    So I was stood in my house, a factioner attacked me with a spell so I moved out of view and remained in my house sorting through potions. I did not have magic reflect on so did not deal any damage in return. 2 minutes later that faction character was ganked by non factioners about 10 screens away from my house. I received 12 points and 1000 silver. I presume that factioner also lost 12 points and entered stat loss?

    That's one of the reasons I'm no longer in factions. Guards, & non-faction players doing all the damage, and putting you in stat... maybe not so bad on a blue faction character though.

    But I assume, since you didn't have spell reflect on, only the new healing = looting rights, & Damage taken = looting rights change counted toward pvp.
    In this case it's the only thing that could have happened, unless you were mistaken about spell-reflection.

    This is exactly what needs to be fixed.

    Perhaps you all missed the thread below titled In concept - Virtue vs Vice by Mesanna...

    What will happen to the current faction system?
    1. All aspects of the current faction system will be removed.

    So lamenting that no one cares or asking for things to be fixed in the currect factions system which is going to be scrapped is pointless.

    Right...Removing factions and replacing it with a Capture the Flag mini game is exactly what everyone wants! I forgot. All it needs is a boss monster at the end of every cycle, and it'll be complete.

    factions aren't broke. It is just what the Dev's wanted so PvP would officially die off.

    Factions are broke and have been for years. The only reason anyone plays factions is for the easily obtained decent pvp gear.
    Factions are nothing but a chest thumping gankfest played by children that like to taunt people for being forced to go afk for 20 minutes at a time

    For once i actually agree with goldberg :)
    PVP as it is now, is gank or getting ganked,and all the ****talk thats goes on after it.
    Just get rid of factions, and give us some war-horses, and a way to earn (marks...the wow term) that we can buy cheap pvp items for (those items should not be a copy of existing items)

    Capture the Flag is a lot of fun, they just need to do it the right way. Making an arbitrary battle over a shrine isn't the right way to do it, IMO, but it can be done, and it can be fun.

    The main problem is creating a system that makes it fun on a sliding scale so that all shards can benefit. Unfortunately, whether you're willing to like it or not, that's going to have to require some AI mobs on smaller shards. I just see no way to create compelling PvP situations on shards like Origin, or Oceania, without some kind of AI incentive.

    I've heard way too many PvP types balk at the need of PvM to initiate PvP. The PvM doesn't have to be the main focus, of course not, but there's a reason why MOBAs are so popular. Simple PvM can add another element to a PvP battle which makes the "war" aspect more tangible, and gives the strategist something more to think about.
