We on the Staff aide have been having a year long debate on what to do about the glaring issues regarding player activity between blueside and redside. As it stands now, across All Servers, there is a 90/10 split of 90% of players playing blueside and 10% playing redside with the gap actually slightly growing to a 93/7 split.
We have weighed heavily on what kind of solution could be made to cater to players to bring them to redside more often. We have talked to many players inside and outside our community for over a year now on this topic with varied ideas and opinions.
Our solution we saw was to put the Archetype classes back to there original places. What this means to put all original Blueside ATs back as blueside starting only and redside ATs as redside starting only with a massive reduction to Tips cooldown effectively allowing people to do tips and switch sides within a 6-8 hour span starting at level 20.
While we are not commited to this idea we have decided to talk to the entire coh community on this topic to gain a general idea of what the consensus of the players would think.
Mind you, this would mean that ATs like MMs would have to start back on redside rather then blueside and viceversa for blueside ATs like Blasters.
Leave a comment below and tell us your thoughts. We plan to have a Discord voice chat debate on this for our monthly meeting of June as well for others interested in the discussion.
I'm a redside main that goes Rogue. I can live with the less activity than blueside, it's still easy enough to do co-op content or have Vigilantes come over to help. Blue vs red is a false dichotomy.
Redside has benefits blue does not. I think with the changes on this server to Bank missions, the Invader Accolade is easier to get than Task Force Commander. The other stat accolades are probably easier, too. You can also do Mortimer Kal to get a deferred Notice of the Well. Redside is probably the min/maxer choice, but people just prefer Paragon City because it's prettier.

nekkidtruth: I think most also have a habit of creating their own SG's and keeping it to themselves. I don't invite to mine because it hosts all of my alts. However I do allow access for the telepads to those on my team.
