    I think to put a guy in factions they should have to have a minimum amount of skills. a guild on our shard has started putting new chars in other factions to kill them so they can get punkte.

    That's why they had the minimum account age restriction [Publish 52], but then people complained about having to wait so they removed it. They must've forgot why they had it to begin with.

    The minimum skill requirement could be easily circumvented on shards other than Siege and Mugen by running around Haven buying skills training.

    How about at least one skill GM or higher?

    Although I agree; but theres easy ways aorund this too. Create a char and put a cloak of corruption on and boom; gm focus and med after an hour or 2 of bank sitting. Maybe make it so your character needs to be considered "A Vet member" like they call em in the guilds on uo.com. You need to have a gm skill; maxed out skill points (700-720), and all your stat points (225-255). That would be a pretty good start I think. That would take more than an hour or so to do right? :)

    How about just reinstate the 30 day age restriction?

    They need to make it so once a character is in factions they cannot soul stone skills. Then reinstate the 30 day faction requirement as well has full Stats and max skill (700 - 720). They also need to make it so it takes 7 days to leave factions again.

    This is the only way to make farming points a complete pain in the ass. With that being said people will still be able to farm. They need to make it so you don't get bonus points from killing people in a town or opposite faction (chaos order faction garbage). The bonus to points inflates the points way to much.
