    I still disagree though, on some level. I don't think that dipping your toe in the water of organizational conflict should make you Open PK. It really makes it impossible for the smaller, lesser skilled group to get into conflict in the first place.

    I don't think enlisting as a soldier should be considered "dipping your toe in the water of organizational conflict". It should be considered diving into the deep end. A city guard could be the toe-dipping.

    There are plenty of RL countries that have home defense forces, like paramilitary police, but no standing army.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_without_armed_forces#Countries_with_no_standing_army_but_limited_military

    Relevant note from above links: Japan is not included in this list because, while the country may officially have no military according to Article 9 of its Constitution, it does have the Japan Self-Defense Forces, a military force for national territory defence that may only be deployed outside Japan for UN peacekeeping missions.


    So, the way it could work in Achaea: You enlist in the city guard for home defense and peace-keeping. You enjoy the perks of no XP loss inside your city, dismantling bombs inside your city, etc.

    However, if war breaks out, you enlist as a soldier only if you want to actively engage in city raiding, arming tanks, and being open PK to other soldiers.

    I'm pretty sure if you want open PK all day every day you join the Mark. Isn't that the point?

    That makes you open PK to everyone, everywhere. What I'm suggesting is letting you belong to the city guard so you can defend your city without worrying about being open PK, or enlisting as a soldier and actively serving on the front-lines as an open PK target for other soldiers.

    Pardon me for being very late to the party, but it does it bother ANYBODY to see org logs posted here? Just seems rather tactless to throw sometimes worthless, sometimes way-too-revealing information to those who are not otherwise privy to the info.
    (Yeah yeah, I know, I could make an alt, blah blah. So go make an alt!)

    Also, in regards to why people join or quit the Achaean cities' armies, it's important to remember that for a lot of people, they joined with no context of how the war construct operates until recently. It would be frivolous now to do so, but maybe a rude awakening given how the early versions of War was not noteworthy.

    Org logs, especially city logs aren't private info. Should just assume that everyone in the game has access to all city logs at all times.

    Spoon-feeding them to the masses seems unnecessary. I'm not implying a privacy issue; I'm disappointed to see them displayed in this fashion (let's say, ruining the mystery and mystique).

    @Austere Agree but, its already a superficial honours line. People have this strange idea that being an enlisted soldier means you are a raid defender and not, y'know, the open PK target during wartime it actually means.

    Totally means more than that in eleusis! Gotta be in the army to be a ranger. :)

    Maggots own. They do things like debride wounds and show us how long the murder victim's been dead.

    They also serve as excellent human shields guinea pigs uhhh, rat hunters.

    @Tharvis Google doesn't lie, because google doesn't say anything other than: "We believe you might find an answer to your query at one of the following locations.", while pointing to a whole host of places that might be relevant to your search.

    @Melodie Yea, I just had to do that unsafe search. Now my eyes are burning! What has been seen can not be unseen.

    i.e. Don't bother logging in while this war is happening. Thanks for the confirmation. When will Druids be changed to actually be a viable 1v1 class?

    I would've thought a good time to be logging in. Maybe that's why your city got so destroyed.

    Sounds like Achaea needs military branches, like being able to join the city guard for defense reasons, or joining the army if you're 100% gung-ho about killing enemies.

    National Guard + army lol

    Eleusis doesnt need to hire guards, they have squirrels that throw nuts and acorns at enemies that approach.
