually something you would see complaints about all the time because of supply trolls who would drain or use it on stupid stuff when they needed it. So I am saying; remove the auto upgrade part, give it a cost of badges of honor and still have the time requirements through supply line. I am not saying making it so you can insta upgrade your objectives with badges of honor, just that now there is an investment required from the players and a sink for badges of honor. In the current system, once an objective is captured it will simply proceed to upgrade itself overtime unless it's been captured by another server. I want that gone. I want the player involvement back to being a necessity for a keep to become tier 3 without reintroducing the gold cost and the best alternative is Badges of Honor.

    Saying that you can use your badges of honor to get the scribe stuff ignores how people sit on so much badges of honor (stuff like 20k+!) and the majority of the players who play WvW have not enough ways to spend these.
    I think you're not really looking at the bigger picture when you're telling me about the siege. Majority of guilds I am involved with (Fight oriented guilds) don't give a kitten about siege, they're swimming in it and if they need something like a guild catapult they just buy it from the trading post. Anet has introduced more Badges of Honor sink for a while but nothing that has been substantial enough. Seriously, the majority of the WvW players I know sit at the very least on 10k badges because there isn't anything worth them spending it on. You could argue they could simply raise the prices of items but that would be a terrible rebalancing of cost/value of items that would affect a lot of people negatively meanwhile my solution doesn't. I welcome counter-arguments to my suggestion and I hope someone can find a flaw to my idea that would make me reconsider but it seems you guys aren't actually reading what I'm saying...

    Hey folks!

    As you know, the World Restructuring plan we've been discussing is a fairly long term project. While we work on that, we might have a bit of bandwidth here and there to do some minor QoL stuff.

    We'd love your input on what you'd like to see. If we see an idea here we like, we'll get it on the backlog. No guarantee we get to it in a timely manner (or at all, for that matter), but I'd like us to have a nice list of community requests to pull from, should we find the time.

    1. Something done for stealth in WvW. Being abused in WvW since there's lack of ways to counter the mechanic. Skills that are implemented currently is not helping, not to mention you need to target them in order to work?( :sweat: they are stealthed....).

    2. Invisible walls obstructing projectiles in camps bug.

    3. Some proper dmg scaling? With the new patch there are some classes that can deal 13-15k dmg in 1-2sec with just a button. Eg. Mesmers pistol duelist can deal 10k followed with shatters while stealthed. Mirage have constant reflects and instant burst skill. Deadeye overly buffed "double tap/ three round burst" spam without cd that total up to 9-12k dmg each click(snipe deals 17k but its no longer needed). Revenant spammable hammer skill #2. I'll stop here before I bores everyone. It's just that some burst had no counterplay and in WvW, to add theres no restrain to players which allow players to run to reset the cd.
