    it's been about 6 champs i've worked to last level or champ now and been zerged. Probably by some american guild that just controls power scrolls and doesnt contribute jack to the shard except for leeching our scrolls...

    Crap!

    Solo spawning is tough...

    I think i need more blues...

    edit: i take it back, a few of them were pretty safe :)
    Even sold me back one of my scrolls! lucky me! :p

    You probably talking about EEK, I guess.

    They are not too bad. They have a few idiots too, but most of them will fight you one on one instead of just ganking you. Also, most of the times their numbers aren't that overwhelming, so that a group of 3-4 stands a chance of defending the champ.

    Just try to put one or two of them in stat, that usually eases the pressure they can put on, enabling you to kill the champ before they get out of stat and regroup.

    It's a faction system, actually it's skill loss, not stat loss, but most call it statloss out of habit.

    Quote taken from the playguide on uoherald.com:
    "DEATH AT THE HANDS OF A FACTION ENEMY
    In order to add more permanence to the results of faction battles, and add meaning to death in combat without inflicting further economic damage upon the deceased, faction players are subject to a temporary skill loss penalty of 33% when slain by a faction opponent. As described in the time-based operations chart, this penalty lasts 20 minutes. This penalty is also applied if a faction character commits "suicide."
    Note: This penalty is not applied when a faction player is killed by a non-faction player, faction mate or non-enemy faction monster. "
