    Default mercenary mode is terrible

    I am so sick of geting put on the other sides team all the time.

    Please give me a way to op out of it. I dont mind if I have to wait a bit longer to pvp as long as I am on my own team.

    At the moment I just dont want to pvp anymore geting put on the other side all the time.

    Been complaining since it started, but Trion don't seem to care - well I will be walking when my sub runs out if they don't listen

    Stop thinking of it as Guardians vs. Defiants, and more of Red vs. Blue now. Eliminate the notion of "factions" from the warfronts and you'll eliminate your own problem.

    I'm not big on PvP... I usually just go to Sanctum, pick up my daily, and finish it.....

    (wait for it...)


    Which took over an hour to do this morning, since apparently every Defiant in my battlegroup that was queued at the time didn't know the mechanics of Black Garden.

    5 rounds in a row- facerolled. Finally, round 6, I get slated on my home team- and DO the facerolling.
    And before anyone cries foul- it's not like I didn't try. Top damage dealt in multiple rounds, including 2 rounds with the ONLY carrier kills on the Defiant team.

    If I'd had an option to not queue for the Defiant side, I would've been all over it this morning. Lots to do while I wait for that queue- I don't mind, really. What I DO mind is getting stuck in a warfront with a bunch of people who didn't seem to care enough to try.

    Just my two cents.

    At first i didn't mind the merc system. I do role play a bit so the idea of ok, so i'm a mercenary they are paying blah blah. but when i decide to do any pvp.. i am almost always merc'd to the defiant teams..

    now don't get me wrong i'm not one to sit around and go oh hell i'lll just blow it for this side to help my faction.
    but it does take a bit of fun when you are 98% of the time playing for the opposite side.

    i like a good fight like, sometimes a lopsided fight ( either winning or losing/holding your own ) but i would like the option to merc or not merc if i so chose.. and not have it randomly decide for me.

    I love it.

    I pvp to kill people. I don't care in the SLIGHTEST who that may be, whether that my team, the other, or even my grandmother... I WANT TO KILL PEOPLE.

    IMO, the merc system DOESN'T GO FAR ENOUGH.

    Queue for a WF? Get a random colour assigned to you. Factions, pfff, they have no place in a field of killing.

    This.. the whole thing. -Awards a cookie-

    You don't PvP to be the best faction, you PvP to PvP. Nothing more.

    I PvP to be one with my faction, and even though when I'm mercd 3/4ths of the time there's other guardians on the team, I am still not fighting with my faction.

    Be prepared to be told how selfish and stupid you are.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I hope the effort wasn't too taxing for you.

    I like merc mode.


    My Bahmi Cleric never gets attack when I'm a merc. They see a male Bahmi and assume that I'm on their team.

    You dont get anything extra or lose anything if you are not on your faction side; you only get rewards if you win... if you lose you get less rewarded.. I have been on both sides and its funny how each of the other factions talk about each other that they are over powered, twinks etc. both sides say the same thing and I find it very humorous. Or the "the guardians havent won a wf in the last wfs ive been in" thats always a good one.

    again like most said here already.. pvp to pvp.. do it for no other reason. I personally think they should make a perm kill pvp warfront. Then true skill would finally shine through.
