    Default A plethora of suggestions.

    My first suggestion is in regards to the user interface which at times seems as spastic as my sick uncles colon. A broad majority of the time I spend playing this game I am constantly analyzing timing and functionality all of which scream issues. My first suggestion is to tightened the mapping feature a bit, and adjust the mouses pointer to actually work. I snapped at least 100 hours of footage and noticed all these little bugs, I call them that anyways, because if they were working properly I would not have to click the toolbar 5000 times before getting a result. The second part is how responsive the toolbar is. When I click on my thunderous leap and move my mouse to a position about 75% to 85% of the time the game does not initiate the move. No while i know there may be internet skeptics asking question about my system and stability. Here is the skinny, I7 sandy bridge 3.8ghz 16 gig ram and 2 560t1 2gig videos, on raid 1 SSD's. I have no other issues with any other games in this genre except yours. It is the only game that some how forgets that my camera is set to max distance yet resets constantly, requires spam like precision to use attacks or items when in or out of combat.The problem is the responsiveness of the mouse pointer and the software recognizing it clicking in a particular spot. It should be set to allow me to quickly click on a toolbar button and be ready to cast, not click try , click try , click try, then I'm dead because the previous four or five attempts at simple operation failed.
    My second suggestion is one that most probably don't see in the same set of eyes as me so I will attempt to explain. I pay you 15 a month to play a Defiant. I don't pay you to play a guardian. I cant stand them. The way the look, feel, their culture and everything else. It doesn't appeal one bit. So I make defiant because they are more my style. Yet when I PVP and wait for an hour sometimes to get in que and when I enter I am a Guardian. This is the most annoying most disgusting thing I have ever BEEN FORCED to play in my life. FORCED because you did not stop to ask me if I as a player wanted to play with my sworn enemy. FORCED because there was no option. So I enter after waiting an hour and leave in 2 secs. and have to wait another 30 to see if your game will be so nice to put me with my team. I believe in team spirit. Defiant is my TEAM. So stop making me waste my time and my money. Put in a button that says yes ill play as a traitorous pig or with my team. Cause I am serious it makes me sick to think I give money to someone to play a game and I can't play what I pay for. Does that make sense to you. I do not mind waiting for 5 hours to play one game with my team. Its why I leave games when I get placed on blue, because my bloods runs RED suckas!! I do not wish to help the opposite faction either. Having me play on their team and help them win games means they get gear and my team doesn't. So yeah not the way I want to spend my paycheck or time. I am not here to help players that i fight get better unless it is fighting me face to face. If they watch my skills they will learn or if they see how quickly i dispatch them, then maybe they can make improvements.


    Last thing is about world PVP. I play on a PVP server because there is a part of me that loves to go into the world and seek out some action. But now that I am older and a bit more refined I do not wish to spend hours of my night sitting in a zone being camped by a raid of people that prey off individuals. Here is my suggestion. Since it takes approximately 10 to 15 to clear most quests of any sorts, why not enable a feature that allows people who are crunched for time to turn off pvp so they could peacefully finish their dailies and move onto more important things. Not permanently turn off but for a short duration. It would have to be premeditated, meaning you must be out of combat or pvp for over a certain time period, then you could activate it. Not right when a player is running up to gank you or anything. Knowing some people, it would get misused. What I am suggesting is a short I don't feel like fighting button or a white flag where players see you as a non threat, it also means you cant pvp or heal pvp affected people. Basically phasing you from getting involved in conflicts this way soloists like myself don't have to get upset when trying to complete daily before bed time turns into a five hour affair because three or four people are trying to finish their ridiculously high 25 kills a day. The reason I suggest this not only for myself but other I have brought into this game.
    Also For those in the modeling department for creating models of ground objects, set objects, and other models that may contain collision maps. You need to seriously check your Collision boxes on certain things. For example curtains on the wall leading into meridian have a small opening in the collision mesh that allows a person to walk into the object and get stuck, A house in stillmore inside of the conquest on south of map has same problem. Last I road into a sign post and somehow got moved into a building I could see out of but couldn't leave. The boss inside Realm of the Fae is a great example. In a run last week the tree wall had somehow got stuck up before we even fought the boss. Meaning we could not complete. So i used pvp jump ability to wall jump up and over the bosses collision mesh on shrubbery, in fact in a lot of places I can use mechanics to surpass walls. Even with your camera which doesn't seemed to stay in one place before changing distance and direction randomly.
    Last suggestion I swear: And this is a big one. Camera distance maxed out, Objects in background somehow overlap models in foreground. Meaning If I am on my cleric and I use Oblivion and try to place it if I am maxed camera the game decides to start my placement circle on; Ceiling, archway. behind me, above me, not where it should be, on wall, in another room I cannot see or go to yet, anywhere BUT WHERE I WANT TO PLACE THE SPELL.
    I lied, Falling over jumping over riding. Mounted movement is like driving a shopping cart with no brakes. I love riding my mount and hearing the noise of my hooves hitting the ground clop, clop, clop, clop, 99999 damage. Yet the game feels that somehow my horse can make noises while flying through the air. Its an audio problem and a distinguish where the position is problem. Numerous times I will be riding hear noises think I am still riding but I'm falling. More than half the time the distance falling is small but damage is beyond ludicrous. I have jumped off towers and buildings sustaining minimal damage without use of skills or items. Yet if I come off the smallest rock i die from fall damage. OH and part of this is also the Bahmi Jump. I can jump forward, up, left, right, and backwards, no problemo. If I jump down i take fall damage. If I charge down I take fall damage. If I plane shift down I take fall damage. Lets think about this. If I teleport before actually falling where is the momentum to do such harsh things? If I am charging down a hill, would I not have more momentum thus doing more damage? If I use a racial that can move me 30 feet in any direction is the force of the jump not the same in each direction? And why is it you give a racial to all of us that seem infinitely useless. Why does a nature ability not work anywhere? That's like saying N.B.A. players can't jump, shoot or pass the ball. Why does combat have to effect a physical ability that everyone on this planet can do? To me it seems foolish in some areas, in others appropriate.

    It is so hard to distinguish what you're trying to say. Since you have so many suggestions, comments, et cetera, I would really recommend using bullet points or some other form of formatting. Many of your paragraphs have suggestions that are completely unrelated to each other.

    That being said, I want to comment on two of your points.

    1) The mercenary system is intended to help with the queue times. Don't see the warfronts as Guardian vs. Defiant, see them as Red vs. Blue. Due to gearing, the only characters that you can tell outright what race they are would be Dwarves and Bahmi. Because of this, I would recommend you not take your PvP so seriously.

    2) Try transferring over to a PvE server and flagging for PvP when you're in the mood. On a PvP server, you don't get to choose. That's the point of a PvP server. Allowing exceptions would ruin the whole point.
    Regardless of what happens, people will always be unhappy. Be thankful for what you have and always be constructive.

    You should check options for "activate skills on pressing key not on release" and you should lock your toolbar so when you click on a button in rapidness you won't drag the icon away instead of pressing it.
    P2P= good
    F2P/item mall = byebye

    Default Regarding press on buttons and lock.

    This issue doesn't have to do with what you are referring to. The cast on release has never been active, nor is the lock feature an issue. Though I have noticed often that it unlocks quite frequently on log in.
    And yes the PVE server. I have often thought of going there but this is just another run around way do doing things.
    As for the button issue i am talking about its simple. I press a key on keyboard or that my mouse is highlighted over. NOTHING HAPPENS. As in its like the game doesn't realize that I pressed the button. The videos I have show me spamming a potion button about 142 times before the game acknowledges what it was supposed to be doing.
    Or if I press an placeable aoe move. sometimes i get no marked on ground, no hand symbol onmouse confirming the button I depressed worked and on my mouse same result. Its like the UI is broken internally or SLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! All i had to do to get all those letters was hold down the button. the PC automatically spammed it. So if i can hold a button and get easy spam, why when i press, say, the number 3 button nothing happens.

    Let me educate you on my feeling towards helping another player. If I am defiant and I go out into the world and spend all day being GANKED by level 50 gaurdians, do you really think I want to pvp on their side. TO HELP THEM GET MORE GEAR?? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR EFFING MIND??? That is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard!!! Thats why I hate playing your stupid red vs blue. this aint halo!!! Merc means not enough for other side, what ever, then don't make uneven ques. Many times I get into a bg 3 defiants, 9 gaurds at start. and we loose hard. So i would not say the system is perfect. What I am saying is I do not want to put gear on folks I will be killing. I do not want to be part of a SOCIALIST gaming community or communist one either. I am not for making everyone even because that is not truth. I put many hours of mylife and my timeinto this game for my enjoyment not yours. Im not here to help you beat me and this is what mercenary means. Help the opposite side win a game or two. Well I for one wont be part of that. I don't expect anyone else to either. If you actually think about how many games you play on opposite side and then try that statement of not knowing the difference between races. PSSH are you blind!!!! I can spot all the races easily. I know when a guard is merced to us, and I wont heal them or help them out either. And you can't make me either lol! So welcome to the do it yourself type.

    Then all I can say is to get over yourself. If you want to sabotage your own enjoyment of the game, then have fun.
