Dutchy... I agree with you to a point. The issue isn't tokens (at least for me) or "winning" or any of that crap. You want tokens go be the spammer of the month.
My concern is the fact that we're trying to get "everyone" involved. And NOONE (aside from those who are here) have anywhere near the resources or strength to do anything. Plus without attacking colonies there's nothing to fight for. There's no reason anyone would just sit there and let their army die. If you're trying to defend youself sure you give it all you have. But to just be overwhelmed on a random OP in the middle of nowhere that would do zero for you even if you kept it.... Who fight's that battle? That's my concern.
80 - 85 % of the world (probably more like 90 - 95%) have played themselves out of the era. If they had the strength necessary to compete with SAS or iS don't you think they would have made some sort of move during the 200 ticks ppl were complianing? Wouldn't they have secured 1 relic?
Fact is with the current disturbution of resources if iS OR SAS is in the war there is no war.
Because here is how it would go....
SAS kills all iS minor allies
iS kills all SAS minor allies
150 - 200 ticks have passed and were just staring at each other again.
Oh and the world is in ruin.
Nobody attacks anyone.
iS allies don't mess with any SAS allies. For fear of SAS.
SAS allies don't attack iS allies. For fear of iS.
And we have a world stalemate instead of war.
Let's be honest for a sec. Who really is willing to attack SAS or iS? Seriously? Who's going to try to come to iS island or SAS desert?
Who isn't concerned if SAS or iS has 150 units 4 ticks from you?
Untill the world gets to that point... all this is, is talk.
Unless the playing field is leveled. Then people get brave.
