    Town loyalties, two things that seem fairly simple to fix, to me anyway. And they may already be fixed and I just don't know where to get it.

    1. "Your deeds in the city of Skara Brae are worthy of praise". Yes they would be, but Im in Ilsh, or Malas, or Tokuno...
    Perhaps "Your deeds are worthy of praise in the city of Skara Brae"

    2. Is there anyway to stop the above from being spammed up your screen everytime your area spells kill a dozen slime or rats...other than resigning from the city? Once every so often would be fine, but the constant constant spam, I cant even keep up with what the guildies are saying...:sad4:

    We recycle messages like that when we can, and that is the one we used during the original implementation of the city loyalty.

    As for the messages, there are two schools of thought here - would you rather know you've gotten loyalty from every monster you had killed or would you rather get less messaging? If you go with the less messaging there was a fear people would report not getting loyalty from their kills when in fact they were, we just weren't messaging for it. I'll noodle a better solution, as champ spawns do lend themselves to mob pwnage and there are quite a number of messages.

    i also would prefer less messaging. or at least a way to turn it off. Definitely not a huge issue tho.

    How about "Your deeds are worthy of praise and improve your city loyalty"? Then you wouldn't need to include the string for the city name.

    Since the loyalty you gain from killing champ critters is microscopically small, please do away with this message.
