Vex Population 1228

Wanderer32 Population 402

You outnumber your opponent 3 to 1. In my opinion your opponent was at a huge disadvantage already and was unlikely to ever be able to out equip you. His only recourse was employing outside "trackers"

To me, there is too much disparity in your pop size. If this mechanic were to ever change, there needs to be something that the "disadvantaged" player can employ to level the playing field.

considering how difficult it is, and how much coordination is required to actually track a diplo back to it's source, I would say that this feature works perfectly as it is now. It rewards patience and < ="utf-8">cooperation.

not to mention that someon would have to be on and tracking at all times over a period that could well strech a week. now that's a BIG investment of energy for a diplo attack

The subject is now moot. The changes on the map now prevent tracking of diplos anyway.

This would hopefully be never implemented. Reinforcements when your defending troops cannot die is a huge imbalance. With the update, it is good the way it currently is.

Except for the newer people who will now be unable to defend themselves at all from thieving by larger players with loads of thieves/other diplos whho like th hit newbies Just Because they can (there will always be ppl like this) and this update now basically removes the risk element to this action completely. I estimate tht the rate of new players quitting the game will increase by 50% because of this, while it might also cause newer players not to leave the game as quickly.

Are you unable to track diplomats back now?  Just verifying in case i need to bulk up on basic diplos ;)
Patience is a virtue, resource giving is a sin
