1. the reason pvp is haveing a hard time starting is because you fight and fight and win almost nothing at all. the game has kids in it, and teenagers, they don't want to spend weeks of dedication to earn 1 set peice. the items you can get already are vary good quality. people will argue about the the usefullness of pvp armor in comparison to lega and sprite but the armor is certainly competitive with it's rivals.
to help start pvp and get people in there is give them the feeling that they are able to win something even if they are loseing. i have seen winners (those on the winning team) gain 25 points because a +15-18 managed to kill almost every time (like 70 kills from 1 level 30 ranger in one HFB 21-30 match) leaveing no room for teammates to earn points.
2. true, people need to learn to use their class before they are any good to them selves or the team but unless your willing to spend weeks dieing or spend lots of ap most don't live long enough to learn. i learned most of what i know in HoJ. the battlefields are chaotic and i often don't even know why i'm losing but in HoJ there are no distractions and i learn new things almost every time.
3. have you looked at those +18 fort people? 4.4k defense and 3.6k magic defense on one warrior. he matches my level 50 wizard in magic defense. the only saving grace is they can only use 1 weapon at a time so their damage is weak in comparison to all 5 set items at +18. people look at the strenght of the fort people and seek that power even if they can't use their class.
despite what you want this thread to do i feel it's the points system not the items available that needs changeing. though i wouldn't mind it if fortifcation items went on the market
Use pvp time to earn more gold and make sprite set maybe wise chose than join in battles where you only lost and earn nothing.
It a "strong eat weak" active so if you want to join buy legacy, Fortification you item to 15 or 18. Or if you don't have much , legacy +9 with +15 or 18 weapon will do (though it useless when you face full +15 or 18 lol).
That's what i learn after join pvp so far.
As long as you have gold , this game's pvp alway easy.
You can't imagine how funny when i have spend time to blow my sprite with love keg , earn treasure Committee rep and collect marterial to make Strength +6 stone , just to reality that you only need alot of gold , buy O-clay and gamble to get +9 Strength stone (._.) i give up half way when i know that you can earn NPC rep by rep stone from M-clay , just buy rep stone from AH and make it .
It strange that you can buy it by gold , not Rep point like pvp set. Lol , just have alot of gold and you need no hard work in PVP. That one element make this game economy fail with mission order make a good gold farm.
You just need to make rep to high enough lv and then spend gold. Lol.
The more i play , more i reality how strange thing are. GF have good system , but IDK why it so mess now .-.-/
