Different Reasons to Drop Land in 3.0
« on: July 02, 2013, 08:39:29 PM »

A question popped up in the help forum so I wanted to enumerate all of the reasons that I've dropped land.

1. Drop land at the end of the run to improve your defensive ratio and protect you from leader attacks. If you ran on a 20 leader/land ratio all game and aren't holding a ton of NW, this will really help to protect your warlord.
2. Drop land at the end of the run to 'lock' your land. If you can put up a decent defense, people won't want to attack you if you only have a moderate amount of land. But if you have a ton of land and a decent defense people will suffer through needing to keep a large army while they attack you. By the time they are done, lots of your army will have died, and you will be an easier target. Last round once I started dropping to 20-30k land every run and setting up a moderate defense, I almost never got attacked. It allowed me to keep all of my leaders every run, so I never had to make more leaders.
3. If you want to increase the land spread and make it harder for your opponents to gather lots of land. You get more land per attack if the person you are attacking has lots of land. But if you and the land farm have equal amounts of land, then whoever runs after you will have to spend about twice as many turns to get to the same amount of land, and they might need to keep an army for longer so it hurts them.
4. You want your clanmate to have access to the land. Your clanmantes can't attack you but they can attack the land farm. So you give the land to the land farm and now your clanmates can use all the land you made to accelerate themselves.

So I understand the part about having a clan mate attack you to get land... But how do you give land to the land farm? Maybe I've just missed that button

Any time you drop land, it goes to the land farm.

It's an option under demolish buildings, which is an option under construct.

6. Drop land in the middle of your run to improve leader ratio against other players for offensive missions.

  • Uiblis: you just kind of fritter away turns until someone teaches you some basic strategies, but I want that to lead to more interactive, emergent gameplay

  • JesterAverageJoe: I know this has been something a number of very intelligent, & exceedingly perceptive developers have been trying to figure out for years. Makes me wish there wasn't so much bad blood between the different communities & circles, so that maybe a mature discussion could be shared~

  • windhound: One of the coolest thing about RWL in the beginning was there was no meta.
    March 31, 2021, 06:24:12 PM
  • windhound: Everyone was sorta flailing around, so it didn't take much to be average at the game when most everyone was terrible at it.

  • windhound: Now it's basically like joining a CS or Halo server that's been up for years, those left playing have super optimized strats and it's tougher to just jump in.

  • JesterAverageJoe: in a way, I feel like one of the only ways to marry the Prom functions w/ mobile interfaces would be to have some 3rd party/intermediary java program... Certainly not ideal where entry is concerned~

    March 31, 2021, 09:22:30 PM
  • Uiblis: never liked the ui, it was messy af and didnt distill the important info out
    March 31, 2021, 09:22:55 PM
  • Uiblis: been writing a lot of rust recently so might give that a shot for the backend
