What a mess.. We asked for a reason to be in Factions.. And they made them OPed like nothing else I've seen in this game. At least, if those items are used to attack non-Faction characters they should be INSTANTLY unequipped. That, or give us items only non-Faction characters can wear to balance it out. No, scratch that. Just forget the items. GIVE THEM REAL REASONS TO GO IN FACTIONS INSTEAD OF BLACKMAILING THE *REST* OF US TO EITHER PARTICIPATE OR BE LEFT M*I*L*E*S BEHIND IN TERMS OF ITEMS. LOLWTF EA?!?!
