Option #2 for the realm-point-handling seems to come second in the Discord vote: 'No carry over whatsoever but RP becomes Account-Realm shared, just like crafting skills.'
I suggest a modification of this option: put only a partial amount (e.g., 30% of non-task RP) of RP earned into the account-realm-wide pool
Motivation for this suggestion: The original option #2 of account-realm shared RP would help with keeping the motivation to keep playing throughout one season. But I also see big downsides to it:
It would increase the entry-barrier of starting the server mid season enormously -- You would start at low RR while literally every other character that started earlier is much higher in RR than you.
It would only accelerate the gap between more casual players and more sweaty players. With the non-shared RR casual players can decide to focus only on one char to get higher RR while playing new chars is like a natural reset for the non-casual players. And I would guess that the feeling of starting on a level playing field is one appeal of fresh server starts -- this would be gone rather quickly.
It would further increase the gap between more experienced+organized players and less experienced/casual players; E.g., experienced and organized players would have it more easy to switch on a better counter-setup while w/o account-realm shared RR they would have the malus of being lowRR on this counter setup. *(WARNING -- highly subjective opinion and wording following!) It would curl my toenails to see random stealth players farm RR on a BG char, then switch to their stealth toon and still make balance-suggestions like 'i invested 5 month of the season to pl my stealth toon RR and still am not able to oneshot every other class in the game, plz fix!!1111'
the suggested modification of taking only a partial amount of RP earned into the account-realm wide pool would somehow weaken the downsides I mentioned above
another personal point: -A big positive point for a non-seasonal server for me was the possibility to slowly advance multiple characters in all three realms; DAoC is an old game and for me one selling point of the game is the community -- all the nice people I met over all the years playing the game but who are scattered among the three realms. At the end of phoenix 1.0 I had a few characters at a comfortable RR in all realms and so I was able to join friends in all realms. However, with seasons possibly lasting only 6 months and even with account-shared, but realm locked RP I would not be able to have characters in all realms which would take away a lot of fun and motivation to play the game.
