[SUGGESTION] EotM

Deni.7345Deni.7345 Member

So this weekend we saw eotm liven up a bit because of the double xp weekend which was nice for the few of us who still enjoy the map. My suggestion is to ban elite specs in eotm(keep only the core classes) which would imo peak the interest of some players especially the old ones who remember the fights back in the day. Might not have a huge impact but it's worth a shot to populate eotm and bring back the nostalgia.

  • Maybe not but I've heard a lot of ppl complain about the current wvw meta, some ppl would even be happy to get all of wvw to core classes so a little break in eotm from bubbles and corruptions would benefit everyone and would be a good experiment to see would ppl actually enjoy that.

    Perhaps. I am well aware of the spam power creep each expansion introduced over the years. I just don't think the audience is going to come back to...EOTM. A map maybe more dislike(d?) than DBL. Atleast it'd be used for testing, but I just think the nostalgia is going to conflict with the uhh...negative nostalgia for EOTM.

    Don't you think that people left EotM because there are better rewards in ordinary WvW and PvE?

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    Just mainline the map with restructuring, so much wasted potential.

    I hate to break it to people but class balance was bad before elite specs. Thieves were still spamming stealth and high burst builds, necros were still blowing people up, guards and wars were still running tanky and doing high damage. You also cannot stop people from using post HoT stat combos.

    As much as I miss the old hammer train days that we had pre Hot/stability nerf, those days are long gone. Adapt and learn, metas should be fresh and change.

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    Eotm was a lobby, to wait when you were queued for the actual WvW maps. Rewards were better, ranks faster gained, karma as well, so that eotm actually took players from wvw.
    Now that wvw has some kind of rewards, unique ones as well, eotm has the place it was meant for.
    In my server, at least, the veterans have never stepped foot in eotm. OP's idea might be better off being utilized in OS, in my opinion...

    Eotm was a karma farm and levelling spot.

    With decent rewards in WvW and a lack of players, it's lost its appeal.

    Core only map won't change that, people play for rewards.

    What killed EotM was the fact that it alone was excluded from the pip system.

    Ummm.. No. when they removed XP from it. That and linking. Pips were very much late to the party for EOTM.

    Thank You for the {MEME}

    Tbh I wouldn't mind if they fixed a few things with the map, and had some kind of event with EotM being an active WvW map instead of EBG. I certainly do NOT want it to go back to what it was, as that detracted far too much from WvW.

    It would be nice if it was a map that was an actual training ground to help teach and ease new players into wvw activities. But not really anything you can do for carrots to get players in there. They took out exp, but you can get the tomes if you level wxp, but you can't give out wxp like candy in there otherwise it's k-train ville again with people earning ranks faster than regular wvw, can't increase other rewards too much or give pips otherwise players will also go there for easy loot.

    Maybe they can just do a permanent reward track bonus in there so that the gift complaining people can go there instead, rest of the tracks are basically pve stuff anyways, and the wvw stuff are mostly locked to ranks. They could also add in the pips there, just set it to like 1 and no extra for everyone.

    Unfortunately too many bored holes would go in there gank newbie players I'm sure.

    "Is there pvp stuff for this?" "Absolutely, eh we actually have a new armor set coming soon."
    "From the back of the room!, the one pvp fan! we got him! WoAH!"
