Give the PvP'ers a Limited Time In-game Event!

Alright Bio-Ware. I was discussing with some friends about the Gree event that went away for a week or so and then came back. Then a light bulb clicked! What better way to reward the PvP crowd than to create a recurring PvP EVENT!

Some ideas are as follows:

Make it like a Hutt sponsored tournament. Imps vs. Pubs 4v4 or 8v8
You can promote a server wide effort by not allowing any teams to queue for it, would have to be solo queue only. Or normal queue rules could still apply, up to you of course.

Whenever a team wins a match it tallies onto a giant scoreboard or something, could even have like the fund raising thermometers and you have to fill it with imp/pub blood. The more wins server wide your faction racks up certain rewards or pve missions (give the pve'ers something to do) or vendors you have access to.

You can even throw it in to your reputation pool kick that you have going on now, and the only way to gain reputation is by participating in the tournament. Like valor/comms for win/loss now. Heck you could even award the currency needed to buy the stuff as well so people will continue to queue even after they've maxed their rep for the week!

Maybe some other folks can add some other ideas they would like to see for a pvp event.

Rewards

Now me personally, on the loading screen I've seen that the pvp crates are supposed to have some sort of extremely rare combat reusable that no one has ever seen. Maybe the ultimate reward is whoever fills up their thermometer the fastest has the ability to buy a warzone medpac that doesn't get consumed on use, or warzone adrenal that doesn't get consumed on use.

For getting Legend with the faction you can buy some sort've gaudy and large unique speeder.

A Solid Black color crystal with expertise.

Then a slew of new PvP gear and other rewards based on reputation standing.

I think a gesture like this would really show the PvP community that you haven't neglected them and you still care enough to do something special for them.

While I like the idea of ANYTHING added to PvP, I dont think that should be the 1st baby step to fixing PvP.

Baby step 1: Add kill rewards for all OWPvP. Diminishing rewards for level difference(ie 25% off each level, so for 2 level difference 50% rewards to prevent higher levels farming lowbies) and diminishing rewards for time (ie 10% off for each minute after they were recently killed, for exampe 100% for 1st minute, 50% at 5 mins, 30% at 7 mins, until they are worth full rewards again @ 10 mins) This needs to be in effect on all PvP planets like Voss, Hoth, Tat....

Baby Steps 2: Valor Skill Tree

Baby Step 3: OW PvP Objectives (relics, bases, starports, etc)

Baby Step 4: Insert your Event here. Or have other random events or short term objectives to inspire PvP in odd places. Maybe a pvp event in a persistent version of Void Star or some other star ship.

Baby Step 5: Space Mission PvP (guild ships and personal)

I don't get you peoples obsession with killing premades... If you want to PUG pvp and play by yourself.. go down to walmart or gamestop and pick up a copy of Call of Duty and have at it.. This is a MMORPG its meant to be played with friends and others.. the lack of group dynamics in this game is astounding and you all push for more of it.. its just sad.

^^^^ aka PLEASE OH PLEASE LET ME KEEP MY PREMADE GROUP, i can't win if i pug like everyone else because.... im just not good enough.

lol g.t.f.o kid. the casual players will make this game far more money than the hardcore gamers, which are also most premade groups. if you are such a badazz go join ranked. oh wait because you really aren't that good unless you have a pocket healer.

I'm not saying these are steadfast rules. I'm just giving ideas to BW. If there was a NPC that you had to talk to in order to queue up for this event then they could control whether or not they would allow solo or up to 16 person queues. The idea behind solo queue only is to promote SERVER wide solidarity not which guilds are better.

U mad bro?

I sense a lot of anger towards people playing together.. Were you always picked last in school? Someone says they like to play with other people you start raging about who is a badazz and who is good with pocket healers and such.. no one said anything about any of that.. such a shame.. its quite pathetic. That is exactly how an anti-social idiot would act..

In the end, the best possible solution must be to only allow Pug vs Pug and Premade vs Premade though? At this time, i suppose queue times would increase dramatically for premades - so i agree that it's out of the question currently, but if they ever managed to dish out a system that allowed fast queues such as x-server queues...

Can't blame a guy for not wanting to face premades in a PUG, and can't blame another guy for wanting to queue with his friends either.

BioWare's "Among the best in the world" pvp-devteam are the ones that chose to implement pvp in it's current form, and i can only hope they will come up with a solution that allows us to play the way we prefer.

aka the "Premaders are by nature bad players, and I am so awesome that if I chose to group up with even one other person, I would destroy everything in sight, but I don't because I like the personal challenge of playing solo, and losing" angle. Kid.
