notionphil Posted July 10, 2014 Share Posted July 10, 2014 (edited) Tenno are mass murder machines, plain and simple. Much of our killing power is related to our ability to deal massive damage/debilitation without warning to large areas; via abilities or AoE weapons. However, as anyone who's played Conclaves can attest, it's a lot more fun to be on the AoE dealing side than the receiving one. And in conclaves, regaining energy without mob drops and auras is quite a challenge. However, in Dark Sectors, we may have normal, or semi normal energy gain, resulting in the ult spam we're used to in PvE. Simply put, AoE weapons and abilities make it far too easy to kill other Tenno. They deal huge burst damage over a large area, which is the optimal way to deal with a lightly armored evasive foe. Make PvP 50% More Fun :D Will individual abilities need balance? Probably. But in general, there shouldn't be any PvP abilities that can instantly disable an entire room full of player controlled Tenno with a click. So, before starting the fine tweaking lets start with a simple generality. Give Tenno a 50% resistance to AoE damage dealt by other Tenno, from weapons or abilities. The number may need tweaking (maybe 30%, maybe 60%), but I'm sure it needs to be substantial to offset the ease of dealing that damage. Reduce all immobilization abilities (Chaos, Vortex, Bastille, Tornado, Tentacle Swarm) to a 50% slow. These massive range abilities are a death sentence for teams of enemy Tenno, even in different rooms. Reduce all procs in severity by 50%, and make DoT procs never take your last 1HP. A single bleed proc from most weapons is currently an unavoidable death sentence, even through shields. Is that all? No. These are generalities to start a discussion, not taking every case into consideration. I believe that giving players a chance to survive procs and AoEs will make Dark Sectors much more entertaining and less frustrating. Thoughts?
