    Lets let BPG know what we think is fun or would be and what aint. I will start.

    WHATS FUN.
    Epic siege battles.
    Naval warfare.
    Blowing shit up.
    Shooting cannons.
    Mounted combat.


    WHATS NOT.
    Getting ganked crafting.
    Having people jump over the walls of your city.
    Getting ganked at a noob quest spawn.
    Not being able to directional swing weapons from mount.


    I think the game should be designed around warfare, conquest and diplomacy. Not grieving and ganking. When the wolves kill all the sheep they move on to the next game. Albion.

    This may come as a surprise to you, but different people find different things fun. It's why some people like collecting stamps, and some people like MMA.

    There's actually no good reason that a game as big as DF can't cater to both stamp collectors and MMA fans. People just need to get their heads out of the past and accept that everything can't stay the same as it was.

    Do you want player holdings to be safe zones ?

    I don't 100% agree with the OP's point, but I do agree with his sentiment. I hear players complain all the time about "I need more content!" but their only suggestions are buffs to existing content ("X mob should drop more gold!").

    I think the playerbase is partly to blame for this. DF is clearly designed to have a lot more siege combat AND asset damage. However, most players (especially vets) are very reticent to siege and get TOTALLY butthurt if someone assets them. I would love to see more people going around blowing up walls, etc. That would create a ton of conflict = content.

    My favorite one is when they say we need "land towers", as if we don't already have them.

    Fun:
    ganking crafters
    Jumping over player holding walls
    Group pve

    Not fun:
    Being killed in 3 seconds from a fire tower
    Trying to become blue again
    Losing alignment because enemies at siege are not apart of enemy alliance

    What's not fun is running out of stamina 5 seconds into a fight or while straight line buffing you lose 1/3 of your stamina.
