As you may know, we have been considering making new PvP leaderboard titles for some time. At this point, we would like to involve the community in that decision by letting you vote on a few proposals! We came up with three different title schemes that you can see below. Additionally, I’ve listed for each title scheme some pros and cons from our point of view. You are also free to suggest new schemes in this discussion.
Please note that:
1) These proposals aren’t a guarantee. Things can still change, especially if someone suggests a scheme that we like significantly more.
2) Any additional title suggestions should have a unifying theme.
3) The vote results will be one of the consideration we take into account when deciding what new title scheme we will use.
Thank you for your help!
Old - Current Titles
Pros – No work required since it’s already in.
Cons – After Legendary Demigod, each title sounds less differentiated. They don’t illustrate how well you placed, as they are pretty close in meaning. Difficult to say how Ruthless, Relentless, and Merciless Legend compare.
1st: God of PvP
2nd: Legendary Demigod
3rd: Immortal Legend
4th-10th: Unyielding Legend
11th – 25th: Relentless Legend
26th-100th: Ruthless Legend
101st – 250th: Merciless Legend
New – Nobility Theme
Pros – Very easily recognizable ranking between the various titles. Most PvP players will be instantly familiar with this terminology. Adding PvP makes it clear that it’s a reward earned in PvP.
Cons – Not very unique.
1st: God/Godess of PvP
2nd: Legendary Demigod/Demigoddess of PvP
3rd: King/Queen of PvP
4th-10th: Prince/Princess of PvP
11th – 25th: Duke/Duchess of PvP
26th-100th: Baron/Baroness of PvP
101st – 250th: Knight/Dame of PvP
New – Number theme
Pros – Ranking is very straightforward.
Cons – Not exciting.
1st: God of PvP
2nd: Legendary Demigod of PvP
3rd: Immortal Legend of PvP
4th-10th: Top 10 of PvP
11th – 25th: Top 25 of PvP
26th-100th: Top 100 of PvP
101st – 250th: Top 250 of PvP
New – Military Theme
Pros – Clear ranking.
Cons – Military ranks may be more suitable to WvW than PvP.
2nd: Lieutenant General
11th – 25th: Captain
26th-100th: First Lieutenant
101st – 250th: Second Lieutenant
