Ghillie is a must have for 1v1. If you don't have one, or can't afford one, just don't engage in 1v1 and grind in a group so you don't get ganked.

wrong mentality

1vs1 against ghillie is easyly doable, why reply on their hp bar just keep fighting till they drop "INVISIBLE CHARACTER" use your eyes to spot them in a boss battle you dont look at its hp bar only right? you look at its movements and they are pretty damn clearly to see

Only thing needed to change is once you attack you lose the ability to hide your nameplate until you are out of combat. That simple really no need to remove or rework it.

So if you try to find someone who killed you and there are 2 people with the suit in the area and same class, how do you "SPOT" them?

Seriously, it is imbalanced, it makes PvP with people having it more advantage.

they never should have made p2w shit.

So

- rework to remove all cheated advantage

or

- make the suit buyable IN GAME

Ofc, dont refund ppl that bought it because its a p2w crap, imho, that their own fault for beeing somes coward player that need to pay to compensate their lack of courage in pvp and get easy win. That's pathetic

That only solve 1 problem, the problem is PvP and recognize who is your enemy. If you try to revenge on random PK, too bad you can't see their name and in GvG, use flare, but wrong person, then what?

Nothing. The suit would be doing its purpose. Which is to hide the user until his/her cover is blown.

No you don't, stop lying. Or maybe you are the one with the suit.

Seriously, how do you revenge people if you don't see their name? Or GvG if you don't even know they are your enemy?

It just seems to undermine everything the game is trying to do. It promotes open world PvP and GvG. It's litterally the main component that draws people to this game. Why retract from that focus by making battles easier to avoid.

The fact is without this item being a Paid item it wouldn't exist. It simply is a manipulative mechanic to get people to spend more money and it's trying extra hard to do so. I was told buy to play with cosmetic cash shop. And I get this...

I think it is a stupid item that needs to get removed. It gives people pvp advantages at the cost of real money. Basically : p2w.

It not also breaks the immersion of the world when everyone looks the same (and looking pretty ugly at it) but you are forced to get one if you plan on group pvp. 

Lets say I'm the only player in a 30vs30 fight without the treant suit, and im a wizard. All the enemies have to do is say in ventrilo/discord "all attack genoxide" and im toast.

With the treant suit they wont be able to single me out if i stand inside the zerg. If they say "all attack the wizard in the middle of the group", and we have 5 wizards they wont be able to coordinate to take one of us down since we can blend in with the others.

Ive also talked to some of the major pvp guilds and they all say that ghillie suit is an requirment to join because its just that damn good.

So wanna join a good guild ? Well pay tons of real money!

Tell me about it.

I am level 51 and today I died 10 times, 3 times from the same person, but I killed that person once.

4 times from random at Catfish with a party, but again I manage to find that person and revenge.

Now the last 3 times, it is from 2 Guille suit people. 2 from a ranger and 1 from a sorc. This pisses me off really bad, I try to find ranger after respawn, only to get team up, then another from soloing the sorc, but got d/c and die. The problem is 3 death, I got hit first because I am not sure if it is the same people, so basically I lost 1/3 of my hp before I even start to fight.

This suit is PAY2WIN by any definition. It allows user to hide from others and avoid the most basic concept of PvP, which to identify the person you want to fight with.

Edit: All 10 death happens in 3 hours. Too many PvP today, but I am fine with it.

I had originally thought this set was made so gatherer's at level 50 could gather without being PK'd as easily.. so I had assumed their nameplate would show whilst in combat.

 

I was wrong. Where its at now, it is an advantage to whoever is using it. You can argue "just look at their character", but the reality is its making the player do more work to PvP. People with the suit have an advantage against those without, and that's a fact. Its a million times easier to spot someone who has huge white (or blue) letters above their name than it is without. I believe it should just hide your name while outside of combat.. yes, its still advantageous, but nowhere near where its at now.

Easy solution would be that while you're wearing a Ghillie Suit everyone else's nametags are invisible to you.  Not perfect but it levels the playing field a bit.

that option is visible in settings, hence would upset everyone who bought it

Funny lots of these people keep saying "We are paying entry fees for this game to prevent P2W", yet they are the one that are willing to give money to any P2W elements as soon as possible.

Doesn't matter what they do, if they remove it then it should be refunded in pearls so they can buy non-"P2W" stuff. No reason to remove it and not refund it. You want the forums to blow up?!
