    Default Plz No Performance Based Rewards For Warfronts

    hi everyone, a lot of people think that the only ones in warfronts
    helping there team are the ones that do the most damage or healing.

    people can be doing important jobs like guarding flags in dom bg and ridge
    or codex and not see any or much action.

    also people in port scion could be running stones all game and
    not do much damage or healing.

    i just don't understand why players are so obsessed with stat's in warfronts.

    Agreed. Here's a thread that only cares about kb/dmg. Probably why they lost the warfront.

    What are these "rewards" you speak of.

    Unless you are referring to the super cool hate tells one receives from completely new and clueless players or fresh 60's spouting stuff like:

    1. "you freaking suck!><?><<!~! - I'd OWN you 1vs1"
    2. "your premade carried you"
    3. "exploit much??"
    4. "you're all gear and no skill noob - suck my d@#$ b#@ch!" *hits ignore immideately after QQ*

    These are some of my favorite rewards - and makes me LOL most of the day

    As much as I agree with you, most of those are true.

    Players are obsessed with competition, and scoreboard stats provide a way to compete, even though it definitely isn't ideal. I'd rather there be some sort of visible ELO rating in place, then you'd see people go try hard at the pve stuff to win, instead of going try hard on damage/kbs.

    Cause objectives are boring and hard to care about.

    if we make scoreboard stats matter, mages will be less inclined to play Dom builds.
    without Doms on the field, warlord specced warriors will run rampant.

    if there is a plot to link warfront rewards to scoreboard performance, you will find that it is a cabal of warriors behind it, with the intention of removing from pvp the single soul that keeps them in check.

    You don't have to worry about this. All incentives are being transferred to a lockbox system. Isn't gambling fun?
