One Word: Restore.

Post by Aeyliea » Fri Apr 19, 2013 8:08 pm

Welcome to Bloodbath version 2.0. Welcome to killing that never, ever, ever stops because no one EVER gets knocked down (far).

The upshot of this is I get to kill people once every 48 hours. The downside is when I come back, I am big enough to be scumkilled or the like by the people I just attacked two days before - thus changing the face of tactics entirely. However, I am still a violent engine of death. Too much fun killing the same kingdom a dozen times over :D

Anyone elses thoughts on Restore?
Now nimble fingers, that dance on numbers / Will eat your children and steal your thunder;
While heavy torsos that heave and hurl / will crunch like nuts in the mouth of squirrels.

Yeah, its Seska. Start running now, bitch.

I'm not sure I see the point of restore in Bloodbath. If I were to lean one way, I'd go with no restore in Bloodbath.

I actually like Restore in Bloodbath... i think it adds an interesting element. Because you can build while you're safe, and attack otherwise, and get bigger, while keeping built land.

I think it's my favorite game for restore.

But you're right, it isn't 'necessary' since death in bloodbath can be rebuilt decently quickly.

I asked Aey to PM me a suggestion for restore setting. I just replied to him with some questions, and then realised it would be better posted in this thread.

Just because Bloodbath is such a fast paced game, actions there can happen daily t times.
Kaz wrote:Wouldn't setting 12 hours cause issues for some players. 12 hours of protection essentially means that if you play once a day, your kingdom comes out of protection when you're offline. 12 hours of peace essentially has the same issue for a once a day player. Someone could attack and restore before you've even had the chance to learn you'd been attacked.

Would changing the 12's to 24's work?

On the Restore Protection Period (RPP) before kingdom declare possible. That was specifically 'for' games like bloodbath where wars are fought using the kingdom declare. The idea was to prevent using RPP as a shield and jumping straight to war. If it's going to be set to 0, then there's not much point in adding that setting to the code at all.

A whole 24 hrs is best--I usually only play bloodbath once a day.

Most of those options need coding to implement, I could drop RPP to 24 hours now though.

Want a mid-age change??

I am finding I really don't like the extra 24 hour restriction of declaring war after leaving restore protection.

The post-restore no war declaration option is not active.
