GU 38 - Visible NPC Combat Ratings...

    Interesting how this first appeared in the survival feed.

    Now they are going to display these for all NPC's in GU38.

    So this begs to question.... does it seem far-fetched that combat ratings will soon be visible on players?

    I'm not saying this is a good or a bad thing by any means with this question.... simply bringing the topic up. Where it goes from that? Up to you all.

    Thoughts? Opinions? Details?

    I hope it doesn't or I may not have been able to beat AnB and nexus the other day. My cr is only 93 and I'm sure if they knew at least one person would have tried to kick me even though I was the only healer.

    1. To people who run with friends n league .. this wont matter
    2. Death to many pug groups

    With cr requirements going as high as 103 for alerts like smallville n ace chem ...low cr players would be finding it harder to get into pug groups to run content

    The...heck? That's beyond carrying or soloing, that's up to masochistic boredom levels to try and run those with 103. If they do this they shouldn't have killed walk-ins.

    Pretty sure it's an urban legend.

    I'm glad they're adding it.

    I really don't care if my CR is visible. As long as you can queue for the content and do your role, I really don't care what your CR is. If CR was made visible, it would have a negative impact on PUG groups. People already ask for insane CR requirements for almost every instance, I see this as adding to that insane requirement.

    Being in a league, it wouldn't impact me at all. I'd just know those that meet the minimum CR requirements would have a heck of a time finding a group in LFG.

    if you read the patch notes again, it is clear that this was done so players wont just attack random mobs because it didn't differentiate between the random new lvl 30 bounties or brainiac mobs which should be more than a new lvl 30. and this corresponds to all Npcs in the game, there is no way to tell if an npc is higher cr than you are since it all shows 30. so this should fix it. and no i hope there wont be visible cr on players

    At 103, they can walk into the instance and do it alone (well, Ace at least. Not sure if that'd work for Stryker's with that freeze thingie. Guess you'd just have to be careful).

    I also practice this. I have never asked for CR in an LFG for new group creation or when trying to find a replacement in an ongoing instance. In fact, we were LFGing in a raid for a troll for the longest time and we finally had someone respond! When he joined, someone said something about his low CR, but the trollers figured out their vits, I gave my vit, and said "we will teach you grasshopper" and off we went and finished the raid. Also, I don't always inspect, but when I do it's to find out if the person might need some soders (for free). The toon could be on hard times, or whatever the case may be, but there's nothing like a nice top off from a soder to smooth a run.

    I always like to give my vit as a tank. I think I have it up to 800 now so it's less fun than when it was lower :)

    I can see both sides of the coin on adding CR next to the names of player characters. It's a good idea because the "30" next to your name is utterly meaningless at this point. Might as well replace it with PvE CR to the left, PvP CR to the right of the name. That would make some fresh level 30s pause before attacking a high CR player who's farming some bits or running a seasonal.

    On the other hand, the moronic, awful players in this game would just use it to discriminate. ("You're 99 CR? It's impossible to beat Wave unless you're at least 105 CR!")
    I think the negatives would outweigh the positive on this one. Probably best to just leave it on npcs.

    Even if they decide to show peoples CR, there is no way of knowing if that is the CR of their current role unless you inspect. I could be full 92 gear and have a CR of 106 in Healer gear but only Item Level 85 DPS gear and my CR will still be 106. So, if I go into a group as a DPS, my CR will show 106 but I am really like 99 for DPS.
