I will be sad to see a couple of my my friends vanish who randomly leave the game for 9 months and then return.

But... the perma-sitting was such a huge problem, I think this simple strategy is the best solution.

I will be interested to see what happens in 180 days.

Well, they don't have to play in the meantime... it shouldn't be too hard to answer the reminder mail, do 5 clicks to renew sitting rights and then go for the next 6 month...

This will break some supply routes, but that was very necessary. Now the only way to get lots of towns is the HARD way up the pop ladder =)

I've been thinking about all of these changes for the last day, especially the "more than 10" thing. That one really made me worry. Lately though, I was beginning to think I may have overthought it a bit but now, with this, I absolutely believe these two changes are the best things that could have happened to Illyriad at this point (assuming Pathfinding isn't rolling out in a couple of hours).

Is this reallyl going to free up any slots?  It seems like it will take a long time from now until the map gets any clearer.. and with players able to get more than 10 cities, it might actually be more crowded

90 days is a BLIP in Illy time. There are people who have been playing here for the entire 5 years.

It'll actually be 160 to 180 days for the inactive accounts to delete (90 to end sitting and 60 for non purchasing or 90 for Prestige purchasing accounts to auto-delete). That's as much as six months for harvesting. Plenty of time. Then there'll be a few spots opened up but I'd expect any of those spots not captured to be settled by the alliance mates of those inactive accounts.

I still don't like the 10+ city thing but I can deal with it in light of this change.
