    New feature suggestion - Test your own defenses

    It would be really neat if you could run test attacks on your city to test your defenses.
    Have something that will allow you to pick troops you want to test with and attack your city. This wouldn't use any resources or general energy. This could be both entertaining while you are waiting for troops to build or for buildings to finish. Sometimes I find my self with nothing to do in the game because all my builders are working and if i collect resources then I will just open my self to attacks. Having a way to test my defenses would be a neat feature to play with.

    Thank you for your suggestion.
    We will discuss it to see if we can make some corresponding adjustments to make it more competitive. Thanks again for your attention.

    Thank you. We can't promise anything unless it is done.

    umm.. testing defense, wouldn't that be what the invasion thingy is for? I think that needs to be extended so we can keep using it to test defense.. and on top of that make it so we can use our generals on defense they way we can for invasion, provided we are on when we have incoming of course lol

    Well the defense you setup for invasion is completely different than it is for PVP. The invasion can teach you the capabilities of each unit on offence and defense but not how to design your city for the best defense. if you could simulate an attack on your city that would be great.

    A nice feature would also be, Being able to save 3 different defence setups. So you can change it at the click of a button. When online you could choose one of your setups when being attacked. Or for when offline you select a default.

    With this feature it could also allow you the chance to vary ur city set at the click of a button in the situation where you get hit constantly. at the moment if you got a few ppl hitting you,there is no chance to change your defence without them hittin you with your city all over the place. Maybe with this your cities influence could raise then if someone cant beat you more than 50% or get your town hall. Just ideas to stop people getting ported out too easily. Maybe even the same situation as in age 2 evony. Where you can drop loyalty down to a certain level but then require a certain time period before loyalty can be dropped any further.

    u really think its too easy to port ppl?? get real, its not that easy and doesn't need to be made any more difficult.. I think all u are whiners that must play nothing but defense all the time and these suggestions will ruin the game cuz the point is to attack each other, so go try some attacking and see that making that harder will be no fun at all.. with that said, the only thing I would like to see (for defense) is to allow us to use general's magic like we can on invasion.. and to that comment about 'needing' to change defense layout u must be crazy cuz I kept it the same for invasion and defense in pvp.. the fact is there are many different combinations and some might be more effective in certain situations, but really u can't win every time cuz some ppl are just bigger than u or have attack skills better than most.. so before u all make any more stupid suggestions how about trying to look at things from all perspectives!?!?!?!

    wow,sorry no1 please comment on this again lol. You end up getting abused. It is simple to port ppl if ur guild works as a team. Very simple. its the way a game is and always will be.some will progress faster than others and have higher ability and skill, same rule with basic life aswell for that matter. You shouldnt peanalise players who progress futher or quicker. sorry you dont have the ability to port anyone

    humm...I never said you needed to change it. but the best defense for invasion is vastly difference than the best defense i have found for PVP. If you don't alter it for invasion and PVP then you will not make it through invasion very quickly or you will not do well in matches. Yea if you want to take longer for invasion you can keep it set up for PVP, you will just miss out on the bonus res for doing the invasion quickly...
    on a side note you seem very hostile in your post, are you having a bad day?

    That's more about each persons play style & method of building up. Others could argue that going through the invasions too quickly is a waste of resources when a player can get higher amounts from farming others around them. Then continuing the invasions as more resources are needed. I agree that you don't need 2 different city designs for invasions & PvP, while still being able to get through the invasions fast. Using a different design for invasions is just inviting other players to farm your city since your making it so much easier to be attacked.
