    Yeah, either remove billboards from lawful player cities or make them display only lawful villages. Lawful cities should be for pve oriented or newer clans and not veterans that hide behind current game mechanics.

    It's the other way around - PvP oriented clans living out of lawfull hodlings do remove chance of pvp. They live in safety (there is no point in raiding lawful holding) while at the same time take full advantage of a billboard when it suits them (full loot only whet it suits them).

    Now we have an aggressive clan (most village attempts/captures, raiding others, asset) living out of lawful and this does not feel right - close to zero consequences of their actions while no restrictions.

    Them moving to lawless city would not remove chance of pvp. It would enhance it.

    Full loot PvP.

    can't make that change when you have a double digit population and a map that takes 2 hours to travel from 1 corner to the other.

    There are so many ways of instant travel available that distance does not matter that much any more. You can use rune books, portal chambers, wilderness portals, can even use billboards to travel.
    And actually less population there is, more important it is to remove mechanics that allow veterans to exclude themselves from pvp.

    Only just realised this was a problem.

    Can we just get back to full loot no exceptions?

    Why haven't we gone full private server already and added a portal to every big spawn, from sanguine.

    Also, why can't I buy full dragon for 1gp? Who gives a fuck anymore? Don't we play this for PvP?

    Fucking actually braindead

    At no point in Darkfall history has it ever taken 2 hours to travel from anywhere to anywhere. Sanguine to Angfrost was about a 40 minute trip by mount before mount sprint.

    At least all cities, right? There is a system message, there are towers, walls, runes cant be marked in holdings - is it really necessary for a holding to be lawful on top of it all? That's too much. And if holdings are to remain lawful - make them useless for veterans, who rather exploit this particular game mechanic and not actually need it - hence my suggestion.

    The difference between lawful and lawless should be whether or not you lose alignment for killing someone there, IMO.

    I feel like billboards should be removed all together, and village cap mechanics reverted back to requiring explosives or a siege hammer. And now that all the loot drops at once, going all the way back to last hit doesn't seem too unreasonable...

    wait, so you want us to lose alignment for killing people in a lawful village? Or lawful city? I don't like it.

    An active lawful village? No.

    An inactive lawful village? Yes.

    City owners of lawful cities should be able to decide whether they want people in their city or not. If they say people are welcome in their city and then kill them when they come, then yes, they should lose alignment.
