This update (2.08) has just put dueling and alliances on a path to becoming obsolete. It is now possible to go townless and quest and job all day long without fear of being dueled. When it comes time to battle townless now has remote sign in and since you are townless are safe from duelers as well. Battle chats can be used as alliance chats or an "alliance" can create a room and invite others to it for a chat room. Is this something that was planned or a major oversight?
