    Default My one and only PvP suggestion

    Howdy,
    First I must preface this post by saying I'm a non-PvPer. I don't like it. It gives me stress and I always feel bad if I up and kill some other poor character. When I have PvPed (not in DDO mind you) I end up letting the other folks kill me because I don't want to ruin their day. It makes me feel better that they feel better about killing me. What can I say, I'm a giver. Please note I said non-PvPer and not anti-PvPer. I used to be an anti-PvPer and wanted to see it completely removed from the game. I have since mellowed and as such just don't care as long as I'm not impacted by its existence.

    That said, and without further ado I present for your comments and criticisms my one, my only suggestion for making PvP better for all! *dramatic drumroll*

    As soon as you enter any brawling pit your outgoing text defaults to a PvP channel. That way players could opt in or out of the chat and players in all pits would be able to communicate.

    I know right! It's brilliant! It's the elegance of simplicity itself! Minuscule developer time, maximum positive return for all. You may wonder, "Where does this suggestion come from?" Well, I've seen and suffered the l33t PvP spam pretty much every time I return to to the Harbor for favor catch-ups but don't want to be forced to leave /general to avoid it. One of the real shames of it all is that too many times a question from a fresh off the boat newbie that hasn't quite got the hang of /advice yet gets lost in the mess. So there it is. My one and only PvP suggestion.

    ttfn,
    bitkaCK2

    For all the people saying they never see PvP spam in general chat on their server - I've played characters through the harbour on every server - Trust me every one of those servers had PvP spam all day every day*.

    I do not PvP even with friends.

    I have no interest in PvP whatsoever.

    Please give PvP it's own channel.

    *Except Wayfinder of course.

    I seen it on Cannith, Orien and G-Land. I haven't been in the harbor in the last week or two so maybe it's tapered off. It just struck me as a min effort max return suggestion that would keep it from ever happening and allow the PvP culture to express itself in it's own channel.

    /signed for PVP having its own channel along with lack of ability to communicate in other public channels until the PVP area is exited. Guild and party are OK but no trade or general.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    Great idea OP.

    Most folks that PvE do not want to hear the "pvp epeen battle cries" when they are getting ready for questing.

    Out of the servers I play on, Sarlona is the one where the hilarity ensues in general chat the most in regards to PVP.

    Scenarios of 20 seconds of combat, followed by 30 minutes of claims that the tactic used to win was cheap, are fairly common. It degenerates from there to insults about the other players build being gimp, and how they must be over 40, fat, and living in moms basement, and other such well rehearsed responses used alot in MMOs. If it had commercial breaks it could pass for reality TV.

    Give it its own channel.
