coures.1065 Posted March 18 Share Posted March 18 I've been a WvW scout/defender for 4 years and the recent updates have been terrible. I get that WvW is clearly in dire need of something new to attract more people, but they've missed the mark so badly that I'm planning on quitting. For the yak supply increase and objective supply decrease, from my speculation, they did this so that certain servers can't monopolize objectives for too long. It'd be easier for attackers to invade, but what about the people who actually have fun defending then? We have less supply to work with and distribute people to flips camps if need be instead of focusing on the invasion. Seems like a con for us. I thought the reward system change would've fixed that. For a brief moment, I thought 'Hey! We're finally getting more out of defending our Borderlands which not many players go to. Building siege I paid with my low WvW earned gold and purchasing tricks and traps for stopping enemy siege is finally paying off. More people are repairing walls and gates that nobody ever cared about before instead of leaving it all to me!' That is until several folks complained about how SMC 'oh woe is me' is always out of supplies because players abused it. And for some strange miraculous reason, Anet listened and then completely messed it up by not even getting a reward. Oh, how I wish they'd listen to me when I report thieves being able to teleport in a tower without using siege. Would've been the light of my life, but nooo they listened to SMC huggers instead. Now despite how hard I participate in events I don't get rewards. Retaking objectives doesn't even give gold. I build up the siege, I kill the lord with people I called for and what do I get? Bronze. A tower has an enemy trebbing Bay. I build counter siege and destroy the treb. I fix two walls that have massive HP by myself. What do I get? Nothing. Enemy zerg comes in on Garrison. I call for help. I disable the siege and stall. I patch the walls so nobody else gets in. I destroy the siege. Our people wipe the enemy. What do I get? NOTHING. Why? Because I have to kill a person to be considered as participating? How unfair is this? I helped too! I don't understand how I'm worthless after doing all of these things. It feels as if it's better to just let the enemy flip our objective. That way I would at least get bronze for the retake event, right? Defending is dead. Whoever's a defender out there, just PPT and get your pity bronze. 35 8 2 5 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
