a suggestion about attacks

wouldn't it possible for there to be a rule that you can only attack someone of the same level?

I get slaughtered hourly and have to rebuild and there is no way i could defend myself against an army as big as what attacks me. they are at a further stage in research. couldn't there be limits to who large developed armies can attack? Like not to those so much smaller?

So trying not to make just another farming game as many others, this game succeeded to turn into just another war game as many others - if you have money and time enough, and have aggression and arrogance in surplus, then this is your game. And this is only Alpha with limited number of players. I hate to think what would happen when there will be hundreds of new players - as I see many fans of Gunrox are eagerly waiting to play.

To be attacked 17 times in one day is outrageous. Maybe one or two but not 17. makes you wonder why even bother donating more money, if another person has more and does not care. To be run over after spending any amount of money is just not right. Is not my 100 worth the same as anyone else. I should get something for my donation. Instead of being insulted, and humiliated because I do not have more to spend. No game that you pay for or donate to should make you cry. You want to feel good about donating and enjoying your investment. From what I am seeing happening now, it is very disheartening.

yes it has become just a game of war, which we were led to believe it is not, but to be attacked on and on and you sit there and watch everything you have put into destroyed and know that you will have to start all over again and then the same thing can happen is not fun at all.

Yeah this sounds like a problem. What part of the tech tree are you around? How much resources are they getting from you each raid? Do you have towers, walls and stash's yet? Are you on collectivism? And what type/amount of units is the person attacking you with?

Because if someone is attacking you over and over (especially with higher tier units) for no apparent reason they are totally being a jerk and need to be reported for being a bully.

It has been discussed multiple times before:

Sandy, if the insults you are talking about are verbal, this is definitely not acceptable - PM me and it will be taken care of.

To be attacked 17 times a day you need to be next door to the attacker, since avarage distance for a catapult is 30 min one way to be any effective. You don't spawn in the middle of developed cities anymore. So, what were you exactly thinking going to happen when you saw your neighbour growing and you falling behind and you having zero defence in town?

With the insults i get every day from my lovely neighbours i can make a scrapbook full of screenshots

Currently we are working on automated reports feature so dealing with insults will be 1-click report and offender will be punished, no need to do screenshots. Basically this is the main reason why we are not inviting new people massively - need to make that system first. This moderation report system is #1 priority feature now. We have redesigned messaging system only because it was required to implement this new moderation.

For now temporary solution could be using ignore list, but ofcourse, offenders should be punished and they will be.

Beserker: so here's what happened to me. Yes, I am right in the middle of an aggressive alliance which are way bigger and more advanced than me in all ways. So even if i have towers and walls maxed, they get destroyed in an instant. So how am i meant to survive? I was attacked 17 times in the 12 hours the Lada ward wore off, with 3 armies at the same time each time with rams and all sorts of things and I just sat and watched my town being destroyed and then they started on the next town. I have read the advice about defense but it seems that is it impossible to survive. Do you have any advice for me? I have spent a lot of time and money getting to the stage I am at and I don't want to start over. Yesterday I was so frustrated I did write an insult for which I later ( after I calmed down) apologized. And I am sorry, but so frustrated, I do love the game but I don't want to be continually every 3 days building it all up or loosing towns, that way I cannot advance. I want peace! What to do?

It may be hard to suggest solution now, as you already suffered significant damage, but the #1 step you have to do is to max out your towers! If you had 20-30 towers all maxed out along with Collectivism bonus, attackers would think twice before touching you. Unfortunately despite the fact that this receipt is simple and straightforward, a lot of people postpone building towers until it is too late.

If you have been attacked by a multiple players (alliance), unfortunately your defences are limited, especially, if they are significantly more developed than you. In this case you can only defend with the help of your own alliance.

If you are in a bad situation with mutliple attacks coming from all sides, you might sacrifice your less important towns and concentrate on the most important one - max out wall and towers in it and concentrate all your army in it. Apply defensive item on that town. Have your allies send all their reinforcements in that town only by the time your truice ends. Members of your alliance who are the most distant from you should send their whole army, and not just a couple of units.

In the rest of the towns don't bother building towers, without army they will be wiped by rams easily. Better build houses/cottages there until your building percentage will reach 50% - the houses are harder to destroy and will help you building towers on the next truce.

Your current short term goal is to survive with minimum damage between truces with the helm of your alliance. Your long term goal is to have maxed wall and towers in all towns and maxed army with catacombs in place. And by saying "maxed out wall and towers" I mean wall or fortified wall level 9 or 10 and 20-30 level 5 towers depends on your research status.

People, NEVER FORGET ABOUT YOUR DEFENSE! No matter how peaceful you are or how good your diplomacy is. Build towers in-between your regular buildings CONSTANTLY. I cannot emphasize that hard enough. Do not complain if you do not do that, because it is not the game's fault then, it is yours!

All of this from an alliance that has repeatedly attacked others.

Reply to Arrivederci :

Arrivederci, i have to say two things regarding that,

1) Im not going to justify those "insults" but normal people does not attack without any reason.If you are beeing insulted,then you should understand how the rest of the people feel when you post in a thread of people that complains(mostly on your attacks) and that post has a clear double intention.

2) As i suppose most of the people are normal,and so, does not attack without reason, i suggest you to compare the insults you get and the ones you send.I suppose noone has insulted you directly, because, who would dare to insult the mayor emperor of the game at her face? So what insults have you got? Its really easy to lie saying you have something and dont showing it. As you are constantly attacking people with double intentions you have to prove what you are saying.Unless you have been REALLY insulted with swear words and not only offended you dont have the right to speak of beeing offended or annoyed by someone, sorry.

I repeat that, while im not justifying any kind of insults or swear words,i need some proofs to believe that what you say is true, as i am too ingenuous to think that people attack without reason.

PD: i have read Cargil's comment. She apologized, so if you were going to post anything, thing that i doubt, dont post her comment, as you must already have thousands of insults, am i wrong?

I think that Arri has done us all a favor by attacking. Someone has to test out this stuff. Remember this is still alpha. If left to the majority of players the war aspect of this game would not be tested. I understand that multiple attacks suck but it still needs to be tested. Bers has said many times that if you can't take it wait till the game is released to play! There are plenty of match three and time management and other games. This is totem Tribe. I know in the original game the wolf tribe killed me many times before I learned how to beat that island. I never cried that they were unfair. Just because here there is a real target to complain about I do not see the difference between her actions and them.

I would like to add a little bit to this thread. My words are not always what people want to hear .. but I am used to that :)

This is not a one-dimensional game of culture and expansion. It is also a game of war and survival. I see something that I personally refer to as the "culture war" .. (who can be the biggest?) ... forsaking all else .. ignoring all the other essential elements of the game .. which includes preparing your town for hero survival. (in favor of gaining a few extra cells?) I realize that the majority of people out there prefer to remain peaceful and cultural, and I respect that. But this is such a small portion of what is available in game play and what others around you are participating in. If you prefer peace and survival, use the elements within the game to ensure that for yourself.

I can say that the lesson I learned in survival was not an easy one. And I assume it will not be in the future. Armies are lost, heroes die, but a battle can be fun. Being the biggest is nice, but it is not always best.

This is true. Don't think that she does this for that purpose though: she also did literally EVERYTHING she could to prevent me to test a bug, fortunately I could do it anyway as planned. But, as a donator she has way more her place here than me anyway.

I do not believe this statement to be true. I think you are a valuable asset to testing and that matters more then the donations

I agree with Tuey.  You are a valuable testing asset.

If a player sends a message to his neighbor "get off your territory voluntarily, otherwise you will be sorry" somehow I can't make myself believe that he/she is an altruist whose only purpose is to contribute to the game, testing it's war aspects – this looks to me more like the behaviour of a typical bully, practicing over a player who has smaller army and military structures because he/she had chosen the cultural development. In my opinion testing war aspects can be done with more success against other Leaderism players equal to you or bigger in strength. And such an ultimatum somehow does not make me feel grateful and enjoying the game despite the lessons which I appreciate too (although I made different conclusions from them). We all understand the need to have balance in the game and in the last few months there were several major changes aimed at restricting the immoderate cultural expansion – have you read somewhere a Collectivism player complaining about that? Cargil's post was not about removing war aspects of the game – it was about balance too! - so that we all can enjoy the game.

What kind of balance are you guys looking for? We all started on the same day. If you must know im number 14 in the donation list which means that there are at least 13 people that have more resources on their hands than i do. I have 5 members in the alliance compared to 50 in your union. Is it on me that your union works only on paper and only common theme for you is to discuss me?

I warned everyone around from day one that my neighbors will be in war with me, they chose to stay.
