In a world of gankings and rankings, the thrill of the hunt motivates thousands to attack fellow AFS personnel. Two pioneers of Tabula Rasa PvP have started a gamewide ranking site that will support tournaments and solidify bragging rights for participants. Kole and Warlaw sat down with Ten Ton Hammer and discussed this venture, providing insight into the world of PvP and explaining what Live Fire Sports is all about.
Ten Ton Hammer: I really appreciate you guys doing this. Let's just begin with your site. Where did you come up with the idea to put it together? Is it to jump start interest in PvP or fill in motivation gaps for the current system?
Kole: We hope to jump start people's interest in PvP and to keep motivating clans to compete. This all started out after I had offered to organize a group of referees to oversee PvP events in response comments on one of the community forums (Planet TR) complaining about the exploiting of PvP mechanics. Out of the blue Wardlaw messaged me about having the script for a PvP ladder and we just went from there. I guess our philosophy has been "Why wait for the game code to be changed, when we could make a change ourselves?"
