    Actually I'm not a fan of the instanced PvP. Personally I hate it. Also do you mean it was marketed like this prior to the KR release or the NA/EU release?
    For now I'm going to presume the KR release. So in that case, I am actually glad they did things like that, changing things from being instanced to making it actually impact the world and exist in the open world. That to me is an MMORPG, not the silly instanced, separate everyone because we don't want to step on toes stuff we see in most modern MMORPGs. I will admit the karma system could use some work, but outside of that everything else is fine. Someone bullying your spawns? Do something about it. Go bully their spawns, go have fun with other people even if you are trying to kick in their virtual face.
    An MMORPG is a Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game and to be honest this is the first one I've played in a very long time that actually feels like thats what it is.
    I take no issue on any side of it, PvE, PvP, RP, ERP, whatever. I have no issues with any of those aspects even if I don't participate in all of them. Why? Because I'm going to enjoy what I came here to enjoy regardless of whatever else anyone else is doing. I see some RPers RPing? Whatever, cool story. I see two giants making out and stripping each other in the streets of Heidel? Sure, whatever, enjoy. If I'm grinding out levels and someone flags on me? Great, lets have some -----ing fun.

    This.
    This game was marketed as an MMORPG, like it or not an MMORPG has PvE and PvP and the mechanics of this MMORPG support both sides in different ways. Practically everything in this game is there for a reason, to accomplish some short term goal or long term goal. If you don't want to PvP then that's fine, but if you are venturing out into the world to explore and experience and you get up in someone's territory then you are going to get killed. There is your immersion. That is what an MMORPG should have. A sense of adventure, a sense of risk when you head out into the world, not just from the mobs but also from potentially hostile players that may explode you either "just cuz" or because you are all up in their business.
    If you're grinding gear or levels then you should absolutely expect PvP and you should not shy away from it. You want to experience this world? PvP is a part of this world. Get used to it. You'll get your dungeons eventually, but hey again, still gonna be PvP. So still...get used to it.
    RIP the days of Ultima Online.

  4. Jefferson added a post in a topic Vampiric Warrior Idea   

    Warriors also get more than enough lifesteal when greatsword comes out. Not a necessary build idea for right now since it will cripple you when they release awakenings and you could have much better effects on your awakened skills than Heal 4 HP.

  5. Jefferson added a post in a topic Daum I desperately want to play your amazing game, but...   

    You're obviously not PvPing right then.
    Join a guild, declare on other guilds, contest farm spots. Have at it.
     
    An MMORPG is a social genre of video game.Join a bigger guild if you're not already in one, or just maybe get your guild a little bigger, and just go around collecting salt.

  6. Jefferson added a post in a topic Daum I desperately want to play your amazing game, but...   

    This game knows exactly what it wants to be. An MMORPG. It just tries to encompass most aspects of the game into the rest of the game. PvE can affect PvP and PvP can affect PvE (Pking and the like).
    Deal with it.

    So what you're saying is you acknowledge that you're incapable of fighting Veritas in an even fight despite all your claims previously?
    Why so flip floppy? You a pancake?

  8. Jefferson added a post in a topic Ghillie needs fix   

    You don't even need the cash shop items to deal with it.
    Also your tactics aren't really changing, nor should that even be an issue to begin with. PvP in this game is about altering your tactics to deal with different situations. Class related, environment related, group related, gear related or individual related.
     
    Are you looking at your screen? There 99% of it is done. It's up to you to process that information and turn it into a reaction on your end. Same as literally anything and everything else in this game that you encounter. First time you fought a ranger 1v1? First time you fought a geared ranger 1v1? First time you fought a really good, geared ranger 1v1? First time you fought a really good, geared, higher level ranger 1v1? First time you fought a ranger and a valkyrie? First time you fought in a group of five people against five other people? First time you've fought in a large zerg on zerg fight?
    Absolutely no different.

  9. Jefferson added a post in a topic Ghillie needs fix   

    Ghillie isn't OP. It isn't pay to win, it isn't even supremely detrimental to people with certain colorblindness.
    I'm red-green colorblind (Deuteranopia) and I'm not complaining about the ghillie being a thing. I have one, actively use it and have no problems with people who also use it.
    Instead of looking for the big standout colors, look for -movement-. Not to mention they do still glow which gives them a tint that is still fairly easily identifiable on top of the fact that your cursor changes design which you can also see attached to them.
     
    This is an issue where you just need to adapt to the style of the game where it is not going to hand you everything on a platter. Having trouble spotting people in ghillies? Learn to spot movement and other indicators.
    Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Practice.

  10. Jefferson added a post in a topic Gear, levels, and TTK out of control - No balance at all   

    I've seen level 50s beat level 51 and level 52s, I've also seen people lesser geared beat people more geared. Is it more difficult? Yes. Does the amount of time spent acquiring better gear affect your effectiveness in PvP? Yes. Will a higher level have an advantage against a lower level? Yes.
    Does skill trump most of those factors? Yes. Absolutely.
    This game has a very steep learning curve when it comes to PvP. Practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice.
     
    Practice.

    Too many cyclops. Pretty soon my eyes are going to merge into a single eye.

    Just give server transfers on Uno, so people can relocate if they want/need to. This needs to happen ASAP and not a week or two weeks from now.

  13. Jefferson added a post in a topic Servers need to go down NOW   

    Agreed. Bring the servers down, we can pick up where we left off after the issues are resolved.

    You. I like you.
    I have some pretty vested interest in joining the guild, been a while since I've been this interested in MMORPG PvP so I'd love to be a part of a community like this.

  17. Jefferson added a post in a topic Question about buying the game post release   

    There may be a physical copy option but most games, especially MMORPGs, these days are just going with straight digital downloads so there is no physical disk required. Preordering will essentially "flag" your account to get access to a digital download for the game rather than it just reserving a physical copy of the game for you that you then get mailed/held for you at a store.
