    If your Node is at war with a Node your guild mates live in, does that stop you from being able to party with your guild mates, raid, and defend your castle if the Defensive Siege happens during the same period as the Node War is happening?

    Are the combat pets all DPS oriented or are there Tank, DPS, Healing and Support variants? Can I be a healer that has a combat pet that aids me in my healing or provides mana regen?

    What does intrepid think about a party duel system alongside the regular 1v1's?

    Party leaders of the same group size could request eachother to start a duel.
    This would be a great feature for inhouse tournaments within guilds or to practice for arena gameplay.

    Will there be some different indicators of selected targets that players can choose other than the circle beneath them which, imo, looks unnatural and unbefitting for a game with realistic graphics? Perhaps some sort of highlight like in ESO or some other subtle indicator that the target is selected.

    While I'm sure technology has come a long way, and it wont be an issue, but I'd rather ask for a definite answer.
    Is the combat dependent on latency/ping or does it work on other factors?
    As an Australian who will be playing with Americans on the NA servers, how I enjoy the game and what classes/skills I chose, can be influenced by how I would perform in combat with a high latency/ping.

    Question on Seaside Nodes & harbors in regards to Node siege content/combat.

    Will naval combat be included in the siege aspect of Seaside nodes w/harbors in both defensive and offensive capabilities? If this is the case would a offensive commander have the ability to zerg a ship based attack, vice just having a ground component and would the defending commander have "warning" or clues to that ship zerg attack?

    Thank you to everyone that watched me formulate this question on the Critical Zen Network via twitch!

    Several other games that have group PvP have attempted to use culling to improve performance. However, culling had negative effects on the PvP (fighting people you could not see right away).

    How will the culling in AoC work and how will you ensure it won't negatively effect large group PvP interactions?

    Hello Intrepid,

    Straight to the point: Can tab-targeting abilites be augmented to become action-combat abilities and vice versa ?

    Thanks for your time,

    Corrupted players lose a large amount of corruption on death with a chance to drop items depending on corruption level. What would prevent someone from having their friends or guild members kill them to reduce their corruption and giving them their gear/items back after death?

    Will there be a guild audit log in game that is exportable or could this be available through your website or something?

    Guild logs telling who has left, joined, and who is using their rights are a boon and so seldom available outside the game. An export to excel button, or the ability to copy/paste a log would actually be huge. Even better if there was a ui with a checkbox "rights use", "vault access", "combat entries", "player status changes", for instance.

    Example Log:
    player-a promoted player-b to rank-c
    player-a kicked player-b for "reason"
    player-a left the guild no reason given
    player-a took x of item-y out of vault-b
    player-a was killed by player-b in cold blood (would be cool, but overkill perhaps)
    player-a killed player-b in defense (would be cool, but overkill perhaps)

    This enables:
    • A way to easily manage out of game permissions for, say discord.
    • Track participation.
    • Identify theft or abuse.
    • Reward valuable members that may go unnoticed.
    • Lots of other useful metrics that I can't even think of right now.

    These are things that gm's constantly deal with in some games and so rarely does any thought go to such an important aspect of running a guild. Usually games just dump "leaving" notices in chat and call it a day. I've seen very few games with actual audit logs for guilds.

    What will challenging raids look like - are they going to be challenging because of other raid groups or small parties could ambush you while doing it and will there be player counting mechanics that kick in when more than 40 people are killing the boss?
