sorry i cant post in player discussions yet.
in regards to portals they need to remove them from player cities and place them in Capitol Chaos cities to allow every one access to them and allow every one fair game on travel to sub conts.Do not add them to every chaos city. only a hand full need them. They should cost 3 portal shards each direction you go.
add pvp hot spots
add fair playing field
fast travel that is possible added to the layer to sieging and allowing more sand in the box. (aka pay mercs to police the portal to keep some clans from joining in some sieges.) and ofc other ideas i am sure you all will come up with.
This also makes players leave there player city to get to places but will also allow for fast travel.
Some rules i think need to go in with them in chaos cities.
center area of the map. i think a new plateau should be made just for the center map portal some where around the mud swamp with medium mobs all around it to off set players just camping it constant.
Ofc only one portal on each sub continent.
this works this way do to it still being lawless in each of these areas.
lets be honest we need the portals but they need to be set in a way that does not allow players to hold all of them also they have to be placed in a way that promotes pvp, and player traveling out of there normal areas.
Think of these portals to become a tool for "sanboxy" type play as well as function. allow them to be used in a way that promotes players to choose to defend the use of or block the use of when multi sieging is in question.
