Unlock existing and create a NEW 14-day locked Loyalty campaign (same rewards as 30-day)

Faction lock is great for those that want it, but it is not really workable or fair to lock the existing ones so that many players are locked out of playing their other faction characters until after the 30-day window has passed. Additionally, the faction stacking and population balance issues are more pronounced now as people are locked into a faction and have no choice to play another even if said faction is zerging constantly.

@ZOS_BrianWheeler, Please reverse the faction locks on the existing campaigns, and create a new 14-day locked campaign with same reward table as for 30-day campaigns for those that would like it. Ideally this would be a no-CP campaign, so it is open to all players from newcomers to game to veterans without the CP advantage.

    I get my rewards twice as often for being loyal to my faction? I would do it. My only worry is the camp not having very many players.

    Locked or unlocked, I'll play where ever there isn't an hour long queue, disconnects that remove you from the campaign, and unbearable lag. It's surprising that more people don't just do that.

    Not to worry, faction lock rpers have assured the forums time and again faction lock is incredibly popular. I am sure it would be absolutely packed.

    Good idea though OP, increased rewards for faction loyalty, nice to see positive reinforcement as a suggestion. An awesome for you.

    Hmmm
    If it worked like you described, then I would hop onto that locked campaign with most of my chars and then could play the normal 30 day campaign with all the other chars. And I would play pvp more as I would love to get more transmuation crystals.
    I like this idea.

    people want faction lock in 30 day for the long commitment . people who don't want faction lock don't need the 30 day campaign since they are always swapping factions: who wins the objective pvp is irrelevant to them. Hence faction lock is implemented on 30 day campaign any other implementation would be illogical.

    Hmm. I am pretty sure that I am a person and I clearly shared that I prefer a shorter 14 day locked campaign. I also care about who is winning the campaign when it is balanced.

    You are making some major leaps in logic and silly assumptions about what is important to people other than yourself that are contrary to what people state for themselves. This is not logic.

    Sharing why you prefer a longer 30-day commitment might have more value to this discussion don’t you think?

    Alternately, delete the dead 7-day CP campaign and replace it with an unlocked 30-day CP campaign.

    I enjoy playing the map and campaign. I don't support faction locks, but I think having both a locked and unlocked 30-day CP campaign would be a great compromise.

    And unlock the no cp one.

    Thanks for this suggestion - it would be one good way (out many options) to create a situation where everyone can play and enjoy the game as they wish.
