or you could just make the localized resources instanced and untrade-able/drop-able. Then nobody would bother to camp them since they are abundant and have no real value.

lmao sorry marcus but i too find this concept very messy and not worth it. Now, abundant local resources sounds wayy better ¦] :twisted: :twisted: ¦]

Regarding the Localized Resource problem:
1 - Make them randomly appear and then vanish when harvested.
2 - Make harvesting them an XP-ensive event, eliminating the ability of alts to participate in a realistic fashion.

Seems like this obviates both palisades and alts.

doesn't really eliminate the alt problem if you're not camping them, as then the alts can go "do things" while hunting down the new location and get the xp needed. I think just randomly moving, or at least semi-randomly, may be enough.

Just allow us to bash non-claimed walls and make collecting last 30-90 seconds, so people can have a chance "to fight" for it.

What is point of this game?
We could just have a big green button, and when you press it, text "you win" appears in the screen.
Everything else is just useless tedium, right?

no need to be silly. I am just trying to say that it is important to try and remember why stuff that is implemented, was implemented at all. if an item is implemented for a purpose and then doesnt fit that purpose, is it relevant to try to fix it at all. etc.
