    This is kind of from another thread but it was revolving around factions.. A lot of people dislike going red, I love being red but I do not go red for a reason.. Sometimes I will go red by accident from killing off so many ass-hats who are in the game.. Every time people that go red who want to turn blue just sit as ghosts at the moongate leaving the game on 24/7 (game does not idle you out if your journal is active.)

    This is a really, really, tedious and boring way to burn off counts, and is not the punishment that players need..

    In another thread, I suggested a alignment score that ranges from a positive 100 to a negative 100.. Whenever you kill blue players your alignment score goes down and whenever you kill a red player, your alignment score goes up, a positive alignment score means you are blue, this means you can kill blue players while still being blue if you have a strong alignment, but you would still flag and a lot of players would attack you on sight....

    Players should have to actively go out and kill other criminals in order to turn blue, good deeds should get you there.. Not waiting it out, it makes no sense, and the idea of this alignment score is much more realistic in my opinion.. The ranging of the alignment score is just an example, maybe negative 10 and a positive 10 should be the highest and lowest it can go, cause if you had one of 100, means you could kill 100 people without going red..

    I think this would be a good racial aignment.. Maybe Humans and Elves could be allies and enemies to Gargoyles (Fel Only) in the new expansion..

    Note that these ideas are meant to make the game more hardcore but keep griefing toned down more as well..

    Eh. your idea would need alot more development it is full of holes and ways to
    abuse the system

    2 accounts come to mind
    pvp guild with good friends to help you get all the needed red kills in a quick manner is second way its going to be abused.


    i agree the way it is now is kinda dumb but it is better then the guy with 693 counts to his name getting blue again sorry he is a murderer and should be punished with confinement!! Fel = Red Jail get used to it do the crime do the time!

    Interesting idea but as mentioned will get VERY abused.

    In all honesty, I think the current system just needs ONE tweak:
    - Murder counts ONLY burn off if there is real activity during that 40 hours of burn off... ie some honest keyboard/mouse activity on the players computer:lick:

    As an example, the hosers that sit at gates 24/7 burning off counts would get not counts burned off under my system.:spider:

    But the guy out in BFE casting on mongbats WILL burn counts.

    Sure this would lead to using a certain helper program but it would be a bit better than the current system.

    Maybe add in the stipulation you can't do it in houses either:scholar:

    Perma death for reds that die would fix exploits from duel accounts. Specially if reds were unable to use soul stones.

    There is no real discouragement for "asshats" that choose anti social behavior in this game anymore, like there was with stat loss and "vendor banishment" under the old system.

    If you don't like being red, don't kill people.

    Then you do not know what being a "red" means.. Felucca is not some jail or prison for your character when it turns red, although that is an interesting way to put it...

    Reds are murderers, brigands, outcasts, etc..... They did bad deeds, but they have not been put in jail for it... This is why I do not agree with the current system, there must be a way to redeem yourself and gain positive alignment.... Like I said there should be a max on how low and high your alignment would go.. So that guy wouldn't have 693 counts, he would only have like -10 or so..
