Simplify GW points terminology please

Why do we have two type of "points" instead of simply calling the real point system "points" and the ones you use to buy things in the store for "guild credits", "guild coins", "war coins" or something like that?

I've seen people needlessly confused about this many times.

    While it does seem like a rather minor issue to me, I could definitely see the value in that to help reduce confusion for newer players, especially.

    Even experienced players who know the difference mix up RP and VP simply because those abbreviations don't make sense to humans, and it's easy to mistype. Happened just now in my guild's Discord.

    Have also seen people on this forum use the abbreviation "GP" instead of both VP and RP, making matters more confusing.

    Sweet Mother Mary @Paste ... if you are going to continuously call people out on the forum, at least call out the right person. It wasn’t @SPC_TORRES that disagreed with you. Sheesh.

    Me too.

    Why not just use the same term "Influence" they have already coined for Outposts?

    I mean Im not to keen on the term "Influence" but it's essentially the same mechanic so why not use the same term?

    1) Influence

    2) Guild Coins

    It's a very small nuisance honestly, but seems like an easy fix too?
