SO MUCH FUN OH MY GOD

It's double XP weekend. Go level an AT and join us in our squishyness and heal-less-ness. Check your legacy devices at the door. :3

Well, you can still use them, but we'll probably go OH COME ON WHAT ARE YOU EVEN DOING.

    A shoutout to everyone who participated. I haven't had this much fun in this game since the last time we had AT Pvp pop before I left.

    Also, a special thank you to everyone for proving we can enjoy our pvp drama free and that the pvp aspect of CO should not be so easily ignored.

    Declaring war on Foxi because of her terrible opinion. MY ENTIRE SG (which is just me) is going to FARM YOU WITH DEVICES (Plasmite) so PREPARE YOUR DIDDLY HOLE

    no really though, what makes you say it's boring? :3

    Unrelated, we've had huge AT variety. I've seen:
    Soldier
    Impulse
    Invincible
    Scourge/Cursed
    Blade
    Unleashed
    Specialist
    Glacier
    Marksman
    Mind
    Squall
    Savage
    Night Avenger
    Devastator
    Behemoth
    Master

    Probably a few more I don't remember, too! That's 16 ATs, 16 different playstyles, as opposed to everyone's extremely samey FF PvP builds. C'mon, people, you can't tell me that doesn't sound appealing.

    Meet the Scourge/Void. Except that, well, yes pretty much impossible to defeat. And.. had to change from Void to Invincible just to rip the ******n Glaciers a new one.

    Lol both seraphim and my bro made AT's, plus Kingironwolf is currently silver. I should make one too. ;D At least there isn't all the glitches / exploits you get in FF when in AT pvp.

    Even though I was quite rusty, it was damn fun because people didn't take freaking forever to die. Haven't had this much in-game fun in a while.

    Man, if I had the hardware I'd love to do AT PvP videos, but unfortunately I just can't. 3 gigs of RAM and an onboard GPU... it just ain't happenin'.

    Any volunteers? ._. Hell, I could take demos and upload them somewhere for a proper video editing guy to play with.

    Video editing. Well I think I can take care of the whole thing. It will remind me of my old Battlefield 2 times.

    There still are some things one can do, but ruining the fun ain't worth it.

    The void...it's so wrong built...dies easily and kills with difficulty. It's needed nowadays tho, since all the tank ATs get a necrul elixir and are sooo hard to defeat. When I see a Master with an elixir oj my soldier, I just smoke nade them 'till they leave, been lucky snipin one or two tho.

    Dam, this is actually much funnier than I'd thought!

    I was gonna go savage because it generally looks incredibly funny but then I found out that I can only change to it with a free respec token. Thanks cryptic. -_-

    I'm getting my new PC soon which will be more than powerful enough to record video's smoothly. :<

    All this talk about legacy devices are not exactly inspiring confidence, so I'd like to propose a guideline.

    Don't use your legacy devices, but if you see someone using them, by all means go all-out with your legacy devices on that person! If they're just being a normal AT without using legacy devices, refrain from using your devices.

    Invincible gets an exception because they don't get Nailed to the Ground and are therefore allowed to use Omicron Induced Strength.

    You guys are making me tempted to roll up an AT and jump in (when I get another slot open...). One reason I've stayed away from PvP is cuz it currently doesn't feel very fun to me. A bit too competitive in the non-fun way. All min/max with powers and devices.

    I'll still probably get my **** kicked more than not, but if we're all AT's I at least have the notion that I've got a chance. That and this is feeling more like, "let's have fun!" than "see how my super-awesome-god build just kicked your butt?"
    100% of the world is crazy, 95% are in denial.

    no really though, what makes you say it's boring? :3

    archetypes are weak and one dimensional and from what i remember it just ends up being all the tanky ones beating on each other while the squishy ones all teleport around waiting for one of them to get bored and stop teleporting so the rest can one shot them.

    also I don't want to farm devices for my archetypes and you know that that is going to become a thing. there is no skill with at pvp... all it is is either being a tank or being the first one to push their attack while targeting a squishy... and now, having devices to completely overpower anyone who doesn't have any.

    oh, and if you really want to have fun play a squishy at without teleport. and people complain that you don't have freedom of choice in FF pvp, haha

    Hmm okay, judging without knowing is a bad thing. Behemoths can't kill unleashed Ats, unleshed die tomaster Ats, master ats doe to cursed/void ats, cursed/void dies to soldier. Can go the other way round too, depends on player. Tanks don't deal high damage, dps have low defenses, hybrids get a bit of both...it ain't as unbalanced as you'd think.

    Also, ff PvP...requires skill? Only to beat pps like green, Mona, xeiros or vixy. The rest is just counting. Count to 15 when u see MD and then use ego surge, once you see ego surge on your opponent use MD. You win. FF PvP gives more freedom of choice? I used to think that too, but no. The only real viable builds atm are aopm with str/con, quarry+TGM . Everything else just gets stomped in seconds by those/ can't deal any damage to kill those.

    Anyways, I see you probably just want to state a different opinion than what everyone believes, knows is true, so I guess I shouldn't take ya seriously.

    -snip-

    I completly agree with you, Foxi. It's the same thing in different ways when switching between FF and AT PvP.

    However, it's not what most of people, including myself, look for.

    I smiled when playing the Invincible and finding out the advantages of Micro Munitions over Chest Beam.

    I've had a great time discovering the specs my Void was stuck with, getting you to find interesting things to do with powers like Shadow Blast, something you'd instantly skip because 'lol useless', something you'd really surprise your ennemies with.

    People look for completly different gameplay mechanics, and face very different opponents. Being an AT enhances the effects as they're given less diminishing returns.

    People are also tired of nearly invincible people and requiring to pack ENORMOUS firepower in a way they don't like at all, in a style that disgust them to bring them down. In here, even the toughest Glacier, Invincible, or Master will eventually fall because they won't turn invisible while on 90% dodge with all their Active Defenses and heals ready before taking off after they've been nailed to the ground.

    I played AT pvp for a long time. I know a bit more about it than what you would learn after having done it for a few days. Its rock paper scissors with even less thought than you would get in other mmos.

    Just be glad you don't have any serious folks in there with you... even though I know that you already do. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    FF PvP is over for me. An OP build= 1 shot pps and tank 3 quarry TGMs in bash and suddenly, after 3 months it gets boring. Unless your theme is an anthropomorphic toilet from the qliphothic realm that became a millionaire and owns a jet in earth, then theme is out of the window. While ATs are kinda balanced..u actually have to pick opponents there. If T2 PvP was alive tho, I bet you AT toons would beat most ffs easily.

    On a side note: xeno left again? Pvpin' for 3 days or so and haven't seen him.

    I've been doing both FF and AT pvp for a long time. I've won as an AT more times than I can remember in either AT or unrestricted.

    By your logic, my ATs should have never had a chance.

    Don't knock Forz assuming there has been a lack of skill, I know just how hard it is to pvp with an invincible, and he's found a way to make it viable enough for him.
