To the WvW Community,

This is the Game Mode that I envision would be possible.

Would you help & support to keep this thread visible & actively updated?

Please give credit & reward to author if this idea is ever used.

Invitation to assist in development & to alpha/beta test would be a warm welcome to the author.

Yours truly,Diku

Credibility requires critical insight & time.


TLDR - How to Understand the structure of this posted thread & How to Contribute.

The 1st post is actually a Table of Contents that provide links to "Permanent Chapters".

Permanent Chapter posts are used to document every aspect of the game mode.

These Permanent Chapters are Updated based on this game mode's community feedbacck.


To fix WvW we need to start with Chapter 1 where we Reboot WvW.

Then, we need to work on doing each Chapter in numerical order until we can Host Tournaments found in Chapter 6.

The Road Map to fixing WvW Starts with Chapter 1 & will evolve into a new game mode called WvG in Chapter 7.

All other posts in this thread is a discussion to help update the Permanent Chapters found in the Table of Contents.


The basic concept is to save WvW by evolving it into WvG.

WvG is a game mode where Players are engaged to repeatedly return to GW2 to play in Healthy & Competitive Match-Ups they pick themselves.

If you need to be sold on the idea to save WvW - See Chapter 6 - WvG Tournaments.

CHAPTER 1


REBOOT WvW - Remove World Linking & Implement Changes to WvW

Temporary Solution Until New Game Mode Upgrade Is Ready To Open

2021.02.26 - This Post Last Updated


WvG - Table of Contentshttps://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/89449/wvg-world-vs-globes/p1


Prepare To Reboot by Implementing the following Changes to WvW

Intention is to revert WvW back to the original ecosystem

When you damage an ecosystem...sometimes the right thing to do is to revert it back to what it was before...and hope nature takes hold & finds its course again

We need to give the WvW game mode a chance to go back to its roots & find the strength to recover...from its real source of power that allowed it to survive all these years without attention...Stable Long-Term Communities


"Ideas are like cream, the good ones rise to the top."

  1. Remove World Linking & Put back the Old WvW ecosystem of Home Servers
  2. Remove any penalty to players that choose to Transfer to a New Home Server
  3. Monitor Server Population - Servers are Opened & Closed based on Server's Capacity
  4. Server Population Count based on a player's active WvW hours - FULL - VERY HIGH - HIGH - MEDIUM
  5. Closely Monitor & Adjust, Tweak, or Replace World Server Ranking Mechanics - See [ Chapters on Design ]
  6. Calculate an Average Server Rank based on a moving 12 month period on the 1st of every Month
  7. Posted Average Server Rank impacts Server Transfer based on the below
  8. Servers with an Average Rank (3 & below) - CLOSED TO TRANSFER - (Range Adjustable)
  9. Servers with an Average Rank (6 & below) - IF NOT FULL & OPEN - Allow Transfer for - 6480 gems & X World Ability Points
  10. Servers with an Average Rank (9 & below) - IF NOT FULL & OPEN - Allow Transfer for - 1800 gems & X World Ability Points
  11. Servers with an Average Rank (12 & below) - IF NOT FULL & OPEN - Allow Transfer for - 500 gems & X World Ability Points
  12. Servers with an Average Rank (15 & below) - IF NOT FULL & OPEN - Allow Transfer for - 250 gems & X World Ability Points
  13. Servers with an Average Rank (18 & below) - IF NOT FULL & OPEN - Allow Transfer for - 125 gems & X World Ability Points
  14. Servers with an Average Rank (Above 18) - IF NOT FULL & OPEN - Allow Transfer for - Free
  15. Remove Supply when Player Capture Objectives on an Enemy BL, or EBG Enemy Territory
  16. Keep Supply when Player Capture Objectives on their Home BL, or EBG Home Territory
  17. A Server's Final War Score is used to award a weekly WvW Server Rank
  18. Any Final War Score that is tied shall be awarded to the "Incumbent" Ranked Server
  19. Weekly WvW Match-Ups are based on a Server's WvW Rank with the Top 3 being matched together & progressing in sets of 3 until all servers are matched-up
  20. All other WvW mechanics remain in place without any major changes - i.e. - Daily, Skirmish, etc.

Make it easy to create, regroup, and rebuild a Long Term Community using the Bottom Server Ranks

Make it hard, impossible, & expensive for players to transfer into the Long Term Communities found in the Top Server Ranks

WvW should be designed to be an END GAME Content to PvE

WvW game mode needs be designed to naturally encourage Long Term Communities to be born, grow, die, and then be re-born again in a perpetual life cycle that creates player-based content


Implement - CHAPTER 5 - EOTM LOBBY - Mist Raiding, WvW Recruitment & Craft-Merchant Vendorshttps://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/comment/1064951/#Comment_1064951

ALL Players MUST enter WvW through EOTM before traveling anywhere else


Allow WvW to revert back to a Server based ecosystem & let it stabilize before implementing WvG to Reboot the game mode

CHAPTER 2


REDESIGN WvW - Re-Purpose Server Guesting for WvG & encourage Healthy Competition

2021.01.31 - This Post Last Updated


WvG - Table of Contentshttps://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/89449/wvg-world-vs-globes/p1


Player Driven, but Anet Controlled Match-Ups help to encourage Healthy Competition5 Simple Steps To Redesigning WvW


  1. Remove the current match-up system, but keep a system for Server Score & Rank - See [ Chapters on Design ]
  2. Assign each Server a "Globe" to Defend - (Single unit of maps owned by the same server - Number of maps adjustable between 1 - 4)
  3. Let players pick any (2) "Globes" [ 1st choice = Green ] & [ 2nd choice = Blue ] to weekly raid using a Re-Purposed
  4. During the Match-Up players are shown the top (3) highest scoring enemies raiding their Home Server's Globe in a random order
  5. Players Earn Rewards ONLY when they raid "Globes" that are "Ranked Higher or Equal to" their Home Server

Take Steps to Redesign WvW Into WvG


  1. Put current WvW game mode into Maintenance - No Changes Allowed
  2. Re-Focus Development Team's Direction - See [ New Game Mode & Vision ]
  3. Create a Parallel WvG game mode
  4. Develop WvG to replace WvW in the steps outlined below
  5. Long-term goal is to preserve ALL Server Team Identities & Communities
  6. Initially Create 5 Servers for this New WvG game mode to Test & Develop "Proof of Concept"
  7. Remove ALL Design Mechanics from the Base maps that WvW uses & Re-Purpose them for WvG
  8. Next, Layer back Design Mechanics as needed for these New WvG maps - See [ WvG Overview ]
  9. Later Create More WvG Servers to replace ALL existing servers after Confirming "Proof of Concept"
  10. New WvG game mode is "slowly" beta tested during "weekend events" where WvW is turned off
  11. New WvG game mode eventually swapped in to replace Old WvW
  12. Old WvW is then allowed to gracefully fade away

Being Ranked #1 needs to be earned & will come at a cost with this New Match-Up Design

CHAPTER 3


NEW GAME MODE & VISION - Establish a better Road Map & Vision with World vs Globes

2021.01.31 - This Post Last Updated


WvG - Table of Contentshttps://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/89449/wvg-world-vs-globes/p1


A New Game mode that builds upon the Old Foundations of WvW To Transform it into WvG

WvG needs to be all about that Friday Reset where everybody rushes home to grab their favorite drink & snack…to blow off a week's worth of steam & to be someplace where everybody knows your name.


ROAD MAP - Where Do We Want To Take WvG?

WvG needs to first tackle the Top 3 Problems that WvW could never solve


  1. WvG needs to embrace that Server stacking is a natural part of this game mode & choose to refocus this raw power into creating Healthy Competitive Match-Ups that values the "sacrifices" that players make for their Home Server
  2. WvG needs to allow Friends & Family to play together even though they're from different Servers
  3. WvG needs to allow Off-peak capping, but let players to work out a solution themselves

VISION - What Do We Want WvG to Be?

WvG needs to encourage & nuture 3 Fundamental Concepts - Simple as A, B, and C


A ) World Server based War that can exponentially scale to Epically Global Proportions

  1. Create a WvG ecosystem that uses the natural differrences between Server Ranks to create niches for Long-Term Communities to develop their own unique preferences - i.e. [ Language, Time Zone, and Play Styles ]
  2. Map Access Mechanics are carefully used to expand or contract Capacity to create the right amount of space needed to encourage an exciting Theater of War at the various Levels within the WvG Server Rank ecosystem
  3. IF Demand is High enough - New Servers can be added to the War with an equal opportunity to increase their Rank through Healthy Competition that allows ALL Servers to Raid any #1 Ranked WvG Servers from available Regions - [ EU, NA, ASIA ]

B ) Game Mode that naturally nurtures Long Term Communities

  1. It's expected that All Communities wiil have a life cycle that involves being Born, Growing Up, Dying, and then being Re-Born again
  2. All Worlds should be able to increase their WvG Home Rank themselves, or through Players Creating Local or International Alliances with other Enemy Worlds by teaming up & Raiding a Common Enemy
  3. Worlds that have a declining population level are allowed to survive as they drop down in WvG Rank & away from being a Target for Lower Ranked Servers to Raid

C ) War between Worlds should typically have no borders, but should have limitations to reduce or prevent un-fair matches

  1. Players are given the ability to raid any World, but are Rewarded Only for raiding Equal or Higher Ranked Enemy Servers
  2. Players are given the ability to team up & play together with friends that have moved to other Enemy Worlds
  3. Core Base Map Mechanics naturally scales & adjusts to reduce or prevent un-fair matches from happening

CHAPTER 4


WvG MATCH-UP - Globe Raiding of Green & Blue - Weekly Picked by Players

2021.01.31 - This Post Last Updated


WvG - Table of Contentshttps://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/89449/wvg-world-vs-globes/p1


Original Base Concept 1 of 2 - See -CHAPTER 1 - REBOOT WvWOriginal Base Concept 2 of 2 - See - CHAPTER 2 - REDESIGN WvW


What are you fighting for?

If you're not here to fight & sacrifice for your Home World Server - Go find another thread to read - WvG isn't for you

If you hear the calling & share the passion…Imagine - RAID TEAM! - Stand Up - [ pause ] - Prepare to Engage! - [ pause ] - Step Forward


Step 1 - WvG - Ranking of World Servers

Calculate an Average Server Rank for each World Server based on a moving 12 month period on the 1st of every Month

i.e. - Server A - Consecutively Ranked 3 for 12 months = (3 x 12) / 12 = Average Rank is [ 3.000 ]

i.e - Server A - Consecutively Ranked 3 for 11 months & 4 for 1 month = ( (3 x 11) + 4 ) / 12 = Average Rank is [ 3.083 ]

Step 2 - WvG - Scoring of World Servers

  1. Adjustable Parameters related to [ Rank ] Updates on the [ 1st of every Month ] & [ Reset Friday ]
  2. A Server's Rank is based on the Total Points earned by players that picked it to be their Home World Server to Defend

  4. Players ARE NOT directly shown their Server's Total Points
  5. Players are in-directly shown the top (3) highest scoring enemies raiding their Home Server in a random "circling" order
  6. Players earn points by Opening WvG Reward Chests that appear after flipping "Capture Rings" at various WvG location objectives
  7. "Capture Rings" spawn WvG Reward Chests after players flip them for (x minutes) & remains active to let players collect their Points & Rewards for themselves & their Home Server
  8. "Capture Rings" may reset to "Not Captured" for some WvG location objectives to allow it to be "Re-Captured" by Home Defenders or Enemy Raiders

  2. Players are Rewarded ONLY when they defend their Home Server or Raid an Enemy "Globe" that's "Ranked Higher or Equal to" their Home Server
  3. Reward Exception - Players on a #1 Ranked WvG are Rewarded 2x for DEFENDING
  4. Reward Exception - Players on a #1 Ranked WvG are Rewarded 1x for RAIDING Enemy "Globes" - Average Rank 3 or below - (Rank Adjustable)
  5. WvG has a total of 51 Globes - Players are required to pick a single Globe to be their Home World Server to Defend from a list of 24 NA or 27 EU Globes
  6. Each Globe can contain ( 1 - 4 ) maps. High Ranked Servers are given 4 maps to defend while Low Ranked Servers are given 1 map to defend - (Numbers Adjustable)
  7. Adjusting the number of maps within a Globe helps to increase or decrease "seat" capacity of a Globe to host more or less players that are battling inside
  8. Maximum Globe "Seat" Capacity is set by ANet
  9. Seats are Reserved based on the following - [ Home Team - 45% ] / [ Enemy Raider = 40 %] / [ Referee = 15% ] - (Percents Adjustable)
  10. Players queue to wait for an open "seat" to enter a Globe
  11. Players can choose fight in EOTM while waiting in queue
  12. Players create their own Weekly Match-Ups by picking ANY (2) enemy Globes to Raid using a Re-Purposed
  13. Player's 1st Enemy Globe Choice is set to Green & 2nd Choice is set to Blue
  14. Map Way Points are re-designed for usage as follows - [ RED = Home Server ] while [ GREEN/BLUE = Enemy Raiders ]

Step 4 - WvG - Transferring of World Servers
