Continuing the discussion from To encourage teammates to help teammates:
I want to circle back to this. I have tried playing a few other mobile games and they all have this feature. I know people claim it can be hacked and used to cheat. If that is true then 2 things have happened. First PG developed it in a way that could be easily exploited and second the game has far more issues than an exploited help.
Below are my suggestions for this feature based on what I have seen in other games.
This help is restricted to your team and once per day (even if you move teams)
The help provided is a % of the build. Longer builds should get a higher %.
This feature does not use timers from players. It is simply a predefined % and you need teammates online and clicking “Assist”.
Scenario: I start a build at 30 days. The predefined % my team can help is 10% max. Meaning if all 49 other players help then I can shave 10% off the total build time, 3 days down. Once I get help that is it. I have to wait until the next day to ask again.
This is a discussion and would like to keep it that way. Hash out fears of exploits or abuse. Expand on how to improve. Lets come together as a community on an aspect our game is lacking. I would tag the PG people but honestly I don’t know who would be tagged for this.
