Theres a topic on release side about this, but im gonna go into more detail.

Tael has already said that the prestige gain will be removed after commander rank, which covers several problems but not all of them.

People are still going to go in there to farm newbies and to play, just to cause grief, its always been done, and I have no doubt that some more...particular players in the playerbase will do it this time.

Wouldnt it be better to force anyone over 2ndRA to use a "Vet Orb" of some kind. Im sure the Mod Orb model is still in the code or db, it would make sense to lock out a vet to an orb of his own, that cant be shot, killed, fire or lock planets. It would allow vets to help, whilst not interfering with the planets etc. It would solve pretty much all problems with newbie that I can think of that includes newb farming, and griefing.

Also something that came up, is knowing who locked what planet. Not only would this be useful in newbie, so you can see who to ask to unlock your planet, but in the MV also, for knowing which person on which fleet locked. But I assume that the UI is going to get a tweak anyway before 1.483 goes live...

I think this is what mods are for. We have a human watchdog element to police the newbie server. Sometimes, it doesnt always work like it is supposed to, but normally, it does. If something comes up, a mod on duty will handle it. Why code something else in?

we're not coding something in, we are just turning back on the code we disabled because so many vets said they needed an incentive to help new players out...

What happened? Well instead, there are more people using newbie to exploit or harrass (and thusly driving away potential new customers) the new players.

So you gues lost the privledge. It was abused repeatidly to the point even the staff was having trouble keeping up with the issues. Many new players dont know how to call staff or how to realize a vet abusing the newbie server...

You can thank your fellow vets for this. Also, penaltys for harrassment in newbie are also going up. Any vets found harrassing new players in the newbie server will be sumarrily kicked without warning.

Just keep ruining the game.....punish the peeps that play errr pay.


On a side thought....how about instead of that strange banner that shows when you log into a server you have a few words of wisdom to the new peeps in noob? Such as how to report abuse. Others stuff???
