Well, I don't see too many people complaining about the lack of PvE queue pops.
Spoiler


So I meet people in PvP. And I try to remember the good ones. And I am happy when I see them again... drop a few lines in chat... yes, I like seeing good people several times.
When you say good ones, are you referring to all of the skilled PvPers that unsubscribed?

Cross server queue is only necessary due to the dwindling amount of people that still PvP. If each server was thriving with plenty of people doing PVP then cross server wouldn't be necessary. However, this is not the case. Server populations are now low and either they need to merge servers again or implement cross server. But I think we've all had enough of servers being merged.

Cross server queue for ranked WZs would actually make the leader boards mean far more. It also means there's a far larger pool of players to play with and against which makes ranked far more appealing.


The dwindling PvP community on each server and the game as a whole plus the development team's lack of plans for PvP is extremely discouraging. It's been especially discouraging seeing a ton of really good players quitting the game.

There's a snowball effect going on here and the devs are going to have to make a serious effort on their end if they want to stop it. Even more so since they supposedly want this game to have plenty of competitive PvP...But, I suspect this is a lie. If they really wanted this game to sport competitive PvP then they would actually have real plans and far more communication with the PvP community.

They must be getting a ton of money from the CM and yet they have made no effort to increase manpower so they can completely turn this game around...Turning the game around means more subs. More subs means even more money than what the CM is going to rack in...Guess they are happy to half *** this game, scrounge up what little money they can, and have an extremely frustrated player base.
No plans for PvP...So, I have no plans to invest anymore money into this game.

I can imagine musco got chastised for making this thread. BW telling the truth about PVP development? and just prior to another PVP orientated MMO being released? I appreciate the honesty but I think they'll come to regret it lol.

Course he did.

At least the fellow is honest about basically middle fingering the whole PvP community. Pretty much all you can be, lying would only cause even more uproar and people renouncing the game.

While it is somewhat "comforting" to have direct answers which is super rare for the PvP forums if they never wrote this post I would still have a sub.

I guess so.

This is probably why they should've just kept quiet about it. As a business, you could at least string the customer along without an answer like they have been doing, rather than this straight "no" post actively inspiring others to quit.

Just some more self righteousness placed in the wrong direction, yet again. Shame that before it was just people who didn't know any better about competition, now the developers are doing it and basically screwing over the supporting community as a result.

Yeah this is why he's prob got a bollocking, But as a business they really should also know that regular pvp players are synonymous with an active subscription. Over two years of neglect, disinformation and contempt erodes those subscriptions

On Dulfy.net, the recap of the Cantina Tour event has this as a note:

Quote:
Something is in the works for World PvP that’s “really cool” related to rewards on a global scale. It won’t be anything like Ilum though..
Which is in direct contradiction to the "No plans" answer in the OP of this thread. Someone want to explain that?
