I am completely oblivious as to the JP and TW verisons of the game, so you'll have to forgive me there. To those that do enjoy PvP I reckon it's a minor setback to not get anything useful out of it. For me...it might be a good thing...somehow. Stealing the points as opposed to gaining them is a fair enough way to go about it, it's like an added bonus to killing a player...IF they have points that is.
You have to kill faction NPCs to get the points in the first place. There's no PvP reward there unless you kill someone who was doing their quests and happened to get points out of it, lol.
I've never bought anything with points from those specific faction areas. In fact, I'm too high leveled to even gain points there now. There's literally nothing useful there, and you need tons of points to buy anything anyway.
