For months now I have been playing pvp on server TOFN - and it is alarmingly apparent that there is a massize sway in terms of domination in favour of rep. I have raised this point before and its been shrugged off, but this problem is a very real problem and needs to be addressed. Right now its grown to an outbreak of infectious frustration throughout the server, so much so that EMP's are regularly complaining about it in general chat. People are giving up almost the instant fights start as reps take dominance almost the instance the fight starts. This is not just somehing that happens once or twice a night or week. This is every night! - I have logged in for the last 2 months every night and played about 15 matches, and im very lucky to win 1 in 10 - thats 60 nights 600 matches and 60 wins in 600 if that! -
People can argue, its skill etc etc, and if thats the case then rep have all the skill and emp have none because the reality is were slaughterd every single night. I was talking to a freind on the rep and naturally they say its great he says he wins 9/10 matches, and hes no more skilled then I am. The problem is further compounded when rep due to their relentless victorys gear up faster which further amplifys the issue. Within a minute or two of playing any wz, its not long before Emps are arguing amongst themselves as rep usher in their overwhelming domminance to yet another humiliating defeat. Yeah their are the very odd ocasions where by luck emp side are blessed with a very strong team selection and we might give em a run for their money but my god, its an extreme effort and even if a win comes, its one born of sweat and tears a fight to the end, in which 20 defeats will follow suit, and so the vicious circle continues.
I know people will argue there no problem on their servers and even the odd few from TOFN, who will be oblivious, but im talking level 50 solo PVP wz, any night you want logging 8/9pm and play 15 odd matches and tell me you dont feel the unbalance.
I logging and I hear people venting their frustration, and the gloom on the faces of people before the wz starts with comments like - "SSDD" and another slaughter for the EMP - Players are so fedup they just stop and dont even contribute because it is pointless. 2/3 players a match quit in protest, and the emps fight on to imminant doom. I admire emps fighting spirit i truly do, but it never changes the outcome.
I have no idea how this unbalance has come about, only that when people choose dark side they think DPS DPS, and when people choose REP LIGHT they think heal heal, and so theres your inbalance. Either that or theres some kinda appeal to rep side for better skilled players, but what ever the reason there is a very real issue, and right now its soo much so it actually puts me off logging, and im sure im not the only one. This is a critical time for the game where subs and numbers matter, and right now I see this as a big problem. Players should feel excited to log on, get home and play, right now im thinking god not another night of slaughter and frustration ill give it a miss. I find myself avioding pvp! A game should not make players feel this way in my view.
If your not convinced then simple loging and play TOFN lvl 50 pvp solo que. I would simply not bring this issue up if I did not feel it was the biggest growing concern I have about this game.
Sorry for the wall of words but sense my frustration....
