    Default Global movement speed increase and PVP.

    Just curious what people think the new increased on-foot speed will do in PVP.

    Predictions, HOOOO!

    Sorry guys.. hmm.. something about rogues.

    I wonder why they did change it though... where is the only place you are forced to run? That one horrible WF, karth? Oh and BG. I guess it's neato for that.

    Oh I guess dungeons and raids to, but people just res where they died in this game anyway.

    It's alright. Shame on me for trying to get a giggle out of some (poor) flamebait.

    I figured they changed it just for convenience. So very often, while gathering or even just around town, I see people mount up to cover short distances. This way, I imagine they'll be less inclined to do so. Little conveniences. *shrug*

    Allrdy said in general forum that the idea is bad... the movement speed in pvp is allrdy to high. Some classes can allrdy run 10times around you in 1sec...

    It looks like it's working anyway. People just read the first post, maybe hit end to read the last post, then reply to either of those.
    I think you'll be good.

    I know man, I just had a rogue (figures, Trions fav class) run around me 13 times in 1 second, which is clearly too many times because before I could tolerate the 10 laps in 1 second, but now.....I won't sit for it.


    I'm quitting rift if this is not reverted.

    So if global speed was increased by 200% for everyone, there would be no issues?

    I doubt it's an issue, but logically, you can't just ramp up speed evenly and say it will work because it is all relatively the same. Try playing an FPS when someone jacks the server settings and makes everyone run at mach speed.

    :
    I like this idea, would make positioning that much more important. Not to mention it would make for one hell of a game lol.

    Anyone who has to stand still to cast/channel will be disadvantaged as it's going to result in less time being able to free cast before w/e melee soul gets into range to bash your face in. (Although no one plays melee anymore so this point may be moot right?). Meanwhile marksmen will be zipping around like the Flash on crack.

    Haven't tried it yet so I'm unsure of how this changes things in reality.

    In theory this further pushes the game towards more instant-casts since a person casting an ability can be interrupted easier since a melee can close the distance quicker.

    Though in reality a good rogue will always shut down a caster (2 interrupt/silences at range on short cd), so it may be a moot point.

    It isn't any different still. If I'm going for you, and your targeting me, then I hope you aren't going just continue to still stand there, and will actually kite me.
    Which you all do.

    Which is another problem all together.
