good point kiera, +rep.
And if they attack the historical and get flagged for conquest mode, how is that fair? A L16 can send waves of 250k by default. The owner of that L16 can capture any normal player city they want. So by allowing historical owners to retaliate and capture every city that scouts or hits them with 1 worker, that would create a huge problem.
And remember, if YOU own a historical and draft from others, that is like being a Suzerain, right? And colonized players can indeed uprise on their suzerains without getting flagged for conquer mode. So why not allow colonized players to attack a HC owner?
attack button... interesting.
colonisation.... fun but there is no risk justifies the reward as there is no decent return.
plundering players for reasources..... that would be interesting, and it would enable even noobs who have been playing for 2 weeks get a good feel for the game, and generate more exp for heroes if your surrounded by hostiles. also means more risk of losing heroes, but its something that will make people play harder.
capping a players normal city.... iffy, if i wanted to lose cities id go play age one for a few weeks.
Personally I'm all for the attack button. Colonizing is boring. With attack button worst thing that can happen is someone gets attacked and losses all their cities and quits. Alotta players i colonized quit after i colonized em, because they thought hmmm this guy on another level to us so lets quit an start afresh on a new server, but not before they set production to 0 and dismiss all their troops leaving me with getting nothing from colonizing. Not to mention the amount of colony attacks i've seen happen is absurd. People get massive armies wiped out. Not really much point in owning colonies IMO even tho it was kinda fun at first when it was new and untested. But after playing with it a while it kinda irritating risking losing troops + resources for really no reward. Unless it some with gates closed and even then if they active they move troops to another city soon as they get on.
Hey, I won't argue with you, good points. But it only highlights all the more reason to allow players like yourself to battle other players who wish to play conquer mode. People who want to punch it out with others should battle with players who want to punch. Players that are new to Age II and learning, etc... it may take them months before they feel comfortable stepping into the ring. But players should not be forced to step into the ring. It should be optional. Let the players "spar" and "grapple" first before they get put into the arena. Let them get strong and develop some skills. And that is what colonize mode does. It prepares players who are new like myself (only been playing this game since March) to get familiar with things.
This forum is designed to gather feedback from our players on various game issues...... and ignore it.
This is my honest opinion and is not meant as an insult or a flame.
In view of the current uproar can you genuinely say that our views, opinions and feedback are taken onboard?
Why do you even ask for feedback on "proposed" changes when they're going to be implemented no matter what the player-base thinks?
Historical Cities :4 2 0 0
Also rather than have different servers why not give n00b players a longer beginners protection period. Make it two weeks until they can start colonizing or be colonized. Make it one month until they can start attacking or be attacked. Evony isnt rocket science so i dont see the need treat players as babies.
