The future of PvP in SWL



“No Sleep For The WIcked”

Be sure to check the details of today’s Shambala Event ROUND 3!!



Is TSW still in use? Does it still have players doing pvp? Probably not, right? I really miss TSW. The skill wheel, fusang, ED, the pvp community and everything else the game had. SWL seems lacking in many departments and turned into a boring grind. Also sucks losing all progress and having to restart. Got bored by the time I reached 2nd egypt. If I had pvp it might be nicer but like this I really have no incentive to play the game at the moment. I’ll be damned if I start doing dungeons/lairs/raids. Sad.


We did Stonehenge yesterday. It wasn’t an event.


But was that a rare thing? Like 1 stonehenge a day? Week? How long did you wait in queue? And what about fusang?


Unless you or someone else is hyping people to do something there I wouldn’t expect much anymore.


That is really the hope right now. Will it ever be the same as what we had in TSW? Probably not. But SWL still maintains the same great community and that’s enough for me to stick around and wait. The fact that TSW isn’t open to new players (in any simple form) has always been the thing that shut the doors for me. I don’t wish to spend my time there watching what few remain slowly dwindle away.


Why not add that as a Patron reward? It takes nothing away from those that already have the game, and might get those that would like to experience the PvP or game in it’s original form a chance to try it. TSW is being maintained and it’s just sitting there. Why not potentially make a few bucks off it? Sony/Daybreak has for years had an all access pass to their games - it’s down to four now - but if you play more than one, it’s a nice getting the sub perks. I never understood why FC hasn’t done that for it’s older titles that they’re still maintaining.

Sorry that digressed a bit from the PvP thread. Weekends haven’t been working this past month, but glad to see the events you started doing so well Drenneth!


I have always gotten the odd feeling that this game has a larger weekday population though I’ve not looked at the numbers closely. That being said I’ll decide to perhap run the event on a Friday next time? Will decide this weekend. Also that’s a brilliant idea you have there! I always thought ah Funcom doesn’t want to make the old game available cause less people will sub in the new one. But if it were a patron reward that’s a win win situation.


It’s sad that i tried to scroll the leaderboard down to see the other teams - dammit!


When **** gets real serious!


Who ever said you cant look good while destroying your enemies?


Sometimes you just need to embrace your enemies while the storm passes by.


“The Face Off”


When you thought you could just stomach that fireball…


Who said bunnies can’t jump?


In case anybody wondered about it:

Haven´t logged in the game for Weeks/Months(?).
At the moment I completely lost interest in the game and I will pobably only return for fresh Story-content and/or massive changes about PVP (New Modes/Maps, wich means it has to be live/ingame. Promises etc. won´t keep me playing).

Kudos to Drenneth and everyone else who tries to make the best out of shambala (including Funcom sponsoring it) but i just don´t feel like playing it.
I will keep watching the forums and how things evolve.
Have fun!


Glad to here your still checking in. One thing for me is just staying in touch with the community. I don’t really have the time to invest (like I’d want to) in another MMO. I’m kinda all or nothing in that regard. But if **** hits the fan and I’m forced to move on one day I can hope that many of the friends I’ve met over the last 5 years I’ll come across again. Fingers crossed there will be some good changes down the road and perhaps if you have the time you’ll be able to pop in for the anniversary.


I agree to the wish for some good changes!
Regarding the anniversary: I currently have the game deinstalled and it´s unlikely that i will reinstall it for that purpose.
But I will reinstall it instantly when content arrives, wich i really wanna play :wink:

SHAMBALA *MEGAversary Edition* Summary and Prize List

BUMPity Bump Bump Bump


Its a shame the post by @bugrasertel got closed, the OP raised some very valid and interesting points concerning PvP in SWL. To quote:

This game needs a ranked faction pvp mode that allows the players to earn ap-sp, anima shards, faction pvp outfits, and marks of favor, in an infinite amount; by just playing and grinding in it, and doing it’s pvp-specific missions.

As long as there is an everlastingly useful and symbolic way at getting whatever we need through participating in pvp matches, the idea of waiting for new contents will be that much bearable.

But we need something to get busy all day, and not worry about a thing at all. That said, the old Fusang and it’s constant mission rewards were abe to provide just that.

Thank you all for reading my post, and i await your replies. Good day!

I think that was a very level headed and non-offensive topic and was unfortunately closed early due to derailment but if anyone would like to discuss without getting to worked up over the matter Id really be interested in hearing ppls opinions on the OP topic since I’m certain it wasnt there topic alone that cause the post to be closed.

Edit: I risk the chance of having this topic closed so please keep it as civil as possible.
