useless statistics :))))
Mostly, yes.
Though, I would argue that the base hearts and total hearts per world is illustrative of the relative health of the fort fighting communities on each world and might justify a deeper analysis into which worlds might reasonably be skipped over, or see reduced awards for fort fighting initiatives that require significant Team resources to benefit a limited number of players

Thanks for that.

I wish they would just follow such statistics and finally open some optional migration routes.

I agree; I would like to see Galveston and Dakota closed off to GM digs and offer migration to, say, Fairbank, to anyone who has participated in FF's.
Perhaps one the other or both could be declared a fort-free world (assign all forts to Henry and make them uncapturable) and players on any world seeking a fort-free existence could choose to migrate there.

You've got some good ideas and initiatives, Goober. Too bad that devs team shows barely any signs of life..

I assume this is because Colorado is already FF heavy? Even in an optional migration, you're going to want more than one trail. Fairbanks, Arizona and Juarez look like your top three. Kansas and Las Vegas came after the change to the battle formulae, so they don't count.

I don’t know much about the migration protocols, but, yes, for players who already have a developed toon on the primary migration path, secondary paths should be offered (within reason)

I proposed fairbank because it opened between those two and has a decently healthy FF community that would hopefully best benefit from the influx

Why are the bonds rewarded to a particular side before the battle? Doesn't that just encourage all chars to sign up for that side?

It is an attempt to get people to sign up for the side that people think will lose in an effort to have better battles.
It seems to work unevenly between the worlds so I will think on it.

(Sorry. Don't want to flood this thread but I couldn't prevent myself to post that /o\.
So to not entirely flood, I'll report a tiny mistake : it's "Join us Friday (2022-03-18)"
And while I'm at it, thanks for all you do Goober).

I hope that people are looking in their Territory's Multiplayer Games button and/or paying attention to the Saloon Topic first. Having the times listed here is great, too, but should really be the secondary method of directing people to Awesomia.

I don't know where to write this but I think there's a problem in kansas battles : earlier there were a battle dug by a player for friday 10:30 pm and NPC awesomia for saturday at 8 pm (as mentionned above). But now the battle dug by the player is scheduled for 8 pm and awesomia for 11:30 pm (and this for friday for both) ... ?

I will look into this. Thank you.

Why the time its at f**** 00 am on the most popular server...

It’s a rotating schedule for all worlds seeing battles at each of 18,19,20,21,22,23, and 00 over time. Colorado’s next battle should be at 22:00, then 20, 18, 23, 21, 19, 00, 22, etc.
