An interesting idea surfaced on the official forums today regarding Bounty Boards. Poster Guide created this argument for people to mull over:
This is a suggestion that would be fun if possible to implement. I would like to see a system of bounty boards put into the game were those with a high amount of infamy could be listed and hunted. Boards could give info about the locations of these players. Of course rewards would be needed for this to be a little more enticing to players i do not know what those should be.
As with the rewards for hunting those with high infamy those being hunted would need a reason to not be the hunter. So for every kill they get when fighting the bounty hunters give them some sort of reward. Those being hunted should not be able to stay in safe zones for to long.
What do you think about this idea? Creating a way to discourage outlaws and also putting more depth behind the system. It gives anti-PK type players a goal or targets to go after while giving those who love being Outlaws a way to actually measure their public image: the bigger the bounty the better!
Personally, I think this would be a fantastic idea, and give players another type of “end-game” content to do on, at the very least, PVP servers. What do you think? Are there ways this could be abused? The only hiccup in this type of system would be that it would be difficult to implement on PVE servers unless you create pvp-specific areas.
