At least thats my perspective. Almost everyone I used to play with from my first 2 servers is gone. We had some very competetive rated teams back in the day. And we were asking for cross servers soon after rateds came out. BW screwed up with rateds - released them too late and never got cross server going or any type of real reward/incentive, rankings, etc.

Most of the best PVPers are long gone, and the game has been steadily bleeding PVPers since. Dont mean to be too negative, maybe this is just my perspective, but I think its too late. Too much damage has already been done, NOTHING has been done with rateds since they were introduced.
Yes yes a lot of good people left thats why we need something to breathe new air into an almost empty community.

Who knows xserver will bring more action, more competition with better teams playing each other and starter teams building up experience with their equals. Maybe some PvPers might come back to test the challenge, maybe new players will try PvPing for once.

Its either that or give up the game completely, which is something all of us are on the verge of doing but still, if were posting we care.

Gief Xserver.

I for one don't buy that "most of the great PvP-ers are gone" stuff. Sure, there have been good people that left the game but somehow their image got so distorted now that they are gone and people remember them like some sort of PvP gods. I think the best PvP-ers are still in this game and there are still more than enough people around to make competitive PvP great. But for that we need cross server. And cross server together with a matchmaking system will encourage many new teams to start participating as well and they could actually progress and improve if they are not rolfstomped by a top team over and over again.

Cross server queues along with a matchmaking system would definitely kick new live into PvP. But the last time I heard a developer talk about cross server, they said it was "on the back-burner" so that probably explains why no yellow text is showing up in any of these threads.

The above is a good observation and I actually agree with you for once. It's interesting how a lot of so-called "great PvP-ers" disappeared when the gear advantage began to thin. A true champion isn't just someone that wins a title, but one that defends it as well.

Most players have gone period. There are still good ones but there are fewer. All rated games have done is drive people to quit the game. That's just the simple unforetunate truth. Bad teams get frustrated and quit, good teams get bored and quit. It's similar to what's happening in the NBA right now. Stack all of the best players on the same team and it ruins the competitiveness of the game.
