After losing a siege in a lawful area today I have to say not losing 4 armour sets makes so much difference in a good way. Replacing just the weapon sets is not such a big deal. I had not expected to be so happy with these changes but there you go, something positive to report. Would never have expected BPG to go this route but I think it goes a long way to making the game a bit less punishing for clans that are not so rich, maybe even new clans. Hope they keep this up and the game might have a future.
