    Default The Ascended Chronicle: It's In Trion's Hands Now

    With this installment to The Ascended Chronicle, I discuss why the current state of Rift PvP is dire, why that is the case, and how to fix it. As always, feedback is welcome either in the comments on the blog or in response to this post. I only ask that the comments be constructive as anything derogatory or trollish will be deleted.

    Thanks!
    Moved on from Rift due to: Rift's PvP being a mindless, skilless zerg that has been and will continue to be perpetuated and reinforced :: A horribly optimized engine :: My personal distaste for F2P (already heading down the P2W path) after giving it a fair shake. Rift is an exceptional MMO by an overachieving development team that unfortunately is ruined by a few personally show-stopping issues.

    Arena will fix nothing.

    Also, PvP should be about winning. Carrot chasing has ruined MMOs.
    Even free cost too much now

    I respect your opinion but the evidence is stacked against you substantially.

    I realize there's a select group of individuals who don't understand the success we've enjoyed since the game launched but that's okay. For every negative comment I receive from the small handful of folks such as yourself, I receive 1-2 positive comments via PM, in-game, through the like button, or other means. It's rewarding to see so many rally in your defense when a small group of antagonists relentlessly attempt to keep the game we supposedly all love down.

    You're blog says we should turn Rift into WoW, but there is a problem. Rift isn't WoW, and that is one of the reasons I play Rift. If you can't enjoy PvP for the sake of PvP then **** off and go season it up in WoW.

    Clarification. I love to play PVP for the sake of playing PVP. However, I also love the rewards. I'm not going to WOW either.

    gota disagree with you lil cuz.
    DAOC was the greatest pvp mmo of all time and there was ZERO carrot chasing for the high point. you could never get any higher Stregnth or higher damage and no additional skills once you hit max level .. and everyone played the hell out of it.

    REAL pvpers dont pvp for rewards. Think about it. the 3 main pvp games of this era were daoc uo and war.. all had no rewards for the initial run

    completely agree with this article. rift PVP is hella fun and really has alot of potential, but like any game doing the same thing over and over again gets stale after a while. They should change it up every quarter to keep that new feeling, and dimension arenas

    Agree that Rift PvP is in a bad place, but disagree with much of your stance in the article. Only thing you mention that I strongly agree with (and is one of the things I've suggested for a long time) is the use of Dimensions to satisfy the arena "itch".

    Give us group dueling and I'll be adding ladders or leagues to DYER in a heartbeat.

    As soon as it becomes "official" you run the risk of needing distinct balancing and the introduction of unnecessary carrots.

    I for one don't want arena's. I want persistent open world pvp. With persistent objectives.
