Sounds to me like it is dependent on active players, Gnome. Not everyone can be online 20 hours a day, seven days a week like some do. Given the "flavor of the month" field pk landscape, I don't think a system that rewards bandwagoning anymore than it already does should be implemented. Also, I can't imagine that everyone has the goal of tearing everything up to remake the game in their own image, and the new system you propose takes a dump on years of work that would be wiped out on a whim. No thanks.

And yeah, knighthood and shadow might be on the chopping block at the moment, but Chaos would've been gone a week after Brivenz got permakilled in AGL going by this zany method. Justice would die a week after Cwars ended. Lol.

Can't help but think this would lead to 1 mega clan called the Gray Clan, and two slightly smaller ones: the Good Clan and the other Evil. We'd still be in the same situation, but I would have to listen to three times the babble on oclan.

Imaginative idea, but too chaotic to navigate.

The way the PKP system works is to reward the good PKers because the top 1% will always be the 1%.  The only people it'll punish are the casual players, or people who have been slowly working on their clanner alts.  Characters like Pomacanthus, Symiad, Thasgerd as an example, will almost be irrelevant during PK seasons due to their inactivity - and let me be clear on this, I don't mean that they suck, but that they aren't PKing as much.  By the time they get anywhere with their main clanner, the season would have already reset - even if the stats are re-spec'ed.


Edit: As the player behind the character with the most PKP in game, I've enjoyed PKPs a lot - it allowed me to "compete" with concarded characters on the field.  At the same time, it also made me feel less competitive in the arena because I haven't invested money into this character - which really made me not want to do ACFL/AGL anymore.  I do feel like there are a few problems with competition in DSL in general, and PKP is one of them.  I do wish that PKP was completely removed, and that concards are kept in check (probably unlikely, since that directly funds the game and that no one would actually donate if it didn't give them a benefit to the game), and that Conclave spell dam is looked at.
