That would actually help alot with the learning curve and the participants would gain some experience in dealing with certain classes, even prepare build varieties and combo setups to test them out.
Its still possible via the Arena or the Fury PvP app but on Crom, you have to be on a guild with veterans with all classes and plan it.
But most guilds don’t have every single class that does real competitive PvP and it would be far better being able to select some options on an application in which you can queue up and according to your percentage of your stat ratings you are automatically put into a certain Tier.
Thus even vets could choose the toughest challenge giving new life into dueling.
Creating an achievement system around it to gain access into higher Tiers would be also very good and that could be applied into minigames in general because it might help with the learning by fighting a veteran (unless you get one shotted) but a veteran will not enjoy real competition against someone who is not a challenge for him.
PvP in this game can become very active, especially for newcomers who will start doing the forementioned, combine it with PvP event and even Bori when they are relaxing to get the trophies for usefull potions and later T3 items and ‘‘Climb the achievement system & PvP competition Tiers’’
The population is low because there is a lack of such a system, as a result everyone is afraid and finds the current situation frustrating and not rewarding to ‘‘Climb a mountain of accomplishment’’ thus he will never strive to improve his combo forms, his keybind setups, his hardware setup, his AA/ Build and gear setup to fill the gaps and invest to PvP combat prowess as he does with PvE content.
Most players may roll a new character after 80 instead of mastering one though. But that’s their choice and what they enjoy.
