One of the issues causing frustration for players is the lack of ability for Funcom to have Game Managers on their hosted servers to address player related issues due to staffing limitations, etc.
Funcom already has the Chosen of Asura, a way of recognizing players that meaningfully contribute to the community.
I was thinking they could expand on this by authorizing player agents to act as their proxies to address player allegations or other player related issues.
They could advertise this at the main menu, so players from all servers are made aware of this (not just those that use Funcom forums.)
I propose some sort of application process, then a probationary period to ensure people don’t abuse the privilege.
This group of individuals would be authorized by Funcom Staff to investigate player allegations and report back to Funcom. I don’t see these characters as having full Admin privileges, but having the ability to deal with things like grief building, etc.
This is a rough draft of an idea; comments, criticisms, suggestions are welcome.
