Since the Faction additions were announced 3 days ago in the Five on Friday I haven't seen much discussion about them. You would think that the first faction additions in 8 years would be the hot topic of the weekend. It would have been a better idea to wait and release all the Faction details at once. At the moment these changes alone appear to completely miss the mark in trying to get players interested in Factions. Serious PVPers already have their suits maxed out in item properties. There is nothing of note except two items (new potions and enhanced bandages) which probably should not be faction specific to begin with. Why can a Faction member use a remove curse bandage but not a regular player. It doesn't make any sense. Announcing the changes in this way has taken some of the wind out of the sails when the "big" announcement comes and done nothing but distressed some players who currently don't see any reason to take part in Factions.
