Well I just reached lv 50 today on my main and decided to go to Ilum for some fun open world pvp, haha what a joke. Needless to say, I was disappointed. As an Imp we owned all the points and there was absolutly nothing for me to do there. I roamed around the whole battle area and saw only one other guy there who laughed at me when I asked him what I was supposed to do there. Yeah the jokes on me for having hopes to have some fun open world semi-structured pvp.

I just hope they can come up with a better idea for open world pvp because I think this game is cool, but if GW2 pvp end up being better ill just have to jump ship as I only have enough time to invest in one mmo.

Even if Bioware just steals the open world structure from Gw2 (WAR) I would be cool with that.

I take it you don't read patch notes or any kind of news?

Ilum has been dead since 1.2

You only go there for:

A) Fresh 50 doing the story line.

B) Dailies.

Well there's also the valor buff, but valor doesn't mean anything anymore so yeah....

It was also said that they will rework Ilum, but that take time... until then no meaningful open world PvP there.

Well that is good to know, I hope they come up with something great. I think even a closed world pvp battle field would be nice like, Tol Barad (WOW), were it would have a 2 hour or so interval and a queue and cap system to keep lag down, as well as a bolster system for the outnumbered faction.

There is nothing wrong with stealing ideas, as long as they're good ones.

Why go to Ilum if you can stay in the fleet, queue for a warzone and be teleported there, you can leave whenever you want and you actually gain rewards? It's a legitimate question.

Well it should, in my opinion, give a high amount of comms for killing and capturing, and a server wide buff would be nice. But you are dead on. There is not enough incentive to motivate people.

I would like to add that despite some of the apparent issues, I am really enjoying this game. I would like to see it continue to grow.
