View Full Version : Adding Allies During a War

No matter how many rules you write someone is always going to figure out how to game the game. The latest incarnation of this is dropping allies to get a good match up and then adding them during the war to increase stats. Has anyone been matched up with one of these Factions that uses this stunt? Can Gree write a little code to prevent this? Should it be prevented?

It has been being done for a while now, it is a good strategy. Due to it being so difficult and time consuming it shouldnt be prevented in any way in my opinion

same as above. been there, done that, moved on. frankly surprised it took so long for more factions to try this.

first off it can cost gold to do unless you have a group large enough all constantly re-adding each other. above all, like streaking it can be tricky. it takes all of attributes that make an excellent team: dedication, communication, discipline. therefore it doesnt matter if they "patch it" or not (which would punish people who not simply dont have 500 allies) because so few will be able to successfully pull it off anyway.

smaller groups work better because they're easier to organize but then again you'll still have to spend gold out-competing (and maybe losing to) a group of llps who have their s*** together enough to realize they probably shouldnt f*** with 5 people that have 1 ally and swarm your cc with 60 seconds left. its not a perfect strategy and it has it's draw backs as much as its benefits.
