Ahh. Good idea that one. Where did you get it from?

I like the idea of more bots, and giving them a wider variety of routes. I know it's probably random or something, but this round there seems to be only a few route choices.

i like the WW and WK idea too

Everyone is complaining about how the casual alliances are gonna get raped by FTW allys with half the alliance size. Now can you please explain to me how they are supposed to rape the sh#t out of FTF allys with only 10 players???

You people saying that dont realise that it will become dam hard for FTW allys to win...Hence making it more pleasurable and easier for FTF players. and to add to this resistances will be a LOT easier to pull off! packing the round with more excitement.

Also people that hate rushing units are p#ssies

Targetting ALL increases the sweeping capability by a negligible amount because they are so poor in HD/AD as well as the fact that most people use hippies or w/e ALL flak when required.


Thanks max, i had seen that thread before but i had forgotten about it. It would be a good thing to put in i think but it would probably be hard to code from scratch.

Making alliances smaller I do not agree with. There are so many reasons which I've pointed out in other threads that I can't be bothered doing it again. And I think these days those reasons are even more relevant.

Making the round shorter makes a lot of sense. How often have we sat here 40 days into the round thinking "christ I wish this was over already".

I very much like the idea of titles in ID histories.

hell no to the solos getting anything. the multi abusers have erased any sympathy i have for solos. as for the rest, there isn't a solo in this round that won't arrange a mutual attack for AR triggering, troop trading or acres swaps for AR.

in short, **** solos.

10 man alliances is too damn small. if it was a choice between 20 and 10 - it'd be 20. However, there's not an alliance in existence since the start of the game that couldn't have shed 5 members because they either became inactive or were just a place holder due to having friends bring them in. 15 is the magic number.

if harrier as a route won't be removed, then yes, increase the eta. showing up as eta 2 (sent from the end of previous tick) with as much force as they hit with is not balance. just because some people can't wait more than 2 ticks for their attack doesn't mean that this unit is good for the game.

werewolves, gaz, are balanced. it's the route as a whole that is not and actually has no freaking purpose. 'oh hi, i'm here to kill SA, but because vamps and SA fire at the same time, i can't actually attack them.' remove the route. the route is weaksauce, especially with the insurance bug vampires have. remove mummies if the route isn't being removed.

crazed droids. whoever recommended crazed droids to be changed to what they are now, should be shot. they cost more than shields. live less than shields. barely kill more than shields. they used to cost the same as a PA and at least kill flak more effectively than motons and was really good at killing mass tractors. (not that anyone does tractors anymore since everyone is noob and goes cg or harrier)

discworld did fine defending against cg. only a couple times did cg get through. cg's are fine where they are.

Remove 8hr sleep mode.
bots gang up on top alliance from time to time.
make all lets at least eta4
get some mods to enforce the most basic of rules even if their only power is to put people into sleep mode.
Bounty for alliance defends.
