With all the recommendations to "read the New Player guide" .. which is advice I've given in-game at times as well .. would it be worthwhile to modify the new character creation process so that when a player creates a character, the first screen they see is something along the lines of "Welcome to PFO. For details about game mechanics and character creation, please read the New Player Guide" and have a link on that screen directly? Not sure if the tech exists to do this, but it is just a hyperlink and would ensure that such a recommendation is emphasized more than having the link in the patcher which is easily ignored.

I think the new AI is better as well. It should be hectic and the AI should decide to attack whichever member of the group might represent either a better target (easier kill) or bigger threat.

I agree with the +10 rep/hr … If some decide to try and adopt 1000XP perma-negative alts approach, I have faith that GW will keep their commitment to ensuring that such actions are not desired and deal with those that do so.

I am not a fan of PVP but I accept there will be sanctioned PVP. A higher rate just means those that get their thrills from the misery of others are being encouraged to do so.

I'll be in the "do nothing at this time" crowd. I've been investing in both characters and restarting from scratch just for about 1K of XP would be a bigger loss. Besides, been waiting a couple of years .. I can be patient.

Perhaps an attack against a party member should be considered accidental? That would seem detectable though I guess you could find scenarios where even that could be exploited.

@Chidar .. then we are on the same page .. and I was perhaps too aggressive in placing you in the PVP-till-it-hurts camp … Agree that there should be a way to avoid penalties for inadvertant deaths.

Yes - if you are flagged for hitting them, and they die, you take the rep hit even if you didn't kill them.
Any chance of a tweak to the system mechanics for reputation?

A) Reputation penalty only if you are last hit on the opposing character.

So you want a party of 6 to be able to kill 24 players if they do it correctly with little consequence? If you are involved in the process of causing the death of another character, you should get the full responsibility for it. I do have an issue with the idea of not being fully held accountable for actions that lead to another character's death.

GW has stated that they intend for PVP to be justified/in-game reasons .. not just random gankfest and they will try to make sure that the game isn't a gankfest ..

Hmmm .. I get the button when I log in from the GW homepage …

So the "Get Installer Here" button just below the login information isn't available to you?

email GW is all I can suggest.
