    As copied from Uhall. http://vboards.stratics.com/uhall/261970-[uo-herald]-incoming-changes-faction-points.html

    We are looking at fixing the issue regarding faction points and the deterioration of faction points. To fix these issues properly it will require us to wipe all faction points.

    The fix will soon be available for testing on Test Center 1. We invite all of you to transfer your characters to TC1 and experience the changes as soon as it is ready.

    Keep an eye on the Herald.

    I know character copy does not work for us... a heads up anyway.

    Aww, does this mean I can't be Ubergrand Patriarch Kung-Fu Master San of CoM any more just by having more than -6 points?

    I will rely on others to test this. I am working my fingers to the bone distributing cake and fine wine to the starving peasants. *pats self on back*

    I made the probably pointless requests in the UHall thread to make sure the devs explain in the publish notes whether any changes affect Siege and Mugen's faction systems because of their Evil/Hero aspects and maybe even think about setting up a Siege/Mugen ruleset test shard for once.

    what this means is that factioneers will probably need to have more than one point to be rank 10

    i dont think it requires more than a few points for rank 10 on any shard, the problem is it counts inactive people with no kills. (which is why you only need 1 point for rank 10)

    Kinda sounds like they're going to make it so it only counts active factioners, which means on a shard like siege there will probably be only 1 person capable of using rank10 in each faction, lol

    Did i say i had a problem with it :D I just thought it was kinda funny. I've said before I'd be a lot more if faction artys went away entirely, I preferred Order/Chaos anyways.
