Poll: Raid rewards

rungardrungard st. john''s, NFPosts: 1,035Member

Would you be more inclined to participate in raid content if the content was more community based than personal equipment based?

A community based example would be doing a raid to collect a giant jewel that could be used by guild crafters to build a teleporter in the guild hall. the best equipment for players would come from crafters/dungeons and not raids. Raid mobs could drop equivilent items but not better items than would be attainable elsewhere for personal characters.

A personal based example would be what we have now where you do the raid and get personal items for a select few on the raid. The best equipment would come from raids and some equipment would require crafting to complete the item gained on the raid. Generally crafting and dungeons would offer infenior items.

    I think raids should have best personal gear rewards.

    I do raids cos I want to see the content and try to kill the boss.

    Once completed, I have no interest in grinding for gear or gear skin. 

    I like to play games not work for pixel stuff. 

    I would rather play other games than do 100 x of raids.

    I am becoming SPRG gamer lol.

    Nether or both.

     

    Raid should have rewards for your faction instead of personal and guild only rewards.

    Why not both? I really can't elaborate more on this, I enjoy it giving personal AND guild rewards. Something you can show off for being part of a group even if you might not be with them anymore and something for the guild to show they stood united.

    Just sticking to games without raids from now on.

    Well raids in that sense, I'm cool with the gw2 / daoc / coh style "raids"
  • PhryPhry HampshirePosts: 6,290Member Uncommon
    havent really been all that keen on raiding since stopped playing EQ, couldnt really get into it in WoW either, so without some kind of real incentive to do it, ie, personal rewards being significant enough to provide a big enough 'carrot' i'd be extremely unlikely to participate.image

    Best gear is crafted. Raids give recipes and materials and enhancements for crafting. All gear is tradeable and degrades with limited repair capability.

    Of the two, I definitely think the raid giving guild rewards is the best option.

    Ouch. Uhm.. Neither.

    Raiding isn't the ideal way I like to spend time in a MMO anyway so maybe it's not fair for me to want in on the poll.

    Raids should be an option of gear and there should be multiple options.  As in PvP, challenging dungeons, crafting where one needed to go to great lengths to craft but all would have the relaitve item value reward.  The whole "hope the boss drops my gear and I win the roll" for the 100th time on the same boss gets old real quick.

    ... and no, raids do not offer any sort of improved or higher quality teamwork than some PvP or dungeon encounters.  Best items in raids only serve epeens, drama, and a repetitive "Raid or Die" mentality of a game and other aspects of the game suffers.

    Most definitely -- raid loot should go to guild.

    1. Raid-derived gear degrades crafting and economic systems
    2. When loot goes to guilds vice individuals it eliminates all perception of unfairness ... the old need vs greed argument

     that is my thought as well. We see what everyone else thinks!

    What a lame reward for your efforts. And even if I got some recipies or materials, I wouldn't sell them to create business for someone else, I would craft my own items or have my own crafting alt.

    Absolutely and utterly NOTHING would EVER make me inclined to participate in a raid.

    Ever.

  • GrochieGrochie milton keynesPosts: 11Member

    I am not opposed to raiding,  I just dislike the way raiding becomes the only or the most favoured progression path.  I am also not that keen, that it feels very contrived,  a limited number of people going and doing the same scripted events every week until they have what they need to then do the next scripted event.

    Although my raid experince is limited to pre-tbc WoW, where I had some teenager screaming obscenties at me because I wasn't standing exactly where he told me to stand.  An some EQ before the limited raid numbers (70 ppl IIRC)

  • ZylaxxZylaxx Erlanger, KYPosts: 2,574Member

    I dont do raids, I think its a silly feature and non conducive to good game play.

     

    I have never read a fantasy novel, or watched a fantasy movie where the action came from a small group of intrepid adventurers and as such I feel small groups should always be the perennial content in an MMO.

         I gave up on playing the current raid game..  I play to have fun and this esport epeen raid design today saddens me..  I prefer raids to be community and guild objectives, not used for personal epeen rewards.. I'm currently playing GW2 and enjoying the open world boss encounters..  Most fun I've had since my EQ days of ToV..  After ToV I gave up as I did not like the direction SOE was going with unlocking tiering.. That tore the community and guilds apart..

    Nope. I am not playing games for the "community".

    Just ingame currency.. and a lot of it.

    With that you can do whatever you want with it. Build up guild stuff, buy some personal stuff or whatever.

    Why in hell should something specific drop at raids? So you have to play every  raid x-times? No. seriously not.

     

    Let all items come from crafters, let be trading a game of it own within the game.

    I would prefer not to have raids in my game at all but if they are there this is the best option.  Just let raids result in a truckload of in-game money which can then be used to buy stuff.

    Of course I feel obligated to spell things out on the off chance that a dev might read this.  This is only a good option if money can also be obtained in other ways as well.  I could just see some idiot developer completely missing the point and making raiding the only way to get currency to buy stuff.

    Both. I love the raids in LOTRO that drop housing decorations. They can't be obtained anywhere else and work on personal or kinship (guild) houses. Nice status items and fun to get.

    This all day every day. The high end mats used for crafting should come from raids. nothing else. mob armor piece or poison fangs or dragon scales. crafting mats only.

    Is this the quintessential solo player mind set. Take what you want from that statement.
