Xenesis.6389 Posted August 31, 2022 Share Posted August 31, 2022 (edited) I'm going to start a thread for the purpose of having one place for Anet to read about Quality of Life or big dreamy game mode changing suggestions to improve wvw. If you've had an idea that was maybe lost in the shuffle or never got enough attention because of the sarcastic madness of the wvw forums, please feel free to add it, and make sure to title the post on what it is about for a quick tldr, easier for devs to skim through. Let's try to keep this focused, we don't need posts about stuff like scrapping wvw for a battle royale or battleground mode, those are entirely separate modes from wvw, this is strictly about improving wvw. ALSO Please do not post about Rewards in this thread, I will be making a separate one for that issue, as I know that is a very popular subject with many different ideas to improve it, it deserves it's own thread. And no class balance suggestions please, as that also gets discussed to death in other threads around the forums. 1. Add Walls To Desert Borderland Desert Borderland New Walls Image shows adding walls to Stoic Rampart, and the two north towers. The purpose of these changes is so the coverage resembles those of the alpine borderlands. Make the two watergate walls indestructible so only the gate is passable. Add two walls to the sides of Stoic in order to force players to go through the north side in order to hit the north sides like they do for garrison on alpine, there is the option to make these walls destructible, but it's better to make them impassable as with garrison. Adding indestructible walls to north towers in ensure their area is used for proper detection/protection of the north, and also no easy wall breaks out of watchtower range. Alpines has this on nwt but you need to go all the way around to the north, but this isn't possible with desert layout, so for out of range breaks trebs would be required. 2. Updated WvW Scoring Menu Updated WvW Menu Image shows a more unified layout of information. Server names | Current War score | Victory points | Listed in order from Green, Blue, then Red. Tooltips over Warscore and Victory points names should describe what those points mean. 3. Update EOTM When world restructuring happens, there's a good chance this may get used more often again, if things go according to plan to keep wvw maps as full as possible. In any case EOTM should be updated to be more newbie/pve friendly as a starter/introduction zone to WvW. Reward track progress should be permanently increased by 100%. It takes anywhere between 4-8 hours to complete a track, it should be lowered to max 4 hours in EOTM, which is about the same time for a match in there as well. We've had complaints over the years over the gift of battle, and this may be a way to get pve players into a less rougher introduction for wvw, we get rid of the half afkers just in wvw for the gift, and better chance they may even come to like wvw game play and play on the real stage. Also would think about improving the end reward for winning EOTM, maybe adding victory points to the worlds involved on a 2/1/1 basis. If green wins all the worlds from green get 2 points added to their score. 4. Guild Names on Claims. Add the abbreviated guild names under the guild icons on the flags of claimed objectives, just a little something extra for those guilds to show off. 5. Add Some More Content Add all dailies to the list every day, so players get to pick and choose which to do, a couple extra potions isn't going to hurt, pve has a ton of dailies in comparison. Add weekly achievements for matches as they had for the tournaments. WvW Season 1 Achievements WvW Season 2 Achievements Obviously the numbers would need to be toned down for a weeks worth rather than 4-6 weeks worth. But some extra goals to achieve especially when things are quiet in wvw isn't a bad thing to have and get some extra reward. 6. Adding Boons to Outnumbered We've been over the value of stats in outnumbered a number of times, whether it would be worth adding or not to help those who are unable to compete, as wvw is completely a numbers game these days. What about adding some boons? doesn't seem to matter to anyone the amount of them that are flying around these days, so what about a one time hit of boons when outnumbered pops? So when someone gets outnumbered(which lasts for 5mins until the next tick), what if the player gets an immediate hit of 30sec(the boon duration cap) of Swiftness, Protection, Fury, Vigor. This is only applied when outnumbered is first applied. 7. Permanently Autohide Mini Pets in WvW Not much else to say here, this is to keep the trolls and newbies under control with useless pets that don't stealth. 8. Remove Supply from SMC SMC shouldn't become a siege fortress, and if the players really want to do so they should bring their own supply from their own sides. 9. Random Territory Events Random storm pass through random territories and add random effect of random durations 2-5mins, every 15mins. Agony effect. Or Torment effect, 1 stack applied every 5sec. Or Null effect, no boons, no conditions can exist in the territory. Or 25% Speed boost. Or 100% Wxp Or 2x PPK Or 2x PPT Or 50% Magic find Or 100% extra participation earned Or it rains with fog effect Or Random mistlock instability. 10. Upgrade Mercenary Camps Captured every 10 mins, every 3mins they spawn a group of 10 veteran npcs to attack a random enemy objective on the map, they move across the map with superspeed, love from anet. If no enemy objectives exist they turn and attack a random ally objective instead. They count toward the kill vet daily! 11. Show Orange Swords From All Maps On All Maps Just a little more information on where "content" is at. 12. Dogmander Tags You know it's time Anet, do it. 13. Add Guild Skins Add custom skins for guild siege, at the very least the very often used guild catapult, sell it on the store if you must, let guilds add a little pizazz and signature to their captures. Discuss, add your ideas, let's keep it focused. Thank you. Edited September 1, 2022 by Xenesis.6389 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
