Can any class of player declare a Fort Battle? Thanx!
Point on towers.Please forgive what must be a stupid question but I have searched everywhere and read all the guides but still I struggle to understand. Due to problems with port access I often have to play fort battles offline. Say I am defending and I place my player on a wall where should I move next to be most affective? If I pick a square and someone else has picked it as their square to move to which one of us gets it? Most battles, when attacking, seem to have everyone packed on the East side so again where would be the most useful place to move next? I ask 'cos I seem to always end up charging like a headless chicken to my doom! Sorry for the long diatribe but any help would sure be appreciated.
If you're ordered to bail to the north wall (or bail in general). If the entire east side bails, you have to be careful about too much LOS on the north or south walls, or sniping in the north or south. Too many snipers seem to think that bail orders don't apply to them and get hammered when the towers that were protecting them bail.With most attacks seemingly coming from the East and defenders shooting first I guess I can move back from the tower and keep my LOS on the East wall ready for when the attackers come over. Does that sound right to anyone?
Do you mean you had a report saying you didnt get to take part in the battle ?Great overview. Certainly more helpful than the "Help" page. However - having parked myself on a wall for a day and a half to make sure I got to participate in my first fort battle, I log on this evening to find out I wasn't there????? Does this mean-:
(a) despite the blurb to the contrary, it is essential that you be on line for the battle, and if so (b) is this yet another example of this game being designed and targetted to Northern Hemisphere players, because I'm damned if I am going to get out of bed at four in the morning just to play a browser game!!!
I guess I'll just have to be content being a lonely cowpoke, doing jobs, filling quests, and building my town.
