1. Learn to play with Casual players(Bads)
2. Give an way so someone new to learn what every type of class can do at lvl 55(so every one knew that Assassins have 25% boost to damage to shock, Powertechs get healing when hit with AoE attacks and so on...)Not knowing about other classes strengths,weaknesses and rotation discourage me to play PvP because i don't know what to do when 1 vs 1 and ultimately fail in that. And real WZ action isn't the best place to learn it
Processing...

Isn't a regular Warzone the PERFECT place to learn that? Not only that, but also how to tell what player knows what he/she is doing and going to do and what player isn't? Because that's a HUGE part of the play, I think.

There is a huge part called experience in the PvP play. Way more than any scripted encounter could provide. It's called 'expecting and working with the human factor'. That's the part that makes target-switching useful: Beating the healer - beating his mate - switch back and kill the healer... as a classic move. Or using a mezz to "pull their breaker" or any of that... Where else if not in nrwz and nrarena WOULD you practise that?

I'd agree on most of the nerf-demands being based on a) not knowing WHY that other player did what he did or b) the basic understanding that oneself OUGHT to be invincible or have a close-to-equal-chance-solo. I guess many a whine originates by the strong feeling one-on-one fights can trigger.

Remove it entirely.

Yes, really:

There's just no bloody point to it anymore, except on PvP servers where you want full-Expertis'ed gear to cruise the world with, and that can be had --top-tier ear/implant/relics + optimised mid-tier-- in 1-3 weeks of very casual play.

So yeah: What's the point?

E:

Either that, or, tell the "combat-team" that they have 30 minutes to clean out their desks before Security escorts them from the building, and hire people who actually have a shred of vision and competence.

I do both, and am kinda wondering that myself.

But at least the PvE end of things doesn't just have gear-grind for the sake of gear-grind --updated with new gear-grinds!-- without at least the illusion of varied content that someone clearly gives a **** about.

Merge ranked and regular into one thing that rewards the regular WZ Commendation and based on some KPI -say wins and Medals- Ranked Commendation awarded.

Ranked gear is better in looks and stats...This way it rewards staying in the game even if losing and focusing on Medals and other KPI's.
