  1. 3 things: 1. Just reduce ET animation cast time to its original cast time. I don't want energy assault changes or none of that. I doubt this set can compete with psi melee in ST even if we revert it completely to i12. 2. Are MMs gonna get any help soon or not? LMAO I get it that blasters are Leandro's favorite AT but cmon mercs have been god awful for more than a decade. And from what I've read a lot of MM players(NOT ALL) have to solo because they get excluded or cant compete in late game content(not saying it's not possible, there are just a lot of problems with this AT in general). 3. Can we get new arena maps? The community voted on them almost a year ago and we were told "they are easy to implement". If they aren't then that's fine. But if it doesn't take a coder that long to put 4 walls around a pre existing map and add 2 spawns then what's the hold up. This would be so huge for us, just having anywhere new to play. We've been playing on the same maps since pvp started basically. I get it you guys are volunteers so obviously these are not demands and you can do whatever you want. But just wanted to throw these out here and let it be known what some of the concerns these communities have.
  2. In other MMOs yes absolutely. In this game it takes 1-2 days (like I mentioned in a previous post) not that long. I'm not trying to defend how this games gear system works or how screwed up it is to go to a zone and 80-90% of builds are going to be bed. I much prefer i12 style pvp that was using the same rules as pve. And if you wanted to find out if a build you are interested in is good or not, you can just ask the homecoming pvp discord or me and we can tell you where a build is good where or if at all (zones, 1v1, small teams, 8v8s etc). Also, there are communities specifically built for new players (SMOL KB: https://discord.gg/PMdDUyN) so if you are interested in pvp but may not have the perfect build, this is a good place to play.
  3. From what I remember, you needed to get the weeklies/dailies to get the proper gear. I think the gear had a stat in it that was just for pvp. But it was pretty easy to get all the gear, I think I remember it took 2 weeks or something. Not that bad considering how long it takes to get good gear in a game like WoW (months). Doesn't beat CoH though lol. I can farm a character, farm the resources, get all the accolades in 1-2 days at most(there are others who are WAY faster than me too).
  4. I agree that in general MMO pvp is not popular. That said, MMO pvp doesn't boil down to gear and tab-based RNG (atleast the MMO pvp ive played: SWTOR, WOW, Age of Conan, CoH), gear is a barrier of entry for MMO pvp but most people who are serious about pvp have min/max builds (this limits peoples interest) meaning the serious people are on equal footing and people must battle it out using game mechanics/skill etc etc. To say there's no skill beyond your ability to grind gear is just wrong. In pay2win games I'm sure that's the case but not in the MMOs I've played. If it just came down to gear I would've stopped playing A LONG time ago.
  5. I have tons of VODs on my youtube channel that show what arena pvp is like if people are curious. But yeah I agree with you, hence why I'm here explaining the differences. I'm used to it at this point because much of the CoH community has been pretty hostile to the community which was also stoked by devs like Castle as well which was really unfair given how large the organized pvp community was at one point (isn't that supposed to be good for a game?).
  6. These changes are really good, hopefully the HC team takes them seriously, I especially like your suggestions for mercs. The movement speed buff and stance changes would be pretty ground breaking for MMs in pvp. The biggest weakness of MMs in the current meta is their lack of movespeed, without any way to lock opponents down anymore because of the mez system that's in place MMs are basically useless unless they are speedboosted up.
  7. As far as the arena scene is concerned we police bad behavior, there really isn't much in the way of trash talk unless it's among the vet players but as far as trash talk towards new players or farming new players etc. we don't really tolerate it. Can't speak for zones since I don't go there much but I know a lot of the troublemakers get banned but overall zones are pretty toxic in terms of how people play (this is a given, zones are the wild west of pvp) and trashtalk. That said it makes it fun as long as you don't take it seriously (I like to go to zones just to watch the trash talk sometimes lol). People just gotta remember there are two pvp scenes happening on homecoming, the arena scene is pretty chill compared to zones.
  8. Indomitable pvp scene is a continuation of the live 'test pvp scene' and it's active with 4 vet teams and around 3-4 new teams. Not as many as the heydays of i12 but been stable for the most part.
  9. Just revert ET animation and maybe lower TF animation by .5 seconds or something. Don't give the set more AOE, don't make the set like energy assault for doms where you have to have some special energized circumstance to do a short ET animation. Seriously, just revert the ET animation. Would love to have another somewhat viable melee set in pvp other than super strength and psi melee lol.
  10. Just to clarify, there are no meaningful "exploits" that are going to do much for anyone, unless you mean base tp'ing in zones or something (zones are just not that fun in general IMO). And if you're talking about animation cancelling you don't NEED to know animation cancelling. I win matches all the time without using a single animation cancel. PvP is mostly about having a viable build depending for the format you're trying playing in. There's a lot of skill, knowledge and coordination that goes into pvp but if you're just starting out having a good build and showing up to Smol KBs is a great place to start, you can develop the other skills later. If someone wants builds or has questions Homecoming PvP discord is friendly and answers everyone's question. The Homecoming arena pvp scene is a continuation of the live test pvp scene which has been doing competitive SG vs SG matches since PvP started(for those of you who aren't aware how long competitive pvp scene has been around!). If you are new and want a casual pvp environment SMOL KB was made to get new people/PVErs into 8v8 arena pvp Discord link here: https://discord.gg/PMdDUyN If that doesn't interest you and you know what you're doing or just want min/max build advice or want serious 8v8s check out Homecoming PvP Discord link here: https://discord.gg/ACfXPxK
  11. Looks good! We've been doing something similar in the PvP community where we check spike damage, kills, evasion, heals, how many attacks someone used, how often people are locked etc etc. Here's an example Definitely made things a lot more interesting for me, I love looking at stats
  12. uh oh... a pvp thread... But seriously though @Croax or anyone who has any questions(for instance Croax you said you didn't know what was going on with that psy build) about pvp can message me here or on discord M3z#1843, I can help explain mechanics, why builds are made a certain way etc etc zone build/arena/small teams advice anything but fightclub really (I don't know much about FC but there are others in the community who do) I'm sad I never got to make the rest of the videos I had planned that were going to explain pvp mechanics(DR curves, animation based damage etc), build orientation and meta ATs.
  13. My point isn't that this server is more or less balanced than others. My point is if we can go roll a titan weapon scrapper and go 2 shot an AV why should we be concerned with this set. It's gonna be strong sure but not game breaking.
  14. Should implement it, let's not pretend this game is balanced lol. Would love to pvp with ill.
  15. Imagine feeling this strongly about something you have no clue about
