Funny things is, it takes more time to pick item on the ground than stealing a cart.

I’ve always LOLed whenever I see this complaint in chat. There are plenty of things you can do while escorting, but if you feel your time is too valuable then that’s on you. Most players who refuse to escort never really stop to think about the actual loss of resources by not escorting, which is easily several thousand basic resources and up to hundreds of rare gems daily. Also as someone else mentioned the majority of wagon thieves are from smaller kingdoms who NEED those resources from the guy who just spent 3 minutes sending 20 wagons back to his city.

Hardly anyone robs my cart. Though we still have to escort our carts because vultures just lie in wait. Yes, there are plenty of things you can do while escorting, like stare at your screen for 15 minutes on a single cart just to expect a PvP notice that may or may not come. That is really fun and entertaining. I also LOLed.

"Plenty of things to do" there is only one thing to do and that is to stare at your screen and wait for someone to come and rob your wagon and take out a couple of your troops and heroes. Then repeat again untill you have spent a couple hours each day just staring at your screen... waiting.... so fun and interactive gameplay i must say.

Atleast if someone stole it and there was a system in which you can take back the stolen resources we can strategically choose targets to rob and not to rob instead of just... staring at the screen... waiting...

Another way this can be balanced is to limit the number of carts you can see. So you would only be able to rob players +/- 10% of your power. So if you have 150k power you can only rob players with 135-165k power.

Another way to fix this would be to be able to put some troops on your carts to "defend it".

Another way to fix this would be to greatly increase the movement speed of the wagons when you escort, so you do not have to waste a couple hours of your life just waiting for someone to attack.

Another way to fix this would be to be able to get some kind of bounty system in the works. So the more carts you rob the higher a bounty gets placed on you and players can collect this bounty by attacking them if they attack them.

Another way to fix this would be to simply give the players a chance to take back the robbed resources and honor.

Another way to fix this would be to limit the amount of carts you can rob daily while in Capital (this actually lets players have some interactive gameplay instead of someone staying in capital and just running around robbing everyone).

Another way to fix this is also to add a white flag or another kind of flag even if they just retreat that will not allow robbing in an hour.

Another way to maybe fix this would be to extend the current "safe zone" you get from escorting your carts. Right now some carts just disappear when you have escorted them for a while. So the idea is if the rest of the route of your cart is in your own kingdom territory the cart would disappear like that. Or another way like this, if your cart is in your own kingdom territory players in the city that has the territory have an option to auto use their garrisons to defend allies carts. This also kind of makes it more of a teamplayer game.

There is hundreds of ways this can be done.

I tried to make an account on a server where my kingdom had 0 cities and 2 other kingdoms basicly had all the cities. As a lvl 10 castle in the capital i got ~20k of each basic resource and ~350 of each rare resources. By just running around and robbing people for 1 hour. That is ALOT higher than what anyone at that castle level can even get by just doing their daily quests. With the current system a single player can ruin the fun of a whole server. Something needs to happen Lilith. Listen to our prayers...

Just increase the cart speed by a factor of 4, I don't think anything else is needed.
I don't think there is any downside to it...
Robbers will keep on robbing and if the cart is escorted it's just going to finish faster... which is a major issue actually, there is no need for such a tedious aspect of the game to be so stretched out.

Allowing the escort of multiple carts would be another option. Higher risk, higher reward. An attacker that loses a single gold troop stands to lose more rare resources than the cart itself carries, so most I see just move on to easier targets. But if there were 10 carts being escorted at once then it might be worth the battle.
