This topic came up a bunch of times during the past month (on discord) so I decided to open a thread about it. I'll be talking about the medic/BH level penalty for leaving your village.
So, why is this a thing?
First of all, it doesn't make sense. It's not like you forget years of experience by moving to somewhere else.
I get it, we want to avoid people switching villages like Faithy changes her partners, but I think the other penalties do a good enough job (stat gain occupation nulled, respect cut in half and then some more...)
And the ones taking the biggest hit are active medics. This is what bothers me the most to be honest because you only punish people who actually bother with this stuff - while people who ignore occupations lose nothing.
There is also the fact that medic levels require resources (pools) while BH is just another tool for raiding.
The way BH works right now, levels don't even matter most of the time. You can either track them (they have low bounty) or you can't (somebody raised their bounty to 20k or so). Of course there are cases when someone actually got their bounty so high from killing that a low level BH can't track them anymore while a high level BH can - but most of the time it really comes down to raising or not raising your bounty with an alt.
What I wanted to say with this is even among the 2 occupations, the one that requires actual pools to be spent takes the biggest hit.
I feel this whole setup is just unfair, for the reasons I've mentioned above.
So what do you guys think?
