As you might have noticed that I am kind of cranky lately because of group pvp in Age of Conan. Seeing how I can either do eversomore minigames with randoms (but I am coming to conclusion I don't need that in my life) or nothing at all I have decided to call upon a friendly TOS and group up for some Bori pvp. And by that I mean that I have searched CE and it showed a group being there and since me and TOS didn't have anything else to do we have decided to go for it. First of all the new CE search mechanic (in case you don't know: you can search for players in CE only when being outside the play field) worked like a charm: we knew there were people in CE that needed killing and said people were ignorant of our presence until it was too late.
Both me and Koirein are pvp lvl 10, but since there was a full group in CE we have decided that it's ok.
Needless to say we have plowed the CE in few minutes destroying two altars and after brief carnage our opponents left the zone. Fun? Hardly. People do not farm Bori because they are good at pvp and they are not there to pvp, but rather to create optimal scenario in which they can get best pvp xp/tokens ratio for the time spent there. For them our presence was annoying as it made said "ideal scenario" impossible to pursue. The opportunity for pvp was highly undesirable. For us it also felt like half-assed content since Bori farmers provided little to no resistance and gave up pretty quickly. For me personally it also felt like I am being an asshole for making already boring and unattractive content even less bearable for those people. Is content for CE "gankers" about either making other people more miserable that they already are (if they hate Bori) or spoiling their fun (if for whatever reason they enjoy Bori) ? At very least people in minigames literally "sign up" for whatever they are getting. Ganking those people in CE somehow felt wrong .
Perhaps if pvp crafting is introduced then killing people in CE will actually have a valid reason other than just making people miserable.I will gladly revisit CE after the crafting revamp is in, but as it is now it is just weird.
