There remains a place in this storied game for the faction system. I ask the powers that be to at least try eliminating faction arties before trashing factions altogether. Please stop selling them, let existing ones time out, and lower the Sigil timers to attract people back. Add a moderate (say 100 or 1000) points limit. Nothing else, just those changes and give us a few months to see how it plays out. We have lived under the threat of "Factions is done" for a couple years now. I suspect it will be months before any major proposed change takes place. In the mean time, implement the simple request above. Thank you.
