PG needs to reinvigorate Atlas and soon. Complete resets, seasons resets, etc.
all feel like ARE non starters and that means building upon what is already there in a constructive way by dangling carrots and not sticks. Incentive to get and keep valuable land becomes the stick. Failure to defend means the enemy takes away your goodies.
PG needs a small but high end land grab with new T6 castles. Roughly 400 castles not including NML zones is what I calculated based on motivating D1 teams to migrate with enough tension to keep them fighting for resources. 80% of these castles should be easily accessible without having to create a long string of bubbles to attack. The last 20% would be the most highly prized castles out of the bunch.
Castle guards should be either completely eliminated or fixed to scale correctly AND give substantially LESS glory to reduce incentive to trade guards once some stability is reached on all T6 castles only.
T4s should stop giving full glory once the new land is occupied and follow the standard glory band rules. T5 and T6 should always give full glory. PG should stick to the current rules and not allow new teams below Sap into Atlas as part of this revamp and allow the castle less clans the chance to pick up some T2s.
Feel free to pick this idea apart but you better have really solid alternatives to propose instead.
