  • The nobility titles only really work for human characters. While I'm sure the other four races are getting used to being treated as an after thought, perhaps a system the can apply to all five would be a nice idea?

    I feel like Ajaxx is onto smth here. (mainly the french) jokes aside i find the "of pvp" to be abit uninspired and too selfaware.

    This is probably a minor thing but it's been bugging me for a while - please don't use the gamemode's name in titles (PvP/PvE/WvW). It's just very uninspired and even immersion breaking for an MMO - I'm no roleplayer but still, let's try to conjure up something from the lore if possible. Top 100 of PvP is even worse in that regard.

    For example God of the Mists or something similar for rank 1 instead of God of PvP.

    It does sound weird, and I agree to some extent. But we also commonly have the complaint that people want others to know what the accomplishment was and where it came from. Using of the Mists could work instead. However, in GW2 lore, the Mists also includes WvW and Fractals, so that could be pretty confusing as well.

    "of the Arena" might be a good substitute.

    Isnt wvw more commonly refered as "the mistwars" tho?

    Also, the suggestion to take titles from gw1 seems like a really nice idea.

  • I have a suggestion for the titles, after we've renamed them. Can we instead make them truly seasonal titles? Remove them from our account if we don't get the same rank placement next season or higher, so the titles have more meaning to compete for. I think people will be less likely to match manipulate if they have to do it every time on their main account and alts every season. Or I could be wrong.

  • Whatever you do, try not to make it mimic WvW titles. I like who ever stated "of the Arena", since it clearly feels PvP oriented.

    Of the Mists and Of The Arena are both better titles than Of PvP in my opinion. I personally prefer Of The Arena. Especially because at least half my ranked matches now a days take place in the Eternal Colosseum.

    Of the Mists is a bit too generic, but it's definitely better than "Of PvP." I dunno I've just never been crazy about the Mists theming of GW2's PvP. Princess of PvP might be the best title in the game however.

    What if we introduce a different system of recognition instead or maybe something people actually care about?

    Changing the titles will have a very minimal effect if any at all. We already have badges too, but they don't really make any impact either, so what could we do instead?

    Well why don't we just give PvP players what they ACTUALLY want? Give them unique unlockable customisation options for appearances.

    I'm honestly not sure what's so hard to understand about this, PvP rewards should be centred on appearance and customisation rewards as much as, if not more that reputation systems. Look just consider these:

    • Unlockable togglable auras, (maybe one that shows floating kills vs deaths mid match and wins vs losses outside of a match).
    • Customisable kill streak flavour text and animation (xxx is on a rampage).
    • Unique hair styles unlockable for achieving a certain rank.
    • Legendary dyes unlockable in PvP (chromatic or color changing for example)
    • Unique emotes
    • Unlockable UI skins
    • Personality packs that affect your idle, sitting and run animations along with expressions.
    • Customisable boon effect auras for your game only. (Great for streamers)

    How about a streamer mode even?

    The point is, please stop wasting time on things that people care very little about. K thanks bye

    Can't really do that because then they'd all be win trading and cheating like mad to get all the shinies, and others who /really/ want those items will risk paying $$$ to get it. Over the top prestigious rewards that are given out in a very limited number will drive the little diehards mad.

    GW2 is a casual game. Locking a few titles behind pvp seasons and some monthly ATs is one thing, but giving out legendary dyes, skins, auras that only a handful of people can obtain and is only distributed every few months is not reasonable. PVP is plenty rewarding, easily much more rewarding that wvw during the active pvp season.

    PVP is already the only game mode that limits the number of recipients of specific rewards. All wvw and pve rewards are obtainable by everyone who puts in the effort/gets carried. All pvp rewards are not reasonably obtainable by everyone.

    I love the nobility titles, my only problem with them is the "of PvP" part, as it's a bit immersion breaking. I would prefer it replaced with "of the Mists" or "of the Arena" as others have suggested. That would be amazing.

  • I confess ... I didn't read all of the other messages from this thread. Mea culpa

    At first I thought nobility could be the best one. But then it made no sense to me cause it's no like a king or else was a big part in the war and the mist war is all about warriors (not the class) so ... nobility doesn't really fit in.

    But then any other one was really that great either. So I choose numbers lol

    PS: I read someone talking about "God of The mists " and to be fair that one appeal more to me :D but more war titles (from a fantasic world perspective)

    Like : Recruit -> Soldier -> Mercenary -> Knight -> Hero -> legend ->Embodiment -> God ... something like that :D

  • Just changing the titles are not that interesting. This is particularly the case if the titles from top 25 and upwards does not change at all. Maybe add some other rewards is better.

  • I would still like a theme such as the one I suggested here:

    https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/70151/profession-specific-ranked-titles#latest

    Titles for the profession you played the most of when you achieved your final placement.
    For example; the class you played the most of during the season was a Necromancer and you placed 3rd, this would grant you two titles, "Immortal Phantom" and Immortal Legend.

    Other examples would be; Relentless Shadow, Unyielding Legionnaire, Merciless Illusionist, etc.

    This would give people a greater incentive to play specific professions or to work on titles they want since there would be a much greater variety.

    I think the current titles in itself arent so bad. But the rank you gained is invisble. Just put something like a number next to your badge of the highest rank you finished a season with.

    I like how there was no name calling just a reality check with the title suggestion of having "wintrader" or "match manipulator" as a unremovable title for the "top" players.

    But the commwnt post got deleted lol. Funny how there is a "think like we want you to and just buy the flashy items" mentality going on and you aren't allowed to speak about reality at all.

  • What about - of battle, - of swords, or - of war?
    War would maybe be more wvw sounding but you dont have ranking titles there so:

    God/Goddess of War
    Legendary Demigod/Demigoddess of War
    King/Queen of War
    Prince/Princess of War
    Duke/Duchess of War
    Baron/Baroness of War
    Knight/Dame of War

    Military ranks, by far.

    They preserve the sense of hierarchy the Noble option provides, without sounding nearly as cheesy. They also instantly click with anyone familiar with classic WoW ranks, making it not only potentially more appealing but also recognizable.

    Also, where be my High Warlord? C'mon @Ben Phongluangtham.1065 ! :+1:


    An alternative I haven't seen in the opening post would be to theme entire seasons after something and then base ranks off that. Obviously, they would need an easy-to-understand hierarchy as well, but there's some potential in here. For example, Season of Charr could have ranks varying from the lowest ones to Khan-Ur/Imperator. If lore gets in the way, just add "of the Mists" of something to each.

    It'd also help distinguish seasons from each other and player performance in each season more clearly, as numbers are harder to remember than "Season of the Norn" for example.


    Bottom line, whichever option we go with, I feel it has to have a clear hierarchy if we are going to award Top X,Y,Z rather than a single title for Top X like WoW's been doing with seasonal Gladiators. It would also help if players didn't cringe at the sight of such title (truly not a fan of stuff like God/Goddess etc.)

    Yeah, I stream once in a blue moon.

    I like the nobility theme with "of the Mists". Nobility with "of the Arena" just doesn't fit as well imo. Thematically "God, Demigod, Champion, Legend, Master, Veteran, Soldier of the Arena" fits way better. But they aren't as sweet for RP purposes (and it's well known most PvP players are really into RP).

    @cryorion.9532 said:
    WvW needs those military ranks as titles now! Pretty please :)

    My suggestions for PvP:
    1st: The One Who Beat Them All
    2nd: Not the Best One in PvP
    3rd: Not even the 2nd Best One in PvP
    4th-10th: Experienced in PvP
    11th – 25th: Somehow Experienced in PvP
    26th-100th: Try-hard of PvP
    101st – 250th: Expendable and Forgettable

    Best suggestion. I don't get why this isn't getting more traction. Although I think "Try-hard of PvP" is clearly the best one and should be the top 10 title instead...

    Edit:
    1st: God of the Arena
    2nd: Demigod of the Arena
    3rd: Champion of the Arena
    4th-10th: Legend of the Arena
    11th – 25th: Master of the Arena
    26th-100th: Veteran of the Arena
    101st – 250th: Soldier of the Arena

    I like both the current titles and the nobility titles, apart for "of PvP". That sounds wrong and disconnected from the game.
    "of the Mists" or "of Conquest" or any other proposition here sounds way better.

    Those are more suited for WvW, would be excellent to add them there somehow <3

    One additional note. We'll keep the poll up for about a week before closing it! Also, whatever we decide will not be in place for next season.

    I voted nobility, but i also like the military. For military though, instead of general, replace it with Warlord.

    Hello Ben.
    The idea with new titles is, of course, not bad, but in this situation, which develops and is aggravated with each season, changing the titles will not do anything. The reward for the end of the season should be more substantial than the satisfaction of your own ego.
    In this case, I do not know what kind of awards should be for the end of the season. It might be worth adding gems in addition to titles or special skins available for purchase only after reaching a certain rating.
    Challenger Set (Top 100)
    Elite Set (Top 25)
    Set of God (for the top 1/2/3).
    I don’t know what exactly the Pvp system can help in this case, but certainly not renaming old titles as the only measure

  • For sure the nobility themss! they are cool i hope we see them soon!

    1st: God of the Rift
    2nd: Demigod of the Mists
    3rd: Immortal Legend
    4th – 10th: Balthazar's Champion
    11th – 25th: Heroic Elite
    26th – 100th: Unyielding Veteran
    101st – 250th: Merciless Gladiator

    Not a fan of noble, ranking, or military title ideas. The old feels the best of the suggestions by Ben P, but repeating "Legend" is meh. My change simply turned the titles to reflect the NPC ranks, with exception of the top two to remain god/demigod, and the lowest ('normal') to being Gladiator. I removed Relentless in favor of Balthazar, and Ruthless in favor of Heroic (a nod to Ghostly Hero and Hero title of gw1 pvp) and moved that up a rank, bringing Unyielding down one. And lastly, changed "God of PvP" to "God of the Rift" to reflect that the highest gw1 pvp, Hall of Heroes / Heroes' Ascent, happened in the Rift, the center of the multiverse in GW's setting.

Everything else is easily earnt by just grinding, the unique armours, the unique weapon sets and even the legendary backpack.

    What if we introduce a different system of recognition instead or maybe something people actually care about?

    Changing the titles will have a very minimal effect if any at all. We already have badges too, but they don't really make any impact either, so what could we do instead?

    Well why don't we just give PvP players what they ACTUALLY want? Give them unique unlockable customisation options for appearances.

    I'm honestly not sure what's so hard to understand about this, PvP rewards should be centred on appearance and customisation rewards as much as, if not more that reputation systems. Look just consider these:

    • Unlockable togglable auras, (maybe one that shows floating kills vs deaths mid match and wins vs losses outside of a match).
    • Customisable kill streak flavour text and animation (xxx is on a rampage).
    • Unique hair styles unlockable for achieving a certain rank.
    • Legendary dyes unlockable in PvP (chromatic or color changing for example)
    • Unique emotes
    • Unlockable UI skins
    • Personality packs that affect your idle, sitting and run animations along with expressions.
    • Customisable boon effect auras for your game only. (Great for streamers)

    How about a streamer mode even?

    The point is, please stop wasting time on things that people care very little about. K thanks bye

    Can't really do that because then they'd all be win trading and cheating like mad to get all the shinies, and others who /really/ want those items will risk paying $$$ to get it. Over the top prestigious rewards that are given out in a very limited number will drive the little diehards mad.

    So you're saying that we shouldn't make PvP more interesting or rewarding for anyone because a couple of win traders might enjoy it?

    GW2 is a casual game. Locking a few titles behind pvp seasons and some monthly ATs is one thing, but giving out legendary dyes, skins, auras that only a handful of people can obtain and is only distributed every few months is not reasonable. PVP is plenty rewarding, easily much more rewarding that wvw during the active pvp season.

    PVP is already the only game mode that limits the number of recipients of specific rewards. All wvw and pve rewards are obtainable by everyone who puts in the effort/gets carried. All pvp rewards are not reasonably obtainable by everyone.

    That's not exactly true either, the only skill gated rewards are locked behind AT's and a few PvP titles, of them the only thing that isn't a worthless meme are the gizmos.

    Who cares about titles....lets talk about new game modes!!!!!! Once new games modes happen and im excited for pvp again then we can talk about titles. But as it is now, theres no point in working towards them if im bored af with your game that hasnt had any real development for it since day 1.

    New, fun, different, COMPETITIVE game modes first. Then a title rework. Imo

    Considering it's a fight in the Arena, here is another possibility

    Here is an unpopular opinion, old titles are way better and sound better than any of these proposals... being better than 9X% of the active player base is definitely something in a competitive game mode whereas these players have spent significantly! more time on getting better and master their individual skills. Let’s not argue about these topics like how competitive is this game now, or how matchmaking works or the question of alt accounts & match manipulation, undeserved placings, cheese builds and things like that. All I am saying being in top 250 require skill, knowledge and time, as such let’s acknowledge this with great titles which are really worth fighting for, so I’d like to encourage this community to come up with more ideas. :)

    1st: God of the Rift
    2nd: Demigod of the Mists
    3rd: Immortal Legend
    4th – 10th: Balthazar's Champion
    11th – 25th: Heroic Elite
    26th – 100th: Unyielding Veteran
    101st – 250th: Merciless Gladiator

    Not a fan of noble, ranking, or military title ideas. The old feels the best of the suggestions by Ben P, but repeating "Legend" is meh. My change simply turned the titles to reflect the NPC ranks, with exception of the top two to remain god/demigod, and the lowest ('normal') to being Gladiator. I removed Relentless in favor of Balthazar, and Ruthless in favor of Heroic (a nod to Ghostly Hero and Hero title of gw1 pvp) and moved that up a rank, bringing Unyielding down one. And lastly, changed "God of PvP" to "God of the Rift" to reflect that the highest gw1 pvp, Hall of Heroes / Heroes' Ascent, happened in the Rift, the center of the multiverse in GW's setting.

    I like the rift idea. I would like to keep a word constant in all the titles so you know it's from pvp at a glance. I would go with something like this.

    1st: God of the Rift
    2nd: Demigod of the Rift
    3rd: Legend of the Rift
    4th - 5th: Rift Champion
    11th - 25th: Rift Elite
    26th - 100th: Rift Veteran
    101st - 250th: Rift Gladiator

    Another additional note. If you've earned a title previously, it won't change into a new title. You'll keep the old one.

    I like both the current titles and the nobility titles, apart for "of PvP". That sounds wrong and disconnected from the game.
    "of the Mists" or "of Conquest" or any other proposition here sounds way better.

    Ooo Of Conquest is great. Princess of Conquest... Baron of Conquest..

    Honestly not a fan of any of the suggested changes at all. They do not even give a desire to climb higher on ladder than I already have.

    The PvP titles should be awarded a different font/color as well as changing the player nameplate font/color.

    Also, new cosmetic auras should be given for different titles. Either in the form of an infusion or just an aura that goes with the title.

    Give us something for EU and you have my vote! Maybe something less specific will do it here:

    Wintrader 1 of Season X
    Wintrader 2 of Season X
    Wintrader 3 of Season X
    and so on

    because we have a little bit more variation (or a bigger group of wintrader) in the Top 10/25 than NA.

    What a shame, Nobility titles are winning, even though they basically mostly fit the Human race aristocracy. I guess it is what it is, the majority wins. Boring and yet again excluding the other races thematically like a lot of the game does. I guess I'll stick with my current title title forever. Also ending titles with "of PvP" is super tacky. It'd be better to do "of the Mists", "of Conquest" or even "of the Arena".

    For a Nobility theme, at least have some fun with it, I'd second this one as it fits into structured;

    The military ones are too similar to WvW.

    Maybe a llama nobility theme?

    • 1st: Llama God/Godess
    • 2nd: Llama Demigod/Demigoddess
    • 3rd: Llama King/Queen
    • 4th-10th: Llama Prince/Princess
    • 11th – 25th: Llama Duke/Duchess
    • 26th-100th: Llama Baron/Baroness
    • 101st – 250th: Llama Knight/Dame

    As others points out, a prefix will shorten the titles rather than giving them lengthier suffixes. Thanks for the poll and checking with the Community btw., I love the added dev ⇄ community interaction seen lately across the Forums. Not to say you haven't done so in the past, I'm just noticing what feels like an increase of it. More of that is great.
