Dev's:

I am finding it very difficult not to create a huge rant over this. Angry *takes a deep breath* Sleepy I am very frustrated when I level down anything because if I experience a little lag in the refresh, I end up demolishing the top thing on the menu.  I just demolished a level 20 building on my alt.  I had no intention of doing this - and once it is is the que I can only suck it up because there is no "oh, sh** - UNDO" button.  Cry

My recommendation:  Create a blank selection that acts as the default until an actual building is selected. 

When I am power de-leveling with prestige (cause I just want the building gone) it reverts back to the very top one after every refresh - and more times than I care to count, I have de-leveled the top building (usually a level 20 barracks). 

If you are willing to re-establish that lost level, please send me a private message (as I dont wish to broadcast which building or city)

Enough reasonably intelligent people have reported making this error that it is clear that it's a problem in the interface.  I haven't demo'd a building yet, and I'm not looking forward to doing so.  I've heard too many "I just lost my level 20 barracks" horror stories.

I thought it was part of Illyriad's right of passage.  (hazing as it were)  :)

That does seem a bit horrifying. Accidentally de-leveling a barracks just because it's in alphabetical order? Until they fix that (or even if they don't fix that) people should be warned.
