Re: No more blue keeps?
It may be to have Creeps stay out and fight. When Freeps start flipping keeps, the reaction Creepside is usually along the lines of "Just wait at Grams or quest, let them PvE and leave", which I think is a poor reaction.
Granted, there's almost never enough ranked Creeps/healers/organization to deal with a Freep raid, but it's still lame to not even try.
I like that they're not flipping the keeps as much, seems like they're focusing more on PvP rather than having the two raids sneaking around each other capturing things rather than fighting each other. That said, I wouldn't mind them taking keeps every once and a while.
From what I've seen on Creepside, a majority of Creeps would rather quest for infamy (hate hate hate hate) than PvP. Since this is such a low population server, you can usually get more infamy questing than PvP-ing, but still... I don't even play for infamy or rank anymore, just for the PvP aspect. And when there's 7 Freeps out and 20 Creeps, but 16 of the Creeps are questing or in the Delving of Fror, that's just no fun.. (not that 7 v 20 is fun either).
There's a lot of issues on this server, most stemming from the low population and veteran Freeps remaining while veteran Creeps leave, but what server doesn't have its problems.
