Savanja: PvP token drops have caused some grief in the past and have been one feature that has been grossly exploited. Was this exploitation part of why tokens have been made only available through questing?
Bruce Ferguson: Writs largely came about based on player feedback and to give some emphasis to group PvP In the past tokens were largely distributed through the lottery system, but since the drop rate was high, players then felt it was easier to solo than group. Writs still allow the solo player to gain tokens easily but the group can now get the same amount by finishing the quest together. As for exploitation, it was always a small few that did this and wasn’t a major factor in our decision to move to the writ system.
