The server population is declining everyday with people leaving for various reasons, but ORP abuse is the main factor. The amount of time needed to catch someone online, setup a fob, raid and then for around 80% of raids to end in combat logging (in my year of experience here) is crazy. With 3 days protection from all now and full ORP, PvP is just not encouraged.
Changes have to made to revitalise this PvP cluster and stop so many tribes from leaving. My suggestion is to remove full ORP and replace it with a new system. This new system would have highly increased turret damage and structure hp when someone is offline. This means that yes logging off can be abused, but the persons base can still be raided. I would love to see the server population increase to what it was and for tribes to feel like they can actually raid without so many barriers and worries.
Please as always feel free to discuss below and let me know your thoughts. I am sure we can all agree that the server has been slowly dying for a few months now and something needs to be changed.
