i think the new system (kingdoms) is good so far
but it needs more things :-
1. the auctions is suck because if you can't charge gold you will never get silver from your hero inventory of course you stop the silver pushing, but also you forget about that who do not charge gold (its not make any sense to sell book of wisdom with 100 silver and buy it with more than 1 thousand silver)
2. the resource for level up the embassy is too high it must be lower than now.
3. the tributes is low because the king is need to focus in 2 things population and army the tributes must be like 30% at least.
4. the victory points must not start producing from the first day, it should be later let say month later on usual speed server.
these are the important points rite now in my opinion
the developing team must improve this point
i welcome every one want to discuss this points with me
