Post-Downtime Army?

Postby GTAce » Tue May 10, 2005 12:42 am

As you might already know, we were forced to roll all data back to Wednesday, May 5th. This includes data for the army. Before we just turn the Army back on and let everybody loose, we wanted to let the community decide what happens from here on out.

Here are the ptions we came up with (feel free to make more suggestions)
  • Give everybody the money they would have earned (from normal money production in between Wednesday and now) - this would amount to many hundreds of thousands of gold per person...let them spend freely</li>
  • Give everybody this gold, but disable the costly upgrades (so people can only buy smaller upgrades they would have been able to afford otherwise)
    ** If we do one of these two, it is probably best to disable attacks for 12 hours or so, so that nobody is wide open for attack with 500,000 gold, and no chance to spend it</li>
  • We can divide everybody's money and turns by the number of rounds, so it is as if all armies went on vacation for these 5 days (nobody gains any gold or turns...all armies would have 30,000-60,000 gold depending income)</li>
  • Lastly, we can reset the army and start all over again</li>
Like I said, these are only the options we came up with, if you have more, let us know...Let us know which of these you would rather see done also

Sorry we had to do this :(

I like option 2 - Disable costly upgrades (no one would normally have been able to afford them) and disable attacks for a period of time. We may want to limit attack turns to 15 cuz I foresee a scenario like this: a few peeps haven't checked their armies in a day or so, leaving a number of peeps with $500,000 +......1 person with 75 attack turns could make out big time if they hit it just right.

Now that I think about it, I'm with Invid and Do Me. Simpler that way.

I'm for a reset personally. I have 2 motivations. 1. we have already had one money boom due to the previous outage. 2. the division of money and updating everything could take a while. I would like to get this thing going again as soon as possible.

oh well... I am not gonna argue the point. I just know what my time looks like. I am just worried about the amount of time it would take us to get it back up and going. But since college boy is out of school. maybe his lazy bum can do it. :P

Reseting the army would suck..it does take way too long to get going, the new army system is all about good strategy, so even a big money boom won't do too much depending on your strategy. A money boost would be nice and everyone would be moving up evenly anyways...it's like moving it up a few days...
