I have decided to not post this huge Faction system doc for the following reasons: 1) Even broken into sections, the posts and responses will lead into hundreds of different directions that it will be impossible to keep the discussion productive and on point. 2) I don't want to derail the Devs attempts to gain insight from the players 3) Right now the Devs are asking player feedback on stat loss, known issues and the new base designs. Lets do our best as a player base to give them as much constructive criticism (positives and negatives with thought out rationale) and actionable alternatives (with rationale). 4) The more I read from the players and Dev's the better I can adapt it to match what the community wants done and what the Devs want to do. Please give feedback in the following threads for: New Base Design Feedback Stat Loss - Pro's, Con's, and Alternatives Known Faction Test Issues When those discussions reach a ending point [locking of a thread, lack of new feedback and perspectives, etc]. Hopefully at that point the Devs will provide another aspect they want the players to explore and we can continue to aid them in their efforts to reform factions. If there seems to be a lull, and no new feedback is asked, I will post the first section of the Faction System to continue the discussion.
