    The politics of DAOC didn't come from the devs, they arose naturally from the three faction system. When one faction became strong, the other two formed into an uneasy truce, but the truce was...

    Twinks are a small minority of characters in warfronts affecting everyone else. The people you describe are a fraction of a fraction of players. I don't think this is a very good point against my...

    I'd just like to add that my goals here are to preserve twinking as a viable and fun minigame (even if it's not quite the game it is now) and to restore the enjoyment of levelling in warfronts (by...

    DAOC, PvP game of the decade, and it's worth reading that short article about why.

    I would love to see the spirit of DAOC live again in a modern game like Rift. And since DAOC itself is dead,...

    Semi-separated twink brackets

    WoW eventually separated XP locked characters into separate battlegrounds, to keep the twinks away from levelling players. Even with WoW's large population, this caused a lot of twink "death" and...

    Taking things away from players always creates a lot of bad feeling. It's something game designers really try to avoid if they've got any sense.

    I'm still very surprised they allowed XP lock. The...

    Keeping people busy while your team accumulates points is the way to a win, and killcounters are sooo easy to manipulate.

    Or just make crafting materials available between characters. They're already available from your bank, so why not go one step further.

    People who leave early aren't a problem, because being pulled into a warfront early is fine. You have a chance to win. It's the people who quit 3/4 of the way through when it's clear they're going...

    Damn five minute rule.

    I really don't blame you (or any player) for playing to win. That'd be stupid. The only ones to blame for making warfronts miserable for levellers are Trion.

    Every bit of damage or CC makes a difference. Pawns win chess games, sometimes. So why do you bother to twink, if making a difference is OK? I wonder.

    Is there any evidence of 90% loss ratios? Or even anything close? My experience is that people complain that they lose all the time, but when you ask them to actually keep a tally, they shut up.

    Avoid pulling players late into warfronts

    I was pulled onto failing teams for more than half my warfronts this evening. Usually more than half way through the game (e.g. a codex that's 550 to 12 with all points held by the other team).
