Factional Warfare dev-blog
And finally CCP bothered writing a decent dev-blog and it’s about Factional Warfare. Wooh. It will also be available on Sisi (test-server) this weekend. I got even more excited when I saw CCP Linghorn say this in the comments thread: ”
If you sign up for a faction you can be attacked by anyone in opposing factions anywhere. it is that in low-sec we have marked out control points which will bring the combat to them making it easier for you to find and take part in.”
And that’s exactly what I was hoping for. It’s what I wrote some time ago here. No matter how awfully implemented the rest of FW could be, because of this factional ‘extensive’ war-dec system it’ll be an awesome addition to the game.
It will however be a big mess in the first weeks, I’m sure there’ll be some whining on the forums, but it’ll balance out after a while. There are a lot of people (including me) that love a target-rich enviroment and these people will be satisfied with Factional Warfare.
