    Greetings Cosmonauts!
    I gotta admit I'm a little dumbfounded. I understand wanting to have things feel nostalgic for Legacy but I gave you an option to avoid one of the major frustrations that everyone has felt over the years:

    Faction Power and Player Power

    Right now when a server resets you guys get upset because you want us to "increase slots" not just for players but also because you "can't get your alts on."

    Recognizing this, we gave you an option to vote on that would alleviate some of this....
    https://forum.cosmicpvp.com/threads...vailable-to-faction-members-on-legacy.302626/

    I mean, picture it.... you have 700 people and their alts all trying to get on one server to get enough power to claim?

    In the current setup and power caps to have a substantial base you would need on average 4 alt factions.

    Mine on Lava looked liked this:

    If you vote to double the power caps you would need only 2 factions to accomplish the same especially without faction points.

    So I'm a bit confused.... why would you want to make it so challenging to be able to acquire the power that you will need for day one claiming?

    40 players makes it so you need less alts why would people vote otherwise?

    No need for so many alts/alt factions.

    Ok imagine this..

    If life gave you 2 options..

    Easy < > Hard.. Which would majority of people chose.

    **Or maybe people think that player count will be too high, and make it impossible to log alts to gen / afk**

    After re-reading it again. I think choosing the 1000 max power option would be more reasonable and more viable for a base. With the current status of spirit, we have to buy a rank for all of our alts and for a whole new planet such as legacy, that won't be as easy.

    Uh
    The thing is
    It's only at SOTW when people care about logging in alts for power
    After SOTW it's solely for afking purposes
    That's when people are complaining about needing more player slots
    So if that answers your question or whatever....

    Tell that to spirit planet or lava planet (up to 2/3 of the way through the map) struggling to ensure they are able to maintain their power and relog alts.

    The easier solution would be higher power per player with higher max faction power.

    Power actually used to be capped at 10, which people will remember was a complete nightmare.

    40, to me, just makes sense. Less alts, easier to manage.

    On spirit everyone has to afk with top rank accounts otherwise during prime time your spawners wont be afked. I would hope this doesnt happen on legacy. 40 power would help everyone!
