One of the things I liked when I joined Illy was how open the developers were to new ideas and player feedback. Perhaps the days when the devs would regularly talk with players will never return, but what harm is there in talking about what we'd like.

Yes, play Illy the way it is today, but why not dream about what it COULD be?

It's soul crushing for n00bs to build all the way to 20, only to rip it apart when they move. That pain is compounded by the terrible community advice that new players should save their teleport like some precious treasure. 95% of them will never need a terraformed city. All these factors combine to delay players from moving to their chosen alliance areas for 1-2 weeks. If it's a social game, it should be much easier to accomplish joining your comrades.

This sounds great. Maybe level 15 so a small penalty applies

I do believe new players should have a quick start to game, that combined with a stop to sitting old inactive accounts would bring more balance to the game. These are obvious things that need corrected for the sake of the game and yet no one, other than Tink, has complained about sit accounts.Perhaps to many here are using them.

White Willow, you will find that even if devs tighten up the rules for inactive accounts this will not make the "permasats" go away. The 500 pound gorilla in the room is password sharing. All illy vets know that. But dealing with the real multiaccounting is not only more challenging because of the sleuth work involved but risky because some of these players also pay money for prestige. Much less risky to address the new player influx/retention issue.

Wait a min! Did I hear that right! Someone is gifting 1Mil saddle armor and stuff! What! Shocked
I been playing this freakin game for ages nobody sent me stuff like that Unhappy

* starts trashing his room in disappointment * Wacko

BTW I played for 2+ yrs before joining any alliance... Alliance become necessary when you want to participate in tourneys or need insurance policy... But you can do without them and there are players who are doing it still.

Tink I won't give up on the sitter abuse and they can easily restrict use with no troop or van movement while sitting.

I find the poll results interesting. Not the suggestions, but the mentality. Zero people said that the community should focus more effort on creating community content within the sandbox.
Check out my blog, Warmongering in Illyriad for self-defense techniques, military city construction, and PvP strategies.
