http://www.jcthebuilder.com/vacancy-vs-virtue/ I'll give you all the summary: It is falling flat. Here are the three main reasons: There needs to be rewards that will entice players to participate, especially veterans. Rewards that make people who don’t participate jealous and encourages them to join in. There needs to be a reason to capture a town beyond grinding silver. A sense of urgency to draw players to fight. There needs to be a scoring system. Preferably with online leaderboards as we had with Factions. As it stands right now I can't get excited about this. And from what I can tell a lot of people are feeling the same way. I really hope there is going to be more changes and additions to this system in the near future.
