    Default Trion! Fix your unbalanced game!

    Straight up....

    Trion, fix your unbalanced game.

    Mainly pvp....it's almost not even fun anymore.

    Rank 8 people just run around in "premade" groups ganking people. I'm rank 6, so my gear doesn't completely suck, but when melee is hitting me for 1-2k consistently, it just becomes unenjoyable.

    Yes, I do play a rogue, and apparently we're going to get "buffed", but getting a buff, will just mean another class will just become way overpowered, until the balance gets shifted again.

    You guys really need to figure something out. I feel bad for rank 1-4 who have to face rank 7-8 people with ridiculously high damage weapons, without being able to do anything if they
    a: haven't been raiding hammerknell (which is 90% of the populations
    or
    b: haven't spent ridiculous amounts of time getting to rank 8

    Yes, Higher ranking people should have rewards for spending so much time grinding, but just being able to slaughter people, without any sort of challenge.....it's dumb.

    I understand this has all been said before, and you guys are working on basically "switching the balance of power" to another class. Something needs to be fixed.

    Options? Not sure if they'll work, but....
    Maybe allow only certain "amounts" of certain "ranks" into matches at a single time.
    Give people access to weapons that can be somewhat compared to pvp weapons, without doing the hardest raid instance in the game. (Make decent weapons available through rigorous quests, or notoriety)
    Make warfronts a choice to be segregated. (give different prestige/favor rewards for different ranks)
    *Higher ranked people given lower prestige/favor for killing lower ranked people, and vice versa....Allow
    lower ranked people to get more prestige/favor for jumping into higher ranked matches.

    Rank 7-8 fanboi's that don't like a challenge...flame away. I don't care. I'm just putting my opinion out there. If you don't like it, tough.

    You cant fix this mess unless you remove the ridiculous gear disparity between entry lv 50 and hk/r8 gear. But will that even help? You are still left with a game that has no balance and quirky game play.

    I haven't PvP'd yet but may eventually, but I think they need to add one more level R9. Then, have three separate brackets level R1+R2+R3; R4+R5+R6; and R7+R8+R9. Or, leave it at 8, and split it into 4 brackets of 2 levels each. That would draw me to PvP, and probably other players, too. I'm sure quite a few of us are looking at the high levels killing the lower levels and are not PvP'ing for that reason.

    I don't care how long it takes, but there has to be a little equality.

    It is impossible to balance PVP in a mmo when the hell you young players will understand that?? GO play a FPS for balance its very simple geez.

    Once T3 raids come out, I'm sure we'll have ranks 9 and 10.

    PvP is for people who can't raid.

    Everyone knows this.

    I agree I am also getting sick of it .... Trion has so much potential and they are being lazy ... 1.5 will be the hay-maker of them ... Because that where the OG rifters will say " This is a wast of my time" and simply quit! I sick of warriors killing me in 3 sec with all rank 4 gear and healers spamming healing and DoT me!

    Trion you are farking up!

    Hmm I think you are the broken one. as R6 I could still kill R8's pretty easy, I do agree going up against a bunch of R8's usually means we would not win unless we had a stacked team. But its not a PVP balance issue its a team stacking issue. Perhaps if they had some sort of thing that tries to even the ranks out on the teams or something but than that would take all the fun out of guild stacked runs. Ps we run all R8's alot too and I would not want to change that we win alot we loose alot it really depends on who you are playing.
