Or just piss poor game engine network coding that doesn't update the server on where a player actually is. Which seems to be happening more lately.

Anyway, well played.

Thanks to everyone who has used my Refer a Friend link over the years, may the force be with you.

There is also a post on reddit now where a guy made a video about "gear doesnt matter". Funny is he played imp side ofc against a team of noob/rpers

what is this trend surfacing now about people wanting to prove that you dont need gear for PVP?? Its nonsence! Those are just lucky matches where people dont get serious oposition.

I did a response post a couple of pages ago on how we tend to perceive the world, I'm sure there's pvpers that are skilled enough and in an knowingly environment can put out numbers that are considered brilliant. BUT. the thing is that every average Joe does get better in an knowingly environment, AND those guy's that, hopefully not even using 3d party ToS violating hardware aka Macros, are very few. To compare and demand that every average Joe should put out the same as those few players are not only Silly but also plain ignorant. Anyone who's ever leveled through low- and midbies know that gear matters, and that purple is better than green, what happened now to pvp is that top teir pvp is a continuation of low- and midbie pvp, where in fact gear matters for thos who not belongs to the top 1%.

Now the thread is finally getting somewhere.

Mr. SJW states that if my mommy had loved me more, I'd have more empathy for those that suck at PvP and would have thought more about their feelings before making this thread.


Well, jokes on you, I had two dads and they loved me a minimum of 2 times per week, again, without gear on.

I remember the times when they raised level and i had my full Brutalizer gear and went into midbies. I was really ripping ppl apart in midbies due to that.

Anyway what I wanted to say I leveled a toon to 70 last week and did a little PVP while at it. It was A BLAST!! I mean I was king of the hill, one eyed man among the blind, it was simply incredible. Most matches I was immortal etc, I mean it was sooo fun to see so many noob players there. I take back everything I said about Icykill playing midbdies

But in those wzs u could clearly see how gear does not matter (i had the 208 initial blues from 65 token toon) but skill was very important.
