@Vraelen, "These analogies make the same mistake....." , "Level is more like age, except you can control how fast you level/age."
I'll have to disagree with u on the analogy here, especially as I see that ur lvl 190+? I wont say so just yet, because Im not from Arawn, but just like I said I believe in my first post on this topic, like u expect me as a higher lvl from a dominant clan that has existed for most of the time the game exists to try and be in ur shoes, I expect u to do the same (and Im aware BadaBing exists for a while, but I believe its not the same BadaBing).
Having fun and having an advantage are two totally different things, u can have fun at lvl 180, that doesnt mean ur supposed to get an advantage for 'pausing' ur 'age' just because u wanna have fun. Dont we all wanna have fun? Since when lvl 180 boss is limited to lvl 180? By that same logic, if ur lvl 181, dont go to snorri, dont go to money bosses, dont farm on hawkhursts, dont kill aggy and so on.
I wont turn it into analogies showdown, but I'll disagree with the 'level = age' and 'having fun = having an advantage', in a game level decides the most for u as a player (maybe class decides more), and as a player u shouldnt pass on contact that u have passed it's lvl just because its forced on u, if it would have been that way, none of us would go past lvl 180.
Let me take an example of a clanless person, that clanless person has lvled to 180 and got familiar with the lvl 180's clan, he didnt like the ppl there and continued to lvl, he reached lvl 205 and decided he wanna join some clan, perhaps the dominant one will accept him. The dominant clan voted and accepted him in, after a while he was supposed to get his dl mainhand, but alas, he couldnt, he passed lvl 180 and could no longer kill snorri, he shall forever be stuck without dl mainhand which will never let him progress to edl that is available only on higher LEVEL (205 for just full armour) because hes no longer 180 and didnt want to join a clan of ppl that stay at lvl 180, perhaps he didnt get along with them perhaps he wanted to lvl with his clannies. What a sad situation this lvl 205 is stuck at, to never enjoy a dl mainhand, he camped and camped and camped, he couldnt win the lock and so he tried to improve himself with different gear, he camped and continued to call his 200+ strong clannies to help but they just couldnt get the lock often enough to just kill snorri and enjoy the aspect of the game that these 180's enjoy too...
Well, this was a rather long and slightly exaggerated example, but I believe it passes my point. Ppl who want to ENJOY dl as much as u, the low lvl, wanna enjoy it, shouldnt be limited on lvling and clan's average lvl, just because there are ppl abusing the flawed system, he wanna enjoy just like u, why wont u let him?
EDIT: just for the record, the example doesnt resemble myself, Im in my clan since Im lvl 122 and before Ive been in the rival clan, I dont have dl sword or shield as I passed them down so others could get it because there isnt enough to gear us all + ppl who join, and my warrior is a main, not an alt.
Sorry, was out for a bit. That situation above kinda seems like a "too bad, so sad" for one person out of a hundred who could have stayed at 180 to help out his new clanmates who are in a similar situation or stayed at 180 to help him/herself. I could also make a sob story for say a level 180 who doesn't want to join the one dominant clan. The 180 camps and camps, but these super high 220s keep coming back and locking because all that matters is damage. Even if the 180 and his/her friends of 180s start early, a 220 can chance upon it and call his/her group of 220 friends to do more damage. *Quick note, I am using 180/220 because this seems to generally be a 180 vs 220 argument...*
I just want to point out again, there should not be a reason for the higher levels to come back. Rather than complain about the fence that separates the generations of levels, you should focus on the reason why people want to go over the fence...
