  1. Casual people don't have to invest heavily in the projects required to get the colony to begin with, that's why it's optional to the people who choose to partake in it. Not everyone will be involved in this secondary game, it's exclusive. The people who choose to farm will continue to farm, but the people who liked the active raiding style on Orbis in the lower tiers but don't find much luck in the higher tiers are strapped for things to do; thus everyone becomes a casual by the end game. Thus is why I suggested completely different mechanics. If Planet X is going to solve the issues that Orbis has it needs to do it organically, in a way that the game mechanics support it integrally. That's why a dynamic shift in the way the game is actually played as a whole is necessary. Wack isn't the way to describe the potential for various changes, when presented with the idea of a potential side-by-side planet, there's no reason to have it be essentially the same; if you want that just play on the test server
  2. Orbis has a long and drawn out history. With the introduction of the new space program related projects, it brings forth in the mind the potential for colonisation. The idea goes that those with the right space-related projects, one can develop a new colonial country on a second planet, let's call it Planet X. Fulfilling much of what the test server does now, but with real ingame benefits, the Planet X colonisation project can act as a staging ground for new and exciting mechanics that otherwise would not see the light of day under the present Orbis way of gameplay. I think of this in the same way that the Builder Base functions in Clash of Clans, a secondary, smaller yet distinctly different game that can act as a sequel to PnW. Some suggestions for how the two can interact: There are no alliances on Planet X, or, colonies on Planet X can be run collectively by an Orbis alliance Colonies on Planet X have special projects that can lend passive buffs to an Orbis nation, increasing specialisation and intranational diversification Completely different war mechanics, such as a 1v1 system of fighting with a single 'active war' slot that combines offensive and defensive, where players make their best attacks and win money and resources within the space of, say, 8 hours (would have to be an opt-in process), preventing the slow and time consuming farming gameplay of regular Orbis PnW. Could call them 'skirmishes' Resource production and management styled in a distinct way, where one can 'offshore' money and resources back to Orbis but it is one-way. It does not come back to Planet X There are plenty of distinct, new and exciting ways to play PnW that could require people to continue actively playing the game after they reach the city count plateau where, if one is in a farming alliance, there is no reason to continue logging in each day aside for some small bonuses or the occasional war. With a different game mode that promotes active gameplay, like another planet entirely, the problem of inactivity for larger nations may be solved.
  3. Britannian Rookie mistake
  4. i can't believe it's not butter

  5. I did this to gain your favour The only thing TCW sponsors is the procurement of elephants and the baking of bread
  6. you ever think about how planes fly? Like they're really heavy and they don't even have hollow bones

  7. - yeah I did but that didn't stop me Such a shame I won't get the chance to flatter her again ?
  8. Pizza time ?

  9. I presented something like this earlier for when Arrgh! was thinking of ideas to revitalise. Removing the cap on updeclares and infinite offensive slots was my idea, and if you're worried about balancing such a thing then you could combine the two in a project: You can now declare war on as many people as you like as long as 3 are within the classic war range, all other wars must be above 75% of your own score. Making it a project is good too since you know, there haven't been new projects in forever and a day
  10. The case against who, you? As far as we're concerned, any member in any alliance is fair game for recruitment and by trying to use 'poaching' as the way to get community backing is possibly the weakest route you could go through. The members we wanted with us we had a prior history with, so it is not unfounded either. Regardless, look to the people who rejected our advances as your best members. But yes, if you can't join 'em, beat 'em.
