Add a chat sign above pvp npcs showing how many players are inside.
Also, make pvp easier to get out of. Currently, there are too many steps involved just to exit:
- there's a kitty npc inside the arena, that takes you out to the pvp lobby,
- your sprite covers the kitty npc in the lobby when you spawn in so all you see is a repair npc,
- after being confused for a few seconds you realize you need to rotate camera to see the kitty npc,
- it asks if you want to join an arena room and lists all the rooms again, scroll all the way down to the cryptic "I don't want to die...." option and click that, and THEN you are released from pvp. Hardly simple. Very traumatizing.
Just make logging out/exiting to char select take you out all the way back to the RO world instead of leaving you stranded in the pvp lobby. Also give the kitty npc inside of arena rooms the option to exit pvp (skipping the lobby and going outside completely) as the first default option.
Pvp can be a fun pastime. It just needs to be a quick and painless, pick-up-and-play format.
