@aegon: It's just nice to go back to pure turn based, but with a very small twist that adds a good amount of strategy. I'm playing it on hard and you really need to manage your BP to do well. Story is whatever so far, but I don't really play games for the story, I'm a mechanics mang.
The only time you get invaded is by people who only spend their time invading. It's a complete waste of time for both parties if one person is progressing through the game, and the other is someone who's done this shit a thousand times before. You stand no chance against invaders any more, because they all know the bullshit they need to kill low level players without gear.
PvP should be reserved for the generally agreed upon PvP areas. Fuck you, let me kindle my bonfire.
