PvP Series Introduction: From Zero to Hero
A few days I wrote “When I Grow Up, I Want to PvP.” With the advent of Season 2 Ranked PvP, I decided that I should stop being a scaredy-cat and “just do it,” as commenter DualBlastersGuy (and Nike) wrote. Obviously, I’m not going to go straight into Ranked PvP and get face-rolled. I’m really quite a considerate player, and I wouldn’t want to bring down my team just because I wanted to go in without any gear/skill. However, since the season has started, I’m thinking that the good players will probably not be in regular PvP, which gives me some time to practice in regular PvP with mostly others that are also not ready for Ranked.
Every week I’m going to write a new post about my noob/fail experiences in trying to be a legitimate PvP player. I define legitimate as having a full-set of PvP gear, and the skill and confidence to roll through daily and weekly PvP missions with a high success rate. My original goal was to be able to participate in end-of-season rewards, but that was probably a bit too lofty. In order to get better, I’m going to try to PvP every day. I actually started yesterday (Thanks Daemon, Myscar, and Zissou), got into about 4 warzones (I think?) and lost them all. Sorry to bring you guys down! I will try to keep track of some statistics of my win/losses also.
Additionally, I still stand by my belief that Bioware could put more attention on the PvP players with more content and better quality-of-life benefits for them. I feel like I could have a bigger voice (Hello, Bioware!) on that if I PvPed more and had my own original opinions.
To me, it feels like your parents giving you lots of yummy, freshly baked PvE cookies all the time, whereas they give your siblings a stale Twinkie (is there such a thing?) maybe once every year or two. I couldn’t feel happy with cookies if my sister was only getting a stale Twinkie. If you have no idea what I just said: I couldn’t feel as happy as I could be with new PvE content if I knew my fellow PvP players were getting the scraps.
Now that I’ve written this, I’m going to get ganked every time I enter a warzone. /nervouslaugh
