Has anyone presented the idea of removing horse and saddle equipment from defenders? After all, defenders usually have wall and tower bonus and horses can't climb walls and towers. So eliminate any bonuses that would come with them.
I'm petrified knowing how true this is. lol1) unreliable, unenforcible, language barriers, egos, etc. make this a fool's errand
Why not adjust the fort structure bonuses ? .. Walls Towers etc dont have to have the bonuses or levels currently allocated. Could be done in 2 mins flat and has been in past times.
