I just wondered why not leave the old system in at launch any specific reasoning other than a new system in the works, 2 months of ganking sounds kinda boring, the only reasons I have thought of were..

1) Did not want the old system to hype the new system in a positive/negative manner.

2) Could possibly affect vanarch system in an undesired way with new system in the works.

Again I know they were already in and will be soon but just kind of wanted some clarification as to why, I would personally rather have the option to use the old system temporarily at launch because gvg ganking got old within a few betas, I spend more time searching for people and watching them straddle that safezone than I do actually fighting. I think with the combat system Tera has the immersion to be felt in a small scale competitive setting would be Amazing. The most fun I had in the betas were some small group matches, why not give some more opportunities to enjoy those experiences.

Um... BG's are like the CSS Pub match equivalent nothing "Competitive" about it. So far (Maybe because I'm in a good guild) GvG has been more competitive and rewarding than any BG I have ever played in so far.

I didn't play KTera but it seem like the system was so broken they had to take it out.
Also won't effect vanarch too much, sure the first like 3 month or so will be vote only but than again i heard you can't even run for vanarch in the first 2 month or so. So probabaly not much issue there.

This doesn't even make sense to me. You can't control what the enemy guild does. Your guild being good is irrelevant. If they want to super zerg or hide in safe zones you can't do anything about it.

I don't need to control an enemy guild to kick there [filtered] you kill enough of there lowbies and they will respond in force, and when they do we will have a 30+ character battle, being out numbered and winning further proves how rewarding GvG can be. We have fought 15v30, 30v30, 50v70 and so on. I am also not saying we were always on the small end of the match up either, we bring everyone we can muster if you don't have that many on at the time that was your logistical failure.

What I'm saying to you is winning is fun and I can control the outcome a lot better if I have 70 people fighting with me instead of along side me that's also why I don't want BG's to have PvP "rewards" I don't feel like farming BG's because I "Need" this gear to stay competitive where it matters.

I hate BGs, it splits the population and completely kills off OWPVP. Why bother to run around high traffic zones when you can eat a sandwich, click a button and wait for a que to pop. So annoying, I utterly hate the BG mentality. And I hate the mentality of getting items from PvP.

Lets have a small scenario. Player A and Player B are both equally skilled and play the same class. Player A starts 5 months earlier than Player B. Player B now hits level cap and gets utterly demolished by player A. Is this far? NO thats not skill, thats items doing ALL the work for you. There is no competition here, its literally a guy with a toothpick fighting a dude with a gun.

Now if Player A and Player B level up at the same time and have the same gear, statistically they would have a 50% +/- (need margin of error due to lucky crits) win ratio against eachother. The only way to get a higher win % is to adapt and outplay the other person

uggg please don't even say the world BG on the PvP forums, people are too ignorant to know what it'll actually do to the game

BG's destroyed WoW's open world PvP because wow's entire game design itself destroys it, and instanced pvp only adds to it. if you want to be mad at why OWPvP doesnt exist in wow, ask yourself at this very moment in wow, why you need to leave town for ANYTHING. it's not about instanced pvp, it's about queing for everything from town, and grinding instances for money being way better than grinding in OW.
