Should some form of renown-based stronghold upkeep be introduced?

Renown is currently of marginal value to established factions but absolutely essential to new ones. Should it be instead equally treasured by both?

Presuming that the answer is yes, what mechanisms would be needed? I think some form of upkeep for stronghold upgrades (pay more for higher upgrades) would help in restoring and rebalancing its value, but making it fun and meaningful may be a challenge.

I like renown as it encourages more PvP, but it seems that it is a fairly weak motivator. What other in-game incentives could there potentially be to raid once we hit the late game?

Um... smaller and newer factions require it more, so you want them to have Renown be harder to hold on to?

Renown is used in permanent faction upgrades, so decay would encourage spending it as fast as possible.

Smaller and newer factions have less upgrades so would require less upkeep, possibly only a trivial amount (if following the scaling of upgrade purchase price). E.g. a 10-size safe would be 1 renown per 14 days, but a 100-size safe would be 1 per 7, and a 1000-size would be 1 per day.

Decay would be one option, but upkeep would still encourage stockpiling without prompting spending. Though I don't see what the point of stockpiling is, myself.

Agreed, I spent the Police Forces renown pretty regularly, however this idea would probably mean we were penalised for having built up a big safe over many breaths.
