The future of PvP in SWL

There were some names there asking for PvP that I honestly didn’t expect.

I think a lot of people just finally recognized, that there are to less things to do besides questing and running the same dungeons over and over again.

PvP was a blast in TSW, it kept me logging in long after I maxed out my gear (and stopped caring about augments). Dungeons were the same old thing time after time, after you max out your gear you get desperate and start doing silly self-imposed challenges until you just cant stand doing them anymore. PvP was always exciting cause of the human element. Right now I dont have much reason to log in every day, PvP would go a long way towards that and making me stick around long term.


On a SWL Hiatus at the moment, would definetly come back (and spend Money on the game :hint:) if there would be more Battlegrounds and/or a Permanent BG like Fusang. Yes that was the reason i left for other games, Shambala just does not cut it for me.


Nice to see the return of one of TSW’s PVP great veteran players , welcome back Sippin, i do hope it turns into a “proper” comeback :wink:

Wanna make money ? Make a battle royale in SWL.
This is quarter of a joke.

Lat day of the requests so if you haven’t mentioned PVP yet - get in there now!!
I’ve already done a count and as it stands PVP is 2nd in demand as it were. But counting it with and as group content - collectively - group content is top.


Yep that was an amazing summary. Thanks for taking the time to put that together.


I’d like to bring this up here before creating a new thread just to get some feedback and possibly some help organizing/supervising before making anything official.

So that being said who here is interested in a Shambala event? I’m not doing this to prove anything to Funcom because quite frankly if there recent question to the community wasn’t evidence enough that pvp is something players want then this won’t end up making the point any more clear.

My idea involves collecting screenshots of the winning team for each match and entering those names into a online name raffle and drawing x number of names after the event based on available prizes to be won. Basic requirements for name entry are to be on the winning team and to have shown some degree of participation in the match (to be decided on whether that will be a cumulative point total or something of that nature) your name can be entered multiple times based on how many winning teams you are on during the event and prizes will be item only traded in person likely the following day after everything is finalized.

I’m open to suggestions to make things more interesting but at the same time simplicity is sometimes a virtue in these types of player run events. As I may not be in every match I’m open to having others screenshot and send results via email or if someone knows a cleaner and simpler way to collect the data I’m all ears.

As for prizes I have many things a few anima touched weapons in my bank a mark of the starspawn 100 Agartha caches and some heavy caliber pistols of havoc mk3 all of which I’m happy to add to a prize pool seeing as how it may turn into a monthly event if it’s successful I may choose to only donate 2-3 valuable items and 50 or so Agartha caches this time round but that is something that will be finalized and made clear in an official post.

As for a date maybe as early as this weekend if the details can get hammered out. At the latest next weekend. Also I would like it to be a fairly lengthy event to account for multiple time zones.


I’ve been thinking about how to reward Shamballers too… raffle for the winning team sounds as good as any other. Maybe a minor one after each match?

Weekends for sure. I think I’ve still got a Fiery Eyes, White to toss into the pool myself.

I like that! Winning teams names enter a minor raffle after each match might be An Agartha cacheor something of that nature. Then I can pool all the names together for Bigger rewards after the event is over

What if I push them off a cliff? That’s still PvP to me…

Maybe i´ll have a look but i can´t promise anything :wink:

Why not Shambala Event. Its something to do :slight_smile:

Will post something official after work as a new post here and on Reddit. Will probably be a test run this weekend to see how it goes.

Count me in :smiley:

You know, I’m not sure I’ve ever actually gotten a Shambala queue to pop.

No matter how long I wait during dailies, or more likely I end up queuing for something else at the same time, and it just never happens. (It might have happened like once on launch day, but I guess everyone figured the rewards are worthless).

I’d really like there to be real PvP in this game. I wasn’t a huge fan of TSW PvP maps or how crazy imbalanced that game was, but you can’t beat something with nothing. It’s really weird that the re-launch still has a lot less content than the original in a lot of meaningful ways (except of course for New Dawn).

Yeah, especially since devs did not convey this… “shared-world solo-game in MMO clothes”… would be the route taken. I heard backburner and I heard “soon TM,” but nobody said anything like, “well, maybe not after all,” which WOULD have been the decent and honest thing to say.

Kinda thinking Funcom would like to do away with PvP entirely, but through atrophy and apathy rather than any actual action. (Which, while crappy, would still be better than this state of noncommittal limbo, imho.)

I think at this point I’m just getting some personal level of enjoyment out of keeping PvP a popular topic just because I know how much it probably gets under there skin lol.


I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Shambala PVP event today - A huge thanks to @Drenneth in his efforts of bringing PVP to the forefront of the forum. It’s mere mention, has resulted in it being the single most talked about topic on the forum since it’s creation and another huge thanks again for pulling off the event created.

My enjoyment came from the fact we were all together - enjoying PVP together, like we did before.
I will post a full review on the respective thread with my “Golden thoughts”.
