The Creative Director of Elder Scrolls Online, Rich Lambert, has taken to the official forums to announce his plan of removing Veteran Ranks from the game. As things are not finalized, there is no information about how precisely the change will be. However, the intention is champion points will take over your VR level, while scaled gear will be also granted with CP earned.
So, according to the official words, Veteran Ranks won’t be available in the game. Here you can see the rough plan from Lamber to remove VR and apply CP to mark players’ achievements in PVP. Make sure that these changes are still in the early, non-finalized stages of planning.
1. Once you hit 50, champion points take over. Veteran Ranks are completely removed.
2. When Veteran Ranks are removed, any Veteran Ranks on your highest character will be converted into CP.
3. To get balance, the idea is making 10CP equal to 1 VR (so 160 CP will roughly = VR16).
For further details, 2.5 CP will be granted for every VR level players have earned on their highest level character, so is to say, 40 CP for a VR16 character. When it is converted, any player with CP less than their old veteran rank 10 will get enough CP to reach total VR 10. As an example, Lambert told that if a player is VR14 with 75 CP, he will get 65 CP (140-75) instead of 40, ensuring that he can equip any gear he may have. However, players won’t have 501 CP to equip the top level gear. New gear with higher CP requirements would be added into the game in the future, but huge jumps, so it is impossible to go suddenly from160 to 400.
Will this new idea fear new players to enjoy PVP?
When VR level is replaced by Cp, there will also be gear scaling that requires you to have X champion points. This aroused a concern from eso gold buyers that is if new players will be alienated from pvp group when they are weaker due to the lack of champion points. Some people think that getting Champion Points is way more grinding to reach any high amount, thus new players who stand little chance to compete with high CP players would leave fast. However, others believe that this is a good way to add requirements to items, and CP gain is fast at the low end. When the Champion cap is raised newcomers will get more CP even faster.
As far as ESO-GOLD.com is concerned, there is always some sort of grind in an MMO. If there is no way to improve a character, what's the point of playing? The underlying difference between VR &CP grinding is that the former is account wide instead of character bound (allowing you to play alternate characters easier). From this aspect, the plan to remove VR is not so bad. Still, there is no point to have too many discussions before things are finalized, so just buy cheap and fast eso gold on ESO-GOLD to enjoy new contents in Orsinium.
