The game itself lists this as a scenario, it’s not PVP as we know it be.
And i certainly wouldn’t class it as such.
I regret myself even believing at one point the line “it’s all we have so we might as well make use of it”
There are three perfectly good zones to use and should have been implemented a long time ago IMO.
which i still hold true to - to this day.
There is no objective except to be last person standing and avoid elements, there is no way to target a person to Player vs Player if you wanted strategy to achieve an objective, such as capture, hold and defend based on your faction. Take out the healer, take out the dps, capture a facility and hold it as your own or capture the relics and defend or even hold the centre of stonehenge for as long as possible etc - That is PVP we are used to in SW.
Not the skirmish mess that is Shambala.
You are right, it’s not perfect, not by a long shot. But they didn’t even put in one PVP zone for us to see how we faired.
Despite the PVP thread (both of them) being the top thread out of ALL threads in the forum when it comes to any type of discussion on the game.
This latest attempt to do “something” with PVP by the Rosenbrawl - mission - (irks me to say that) and the reduction in the Shambala required numbers to pop it, show where this is heading. It is terribly sad. We learned this lesson from TSW when they added PVE missions to fusang.
It comes to no good for the PVP community.
And i have actual evidence of how bad that became for the PVP community.
As for MoM - We may not have any tie in whatsoever, we may never have any item or linkage between the two, but the focus and the viewpoint from players is that this is spelling an untimely end - and with the radio silence - again - being practically deafening, leaves sour tastes (or salty) in the mouths of those who wait. For Something, anything - that continues on the great story of SWL within the SWL game itself and not anything outside of it.
The viewpoint for some it seems is that this is the new content link to SWL from it’s SW IP.
We will see.
In the meantime, this got posted by someone yesterday in game.
