    Default The best way to get prestige/favor is to just do nothing?

    Ok so right now I am completely confused on how PvP grants prestige and favor.

    Can someone explain the system to me?

    I can literally gain more prestige and favor by sitting around and doing nothing in any given warfront than I can by actually getting PvP kills. Seriously. I can get 20 prestige every 5 seconds by using /dance and /sleep, while for a kill sometimes I only get 1 prestige. Shouldn't this not be? This has been this way since the day I picked the game up and first entered the Black Garden in May.

    I would think in theory it should only grant you prestige or favor if you actually take part in a kill. The total prestige or favor granted should be based on the percentage of contribution you make towards each player kill or PvP goal. Would this be too difficult for Trion to code into the game?

    the full-zone credit is pretty good, you can have people on defense without them giving up favor/prestige for helping the team. new pvpers are dead longer than they are alive, so it would be even worse of a grind for them.

    Yeah but then why can't I get XP before 50 for other people completing quests in my same zone?

    Where is your problem?

    And it was funny to dance instead of killing ppls in pvp?

    Before this fix there were ppls who was running shards - doing objectives to actually win and they got almost no favor/prestige.

    To all these afk, dance, bla bla bla... it's really so funny? Isn't u play pvp because u like to kill others?

    yes although the threat poster has a point if the implamented this then the people defending flags and what not would get no favor so all warfront favor and prestige gain needs to stay how it is,

    Gonna try this warfront afking thing. Being lvl 3 prestige sucks in these unbalanced horrible warfronts.

    Current system is the only fair way to do it.

    If you can think of something better that doesn't penalize people for:
    - defending flags
    - staying back at the base to defend
    - playing a hybrid or support class to buff their teammates or de-buff the opposition

    Then please do so.
