Separate Small Scale and Warbands

Post#1 » Fri Jan 27, 2023 1:34 pm

I and many other players do not enjoy the warband AoE meta and prefer to play in small parties with people we know. But currently the game is barely playable in small scale due to the either organized or pug warbands who simply jump on you as 12+, leaving you no chance at all and giving you a nice teleport back to warcamp until you end up against another or the same warband 3 minutes later. It makes the RvR tedious and boring to play, unchallenging.

Currently also, there are constantly 2 RvR Lakes open, with pretty much all the time one being blobfest, the other being dead empty. So my suggestion would be to lock one RvR Lake for Warbands only, and the other for solo and parties only. This way, small scale players can do something else with their playtime than being a free kill for any random zerg they encounter while roaming.

Hi Mvl130,
I can understand and feel your feedback. I think the easy solution for you/your group would be to switch to the "dead" zone. Because this zone is often not really "dead" but you will find individual players and small groups who roam there or run supps.
Another alternative is to wait for WE or WH at the usual gank spots. It usually doesn't take long until 2-5 of these nice contemporaries unmask themselves to kill a possible victim.
If you know where to look, you can still have fun as a small group today. You have to stay away from the blob and have to live with the fact that not quite as many coins/reputation comes around as if you would running with the zerg.

Nah, RVR just needs to be reworked, as stated many times before.
Bo´s need to be made more important so blobbing as 3 warbands acually punishes you that way. Nowdays as a 6 man in RVR you basically have to zerg surf or you get zerged down yourself. Not having certain renown specs available like on live doesn´t help either.

As much as it is a dangerous topic, lotd seemingly fixed the issue by creating a gameplay where smallscale groups can play on their own rules. And it was initially made as a test, to check various mechanics to potentially implement in orvr. So there are at least some efforts made to rework orvr, you just have to wait until the current big rework (ability system) is finished.
RoR doesnt deserve being taken seriously.
