I’m pretty sure this scenario: “a complete faction is looking for a better/ different competition”
is not such an unrealistic scenario. E.g. the faction i’m in is very active and we could achieve a good rank in our liga. But we see, that compared to other factions with comparable strength and effort achieved higher ranking because of a much more active server. As liga ranking is not just a ego boost like the former raid ranking, but leeds to better rewards etc. we have to think about moving to a more active server, even if this means lower ranking in the events itself.
There are possibly much more factions that want to switch server because of different reasons, that are lets say top 20 of the server, where a reset of liga ranking would mean a significant loss of liga rewards.
Of course some of all moving factions also switch servers, want to jump up in the server ranking, but only a minority wants to do these significant increases in ranking, that you are implying.
Fact is, if the assumption in this post is true all factions, that want to move have to trade between achieving their goal and loosing potentially the achieved liga rank and reward income or keep liga rank and be stuck on the actual server.
@JB.Scopely as the liga feature is very new. Can you give some clarification. If a new faction is created (either on the same or a different server) by players that are already in a higher liga ranking. How is the rank of the new faction set and how long will it take to achieve the former status.
