Stop/limit Xp Battles!!!!

XP battles on a constant basis will do nothing but kill w10 faster. This was the case in w2 and this will be the case in any world that follows the same practices. XP battles maybe 1-2 times a week are acceptable, but for these newer worlds it is unhealthy. Does anyone else agree with these statements?

So more battles is killing the world? Seems counter intuitive. Better exp battles then none at all.

I am saying this. If there are ONLY xp battles and no regular battles then it'll take the fun out of the world....xp battles help you lvl faster but there's no competitiveness....:(

I disagree XP battles are great love them expecially when i get xp hero :D not many competitive battles but people still get something out of it + Lack of xp battles makes leveling slower and 700+ xp with no xp battles for me is a hell of a long time :P

This is a symptom, not a cause. Cure the disease, fix your problem. Bandaging up a symptom because you don't like it rarely alleviates the problem. it just makes people upset when it hurts them, or comes back again later in another form. To truly stop the symptoms from occurring you have to cure the disease that causes the carcass to rot. There is a reason Hegel said, "God is dead."

People don't want to do regular battles in older worlds because there is no point.
1. There is no point to winning/losing with battle healing
2. It costs lots of gold to hire tons of mercs for the win, so they can't battle every day.
a. You could cut down on mercs by making it non profitable for bad players to merc by cutting battle healing
b. You could cut down on merc orders when merc orders get attacked and actually lose something if not for battle healing.
3. People jump in randomly for exp and don't use any strategy other than to join the side with most exp on the other side because of battle healing.

I think you get the point.
