This ‘competitive PVPer’ displays his forever-aloneness by thinking anything he says will garnish sympathy for him being a huge loser.
I think we can all agree that there is nothing lamer than some arena pvp fag flourishing his ‘accomplishments’ as evidence of being some kind of bad ass.
Let me give a quick background of myself before I really delve into it. I played WoW back in the day when there weren’t any battlegrounds, when TM and SS were where all the PvP happened. Then came the BM/HWL grind. I got two druids to rank 12(one on each faction), but didn’t get any farther because I had RL obligations. In BC, I played a feral druid in arenas. Feral druids were not very good back then, but I managed to grab duelist in the first two seasons, then gladiator in the last two of BC. WoTLK came out, and I facerolled my way to glad on a DK, and got 2600 on a rogue. When rated warzones came out, I got “Hero of the Alliance” on two characters, then quit the game. In Aion I got full Fenris gear, and a +10 bow. I also was one of the first Asmodean Generals. In Rift I had two prestige 5 characters.
Anyway, back to SWTOR. I logged on today, only to log off after five minutes of sitting in the fleet. It baffled me. I used to come home and be excited to log on and play, especially on Tuesdays. I was confused, and slightly worried. So I sat in my chair and tried to figure out what was wrong. I slowly began to piece it together. There was literally nothing that I could do that would matter. I could continue the BM grind on my alt, but when the next patch comes out, I’ll get better gear without requiring the time invested to reach rank 70. I thought about doing warzones on my main, but again, there’s no point. I am already valor 65, and there’s no reason to go above that. You can’t mount in warzones, and Ilum is virtually obsolete now. Even if they do come out with new valor rank mounts, when would I get to show it off? When I’m AFK in the fleet?
I completed the operations the week they came out, and I have no gear left to farm from them. I can’t min/max my gear and rotation like I would on other games, because there’s no damage meter or training dummies to sit on. I have 4 million credits, so I don’t need to farm mats and craft items to sell. I guess I could make another PvP video, but I would honestly rather play MW3 right now.
I’m not upset because everyone is going to be on an even playing field for rated warzones. I’m not upset because I have a chance to get beat by players who others refer to as “scrubs.” I’m all for even playing fields. I just see no point in rated warzones. There’s no progression at all. I like having a rating to aim for knowing that I will get a new piece of gear that is a slight upgrade from what I have. From my understanding, the ratings will give us recolored PvP gear and mounts. I’ve already stated my opinion on the mounts. The PvP gear however, is apparently going to be fully Remodable next patch. I don’t care for my current sets of PvP gear, I would much rather mix and match orange pieces of gear that are world drops/craft able. So there’s no real intensive for me to play rated warzones. I honestly don’t know what to do right now. I really enjoyed playing SWTOR, so I don’t know what is wrong with me. I just have no desire to play, and it makes me sad.
I would like to reiterate one more time. I am not afraid of everyone receiving equal gear levels. At the ratings that I play at, the people that I am against are not at that rating because they have the best gear, they are there because they are very, very good. I have had people in my rated battleground groups mostly using the previous season’s gear, and we still got the top .5%. Hell, I hit gladiator range in 3s with an alt paladin healer within the first few weeks, in literally 3/4 the blue PvP set. I guess what I am trying to say is… If you are that good, the gear isn’t going to matter as much as everyone is making it seem like.
Holy ****. I didn’t realize I wrote that much… I guess I was really motivated.
