I usually do not do this but as some have already noticed the current state of the game is not the way it should be neverwinter is a great game that has tons of potential and people knew that since mod 1.
the main issue right now and if this is not addressed soon the game could end up dying completely and that issue is PVP :
so my main arguments are and please bear with me :
1-in most other mmorpgs there is both a pvp and a pve aspect of the game which gives those games the ability to lean on 1 or the other depending on the quality of the new content added and we all know right now if a pve patch does not meet the community's expectations neverwinter has nothing to rely on.
2- the main thing that keeps most games is always popularity and sadly neverwinter does not provide streamers or youtubers with much content ( new content that people did not see yet ) for example both tomm and zariel are fun but how long and how many videos can the community make on these 2 dungeons in the end of the day pve is always constant it does not change, which leads us to adding a pvp environment so youtubers and streamers always have something to show even if it is as silly as 2 people fighting each other naked with wooden swords in a pvp area XD
3- neverwinter has long since abandoned pvp so giving it back a breath of life now is hard so what can be done is adding a mix of ( RAID,PVP,PVE)
adding a 2 team dungeon with pve content and bosses in it and rewards as well as choices that alter the result and the rewards ( we need to keep it fresh and different and that ultimately leads to more videos more exposure and yes eventually more $$$).
4- as you also may have noticed that we have a pvp boon page that almost 50% if not more of the player base have 0 boons in it for years i mean either do something about it or just add something else to replace it just don't leave content lying around, the game needs to make the most of everything it has to offer and it has a lot to offer if polished properly.
5- a transition phase will be in order simply because reworking the entire pvp system is a lot of work but it can be done later on but first introducing this new mix system of pvp pve and raid bosses makes the game more fun and gives the devs time to come up with other stuff the more fun and stuff people have to do i guess the less time they have to complain.
6- okay fighting each other is fun and let's be real most of the player base in neverwinter consists of dps players and most if not all are highly competitive so just let us go massacre each other instead of having a constant owl stare at the dps board ( yes i admit to doing it ).
7- I mean I don't think so far other ideas have paid off that much so why not try this one out it won't cause harm and if it fails at least it will be a fun and new way to fail but so far the people I talked to about this support the concept.
lastly I know this is not going to happen over night but I would like to hear the opinion of the player base and the developers about this and hopefully it is taken into consideration at least.
