So i'm not a regular player I play 1 server a year when I have the time and i'm use to play as off teuton so clearing robbers is pretty easy and seems fair, this year I decided to join 2 servers, one of them is a speed server where I'm testing def style and clearing robbers becomes a tad unfair as either you have to invest in some small number of off units to clear them or wait for them to attack you first which takes a long time and therefor taking a long time to respawn which brings me to my suggestion: what if there was a button "provoke" on the robbers UI which will make the robbers attack you right away then you can clear them afterwards.
Why? this will make robbers faster (still slower than off style cause you have to wait for robbers to attack you first) to clear for def players and thus more fair imo
Would it be too op? maybe, cause in this scenario the player would benefit from wall/water ditch bonus which is greater than siege bonus so maybe when clicking on "provoke" the robber hideout's troop number increase depending on the def bonus you have (or depending on smtg else) or simply the bonus isn't taken into account when robbers are attacking (hello bugs my old friend)
Would gauls be too op? cause of trapper maybe idk how everyone would see this but it's still a good point , the solution could be robber's troops are "untrappable" (I've come to talk with you again) or not cause to use traps you have to actually be gaul and you should be able to use traps.
So what do you think abt this idea? is it worth debating around? is it legit? if yes can it be improved? or am I wrong to think def style needs a buff regarding robbers?
