So do you consider sabotaging guilds (as spies) an exploit? If yes I supposed that will be able to report. I really hate those who join just to check the movements of a guild only to inform their main guild and organize gankins and so on.
No, it's not an exploit. I agree it's a despicable behavior, but there is no bug being abused there.
is there going to be a big difference of karma gain or loss between executing, knocking unconscious or just attacking or looting since that would point to support type players falling behind just because of their choice of skillset.
There is a big difference, the Karma change for just attacking is minimal. Anyway, if you want to raise your Karma, temple offerings, divine quests and PvE is the way to go. "Hunting" Evil players is secondary.
it would definitely be better if we weren't allowed to change our alignments but the things we did changed our alignments and we had to live the consequences of it. "alignment" is not a thing that you can control by just saying you belong to one.
Yes, that would be more "realistic". However, we have to sacrifice realism on the altar of gameplay here
That said, I would have preferred you giving a rough figure on what 'large area' means in context of PvE only. I'm sorry, but I don't see what you said here in any shape or form:
Between 30% and 50% of the planet I'd say, but it's hard to tell right now. Also consider this information is not vital - how much content there is in Good-only areas is more important than size.
People can flat out state that they are going to bot in the game on this forum, or even state that they have hacked and stolen items from people on other games (a real life crime) with no consequences to them. And there's going to be 'large areas' of a botters dream. That's kind of... the opposite of 'not being gentle'?
By "not being gentle" I meant we'll run both scripted and manual controls, systematically. We'll get as sophisticated as we can. As for big talks, it's just big talks, can't pass judgment on "intentions".
'you are quickly drained of all vital energies if you step into a Good-only area'. Which would imply that you can enter these areas and can initiate a fight in them as evil character (which I'd appreciate)? But what is 'quickly' in this context?
Quickly means you have enough time to run out after noticing - a few seconds instead of immediate death. You can't enter and initiate a fight, sorry!
And you haven't explained the 'in game mechanical benefit' to being a Demon. Actually, it seems to be far more enticing to choose a Beastman for a competitive PvP player, since the Beastman has a better grasp on resources, can decide when and where to initiate combat and have an easier time to retreat.
It has a better grasp of Arboreus-specific resources, which are different from the ones of Syndesia and Tartaros Since there's no hostile PvP on Arboreus, I don't get what you mean by "easy retreat" - if you're doing PvP on Syndesia with a Beastman you have no advantage compared to Demons and Humans. If you're doing it on Tartaros, you're heavily penalized compared to Demons and quite penalized compared to Humans. Last but not least, you're cut off town conquest. I'd definitely say Beastman is the worst race if you want to PvP, as it's meant to be
In the spotlight it is mentioned, that Good alingment players won't be able to loot other Good or Neutral players.
Are there any exceptions from this rule? For example looting a friends corpse and holding to his items till he respawns?
You can allow your Party / Guild members to loot you
One question, how important will your alignment be in regards to championing neutral gods? I mean, i'm more inclined to play good but lore wise, I'd love to be a champion of Galvanos. Will I be able to do so with a really high karma?
Yes, you will. Neutral Gods don't care about your Karma
