Rezoning GP to either safe or combat zone
As a relatively new to this server, I noticed a few challenges I came to face involving GP. It appears that the dungeon itself has become the playground for bullying low-level players by other highly geared players and their pledges.
I also noticed a significant amount of name-calling, racial slurs on the global chats which are been broadcasted without filters. From what I have observed, these hatred words appear to be triggered due to unanticipated attacks committed by well equipped/high-level pledge and the name I came across the most was the NO CAP.
It appears, they are very active in PVP and granted, PVP is a big part of gameplay, however, if the lower level or casual players who are ill-equipped are being randomly been targeted or being systematically bullied by bigger and stronger pledges, then the true meaning of PVP demise. PVP stands for player VS player. Not a players slaughter other players, who are not participating nor anticipating in PVP. There is also a PVE part of the game, which I can assure, more people would enjoy.
Having said that, undoubtedly, GP is the great exp gaining ground for all of us. Thus, it should not be used as a mere battleground for some high rankers for their killing entertainment.
My suggestion is, to convert the GP into either a safety zone or battle zone so, whoever is seeking PVP, should do so at other open places where they can freely roam and not distributing others.
Please forgive any spelling, grammar errors, and thank you for reading this long message.
Re: Rezoning GP to either safe or combat zone
The ToS/CoD have lowbie zones that are allowed access until level 60 that offer really good EXP. The Giran Prison is only 1 leveling spot that exists, and there are many other zones. unfortunately, I do not posses the ability to change map zones.. its a client side allocation that makes the client display combat vs safety vs normal.. and it would create confusion.
