Apparently that coffee break (see latest app thread) for the goblins has turned into an extremely long vacation.

#997165 PVP range

I do not have a problem with PvP getting any updates, I just have to disagree that increasing the ranges is the right thing to do. This is the main point of my posts. Fix GvG, the arena or the ladder, if they are broken or even bring back a working version of PvP seasons that will make everyone happy.


I will re-quote myself in case it was missed. Almost every aspect of FS needs active players. HCS and the community need to come up with ideas to increase the activity in all areas.

Well, I'm not going to beat a dead horse.  You're certainly entitled to your opinion here, as are we all.  Hopefully Hoof can look at the whole matter objectively and come up with a solution that will please most everybody.

In all honesty, we are trying to revive a dying game. Increasing the PvP ranges or making it open will please one group of players while another group will get upset and might leave. It is impossible to make everyone happy, and I would think HCS would side with the majority. A simple question to ask, how many true levelers, ones that never PvP, not even for DQ or prestige, agree that increasing the ranges is a good idea?

You see, therein the problem lies.  So-called "true levelers" have historically tried to eliminate PvP from the game entirely, until it's become a watered down version of the fun aspect it once was.  FS was a PvP game from the start and many took any PvP activity as a personal affront.   What really irritates me is that the so-called "true levelers" get consistent updates and upgrades.  PvP gets nothing except the ladder which excludes that sector from the rest of the game (I ALWAYS believed that to be a bad move) , and the failed Seasons.  Everything else seems to be done to appease the so-called true leveler, and that has made a really fun part of the game something boring and stale.  Even Pillow fighting (GvG) has become almost unsustainable, and a source of complaints from the "true leveler" sector.  


PvP in all forms has reached its EoC.  It's way past time for new content for it.  It's blatantly unfair for one sector of the community to be ignored like PvP has been consistently for a decade.


Hoof, if you're listening, please, let's have some fairness back in FS.  Look at some of the ideas, such as Rye's innovative PvP GE event idea; revise seasons and bring it back for a second run; address the fact that many of us have few if any active targets for regular PvP.  This is just one of many suggestions, pleas or what have you just in recent times.  I know the app is important, but this is too...

Playing devil's advocate, but this would allow more PvPers to target you.

With all due respect dear, there's not that many of us left.  Those that weren't driven from the game in the early years, that have stuck it out, are sparsely scattered throughout the ranges, all the way to EoC.  And I can't tell you when the last time I saw somebody (besides me) in my bracket holding enough gold to target anyway.  The only other reason for PvP these days is vengeance, (and on the BB, levels don't matter as far as the hunter is concerned) Prestige, or that pesky DQ.  This isn't 2009-2010 when at any given hour of the day there are 1-2K players online and active.  On a good day (say during a seasonal event) 300-500 is a stretch near as I can tell.  


It's funny, when the range was expanded at 200+, I was almost there, I actually crossed that line when that was a new concept.  That was in late 2008 or early 2009 if my memory serves me correctly.....  EoC was definitely less than 1k then, and the ranges worked as hoof intended them to.  Now, EoC is better than quadruple that, and the active population is probably a quarter of the population of that time.  FS has changed, and EVERY OTHER aspect of the game has evolved and gotten updates at least once, if not more.  It's time for the PvP aspect of the game to get a facelift, too, so that this game can remain healthy.  


As always, this is just a silly old woman's opinion, but I don't think I'm alone in this......

So today, I am fortunate enough to have 3 targets that qualify for my 10 hit PvP DQ.  So, I will have to visit  each 3 times, and another a 4th.  Many players, especially those long opposed to PvP, see this as a personal affront.  Kinda makes the ranges a bit untenable as far as the DQ goes.  Now, this is just my opinion, but however it's done, the PvP ranges need an adjustment for the higher levels.  The current ranges were set in 2008, and at that time EoC was far lower than it is today, and the player base was way larger as well.  FS needs to adapt to current conditions, or I fear this aspect of the game will eventually be lost to us forever.
