Incentive for WvW Participation

Zephyr.8015Zephyr.8015 Member ✭✭

So an element from the WvW scene I feel we are missing is an incentive to do well/participate for the server. My idea is that for 1st place for ALL Tiers of the server match ups is to give the winner for each week an extra week's worth of WvW Scrim tickets. This would give players a reason to do better, to want to compete and try to get to 1st place of their tier and get rewarded for doing such. I know Anet has no intention of bringing back seasons but there needs to be a reason to compete. You could even give 2nd a 3rd place a prize as well, 2nd gets half a week's worth, and 3rd gets quarter of a week of scrim tickets. This way you help the community who is trying to work on gears etc and promotes a feeling of competition.

    1 week extra isnt that way to much...?

    Btw those are the same has buff tickets for every one by 50% and 100% for winner of the match..? that has nothign to do with competition.

    I vote no. This just rewards overstacked servers and PPTing. Also, why give tickets for second and third? That does nothing to promote competition because you'll get more tickets no matter what you do. This seems like another "I just want more easy tickets" thread to me.

    No, rewarding server placement is always a bad idea. Rewarding individual participation should be the focus. It is not fair for someone to jump into wvw when their server has already opened up a large lead in a skirmish/matchup and be able to get more rewards then someone on the other server that is playing harder then them.

    Sure, if every server had equal population and coverage we could do this.
    But that isn't the case.
    We all know this for 5 years now.
    Servers cannot out perform servers that have more population and coverage, period.
    Do we also need another reason to stack BG when they eventually open again?

    Keep rewards more to a personal basis.

    Favors stacked servers (and future stacking); no way this idea should ever be implemented

    Why not just make matches 2 weeks long that way everyone gets 2 weeks worth of skirmish tickets and no one is bored out of their mind or sure theyre going to win by day 3.

    This would only support more bandwagon mentality, unfortunately.

    The problem with rewards like this, is that the individual is at the mercy of the masses.

    So basicly, OP want to turn the loot gains in WvW into the same RNG as the MMR in sPvP. Except that instead of being able to influence the end result of a match as 20% of the team, your influence is like... 0.01% or something... to literally double the tickets.

    Makes sense.

    If they gave me gems I might play again. But then again, nope.

    OP's idea in some form might work for other players though. Pretty sad when you have to pay players to play.

    The incentive to play wvw is to get boxes, open up these boxes and get more boxes inside the opened boxes. When you open up the box that was inside the other box, you get a marvelous green no one cares about.



  • Kovu.7560Kovu.7560 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Yo dawg, I heard you like boxes.
    Anywho, I'd be okay with a few extra tickets in the bonus rank up chests you'd get for winning a matchup, but on the whole I'm against a system that inherently benefits Blackgate and screws over NSP.
