xan.8549 Posted April 10, 2021 Share Posted April 10, 2021 Alright, put some thought into this one. I know most of this will fall on deaf ears bc 99.99% of the community omni blobs with a map que or doesnt play at all so here goes. The future of WVW will be greated with MORE dmg nerfs i know its hard to believe but its coming u can bank on it. This game was initially created on the idea that you would heal yourself. That is and has not been the case since April of 2014 the official date the game went full woke. Now all u will have are advocates that state dmg is fine, learn to play all that jazz. Also, it will fall on deaf ears because most of the player base that "would be" at or above the 8 year mark are virtually non existent. Most players are new and dont know how things once where. So now the current state of things is group up with tons of "friends" and cc spam the ever loving hell out of some dude and condi nuke him. Conditions used to not be a spec it wasnt something u would run into very often about the only condi you would encounter is an Engineer or a Necro. Everything else was so bad at it it wasnt even worth attempting in favor of something that took more skill. Now that monetization is an issue as the loyalist playerbase has left or is leaving you have the newer ultra defensive casual gamer dads coming in, perhaps due to unforseen circumstances or perhaps Covid related.In may of 2014 ranked pvp the minstrel amulet was added to pvp. A BAD all caps druid was quite literally un-killable. This has stayed the course, if u are a competent veteran who knows what their doing u can troll an enemy in berserker gear indefinitely. Toughness has never been balanced and never will be so its scaling is out of control and people know this. If a subpar tank with say 2700+ toughness fights a rank 1 pvp god in berserker amulet the better player isnt just going to lose, hes going to get absolutely ruined. Ive seen the evidence in players that are infinately better than I am. So instead of just complaining like a big baby and getting nothing accomplished i have a proposal.WVW Map vote poling. I am almost certain across the playerbase everyones favorite map by quite a bit is EBG. The distance u travel to get from one place to another or to rejoin the fight is the shortest.Create a clone of EBG except give it a new name and make it the que map for waiting for the main ebg, instead of a castle in the center just make it a keep.Now, since toughness auto invuln procs and builds with 100% uptime on protection will NEVER be touched because of how hard it carries , I propose an Elite EBG with better rewards!The elite EBG would have the same setup as the one we have now except the player will be met with a choice of the CURRENT pvp amulets - Devastator or whatever the tanky one is called. They will earn pips at a higher rate, and the downstate HP will be 66% less. If met with limited toughness and lower downstate hp the fights will be much faster and more fun. And it can be a choice! wanna stay terrible and get carried by passive invulns and infinate protection coupled with 3000+ armor and duel ppl to bm them??? u can!! You could just join the Vanilla EBG. The likelihood of this proposal is coming to life is -5000% chance but atleast its a thought that was put out there. The only people who are complaining about the game state as far as I can tell are veterans, the newer folks advocate for more tankiness, more passives and more Map que size friendly changes, Im simply proposing a new way of thinking that would be more appealing to people at the higher skill level that dont need rediculously high tankiness and passives to save them to enjoy the game. Do i wish desperately this conversation would go somewhere? Absolutely, will it? More than likely no.I appreciate anyone who plays alot because if we all didn't play Gw2 there would be no Gw2 to play. Im simply trying to incentivise bettering oneself as a player rather than betgging Anet for more automatic carrie type abilities and infinate Dmg reductions that have gone a little out of control.If you choose to slander my post based on your current experience its very unlikely you played Vanilla Gw2 - Pre carry.Side not, Adding to the topic of the elite EBG the conditions would be reverted to thier original state and would not be stacking. I hope we can get some thoughtful contributions to the conversation rather than no scoping literal bots in blue and greens that have no idea what thier doing. <3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
