Hello folks, I just want to make a quick statement about this.
If you don't want to participate in faction fights, that fine, however if people want to participate, let them. Many people are having a good time with the faction system and having fun fights. Attempting to sabotage the system by telling people to not participate either bluntly or lowkey is not a very nice thing to do. It looks bad in general, specially to any groups of new players who have just returned. This is honestly not a way to attempt to get a system that is currently working just fine to be changed.
People who sabotage or disrupt the faction system will not be tolerated and you will be banned from participating in factions. It is not 'your way or no way'. It is not good advice to new players. It doesn't even make much sense. It will be ignored as it is obviously not the normal to do this and trying to make a extreme case scenario is silly.
The system works fine, it is constantly getting improvement and changes, but for the most case it has been pretty very well. The system isn't 100% yet, but I'm glad people have been enjoying it, and we will look at further ways to make faction system fun/interesting. The system is designed for smaller guilds to be able to hop around if they choose to try to get the best points and there is nothing wrong with trying to maximize your faction points per week. On a lighter note, we're probably looking at other ways to make the control crystal capture a bit better as well within the upcoming days.
