In a forum post, CCP Rattati proposed that the Skirmish game mode “becomes [for] FW only”. Rattati says that he feels Skirmish is more about “taking over a district, for your own in a PC, or for a faction in FW”, and that Domination and Ambush are “thematically ‘smaller affairs'”.
He went on to say that “to make the transition easier, we would add ISK rewards to FW, so players can make LP and ISK at the same time”. Currently, Factional Warfare only allows mercenaries to make Loyalty Points, which are given out based on standings with a specific faction, and Skill Points.
Near the end of the post, Rattati also added that to deal with AFKing, there would be a War Point lockout “for all rewards” during Factional Warfare matches.
After asking for community feedback on the proposed idea, Rattati asked for feedback concerning team deploy and locking Factional Warfare to the faction of the player.
