    Re: the 3 new factions?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    New fiction will be coming out soon to give backstory to the change to 3 factions and what kind of "personality" they will have.

    I think we are going to give some kind of legacy title to the players who are in the current factions whenever we finally retire them... something like, "True Britannian Loyalist" or "Reputed Shadowlord Worshiper" or whatever. Just to memorialize the old system.

    The old system has some stuff in it that is just broke. Like, for example, the faction silver system. We couldn't put enough stuff to buy in the game to soak up all that silver. We are making some pretty big changes to the way things worked and we felt like it would be easier to swallow if players felt like it was a whole new ball game.

    Also, we talked to EMs and some other testers and the general consensus was that we are going to make someone feel singled out if we just hit the D button on one of the factions. If we just make 3 new factions it is more fair.

    The good news is... you get to try it today on a TC.

    Wouldn't that be funny if they got rid of silver usage in factions LOL. Boo Hoo to all the silver farmers (especially those unattended ones LOL). I can only keep my fingers crossed...

    Who knows. If they got rid of silver, they would probably introduce something else...that something else would also have to be farmed...so they will still be at it.
