Funcom has detailed some of the changes coming to The Secret World’s PvP in the game’s Issue #6 patch.
Players will now share XP for kills made by the group, but as a player dies the amount of XP they are worth per kill will diminish to prevent griefing–this rate will reset once a player enters a new Battleground.
PvP XP will unlock Battle Ranks which will reward players with new outfits that can be worn outside of Battlegrounds, but offer no advantage to players. Funcom is also allowing players to sign up for multiple Battlegrounds at a time to solve matchmaking issues.
Issue #6 is due to release later this month.
