    Default Mercanary - Forced to level and gear opposite team? Game breaking.

    I am a new rift player as of this week, and purchased this game because I heard it was 2 factions at war with each other, yet it seems if I play warfronts, my chosen form of pvp i'm absolutely forced to help gear and level the side im suppose to be at war with.

    I do not want to gear and level up my enemies... why am I forced to? At least let me leave the warfront without the 15minute debuff if im placed as a mercanary.

    This is actually ruining the game for me so as of now I am unsubscribing and waiting on an offical answer from trion.

    Any games with real faction v faction anyone can suggest since this one really isn't and we all play for the same side it seems.

    Sorry unless on a PvP server there really is no Faction vs Faction world game here. If on a PvP server you should be given the option not to merc, only makes sense. Otherwise it is just Red vs Blue.

    Bad players will still be bad even with good gear, why does it matter? It's not like one side is so vastly outgeared compared to the other, nor will that happen, ever.

    If I had a dollar for every post like this on these forums I could retire I think. Not a well thought out reason for Trion to give you an answer. You were also not here when the queue times were extremely long in comparison to now. It's a good thing, don't try and ruin a good thing, you don't want to be that guy/girl.

    Everyone plays to win, why does faction matter? The only way it would matter is if you are an RP player. If that's the case then just deal with it because it's a good thing.

    I'm gonna pull a Holyterror and say "Did you know the auction houses are cross-faction? Yes, that's right! Every time you use the auction house, you're gearing up the opposite faction!"

    GG. Now you can't use an auction house anymore bro

    What do you expect when you buy into the hype on the box instead of researching the game. At least some of us have an excuse that we were dragged along by hype. If you just bought the game and are now getting mad at it then its your bad.

    You're a new player this week and this is troubling you?

    I find your post sceptical in the extreme tbh.

    Son.. There are no enemies in this game. Enemies generally means there is something worth fighting for.

    Any game with real factions would have something worth fighting over. Not just..."Oh there is a red lets attack" We killed him and gained nothing.. Not even the 5 health pots he had in his inventory.. FAIL.

    If this disturbs you already.. leave the game. You will not get ANY official answer, with very good reason.

    Ok let's pretend you have actually only been playing for a week, and you really are questioning why mercs have been introduced.

    It has pretty much put an end to 'zomg Trion do something about the 'queue syncing' pre-mades, they are making me cry!!!!'

    It has made the matches a lot more balanced. I'm pretty sure of that, because the 60+ threads on 'omg Trion do something about Defiant always winning, it is making me cry!!!' have ceased.

    Some of the lolmatched warfronts are actually .. matched now.

    The queue times are FAST. It's not open world PvP where you have an enemey as such. IT IS RED VS BLUE. IT IS INSTANCED PVP. To me there is a difference, maybe I'm odd.

    Red vs blue was also asked for, repeatedly, by a large number of players of the PvP community.
    More players asked for red vs blue, than are now complaining, because their button pressing pixels are 'gasp' having to play with their arch enemies.

    And how are you dealing with playing for your side, with a merc in your team? Are you quite happy to let them heal you? Or cap flags? Or dps?

    So sick of these stupid threads. So sick of good ideas being made (yes Meina I'm referring to) and instead of people discussing it, they just keep crying.
