    I just heard the patch removes tamers from PvP ;) :heart:

    Actually, hopefully we're talking about duels...the Test Center clone is stable, and duels were supposed to come next.

    Just the opposite. They are removing PvP completely, since nothing they have tried before has brought people back to fel. They are finally admitting defeat.

    I don't really understand why you PVP kiddies so love to fantasize about destroying the game. What do you think would happen if they did this? If your answer is anything but "game shut down in disgrace weeks later" then you're wrong.

    The game is 13 years old and Trammel has been around for 11 of them. Get over it. The crap you're pining for is some early-years design oversight that even ten-year veterans don't remember.

    I really hope it's something that will finally shatter my resistance to go back to Fel.

    I used to play on Drach (moved there from Pacific the day it was opened to US players) and even after the introduction of Tramm I stay firmly planted in Fel.
    Then after all the friends I made there left I went back to the West coast servers for the better ping (oh god was I sloooowww on Drach) and I became a Trammie.

    Ironically, the only chars of mine that venture into Fel these days are the ones that have no fighting skill what so ever :)

    If they do something to make factions interesting I will gladly donate my warrior and thief to the cause.

    I have no interest in pvp for the sake of pvp but to engage in battle against other players for a cause, for honor... I"M IN :)

    Lol that's my guess too. Something that changes nothing. Just some other feature with it's zerg of new bugs that will almost all be fixed except for the annoying intolerable ones.

    At least stop by and see my shop.

    I can't help thinking that, if they had lumped together a bunch of this crap they've been making for the last six or eight months and called it an expansion, they might have actually gotten me to buy it.

    As it is, I don't need a pet vendor and I don't really PVP, so whatever.

    Actually I heard that this is a publish for the silent majority and they are finally removing those elitist mages that think they are better than everyone else from pvp...

    OK um...my guess:

    They allow faction fighting on every facet. Everyone plays their red factioners less or buys a bunch of forged pardons. Forged pardon prices skyrocket to 10 mil per. Luna becomes the new Fel Yew Gate, the already dead Fel Yew Gate activity becomes completely non-existent. Ohh ohh and a Harrower spawns randomy throughout the day in Luna too, yea yeah but he only gives out pies not stat scrolls.

    Um and stealth archers get an extra 200 skill points because they are completely under powered and need room for anatomy AND resist, not anatomy OR resist.

    I'm gambling that my ninja/stealth/herder/beggar/cook is going to get a major buff and can finally start pwning noobs along with all those stealth archers. I'm thinking of changing his name to Hannibal Lecter with a specialty in liver lightly fried in olive oil...

    Do you mind fixing the new bug on tc1. when you get stun punched or hit with an arrow to para you when the effect wears off you are still stuck and cant move.

    you then basically get killed by everyone and when you are a ghost you still cant move until someone resses you.

    Kinda makes it hard to test out new pvp changes with this going on,

    still no fix to the stun bug on TC1 :thumbdown:

    Shame because basically hardly anyone is testing the pvp changes due to this.
