I know I'm late to the party regarding gun licenses and pvp grade but thought I'd add my 2cents
PVP Grade: Didn't like it and glad its not here. Why? Because before, most people used to pride themselves on having the pvp grade star next to their name, to show off how good they were in pvp. It became a constant pride thing where players weren't playing for fun, but would purposely work towards getting more stars, getting a bunch of kills ie 10-0, rage quit, join another game, end game with 2-0 (all purely camping and cheap tactics) then have their KD +12-0. Took the fun out of playing against them.
Camping and cheap tactics is different when their purpose was different, ie annoying people, thats how they play vs getting higher pvp grade
Which I might add, love the deserter feature- rage quit if u will
Also this prevented 1v1's because people would see ur grade then just leave, being afraid of getting bodied
Gun license: i feel we need back. What was it? For every kill u get in pvp u earned license points. With those license points, u add them to your weapon license of any weapon type u choose, ie using any gun in pvp, wherewith at the end you've earned a total of 1,000 license points for example. Using those LP, u level up your license by investing 200points into your rifle license to get from say, level 1 to level 2. As a gradual process to reach level 3 rifle license you'd need to put in 400points in the rifle license, from which I'd have a remaining 400LP to choose whether to level up my sniper license or another weapon license, etc
In order to use a higher rated weapon, you'd need to have the right license level for the right weapon. Ie you need to have level 100 rifle license to use LCP (OP Rifle)
By taking this away, the game is allowing players of any skill level or exp level, to use OP weapons, as long as theyve acquired it through farming boxes, spending real $$, etc
After farming for said weapon, part of the fun was getting enough license points to use the weapon. Which made it more rewarding to use it. Now, its as easy as spending real money to buy it and then just using an OP weapon
In the old MA, grinding for LP was a pain in the a. But it was rewarding: farming for the weapon, farming to use weapon, enjoy fruits of labor. Doesnt have to be as hard as it was before but surely a feature to have?
Any player could farm for the weapons, create a brand new character with OP weapons and pubstomp in newbie lobbies. That prevents new players getting into pvp and eventually into the game.
Which brings me to my next topic: newbie lobbies. Is this gonna be up at launch? Hate jumping into a match only to find 5 pro players vs 2 newbies who dont know what theyre doing. Give them their own lobby where experienced players cant get into and vice versa (unless of course exp players have a new alt...cant stop that)
TLDR: dont need pvp grade. License points we should have back. Give newbies their own area to pvp
