This is obviously a post regarding the PvP servers only, but why not make Vanarch decided by a seige mechanic? Think of Lineage 2 but just break it into 3 territories (4 once new zone is out) Players can do the whole vote thing for the vanarchs of Allamenthia, Velika, and Kaiator let the smaller territories be decided by weekly sieges just like Lineage 2.
I would love this; the game I played was Shadowbane and the city sieging in that game was the best I've ever played.
I think that each province needs to be able to have at least 2 keeps per province and you have to fight over the right to design and build the keep.
I am disappointed this thread has not received more attention. I feel this is a good idea and without posts from the community the developers will not look at posts like this... Please take the time to /sign or post something to construct this idea further!
Or move the conquest to Northern Arun, that territory that we can't explore yet.
