It's insane in YOUR style of play.Which is precisely why I don't rely on just my experience and get feedback from dozens of FS members as well.
Disagree strongly. If as you say the current choice is between 30 minutes per day on one task and 2.5 hours per day I say that the choice has already been taken away because 2.5h per day is insane.
Perhaps you aren't familiar with the term? Quality Of Life is a gaming term. QoL
With QoL changes, it's not about making the game easier, it's more just the user interface. Things like removing unnecessary clicks for declining.
- "Quality of Life" in the context of video games refers to features or aspects of gamedesign that ensure that players have a smooth gameplay experience
There are plenty of players willing to spend the time and are rewarded for it, I myself am able to do this for about once every 9 weeks.
Just because something doesn't fit your style of play doesn't mean it's no ones style, I know many many players from different guilds who play manualy especially in the last rounds to save troops, I myself usually can't be bothered.
I am a competing player weekly for the top spots and I can guarantee you that with this change you'll force me to play everything manually to keep competing for the top spots.
Since you can save so many troops manually and since it will take only an hour maybe 2 for each round to complete all possible scouted provincies. it will become an absolute must. as enough players will be willing to take that much time, in the easier provinces or if the game becomes easier over time it will become a game of who scouted the most provinces.
Steel tournament has already became that way on some servers, on the slovakian(dony) server for example, you see people hitting there province caps with insane scores. and it ain't unlikely a similar thing will happen in 9-18 weeks on my live server.
Guess who scouted the most? This wasn't a game of skill but a whole different game.
In your idea this is 73 fights per round, thats the same amount as now 18.25 provinces.
which is more than low enough for plenty of people to consider to go manual on all battles. from starting players who do 15 provinces to die harders who will do 73.
