Hm I see, though I donīt think it will be that way tbh, we donīt have specifics yet though one of the lead devs from daoc is in the team...

so I very much think it will be very similar to daocs rvr system:

-One giant instanced zone with keeps and towers on it that can be conquered and claimed
-the zone is instanced but persistent

Or if you donīt know daoc think of it as similar to the guildwars 2 system though with larger maps.

The warbands that they talk about I think are just virtual servers to control the maximum population being able to join the same instance.
