     Atm it justs a zerg running to 1 keep then to another. Guilds will cap a keep then go to sleep( or other things ) and lose the keep, what did they gain? what was the purpose? theres no meaning to it, whats the point.  You can hire mercs to put in your keep but they dissapear after 5 mins. you can put balistas and other siege equipment.. but they die if no 1 is on them around 3-5 mins.. theres no sense of progression.

    p.s im half cut not sure if this makes any sense lol

    I've put about 14 hours into EOS PvP now and this definitely sums up the PvP for me.   The combat itself, as in character control and skills, is fantastic, but this PvP system is incredibly boring.  Zerg here, now zerg there, now go back and zerg here again.  An individual player or even a small group can have no significant impact on the outcome.  Then add to that there is nothing to lose by dying and virtually nothing significant to gain by killing, and you have one of the least exciting, least meaningful PvP experiences to come out in an MMO.

     

    Which is a shame because I really wanted to like ESO.  I LOVE the combat, the graphics/sound are great, the skill system and world are great.  But if this PvP system is the only PvP to be found in the game, it doesn't merit a box+sub for me. 

    killquest gains/capture quest/ Defending quest, gives you actually good rewards for pvping. Only bad point you gotta keep porting back to deliever them. I tried to pvp+ craft the items which i earned from it to metals, which I used to level my blacksmith

    Personally I don't see that changing the faction identity too much. It is pushing the lore a little, but all the tamriel races have people living in foreign lands to some extent. There is no reason why they can't fight for the faction they prefer, especially since these factions are pretty loose alliances created by circumstances. Khajit in Aldemeri, Orcs in Daggerfall and the entire Ebonheart have a lot of tension between themselves.

    I haven't played DAOC, but I have experienced PVP in many other games and so far I like PVP in ESO.  Is there zerging?  yes, but how many PVP games don't have some form of zerging?  Even with all its faults I liked Warhammers PVP the best.  There was zerging, but it didn't always mean the biggest zerg won.  Many times a small group of us would successfully defend a keep against a much larger force.  I have seen the same thing in ESO as well.

    Bottom line, if you enjoy it then who cares, if not, don't play it and waste your time or anyone else's in the game.

    I'm not an IT Specialist, Game Developer, or Clairvoyant in real life, but like others on here, I play one on the internet.

    My thoughts excactly. felt like GW2 all over again, zerg here zerg there if you not part of the zerg dead in five minutes. Eveyone abandons keeps runs onto the next, it's too easy to take them.

    They need to have a reason for keep holding. They need upgrade paths in the keeps you take over like GW2.

    i also agree.

    i played pvp for only about 2 hours but i instantly got that exact same feeling. Not only is there absolutely no strategy needed, but there is no point. This is the same problem GW2 and even Planetside 2 had. there is no "end" to the competition and no real incentive to compete. keeps just change hands whenever either faction has the biggest zerg and nobody actually gains anything. sure it's fun for the first day or so, but after a while it becomes pointless.

    it's like playing sports without keeping score.....completely kills the competitive spirit. sure it's fun for half an hour, but then nobody really cares and everyone starts doing something else.

    PvP is competition against other players. there needs to be hard rules, room for strategy, and defined winner and loser. It's how every male centered activity has flourished since the beginning of testosterone.

    Have'nt got a chance to try PvP yet, but keep in mind that it was in beta (and only for a weekend), so the incentives to repair and defend a keep are not very strong (you know it's not going to last anyways.. ), so I'm not sure how it will end up working come release.

    But I agree that incentives are needed. You need to feel you actually win something by taking a keep AND (most importantly) by keeping it !

    The greatest incentive I saw in any game was : Darkness Fall.

    Sadely, it seems as something the Devs are not willing to reproduce, for a reason that I just can't comprehend..  Well, ok, I have a small idea why, it's probably because of all the outcry that will come when a specific type of players would find out that they don't have access to ALL the content at all time, as they think they are entitled too.

    Edit:  Though, one thing I don't want is "balanced numbers" ..  That is supposed to be war, not an E-sport.. And there is no greater feeling than overcoming the odds on the battlefield!

    how is it not a battleground already? .....you que up for it. you teleport into it. you are part of predetermined side and cannot switch sides. you have to capture predetermined points. when you are done you exit and go back to the regular pve world...how is that NOT just a large, non timed BG?

     

    as ESO is a themepark i do believe battlegrounds would be funner in the long run.

    If not battle grounds, than something like Wintergrasp where the faction that holds the most territory at a predetermined time gets access to and extra dungeon or continent. there needs to be something very tangible that you compete for.

    Still how does that help when you need to x-team? (when its 75 vs 25 vs 25) it goes from pointless to fun if 25 and 25 join forces vs 75). For that to work you need to be able to visually identify an alliance really fast.

    That was some of the most fun, my server was dominated by Hibs, so x-teaming with Albs (I played a Mid) made RvR very fun and balanced.

     

     

    Each faction has a symbol and each symbol is one of 3 colors.......Its extremely easy to see who is who once you turn this option on..

     

    I really enjoyed this because instead of feeling like multiple guilds in the same alliance trying to work together, it felt more like one huge army all defending or attacking....very satifying

    Is nothing like GW2, nothing at all.  In TESO you have a war campaing, like Warhammer online were your faction goal was the enemy main city, to siege the enemy capital was needed a lot of communication, strategic and coordination from both sides, it was a  war campaign.  In TESO your faction goal is the imperial City, people gonna need really a lot of work, tactics and communication to reach that goal, is also a War campaing. In GW2 there was no goal, campaing or meaning, easy like that. TESO war campaing have an end, a clear objetive, siege the imperial city and be the new Emperor.   

    You played for 2 hs, and clrearly you dont know yet how Cyrodil works. The biggest zerg mean nothing, since a organized group can defend a keep against huge numbers. You even can hide and play a guerilla game with a group to cut off enemy reinforcements. But we still under the NDA so we can really talk about this yet. But they did really an awesome job with the PvP in TESO, where GW2 fails TESO stand.

    Well as long as it s like WARHAMMERs city sieges, it surely will be a success. Lol, one of the worst ideas WARHAMMER had was city sieges. There really wasn t much strategy involved in that either, leading up to the city siege fight itself, the BIGGER ZERG won.

    I was talking about the ¨war campaing¨, only. But WAR city sieges was a zerg fest yes, but just on the old days, at launch and a few months after that, at the end it was a 24vs24 intanced battle with objetives and stages, one of the best thing that mythic did.

    You guys are absolutely right about wanting to have a more permanent feel. At the same time the turn over is much less than gw2 due to the size and design of the map. I played a lot of solo behind the lines play. I always found 2-3 others in the same spot as me.

     

    The way i see it is, there's about 4 months of progression 10-50 AvA only. I almost look at it like planetside 2 or something.

    Actualy they will make a darkness falls type of dungeon for eso.

     

    Not sure why but i cant copy and paste the url but do a search on elder scrolls foundry there's an article about them saying the dev stated they will be making such a dungeon.

     

    Also lets not forget daoc didnt start with everything implemented right at launch either. Lets assume elderscrolls online will exist for a couple years. Lots will be added to pvp we can be sure about that. They didnt add cyrodill as an afterthought like most other mmorpgs do.

     

    People can moan and bitch all they want but hey if you prefer instanced arena style pvp then fine by me. It can have its charm. I prefer large epic battles. At least eso does epic pvp proper.

It would of been nice to have a sense of home feeling to keeps and other cappable places.

     Atm it justs a zerg running to 1 keep then to another. Guilds will cap a keep then go to sleep( or other things ) and lose the keep, what did they gain? what was the purpose? theres no meaning to it, whats the point.  You can hire mercs to put in your keep but they dissapear after 5 mins. you can put balistas and other siege equipment.. but they die if no 1 is on them around 3-5 mins.. theres no sense of progression.

     

    Am i the only one who may be thinking this?

     

    p.s im half cut not sure if this makes any sense lol

    My thoughts excactly. felt like GW2 all over again, zerg here serg there if you not part of the zerg dead in five minutes. Eveyone abadons keeps runs onto the next, it's too easy to take them.

    They need to have a reason for keep holding. They need upgrade paths in the keeps you take over like GW2.

    i also agree.

    i played pvp for only about 2 hours but i instantly got that exact same feeling. Not only is there absolutely no strategy needed, but there is no point. This is the same problem GW2 and even Planetside 2 had. there is no "end" to the competition and no real incentive to compete. keeps just change hands whenever either faction has the biggest zerg and nobody actually gains anything. sure it's fun for the first day or so, but after a while it becomes pointless.

    it's like playing sports without keeping score.....completely kills the competitive spirit. sure it's fun for half an hour, but then nobody really cares and everyone starts doing something else.

    PvP is competition against other players. there needs to be hard rules, room for strategy, and defined winner and loser. It's how every male centered activity has flourished since the beginning of testosterone. 

     

    You guys are absolutely right about wanting to have a more permanent feel. At the same time the turn over is much less than gw2 due to the size and design of the map. I played a lot of solo behind the lines play. I always found 2-3 others in the same spot as me.

     

    The way i see it is, there's about 4 months of progression 10-50 AvA only. I almost look at it like planetside 2 or something. 

    I think what people are missing is that this stress test let about 5k players into the zone rather then the 2k cap......Less people will mean it will take alot longer to take over a keep....ALSO less people mean more organized pvp

    There is progression: there are even frickin skill lines to unlock by upping your rank in your faction

    Zerg Only?:  Me and a small team kept Mines capped to keep certain keeps from being repaired and the lack of repairs made a HUGE difference.

    No reward for PVP:  The missions make you go out of your way on solo missions into enemy territory.

    It may be a little more zergy than expected but that's because we only had 2 days instead of a month or two.  Basically fortifying then moving on but keeping some people stationed at owned keeps will be needed.

    And there's public dungeons in cyrodill.

    For those who bother to PvP I see mostly:

    • zergs
    • small scale stealth/sniping.
    People leaving will make it very difficult early on - don't expect "realm" pride when 50% or 75% or whatever leave and home campaign numbers fall. Not the same as server mergers but still. One reason I see zergs dominating. 
     
    No clear race distinction won't help - trying to pick out the right target in a mass of people is never easy at the best of times.
     
    And I wonder how many gankers will be Imperials ...

    DAoC had a lot of good points - it was a "genteel" game from a different time lets say. It also had its share of problems.

    The limit on how often you can change your home realm - ex-DAoC players will know why. The mega-server tech will, imo, bring the "dawn raid" issue of there being no point in talking a keep and trying to defend it. It could also result in 24 hour guilds. From my experience in DAoC there are possibilities - I used to be in a 24 hour guild in DAoC  Mostly however I suspect it will be a reason not to look after keeps and simply zerg. 

    And - like them or lump them - zergs are the de-facto order of play these days!

    As to small scale stealth / sniping ... where these issues ever a problem in DAoC... cough, splutter. Well they have come up with a solution ... everyone can! There will be a gnashing of teeth however.

    Two final points. First DAoC was, in the grand scheme of things, played by very few people so not that many appreciate the good and bad points of the game - and it had both. Second Zenimax cannot "copy" DAoC - EA own the copyright. (Yes Rob Denton heading up a "new" studio to "re-vamp" UO and DAoC but still an EA studio - sink or swim imo.)

    How easy will it be  to identify enemies post launch in a 60 vs 60 vs 60?

    I mean you see a 3 khajits and each one could be in a different alliance....

     

    It's not hard.

    Do some people not read or something? One reason for holding a keep I don't see how anyone can miss is: no Auction House in the game. You wanna make money? You need to own (and hold) a keep.

    Instant incentive for crafters and PvE players to participate in some way to PvP and holding keeps. Some crafting components are unique to Cyrodiil and there are public dungeons as well. Before you say "But there needs to be incentive to hold teh keeps!!!" Do a bit of reading first please.

    I wouldn't really be surprised if the PvP of eso will be the typical respoint button spam and running back to the action few hundred times a day with no loss no risk whatsoever.

    -"No idiots go to that keep"

    -"Why should I listen to leaders if the leaders aren't doing jack S%$T."

    etc.

    I really hope they have a way to let people who want to try not feel like between the rants and the overwhelming nature of PVP in general in a huge zone, that there is a way to break people in. Maybe PVPers will feel like the only way to do that is to jump right into the fire and die and learn. Thats intimidating to a lot of PVErs I think. I always felt more comfortable in scenarios which were tightly controlled and easier to dive into without feeling overwhelmed.

    Any suggestions? lol

    Follow the zerg.  No skill required.

    Good laugh for a week or so then it gets boring when you realise it is just a zerg.

    PvP is just broken now a days period.  Too many people who got into mmo's for the pve and dont really get pvp or whatever the case is so PvP areas given to us now a days are lamed down versions of what they should be.

     

    PvP is never pointless in any circumstances if you can either loot players (stuff you are wearing could be bound so its ultimately not a huge deal). Also if players can build and destroy other player buildings with a proper rule set in place.

    When you can't do either of these things there will never be a point to PvP.

     

    P.S my favortite was how Meridian 59 did it, levels were hit points and you started at 25 and could never drop below that however every time you died for whatever reason you lost a hit point as long as you were above 25.  Talk about thrilling PvP when  a loss is to be had your adrenaline pumps.

    I've been in disorganized zergs and I've been in well run, organized zergs.  As in real life, success increases dramatically with quality leadership and the rank & file who fall in line.  Disorganized zergs pretty much get farmed by the organized zergs.  If you find yourself in the typical zerg (probably 90%) with a bunch of divas who prefer to do their own thing, you know you're in trouble.
