    oh hey grimtide i just drooped that gem about holdings having value being a major reason most semi active players i know being top for wanting to play ., i also took the time to talk to all 200 people i know that played dfo from is eu beta na launch and even unholy wars. i asked about my idea because i was so sure it was the best idea that i just had to find out to make sure i was right . i was right, everyone said they would play everyone even said they would do the task of killing 10 thousand monsters ( any verity ) for a ride able Beradron mount. i even had an idea where at intervals say every 2 thousand you unlock the raptor mount or a hooded one mount ., everyone just cares about fluff because dark fall was always a game that in its design phase ( the phase during its creation) full access to no skill cap was the only option to insure balance ., no one ever said dfo wasn't balanced just nothing to do.

    While combat changes are not #1 for me, they would definitely increase my interest in the game. Shit is old and stale.

    A playerbase.

    the problem with sandboxy pvp games like df is that other players are the content

    the less other players there are the less content.

    with sub 500 active players theres just not enough players to create content.

    Content through the lure of racial significance.

    Treat races like faction's. Add a lure to it. Each race is fighting for their survival and you can join the war by joining the faction within your race.

    If you join the faction you cannot heal player's who are of different races. ( This would bring significance to race war's and playing the same race as a clan )

    The human can be the base character everyone start's as. But as you play you have the option to join any of the wolf,mirdain,dwarf,orc,alfar factions. Which transforms you from human into said race.

    Add silver that is dropped when killing an enemy faction member. The more an opponent is worth the more silver they drop.

    ==> Add a ranking system to faction's for bragging rights.

    Player's who are in factions want to pvp not pve. Allow special faction gear to be bought from faction vendors Make these items have 30 dura and lose 50% of current durability anytime the player is killed(killed not ganked).

    Make territory control the gateway for access to faction vendors. If a faction does not have a territory they cannot buy these items.

    Player's who are worth point's have a diminishing return on the worth of their faction point's based on how many faction pieces they are wearing.

    ex. Let's say Arrow has the highest point's. A faction gear set cost 50k silver, Arrow is worth 20k silver as maximum. If he wear's a full set of faction gear that cost 50k killing him will give the winner 20k silver but also destroy 50% of the durability the armor arrow is wearing. If arrow is naked he is worth 0 silver. This will stop players from farming their own character's.

    ==> Faction member's who wear faction gear cannot enter siege territory.

    ==> Faction gear can add small attributes like some of the food's you've implemented recently.




    Lower durability on item's crafted, bring in large durability consumption if a player dies and increase drop rates.

    Make it easy for player's to get materials and craft gear but make it a constant so it requires player's to continuously farm.



    Increase projectile speed so players with greater than 40 ping can be at less of a disadvantage vs player's with less than 40.

    Factions should never be tied to race, that goes against the premise of a sandbox game. Why should I have to roll human/alfar/ork/etc just to play with my clan? Opt-in factions are always a better choice.

    Getting gear from pvp, while it seems like a good idea, would be nothing more than a nail in the coffin for the sandbox premise. If i can just kill people to get low dura pvp-ready gear, what drives crafting? If people aren't crafting, what's the point of pve? If people aren't out pveing, whats the point of an open world map? Might as well reclassify to session based arena gameplay at that point.

    Your idea to add content will just end up removing more content.

    Changing to Free to play /w cosmetic shop for $, aka LOL style.... this game needs players. this game does well on free week/weekends. people will buy stupid shit. a lot of it. to those worried about hackers, anyone with a main can hack on an alt with GTT's, with a higher playerbase that could continue to actually GROW from the game being free would generate much more income for the staff to actually battle against potential hackers. there is literally no valid argument for keeping this game on a sub system, its less revenue and only hurts the population.

    Fear not because it's confirmed they are moving towards a Freemium system like you describe. Just takes time. The anti-cheat software is pretty good I don't think we'd have a hacking problem.
