Nothing wrong with what you said, but the thread is about what I’d say negatively if asked.
If I thought the player was looking for real PVP competitiveness, this just isn’t the game for them. That’d be the negative thing I’d tell someone looking for PVP. In my opinion, NO GAME where your teams max out at 8 players, strategizing is severely limited by maps/intra-team-communication/match time length etc, and massive individualization of your “character” is conducive to real competitive PVP.
Look at the game-modes XO offers…
7 standing PVE raids
3 “light” PVP modes in Scrap/Wires/Batteries
two PVE missions
random very silly PVP brawls (mosquitos, artillery etc)
occasional teamwork PVE raids in seasons…
test drive area which is a mini-game all itself…
Bedlam which is almost a social media side of the game…
The only serious PVP aspects being CWs or maybe 16k+ PVP. I think that’s absolutely undeniable. I mean… I play PVP - typically below 10k - and it’s not CWs or the 16k+ stuff. Much of why I don’t play it is because the game is simply taken too seriously by many of those players. If/when I’m looking for that kind of gameplay, I don’t play XO. It’s just not as fun for me as the rest of the game.
It’s akin to driving my little 16bit car around that version of Sim City that allowed you to drive to satiate my driving game passions. Erm… no… that’s what Forza, Need for Speed etc is for. Sim City isn’t that game.
If a new player was looking for serious sweaty PVP competition, this game will drive them nuts. They either have to grind FOR YEARS or spend huge amounts of money to consider this a “real” PVP game. If they’re looking for that, there are much better options.
But, if any of that sounds the least bit appealing… and they like the idea of building a rig the way you build a village in Clash of Clans… and they like Mad Max, Star Wars, BattleStar Gallactica, and Blade Runner…
This game has a mix of all of that which is unmatched. It allows you to build, grind, have silly matches & maybe eventually get into real PVP one day if you want. And for players who have already done the grind or dropped the coin, then XO is a great option, I suppose… especially if you like the other aspects of the game.
If this post doesn’t make any sense, I blame all of you… and the sake I’m drinking.
