    How interested are you in PVP?

    Hey everyone, I made a short survey to gauge interest in Pirate101 PVP. Please fill out the poll and add details by posting below if you can. I'd really appreciate it

    How interested are you in PVP?
    - Very interested
    - Somewhat interested
    - Not interested

    If you are interested in PVP, what is the main thing you like about it?
    - The drama
    - The strategy
    - Other (please explain)

    If you are not interested in PVP, why?
    - Just not the kind of thing I'm into
    - I've tried it before (was once interested) but stopped because it was a bad experience (please explain if you can)
    - I used to really enjoy it but the game just doesn't have enough support for it (no spectator mode, no bugfix support, no helpful tutorials, no updates)

    The strategy, definitely. Especially when I PvP as my main Pirate, which is a Swashbuckler.

    Other. The drama is actually my least favorite part about it. Also, for some tournaments on Pirate101 Central, the scheduling is kind of hard and troublesome. But other than that, I really like PvP but rarely make time for it.

    Re: How interested are you in PVP?

    I am not interested in it because "most" players seem to not handle it in a mature fashion. I like to build friendships in game and it seems liek while pvp can build friendships it also seems to break down community a little.

    How interested are you in PVP?
    - Very interested
    - Somewhat interested

    --------------------------Not very interested
    - Not interested

    If you are interested in PVP, what is the main thing you like about it?
    - The drama
    - The strategy

    ----------------------- I'd be more interested in the strategy if there was a spectator mode to watch, and maybe even commentary from someone like Stephanie's videos, where those of us who aren't in the Brawlin' Hall all of the time could observe and learn. When I'm playing against another pirate and just hoping not to lose too quickly, I don't feel I learn anything or that the other pirate enjoyed the match very much. PvP'ers sometimes seem very surly to me because I haven't encountered very many who chat much.
    - Other (please explain)

    If you are not interested in PVP, why?
    - Just not the kind of thing I'm into
    - I've tried it before (was once interested) but stopped because it was a bad experience (please explain if you can)

    -------------------- While it wasn't a bad experience, it also wasn't much fun the few times I tried it. I feel like it could be more interesting, but my play style isn't very conducive to the adversarial nature of PvP to begin with. I'd like to maybe see more pure strategy and less benefit to OP gear and companions could change things up -- where no gear, no pets and random crew or even no crew were modes that could make things more interesting.
    - I used to really enjoy it but the game just doesn't have enough support for it (no spectator mode, no bugfix support, no helpful tutorials, no updates)
    I didn't vote in the poll because I wanted to vote between Somewhat and Not Interested -- a Not Very Interested option. I don't mind at all reading about PvP strategies and bugs, etc., so I am slightly interested, if that makes sense.

    Re: How interested are you in PVP?

    I'm not interested in PvP, mainly because I'm a pacifist xD

    In my mind, the idea of fighting/playing/competing against other players just doesn't sit well with me, which is why I prefer PvE.
    That, and also the fact that I feel like I'd probably stink playing against others; I'd rather defeat mobs of mindless AI lol

    Worried

    Re: How interested are you in PVP?

    Not very interested in PvP for a couple of reasons.

    1.) As you told me, not many people are doing it, and waiting for a match can get quite l time consuming, especially as you progress. I have to have immediate or near immediate access to fights cause time is a precious commodity.

    2.) This is just a mentality that some non PvP players have adopted, but it has to do with weapons. As of now, If you are a new-pvp player trying to be a champion, you have to face off pre-existing champions who have access to some powerful champion weapons that you do not have. I am sure there are some very smart players who can overcome this, but not having access to champion weapons can put you in a disadvantage or limit the strategies you can use against more powerful champion-leveled PvP players. As I said, this is just a mentality people have that discourages them from trying in the PvP place. I am not sure how credible it is as I do not PvP.

    I wouldn't mind if there was like a separate champions league [which is where champion weapons can only be allowed] with cool rewards, though probably not gear or item based powers/rewards as this would lead to the same problem I described above.

    3.) Sometimes certain players make the PvP community seem a bit toxic, but then again there are a lot of toxic non-pvp players too. I guess its just more annoying when you face off with toxic people and their gangs.

    4.) Pay to win. Idk how credible this is anymore but yeah, just another mentality people have.

    Somewhat interested. I'd love to spend more time in Pirate101, however the lack of team matches or a queue system makes it difficult for me to engage in playing it.
    Standing around the brawlin' hall and all its drama isn't a fun experience for me.

    If you are interested in PVP, what is the main thing you like about it?
    Strategy, creating builds, having a good time in Pirates which is missing attractions to make me log in.

    If you are not interested in PVP, why?
    The brawlin' hall doesn't interest me because of the atmosphere and the fact I can hardly get a decent, fair match.
    I tried Ranked a few times but multiple factors turned me away from it: the insane wait for matches, the toxic behavior in many of the few active players, the dominating builds and setups such as tree summons, Nausica+Boon, hidden, among others and the RNG factors.

    This is pretty much how I felt about Wizard101 PvP a few years back, it was a mess and impossible to enjoy. Some updates over time led me back into it, the Critical modifier and turn-based 1v1 were the main ones... Pirate101 needs some changes of its own. And it desperately needs a queue system, unlike Wiz I can't even get matches for fun in here.

    not interested, mainly cause with my class (witch) i'd be better off going on a different class lol. also the pvp community being small puts a learning curve on the game in general, imo. when most people, ai isn't as smart as the usual person in general.

    Re: How interested are you in PVP?

    Very Interested because this game unlike Wizard101 has somewhat balanced pvp where players
    can have fun and show off skill of their play . Wizard101 lost its pvp balance when the jade gear first came out and there afterwards got worse and worse to the point now where you can be taken out by your opponent on the first turn without you ever even getting to play anything in that turn . For Example one critical hit from storm or fire can kill you easy on the first turn and if you going second you just dead and never get to play any spells- (depending on what school you using with how much health ).Pirate on the other hand is much more balanced with its turn system , powers , spells ,gear and you get to react to opponents moves .This one thing this game has going for its self and i hope ki dont diminish it with poor moves like this spring season rank rewards .

    Re: How interested are you in PVP?

    I'm somewhat interested because I love a good challenge in PvE and the most challenging PvE is PvP. But based on what I've seen it seems, PvP heavily offensive and not really well rounded. Then there's also the players. Since this game is turn based, there's going to be a lot of time to "chat". I probably should give it a try one day to get off of the stereotypes, but as of now there's not really a need. (Oh and also ranked PvP requires membership/crowns, I think that's actually the bigger let down).
