Hello my name is Daddy from Mystel server. As I've heard and figure how this new patch will impact on PVP community i decided make this post.
First of all i want introduce myself, i've been doing pvp since game release , playing every content possible and seeing how PVP keep getting worse after every patch, so im kinda confident i have enough exp for talk about how new update will affect us
Main pvp feature on this patch will be the change of the unequalized gear on Shore hold. How this can impact on the game?
Shore hold its a Battleground mainly played for experienced players only, why?
because its a 7vs7 where each team has one healer only and there is a lot of pressure over him/her, to the point most of tera players maining healer classes just dont go Shore hold, because of the pressure he has over him.
I need to emphasize this battleground barely pop and when it does, you have proper geared peopple with pvp knowledge.
Changing to an eq gear (as CS) will make the battleground able for more ppl which its good, but at what point?
There will be geared ppl farming/kicking to this new players, geared dps being able to One-shot to anybody there, and more.
Because of those points, "new peopple" will go play shore on first days only and never come back due to reasons mentioned before.
In the same way,"old peopple" who used to play shore often will stop playing it because it will be ruinned.
This "change" will end with less players in que on a BG which had already problems to make it pop
There are certain points mentioned time ago about why BG's are slowly dying and its because they are not rewarded as PVE.
Even when there will be new mats on Bg shop, prices are kinda far to being reasonable and they were setted like that for someone who clearly has no idea about how Pvp works.
The intention behind those changes are good, but they are bad implemented and wont make pvp get better, even will make it worse...
After this patch, a good intention from devs, like add rewards on pvp shop and change shore hold gear will end in kill the respective BG and lose one more pvp content.
The only pvp content remaining on tera right now its CS, Shore hold and CU (since gvg/pk were removed) and instead of help, you are killing one.
There are many ways to make PVP better, add additional rewards its a good step but not enough/good implemented.
This post was made as a request for let Shore hold as an unqualized battleground.
In case there's interest from devs/publisher to make pvp better, will post some suggestions:
- Bring back FWC (most popular BG ever)
- Bring back outlaw in certain areas like Velika outskirts
-Add additional rewards for a fair price
-Add pvp jackpots as old times
