Any other options to get some idea of how the military and political struggles in the Outlands actually work for Albion Online Gold players that will not be in a place to participate for a number of months?

While my character can contribute to a large scale PVP or Boss fight, there is no way I can survive encounters in the Outlands.

Perhaps they could create an “Invite as Ghost” mechanic where a friendly could allow you to essentially see through their screen view port. If the invisible character could select and characters and follow the combat transcript of the “host” player. Anything to get a dynamic understanding of these areas and an idea of why you would even want to build up a character to participate. Seems like the worst this suggestion could do is (perhaps) increase the local latency.

As you stated in the end of your Albion Online Silver, there is indeed useful intel that ghost players could obtain. To be honest, albion is based on intel almost entirely, allowing ghost characters to roam around would be equivalent of allowing you to see the cards your opponent has in poker.

Sorry, but as noble as your intentions may be this would very quickly turn into abusefest that would break the whole PvP aspect of the game. I wouldn’t be beyond public information like heatmaps as in what regions are the most dangerous etc, but I am against any form of public tools that could be used to gather information real time especially at an individual level.
