Yea I agree, I dont like the whole teleporting thing, I think it's useless. But official marriages would be awesome. The people that are married can have bonuses like extra xp while in a fs and whatnot. But there will be a shortage of females in the game. Unless some males will be a female character in game. But thats kind of weird professing your love to a male whos controlling a female.

I feel that this would be abused quite a bit. Lets say abusers of different-sex characters arent dealt with. Whats to stop 2 highbies from getting married and then while one remains at Eastern Gate, the other dies (having Hope obelisk bound) sells the items, restocks on torches and the stuff and just teleports back to the spouse. And yes i know that some people don't know what im talking about cause of the WiA examples. Hope was the main (and only) settlement and Eastern Gate was the highbie training spot at the time at about a 5-10min walk/horse ride there.

We had wedding rings in Akarra near the end there... They didn't do anything except make you spend money on a worthless item... I never saw a use for them outside of just having one for shits and giggles.Besides, as mentioned before the male/female ratio is highly unbalanced so odds are, the girl you're flirting with is only a girl in character. Don't get me wrong, there are real girls that play, but there just aren't enough to go around for the need to even consider setting up something like this.

Right now we have what? A little more then 200 people signed up for the forums... Taking into consideration that some people only signed up to reserve their name and some people double or triple accounted and maybe even more... There really isn't that many of us here. Best thing to do is not worry about a silly little technicality like that until there's a thousand or more people playing at any given time... When that happens, the odds are the game would be extremely popular, and the ratio would still be very unbalanced, but it would be a hell of a lot closer then what it is now.

Well, 1,000 people on at a time is gunna be quite a while. Then there is a high chance of tons of noobs on all at the same time and begging thier freakin heads off. I hope the community never gets that way. About marriages though, I'm sort of neutral. I don't really care what happens, but I do think that married people should get some kind of fs bonus as already stated. It's also very immoral for someone to pose as a girl when they are actually a guy just for a small fs bonus...sickos...

I guess I'll join those who think this will be used for powergaming. There are just tons of strategic applications to this. Then again, marriages of convenience happen IRL too...

Well yah, it still costs money to recharge them... so it's just a different kind of teleportation with a fee.

Having offical marriage with some kinda reward is a good idea. This idea of rings used for teleportation would be abused to much though.

Well I've been in a lot of communities for other games where people wanted marriage. Most developers from a designers perspective stated having 'official' marriages didn't serve any benefitial purpose for the whole community. Would add another thing where friends would make a male/female character and then marry each other and fight with each other just to get the fs bonus.

If there are official marriages I would really like to see no pros and cons but a huge consumption of money for the wedding.

My 2 cents.
