    We could all recapture that great time with a little tweaking (like a daily faction point gain cap). Just remember how active people were when:

    Factions

    • Sigil corruption time dropped to 4 hours (from 10 hours) for the duration of the event
    • Sigil purification time dropped to 6 hours (from 3 days) for the duration of the event
    • Faction Thieves will now receive 100 silver and 10 kill points for successfully capturing a town sigil
      • Sigil must complete full circuit of corruption: from town pedestal, to stronghold, back to town pedestal
      • Interruptions will not count against the original thief, as long as the original thief’s faction finishes the corruption process
      • Thieves must be online to receive their reward
    • Killing faction enemies inside warzones results in bonus kill-points and silver

    I recall this time period being relentless and draining. There is little goal to capture sigils when they are up again in a few hours. But not to worry, devs took care of the entire system.

    Next step is to fight each other with sticks.

    Short timers means it is only relentless if you wish it to be. :)

    It is true, but to hold advantage you want to keep a hold of the towns or someone else will for you.

    That does not seem to generate a lot of interest these days.

    Yeah but interest is subjective, to adequately spark it things must be applied as a whole not to the interests of a small group.
