This is absolutely just appalling straight up. You do realise the entirety purpose of the arenas are for glory points, which was the exact same thing in retail. Arenas providing glory points also gives the players who are from different time zones (across the other side of the world), people who work shift work even in this current timezone the opporunity to be able to somewhat stay competitive in being able to rank up.
Removing this, the only way to rank up is through EOB, Kamar, IWW, IS, EB and sieges. You also do realise, a majority of the population has to pug (quick entry) these instances because no one will take or accept someone into a premade of any sort whether it's EOB, Kamar or IWW. They're forced to quick entry, and end up losing for 10 gp. People in these different time zones or people who work late, that's not enough to be able to maintain any sort of rank. This server has like a mean girl clique, and if you're not apart of it you cant join into those instances to gain rank. The new players, players who don't socialise or interact with the majority of the population whether it's language barriers, or just don't vibe. So it's already hard enough for these people to even gain gp to begin with, simply because of that. 10 gp for every loss which a majority of people who do quick group because they cant get into a premade.
But back onto the subject about removing gp from arenas, I understand that you want people to be able to interact in sieges and whatnot more to be able to gain gp and thigns like that. But arena gp is a core fundamantal of aion, has it has been for a very long time. You do realise, to mimise the risk of people abusing, or dodging, you could just do what other private servers have done. if you don't enter the arena, the ticket is consumed, easy done. Problem fixed. Either enter, face your opponent, or dodge the queue or don't enter and lose your ticket and your gp from that, that way it is also much easier to monitor those people who would continue to queue dodge even with losing their ticket for their other account to win and get the gp, and just easy ban them.
On the topic of sieges as a main contribution to gp, how are you promoting diversity and inclusivity to those people from different paths of life, from different parts of the world where they can't even rank up because the main source of their gp is the arenas, do you expect those people to just wake up at 3-5am just to attend a siege for 1 hour? You realise that is extremely unhealthy, because I know there are quite a few people on this server who are from different parts of the world, whether it's the United States, South America, Australia, Canada. How do you address these people on your server? Who would like to rank up and gain gp? Because they like this server, they like this population, they like being able to do everything that retail had offered them, by simply doing those EOB, Kamar, IWW, IS, EB and not to forget ARENAS. Sure, they'd attend sieges every now and then, but not every single one at 5am. I feel like there are a lot of ways to fix the issues of queue dodging in arenas, and the problems with gp in it. I feel like you're just choosing the most easiest way, the least hassle and least stressful way. Rather than just being able to tackle to problem head on, by consuming the arena ticket and monitoring the people who do go into arenas alone for a quick simple fix. Similiar to the way you've caught siege traders.
Please explain to me how these people from these different parts of the world, can feel a sense of inclusivity and feeling like their diversity matters, because from the sounds of this.
To put it blatantly, from the sounds of this. You just don't care about those players, and you don't care about them enjoying the game of being able to rank up. Because that's the point of gp in Aion, there's a wide range of ways to gain gp, ranging from the instances, to the sieges, to the pvp instances, to arenas. Which I believe, the purpose of that is to accommodate for people to be able to earn gp in a way that is able to fit into their schedule, into their timezone and into their way of playing aion.
