    You must die!!

    I suggest killing yourself in your house or at a shrine. You must have been in a active VvV town, once you remain you will be permanently flagged until death. You may also experience stat loss but if so it will only last 5 minutes.

    hmmm... I thought you must be killed by a V&V character to immediately remove the orange tint or wait out the timer (unknown time) (probably outdated - http://www.uoguide.com/Vice_vs_Virtue )

    Also,I thought suicide doesn't work (unless they updated it).



    Ok... it may not fit perfect, but it is a cool song. (Better than that Trinsic song in another post ;))

    VvV participation flag for non-VvV players will now be removed after 2 hours, or the participant is killed by a VvV player, whichever comes first.

    I still don't understand the point of the whole system. As one can get killed anywhere outside of town, it really doesn't matter from that end what color you are. Being orange simply seems to complicate doing mundane things like going to a bank at any one point in time in a particular city.

    I gated the other nite to Luna where I was killed upon landing...no biggie. What threw me off was that I didn't get that message upon gating that I couldn't land there. There appears to be some type of timer since some times my orange guys are blue...just some thoughts...no big deal.

    I think as you can kill blue npc's in the town, when a battle is going on, I think it should work like perm grey did for thieves in the past. If the battle do end, you should show blue, unless attacked of VvV.

    If you get killed by another orange, it would unflag you. For example, by your pet.

    Got killed at Tokano bank. Went blue for a while, but then went orange again. The only cities I play in are Tokano, Skara and New Mag.

    Being orange means nothing on Siege though. Everyone can kill and loot you anyways. I was once irritated by that but that's because my clothes were green, I dyed them orange and now okay with that.

    I wasn't aware that someone can actually see themselves as orange....always thought others are the ones that see you..

    you can double click yourself and get that Target on you and it'll have an orange gem in it and an orange status bar if you are VvV flagged

    Your pet should have orange flag too. If it kills you, the flag should go off, that worked for me back when I had green clothes.

    We are many nice VvV, who will help you get rid of the orange color and not loot you, just ask in Gen Chat. It should only be 2 hours you are orange, not 8.
