you could have saved yourself the wall of text and read where i typed IMO because thats exactly what it is, my opinion. It doesnt mean im right or wrong, ive played since the original beta and my funnest times in the game were during vanilla pvp b4 and after bg's came along.
What? I'm agreeing with you. Sure AV was ridiculous, but the same-server rivalries were so much fun. Knowing that if you queued up at a specific time and you'd be thrown into a BG with people you know and see everyday was intense.
Back then people PvP'd because it was fun. Now people grind honor endlessly, not caring about actual PvP because of the gear Blizzard has thrown at us. It's all in the attitude of modern gamers. No one wants to do anything because they enjoy it anymore. It has to have some reward attached to it. I understand wanting to PvP so you can get get so you can PvP even better, but it's just a pointless and heartless grind.
Let's accept the fact that World of Warcraft is not and will not ever be the same as us Original players experienced. Now that we got that out of the way, we can get back on-topic.
If this is really going to be Stormreaver's game, then the community of Stormreaver needs to build it. I've had a surprising number of in-game tells asking if I was going to change the targets, start the game again, and/or start a new game. Instead of trying to design and administrate this whole game by myself, let us, the community do it together.
Here's the theme that I imagine would best serve as the frame-work for Stormreaver's PvP Game:
You'll notice that on the main page there are rankings, recently killed, any many other neat things. If you click on someone's profile, you'll see in-depth stats that are always fun to compare and gawk at. When you see something like this how can you not but think of how competitive it could be. This would essentially serve as ultimate bragging rights, and a way to see who's, "Most Wanted".
I think the perfect system for a game like this would be where everyone is able to kill someone at any time and have it count towards something. The above are some thoughts of mine on the subject, but I do have many more ideas. I'd like to see what you, the community brainstorms in hopes we can develop something fun together. There's plenty of threads here on the official forums and on separate fan/community sites complaining about how World PvP is dead. If you are one of those people, then this is your chance to actually do something about it. Stop complaining and be a community member!
I'm really interested in your feedback, so I'm going to ask a few questions:
What do you think about the EvE Online killboards? (The killboards are community sustained, and aren't "official" which makes that pretty neat. I think we're able to do something similar, given enough interest.
Do you think we should specify a single zone to harbor this game? Think about Isle of Quel'danas PvP and how easy a game could have been made out of that.
What do you think we could do to promote this game and have a large community support?
Get at it!
There is some very decent world pvp that goes on in Tol Barad. I just hang out at the BBC. Every 5 minutes or so world pvp runs right on by and I have me some fun. Sometimes it can turn into hours of back and forth between the BBC and the horde base sort of like SS/Tarren Mill.
I think Tol Barad would be a perfect place to initiate something that I wrote about in my previous post.
What does everyone think about Tol Barad and future places like the Isle of Quel'danas?
Would people be interested in an actual website like the Killboards? It would take community support, but I think it'd be possible for Stormreaver to get there.
You can find a link to my Killboard suggestion to Blizzard in the General Discussion forum on the Official World of Warcraft Forum here: http://us.battle.net:80/wow/en/forum/topic/2301732790
Comment if you support :)
Also please let me know what you think here about implementing it community-side. Who knows if Blizzard would ever run with this idea.
There was some good stuff happening in TBP last night!
Hah, I'll be back out there soon. Gonna knock out the grinding portion of The Insane first. :) I'll be back in a few days.
