    From a fairly recent FoF:

    Draconi - Please reconsider this. We need MORE REASONS for people to fight for the towns, not less. There is little incentive to fight as it is! I cannot imagine what you are thinking here. If someone wants a faction war horse, they should have to fight to get it. If we can just buy everything, why even bother?!
  2. The problem is (from what I gather from my own shard and others comments) that on a good number of shards 1 faction dominates the entire shard, so if you're in another, you'll never get a horse unless you join the dominant one. Factions is very lopsided.
  3. They're bought now, at least by large groups. Small groups probably think "why even bother".

    Maybe their soloution isn't right, though I'd rather see that go in than see smaller groups discouraged from participating at all.

    The real problem is-is that you need to have control of the town for 24 hours in order to place horses and so on (corrupting them just once isn't enough...)

    If they change the timers back to the old corruption/town control timers... problem is solved.

    There should be incentives besides pixel crack for going after the sigils... like guardzone protection in the towns (on siege at the very least.)

    I have a feeling this change will not actually happen.
