PvP Queues and Current Rankings

Hello everyone,


I'm Johnsonman07 and I have been active on and off with PvP for many years now.


After sitting in queue for days on end looking for 1v1 matches, it has occurred to me that I will never VS any highly ranked players.


Why you might ask? The main reason for this is the current decay system in PvP as once you have decayed to a certain point, you no longer lose ranking over time.


To put it simply, this means that people that have reached a high enough rating simply no longer need to play as they will be forever immortalized in the top 10 leaderboards as these problems feed into each other. If you can't VS someone highly ranked, you will never be able to push into higher ranks yourself with the current queue times.


These people haven't done anything wrong, it's simply a symptom of the current system. These are old players that reaped the benefits of Leo's daily when queue times were very manageable depending on what master mission was given for the day.


I understand that PvP is not everyone's cup of tea but if the decay system continually decayed unless you played even say, 1 match every week, this would mean that more people would join the queue to preserve their rank.


I have personally spoken to many players on both the US and EU leaderboards and majority of them don't play PvP any more though they're still some of the highest ranked players amongst us which is not a great look if people are searching for duels from the perceived best builds around which is exactly what I was doing several months ago when I was getting back into the scene.


I'm interested to open this up to discussion from other people and to hear of potentially any other ideas to increase the attractiveness of playing more matches. If you're anything like me, you press "b" and join 1v1 queue while you're mapping so you're never sitting on dead time though I understand this isn't possible for those PvP builds that can't do PvE content due to their niche.


Thanks for your time.

Anything GGG can do at this point to give the masses a reason to que up again would be good, currently pvp ques never pop.
I second this notion from PvP master Johnson
The strongest dagger. At 644 pdps Dragon Fang doesn't seem to be the strongest weapon you could have but looks can be deceiving.

THNAK YOU GUYS FOR THE SUPPORT

Mellontoss said it well in our discord:


'if ggg even does something like "each 3 month league at the end top 5 people get jet of the victor" or smth like that it would be good enough
to drag a lot of people in
especially at the end of the league
when no one knows what to do anyways'


I know people got upset with the leo dailies, being "forced" to do PvP content to get PvE rewards via crafting.


What if we made the the style of rewards not about winning?


"Play 7 matches or win 3". Sure, you'll get some people wanting to cheese the system but if you prevented log outs counting as a loss, some people might find that they even enjoy fighting other builds and there'll be more exposure from traditionally PvE builds doing the rounds. Thoughts?

More than hald of leaderboard did quit pvp.
It's impossible to solve problem ourselves.
GGG should reset per 3 month or decay everyday.

I agree with Bondisk, maybe a hard reset every three months doesn't go with standards core idea but decay that happens every day or once a week if no games have been played could definitely work.

If a football team wins the cup, they don't get to keep the title this year too because of last years efforts.

I concur with johnson et al. Implement regular resets, and a small mtx reward would really be nice.
Endgame in standard is honestly pvp, as johnson and the rest of the pvp standard community and I firmly believe.
Give us some reward for putting hours, days, weeks, month, and for some even years into perfecting our builds.

And give us some PvPvE.....

Let me say 1 more big problem.

There are some ghosts in pvp forum.
They haven't played pvp recently, like few months or years.
But always say 'Something need a nerf'

Discussion about balance is really important.
We should keep it.

But why even that fcks doing that?
They don't know anything.

PvP is currently at the back burner , game is heavily PVE focused.

One day, they might do something for us!
