Sincerelly,PvP events lost all credibility last months.No one cares anymore about it, alot of principals PvP event players stopped to show.PvP event title don't prove anything anymore now.There are useless because of the rules, the lack of balance of somes classes, the lack of knowledge of hosters (I'm sorry to say it but..), and useless because as I said before, none show anymore at these event because they are unfair, non sense and boring.Before I will say +1, now I totaly don't care. Not important.
I rarely agree with you, but you are completely right now, 1v1 events are anything BUT fun nowadays, and that's simply due to the broken rules and the incompetence of the gm's hosting it, because they never listen to what players have to say nor open their eyes and see how unfair everything has become. Said it before, and I will keep saying it.
I dont wanna blame gms for it since they are doing their best and already changed some rules, but its true that some pvp events need to be fixed. Its just not fair if always the same class wins the event in 80% of the cases and in my opinion there are very unbalanced fights. An example would be the nerf of 3.33 sins, limit the amount of sogs, and other stuff that im sure player can agree with. I agree with leizo that titles like the playoffs champion one lost all their value and that a lot of good players just gave up going to events as playoffs. So on topic +1 to the suggestion to make a first step to better playoffs, hope to see some other changes too though.
The reason many good players dont bother going to events are DUELS, i know too many people that dont go cause of that reason. The fight they would win 10000000000000000% they would lose in duel because of class disadvantage. Rules wise im laughing at stealth rule in 1v1 because it shouldnt be allowed at all then that u cant hit stake and such other events like 2v2 3v3 4v4 5v5 are fine i guess maybe just the SoG and stealth rule.
Venomancers can use every skill they have.. AD, Then Sutra, then Feral = Longer than Irongaurd.They ontop of it all can stack two brambles. (Blazing barrier+normal bramble) and then can still use bramble hood.Mystic's are a no brainer as well.
