Restore Eotm karma train, free EBG.


Recommended Posts

Honestly it is very tiring to have one of the best designed maps for combat called EBG constantly taken by pve players who hog the map slots for karma, dailies and other rewards. We all know they dont contribute nothing and really in general dont care about helping out anyone. Not to mention its frustrating to have them hog all the map slots while people who are willing to be committed want to get on the map and get that fighting orientated content.

Cant we just restore back to Eotm to how it was and also add the ability to make sure pve people can get all their rewards that they want to leech from EBG? Eotm is fairly dead most of the times (unless some people are doing GvG) so it should be perfect to will the needs of players who hog EBG map slots for selfish reasons.
And no, if you implant Eotm to fill the needs of pve people, then the rewards they want to get are no way in comparison gona be more profitable compared to what you can achieve from pve lands.

A small reminder why the EOTM ktrains died,a single group had turned it into a gold business by running all 3 sides of the map.

This came topped up with a serving of verbal abuse ,griefing and death threats to people who tried to compete in the map.

By the time anet took care of the problem,all the legit players were gone from it and many left the game as well.

Define "fighting oriented content". If you want organized fights between squads where only killing counts, then EBG is the worst map because it has a big fat PVE objective in the middle.

Unfortunately EotM wouldn't function anymore as long as the new GvG arena is there. It would mean guilds waiting at start or end of GvGs would just see orange swords and go get some free bags. It would be completely one sided fights and EotM wouldn't be able to form any consistant groups

I do think bringing EotM back is a great idea since it was quite reliable there was a commander there for new players. But it just won't work if GvG guilds are in same instance.

Honestly it was kinda stupid to remove any possiblity of the original EotM map being used by adding small part for guilds on the map instead of creating separate instance

They can partition off the arena as it's own area like they did Obsidian Sanctum.

That would be ideal.  


But considering it’s also what the group has been asking for, over the past 8 years at least, I don’t think Anet would do that.

Lel EBG a good map for PvP! All ebg ever is anymore is noob blobs following a commander who uses open field siege, "roamers" that run in packs of 15 harassing the blobs, and pve noobs that lead all out assaults on the dreaded ogre village near the harpy queen.

 

But ya they should let eotm be a thing again, never went much but it was a neat map idea. Not really much stuff in gw2 that actually looks "mist like"

Basically, its fighting for PvE content.

“Get your filthy hands off my keep lord!”

“Waaah, I will kill your Dolyak!”

I admit, I hit EoTM a prior reset after getting a video lockup in GW2 and had queues on all maps. Ran around and hunted other players and its still an awesome map. Loved the diversity and differences in terrains the varying requirements. Only reinforced would like to see mounts and gliding added to it and brought over as a fifth map for standard WvW.
