As the title suggests,
I have been playing around with the thought of setting up a ground pvp tournament for the fleet and wanted to hear if it would be something that people would find interesting. Ofc i shall not be a participant myself so for those that have heard of my ground pvp madness rep u can rest easy.
Anyhoo made a lil dwarf poll that i would like people to do so that i know if i should proceed with the idea of just scratch it.
I had to vote no. Not that it isn't a good idea for the right people, but most people can't handle losing. The one thing I took away from the last War Games is that pitting fleetmates against one another usually turns out very, very bad. Even if the pvp system was flawless people would still be bad losers, but this system is so full of bugs, exploits and OP builds that most people want nothing to do with it. If you decide to go ahead, more power to you. Any fleet events are better than none, just know that anyone who goes in without already having a ton of pvp experience in this game will go away upset and hating it.
I have to agree with KG here. We had Ground PvP in the 4th Season of War Games and it so much of a desaster, that it was taken out in Season 5.
I am all for friendly pvp but ground is even more busted than space is. Good luck if you can find some willing participants.

I cant say yes to this BT, im really sorry
Well, I think it's a fantastic idea... Mostly because I'm not as concerned with winning as with improving. I mean, I do understand the two problems of folks catching feelings and ground not being super reliable - and a lot of the 'nays' are coming from older heads who've seen what can happen.
That said, I'd be down no matter what and am happy to brainstorm ways to prevent drama, if that's of any help.
Maybe before jumping right into a tourney you should give classes for those that have no idea of what to do in PVP. You could go over what counters what, tactics, etc. After ward have the people in the class be in the tourney. As for banning items, I am never a fan of that but that's just me
