This system is vaguely reminiscent of Aetolia's old landmarks, which I dearly miss. I am excite!
Are you going to be able to be a rogue? If so, and you capture a cosmpiercer, will you get significant direct payments? Finally, if players from different factions work together to capture a cosmpiercer, which faction does it go to?
As long as you can get two people, yep.
The main reason landmarking got removed in Achaea wasn't because of positive feedback loops though. It was because when it was initially 24/7, people got tired of the constant pressure given how important and consequential it was to each side. Then when we limited the time during which you can affect the landmarks, people got burned out on that too. Some people were just not logging in during that time because they didn't want to deal with their city and/or guild harassing them to focus hardcore on landmarking. We'll see how this system goes. One thing I can guarantee is that it will need changes at some point. What type? Who knows. We'll see when you guys get your hands on it.
Perhaps landmarks could have been relegated to being manually initiated by the game producer on rare occasions, with less important effects.
