Ten new faction ranks have been added, bringing the total to 20. This will put around 150 factions (aggressive & peaceful) in to each rank allowing many aggressive factions to feel safer, and almost certainly convince peaceful factions to come out and enjoy a life of war.
But only about one of every 10 factions has enough people to be worth attacking.
Have the penalties for hitting outside of your rank been reduced at all?
Exactly! My faction is rank 4 and out of 181 rank 4 factions only 61 are aggressive, and of those 61 factions ONE has more than 3 members in it...how is this an incentive to go aggressive when we have no one to war?
edit // Just wanted to save this info to see how these figures change over the next few months...
Total - 3,614 Factions found
Aggressive - 1,306 Factions found
yea, just great to see people creating lots of multies and getting them on their faction so they can be on a lower rank. Hope that crap is controled and finished cause it just sucks.
Besides that guess this is a good thing, but still won´t be enough...

Are you serious? You must be having a brain stop or something. Wake up Ched... people in peacefull factions is because they havent enought time to be in warring factions. Do you serious belive any peacefull faction will turn agressive? Come on Ched... with the years passing by you should learning... instead you are going back.:s
I hate to be the negative agreement here, but this will not make anyone go to war...
A complete change to the current war system is the only way people will go aggressive and it will need to be forced on them... Do it two says, change the war system to be fairer for all including the casual player and the all the time on player and remove peaceful factions once a new fair system has been created.....
I have been suggesting a system that would be fair for over a year:
