I've been playing Taern since the EU server was opened a couple of weeks ago and am really enjoying the game. I like the "nostalgic" feel to it but most of all I like the challenge that it provides. After being "spoon-fed" by the majority of MMO's throughout the years Taern really is something different. Take a look.

The deterrence is you and your friends and the others who finally decide to step-up and do something. Remember, this game is going to be about your personal skill and not fully reliant upon the "Holy Handgrenade of Antiok" or something that a guild has farmed endlessly so as to provide a significant advantage.
People who go "red" are taking as much a chance at losing their gear as those who are being ambushed. Think of this.. do you think it was good for your health, or a wise decision, to roam the countryside with your wares that you wanted to sell the following day in a large city? Or, was it equally as good for you to just, haphazardly, ambush a merchant caravan that is protected by guildies and perhaps a merc or ten?
There's alot more here to come so you might want to keep an open mind. I too hate the zerg aspect of some games and the destruction that it creates to some subscribers "gameplay." But I feel quite confident that Henrik, Mats and the rest of the dev team have this in their minds continuously.
