    As JC posted in another thread, these initial changes are structural, and aimed at enabling better participation in factions.

    The following changes are slated for Pub 52:

    Turn off load balancing; factions can grow to any size
    Allow multiple characters on the same faction, from the same account
    Reduce quit time from 7 to 3 days
    Fix stairs for ghosts (should resolve issues with the SL base)

    Further publishes will then focus on gameplay bugs, and then enhancements

    You'll never convince your guildies to do that. They're too attached to their kill point totals.

    That wouldn't work... then everyone would just be Minax, it wouldn't force anyone out. Besides, SL has the best base by far. [​IMG]

    Yeah, the SL base is excellent, with no fewer than 4 choke points to get to the sigils.

    If TB owns Britain, then Brit base is much easier to defend since they can pile guards out front. COM also has that advantage, but it's easy to sneak past the guards there.

    What a joke those aren't improvements they need to give a purpose behind owning towns again not this crap
     
  18. I agree its not an improvement, but its a sign that they are willing to do something with Factions, now we just have to get them motivated to look at our lists of proposed changes and see if we can get any of those implemented. Or for that matter get a concensous on what should be changed.

    i believe set up right com base is far easier to defend, just because its so much smaller.
