Re: Megathread - PVP

★★ Apprentice

I haven't read every post in this long thread, but I am firmly in the camp of NO introduction to PVP in Anthem at any point.  I definitely favor PvE content/games and have been really looking forward to Anthem being strictly focused on PvE (among many other things!).  It's not that I am all anti-pvp... I just prefer other games for it, like Destiny Iorn Banner or Gambit or something once in awhile, when I'm in the mood (rarely).  

 

For all the people that want pvp in in Anthem... it would CLEARLY change the fundamental nature of the Javelins and the gameplay in PvE arenas for the WORSE... Bungie and other games having to constantly tweak/nerf PvE aspects of a game to satiate the PvP beast is always most unfortunate..(take a look at the warlock nova warp NERF in Destiny)

 

  and GO PLAY APEX LEGENDS IF YOU WANT PVP.  There are plenty of pvp only games.. and I am grateful that Anthem is PvE only Standard smile

I could see different "defend, or horde modes" be done but not pvp. Pvp just doesn't make sense with the gameplay and style.

Speaking from experience, PvP'lers are a fickle bunch. They stay only as long as it's fun and they can feel uber. They complain the loudest about any advantages one Suit has over another, and demand constant rebalancing & counters at that. They are also often the most toxic part of a community. I wish Bioware won't open that Pandora's box.


Wow, that has to be one of the most concise and well written descriptions of the basic problem w. PvP based gameplay I've ever read.

They do tend to complain... very loudly when things aren't going their way. Like babies with their binkys plucked out... Wink

No thanks! Just say No to PVP.

Let's do Anthem with teamwork and cooperation. Like the "stronger together" mantra. 

 

See everyone in the sky!

How about just a game mode where there are objectives to do, but teams that try to clear them. Instead of killing other players if Team A completes something they can send a big boss or something to distract Team B.

Much like destiny 2s mode but without pvp.

I would still love some pvp though Standard smile

Halo used to have a mode called FIREFIGHT with limitless waves of harder and harder NPC enemies. It was AWESOME, and a real challenge.

Anyone else remember the Lone Wolf at the end of REACH? That was some of the most fun I've ever had with a video game.

It would be fantastic if Anthem released a horde mode of some kind you could play solo or with companions... rather than puzzle-stupid order type end game content (like Destiny Raids) - which are needlessly complex and take too long. And people get mad if other players don't know exactly what they're doing...

 

Just give me piles and piles of enemies to kill... Makes it really hard and challenging.  NEED MORE AMMO !!

Hey yo,

 

Please utilize this thread for PVP related conversation, I'll be merging the other threads here as well so you can continue any ongoing conversations.

 

Good luck, Freelancers


Is this even a real topic? Or just providing one spot to vent.. Wait, I understand. Disregard.

Or both, endless waves and puzzles so we could choose. i like endless wave content in many types of games.

Endless waves could likely be a mini game outside content. Maybe a javelin simulator with a scoreboard that reset periodically (week/month) .
