    Imagine if you had a group waiting to bomb on your dead body.

    Last cycle, some AD killed me near nikel. I didn't rez, because I saw Saramis and his crew were in stealth. they were walking over to bomb the 5 or 6 AD dancing on my body.

    Those AD scattered like this:

    I consider that a faction win.

    I'm fairly sure this kind of mess will stop happening if the "someone is fighting here" crossed swords would only pop up if 15 or more players altogether are involved in the respective skirmish.

    On second thought, make that 20 or more.

    All other "battles" remain under the radar, except if it happens near a resource, outpost or keep. Say within tick range.

    Really enjoyed seeing a vid that actually shows what pvp is 90% of the time these days.

    If you were wondering, the other 10% is: Waiting in towns for other small men groups to show up, abusing low CP pugs, getting bored and trying to attack backlines of zergs and running.

    Yea, fighting NA PC AD usually gets me zerg ganked or chased by an organized group that will dismount their entire raid and chase 1 guy in the opposite direction that they were originally going.

    I just mess with DC or EP most of the time.

    As a solo and small group player one thing that always fascinates me about the huge zergs that swarm me is how many ultimates get dropped on me. I'll often have a couple dawnbreakers and an EotS in my death recap when I was caught entirely solo and run over by 25 people. Talk about overkill. Did your full raid group really need to drop half a dozen ultimates on that single solo player? I guess they just smell blood and eagerly swarm, always makes me laugh.

    I can say this though, you all keep chasing those tails you are making my job easier.

    Yeah, always amazed when your raid gets chased by that one or two guys halfway across Cyrodiil and then when you finally get tired of them attacking your tail and swing around and wipe them, they complain about xv1ing/zerging them. Well stop following a guild group if you can't stand getting killed by superior numbers.

    I actually hope they remove PvP from Cyro entirely and shift it over to fixed battlegrounds with a pre-determined group limit.

    As much as it is great to have a sandbox freedom, the standard battleground setup would provide a base-line to balance the game and give the development team the ability to control how much lag occurs.

    Right now it's anarchy. Till they give cyro over to pve and give us a structural way to pvp with a viable series of leaderboards, we will never see proper game balance.

    I really don't think there's one right way to play this game. I believe there are people out there who really enjoy the camaraderie of playing in large groups and the chaos of zerg v zerg fights. However there should be an alternative that answers the cries of other players, since some of these groups don't care about fair play (I'm not pointing fingers here) and completely mow down everything on their way completely overseeing the fact that they're destroying someone else's good time.

    90% of cyro pvp is reduced to keep battlegrounds anyway.
    If you compare the real estate of where players go versus what's built, much of pvp ignores a majority of the landscape. So we are already limited to a battleground.

    Additionally, you can have a 64x64x64 queable battleground that's structured with a loose team vs team play. That could be just as chaotic as current cyro but better structured with objectives that let's the dev team control the lag. It can also end and reset providing a fair beginning. It can also let different time zones compete as one removing "night caps" arguments.

    We don't even know how many players constitutes "pop-lock". At least this idea can tell players what they are getting into, numbers wise.

    I always just wonder: How is this fun for the Zergs? I did it one time and was completely bored. A lot of riding around and by the time your group gets to that one enemy you find he's already dead 10 times over. If you are a strong player your AP is diluted by the herd and if you are the herd you don't actually kill anybody and just siphon AP off of those who do.

    I just don't get it.

    Yea it would be too radical. Though here's why I think I'm right with full integration of battlegrounds:
    - how much of the current population actual loves the current pvp system? Many of us are asking for objectives and a fresh pvp update.
    - Is the current system inviting to new players? I'd say it isn't. And the ones that do enter, are looking for a fun experience. Being farmed by a giant zerg and then riding back because of an annoying system of keep bursts and horse rides is lack luster at best. You really have to be a masochist to truly love pvp in this game.
    - Can guild groups find competitive fights consistently? Most these days are still "tower farming" and fighting pugs. There isn't an incentive to form a pvp guild if you want to fight similar organized crews. It just isn't there.
    - if your group doesn't have a zerg, how do you find/fight other fair sizes? If your guild normally gets 15 players easy, but now you only have 5, how do you lead your men/women? Currently you ride them to places you feel might get them a good fight or zerg surf so you don't get steam rolled. Under battlegrounds, you can que up for a 4v4, 12v12, etc and actually fight the size you WANT.

    And under battlegrounds you can pull data in each playstyle size and see how the skills are performing.Right now it's all based on 1v1 and skills get imbalanced because they aren't tested in a controlled environment where you can see the consistent battles against the same numbers with the results on a public leaderboard.

    We are stuck with the game mechanics, so that means ZoS has got to do something to make the map somewhere I'd actually want to go outside the Emp ring.

    "Maybe we could add a fla..."
    And no ZoS, adding a flag somewhere just so I can spend 2,000,000 AP on a prosperous Maul of Cyrodiil's Light is not going to entice me .

    I had 10-12 last night and we seen a 2v2 going on. We left them alone blocking to show we were not interested in them. As we were walking away the EP & DC combo stopped fighting each other and tried to bomb us at the same time. We zerged them down & moved on. This is why a group dismounts and kills smaller numbers. To get respect you must show respect.

    I had 10-12 last night and we seen a 2v2 going on. We left them alone blocking to show we were not interested in them. As we were walking away the EP & DC combo stopped fighting each other and tried to bomb us at the same time. We zerged them down & moved on. This is why a group dismounts and kills smaller numbers. To get respect you must show respect.

    And those players who got zerged down shouldn't have a problem with that. I purposely will try to fight odds that are almost impossible to win just because I think it's fun. If I die, it was my fault for trying to attack a zerg and if I was in that zerg, I would have xv1ed that guy too.

    I found OP 2 times last night:
    1 - AD pushing ASH, many fights happening, some resource-back-and-forth and the blues finally make a push wiping AD, everyone res at Nikel and waits because we all know how this works....seconds later the DC zerg arrives and the AD zerg clashes with them, many "pocket fights" between the gate and Nikel as usual, the other ADs are getting lucky too and group after group of DCs are dying, one small group still remains and who is there getting zerged? Lol

    2 - On the stairs to brindle while we were trying to take the keep again, this time it looked like you were trying to avoid AD but got caught by surprise while we were climbing the stairs (farm side) to the keep lol

    Yes lol you got me by surprise at the farm stairs lol funny stuff

    Yes at Nikel myself and my two friends were in TS pondering why DC zergs the nikel porch. we were fighting off to the sides and back, we were eventually chased down in between the road and dolman a ways back. We had fun though had lots of good little pocket fights before that so that's all good.

    I noticed AD didn't have the huge numbers last night as they had the previous night? Did something happen? Or am I just imagining things?

    Yeah I saw myself in someone's video. The OP and myself were smart enough not to stand on the Ales Farm flag and eat a Haxus bomb!

    I hate to say this, but I think we are kind of screwed because in my estimation PvP has been like this in 1.6 once people realized with the CP system, dynamic ultimate removal, and constant nerf of counters, it was pretty much zerg or die. Or at least it was to the immobile templars and DKs. Now you sorcerers and NBs get to join the fun.

    We are stuck with the game mechanics, so that means ZoS has got to do something to make the map somewhere I'd actually want to go outside the Emp ring. And no ZoS, adding a flag somewhere just so I can spend 2,000,000 AP on a prosperous Maul of Cyrodiil's Light is not going to entice me .

    Some ZOS employee is probably thinking to himself... "So... how about a *training* Maul of Cyrodiil's Light?"

    This game was marketed on large scale pvp, I don't know if I came to game that was sold as large scale pvp and there was none I would be wtf, maybe sometime next year if they put the small scale in then those that seem to have a problem with large scale pvp in a game designed to have large scale pvp can find something they like, I have played enough small scale to last a life time and find it boring now.

    Maybe dueling is what solo players should be doing more of, no worries about a zerg there. /shrug

    game was marketed with what seemed to be hundreds of players flawlessly playing with no lag, when i see 40 people im lucky if i can grab 3 frames a second

    Please note: ALL factions do this, its not just limited to one. Also, this video is meant to be funny to display how silly things have become. This is meant to draw some attention to some of the problems in PVP but to do so in a light hearted way. In the end we all love this game, and im sure a little bit of play style diversity would be good for all of us. Good day!


    Should change the title of the video and this thread to "If you play in Cyrodil at all, you should expect to get zerged".

    Because solo and small group players aren't the only people getting zerged. It really doesn't matter how big or small your group is, you can still get zerged because of how the game is, unfortunately.

    WTB structured PvP.
