Only new factions start with peaceful status, others will have to earn it by not being declared on and not declaring.
can i just say, everything is reset, everyone should be set to peaceful?,
I would like to know how long till we gain peaceful staus by avoiding war ????
We have only declared on 1 faction back when i first opened faction Founded 28/06/06...
How are we supposed to earn peaceful statis by avoiding wars???
i'm sure just 1 faction declaring on all now would make that next to impossible.
Think i should of already been given peaceful statis according amount of wars faction we declared & how long ago,
not just by avoiding war which is the part i find rediculous.
i have never declared on any since....
within mins of update we have been declared on...
so that update seems pretty lame.
just my opinion.
I THINK these updates are bloody brilliant. i think they are really good because i started a big brother house in my faction. prize of $200,000 lol. and noone can war me or take my respect. Thats good because im not loooking to war anyone aswell.

So bascially the guy is saying the future is about him so ched should do everything he wants. Well guess what there are more players then yourself so just stop moaning and get on with it.
whenever you get a 3k hit chain that gets erased come back and rephrase that...
b)you declare on 50 factions that gradually get empty with the continuing of war...Ppl who go to FED, ppl constantly running away with no penalty to the faction (how about a quick "move to" button so you can hit someone overseas?, or respect penalty for running away from chains?) This sucks!
d)well, since these upgrades messed up the whole meaning of HoF, seems the only way for a faction to stand out was to be in the Chain HoF...Would be sad for some to see all PT factions in the HoF, and some others of "not-so-powerfull and not-so-staffed" ppl be in a prestiged position... SUCKS BIG! (and before anyone posts it is a good measure, try looking to your computer for 23 straight hours with an aim in mind and se it go away!!! If u never did that, then shut the f*ck up!!!)
e) If it became impossible to do some serious chaining, with declares up to 50 factions, this one was quite unnecessary...
maybe if you could make some factions your allies, and allow moving between them...
They got plenty of room for you, they can even upgrade to add more space, only now you'll have to stay put and get hit back.
Let me tell you something...even when chaining in PT-F, we had to go back to our own factions, so we could lose respect the same way!
f) let's all stop chaining and go into peacefull. Then, what happens? no-one declares on no-one. BS!!!!
g) These seem kind of nice, makes ppl want to own a faction and raise their respect to raise their gains. Seems the only measure for motivating ppl to start a faction and fight for it.
I would also like to add some measures:
h) factions that reach 1k respect automatically go into aggressive mode.
i) if a player leaves a warring faction and starts a new one within 1 month, automatically gets a warring status.
j) "Peacefull" factions get little-none respect from OC's
k) staff ppl don't get an early warning about updates
l) staffers can't be in factions, regardless of their type.
m) staff can only play the game if their staff position doesn't give them DB access or any other advantage over the regular player.
n) end of the respect HoF, or substitution for another kind of ranking.
If all the factions, right after the update, started with peaceful status, nobody could declare on nobody...lol
But all of us are going to adapt this new update... some (new) factions will try to stay peaceful to earn some money from the OCÂ´s, while others will continue as it has been, attacking and being attacked.
The only disadvantage i see is the fact that the agressive factions, when they start to declare war, will be declared by all HoF factions, because i think that is going to decrease the number of attackable factions.
So, think before you declare on the waker factions, because the sharks will be searching for new (and rarer) food!
