Locking races, and classes behind RP upsets me.
I'm not sure what you were going for there, but your incentive is basically a setup for something that only encourages half-assism. People simply going through the motions to unlock the full range of options.So your incentive is really just a roadblock, and in my case, a complete turnoff.
Hmm, on Ateraan we (the player run guilds) require roleplay to join guilds (except for the Rogues). But it is interactive and amongst the other guild members so it is enjoyable and sometimes intense. Is that discouraging in your opinion?
