    Platinum is worthless just like the economy. They start out with not enough, then move 180 degrees and flood the market. Nothing to fight over.

    I don't really get the point of platinum.

    It links your ability to keep your city/hamlet, with your ability to win at PvP (at villages)?

    This game has become more and more combat centric and less and less people play it. What's that say?

    Sure, you can buy your Platinum from someone, but then you're just paying gold, like you always have. Pointless.

    Agreed. I asked for more places to get plat months ago and was told no there was already too many faucets. Instead of lowering plat coming from villages And increasing or adding more places to get it(pve,maps,keys,trade routes,daily dungeons). If you suck at pvp or don’t have a blob to get it then you might as well not even go to villages

    They need to keep platinum hard to get, we have astronomical amounts of it!

    I believe the intent was to have villages be a part of the whole conquest deal, however in their current form they're just a loot event. Owning a village provides absolutely nothing. It's effectively a loot pinata on a timer.

    With this in mind, your argument is a strong one, which is: Increase more places to get platinum in order to facilitate getting players out into the world. I would argue for the removal of platinum from villages entirely until they are added for something which provides value to holdings and conquest.

    The other sources should be VERY MINIMAL. I'm talking 10 plat for a daily dungeon, 1 from mobs, etc.
    "But we don't want to have to do shitty things in order to keep our holdings" ok so you don't want to play the game... right.
    Just play a quake arena with extra steps. got it.

    I'm not really sure why villages as loot pinatas was changed anyways. It used to be that once you capture a village it provides gold every hour. They actually went backwards from creating a conquest event.

    Damn, that's a good point.

    "your ability to keep your city/hamlet, with your ability to win at PvP (at villages)?"

    What happened to owning a holding means you populate the area around you. It's SO 2010 at this point. lmao

    I agree it should be very low rates from other places but it should be in other places because some people only pve or only like to turn in maps or keys or only like to ride around and pick up papy and hit plat nodes or only do trade routes. They should be able to contribute to a clan holding by donating plat that they earned playing the game how they want. All daily dungeons should give some plat as well. Plat should also do more things like you need to turn it in to make the land tower go live or to spawn a champ or make a village you own go live. All of it should be tied to territory control. It will never happen though so don’t hold your breath.
