Pk Unclanning

Okay, I know this might be to some a stupid question to ask...but why can't we just unclan when we reach 50th level at will?

Tempus Kittredge, the knight of legend that really want to unclan.

Well, some people would probably clan, run around making a nuisance of themselves, and then unclan before anybody could do something about it :P

Under the current system somebody can still throw their weight around and act like a jerk when they reach the xp to unclan, feeling invulnerable, but at least it limits how often they can do it. Also, it would provide more opportunities for cross-play if people can just clan each character, level to 50 and then discard it- not that you would do either of the above of course, but I'm sure there are some who would.

I do think an alternative would be to have some requirement based on the number of hours you have played a character, rather than just on xp. Or perhaps two options, one based on xp, the other on hours played- but I don't know how feasible that is.

Heh, some people would be pkenabled for a day. From what I understood, retirement from pkill by xp gain was never something that was supposed to be easily obtainable.

Yeah, unclanning is supposed to be something reasonably difficult to accomplish when you do nothing but pk and stuff.
