What's funny is if you go to any MMO forum where they only have 2 factions. Everything the OP listed as a Con is actually considered a Pro. The ability of the 2 factions to gang up on an stop the progress of 1 is actually a good thing. It halts the Zerg which if left unchecked can kill a PvP MMO dead. It's no fun to have the other side doing so good they dominated the world an you have no chance to push them back. With another side out there to help it can be done though.


As for Eve style factions i'm going to vote no on that. That would only make the game more stupid an chaotic. Good luck holding anything when most of your Outfit has to log off. In fact good luck playing the game at ALL when most of your Outfit has logged off. Since what your describing is basically Outfit vs all other Outfits.


Personally I think Planetside was the best attempt at MMOFPS an got many things right. The 3 factions being one of them.
