    I'm going to be keeping an eye on this thread. Feedback on the system is certainly welcome, arguments about which side had 0.73 more soldiers per square mile are not fun for anyone.
    Can you make CITY WAR LIST a bit more in depth? it's a little vague. 

    Also, can it be done via anywhere, instead of just in council room.

    The back and forth sanctions/tanks is kind of iffy. It seems like it could legitimately go on forever/we both run out of tanks.... I don't fully like that we may be forced to fight hours on end back and forth to stay on top because placing secret tanks and getting sanctions/tank charge while defending.

    Eh, otherwise, it wasn't horrible. I'm finally getting better at surviving and seeing what I did wrong.

    It was fun, but I second this. The double sanction super secret tank stuff was great, but I don't want the war to be secret tank hunting. Can you make EMPOWER FONT SENSE see tanks too.

    Yeah, it was cool and super surprising. When you guys blew the first one, everyone was like "wtf", but... I don't really want that to be how this goes for a full month. 

    And I'd be down for the font sense idea, but it's a moot point since we already got your font. ;) huehuehue

    Funny part is, even if this was a thing you wouldn’t get to use it much 🤣

    How long before you guys can’t IMBUE? I hope you’re having font power discussions.

    Final Note

    What's the deal with bounties, though? I suspect raids are going to be much more numerous back-and-forthing. I'm just watching Fendrel at the city board making super long lists and checking them twice. Are we OK with charging for every single raid and then bounty-jumping forever afterwards until this ends or whats the deal.

    Otherwise today was complete chaos and I am screaming. The current weather forecast is breathrain all week. I died a ton, but am somehow up 5% xp. I feel like I have been dragged between Targ and Mhaldor a half dozen times in the last half hour like some kind of bloodsport badminton match.

    Meanwhile Stheno over here name-droppin like its hot (what did I do).

    Also when is this sanction going to end? itsbeen84years.jpg

    eta: nvm just ended

    I was really impressed by Mhaldor's coordination during the crusades.  The lock pressure is unreal and it seemed like everyone had their jobs down pat.  Good job, look forward to more engagements.

    I really like the monthly result posts. Short, to the point and nice flavour.

     Part of me wishes it would say who was on the winning hand, but then I think it's more interesting to let cityleaders decide whether they want to let their citizens know or not for whatever reasons they choose.

    We captured a tank right after blowing the second.

    We disarmed one too. Though Disarms count and it seems in the HELP WAR file that captures don't. Maybe to make them both desireable. Not sure.

  • Big Papa JomiBig Papa Jomi Member Posts: 162 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Yeah, I know you guys disarmed one. Nothing in the post was wrong. I just thought admin missed the capture. 

    But if captured tanks don't count towards war, then that's... Kind of stupid. It takes just as much defense to capture as it does to disarm, so I'm kind of curious as to why it doesn't seem like captures count? 

    @Ictinus Any chance you could shed some light, so we know in the future?

    Captures give you a tank that you can then use, it makes sense that disarms would be worth more since you're giving up a chance to use it on your enemy.

    Fair point, I didn't even think of this. Sounds fine to me, nevermind, then. 

    Though, I am curious: does detonating a tank give more war points then disarming? I figure it should since with detonating, you have to worry about guards and font defences and stuff.

    Capturing takes a lot longer, and requires a spot in your tank reserves. Should be noted in the update that a city overcame their enemies and turned their weapons against them.
  • AtalkezAtalkez Member, Secret Squirrel Posts: 5,292 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    I checked on this already. Because the captured tank gives you the ability to tank more than your normal capacity (5), it’s viewed as beneficial in that way without rewarding points directly.

    That said, it doesn’t make sense to capture unless you know you can detonate it. Capturing then giving by a disarm is a double hit to your point generation.

    May also be a consideration for offpeak guardbash -> tank captures? If captured tanks don't count, at least you can't run up the score that way.
