I look at it this way. The pvp zone is unhealthy for the server's long term health. Solos are at the bottom of the food chain in RvR. When you take away the bottom of the food chain it has a ripple effect through the rest of it.
Action has been sparse the last week and it really has killed the small man action in the Frontier.
I support trying to accommodate the solo player base, but they create most of their own problems for themselves. Maybe bring back solo teleport and Trellebourg? At least they are now in the Frontier and subject to being ganked liked everyone else. Taking action out of the frontier is not good by any means.
Not sure I would call it taking action out of the frontier. 8 mans killing solo's or small mans killing solo's isn't action. Its RP farming.
There are a lot of unhealthy things for the server long term (8 mans letting other realms kill their realm mates for the sake of /fairfight, etc.). Why do we have to cater to the 8 man's and small man's desire for easy RP's when that is unhealthy for the solo long term viability?
Why do solo's need to be the bottom of the food chain? You said it yourself, small man action in the frontier has become sparse. Welcome to the solo action for the last 4+ months. You are now the bottom of the food chain and it has a tendency to suck. The server has started eating itself alive and you are worried about your action, when solo's have been leaving in masses because of the toxic play styles. Give the solo community something worth going out into the frontier, without getting mowed down by larger numbers constantly, and they will come.
You completely missed the point bud.
Care to explain then?
You complained about a smaller bottom (solo) food chain because of ripple effect. - that has been happening a lot longer then just recently, largely in regards to 8 mans/small mans play style.
Complained further about small man action. - Again, solo's want real action, not getting ran over by small man +. Why do you think the pvp/1v1 "arenas" are so popular with the solo crowd.
You say you support solo players, but then blame their problems on themselves. (I can't speak for everyone, so take this as is) All they want is to be able to start a fight, and finish a fight on a semi regular basis without getting ran over by a mass numbers. Key here is semi regular basis. Getting ran over by larger numbers infrequently isn't an issue. It is a problem when that is all that happens.
