Would love to see a link where they said Ilum PvP was overhauled, because i certainly missed that part. I caught the Gabe interview, and he never mentioned that there.

I am not holding my greath that BW will do something about giving people a half decent reason to be involved in any form of Open World pvp.

They need a new engine before they can even get this type of pvp going on ilum again because ilum used to clog up so bad due to the bad game engine.

Well your first problem OP is you believe what they say. Fact of the matter is if you go back and read all the developer claims and promises more then 2/3 of the time it either never happened or was obviously rushed and was critiqued hard by the player base. I wouldn't be surprised it they forget all about Ilum it would not be the first time.

I barely take them at their word when i have proof, nevermind if i don't..

You'll forgive me if i'm just not buying it?

All i have is they are targetting January for a "light-hearted anniversary" event on Ilum which may bring some PvP. Hardly a reworking of any type of RvR. I really wish it were otherwise however.

The engine is still not good enough to support a large group of players in one area. The first day of 1.6 there was about 20 of us in one big battle and we all had problems with lag and the game generally just running slow.

I would love to see some brilliant objective based Wpvp but with the current engine it wont happen.

if they ever figure out how to fix the lag when more than 30 players are in an area or fighting at once that would help bigtime. That and if they would remove the 1 shot cannons and go back to original ilum where you could actually invade the other factions base. I still remember the mass quitting that occurred after they made invading bases offlimits its like *** I thought this was pvp?!?!
