After a first test of the harvesting system, it seems to me that the whole process is a really laborious process. Dead

I would suggest to be able adding gatherers to armies.
Most player are occupying rare material spots anyway.
That would make sense to skin the animals/creature just after the attack. 

Permanent occupation spoils gathering imo. perhaps some critters or faction army could liberate non sovereignty-claimed squares.

I personnally don't like farming like that. You could probably make some money by automatizing some gathering elements.

People are already paying to win by prestiging harvesters to distant locations.  I think the option to prestige gatherers should be removed.  It defeats the purpose of localized resources when people can pay to instantly gather anywhere on the map.

Agree to that.

I actually don't mine the prestiging harvesters across the map. I think some players were dealt a bad hand in the rare mineral department and this is their only hope of harvesting any. 

Also it requires prestige, and I am all for players spending prestige to further the game, so long as it doesn't create an imbalance. Harvester bumping doesn't seem like an imbalance to me, considering the cost (prestige) to do it across the map.

I have zero problems with players being able to pay prestige to send gatherers all the way across the map.  It really doesn't give them that much of an edge and helps support the devs.  Hell I hope people do it more often.  

Just like, i like the medals because I won't use them but other ppl will support the devs by making them.

When they come up with, insta siege by paying 100 prestige then I will have a problem with pay to win.

Cool revive the old thread.

Devs have to get paid somehow correct?  and prestige is thus far the only way i know they are getting paid.  So if someone wants to pay a dollar so he can sprint his harvesters across the map so he harvest something that he could have just bought anyway.  Than all the power to him.  Oh and lets not forget the fact that he can still get bumped and then it was all for naught. 

When the devs have something that says pay 1k prestige and you and insta-siege an enemy city.  Then I will start worrying about it.

You're talking to a spambot.  It can't actually compose thoughts, you'll notice it just parrots previous posts.  
Anyway, I expect some Holy Champion will be along shortly to put this abomination back in the ground where it belongs.
