The changes they will do in the next test server are overall a great news, new VP mechanics, new WW bonus VP, new kingdoms. It will force people to either fight all the time or they won't have a chance to win.
After a year they finally take some step forward with the requests we have made
Attacking is not all about making farms.. and I don't know where you have been but TK has been all about being huge alliances with servers ending with 1 meta vs another which is super boring. We are finally getting a few servers where people play for winning on their own and it's a lot more fun (COM4 / COM5). If TK alliances don't make everyone feel part of the group is not TK fault, but of the king/leaders of your kingdom and alliance.
The 4k treasury isn't that bad, it gives less importance to treasuries and more to other villages and with the new VP mechanics even more. To be honest it's not a problem at all, in the last servers we had kings with more treasuries than when the treasuries held 10k. And no it's not pointless to go after treasuries lol.
The oasis thing made it too easy to have extra large kingdoms too easily, territories are smaller which means governors and kings must work together to have the maximize the kingdom expansion.
