Im talking specifically about territories that are not taken care of because some guilds are just “looking to transfer into another server” with already half its players out, hence they are not investing a single gold into rebuilding downgraded stations or any crafting projet anymore.
Let me take an example from our server (Bakhu) where guild ‘Gold alpha’ renamed into ‘Gold Away’ (with most players gone by transfer) and are owning Weaver’s Fen since launch.
That territory was the perfect place to craft any piece of gear 2 weeks earlier and since transfers are up, every station is slowly decaying, no crafting project added in 10 days.
Fun part is : there is still a full roster of Syndicate players defending this territory at all cost for a dead guild.
This also creates leveling troubles for new players as they walk into towns to take some project board quests but… They are empty
Force guilds that own territories to pay for station upgrades and crafting projects otherwise it could be reclaimed by another guild by paying a lot of gold some days later ? I mean you own a territory you have to assume it, right ?
Balance attack and defense in GvG so the attack is more likely to win ? Some semi-afk guilds owning the same territory since launch is a joke, they just have to call the best guild of their faction to defend them.
Maybe just open 15 slots out of 50 for pick-ups but 35 defenders must be from the guild owning it ?
Because they have delusional fantasies of making ebic stonks!! on the auction house when in reality they travel for 20 mins to put up items on a dead AH that doesn’t sell, because why would anybody buy from the expensive AH when they can travel to WW or EF.
I said two days into the game the AH’s should be linked and people spoke to me like I was stupid.
The company i mentionned bought 3 territories on the first 4 days and owned 2 of the top income cities for a month, money was never a problem for them.
This topic is not about “we are poor we can’t upgrade stations” but more like “we left the server and decided to still keep the territories we will never care about”
