    Question on switching nations

    Was wondering what happens to your CP points when you do. I never switched before and now I kinda want to try other story lines but I have a significant amount of CP. So if anyone knows, would be great. Thank you

    You have 0 CP for the new nation. When you switch back to your old nation, you have all your old CP back.

    When you switch back to your old nation, do you get all of your OP warps back, too?

    Unfortunately you do not get your old OPs back that you had originally from your prior nation, once you switch nations, you loose all OPs, only CP is kept and you would have access to them (CP) when you go back. Its gay, SE sucks for it, but I guess the devs thought it smart for people to have to redo OPs each and every fucking time you switch nations "new" or "old" (old as in previous).

    You used to lose all your CP; the change that let you keep your CP when you switch back was made about the same time that OP warps were implemented.

    I don't think it's a case of SE saying "thou shalt lose thine OP warps", but rather the person/people doing the CP retention didn't co-ordinate with the person/people doing OP warps, and nobody has looked into it since.

    I seem to recall someone asking about this at the last meeting and they said that if enough people send requests to their recycle bin via POL they'll change it so if you switch back nations the outposts you'd previously earned remained.

    I do really wish they would change the OP thing, I will never switch nations because of losing those, it would kill me.

    And I absolutely love how everyone ignored Maxx.

    Oh, and thats the exact reason I'll never change nations. Espcially because Bastok has taken over Ronfaure and Sarubaruta, and use those outposts all the time. I don't see people getting motivated to take those outposts again any time soon.

    It's kinda stupid for SE to make it like that...especially when they want everyone to experience all FFXI has to offer before they get bored with stuff. Kinda hard to experience all it has to offer when you get penalized for it.
