TERA PC - General Discussion: A message for the PVP community,

As you all know, the battlegrounds have been suffering exponentially in these last patches, either due to lack of motivation of the players or because the rewards are really a waste of time, for this reason I ask the entire PvP community to make a petition demanding PERMANENT changes in daily rewards and items from the bellicarium store. If we don't demand changes, don't expect GMs to give the solution because they will not, remember that we are entitled to demand what is fair for us, since many of us spend money on the game and this company eats thanks to it.

The main issue is that there can't be PERMANENT changes because how devs have been changing things in the past year. However we can demand our Publisher to provide better rewards for PvP content that allows their comunity to catch up in gear, accesories, ep, advancement skills and character exp to veterans and have a more fair ground to be competitive in the game, making "PLAYER SKILLS" actually what gives you the edge and not "A WALL OF HEAVY GRIND AND RNG".

The only idea I get is flooding their support tickets with these demands and see if it works because so far forums are ignored from EME staff. These forums became more like a comunity forum handled by players at this point. On Discord they will ignore most of the people and will focus only on their regulars over there and hope to have luck to not met one troll that keeps flooding their chat and what you wrote gets sinked in the flood.

Player Council over there... its more like they only exist to pass EME voice on Discord to the forums and you will only see a couple of them active on Discord anyway.

At this point at how things are I wonder why they even keep these forums where they have shown us its not of their interest.

I understand what you say and it is really frustrating to see what once was a fun game, it became a grind and rng fest with P2W events, the worst of all is that nobody says anything.

That event of the 50 runs in grid and shorehold was good yeah, but I don't applaud them because it is something they do once every 100000 years .... What a frustration I feel with the administrators of this game...

I'm sure all the reward numbers/requisites for rewards/punishments can be tweaked by Devs.
It doesn't take a 14 yo to know that just simple incentives will bring back dead part of the game (PvP aspect).
People play games grindy games mostly with the notion "Am I rewarded/compensated adaquately for my time spent"?

I looked at my bank, found something from 4-years ago, 70 sea chests. As I loved to spam unified gear BGs or CS back in the past.
It was a daily thing for me shouting "3-1-3 !
So that's 70 strongbox keys that I suddenly have now, or ~500k gold.
Imagine each round of playing CS nets you 7000g (cap at 1 reward per char), lol. The whole server will be popping it daily.

TLDR: increase incentives for PvP, so that people actually queue for it again

I'm going to lock this thread because, as the Forum Rules say:

"Petitions are explicitly forbidden. Please note, calling a petition a request will not disguise its true nature."

That being said, the PvP situation gets brought to EME's attention almost every day these days and things have been done and are being worked on to try to help. The good response to the recent event was noted, and they know there's a desire to do more like that to keep people queuing. The issue with gearing is known, including the fact there are certain items you need but can only get via PvE, and a solution is being sought for that. Not all problems have an easy solution because part of the way the game works was designed purposefully by BHS, but conversations are always happening. It's definitely not forgotten.

There are a bunch of threads already around on this topic asking for more constructive changes, so I'd ask that you post specific suggestions in there. Believe it or not, things have changed recently and there's an increased ability to make changes, but please make your suggestions practical and well-justified.
