Well with yet another new flax tower I had an idea. To bounce off all of you

As the game has grown over the years personal account size keeps growing. With the addition of of each new tower to the game, players store the old towers. These stored towers are taking up massive space on each account. Buy Finding a way to decrease player account size by smelting unused towers we can improve player account loading speed, and server crashes. Smelting can add a new strategy to the game while helping to improve the gaming environment.
Smelting is the removal of a defense tower from a players inventory.
HOW IT WORKS
Smelting takes place as part of the current Builders Hut. It follows the rules and operation already in place at the BUILDERS HUT just adds an option. (I.E. one smelting spot normal game operations, two smelting spots for VIP) So when you click on a current tower that is placed in your base you have these options. Upgrade, boost, store, and now smelt. By clicking smelt it displays a box similar to upgrading but says SMELTING. It also says how much time it will take and what the player receives for smelting said base. Both time and items received for smelting a tower is based on the current table for each base but doubles the received items, or gives two items depending on tower being smelted. This will encourage players to remove those unused towers. While maintaining a fair and balanced playing environment .
Example: lighting tower Lvl 22. To upgrade: 8 days and costs 252K wood. Smelting the same tower would show : 8 days and receive 508K wood.
If a player options to smelt a tower that uses specialty items like Ice Shards those speciality items will not be doubled but lumber will be added in its place.
Example. Ice turret lvl 26 Upgrade. 12 days cost of 1400 shards. Same lvl tower smelted. 12 days. Receive 1400 shards and the last wood used for lvling around 400K I think. But needs confirmed.
SMELTING IS NOT ALLOWED DURING ANY TYPE OF FORTIFICATION EVENT.
In Order to maintain smaller account size every few months I propose a smelting event. Where players smelt towers for milestones and prizes. Outline of event in process .
