Let's face it, that thread was going nowhere. PvP in FFXI is not only not its focus, it's not even a consideration. This game was designed, built and conceived as a PvE game. PvP, while an entertaining distraction, is simly not a major concern. There are some changes we'd all like to see to make Ballista/Brenner more within control of the player to start and run, but re-vamping it or making up some ridiculously complicated player run version isn't the answer.
You want PvP, go to another game.
As for us "trolling" your thread, no one was planning to discuss your idea because it's not that great of an idea. The only reason it's even still ON the front page is BECAUSE of our sillyness. Otherwise, it would have slid down the front page and into obscurity. So you should be happy that your idea is still there at all.
Back when i played FFXI No one really did it then either, I think I messed with the guild one like 3 times and it was more, lets see how much we can have fun. The game wasn't balanced for PVP so any topic on an archaic system tacked on for almost no one, of course is be derailed really quick.
This is mostly a user moderated forum and the users have spoken, The karma system works well dont like what they ae doing rate them down, but don't be offended when it happens to you in return. If they felt your post was useful it wouldn't have derailed so fast, I'm sorry you spent 5 hours on it and no one liked it but thats what happens. Sometimes the best laid plans fail.
