  1. Konrad Knox added a post in a topic {RoW} Ravens of War [Mercenary RP-PvP] - Looking for skilled PvPers GS 390+   

    RP Update:
    *Konrad sits down in his office and slowly, carefully, spells the report line by line in the company books. The large hand struggles with the quill, shaking fingers handling the writing implement with more tension than a sword. He writes very slowly, but does so correctly, checking grammar for references in other books. Never a master of spelling and certainly a novice at punctuation, he takes a long time cross referencing books, having some difficulty reading at times. But he is patient and eventually produces a complete and correctly written report on the first try, without cross-outs or blotches.*

    Following a successful performance through the past 3 months, the Company closes its second fiscal quarter with the following profits and total budget.

    The total earnings from maintaining the territory of Altinova Gate ledger had come out to the capital spending funds equal to:

    Going by Highest fort % would also be a good idea. And probably easier to code. Good thinking, Parae.

    I mean, not all guilds are top tier. Understandable that ManUp, Alloy, Barcode - can melt bases in 10 minutes.

    But is this who the game is geared towards? The overgeared minority? Why?

    We're not ManUp. We have average geared players. We're having good even fights, and our siege mounts slower, we don't instantly melt bases when they're defended by people of equal power, when there are multiple guilds creating additional chaos in the scenario.

    Node War Timer Enhance
    5 guilds on one node. We mount proper offense, take out 3 guilds out of 4, slow and steady, because we're evenly matched, but we're outplaying them, just to run out of time, everyone's two hours are wasted. Needed only 20 more minutes.

    It's insane to expect such a pace of pvp.

    I suggest that for 2 guilds on a node, the limit is 2 hours.
    Then, for each additional guild, you add 30 more minutes to node war timer.

    3 guilds - 2.5 hours
    4 guilds - 3 hours
    5 guilds - 3.5 hours
    6 guilds - 4 hours
    7 guilds - 4.5 hours

    I was once on a node war of 11 forts. How do you expect that done in 2 hours?

    April 4th at Primal Giant Post:

    RavensOfWar vs ITC vs Lifestyle

    Lifestyle's fort got destroyed first, as it was in the middle, between ITC and RoW. Both guilds were plucking at it independently, without collaboration. ITC took it down.
    RoW stalemated vs ITC, with RoW being on the offensive the entire time, but unable to establish a reliable breach. Not enough time. Another 1-2 hours woulda done it. We destroyed their base once, but they rolled us out and rebuilt.
    Turtling is hard to deal with in a span of 2 hours. They should make the defenders of nodes the incumbent owners, rather than just liberate. Because why come attack our node if you're just gonna turtle. Everyone turtles.

    Here's a crazy idea? Go Shadowbane route. Let the node owner determine when it goes live? So the defender guild can be assembled in its fullest! Crazy huh?

    Well it's not just me, but there's plenty of people legit in west coast US, like Seattle, or Portland, or California, who have over 1 hour commute from work. They leave at 5 PM, and are still in traffic at 6 PM. They really need that extra hour to show up.
    I mean, you have your average gamer dad, who works for a living and puts hard earned money into BDO, and every day he has to drive home through THIS:

    Do we really want Steve the Dad to hurry up through this traffic and risk his life and leave his wife a widow and his children orphans over a node war?

    Bad for me, being west coast. I leave work at 5 PM. Node war now starts at 6 PM. You want to put it back to 5 PM.
    I can't walk out of my office and drive home in 0 minutes guys.

    Please, analyze your playerbase.
