Add faction locked 7-day campaign or put 48-72 hour acct cooldown on hops in same campaign

The faction hopping is occurring en masse where players are going from low pop faction to high pop or Emp faction with daily frequency, on weekends, and during prime time. It's absolutely ridiculous on Kyne NA-PC.

Sure, some want to faction hop so they can play with friends or even play on underdog but those are by far the minority. This absence of any restrictions whatsoever has been continuously and totally abused by the majority of those that do so.

Will you all please do something? Put a 48 or 72 hour timer on accounts for hopping on same account alt from another faction on the same campaign. SIMPLE & VERY REASONABLE!!!!

(won't solve all but will help minimize)

Or... just add or change one campaign to be an acct faction locked 7-day campaign for the duration.

[side note: I asked the mods to close and lock the thread if people keep trolling it... be respectful, present your arguments and let it be after that.... don’t be petty, disrespectful or try to derail my thread please]

    Just freaking stop with the faction hopping threads. It’s not ruining campaigns or effecting anything. Oh boo hoo about a scroll on a dead campaign.

    You don't get it; it's all about being able to control another player's experience. That's why most of the clowns that support lock seem to automatically think it will make people group up and follow them more. There needs to be a lock so they can see that there is virtually no difference in reality, except for the population imbalance being even bigger than it is now.

    I know if a lock comes, I'd honestly play less or go roam around outside a group even more just to spite the players that wanted the lock. PvP has been going downhill anyway with all the proc sets and changes they keep pushing, not to mention the extreme lag.

    a dead campaign? Kyne is the PIPELINE for new PvP players...

    If you have a coherent rebuttal or counter-proposal, by all means STATE IT!

    If u aren't capable of at least that, kindly keep quiet please. :) Thank You in advance


    I have one...

    Game is dead. Just let it die.

    There aren't enough players left for this, everyone is too busy playing Apex.

    PC/NA is so dead, in the Vivec campaign the AD nerds rob the EP scrolls every night and cap the map.

    First sign of a dead campaign, people stop playing when they can't win, and Apex is a sh*t-ton more fun.

    Kyne is a pipeline of zergling players who refuse to go to sotha or shor or Vivec because they can use their golded lowbey gear and pick on new players. That’s it.

    In reality, that is the minority.. no reason to make big changes in game or develop to cater to them. The vast pool of potential PvP players get turned off to PvP totally by those few gold-geared rerollers on Kyne logging cross-faction alts to "farm" them.

    Big part of why I'm requesting a timer...


    For those saying the game is dead.. that doesn't matter if the devs still working on it.. they need to fix broken stuff.. (esp since they adding new content quite often)

    the longtime players can also help others learn and lead and recruit them.. it's when they prey on them that's the problem..

    Just preventing all vet players from playing there is not a solution as that limits the opportunity to help teach them and gear them up.

    There is no legitimate reason NOT to allow a lock of at least 48-72 hours.

    Or have faction locked campaigns if not all.

    The playing with friends argument you can all toddle off to vivec or wherever is left unlocked.

    @ZOS_BrianWheeler please, can we get sone insights into what you are doing on this front?

    @ZOS_GinaBruno any nudge you can give?

    I'm guessing you're one of those people that says they only switch to play with their friends or for a challenge, but yet only play solo or on whatever side is winning. Just a coincidence hmmmmm

    I actually tend to play the weaker faction in campaigns as it gives us much more of a challenge.

    This would require a massive overhaul and please a small fraction while isolating a whole bunch of people from playing their characters they earned.

    The game was released without this intent 5 years ago, and 5 years (and probably thousands of "faction lock" threads) later, they still are not budging on that. Can you not just be happy with playing and developing your own characters? Why is it so necessary to try to control how other people play?


    No "massive overhaul" required. The timer mechanisms already exist as anyone that played since launch knows. They devs just neglected (or maybe forgot) to turn them back on.


    Or to be more correct: the devs turned them off and left them off on purpose. No neglect or forgetting involved.

    While I agree with you (that there shouldn't be faction locks)....this isn't true. The first 3ish? years of this game had (an admittedly faulty and easy to bypass) faction lock.

    That's good to hear and I gives props to people that do that, but unfortunately the majority of people that swap only want to be on the winning side.

    Personally I just want to see a somewhat balanced map with good fights for the health and longevity of the game.

    There used to be so many good battles in this game, but now everyone just swaps to the winning side and triple zerg the map down. Not much fun in that for either side.

    There needs to be timer or lock on these hoppings.

    The PS4 EU pvp is utter joke much thanks to this and there really no reason not to have locked campaign.

    You can leave other open for these boosters, gloryhunters or whatever you call them.

    Having said that the PvP is all but dead at the moment anyways thanks to been neglected for ages now.

    What do you think faction locking will achieve, when it can be circumvented so easily by just spending a few dollars and a few hours of time on a second, or third account? It’s not the panacea I think people are hoping for.
