EOTM needs love

I recently came back to the game after a long absence. Tonight every WvW map had a queue of ~20 so I decided to check out EOTM.
And it was dead. I mean totally, completely, not a single active friendly player on the map dead.
What is the purpose of having EOTM available if it never gets used, even during peak times when there is a 30 minute queue for the other WvW maps?
Devs should improve EOTM rewards so that it's active again like it used to be.

    Eotm's purpose was to have a temporary area to play it if all 4 maps were already full, which happened a lot back in the day when Eotm was first introduced. Unfortunately the population has gone down over the years and the only time you may even need eotm is on reset night, usually queues last maybe 2 hours and then it dies off for the week, but even then people would rather just sit semi afk waiting on their queue.

    Also, thought this was kinda funny, at reset, in tier 1.

    Another derailing post. ^^

    It's because of wvw reset. It's pretty much the only day when 4 map queues are a thing.

    No people stopped playing there as exp gain got stopped there, aswell no pip gain there so no rewards> no players.

    Don't argue with idiots, they drag you down to their level and own you with experience.

    Given anet's desire to use existing content for their 'bonus event' initiative I think eotm actually is ripe for an event one of these weeks. But they already did no downstate for wvw so idk how long it would be before they returned to wvw for another weekly event . . .

    Getting EOTM removed from game and salavage the map for something else would be an improvement....

    EOTM can have some interesting mechanics but the way Anet dev's achieved those mechanics feel cheap coded, like the scorpion transmogs....

    rewards would be a simple way to get ppl interested, especially players that don't usually wvw. I think a good improvement would be to have uncontestable waypoints in all keeps and towers. I don't like how long it takes to find fights, especially when the other zerg is trying to avoid you, which is easy in this map. scoring doesn't matter here, the only reason for it to exist is for fights, so anything that promotes that should at least get a tryout. maybe instead of waypoints, jump pads that shoot you really far could get a test. idk something.

    The horror...…….the horror...…….the horror...…….

    Heh I know that, I was pointing out what eotm's actual purpose was, not what everyone used it for.

    And no it's shouldn't be made into a reward merry go round again.
    You want wvw rewards, earn it in actual wvw maps.

  • Either it's just a bug, or they sneaked some updates in we don't know about, but you gain Pips in EOTM.
    Last week i was bored and decided to take a break from being blobbed 24/7 so i went a bit roaming there and noticed:
    1. you gain pips
    2. if you flip a Flag your Participation increases.
    3. you can gain Outnumbered Pips.

    If they take the new mount, the Wyvern and make it usable in EotM it might bring some life back to it....

    If EotM was revised do only give out rewards if played like the other WvW maps, how many of the EotM supporters would be behind that? If so, why not just play on the other WvW maps? If not, then essentially you want a PvE map to earn WvW rewards.
