Hey everyone, seems like we’re all getting a bit hot under the collar with the 4.5 updates, mostly with the 24hr cooldown.
Here’s what I think and my suggestion on how to handle it.
24hr cooldown is only a problem if you get attacked. Why would you get attacked? Because:
- you hold land someone else wants
- you pissed someone(s) off enough that they would want to waste troops attacking you
- you made a mistake and hold land above your station (i.e. you can’t hold it with the troops and player levels you got)
On the flip side, why would someone want to hit you? Other than the above, there is only really a couple of other reasons:
- because they’re bored and being d*cks (yes you know who you are)
- because they’re fighting for global ranking
Will the vast majority of teams fall into the above? No. In fact, of all the reasons above, the ONLY REAL REASON for someone to want to hit you is the last one - that they’re fighting for global ranking. And with the shitty rewards on offer, only the top 20 teams would even be interested in global ranking, maybe only the top 10.
So what does this mean?
IMO, level 4s and 5s are most vulnerable as they’re most desirable and in the context of the changes, also easier to conquer now. If you own a 4 or 5 and are wondering if you are strong enough to hold it, the answer is probably No.
For the rest of us plebs, this change, while significant, probably won’t have much impact. So you lose a castle - infra goes into storage. Go find another one to conquer. With the amount of land available that should be pretty easy. Alternatively, hold extra land - if you lose one just set up your infra elsewhere.
So, don’t stress - let it play out and see what happens.
Just my 2c - probably worth less than 1c
Edit: I’m not saying this is a good change - it’s a shit change. Just saying maybe it’s not the end of the world.
