Posting in BG forums as I only play BGs....
PvP in this game is laughable. What I absolutely "love" besides proc sets to which I get in the moment, is phantom damage, screen shows that player uses one ability, but on death recap it shows multiple abilities. On screen it looks like he uses one ability, swinging his freaking sword up and up, dead, recount => multiple abilities. It's not only happens with two handed, as I've seen sorcs put out absurd amount of damage too, on screen it looks like they having a seizure. Nightblades hit you from stealth, hit you once or twice and you are dead, recount => multiple abilities. And it's not lag, as I don't lag in BGs ever, cudos for that to ZOS on that part.
Now proc sets, this is my favorite. Hit light attack to make proc, maybe add that stuff that places tether with the use of ONE ability, and GG... I'm sure it takes a lot of skill to do that, but I prefer to use my abilities instead of relying on random damage that will kill for me.
Some players are very tanky, yet they dish out so much damage that it takes very little time to kill a player, other party just doesn't stand a chance, even fully buffed and spamming heals. I'm all for tankiness, but if you are more tanky, then you should deal less damage, not to have it both. Yes once in a while you meet a player that is speced full tank and does really small amount of damage, and it's alright, one player shouldn't be able to bring tank down, that's how it should work.
Which brings us to TTK. I'm playing glass cannon, and by that I mean I run only DPS sets, light armor, but I have 20k+ resists buffed, 15% damage mitigation bonus(18 if I slot one ability) I use hots, but all that is nothing, if you hit the "right" group so to speak, some players kill you almost instantly, and I play mag necro, so no streak for me to avoid elder stamina online players. I am not against dying or loosing, that's not what grinds my gears, what grinds my gears is that I have no chance there, no counter play. And there is no gear that will save me, as I tried to put on gear that was brining my damage mitigation up to 25%. Still got hit for 3-4k and more, which is absurd.
Now I don't always loose of course, I've done my share of 15+ kills in BGs, but what I noticed some players just don't stand a chance, it's two blast bones, spam my skull, some light attacks in between => dead. Now that's no fun at all, I like challenge, and I doubt someone queued in green gear. Now when there is equal footing and I have to use more then two abilities, now that's fun.
And my last point is, I've been doing PvP since my first MMO, there weren't many, but I've seen stuff, that's not counting MOBAs. And what I see here is just rofl fest so to speak, TTK and balance is atrocious, proc sets are showing what it means to be "skilled", and phantom damage that is not shown on screen having its way. I was watching PvP videos on YouTube, and it's just not fun, it's usually one player running around rofl stomping everyone without any challenge, I don't know what's your definition of fun, but it's not mine...
So I've said it before, and I'll say it again, PvP here sucks. Thanks for reading if you got that far
