I really do not know if it is the nifty (long overdue) faction changes, or if it is just the cyclic nature of Siege. Folks are playing. Stealthers are in plain sight. Siege is coming alive again. Just saying... I do realize many of the faction players on other shards are wanting the easy button back. Why would they not? It is easy right? I just want you Devs to know... not everyone on Siege is in factions. Not everyone is a fighter, PKer or PvPer. I am sure you know this... My guess is less than 10% are really into PvP. Many know how to fight or escape... that is Siege. You see... if you let the factioneers have vending machine artifacts on Siege it is like letting factioneers fight and PK anywhere on any other shard. I know the risk vs reward thing... Most factioneers on Siege if they are PKers or "PvPers" *coughs* do not care if their opponent is geared up as well. So you see... Siege is a different world. I ask you consider this before you "fix" factions. Thank you.
