Wagon Thiefs [SUGGESTION]

Mon Oct 02, 2017 6:10 pm

Alot of my fellow members in my server are getting very tired of having to escort every single cart, the second you dont escort one it is guaranteed to get robbed by someone else, atleast in our server. We would all love a feature like the revenge for when someone attacks your castle. Or something similar, because most people dont have the time to escort every single cart when we log on for a few moments to play and we have to escort each cart for 5 minutes. It would also be partly solveable if you could increase the speed of the carts. Right now it is just annoying to get your carts robbed and not being able to do anything at all.

So maybe add a revenge like feature where you can "steal" back the resources they have stolen with a button within like 1 hour or something and they have to setup an army to protect the resources that they have stolen. Or just the normal revenge button, basicly just give people a chance to retaliate in some manner.

That is one "weakness" of a very large kingdom. You will either have to spend a lot of extra time escorting carts, or just let others take them. It's not like you lose all the cart, just like half of it.

For me, escorting was never been a problem. It's the time it take for it to be deliver. Speed should increase while the player is escorting the cart, because in some situation, escorting a single cart for 10~13 minutes + is really boring.

Yeah it totally ruins the fun.. just sitting and doing nothing for such a long time. Especially now that we have faster mine respawns, no one has the time to just sit and watch your screen for an ambush. People in the same kingdom as me has an average total time for escorting carts per day at ~2 hours.

Maybe another solution would be that you can only rob carts if you are moved out of capital, this way it takes atleast 10 minutes + the time to clear a city, so this way the robbed player have some chance to atleast do something about the thiefs.

I find it a good Idea to increase the speed of carts when you escort them. Similar to your movement speed this could be dependend on the territory you're currently on aswell.

About the general situation with the carts:

I don't want to much to be changed about the way they work. The Escorting/Robbing mechanic is in my opinion very healthy for a F2P/P2W game. It adds one more layer for players with more time/interest for the min/maxing aspect of the game where they can catch up to P2W player.
The cart system shouldn't be changed in a direction where it helps lazy people with less time because that helps P2W player.

Robbing should stay.Its up to every player.Max i d suggest to enhance it with troops .so the robber can see only the amount of troops escorting a cart.Could be even improved by research like troops on the wall.

"Right now it is just annoying to get your carts robbed and not being able to do anything at all."

Actually, you can do something... which would be escorting your cart. You can't really expect the devs to change something just cause you're unwilling to do what everyone else does.

Thing is, this balances things out a bit on servers. Smaller kingdoms obviously have less access to mines and resources, so they can afford to escort. On the other hand, someone in a bigger kingdom will likely be less willing, so people in smaller kingdoms can get some (just some) of the many resources bigger kingdoms have available.

At any rate, the devs just cut the wait time for mines and quests in half lately, so surely you can make do with the "lost" res. If not, i suspect this is more about not wanting others to get it rather than a complaint about not getting enough yourself.

You are right "i can do something" but this is just about logic, no average person can sit and watch their phone for 2 hours straight every single day to watch if someone tries to rob the cart you are so slowly escorting. Most people in mobile games, start up the game, play for FUN and go back to their real lives. The mechanic of the cart system is just pointless time consumption. There is no real fun gameplay escorting a cart.
If you enjoy sitting and looking at your phone for multiple hours a day and maybe once in a while someone with 200k more power than yourself attack you, because well.. they can without any real consequence, well then go ahead. But if you just browse the forums a little bit i think you will find not everyone has as much time as you have mate.

The devs should make this a better experience by either speeding them up, letting you defend it with some troops, adding some sort of "you rob the cart, now you need to go back to your city to redeliver what you stole" mechanic, personal revenge, you cannot rob if you have 0 energy.
