I like being a Rogue. I don’t wanna be a full Villain or a full Hero. The game shouldn’t disadvantage people in the endgame for not picking a side when the alignment powers you get for being Hero/Villain are already massively better than the Rogue/Vig powers.
Incentivizing everyone to choose between Hero and Villain to get enhancements also massively disadvantages Redsiders when it comes to doing group content on low-pop servers like ours, because if you have to choose one or the other, you better choose Hero or get ready to have no one to play with. Obviously both sides can collaborate on certain things, but for the rest of the game, it can be hard to even get 8 people on a redside team, especially if they need to be 8 or more at max level (LRSF, Hami raids). If people are squeezed unless they choose one or the other, that necessarily means there’s going to be fewer Vigilantes and Rogues who can hop over.
I know the game likes to treat them as fence-sitting impure alignments, but they can be core ideologies too, so it doesn’t make sense to treat them like intermediate stepping stones when some want to stay there forever. It just makes things worse for everyone.
