could you not varie the times so each server got earlier and later fights i cant do the times set for my server but could have made the earlier ones if they were available i know im only one person but im sure there are a few others that might be in the same position
just my view anyway

stay safe and have fun people

Seems like a good improvement idea! We'll check what we can do

In the lasts awesomia battles it was the contrary though : players complained because all the battles were at the same time; they couldn't participate on every sever they had toons on it because of that.

I'll surely be a bit annoying but I don't understand why all the new teams don't want to do as Kuro's team did : their system really worked pretty well ... I'm not even talking about the ticket thing but about battles themselves. They dug with one full hour between each battle so there were time to participate on each server; here 30 minutes between each battle is better than if they were all at the exact same hour but it may be short. And more importantly : it wasn't every time the same hour for each server, there were a shift in the schedule. I mean : here for example for Arizona, they are all at 8 pm so those who can't participate at this hour won't be able to participate in any battle cause the 4 battles are at the same hour. But with the previous-previous team it wasn't like that : for the same server, if the first battle was at 7 pm the second wasn't but was at something like 8 pm, the third at another hour too etc, so the most possible players could participate ...

When there's A, some want B, when there's B, some want C, and when tehre's finally a C, some want an A!! :-D
as long as people only see 1 option, they will find the fault, and want the other options provided.
We'll never be able to satisfy everyone.
So, hold the ground and stay tight! :lol:


On a different context. What will happen if player dig a awesomia battle close to a scheduled GM's dig time?
just like now, in Arizona, there's awesomia dig by a player, even there will be GM's dig on the 2th of October.

I've never seen anyone complain with "A", so that's why I don't understand it has been changed ...
Imo, the current schedule is fine as it is.
For me, I can think that "Oh, the next 2 Awesomia dig in Arizona would be done at 8pm too!" which simplify the train of thought. and there's actually a pair world for the other day (A-F),(B-G),(D-H),(E-I),(C-K),(J)..

Not sure what people hoped for in the battle, but I believe mostly want the pretzel rewards, so offline attendance should be fine and require simple effort by getting yourself to the fort.

You might be right SB.access, personally I'm not concerned by the complaints, I can't tell for others what exactly they are expecting for (even though I can imagine a bit). I'm aware that having a fix schedule has its advantages too, and in my own case 10 pm for kansas is just perfect :p I know too how to be sure to participate so I don't even need the ticket thing neither.

It was just a general comment : before, everything worked fine with these battles, then it has been changed I don't know why, and since then they are complaints at every modification (except for the increased rooms in attack; that I think everyone likes it :p or don't care for those who don't fill the fort).

The more I think about it, the more I think if it's changed, either it's because the team didn't know how it was organised before (Nyborg seemed to discover the thing for example) either it's because the previous system asked for too much effort for the team. A lot more complicated to organise with a shift than without, and with ticket than without.
And that, that'd be understandable.

please do not declare war on the castle between the specified dates. Taking into account the recommendations, battle times will be changed so that each round is different.

Is there any reason why all those ffs are in the same time window? It may be great for Europeans but for the rest of the world, especially those working, the times are a joke. Half the purpose of the ffs is for social interaction. That is being denied to us even if you can get there as an offie.

The game is marketed as a world one but it seems to be primarily focused on one geographic region. Time to change the paradigm and give non-Europeans a fairer crack of the whip. Why cannot there be geographic based servers? Such servers shouldn't preclude anybody joining them though, simply operate to serve 'local' needs.

Instead of closing say Galveston, why not turn it into a 'North American' world or an 'Australasian' world and. as an experiment, allow migration there for players interested in ffs outside the European dominated times. If it fails, it fails - fair enough. If it succeeds, then perhaps it indicates a way forward for the future.

But please, please, please have some of the Awesomia ffs in future events outside the tight time range Inno is now using.

4 battles are planned in a 14-day period. If we only fight a war every day, it won't catch up, so it's prepared by sharing it in 2 days.

Battle dates and times have been changed. That's how it was prepared because the time was short. In the following events, the two battle breaks will be prepared over 1 hour.

Is it possible to lock the ability "Declare War" towards Awesomia? So no one can mistakenly (or intentionally) dig there, you know players being players.

The new schedule does not change what I said one bit. All ffs are still scheduled between 20:00 and 23:00 ST: not one of the 44 ffss listed above is outside that time window. For east Coast US, that is 2 pm to 5 pm.

I ask again: why cannot one or two be timed to better suit players on other continents than Europe? It is bad enough trying to deal with European players within the game enforcing their own rules made to suit only themselves and then having to deal with the abuse when you challenge them. It now seems Inno are intent on taking it to another level .

I see that the Awesomia ffs dug for tomorrow do not remotely match the schedule presented above. How can that happen?
