    I PVP'd a lot in my years having started UO 1999. However, I have not not been playing factions on UOF - factions are way unbalanced on here due to the faction cap being removed a while ago..So I was wondering -

    How hard did you cry EQMS - in order to have the faction cap removed a while ago?

    How can you actually think that factions and PVP are fair, fun and balanced when more then the majority of factioners are all in - Minax?

    If there was a faction cap - dont you think there would be more PVP on UOF?

    Wouldnt guarding and raiding faction bases be funner and happen more frequently - if factions were more balanced with a faction cap?

    If factions were more balanced - don't you think UOF would appeal to more people that are faction/pvp oriented ...but decided to give up on factions and either dont play factions on UOF or went elsewhere to play in factions?



    P.S. - no, you dont deserve sigil bonuses, due to the removal of the faction cap.

    Faction Cap definitely needs a relook at .

    EQMS can pk / fight / grief with 30 reds for all i care but factions should be more balanced imo .

    By implementing faction cap , it allows new players/ smaller group a chance to compete/participate in factions . Without the current faction cap , it has cause a number of imbalance issues with sigils etc .

    EQMS can continue with their recruitment policy in their non faction guild . WIN WIN situation for all .

    They keywords are : LONG TERM VIEW

    Pretty sure there is a faction cap. Or it just boots people who are inactive. Not sure which it is, but I've had lots of my chars, that I don't use as much, get booted.

    Also
    LOL

    Faction Cap is not the same as booted out of factions due to no activity .

    You cant differentiate that ???? Are you serious ???

    imo they should just remove all those sigil bonuses and bring back vanilla factions. Way better. All this pet control stuff, all this faction pet ress BS - it just forces players to join factions who would be happier if they were simple bluebians.

    The removal from factions feature was added to run along side the old faction cap so that inactive people got kicked from factions to make room in the faction for active players.

    Probably should of been removed when the cap was removed

    faction pet ress should only work on warhorses, beetles, swampys etc.

    there should be a vet guy somewhere in brit that resses bluebie pets without skilloss for 10k gold (goldsink anyone?)

    no more wonky tamer control shitz to favor the chosen few who run gimped tamer templates.

    i see your point but I don't think that anyone would use it at 30k/charge.. I think that 10-15k is a decent price and affordable for most tamers.

    15-20k seems fine .

    It definitely cant be 5k ! Players will just abuse it and let their pets die almost all the time . Even a pet ball charge cost 17k on average
