    Default More Posts In PvP forums than Dungeon/rift/quest forums?!

    I found it interesting that on Trion's Forums that the PvP section had more Threads or posts than most other sections.

    As of Thursday June 22 at 1:33pm PST.

    General Discussions - 1,079,309 posts
    Classes of Telara - 417,090 posts
    PvP and Warfronts - 93,317 posts
    Dungeons & Raids - 27,900 posts
    Crafting and Tradeskills - 17,772 posts
    Rifts and Invasions - 3,844
    Quests - 2,991 posts

    So most interest seems to be in the PvP and Warfronts section, almost half the servers are PvP servers and all we hear from Trion is utter silence with regards to even VAGUE PvP content or changes coming. Read the forums... people on the PvP servers are looking for SIGNIFICANT open world PvP changes to create dynamic PvP. There is good PvP and Bad PvP in the open world, ganking people doing rifts and quests is not great open world PvP. Ancient Wardstones are NOT great incentives to have people PvP around.

    There are many good things with Rift, but lack of quality PvP and open world Mechanics are outweighing the good. This is your product Trion, but if all you want is a decent PvE game... keep on doing what your doing, but your not gonna keep the PvP subscribers around for long.

    I, Like many people, knew there would be limited PvP at release, but all the comments from Trion like "We'll listen to the subscribers." and "If people want RvR or Open world PvP we'll add it" made me give them benefit of the doubt. A change of direction is needed here from the Devs.

    You would be wrong to assume that just because it has the highest number of posts means that it has the most interest in rift.

    Duh. Because even people on PvE servers do warfronts, and alot more often than you would think. And when people complain on the Dungeons and Raids forum about something, they get it fixed to EZMode (example, 1.2 patch changed t2 dungeons for undergeared 10 year olds).


    When people complain in PvP, people from the class they are complaining about will lie to not get nerfed. Trolls will post "get skill game is fine" on any and every complaint, 50% of the population are negative nancys (the poster above) and will just post something stupid to try and make you look wrong and make them feel better.


    PvP has more posts because

    1 most people in Rift PvP through warfronts, even PvE shards PvP this way ALOT

    2 PvP has many problems with balance that PvE doesnt have, because the npc wont complain if he gets oneshotted.

    3 PvP problems are also neglected. So people continue to post complaints and Trion doesn't answer to them and doesnt fix them. Every "Balance update" just ****s something up and makes a different class FOTM. How many threads do we have on pyros, yet I can still oneshot people if I feel like it.

    and 4, though there are alot of problems in pvp with balance and such, there are also alot of 10 year olds complaining every time they die about any spell or ability that kills them.

    PvP is where this game is most lacking and needs the most work, so it's probably going to see the majority of posts.
