    I assume the spawns would be moved instead of the stones but that's not really up to me. I never supported the way digging was implemented, that happened long before I joined the team. I don't think it should stay how it is either.

    Caving into the cries of the elitists is only setting yourselves back

    Now only the upper-tier clans can afford to rune to places, and the mobs are consolidated (along with farming being more tedious) so it will be much easier for those same upper-tier clans to lock down the only spots worth farming, which is exactly what they have been crying for all this time and you guys gave it to them.
    --- Post updated ---
    This is still 100% possible, but now only for the richest clans. If we are really concerned about this then we should get rid of runes all together or repurpose them for something else.

    This is a player driven game....we create our own content largely, the lack of content has been almost entirely due to the community itself being over the top toxic.

    I realize it's still possible but it requires more effort, I prefer it how it is now over how it was.

    So you prefer only the richest try-hards being able to do it while taking it away from everyone else?

    Do you feel that runestones are significantly more expensive than portal shards? I don't. I'd argue that runestones will wind up being similar or lower in value over time. The prices may not reflect that in the near future but it's not a significant matter imo.

    Its like you want people to be terrible at the game and not learn.

    I tell you what. If PVP in this game is a problem for players, they can have fun farming in the safe zone when it comes out, mmkay cupcake?

    I can say the same thing about getting rid of runebooks because people don't want others to port in on them, scared of pvp or something? git gud

    If that is true then the ONLY thing this did was make things far less convenient without actually changing anything, just lower quality of life and that is it.

    I'm not the one that logs out ontop of Calf when people hit system bud. Theres PVP, and theres game crippling fast travel to anywhere on the map from a safe zone.

    Wouldn't more fast travel = more pvp? Think local banking/more travel gave new dawn more pvp? You got things backwards buddy

    No, its the opposite. You are wrong. New dawn actually had a lot of PvP for the amount of players it had, and it was enjoyable. It needed some fast travel though. Both ends of the spectrum are bad you need to find a balance between.

    Do you want to port around everywhere knowing that people like me, arrow, animal, ect are also porting around? No.

    Billboards are a perfect example of why the game is in the state that its in. There is available pvp every 30 minutes, yet 80% of VCP's go uncapped. You'd think they would all get capped because everyone playing wants pvp and wants to fight, right? No one wants to risk porting in and instantly losing a bag to being zerged or risk a bag running into a good player so they don't port.

    Because everyone is just porting around instead of organically riding/running into each other you miss people most of the time because everyone ports, loads in, kills the mob, then recalls rather than having to ride to a bank and back to a spawn. The next person ports in and does the same thing.

    Chaos stone runebook change was supposed to help the game because you'd have runes marked to the few 'best' of the 20-30 chaos stones on the map and those best chaos stones would be hotspots, but would be far away from high end mobspawns to prevent constant camping/zergs porting in. With the map of chaos stones we proposed, there would be many options per continent so you wouldn't have to pick the hotspot 'good chaos stones' if you wanted to avoid pvp and you'd still be able to get everywhere within 5-10minutes of riding. BPG dropped the ball big on this one (like always) and the change was meaningless and just wasted everyones time.
