I'm derailing cause there is little to be said about the current beta. I'm a broken record at this point, but I'll use bullet points as that seems to work. Restore Battleground Gear/Adornments and the NPCs that sell them. (only need to restore Overseer) Token and plat costs on Battleground Gear/Adornments set to 0. (Yes, FREE gear and adornments) Only Battleground Gear can be worn in Battleground matches. Keep the Battleground Beta quests/rewards in place. Keep Battleground Beta NPCs with PvE Adornments and Token/Plat costs. (Personally, I would reward cosmetic gear/items instead... but if PvE rewards are required to spark interest, then make it so... within reason.) Restore Battleground New Tunaria (Warfront), it was fun and contested combat is always great and something I would love to keep in game somehow. Add Battleground achievements and considering erasing them every few months. We've confirmed achievements copy back to live servers and EQ2 Wire can and is willing to track these achievements (just like the RTT Leaderboard) All these steps just require restores of already written code with a small adjustment here and there. I'm not a developer, but I want a solution that requires minimal dev time and I believe this is it. This will lock Battleground combat into something that was actually good AND it will never be broken again by new/better PvE gear introduced ever few months. Aside from a quick new abilities check, Development doesn't have to look at Battleground until they actually wanted to. With everyone having access to the best gear possible, they can customize their gear to how they want and most importantly... THERE IS NO GRIND! It's about experiencing really fun combat against actual players. The incentive if for the rewards (#5) and the leaderboard (#7). I'll say it again, Overseer geared vs Overseer geared combat was "decent". Can keep Blue stats disabled if desired or just simply look at the Prestige abilities for Battlegrounds. They just needed a quick adjustment, but that never happened. Even with them somewhat broken, the combat was still good, just fast when geared out in Battleground gear. I'll stop rambling.. I just want something simple that doesn't break 6 months down the road, which has been EQ's PvP lifecycle for about 10 years.
