Y'all might be a bit alarmist, but what do I know. Gotta agree with the general sentiment of the thread here, though. Since me and my friends started playing here (as Asmodians, if this wasn't obvious) our faction only conquered a couple lower Abyss forts and the occasional Roah or Asteria Fortress.
This means we have no KKM, no UAS, no DM (Sillus) and about 1/3 less Ceranium medals overall from sieges. The net AP loss can be around 500k or more per week, depending on how your RNG goes. This is a huge difference and as a consequence I don't think I've seen a single day without anyone wanting to trade all their Kinah and/or items for Elyos ones ever since I started.
It's actually kinda depressing. Of course this has to do with no one taking up the flag for Asmodians and leading siege but on the other hand I also don't think it's entirely the player at fault. Elyos were always the more 'desireable' race, thats why Asmodians required some incentives all throughout AIONS history. Any admin making it this far into my paragraph, please consider giving people some kind of.. enticement to play Asmodians again. Not just a 7-day mount at level 10.
