    Default A Request to Nerf Bridges and Trees

    By now, most of have experienced the problem that these OP Bridges and Trees cause in Warfronts. Most of us would probably agree about how large an issue they are. Of course, there are those that do not care about winning, objectives, or the like - because they are simply interested in fighting, fighting, fighting.

    So they will see Bridges and Trees as something that is working as intended.

    Unfortunately for them, RIFT Warfronts are objective based battlegrounds. Winning is determined by completion of said objectives. You can win without a single kill. Yes, I get that some may look upon that with disdain, but hey - that is what Trion has given us.

    As such, Bridges and Trees are massively OP problems in RIFT Warfronts.

    Bridges are a well known magnet for the somewhat average player. These players will flock from all over the map to fight at said bridges while ignoring any and all objectives.

    Trees are an interesting topic of conversation. They hold an opposite effect, in a sense. Trees repel the somewhat average player. If the objective is on the other side of a tree, those players will not go around the tree. Whether it means getting to the enemy or supporting somebody on their own team, these players will just stay on the wrong side of the tree.

    There is no doubt that something needs to be done about Bridges and Trees. Next to microDwarves, they are the two most pressing issues that we face in RIFT Warfronts...

    ...just a thought.

    How about we remove the middle of the map too, people like to fight in the middle.... lets leave 2 bases without bridges or ground between them

    damn no no no bases, people start turtling.... lets have an open field with a huge hole in the middle, and no trees ofc

    rofl, no, just a random troll post. It wasn't directed at anyone or anything. But I figured you have to have several "WTF DID YOU READ WHAT I SAID' comments in any good nerf thread, figured this thread could use one.

    Nerf everyone, we can have warfronts where we run in naked and unbuffed and toss pies at one another. Everyone could be a winner, and we will hug one another when it is over. We can earn prestige and spend it on fluffy bunny costumes and carebear belly badges.

    Nah, I have just one account... I was wondering what the guy was talking about as well - cause it fit the other post.

    I still think it was funny that the other guy in the other post missed the fact that I was talking about dead Warriors landing on people needed a buff...heh.

    warriors would be able to block the pies, healers would bubble through the pies, mages will be able to throw 10 pies at once and rogues, well rogues will try to dodge them while stealth
