Anyone interested in war?

    While on an outting on Atlantic, i found a large group of people who were warring guilds, and found this was a lot of fun. It was something i haven't done in years, and really enjoyed it. I was posting this to see if there would be anyone interested in warring on chessie? This means, that you would be attackable by any opposing guild, anywhere you go. This means anywhere in Tram, Fel, Tokuno... In my own opinion, i find it fun as hell to have to be on your guard wherever you are...WITHOUT the pain of Stat Loss!

    Please feel free to post here or PM me to help get this setup. Ive already got a small group of people who are ready to fight whenever we get some allies/foes. :thumbsup:

    yes warring guilds are a ton of fun, i used to love order/chaos years ago wish they never got rid of that... but if i warred a guild i would want an all out war, meaning no rules.... expect no mercy, expect to be rez killed, expect my thief to be hidden next to you while you're shopping in luna for me to steal an item you buy from your pack.... if those rules are all accepted them i am ready !

    And they are allowed. Thats the point of war my friend...Anyone wanting to join will know this..thats why im sure that people would only want to put select characters in the warring guilds, instead of using a large already assembled guild. Ive got a group of people who are ready for war whenever we get an enemy.

    One thing i would like, is for this to be slightly even. I dont want a guild of 200 vs. a guild of 15. The one thing id like everyone to work together on, is making the guilds close to even. All the unevenness would do is ruin the fun for the guild of 15.

    PM me if your still interested. Id like to get this going soon if possible.

    I like wars too, and I concur with the standards of the fight.

    However, I am bored with the concept of "random fighting".

    I would submit to the floor that wars are fought for purposes and to achieve objectives.
    Having said that, I would submit that there be various conditions for victory beyond simple body counts. To ensure balance, each side should have similar numbers total. Perhaps, multiple battles ocurring simultaneously. Though, it is up to the "Generals" to decide how many are allocated where to fight. Forces could not be reallocated until battles are resolved.

    For example:
    Vesper:

    Key locations to allocate forces:

    Docks
    Bank
    Western Road into the city.

    The Attacker must approach the docks by sea, Defenders must prevent landing

    Bank.

    Attacker may recall or gate, Defenders must repell assault

    Western Road into city.

    Attacker approaches from the Minoc Moongate, Defenders must prevent attacker entering the city.

    Generals from each side apportion the forces to each location. Forces cannot move to another fighting area without first achieving the victory conditions of one of the sides. Each fighting area must have a victorious side and a defeated side before pressing to another fighting area. If defenders flee from the fight area, it is a yield to the attackers for victory.

    Something along those lines. At least for me, wars are better fought to achieve goals rather than random fighting and trying to keep track of who killed who, and how many times I got killed vice how many folks I killed.

    War/Battle locations can be changed up to account for environmental effects. Some locations allow fielding, some may not. That way, tactics and techniques will have to be varied; which in my mind establishes true talent in PvP. How well players can adapt to changes and function as a team, if you will.

    Hope this helps and isn't construed as just a long babble.

    Funny you should mention pirates , we're pretty pirate ourselves. War }--D
    'Are Believe in Whale?'. We have 6-7 actual members , the rest are alts.

    Great idea , perhaps get people out of the guardzone long enough to have some fun.
