Open RvR Ruleset Change

You've given us your feedback and we've listened! Open RvR servers will now allow you to play one tier below your current level without turning into a chicken. This will allow you more time to experience the PvE content of the first 3 tiers, and it also adds more danger to the mix.


Not exactly what I want, but it looks like they making changes to the ruleset based on feedback. They still are ignoring Lairs in tier 1 areas that are for rank 40 players and the pain it will be to get their if you are a chicken.

Well it is a good sign they're listening to feedback, though I wish they could think of something else. Now you'll get gankers that you don't have much chance against, and still not be able to do PvE in any tier you like. Either just make it completely open or only turn you into a chicken when you target an opposing player or heal an ally.

A friend of a friend (heh) is in closed beta and says he was trying the Open RvR...
Apparently, it's an all-out gank fest. You cannot quest at all, and ALL objectives are ignored in favour of killing other players.
Sounds miserable.
I suppose it's fun if the only reason you play is to kill another player...and don't care if you "win battlegrounds" or complete any quests.

While it's not the perfect solution everyone was hoping for, as people have said, it is a start. It shows that they are listening to their playerbase and gives the idea that they will continue to adjust the game after release to eventually make things work for the majority.

It won't be that way for long. Fear not. There are too many places to hide in this game. The gankers will get bored.

It's definitely good to hear them responding to criticisms.

I was doing a PQ in the greenskin area earlier, I believe it was Ironclaw Camp, and we were on the stage where we had to wake up 25 lazy Ironclaw goblins. A single Dwarf Ironbreaker held us up for about 4 minutes because he pulled one of the lazy Ironclaws preventing him from moving to his scripted destination. All I could do was spam heals on the Ironclaw while it slowly whittled away the Ironbreaker. No one could stop the Ironbreaker from griefing because he was unflagged. Ha the IB had a healer with him he could have griefed us all day without any sort of retaliation.

I don't care how bad you want to pretend the ganking is on a pvp/open type server, nothing could be worse than someone griefing you and you being unable to do anything about it.

Hopefully Devs will realize this and have something done about it in a future fix/update. Hopefully enough people will submit a feedback report on it so that it is sufficiently brought to their attention.

Also, hopefully enough people won't get this idea and grief other players with it :(
