With the coming device balance, which I am all for, I have hope's that more people will give PvP a shot. However, as many have said time and time again, all incentive to even try PvP was robbed from CO with the release of On Alert. Why? What was the reasoning? Acclaim is 100% out-dated now. There are only TWO (2) gear items that acclaim can purchase and both items are worthless compared to Legion gear. Before On Alert, the best gear was only gained via Acclaim and PvP participation.
Realizing that adding new PvP gear might be too complex for this
dev team, the easiest solution is to replace acclaim with Questionite and get rid of the cobweb-covered Hero Game Vendors completely. But this is the lazy solution.
I would prefer Acclaim was worthwhile, I.E. that there was gear worth obtaining with it. Some most basic ideas would be to make the current 2 gear items 4 slot instead of 3. Allow us to purchase R9 mods for high amounts of acclaim. Bring back PvP devices like the particle sniper rifle. Maybe secondary gear similar to Armadillo armor that boost penetration, crowd control/hold resistance, & stealth site that when combined boost defense by 25%.
Another idea, with the introduction of Justice gear, add a loot table to to the defeat of other players in Hero Games that has a chance to drop a new lockbox for it. Something like this would really help boost the PvP playerbase, much like it was a year ago before On Alert hit and killed the HG Vendor rewards.
If anyone has ideas to contribute, feel free.
EDIT: Acclaim is so neglected & worthless that it's not even listed on the "Currencies" tab.
