It was a very good post and highlighted the need for endgame and current gear path options.
I think the “ye olde way” of gaining MoPs/BB for upgrade kits via PVP for us is often mis-interpreted as a need to have something similar in the way of MoF’s as reward. We all know that MoF’s now come from the daily challenges and any extra from sales on the AH - Which is completely fine in my view.
I have no need nor want to ask for any to be added to any missions - be it PVE or PVP.
Personally i feel, that would throw the whole balance of each communities chosen style of play into a whole mess of “you are getting more than me” - and that should not be the case - it would be unfair.
Nobody wants that.
Nobody wants PVP to be made mandatory nor should it be the sole way to gain something that can not be gained elsewhere (except for PVP outfits & PVP rankings perhaps).
I also wouldn’t ask for anything that devoted a length of time that would be to the determent of other areas of the game. Which is why i won’t ask for a revamp to any of the previous PVP zones, with new maps or new missions or objectives - they were perfectly fine as they were before and completely viable as a path to upgrade with the old system of tokens - and can be perfectly viable here in SWL also.
I don’t want other things in SWL to suffer because of anything else.
The token system we had before still exists - albeit in a different form. We get the green bags with those items - that can drop extraordinary items also, from all missions and it’s our choice what we do with them. Shard them, sell them for mofs or use them as fodder to upgrade. That is often overlooked i feel. The only place you get anything extra is in Tokyo with keys and New Dawn with Dawns favour. (i may have missed another little added extra im not certain) - but i don’t feel the need to ask for signets, nor anything else to be added to the loot pools of any of the rewards and certainly not any agents. I am used to the reward system that is here in SWL and use it how i see fit for whatever purpose i need them for.
If i need shards - i sell to vendors. If i need Mofs i’ll sell on the AH - if i need to glyph i will do scens - even the lower ones are totally fine, doing that with a friend helps (i wish it had a group option or even any number up to 5) The dungeons offer the best form of distills for weapons and tali upgrades and there are many choices available really.
But for PVPers their best route of play would be for PVP to be active and a viable choice - which is what i think was the intention behind the OP.
I do think i know where and how the topic was closed. I won’t mention it since i’m trying to be careful myself here. My own response may have contributed somewhat and i apologise for that. I perhaps should have just directed the OP to here and encouraged him to post a suggestion in the relevant threads.
however - i am not entirely certain as to why it was closed so soon as i feel it was neither derailed nor was it offensive in any way. I did speak with the person on discord and we cleared up a word that might have been, on their end, misinterpreted and combined with differing opinions and language - the issue must have felt exasperated and of course the reason for it’s closure could have been to avoid going over old ground or to avoid a possible back n forth of unnecessary opinions. The best possible thing to do would have been to have been merged with this topic.
(i am in no way questioning the reason nor the moderators reason for closing it - just passing a comment)
But my intentions were of a genuine nature and come from the heart as anyone knows of me, that PVP for SWL is needed and we all know how much it’s needed in terms of good, viable gearing paths and enjoyment as a whole - for what we know is a much larger portion, than previously led to believe, community.
I hope this helps clarify and i am available in game to discuss further my thoughts on that
The OP was right
We need the never ending and ever changing PVP as a choice to upgrade by that solely as our chosen style of play.
You can do this through PVE and Dungeons already and is it’s current, normal, regular route.
It should be able to be done through PVP also
(NOTICE - to minimise risk of this thread being closed: I offer any forum moderator to msg me before they choose to close it with an option for me to edit anything they possibly deem unfit for posting and i will do gladly and accordingly - so that it may stay open)
I do think i’ve been as careful as i can be here. Without knowing what is and isn’t acceptable to discuss i am at a loss to be even able to discuss. If this makes sense.
