    Default Hmmm..news on the "new" Conquest?

    There for a while it seemed like Daglar was talking about the new conquest (using the Steppes of Infinity map) quite a bit, and I *thought* he indicated that it was going to come out at some point during 2.5.

    Am I missing an update for this? Ever since the yearly "time where nothing happens" (i.e., December) began, I don't recall reading about the new conquest at all. Nothing about testing, nothing about release dates, etc.

    Now, perhaps I just missed it. So, if anyone has info, please correct me.

    Anyway, this question came to mind after I noticed that they're already testing tier 3 raid content....

    It was suppose to
    Daglar threw it on the backburner

    Cause pvp isn't important, all about those dimension items and store items now
    and I'd love to see him say otherwise

    Yes, I'm calling him out

    Maybe they finally realized that no one likes CQ and that they shouldn't waste money on it.

    A lot of people like conquest (including me.) It's nice having a raiding form of pvp.

    Why do you think you're able to speak for everyone?

    I know I am able to speak for everyone.

    If you think you like CQ you are obviously wrong.

    Raiding form of PvP? Running 40+ people into another 40+ people and watching frame rates drop due to poorly optimized game engine. Or do you prefer the intense Player vs Extractor combat it offers?

    I am honestly dreading the new conquest being released, just like i am dreading 3.0.

    I wish i was looking forward to it but every time i think about it rather than the excitement of playing new content i find myself wondering which souls are going to be grossly OP, which souls are going to be woefully under powered and how bad the new gear grinds are going to be.

    The whole model of CQ needs to be revisited. It can be fun, but too many people are there only because they feel they need the CQ power for PvE activities. It lowers the level of play (and the level of /1 chat) a lot.

    Fix the CQ model so that the people who are there are playing it for the fun of it, and for the PvP, rather than for PvE advantages.

    Part of the fun for CQ is killing on the pve raiders who are forced to keep their CQ power up! Mwhahahah!

    There is no point in a new CQ map if they can't improve the way this game handles massive fights.
    Even if the new CQ had the best concept/design ever made, when played at the current fps everything just turns into garbage.

    New CQ is unlockable via new Lock Box, can be openned after 9 months...
    PvP in RIFT is good only @forum.

    On a few occasions on the live stream, Daglar has threatend to shut down all remaining pvp shards, i'm sure he's not fond of pvp in any sense of the imagination. But it really doesnt matter. The pvp community in this game is quite horrid.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    No one likes conquest, no one likes how it functions. no one likes keeping CQ power up on multi toons if you ever wanted to play more than 1 level 60.

    We been grinding the same Bull crap for over 2 years. They need to remove CQ forever remove CQ power, or add in a new CQ with account bound CQ power.

    The mass majority hate CQ as it's useless. Even pve raiders hate it. Trion needs to do something unless they love pissing off their customers (at this point it feels like they do)

    what are you talking about? The pve raiders only come in at timer, or they find a remote spot to afk after tagging a extractor. Or sit outside of base far enough to receive cq power but close enough to the mega cannons lol.

    Can't count the amount of afk Addiction and Trinity members afking in CQ over the last 2 years lol. Even use to catch some Trinity/Addiction members using automated keyboard macros to keep on jumping and moving while they afk back in the day lol, they never even got a warning back then.
