Storm Legion was released, November 13, 2012. Three months later the first complaints about the +1 promotion system were made and have continued ever since. Marnth recently made a post on the Rift forums regarding touring which turned into complaints on the +1 system. The exact complaints vary but the sentiment behind them boils down to not receiving sufficient +1s for their own dimension. It’s then followed by suggestions to change the system, usually to favour the complainer’s own dimensions.
Does that sound unnecessarily harsh? It’s not meant to be. I get it. It points to a very real need we have, as human beings, for human recognition and positive regard. I know that need, I feel it myself. I’m just not sure that changes to the +1 system will improve the way dimensions meet that very human need.
