    Default Being a Mercenary should be optional

    Any time that I get into a Warfront and get put on the other team, I hate the next 20 minutes of gameplay.. It's never fun. And when my team (defiants) wins, and I'm on the other team, I rage.. bad.

    It's the most frustrating feature that I've found so far in the game, and, if nothing else, it should be optional.

    as someone who plays pvp for the love of the game (and yes i am max prestige with the full set of R40 gear), i would rather get into a match instead of just sitting on my murdantix in merridian waiting for the next game. More time playing = more favor/prestige.

    The merc system is like the French resistance during ww2. Slightly effective, mostly annoying.

    The merc system depends on it being not optional.

    If you're constantly in warfronts that are losing regardless of which side you're assigned to, you should probably spend a bit of time reevaluating what you're bringing to your team.

    First of all, why would you suspect knowing who I am?
    Second of all, since when does having 1 post mean that someone is a troll?
    You're the one posting with utter nonsense. Just food for thought.

    I don't see how the mercenary system depends on it being 'not optional'.. how is that?
    The game should be focused on player experience, and if a player doesn't want to play on the other team then why force it upon them? That doesn't make any sense to me.

    Also, 1 person doesn't really make a monumental difference in Warfront PvPs, namely Port Scion (which is what I'm focusing on here). Especially being a fresh 50. It's all about team coordination until you've got R40 gear.


    Lastly, why am I getting condescended towards for being a new member to the forums?
    The in-game community is great, but the forums are littered with ******bags (just to be blunt about it). I'm new to the forums because I spend my time in-game, not on the forums.. I've been playing Rift for over 8 months.

    Except for this guy:

    That's the kind of personality that I often find in-game.. hilarious.

    Usually first posters are people that just wants to start another thread about some topic to repeat and hopefully grab some dev's attention. There has been alot of these going on lately, probably the 5th one I've seen now. I only post cold hard truths that people usually dont want to hear

    No. You post cold hard opinions, which we've heard ad nauseum. Facts are not a strong suit here.

    We've pretty much discussed this one to death here, as well as in a few other threads.

    In short...

    Some people agree with you and have come up with an opt out system that they feel should not adversely effect the people who want to merc.

    Others do not agree and have supplied several reasons why they feel things should stay the same as they are.

    Still others will troll the crap out of you for having the gall to post on the forums.

    Oh, and still nothing from Trion in the subject.

    Hey at least he was honest. And IMO that is the reason 95% of these threads pop up.

    Now see, if you had just left it at the first line it would have been a decent post, but you had to go and qq it up by adding the second line.
