    brought this issue up ages ago, including to support

    It's been like a year now that certain people leech castle + zerg node wars to leech node money too. I wouldn't be surprised if there are players who have gotten over 20billion silver from not doing anything other than zerging and abusing the game as much as possible.

    Wait until some of the NEW PLAYERS that just came to bdo finds out about it, i'm sure that'll do wonders to their motivation

    Exactly this. Imo whole castle payout should be nerfed for 50%.

    Disgusting high amount of silver for top guilds sitting in their castles for months going uncontested.
    They basically earn more money for doing nothing than some new player grinding his life away on sausans.

    I appreciate getting the odd merc from a siege guild joining us for a few days especially if they are happy to share tips and tricks and help us win a node or two in the process.

    sounds like a NA problem, castle owning guilds in EU go to t3s and the payout from 2nd guilds is irrelevant (2xt3 for 100 members is insanely low, something like 10m/week compared to the 300/350 from a castle)

    Your math is wrong. 24 hours from Saturday 9:30 est is Sunday 9:30 est. Another 24 hours is Monday 9:30 est. Another 24 hours is Tuesday 9:30 est. 72 hours from that is Friday 9:30 est. So you could participate in a guild that wars on Wednesday and still make it back for siege on Saturday. You'd be 30 minutes late. All this stops siege guilds from doing is dropping all of their members. They'd have to leave defense forces in guild. Make it 8 days. Why 8 days? Because you'd have to leave the day before siege to make it back in time for siege, making it so you could never leave your guild if you wanted to siege that week or the following week.

    And then they'd get the castle for free again because they are too strong and nobody would fight them, just like on T3s, which is probably why they dropped to t2s.

    NA doesn't seem to have many strong guilds left.

    The servers are beyond laggy and the continuous denial of issues/lack of initiative to fix them makes siege guilds disband and their players move to t1 to play Dynasty Warriors (3 of the top10 guilds disbanded on NA in the last 2 months) and other top guilds drop on t2s because there is nothing left on t3/siege.

    You want to fix this, fix the servers, make people actually want to step up from t1s to t3s and siege again.

    no need to punish people who change guilds with 1 week or more of no guild buffs/activities.

    just make it so guildmembers cant get the node payouts unless they were already in the guild for more than a week.

    If you leave after siege on saturday, with 72hr CD you can join a new guild AFTER nodewar on tuesday. If you then do a nodewar on wednesday you can not leave and join a new guild BEFORE the cut off for sieges saturday again.

    With 72hr cooldown you can leave a castle owning guild after the siege, join a nodewar guild and get payout (not do a nodeway) and leave/join in time for next siege. This could give more income but will not let you help in nodewars AND siege in the same week

    Any kind of guild hopping is stupid, a week penalty when leaving any guild that holds a castle or node, sounds the best solution.

    1 week is to harsh penalty for those just wanting to change guild, we should go for the shortest cooldown that fix the problem.

    Remember that cooldown or leaving penalty will NOT just affect people guild jumping between siege and nodewar guilds, but for everyone changing guild (easiest fix is to increase the 24hr CD instead of making a new system on top of what we already have)

    then disable payouts for everyone who's less than a week in a guild.

    otherwise this looks too much like exploit, guild hopping can't possibly be part of the gameplay.

    Remove payouts from the game and replace it with a guild buff and that will solve this problem fast.

    8 days? Nah that's too little, make it a month, or a decade.

    Again, increasing the timer on an already existing mechanic is easier to do and more likely to happen then making a new mechanic to fix every issue we have.

    Changes to current mechanic should always be done over adding a new mechanic that may come with new bugs and issues.

    majority of guilds do this even the t1 ones as can only take 2 nodes a week any 1 guild.
