My name is Zarhym. Hi there.
I know many of you have been feeling neglected as of late and have several concerns with the current state of PvP. To that end, I've punched those who would generally assign me with tasks, kicked them while they were down and shouted, "I'm going to take some friggin' time to talk to the PvP community! Go away! (But please don't let the injuries you've just suffered reflect on my next performance review.)"
So, my schedule's open for a bit. What's up?
Needless to say, the current replies make very interesting reading. There's going to be a look at low level PvP (which will make my 10 year old happy, as his life mostly revolves around sub L30 BG's), there's an assertion that you will be able to use PvP gear to transmogrify (so that's my gear set for the Hunter sorted with pretty much no effort involved, result!) and the chance we may see a LFG system for Rated BG's, which for me would pretty much tick every PvP button I still have waiting. However the biggest issue for me is the state of World PvP, which has pretty much ceased to exist on our PvE server thanks to the focus on people 'living' in one Alliance/Horde town rather than across the World as was previously the case. A /who ironforge last week had four of us there at 11pm. /sadface. Needless to say, this has not gone unnoticed:
All I can say for now is that we've driven people to SW/Org in this expansion too much and that's not cool. We want to fix that in the next go.
I'm hoping that is the case and that every city will be given a makeover. I mean, giving people a reason to go to Exodar apart from Seasonal Quests has to be a good thing. Right? ^^
I doubt Blizzard is ever going to fix PvP so everyone is happy (if you really want to know what some people think is broken this thread is a must-read but be warned it's very VERY long, but covers a lot of the more specialist issues) but it is clear that feedback is playing a major part now in Blizzard's game development strategy. People have, it must be said, been asking for vanity storage for some time (and even though it's not going to be cheap I will be able to free up an inordinate amount of bank space once 4.3 hits and considering my situation that's never going to be a bad thing) and the fact that Blizzard is now making serious moves to deal with such player issues is only a good thing.
The next question then becomes: what else is flawed in the game right now and could use addressing?
