no, just people leaving who shouldn’t have been there in the first place.
So you mean Alliance shouldn’t be on PvP servers? Cool.
Impressive amount of wpvp excited to see ther next 3 weeks
That’s far too logical of a sarcastic response but you’ll just get troll after troll on these forums. They either play horde or like to suffer. My friends and our guild of about 70 are waiting to see if bgs fix it (we play on a very large server) but If it still is unplayable outside of instances I believe most of us will be done (me and the fiancée for sure).
The real problem is the sheer size of the servers now. The world isn’t big enough for this many players on each side. It’s crazy how ANYWHERE I go there’s horde ganking the town/ flypoint. And i really mean anywhere.
I have a 58 alliance toon… I second this lol. Should’ve been 60 but a lot of people just can’t quest, and nobody wants to go to an instance bc of the sheer ganking/time it takes to get there… luckily I also have 60 horde and this guy
The only plan they could have that would have any success would be to add guards the strength of silithus guards or stronger everywhere, in large numbers. That way gankers could still gank but they’d eat a repair bill doing it.
Much more likely they would do something like that because there is no way they would actually make the smart choice and put server caps back down to vanilla levels.
Yeah… I can’t see them making adjustments to server cap, sadly. I think it wouldn’t have been so bad if they were stricter of faction balance… at least give the minority faction a chance to fight back.
Well, the original design for Classic revolved around a massive decrease in subs after the first “rose-colored goggles” period of launch.
So I don’t understand why people think Blizzard is/should do something besides bump up the release date of BGs to mitigate the effects of P2. This is what they planned for.
BTW, they are actually advertising Classic currently. I’ve seen a couple of ads in non-gaming-related places, such as online news magazines.
I think its great, I only wish they delayed it a couple weeks… Some servers are over populated but for the most part having honor is great. Hopefully I can hit 60 in the next week.
so you want the game to die?
must be a private server player - this mentality is toxic for the health of the game.
It cracks me up how people are looking for a response from blizz saying something like “oh we are soo sorry” when traditionally this is the mentality they have had towards pvp on a pvp server (which I 00% agree with btw)
Here have some reading material from a Blizz community manager during the panda expansion
This is going to sound weird, and while I do empathize with the frustration that’s being expressed in this thread, this conversation still warms the cockles of my black little heart.
Why? Because for too long there was very little distinction between playing on a PvE realm and playing on a PvP realm. We had inadvertently created a situation where there was little risk when leveling in the world on a PvP realm. The experiences were, for all practical purposes, virtually identical, but that wasn’t what we had in mind.
Life on a PvP realm can be nasty, brutish and short. Justice is in very short supply. Every action you take in the world carries with it an added level of risk, from questing, to hunting down profession materials, to simply traveling from place to place. You can be attacked at any time, sometimes by an overwhelming force. Of course, the shoe can also be on the other foot, and you’ll be able to turn the tables on your attacker, or find clever ways to delay them or escape from them. Some will become roaming slayers, seeking out enemies to destroy.
In short, the experience on a PvP server is different. We want it to be different, and that includes everything from honorable conflict on the field of battle to horribly despicable ganking. It’s all part of the fabric that makes a PvP server what it is .
Let the blood be spilled ."
PvP server = PvP, PvE server = PvE
Man is everyone drinking lead water these days? How can you be so stupid?
If you’re going to cry about pvp, change servers
BA bye retail tourist. #NOCHANGES
Id just like to thank you for fishing up this post. Ill be sure to quote it in the very near future.
where are you going? did the game die off already? huh?
I am not going anywhere, that was in response to the dude saying that it is losing subs because of phase 2…but I guess reading the hole thing to get the context of it all is a bit to hard.
Actually that existed in classic. They are called normal servers. You turn war mode on by typing /pvp and then you turn it off in a friendly area by typing the same.
Blizzard took away choice in BFA with war mode as there are no longer pvp servers where everyone is force flagged on contested areas.
So the OP is welcome to roll on a normal server (that is Blizzards term for a PVE server) and then he can opt in and out of pvp.
Everyone including the mice in their pockets knew there would be a large number of players leaving after a couple months. The entire point of the pop levels as they are is in light of that.
If players don’t want to play, that is going to expectations. Changing classic to artificially retain those players would be an extreme blow to the entire point of the project.
There are no downsides to a significant decreasing of subscriptions? Hmmm…
There is nothing to “fix” about the outrage.
This is how vanilla was, except this time around players are a lot smarter about how it works and no-life more so Blizz is accelerating the release schedule.
