Not here to trample over your idea — actually, yeah pretty much am.
Raiding isn’t really engaging? Has no RP depth? The conflict between the Renatians and Oren, truth be told has OOC a conflict, but also a flavour in RP. People don’t RAID others because they are bored, they do it to engage a reason. For example, raiding Renatus due to being Pro-Oren seems reasonable enough, and a counter-attack back from Renatus on say Haense. It has flavour to it — just not the type you’d think. You can’t really bring on the fact you want to see RP flavour on raids which are made to be PvP. An RP reason justifies it enough in my opinion. Also, it is very rewarding. When my friends win a raid — the reward is the satisfaction of getting a win, pissing off the people we raided, whilst having extra gear. Iron may be dirt cheap but not everybody is willing to waste their minas on it. I can tell you now, some people raid and or bandit so much that their gear runs out on the daily either because: they die, it is very damaged, etc.
Capturable objective, sadly not the point of a raid. Might as well call it a siege if their trying to capture a specific point and take over the place for a few. A raid is as stated: a raid. You go in, click around, take their loot and dip. I don’t think they’d allow us to raze farms; reason being more OOC conflict.
I don’t like the idea of forcing nations / charters to have treasuries — it would basically be forcing a nation to hold money in their treasury and allowing it to be stolen. The money of a nation should be kept by the nation leader, I understand IRP it makes sense, but this just brews OOC conflict. People will actually cry they are losing minas — sadly that’s just the reality.
I am going to agree with drfate on this one, this wasn’t thought out well. All it took was a 3 man GM voice-chat and a rushed post asking for our views. I’d actually not be surprised if I see that raids require payment now even after people saying no. I just think it’s time to listen to the community on this, I may not be a community member (even tho I serve events for them) but it’s clear as day on what the **** they want. Stop — think on the ideas you guys publish and ask yourself, “Is this post going to spawn toxicity? Why are we doing this to ourselves??? Do we need to start touching stuff we don’t even know about??” I’d vouch for GM’s like Ionnais who actually know how raids work, and if he had a reasonable response and or middle ground to this I’d love to hear it. I’m not trying to **** here but yeah
