The first part of that may be true, I honestly don't know. I've never played an MMO that had PvE and PvP coexist well. PvP draws the short end of the stick as it's not the selling point of the game to a large audience, most of the time. Apparently a raging neckbeared seized your keyboard upon the completion of your first sentence though so everything else is just cum drizzling stupidity.

You would have to be extremely delusion to not agree with the FACT that people like to do the best with the least amount of work (aka. fotm rerolling). PvP games are insanely, insanely insanely popular, much more than PvE games by far. LoL is the most popular game and its completely PvP. MMO developers just have this convoluted view that PvP has to be intertwined into PvE, but then always pick PvE balance and game development first.

Guildwars 2 did a good job separating PvE and PvP and everyone was pretty damn happy until the developers took 9 months for the first update that was promised 1 month after launch.

I absolutely guarantee you that I, and many other people on here, could do a better job at making WoW PvP balanced and fun than the developers have.


#3970183 Have arena changes made it better for rusty players looking for games?

Posted Voksen on 22 October 2013 - 03:09 AM

Maybe so, but they've also reduced the "seriousness" of pvp.

Things about newschool WoW that suck and make the game less competitive IMO:

- Not having skirmishes definitely makes it harder to enjoy arenas for the sake of it, or meet randoms.  
No way to really solo-experiment and solo-practice in a pseudo-arena setting.
- Not having trollish team names, workable armories which list match history, progression, etc.

Add to that the same old boring grind for gear:
- STILL the most determining success factor in games.
(comp, class, build, and player skill fall after gear in more or less that order, especially in high-rated games.).

What you're left with is something that still charges ~$14/month for long-wait queues and fairly scripted fotm/cookiecut encounters between the same 2-3 teams all night.

So yes, to answer your theme there is a lot going for WoW as a pvp game, especially for rusty players and casuals.  But its of lesser intellect than it used to be.  Now they charge $14/month and reward kids for spamming the correct button sequence of the correct spec of the correct comp faster than the other team.  The level of tactical/strategic thinking and diversity of playstyles is minimal as all viable innovation has been mapped out, explored, and over-played to death.

Like when talking to a girl at a bar, "I have an epic dick".

Or when buddies are over and you just get out of the washroom, "I had an epic shit".

I'm no racist. Racism is a crime. And crime is for black people.

I reported you for that. Not because it's offensive, but just because I hate you.
