Idea title:
New type of town hat to be added, named "fort battle leader" hat.


Details of idea:

"fort battle leader" hat would be given by black or silver hats to players that only want to lead battles, but dont want to get involved in world/town/alliance politics.
Players with "fort battle leader hat" would not be able to see secret forums, where all drama happens that makes them not want to lead anymore.

Player with "fort battle leader hat" would be able to:
-dig battles
-rank in battles as general
-invite new players to town
-demote him/herself back to brown hat.
-invite towns to fort <-- EDIT
-remove town from fort (silver hat cant do that) <-- EDIT

would not be able to:
-send out town invites to new towns
-give silver, black or fort battle leader hat to others
-remove any hat from town <-- EDIT
-see secret forums

Reasons for submitting:
"fort battle leader hat" would make it possible to quickly find players that are willing to lead battle, just by viewing the list of townies.
Too many fort battle leaders( black and silver hats amt) quit because they get burdened with world/town/alliance politics. I think creation of "fort battle leader" hat woud push this burden on black/silver hats only and made it easier for fort battle leaders to do their job.

example:
Lets say you are a black hat in 30+ player fort fighting town. New guy joins your town, he wants to dig, lead and rank battles as general. You want to give him this chance, but you dont want to give him access to black hat forums and ability to kick you or your townies out of town, which he gets by becoming a black hat. At the same time you have many silver hats in your town that were with you for ages and it feels unfair for someone to just jump in and get black hat right avay, before them.

"Fort battle leader hat" would make it possible for a new guy to lead and rank battles as general and remove/invite town to forts, without giving him/her the keys to your town.

I am open to any solution that would make it possible for a player to dig,rank as general, send fort invitations to towns, remove towns from forts and at the same time not beeing able to kick/remove other townies from town he is at or see secret forums where all the drama goes on and makes every new guy, that wants to try leading, want to quit.

Could call the rank Town's Marshall, I think it's a good idea to have a hat specifically for Fort leaders.

Or we need customisable permissions, like Grepolis has :p

Great idea...sadly it will never get implemented. Inno doesn't really care about what players want.

Something tiny like this is the kinda thing we could actually get implemented, I imagine it's like copying some code, changing some tags and bob's your uncle.

Whether or not the support team actually pass any player ideas onto development is another story....

Yes, this should not be too hard to implement and its something bigger fort fighting towns would really use when recruting new fort battle leaders.
If you give a new player, who recently joined town, a black hat just so he/she can lead battles as general, then this is not only a slap in the face to all other brown/silver hats, who were with you in the same town for years.

You dont know this player, getting a black hat too fast is such an ego boost for some, that they think they have the right to start bossing/harassing/be rude to other brown silver hats on forums and chat, creating drama.

On the other side, some fort battle leaders just want to lead battles and distance themselves from politics(khm khm drama) on secret forums which makes many want to quit. And when fort battle leaders quit, the world slowly starts to die.

Fort battle leader hat, is something that is needed, belive me.

Instead, lets make a new set that will increases (already insane) damages by about %20, because why not?!

As a fort leader, I've experienced a lot of bad drama in the past that really didn't motivate me to lead battles. This would be a good idea for sure.

Sometimes I'm not able to be online for a defense and it would be good to rank someone else general to do the ranking. But, knowing people - they just might start demanding that all of them be ranked generals rather than captains, lol

In the past, I've considered the idea of the alliance giving the status of "colonel" to a number of leaders, people who get auto ranked in every alliance battle and can rank in them while they don't have to do any politics. But that is probably a more complicated prospect than your plan.

Changed my mind, can't get anything implemented unless it's a new set, so i propose a new Fort battle leader set. Each town gets one set, Set bonus is automatic General rank. Takes away the need for a new feature since that's impossible.

Or you could just sell it for 50 Euros and reinvest nothing :)
