This forum post is to discuss a concerning problem that Lusternia is currently experiencing. This is not meant to blame. It is to point out facts, some opinions, and identify solutions.
Fact 1: Players are retiring from one side at an increased rate than the other.
Fact 2: Novices are selecting one side more than the other .
Fact 3: Combat is rarely even, and it is often one-sided in terms of numbers.
Opinion 1: This isn't one or a few players fault on either side.
Opinion 2: People do not want to feel hopeless.
Opinion 3: This problem is killing and will end Lusternia.
Solution 1: Dissolve all alliances.
Solution 2: Create mechanics that even sides in a numbers regard.
Solution 3: Adjust balance somehow to where numbers don't stack well. (I don't have a plan.)
Again, please don't specify org or players in this thread.
