with the new hero gear resulting in way higher attribute points attackers can easily destroy defenses without real losses. like bronze troops and jacques or tiadrin, cleo etc.
on 41 this resulted in a map with 20 captured cities in total.
the strongest kingdom wanted to unlock itself to get more players on board. this time they did not even drop their cities, but just flooded another kingdom with 20+ feeder alt accounts to get more cities for a short period of time. not complaining that this system should be total player power based here (there are already topics).
the thing which will happen next is obvious: as soon as the 1 city kingship goes live, 1 hour before the election other kingdoms will get flooded with alt accounts once more, voting for a non real player as the king instead. those kingdoms can literally do nothing to defend themselves against this game abuse, except creating alt accounts on their own and focussing heavily on siege.
not sure how the situation is on other servers, but on 41 there are several players with 10 or more feeder alt accounts and it just got absurd, since you can not compete with players sitting on literally unlimited resources.
question for the team: would you consider this kind of playing the game as cheating?
if the answer is hopefully yes, please add a mechanism to report feeder alt accounts and ban them.
i think players having 1 feeder account (or a second account they really play for real is kind of ok), 10+ to just feed the res, unlock kingdoms, destroy votes etc. is just too far and will result in many of the "normal" players quitting the game in frustration.
