Jeremy said:I'm not sure what you mean. This is a completely optional system. You do not have to participate and you lose nothing if you stay out of it. You do not have to do any PvP.
The problem is that if you don't want to participate in this right now, Imperian offers you nothing else, except bashing, which even for someone like me that enjoys it, gets repetitive after a while. Crafting is a high investment (and with the guild a huge amount of frustration, frankly) for almost no reward, running shops if you don't buy a token one and put it in Caanae is a good way to lose money, and you can't even do caravans anymore since those got tossed into a group activity I have never seen anyone do in all of my time playing Anette. I don't have an easy answer to "fixing" that, but ... that is pretty much the problem, right there.
Moreover, as someone who was looking into getting into PVP, this doesn't offer me much impetus to get into it. I don't really get any reward personally for participating, so why would I? Colour me selfish, but I don't like to spend time doing something that doesn't advance Anette as a character. It's why I can stomach a whole bunch of tedious bashing, but I don't do ... most other things, really.
 This is probably a bit OT. I'll think on this some more and put non-raid related thoughts elsewhere, later. But for what it's worth and in the interests of not being down on everything, I liked @elokia's events last year.
