    I only played release WoW and then quit after dominating the sheet that was WoW release PVP.  Slaughtered noobs by the hundreds outside the alliance capitols and the entrance to blackrock.  The ground had a carpets of skeletons. Of course that was all pre BG's, pre-arena's, pre- expansions etc so I can  intelligently comment on end game WoW PVP.  It was very low skill ceiling

    Camping facerip is its own reward.
    I am not sure that i actually like facerip. But he has my respect as a player, not afraid of a challenge and accepting those even when he is at a disadvantage.
    Facerip is a much more iconic player in this game, he doesn't try and claim any sort of fame because of completely pretentious forum posts, unlike tapout shirt guy(aka VN), but because of his actual presence in the game, both good and bad. 
     
    There is no other reason needed to camp him, to claim otherwise is the obvious cry for attention that is the hallmark of tapout shirt guy. There is no easier example of a painful desire of attention then bragging over people wasting time looking for him, even to go as far as to use a well known players name and attach himself to it.
    Pretty funny to laugh at. But its nothing new, easily to become bored with. VN in a nut shell.

    Wow had the lowest skill ceiling of all time. It was and is a mass market blubie game.
    There is zero risk.
    I beta tested and played wow at release. I could and would go into Tauren Mill as a night elf rogue and kill everyone, by myself, over and over again. I would kill two or three people. Eventually get killed and go back and do it again. It was pointless, and i could grief everyone and had absolutely no consequences.

    Because no other game had the threat of real loss. Who cares if you lose an arena game and dont get enough "points" you can just play another.
     
    Spent MONTHS building a city, harvesting resources  and You CARE if you lose. You cannot compare that feeling to any other gaming experience.
    How many people called in sick to work or school on a day you knew you were being sieged?  People don't do that for instanced pvp.

    BraveSirRobin got a reaction from mythx in Ace's vision for Siege's   
    Disagree with Soulein a bit.  Since the defender already has the advantage and if he gets to set the siege start time I'd say let it go til the tree or stone drops.  If it gets too late for the defender and he has to go to bed he should have set an earlier time.  Persistence and endurance should be rewarded.

    Well I am old and slow of reflex.  If skill is only judged by my ability to jump spin while circle strafing and keeping my reticlle centered whilst i pew pew pew I assure I will be sadly lacking.   However I was very good at the "skills" I listed above, I haven't yet played Crowfall beyond running around my EK when I first installed it but I plan too after the summer is over.

    There are a million games out right now that reward mechanical skill from your oft-mentioned WoW to all the FPS shooters to infinity.  Shadowbane we'd all of course grant didn't have that kind of mechanical skill ceiling.  SB however rewarded planning, subterfuge, treachery, relentlessness and most of all brains more than anything before or since.  Real game world consequences were the other truly defining thing about SB.  If you disgruntled off the wrong nation leader, talked smack in the forums, stole from or ganked the wrong guy there was a very real chance you as a lowly peon in your nation could bring on a huge war that resulted in your empire being burned to the ground city by city, night by night.

    I think my guild burning down your repair forge and bank before the siege so that you cannot repair or get at your banked items easily is skill.      
    I think my guild dropping structures on your advancing formation scattering you for easy pickoffs is skill.                      
    I think getting a stealther into your pre siege rally to see what spec your guild is bringing to a fight so mine can get a counter to it is skill.  
    I think making better toons that are vastly stronger as a complementary group and maybe not so much solo is skill.  
    I think planning out a brilliant strategy for a siege is skill.  
    I think the guild that can best get on target and stay on with the chaos of battle to win is skill.  
    I think the guild that can most effectively use their collective abilities and powers to immobilize and debuff their targets is skill.  
    I think the guild that can most effectively remove debuffs and CC on their own players is skill.  
    I think the guild that builds the most intelligent and complementary groups is skill.  
    I think the group that most effectively resource gathers and crafts their gear to maximize their group abilities is skill.
    I think the group that can most effectively get their dead back to the battlefield, buffed and ready to fight the quickest is skill.
     
    As long as Crowfall adequately rewards those things listed above I don't tink any SB'ers will complain.

    My guild at the time of WoW launch, Talons of Chaos was filled with top tier SB names most would recognize from the glory days of Vengeance.  Eastre, Exarch, Rolp, Sabotage, Lotus, Kraxx, Dru2 and more that my aged brain forgets.  We played WoW for 6 weeks to two months and dominated any and all combat and it was a server so populated it had queues to log in that could stretch hours.  WoW PVP was boring, easy and pointless.   All the builds were the same, there was absolutely no consequences to to anything.

    See how silly that sounds to claim to have won WoW after only playing the sheety launch version and not being around for the changes, expansions and evolution of the game?  Your short time at SB's launch gives you zero credibility to talk expertly about a game that had many expansions, rule changes, advancements, server versions etc.

    In 15 years, I've never seen this occur. Prove it or retract it.
    Carebear. Spite is reason enough. No wonder you couldn't hack it in SB.
    As usual, you miss the point entirely and take it back to WoW.
     
    And zero strategy, which again is the point.
     
    I asked you more than a year ago to post your gamer name in your "skill" games so we could see your record there. I'm still waiting. Put up or shut up, imo.
