I've gotten tired of the legendary grind so I tried Spvp and found it a great change of pace.  The main thing I feel it's missing is the ability to level toons and gain gold.  WvW isn't an option for me.  After getting Gift of Battle, I never want to step in WvW again, but I love Spvp and want to level my Engineer in it.

Is this something the community would want or only a singular case?

I do wish there were PvE incentives to play more sPvP so we could get more people into the scene. Hell if there were gold rewards we could turn that into gems and buy more paid tourny tickets roflmao

i think if there was a section on the trade broker for pvp items (bought and sold by trading glory), the ability to skin pve gear with pvp items (and visa-vi), ability to use pvp finisher consumables in wvwvw and the ability to exchange glory for badges of honor (and visa-vi).

it would give the wvwvw and pve community some motivation to play in the heart of the mists more. hell if you could trade tourny tokens it would at the very least give some incentive for wvw'ers and pve'ers to try and get the pvp daily if only to sell the token!

I wouldn't mind it. Maybe a little gold for winning a tourney. I would rather have more maps/modes though.

It's a good idea, many ways to implement it.  Gold rewards can work, just gotta scale it appropriately.  1-3 gold per tourney 1st place finish sounds good to me.

You serious?

Let's say you get about 3G per tournament if you win, which is very easy at the moment because loads of PvE'ers try to get the monthly. You can basically use that money to get gems and buy ALMOST 30 tournament tickets. So instead of getting 1 tournament ticket plus a gold chest, you think it's fair that we get like 30 tickets per tournament win now. That's CRAZY! That means that for every free tournament win, i can play 6 paid tournaments.

Yeah. PVP is really boring now. That is why no one plays it. It is not fun doing the same thing over and over again. I really do not think we will see any other modes but conquest for a long time. There is no fee so players can come back if they do add more modes. But I fear that the idea is the game must be balanced and the only way to do that is have one mode.

And yet biggest problems with balancing are caused by conquest mode. Huge amount of problems are directly tied to this mode: Stale and boring gameplay, bunker builds, Mesmer (easiest class by far in any game ever to play) in every team, etc.

There definitely should be some exp gain to PvP. Paid tournaments do indirectly give gold though from Gem to gold transfers.
