    Remember when DFs forumfall was legit?? What happened? Where'd all the funny and clever people go?? Why isn't there any drama? Why is the forum such a damn vanilla snoozefest now?? Let's step our game up around here. Thanks.

    Game is only filled with people who just spin lie after lie to justify their own needs, nothing creative about it nothing clever just same bs day in day out to try give themselves reason to keep logging in to play hence this war thats been going on for a while, no actual real justification for it so it was fabricated on loads of lies and making themselves the victims the art of forumfall was something to behold.

    People don't care anymore and why should they? Nothing in game has ever matter less than it does now.
    Its a dying game with like 40 daily actives still trying to milk what fun is left in it. Every now and then I am one of them. Everyone knows who is who and nothing they do is new or even remotely surprising anymore. If you want 'forumfall' that is even remotely close to even end game DFO you need 2 things. First is BPG needs to quit sucking dick at developing the game. 2018 was easily the worst year so far for RoA. Second is the game needs an active population that is a few times more than what we have.

    My runes are marked where ever i need to be. I don't need holdings, i just need pvp. I just show up to sieges for a good fight and to do my best when i'm available. Wait, wonders are actually meaningful, but that's about it it feels like.

    DFO had plenty of conflicts for several reason that doesn't only involves pvp, but heavy griefing too. in DFO, there's no sieges without grief. On ROA, you got runebooks, houses with global bank a lot more that makes everything feel meaningless. So there's absolutely no reason to cry about anything. On ROA, you basically just need 1 city and 1 house port at the very least.

    Hopefully, the TC patch will regulate all of that.

    ...

    We can argue that holdings are still useful if you wish to use 1 p-shard over 2 p-shards.

    Conflict only happens when there is a reason for it, RoA has basically removed all reasons for conflict. In dfo the main reason for conflict was holdings, this was because of the portal network they provided, but putting in runebooks and billboards has basically removed nearly all the value holdings had.

    They have not added anything that is worth fighting over, they came close when they added champions however there are way to many champion spawns for this to do anything.

    Even if there was a reason to fight over holdings there isn't enough people to make it necessary.

    Champions/Mob spawns aren't worth fighting over because they're cancer.

    They take forever to do efficiently, and don't drop nearly enough when done in a good sized group. They are a good concept, but they aren't fully flushed out. Guardian spawns are more effective at creating conflict then these.

    If you want mob spawns worth fighting over, best look at the Devil of DFO:

    - Easily done (when boxing it in)
    - The PVE group is vulnerable but not TOO vulnerable.
    - Reward very much worth the risk. You could do it... in what? 10 minutes? Respawn of what? 3 hours?

    They need to remove this rando spawning on the named mobs midmap, and make them spawn every hour, or two, or even three. More people will check them, more people will do them and more organic PVP will happen and midmap holding value will increase, although only slightly (thanks runebooks).

    The named mobs aren't hard, but they aren't easy, and they are definitely worth the risk of trying to kill one.

    Been saying it forever on these forums
    Make special mobs spawns drop useful fluff or items similar to the Gargantuas
    Get a special recipe from a mob = Instant pvp
    Get a special robe or something = instant pvp
    list goes on and it can even be simple items. Heck make a spawn have a super low chance at a game time token worth like 7 to 30 days. Be super rare but someone will always be trying to get it and that will bring someone else in to try and take it.

    Champ spawns need to be simplified a bit so that it doesnt suck to do them.
