    People call Crystallized an AP farmer, and I have spotted them at a resource farm or two, but to their credit, I haven't caught them farming nearly as much as many of the other big EP guilds causing havoc out there. They actually do push and attack keeps quite a bit, and with plenty of allies that would split the AP as well. I think it's less about farming and more about playing a whole dang lot and being fairly decent as well.

    edit: By the way, this is the title you get an achievement for killing, right? Finally.

    I have said it multiple times and I will say it again. They get the job done in completing missions and getting massive amounts of AP. Hats off to them.

    On EU we have Great-Dark-elf whom should hit Grand Warlord anyday now. 2nd in line is me who just reeched Warlord and below me is Iniation who just got general.

    Thanks for answering. I knew there was someone over there really close. It's kind of odd there are three players that high ranked on EU and only one on NA, not sure why but interesting.

    Most of those who were even with crystallized AP wise left the game a little ways back. Also most of the guilds that during the peak of pvp and ap farming aren't really around anymore. Just a few left from each of those guilds. Crystallized is pretty much the only one to keep a full group of players who can complete objectives and obtain obscene amounts of AP on a daily basis.

    I used to be of those who had the uper average pvp rank.. now im 2nd highest in EU. We lost many players too. I belive pryda would have been 50 quite some time ago.. believe he was colonel grade two a month after the game came out, if even that.

    No they didn't. Casuale is playing WoW, Metal Dimmu is playing Dark Souls, fixate quit the game entirely, and Nicole is banned.

    I had the pleasure of running with Crystalized and his group the other day. It was amazing how they fearlessly and easily mowed down guilds and groups with much larger numbers.

    They will be shocked when aoe caps get changed... they will need to play better when that happens.

    How would you calculate this?

    In the first weeks getting AP with vamp was far easier than it is now. Camp removal reduced the AP gain further.

    Actually looking at the scoreboard from this months TB and compareing it between NA and EU, NA players seem to have made more AP!

    This. At some point when half the people in pvp are ex-emperors and grand overlords, I'm curious what zos will do to make it not so ridiculous. Maybe a better system than just, they with the most points shall win?

    grand warlord is an alliance rank obtained by much PvPing. killing is a large part of it, but not the core of it.

    Just because you aren't or never will be as good as crystalized doesn't mean you should degrade him. Also, stop saying THE SAME FREAKING THING on every thread, we all can read but we disregard it as you have no knowledge of the game or any sort of brain activity at all

    yes, I will never be as good as pulse chimps at lagging out the server on purpose, lol. That's truly skillful.

    Also do you think ZOS will or should do anything special when the first person gets Grand Overlord?

    Offer them a job, they clearly don't have one and their exp from playing would be valuable.

    Is there a real world employment analogue of "fire ring, fire ring, streak, batswarm, fire ring"!?

    Its honestly a sham title. Heck even how emp is decided is a sham. AP should be used to buy gear and siege and that's all, it shouldn't count for a hoot otherwise.

    The top players should be decided by K/d ratio with a set amount of kills required to make the leader board.

    Some of the most skilled players in this game will never rank under the current system which really is a shame.

    Hell just myself and 1 guildie together killed over 200 people the other night, about a 50-50 split in KB and you could count on 1 hand how many times we both died combined yet the current system doesn't reward smart skillful play, it don't even reward playing the objective and holding the map.

    Most, NOT ALL, but most on the top of the leaderboards just hole up in resource towers, spam aoe and bats to rack up AP, its really a pointless system.

    Look at guys like Sypher, your telling me those guys are better them him? That's just foolishness, its nonsense. Again, the current state needs to be changed, it doesn't reflect the best players accurately and they shouldn't be aesrding emp titles earned in such a manner. As much as I loathe COD at least your ranked by K/D not by how much exp or money you earn.

    I think it should be more than just k/d. Maybe like tiered system with k/d first, then damage done/received, then healing done, then keeps defended, scrolls captured, keeps captured, Ect.

    And each score would assign a point value to your overall score so someone who just healed a ton would still have a chance for example.

    Regardless of how, I think most of us could at least agree it needs to change. I mean the whole point of pvp is AvA, but then they just use a system that depends entirely on ap farming and doesn't really encourage or frankly require even acknowledging the whole point is to take and hold keeps? Those two systems don't really go together.

    And I'm not really sure what they intend to do a few years from now when half the pvp base are former emperors... I mean, I kind of takes some of the impact out of it. It doesn't really feel like they thought that out much, the long term sustainability I mean.

    Someone should start a former emperors guild. See how long it takes to get to 500. Right now we're getting at most like 120-130 a year. And that's assuming they don't reduce the two 30 day campaigns down for a second time around...

    I agree for sure. And I warned them repeatedly about this during beta.

    Good thing is for me I don't really care too much and I can still log in and enjoy myself.

    If they ever do release an Arena, perhaps we can get skill based leaderboards there.

    Regardless, this is a big achievement that took a lot of work, so congrats to Crystalized.

    Can you point to where I said that there was anything wrong with being an AP farmer? And seeing how he is the 1st to achieve it, does that not automatically mean he is the best at farming?

    As for the jealousy thing, believe it or not, Alliance Rank isn't a blip on my radar. I work, have children, a hot wife (Hell, you'd be jealous of me if you saw her as I'm punching well above my weight) and numerous other hobbies and toys outside of ESO.

    I just cracked Major about a week ago with my main and I was stoked with that achievement, might not be an achievement to some around here, but to me it was pretty cool and I'm happy with that ;)
