    I get trying to make it a very intentional decision to go hostile but why not just turn me red automatically or again just use a long cast time like bindstone recall? You could just circumvent chaos churches by adding a gold cost from switching to hostile > neutral. Also something i forgot to mention is i tried going neutral before i went hostile and it literally would not allow me to go from peaceful > neutral. I was just trying to get some duels in outside of sanguine then i was gonna switch back and continue doing stuff. I tried maybe 15 times none of which worked, then started trying to go hostile. Clicked the button again a bunch of times, eventually it casted the animation and i finally went hostile. All this to duel another blue player then I'm stuck hostile, meanwhile the other blue player goes easily back from hostile to peaceful with a touch of a button right in front of me and i have to go to a chaos church. I had no charges on my runebook, no way to just recall to a safe spot since both my normal and capital recall were to blue cities. So i now have to run to a chaos bank just to get to a chaos city or run to a chaos city in the first place. Just wanted to make it clear that i was just dueling and didn't lose alignment or gank anyone yet I'm punished for it. lol
    The zones have no clear markings on the map, no clear description of what will happen if you go hostile or neutral and really no way to find out unless you just make the jump and see what happens. My suggestion if you planing to keep it like this is to make it so you can attack party members. Otherwise idk how your gonna be able to get duels. Having to go hostile or go to the 4 islands to duel especially for a solo player like me makes it even tougher to find practice. Also theres no friendly fire between peaceful players, which seems odd. I suspect blue blocking for mainland sieges might become a thing as well, but not sure how the alignment system effects sieges though.

    Relics actually sounded really cool and could of diversified combat by player choice.

    Also would have made pve populated.

    Unfortunately it never happened.

    Same, it would have been something rare to actually farm. They could have made the best ones bind on equip.

    So many cool ideas could have been stolen from other good games to make this one better. Why not copy what works??? People love finding rares. Darkfall has 0

    u realize they could added spec like destroyer to the trainer, like increase healing by 20% but reduce all magic damage by 20% or something and they coulda use the new robes for healer spec that woulda been insane.


    its just sad and pathetic where we stand right now

    Instead they wanted to ruin the hybrid mage. Thinking mages MUST wear robes. That’s why people are not playing!

    IDK bud, we don't even have those new robes. Also the robes wouldn't have ruined hybrid mage, just made pure mage more of a thing.

    Yours truly proposed the relic idea while they mangled combat on the PTS :p

    Now we have no-loot PvP. The direction we're going doesn't exude confidence for the future.

    The thing i don't understand is why you keep trying to cater to "everyone".
    This game isn't for everyone.

    Right now you are catering to nobody, and gutting the game to appease some conjured image of these thousands of players that are dying to try this game if you just make this "one more change".

    At this point, revert back to skill patch, add arena with a ladder system, make arena a premium feature, and watch the development $$ flow again. Then you can work on stuff like conquest.

    It makes perfect sense, so you can't just go hostile attack/kill somebody and then switch back. There is no reason to go hostile unless you want to kill peaceful players on mainland. Neutral allows consensual PvP on mainland for those who want it.

    Can we add an actual duel system? It's all anyone does all day. Like every other game just accept like a trade and announce winner at 1 HP without actually killing them and without alignment.

    Pretty sure you can still flag hostile.
    Port into a blue area with +1000 alignment.
    Start killing people under tower.
    Been i don't know how many months...
