i mean people could just agree to play on characters with a limited AA pool for pvp, especially considering there are only like 20 pvpers left in the game. you’re never going to get funcom involvement in this stuff. then again, the community would rather spend most of its time with their finger up their ■■■ farming noobs than do something fun. rather than adapt and become better players, people just want to feel superior
the sad truth is that there’s aboslutely nothing fun about playing low AA characters against vets, because the bonuses all stack up to form some very lucrative stat disparities.
the other sad truth is that deep down, most vets (even those that advocate AA equality) want that advantage. its why you see people only play maxed out characters, refuse to play in t1, and then even in t1 only play their full AA characters.
you can see this same behavior previously in fury with lame crap like the grey lotus flowers, fu dog speed buff pet, pict form morphs, astrolabes, khitai blessings etc. you only stand to lose players over this crap, because a large portion of us dont want to farm pve to be competitive in pvp. when it becomes a requirement, you lose players. it happened with gem days, 1.05, shrines of bori, khitai, t5 then t6 and raidfinder, and now with kuthchemes weapons on casters giving more ridiculous stats. nothing is forcing players to use these, but as soon as one person gets an advantage, suddenly pvpers are questing in khitai for a dumb flower that gives them weapon damage on a 2 minute cooldown because they’d rather use a crutch rather than elevate their own gameplay.
if people really wanted this equality then maybe they shouldn’t be the ones to pay hundreds of dollars to have every advantage they can possibly muster? perhaps people should lead by example, instead of propagating the necessity for maxed out characters in all pvp environments. these people claim to want an even playing ground but have to be reminded to actually keep things fair, to not pop flowers in matches, to actually drop guild so that they dont have extra invulnerabilities, to actually attack their threatening guildmates and friends, to not use t6 in pug minigames.
this is all a big hypocritical self righteous circle jerking sham. you all want equality? prove it. everyone in this thread has characters that aren’t totally maxed and armed to the teeth, but don’t get touched in favor of characters that suddenly appear fully geared and AA’d. what’s stopping you from using the other characters? that would probably keep things more fun for new players.
