When I left the game almost three years ago now there were lots of dexxers in pvp, and many of the most feared pvp'rs on my shard were dexxers. There are still dexxers in pvp, but not very many, and even few of them are in the top tier of pvp'rs. My question is, why is this the case? What has changed in the past three years that has resulted in this? I know from playing my dexxers that it can be virtually impossible to close to make the kill. I don't remember it being this difficult three years ago. I can think of four possible reasons off the top of my head. Are there other reasons I haven't thought of? (And while I am mentioning cheats here, this is not meant to accuse anyone. I'm just trying to figure out what is going on here.) - Everyone's computer is faster and connections are better, making it easier to maintain distance from an attacker. - I am aware that there are scripts which claim to keep a specified distance between the script user and attackers, but I honestly can't think of any situation that I've been in where I have noted anything that looked like scripted behaviour to me, unless the scripts are far more sophisticated than I am guessing they are. - Again I haven't noticed this, but are there cheats that allow you to cast or use your bow and move at the same time? (I'm not talking about moving shot here.) - Some will say speed hacking, but again, I haven't noticed anyone moving any faster than I move, so I'm not inclined to think that this is the issue. My vote is for the first option in the list, and if that is the case, is there anything that the devs can do to make melee a viable choice in pvp again? Is there something I've missed here?
