Like the dungeons and the quest, TSW PVP is hard.
You don't get to make mistakes over and over again like in your standard mmo pvp. You're not gonna get out there and start swing your sword and have any type of win. You must learn. The people who are not willing to learn will come to the forums and cry about OP this and OP that. There is no I win build every build has and will continue to be countered.
Just because the game let's you doesn't mean you can run around as a glass cannon. When I say pvp is hard, I mean the learning curve is step similar to the pvp learning curve in EVE. Any game where you can have a range of 1900 HP with 4k attack or 14k hp with 0 attack and everything inbetween, you're gonna have people who just don't get it. Yes you can and will gimp yourself. Some embrace the challenge, some don't.
The flexibility in what YOU can do is unmatched by any other mmo with the exception of maybe the likes of EvE. So if you want to play a game where you can just pick up and roll TSW is not for you.
If you want to play a game where you spend a week crafting your perfect build, only to find out it's not quite perfect, then spend another week of tweeking and THINKING and tweeking and the WHAM, jockpot your in love. Come give TSW pvp a try.
Now that being said there are abilities that flat out do too much. To much dmg. to much healing, too much mitigation, or maybe even a combination (made by the player) of these things. Twenty-two days, 525 abilities, I'll let it slide.. for now. The neat thing that's coming out of this is that people are adjusting. I'm seeing new builds every day. TSW allows for this. Very sandboxy. But yes I've been pissed many of times too.
The one style of batle ground is not enough as well. I've went as far as to call them mosh pits. The ability wheel is too good to be caged in by this style of battle ground.
When you put learning curve, style of map, and the unforgiving vastness of the ability wheel together, your gonna get some frustrated and upset people. Investigation mission anyone? Arg?
Personally, I wouldn't have it any other way.
