    1. The dedicated faction scroll has been removed.
    2. Other very nice rares have been added to the loot table.
    3. Factioners now receive 1.5X score at champion spawns.
    4. Minimum 5k score to be eligible for ALL REWARDS

    Please note: after watching the last 12 hours or so we will be decreasing the bonus factioners receive.

    #3 - Why should non-factioners get less of a score per mob killed then factioners? Why should every non facitioner have to join facitons... in order to compete score wise with factioners? Why should all champ spawn rewards now be based basically on who is in factions or not ? You all know higher score the better... Makes no sense at all. This change benefits the biggest faction guild that's on UO Forever.... What was staff's reasoning behind this? I don't get it. If factions were balanced.. which they are not... then I could agree with this change. How much of a risk do factioners really have to OJ's ? Minax has the majority of active factioners in it now.

    As for #1, 2, 4 -- I agree with those changes.

    Funny how I asked for a change like this when people were exploiting the faction scroll 2-3 years ago and was laughed at.

    1 day of EQMS doing 10+ champs and getting 1 scroll out of each champ and it is changed.

    I wish I could get broken things changed that quickly.

    Dammmn, making changes for the 1%.

    Now can we get a ladder/battle system for the PvPers?


    All 'seriousness' aside, @Swayze @Silly Santa , I think he meant the loot table for the champ spawn, whethere you're non-factioner/factioner was adressed as a whole, pleaes correct me if I am wrong though - it's not the factioners getting access to this 'special' loot table its everybody.

    They want everyone to join factions is what it seems like. You all know and cant disagree in that higher score the better.

    They take the risk of being orange to other factions. They should be rewarded for taking that risk. Non-factioners do not have to join factions. They still will be eligible for rewards.

    Score does not matter (besides the minimum 5k) in some of the drops - only powerscrolls.

    I understand you are exaggerating to make a point that "everyone will join Minax". I think there are a lot of other established faction crews.

    So many tears when no one has even tested the system more than a day.

    Oranges. What other oranges? You do realize that Minax has way more then the majority of active factioners in it. You think Minax has a lot of risk at the moment to other factions? sl? com? Tb?

    There is a difference between faction members and faction PVPers. There are plenty of pvp players in all factions to provide action and time spent fighting will be time not spent getting score. Sounds like a good system to me. I would extend it to give 2x score to reds (no additional bonus for faction red) using the same risk reward logic.

    The incentive for faction players is a step in the right direction.

    Any chance of them bringing back the limit for 1 faction per IP?

    Another method to funnel end-game players into factions.
