    I don't recall if this was part of the new points system. But while playing my thief that doesnt have any points, I died and lost 4 points to the killer? How is this even possible?

    your thief had 0 points and now your -4?

    i know that once you get over 10 you loose a % just like always, but i didnt know you could give more then 1 point if you have under 10.

    i guess the good news is you cap at -5 if that helps any?

    I think it goes by rank. Which sucks, since rank updates slowly. You can continue to lose rank 10 points throughout a faction fight, even after dropping well below rank 10 point levels.

    Did you have a bugged rank? I know, in the past, I've had quite a few characters at -6 holding a rank of 8.

    Thanks for the replies. The thief was a defender with 0 points, so I think those coordinated. I havent used him to get any sigils or kills in a few years. I looked in the journal when he died and it said you have lost 4 points for being vanquished blah blah.

    Pretty sure this isn't correct. Though Im not even sure it's worth reporting.

    Instead of losing 10% you lose points based on rank. So even if you only have 1 point and you're rank 1, you will lose 4 points.

    Everytime I login my rank changes. Once day I'm rank 4, next I'm rank 5. Then back to 4. No idea wth is going on.

    Yeah, that'd be it then. I pull my hair out thinking how badly factions have been ran into the ground. I dont ever recall asking for a new points system.

    When people asked for the ranking system to be fixed, they wanted the existing one to work. I just don't get it...

    Yeah, I guess that makes at least 2 of us. Not that I really care, but a head scratcher either way. I'm pulling the rest of my characters out now, seems pointess to eat a random statloss in a gank.
