im making this post in the hopes it doesn't turn into a rants and flame post and it can be a serious discussion. Ultimately i respect the devs decision on how pop pans out and we will all have fun regardless but im wanting to know if you guys would consider allowing the AK level restrictions for pop zones to be implemented with the launch of PoP. It is my understanding that when PoP is released that all zones will require a flag to access them beyond the level 46 tier 1 zones. On AK for the vast majority of the server life ( I played on AK from around 2009 and these level access to zones were in place then) we had additional access to other zones and these were as follows: PoV, PoStorms, CoD = level 55 PoTactics = level 60 BoT and Hoh = level 62 From what i have heard and please correct me if i am wrong, the reason for making all zones to require flags is to make the PoP experience more authentic to how it was when pop launched originally and to make us earn access to zones rather than be handed them on a plate. I respect that point of view however the closer we get to PoP and the more i think of it I worry that it is going to make the first week or 2 much less enjoyable. I suspect the majority of the server will spend a lot of time in the PoJustice flagging area fighting for hails for the trials to gain access to the better zones, for the vast majority of the server these trials wont be challenging it will just be a roadblock of trivial content locking people out of content. The Tier 1 raid mobs for the most part will also be trivial for the raiding guilds, so you will be locked out of content based on a queue rather than difficult content or a long key quest, obviously this was a thing on live when PoP launched but I would argue on live there wasnt 5 guilds decked out in VT gear with full knowledge of all of the encounters. I understand that all pop progression mobs are required to be killed for progression into the EP's and beyond but my main concern is access to the XP camps at first and allowing unguilded players access to some of the better zones. worst case i suspect we see arguments and tension around the justice trials and also the raiding guilds locking down the postorms camps for the BoT key required for planar progression which may limit access to zones for more casual folks. In my mind if we allowed the AK level restrictions to be in place from day 1 it will allow us all to spread out and find a half decent xp camp without being on top of each other fighting for hails in the justice trials or being the lucky guild who gets PoInnovation in the first few rotation kills allowing access to plane of tactics. Thank you for taking the time to read this even if the response is a hard no, we all still love the server and a few months after the launch of PoP we will all be in the same position.
