    I don't know how everybody else feels about this, but i think a server reset would be good :) and i also know that tog want to split into factions cause of the number of people we have.....but the sooner the better. Ill be going solo. Afresh start would benefit the server population

    Also the use of C4, it should be turned back on now that most people know how to play.

    I personally think a "Tribes" like system would be great. Would be able to move away from the crowded TOG Town, into smaller groups. This I think would benefit the server from the lag caused by our monstrous(but beautifully constructed) city scape.

    The Tribes could both have one of the admins each, allowing for no special treatment(no ghosting around to scout out the other tribes base and supplies) and to make sure all order is kept amongst the tribes.

    With that note... Shotgun being in Melkers tribe if this happens. Mainly as I know where he will want to set up camp. haha

    Also, with C4. if we are going to have the tribe system, it could be interesting to have C4 enabled or at least have airdrops increased to prosper content activity amongst the tribes raiding against each other.

    Problem with those sorts of idea, is all the exceptional players will gravitate towards each other and will end up dominating.

    Make it a Free-For-All server. No more big clumps of people (TOG included) grouping up and making the server become stale.

    I do like this idea. Just group up with some friends and play like everyone else.

    Yeah ill be going sort of solo, maybe 2 other peeps if there in my area...but c4 should be turned on straight away none of this holding back crap, other wise peoples bases will get to what they are now, and you will need 20 c4 just to get to 1 box....... if you do well to get a metal base at some point in the game your doing very well..

    Oh and a reset should be at a time when msotly everyboy is on so it gives everybody a chance.

    Might seem strange for a TOG server, but removing the TOG tags might be a good idea as well!

    No C4 was dealt with like it is because its too easy with C4. I prefer how it is.

    Every night you would go to sleep, then the next day you would wake up and all your efforts from the previous day is gone or ruined.

    Grenades are fine for breaking in.

    Ya Antor and I always drop from the main group, just gets to noisy in the TS chat with everyone.

    But we play on the same server, and occasionally on we are on the TS with all.

    As for C4 it is the reason we also stopped playing, till Harrowed told us C4 crafting had been disabled, I reckon if it gets turned back on we will once again depart.

    Works for me. Would be interesting but I agree about the C4 making it too easy. Grenades do work fine for raiding :D

    Server Restart and C4

    Personally, I think a server restarts a good idea once the new modding program is implemented. Often that means a server wipe.

    My personal opinion about C4 is keep it how it is now. Conserve the C4 and make grenades. It keeps people a little more honest. I too have played with the c4 on and it was like Deadzy says. 16 hours of work gone in a 4 hour period when you finally sleep.

    Because we are ToG we are a target. I can assure you all that if C4 is on ..there would no longer be a tog town. 100% sure of that. I too get frustrated at not having the C4 to go raiding. It just means we have to be smarter.

    Tribes.

    I am still trying to think how to do this. When a DC and DVC are implemented I am sure they will have a good idea as to what to do as to become the DC you have to have a game plan of how you want to move forward with the game now and in the future. Whoever takes this role will try do the best for all players, both the crafters and raiders alike.

    Personally I think we build a communal ToG base..singular.. In Tog town that is a No contact "Safe" zone for all ToG. I think each tribe moves to a valley and sets up their base with their tribe memebers and then controls that valley. Id like to see a night or nights where ToG band together resources and attack the other factions perhaps once a month. Easy to arrange as a group as there are other groups that are more organised than ToG in some aspects. The smaller attacks whenever a tribe wishes to attack.

    Personally I wont feel right attacking other ToG intentionally. For others they wont have that remorse. In GameVox I think tribes have their own channel. and a Tog town channel for general chit chat if people wish. Again this will fall to our DC and DVC to implement.

    What do you all think?

    Good ideas Melk,
    Would have to say the communal area would have to act as a newbie haven until they have some gear and decided which tribe to join. Also some players might have to become communal watch-keepers to make sure the area is not violated or raided (too much)....

    Re tribes I think a tog town is still a good idea but more as a starting nest. Once players leave to join a tribe or start their own they would then don a modified TOG tag, e.g. TOG Red, TOG Blue, or even change the colour of their in game name to be blue or red as Sham Rein has done?

    I would only worry that factional players may stockpile valuable items in tog town where it's safe so there would have to be some mechanic where established bases weren't allowed for players that have moved in to a faction..

    TOG town should be a shared Building for starters and the only other buildings should belong to the "Over-watchers" of TOG Town. One of these players would need to own the main doors to shared lodging so once players leave, they can be removed from the shared doors list. This way they can't leave things in TOG Town as protection.
