I have organized, somewhat, last Saturday's Town Hall and will bring subjects here for further discussion. As the players Saturday learned, the devs want to know our thoughts and wishes. So please feel free to contribute! PVP Dreadz LOCAL a pvp map would be nice but I think content and getting more spawn points on the maps would be more priority Auriel LOCAL are we talking open world PvP or say a Capture the Flag map? Admin LOCAL yeah we have two new overland maps in the works, but I still want to get the existing maps more dense with content first Gremror LOCAL There's a blog post about PvP dreadz nimor LOCAL mm open world pvp need a real world low system preety hard to do i think nimor LOCAL but i think we all will like a pvp map Auriel LOCAL I like the idea of team pvp game maps, but I really don't know much about it Dreadz LOCAL they are fun if the maps are small Admin LOCAL it's really not set up to do big scale PvP, and I fear it will attract a different kind of player than a more social-oriented PvE grouping game. so I'm not too excited about open world pvp, though if we get enough players to do multiple server shards, that gets more interesting Dreadz LOCAL large pvp maps people get tired of running around easily Gremror LOCAL Yeah, I'm with the admin on PvP tbh Auriel LOCAL then there is the question of looting and griefing.. Dreadz LOCAL I would say we need more mob spawnsI would say we need more mob spawns nimor LOCAL mm what about a collosoum ? Auriel LOCAL but I do like team Pvp and also conflictive RP nimor LOCAL like a doul system Holya LOCAL I've not hooowl for long, but I feel as though the most fitting kind of pvp for a game like this would be a bountry hunter/hide and seek map?I've not played for long, but I feel as though the most fitting kind of pvp for a game like this would be a bountry hunter/hide and seek map? Holya LOCAL like, a relatively large map, with valuables of some kind for players to gather gr some waylike, a relatively large map, with valuables of some kind for players to gather in some way Holya LOCAL and other players would have an insentive to howl the, for loot, or perhaps the pvp zone could be owned by an NPC who'd pay bounty hunters to get rid of poachers etcand other players would have an insentive to kill the, for loot, or perhaps the pvp zone could be owned by an NPC who'd pay bounty hunters to get rid of poachers etc DreadzLOCALyup they were awsome 14 Jun 2014 15:42:28DreadzLOCALI would agree nimor 14 Jun 2014 15:42:37DreadzLOCALpvp has a huge calling 14 Jun 2014 15:42:42nimorLOCALu need to have some pvp arena before the KS i think this will get it polish and will attract allot of ppl 14 Jun 2014 15:42:57AviticusLOCALYea Nimor, most of my guild members are all PvP lovers. They are always asking, "You guys add arenas yet? Or open PvP zones?" 14 Jun 2014 15:42:59AviticusLOCALHaha 14 Jun 2014 15:43:16AdminLOCALthe trouble with that is redoing all the pet ai stuff 14 Jun 2014 15:43:26AurielLOCALso the want list is: housing, pvp, and.... 14 Jun 2014 15:43:33DreadzLOCALpack dolls 14 Jun 2014 15:43:36AdminLOCALso that they can figure out who to help and who to attack in pvp zones 14 Jun 2014 15:43:41GremrorLOCALAre gonna have permanent pets?

I remember City of Heroes had completely different stats while in PvP. 14 Jun 2014 15:44:03DreadzLOCALyes I love the death system here 14 Jun 2014 15:44:18AdminLOCALgremror: Animal Taming will let you tame pets and raise them, feed them, etc. Animal Handling will let you bring them with you into dungeons as a combat skill 14 Jun 2014 15:44:26DreadzLOCALpeeps would be more willing to pvp cause nothing to loose 14 Jun 2014 15:44:30GremrorLOCALAh, okay, thanks 14 Jun 2014 15:44:51GremrorLOCALThe death system here makes me eat poison when I see it... for expereicne & lolz.

Or capture the Flag 14 Jun 2014 15:46:40AdminLOCALpets just explode in the arena maybe 14 Jun 2014 15:46:41AviticusLOCALAhh ok you meant temporarily. 14 Jun 2014 15:46:53nimorLOCALits still alpah u can do it 14 Jun 2014 15:47:02AviticusLOCALYea Auriel, I was thinking the same. 14 Jun 2014 15:47:12AurielLOCALteam games 14 Jun 2014 15:47:25AurielLOCALor like Arathi in WoW 14 Jun 2014 15:47:25GremrorLOCALYeah, capture the flag is always fun 14 Jun 2014 15:47:37DreadzLOCALEric do you still have the old serbule map? you could instance to it and see how it goes 14 Jun 2014 15:47:39AurielLOCALwhere you have a series of objectives 14 Jun 2014 15:47:40AviticusLOCALIn City of Heroes, they started with just Arenas of 1 vs 1, which really got hostile with the initial unbalanced nature of the power sets. 14 Jun 2014 15:48:27AdminLOCALI'm not sure the old map will load anymore, but we could repurpose the old Kur map 14 Jun 2014 15:48:32AviticusLOCALIt was a pretty grim thing, like Eric said, I remember a lot of newbs jumping into that thinking it would be fun and then leaving the game after dealing with the frustration of defeat. AdminLOCALthe giant flat plane full of ice and deadly snow 14 Jun 2014 15:48:37nimorLOCALwell u can let ppl in only after endurance lvl 25 14 Jun 2014 15:48:51nimorLOCALor 50 14 Jun 2014 15:49:01nimorLOCALthat will give a goal for ppl 14 Jun 2014 15:49:10AdminLOCALyeah I would want to lock the arena so newbies couldnt go in. too frustrating 14 Jun 2014 15:49:12nimorLOCALand keep powers at cheack 14 Jun 2014 15:49:12AurielLOCALanother thing to work for 14 Jun 2014 15:49:22AviticusLOCALI could build some kind of arena 14 Jun 2014 15:49:41AviticusLOCALLike a gladiator type thing. 14 Jun 2014 15:49:49GremrorLOCALEnudrance 50 would be better than 25 14 Jun 2014 15:49:50DreadzLOCALyea that would be good 14 Jun 2014 15:49:55seasLOCALsorry afk'd for a while, pvp is a big one for me as well. i like the idea of instanceing up old zones and using em for that 14 Jun 2014 15:50:00AdminLOCALAviticus: maybe a chunk of the desert map, so players wouldnt get to it unti lthey were pretty advanced anyway 14 Jun 2014 15:50:00GremrorLOCALAs a requirement 14 Jun 2014 15:50:25AviticusLOCALAhh yea that works Eric. 14 Jun 2014 15:50:32AurielLOCALthats an idea, locate it in a high level area 14 Jun 2014 15:50:49AurielLOCALcan you code an area within a map differently? 14 Jun 2014 15:50:50AviticusLOCALAs it is now, it's a pretty savage looking place. It'd make for a great place to have an arena. 14 Jun 2014 15:51:07AurielLOCALto allow pvp? 14 Jun 2014 15:51:41AviticusLOCALThat's how Blade and Soul doesn't arenas, it's pretty cool. 14 Jun 2014 15:51:43AdminLOCALeventually, yeah. hmm might be that in the short term that's too hard, and just using an old map might work better. will have to ponder that a little 14 Jun 2014 15:51:59AviticusLOCALCould probably use our hotspot sysem. 14 Jun 2014 15:52:04AviticusLOCAL*system 14 Jun 2014 15:52:27DreadzLOCALyou could make a pvp skill and use the golem makin guy here in serbule to level that skill up so a player could get into the pvp area 14 Jun 2014 15:52:31AdminLOCALyeah it could. though it will have weird side effects. like somebody just flying by overhead and then suddenly they're in the pvp zone, get shot down by fireballs 14 Jun 2014 15:52:58DreadzLOCALthat way people would have to deliberly get access to that map 14 Jun 2014 15:53:16AviticusLOCALIn Blade and Soul, when you step into an arena or pvp area in the map it just says you're open for PvP, but they also let you run out instantly which is kinda annoying if you're playing someone and you are winning. They can just run outside the area. 14 Jun 2014 15:53:18AdminLOCALI like that for a future plan 14 Jun 2014 15:53:57AviticusLOCALYea keep forgetting you added flight to Gorgon. 14 Jun 2014 15:53:58AdminLOCALright now there wouldnt be enough players to support multiple arenas, so high level players and lowbies would be in the same place. which sucks. So I think it would have to be a high-level req to get in, for kickstarter 14 Jun 2014 15:54:15DreadzLOCALI agree 14 Jun 2014 15:54:22GremrorLOCALYeah 14 Jun 2014 15:54:23AurielLOCALme too 14 Jun 2014 15:54:36DreadzLOCALshould have to have a combat skill of 50 to enter 14 Jun 2014 15:54:36AurielLOCALits there, but you have to work to get to try it 14 Jun 2014 15:54:36AviticusLOCALYea, don't want to kill the newb experience. 14 Jun 2014 15:54:47AurielLOCALand exploration 14 Jun 2014 15:54:53seasLOCALadded flight? can you fly in any other manner than word of power? 14 Jun 2014 15:55:15AdminLOCALnot yet. there will be other ways soon-ish 14 Jun 2014 15:55:27AdminLOCALthe druid can take raven form 14 Jun 2014 15:55:30AurielLOCALI want wings 14 Jun 2014 15:55:44AdminLOCALand fairies can limited-fly 14 Jun 2014 15:55:47AurielLOCALoh thatll work 14 Jun 2014 15:55:55nimorLOCALon the flaying thing items droped in the sky dont fall 14 Jun 2014 15:55:57AviticusLOCALThe fae should be in soon too right Eric?
