If you’ve been on the forums as long as I have or longer, you know that “PVP is dying” is a refrain almost as popular as “Conan Exiles is dying”.
Now that we have the new rules, we can hope that cheating will eventually be brought under control, so that’s one “death threat to PVP” removed. Despite that, I’m under impression that most PVP players on these forums are unhappy with the state of the game. I’ve complaints about all sorts of stuff: it’s too easy to raid, it’s too hard to raid, thralls are too strong, thralls are too weak, “new roll” is awesome, “new roll” is the worst, etc.
Which brings me to my question: what should be done to make PVP fun?
I don’t play PVP, so I can’t hope to answer that question myself. The best I could do is say what’s keeping me from even trying PVP, but that’s a different can of worms. What I really want to know is whether there’s any way experienced PVP players could reach some kind of a consensus about the most glaring problems with PVP and how they might be rectified.
Now, I’m not a forum moderator, so I can’t really set and enforce any rules, but my honest hope is that we can try to have a civil and rational discussion. It would be awesome if we could:
- avoid name-calling and ad hominems in general
- address people’s arguments (and flaws in them) politely
- stay out of the discussion if not interested
