Good evening everyone!
My name is Sem, better known as Buscus and I am a PvP player from Killian. In this thread I will list my worries
about the current situation of PvP. I hope you understand my points/concerns (and the concerns of
many other PvP players) that I will list in this thread.
Since the merge that we as Killian players asked for, the overall population of the server has been
improved significantly, yet the overall gaming experience of a PvP player has been worse than it ever
was. The main reason for this is the removal of open world PvP (PK/Outlaw). I know this has been
addressed several times before in this forum, yet I feel the need to list some points in a more clear
manner than was done before.
Why is the removal of PK such a big problem?
I can explain this the best by giving the following example: let’s say all the PvE people in this game
have the choice of doing a total of 3 different dungeons that have been around for years and the
possibility to do competitive/challenging PvE in the open world. Then, Gameforge decides to remove
the possibility to do the competitive/challenging PvE in the open world. So, your only choice that is
left as a PvE player is to do the 3 different dungeons that have been around for years. Answer for
yourself: Would that ruin your gaming experience?
This is exactly the situation for PvP at the moment. There was always a lack of PvP content in Tera
due to the devs not making any new battlegrounds/original PvP events. Yet we could create our own
content by doing open world PvP that wasn’t limited to just GuildvsGuild. Now that that is gone,
there is just not enough PvP content for us to enjoy.
Of course, the argument that Gameforge gave us is valid. There are only a limited amount of PvP
players left in this game, so why would they make the server PvP? This is true and we understand it
completely. That’s why instead of making the whole server a PvP zone (which would ruin the
gaming experience of many PvE players), make Velika Outskirts a PvP zone (which is where all the
PK’ing in the last 5+ years took place). This approach will not affect PvE players (since why would
they be in Velika outskirts?) but will give the PvP players that are left in this game the possibility to
actually enjoy PvP again.
Other than that, I’ve talked to countless of inactive players from Killian. The main reason of them
quitting/not wanting to come back is that there is no open world PvP anymore. So if Gameforge
decides to make VO a PvP zone again, I bet there will be a big return of inactive PvP players from Killian.
Nonetheless there are still hundreds of players playing at this moment that actually enjoy PvPing in
Tera. Instead of ignoring their presence and taking content from them, why not give them their most
enjoyably piece of content back when it doesn’t negatively affect anyone else?
