why would you collect armor and weapons? they're pretty generic and not that hard to obtain...coming from other games to albion you need to adapt your way of thinking to this new way of playing, not adapt the game to your own taste.That's actually bullshit, because Arena exists.You say you lose your gear, 6-10 times a day. Actually, not everyone would enjoy that, or want to psychologically detach from their equipment.I am just about the biggest carebear in the BZ. All I want to do is gather up my loots or my ores and meander back to town with them. If I get caught I just die. Every time. As much as 6-10 times in a day lately. It's fine thought because it is trivial to make more silver/fame than the marginal cost of some gear. You need to just detach from the idea of ownership in your gear and treat your gear package as an investment that you hope to gain a return with. It is just quarters for the pinball machine.
If you get rid of ganking this game becomes unplayable. The only thing that even makes it a game is that all of a sudden some people can show up and start stabbing you, and then run off with your stuff. It is the heart of content in this game. Otherwise you should just go play Cookie Clicker or Farmville.
It doesn't ruin the game for anyone. It is what makes the game a game at all. Otherwise it is just an exercise in clicking things.
If you've played any other mmo where your gear is something you can only even use when you've spent a year levelling up to use it, that's not something you want to just throw away or keep replacing. That's not necessarily good game design at all.
The reality is, in Abion people collect rare mounts and even buy custom skins for them.
But normalize the concept of not collecting armor and weapons.
i would prefer to collect armor and weapons than mounts and skins.
I only converse with you neanderthals when the server is down for daily maintenance, and occasionally at most.
