At the risk of sounding ike a broken record myself i really do think it’s time for Funcom to start thinking of addressing the issues with the missing pvp zones & the missing dungeons , Drenneth has stated he is finding it difficult to find things to do in game & there will be others in the same position as he is, yes season 2 is coming & it’s great news for us all , but like it has already been pointed out that particular content has limited replay value this is where group content such as Dungeons & PVP play an important part in keeping the playerbase engaged.
There are two things that need consideration imo progression & repetition, dynamic varied group content is the key to solving the negatives that can arise out of those 2 things, it really is that simple, to quote an old saying “A family that plays together stays together” Now the agent System although a nice addition to the game does not add any kind of group content.
I can’t stress enough how important it is for the survival of the game imo for varied group content to be made more of a priority, i know we all solo play to some extent but i think the general consensus is that group content keeps us all here , we socialise & mix with people in game , i meet new players frequently & quite simply what are we if not a community?
we need a balance for the repetitive parts so by giving wider choice again the reinstatement of that which is missing from the game will help provide that balance. i personally would also like Funcom to consider implementing a group version of the 3 scenarios for the same reasons.
Now on to shamblahblah after everything i have read i now think that some kind of incentive is needed for people to want to spend their time in there the kind of incentive that does not reward you for jumping off the cliff & ending the game though, a small change to the reward for losing a match is needed & maybe a higher reward for the winners. I have also had to rethink my own reasons for not playing the zone & have decided that if i want things to be better i have to at least make some kind of an effort myself to encourage players to play & take part myself. So thats where i am at…
A great big welcome to Verr btw so very good to see you here with us, i know you have strong opinions on the issues we are all talking about as you & i talk about them often haha, much love to you x
