Does anyone actually enjoy OPR? Or is it just a quick method to participate in group pvp? I personally am very bored with the game mode.
New world is sitting on an incredible open world environment and its pvp assets are sorely undeveloped. Could we at least have some clues as to what is in the pipeline? Honestly losing a reason to log in at this point… I love the game, the aesthetics, the class system - I’m finding it hard to keep doing the same pvp content over and over again though.
OPR is the only replayable source of group PvP so it doesn’t give the players much of an option. Which makes me sad to see. The fact that cross-server has been delayed is now also used as an excuse to not develop new gamemodes.
Personally I have not played OPR in weeks. I’m silently protesting lack of PvP updates with my absense.
i log in looking for something “fun” to do, queue up OPR, end up having a positive KDR and doing “well”, then alt f4ing halfway through because its not actually fun anymore for a myriad of reasons culminating in a terrible experience with or without friends around to increase fun factor
Based on the interview I watched today with Katy and Dave, the understanding I got was they were focusing on more open world pvp changes to forts and various control points and that it’s not on the roadmap cause they can’t commit to a date on it, but it could just get added at anytime it’s ready. That and cross server opr.
I used to. I would play OPR daily for hours. It was fun but unbalanced. I had hope things would improve over time, but they never did and games are still often 1000 to <500.
The reasons for lopsided games are obvious:
unequal distribution of key builds (melee and healers) on each team. Melee and healers determine who wins OPR.
pre-made groups vs non-pre-made groups
Unequal skill level and/or gear scores between the two teams
#1 is the primary reason OPR matches are lopsided most of the time.
In addition to the bad team balancing, now people have flocked to bows/muskets and do dumb things like musket squads team-shooting people. I use the musket, but, wow, the stuff people have been doing is ridiculous. I get trolling once and awhile with some friends, but people seem to do every day for hours.
Anyway, the current PvP state of new world is horrible, and the lack of planned PvP improvements in discouraging.
I don’t think New World is worth playing as a PvP game anymore.
Usually 10% (at most) are fun games. Most are one sided beatdowns with one team camping oppponents respawn really fast
Theres no criteria apparently, they grab the first 40 and go, which is really stupid
There should be solo queue/team queue, Max X weapons of each type (say, 5 total per team), at least that
Plus New maps, modes…
Oh it will spice it up alright. There will be at least twice as many premades taking dumps on solo players and thinking they’re good for it while the solo players have to be ranked against premade pub stompers lol
