Am I the only one here that thinks this game is kind of cliquey? Players are only ever concerned with the other players that are in their same land size/NW. a player at 100,000 NW and 1,000 land doesn't worry at all about a player at 50,000 NW with 600 land, and neither are they concerned with players that are at 300,000 NW with 2,500 land. Also, the more elite players form packs and play against others that are similar to them with respect to experience and power. This sort of thing i think really distances players and creates multiple different games within the one, and it sort of holds back the possibility of a much greater gaming community, which in my opinion, separates a good game from a great game.
I see proof in this when I go to the global council and see that threads have hundreds of views but only a few people dominating the actual posts in the threads. This includes me, I have played several rounds of this and for the most part I really haven't participated in the global council until this post here.
so i propose that something should be done to more so bind the players together in a way that doesn't allow the larger players to completely ignore the smaller players or the people that started late, and vice versa.
I really only have one idea on how to do this, but I'm hoping that this strikes up a conversation with a few ideas.
Mine is that there should be some casualties on the defensive side even when bouncing an attack. This could allow smaller realms to collaborate in taking down a target by weakening them first, and would therefore force players to consider EVERY player and not just the ones similar in size and power. There are some problems with this idea I admit: powerful players may be spammed with lots of bounces to weaken them, and it could also promote cheating by giving incentive for realms to work together. Buuut it's still something that I think could be considered.
*Disclaimer* I don't think that this game has huge problem with its community, the people who are involved are well involved. I just think things can always be better
