The better point meep is that there has been no good reason as to why it should be returned back to 50%.There a lot of bonuses to colony zone including, but not limited to, higher xp, non-agroing mobs, and many fast respawning bosses. The risk to these bonuses is that you may be killed, lose half your gold, and lose 50np. The 80% town feature is meant to keep all of you accountable to that risk. We, the staff, have felt that players have forgotten those risks due to the 50% town limit, so we increased it to 80% to make those risks once again a part of the game.
Also to all you bickering like 3rd graders, stop. First and last warning to stay on topic before I just start tossing out temp bans.
