    I highly doubt most houses are going to give every member above x rank the ability to just pass out credits daily.  Without the credit bonus, I don't really see any point in using favors anymore.  It's a public acknowledgement, sure,  but it's no different than just saying thank you on ht or writing to logs. 

    As for city's, I think this is going to remove the ability to slowly demonstrate your worth.  Without a standardized system, which is going to look check listy, it's just going to be back to counting favors, which makes the fact that favors are now a glorified writelog seem pretty silly.  I think adding this functionality in addition to the old one would have made more sense.

    All in all, as someone that was pretty darn close to the next rank in city and house,  I am not going to say I am overly pleased.  I understand the push for this,  but getting months worth of work reset is kinda a downer.  As hard as it is to get city favors in some cities, I'm sure getting a promotion is going to be twice as fun. 
    You and me both... So close to CR5 :(

    Anyway, I would hope that this encourages flexibility in the rankings (and no need to binge-HF people to ranks). I can see the argument that it could cause issues with CFs now losing their appeal, though.
    - (Eleusis): Ellodin says, "The Fissure of Echoes is Sarathai's happy place."
    - With sharp, crackling tones, Kyrra tells you, "The ladies must love you immensely."
    - (Eleusian Ranger Techs): Savira says, "Most of the hard stuff seem to have this built in code like: If adventurer_hitting_me = "Sarathai" then send("terminate and selfdestruct")."
    - Makarios says, "Serve well and perish."
    - Xaden says, "Xaden confirmed scrub 2017."

    I think you're probably right, which is a huge shame.

    Most houses and cities could absolutely afford it and most higher-ups in the game are absolutely capable of judicious use of something like this (not just passing out credits daily for no reason), but this is exactly the sort of delegated authority/discretion that orgs in the game are really, really terrible about. And if your higher-up people aren't capable of this kind of discretion - well then the demote command is really easy to use now too!

    I don't know what qualifies as "absolutely afford" it, but neither Cyrene nor the Outriders can, especially if just anyone is passing them out.

    Edit: That is, if we want to go back to regular credit sales (which are on hold due to low volume of credits) and credit prizes for games, etc. The overall flow is a definite net negative as it currently stands, and we need to have a certain amount banked.

    Are there safeguards from someone getting pissed and demoting everyone in the city that's ranked under them before quitting?

    Can you city demote/promote people even if they are offline like you could do with favours?
    Somewhere I have a very enjoyable to read log. (Gosh, I hope I still have it.)
