    Default QOL & Seastone Residents

    Dear Devs,

    Alot of Rift game play is being played by forming groups cross shards now. Seastone residents are unable to participate in almost all activity due to an outdated system of guard vs defiant grouping mechanic. A resident of seastone is unable to form any of these groups unless all of the participants match their faction. They are unable to participate because when they will flagg once they step out of TB. This has been an issue for several months and has led to the rapid decline of our last pvp server due to the fact that guilds and players are leaving due to the need to group with larger populations cross shards to complete all end game grinds and content.

    Possible solution. Allow for players to switch there pvp default somehow to correct for this.

    Faction quest line swapping, anyone?

    edit; A very very long saga quest line for allowing a player to swap faction.

    Please no. We will end up with a pvp shard that has only one faction on it.

    What we need is to allow seastone residents to jump shards and become flag optional without needing to quit the shard.

    OR if they just changed it to how it is on pve shards- people from both factions can be guilded/group together.

    If they changed that minor thing, people would flock back to Seastone.

    Regardless, something needs to be done asap...it's ridiculous that the Seastone folks are punished for playing on a pvp shard.

    i have a great solution to fix the problem. only allow cross faction groups for conquest and pve related issues, because everyone knows guardians and definats being able to join warfronts with one another has everything to do in the huge fight against crucia! also this cross factioning is severely unbalancing warfronts and if people cant see it they are blind. i have seen many x-guild members (which some are game changing players) from my previous vacations on pve shards asking for someone of a different faction to let them join their group, yup throw throw another awesome player on the dominating side because it is not bad enough for the team losing 10-15 games in a row as it is. most of the competitive guardian healers tend to be always healing a defiant warrior which leaves guards with the sloppy seconds or the left overs of the remaining healing.

    ps i laugh at all the people that keep starting threads wanting group duels. seastone allows group dueling and the community is punishing themselves for having it be absolutely necessary to play the game with a mixed faction group.

    its easy, on seastone an x amount of defiants meets an x amount of guardians in a remote spot of the open world map between the 2 respawn points. 2 vs 2 3 vs 3 5 vs 5 the possibilites are endless lol

    Well we know that, but the seastone PR committee needs it spelled out for them.

    The Devs will respond to this thread in the same way that they have responded to many other threads regarding the fate of Seastone: SILENCE. But don't worry... Daglar will respond to a post about Brevane Lamp Posts and Elrar will let us know what his favorite drink is. As you can see, the Devs are way to busy to respond to substantive, cogent, respectful inquiries.
