The thread wants to make PvP a priority, which is not the correct move. I agree that adding some content for PvPers would certainly be helpful, but will never and should never be the priority in this game.

A fair point.

People taking things to the extreme in general is bad for the game.

My brother...SWTOR PvP has been in Maintenance Mode for over a year and a half. While you have my full support in your effort, reality is a ***** in this case. BW isn't good at PvP. They created an excellent combat system, but pretty much effed up everything else. And it wasn't like they didn't try. BW gave it their best shot...talked big, and even delivered, on almost everything they promised. The intention was good, but the execution was horrible and almost everything they created for PvP was either half-baked (Ranked) or flat out screwed up (original Ilum).

So they rallied the wagons and figured out what they are good at...Story. And now they are going to do that. More power to them. The PvP in this game is still fun, but it will never be epic. Just roll with it and have what fun you can. Casual PvP is casual...

I think the PvP is fine, I am glad the new PvP gear is not that much below the PvE gear, so crossing between the two becomes easier. What I think should be a priority is cross-server tech, not just for warzones, but also for starfighter and even for flashpoints would be nice.

When you play the game of PvP, you win or you die.

I agree PvP needs some attention. It shouldn't be -THE- priority, but it should be a priority just like other main aspects of the game.

PvE and RP have been priorities for some time now, well over a year and a bit. While I understand that BW have to chase the money- but as others have said, the infinite variety of PvP is gonna help see people through the long weeks and months between episodes of the story. Just 1 map with a 200 kill team death-match can't be that hard can it?

Story may have been the focus in 2015, but 2016 should be PvP!!!
No, every player I know does not PVP thus it should not be a priority. I know more players than you thus you are a minority.

If it's not that much different why bother having it any different at all?

Bolster everyone to same stats - let the battle rage may the most skilled win.

If that ever happens, then the PvP centric crowd better get something epic that requires a lot of PvP to earn.

So much this.

A fairly large group of my friends and I started playing the game right out of beta, and most of us were players who enjoyed both PvE and PvP. We would do some of the class stories and flashpoints one day and do PvP the next. Both were important to how long we decided to stick with the game.

I had to take an extended absence because of real life stuff but returned 4-5 months ago. None of my friends play anymore. When I try to get them to come back, often the only thing they ask about is whether PvP has gotten any attention. Because it hasn't, they stay away. And I'm sure they aren't the only ones.

I would like to continue playing the game, but will probably stop for a bit after running a few characters through the current KotFE chapters. I'll resub once the rest have been released to finish up, but if PvP were better (or there was any indication that it wasn't being completely ignored) I would stay subbed throughout.

Making PvP a priority (note, for people who still can't seem to grasp the difference, I didn't say the priority) is not a worthless endeavor. It will bring players like my friends back, and it will keep players like myself here full time.
BLAH BLAH, DON'T CARE.
