    Sorry I didn't understand, I'm not talking about multiplayer but more villages used by the same player. also because those who use multiplayer should be banned! or not?

    What I think the person above your comment says is that when people won't be able to use multi accounts, he thinks that your idea might be possible to think about.

    Sounds suspicious but can surely just be a person farming greys with 1-2 TT's or whatever horses he uses. It's absolutely possible even though he should be very carefull and lucky to achieve that.

    Other option is that he is building a WW hammer so he really is being carefull and lets other player clean farms for him, and then farms them.

    And as you said, might as well be cheating. No one can fully confirm that, sadly, besides the guy himself.

    You break rules in forum - you get banned 7 days - 1 month.
    You break rules in game - you get banned for few hours and lose 10% buildings.

    Maybe just apply forum ban lenght to the game? first offence - 7 days, 2nd offence - 1 month.

    This sounds like you guys are really bitter over Multis cheating.

    You need to be able to 100% prove that people are breaking rules in game, which is pretty impossible. Forum rules shouldn't be a real thing, they're just here so community managers or whatever they're called will be able to silence us by censuring comments/screenshots etc. In no way should forum offences effect your account in game, even if you punish forum rule breaking.

    You really exaggearate the farmers 'suffering'.

    Active gameplay is another exaggeration, because sending farm lists isn't active. One might say that adding grey's to his farm list and destroying their residence/palace & wall is hard, but I dissagree because it's not. It's spending less than an hour a day on that if you know what you're doing.

    Basically, what ya'll say is: "give us some bots to farm with infinite resources in them and no troops or walls or whatever". You don't want to be active and scout without farming because then it won't be lucrative enough for you.

    Anyways, I really don't understand what the point of bringing back the deff points for defending a grey village is; People will get medals for spiking, and I assure you that you won't be able to destroy all of the deff players spiking your greys. It doesn't matter how many people farm (the number, by the way, is less than 10% of players in most servers), or how many people spike, or any of those things. You don't have solution for your problem with spiking, and I don't think there is a solution.

    Lastly, I would like to mention that most top robbers when I played in 2020, in multiple servers were people using bots. People using bots don't really suffer from spiking since they can make their farm list delete red/yellow swords from it, and not send it again, so i recommend farmers just do their thing, deal with their losses and stop complaining. You had it too easy for way too long, you shouldn't mind some troops dying on you.

    Please, don't be lazy with this things, sending a ticket to the help center can be done from inside the game world and it is quick.

    If we believe someone is using any type of bot or script we must act, it is imperative for the good of the game.

    off topic question: will you ban someone who admits using multi accounts on the forum?

    It's more than the 'afk click' farm you said earlier on.

    If people want to spike they can spike. I'm not complaining about that. They should just be known so you can do something about it. Why in a strategy game can I not take out a spikers barracks/stable to stop them from spiking? Sometimes you can figure it out without the def points, but I don't see why we are making it easier for them to hide. Sure a lot of spikers are throw away accounts and they don't care, but at least it may stop them from this server.

    Someone earlier said that without spikers tuets would just club spam everyone. Spiking encourages that because they are hurt the least form it (Clubs are very cheap) and Rome/Gaul farmers are hurt more losing TT/EI

    You're right about the last statement. Teutons don't really care about losing a few clubs.

    I think the reason that deff points were removed from deffending an inactive village because people thought it was unfair people were getting deff points by being 'cowards' as the OP described it, and getting top 10 defender medals while not deserving them

    This is where your wrong. If it's so easy why don't you do it instead of spiking?

    First you have to add the villages.You might have to scout and clear it if no one else has. Then you have to figure out how many troops to send to be optimal, and if it's worth any losses you might get due to residence/palace. Then you have to decide if it's wroth it to destroy the residence/palace if your losing troops (Which you may need to scout first to find out which one it is, so you don't destroy a warehouse or resource fields). Sure you can select every village and send 5 troops to each, but it's possible to end up with more losses than gains. Granted later on in a server it becomes less of an issue, early on it's important.

    I'm doing it, first of all.

    I think its obvious we are talking about mid to late game. I haven't seen people spike greys in then first 10 days of the server because no one has troops to spare.

    Scouting, Destroying wall & palace/residence isn't that hard. All top farmers do it and its not too hard.

    Most (if not all) top farmers in 2020 (before the free bot creator shut it down) used bot for farming. It had a mass scouting option. It made life much easier for people. Now that it's gone, things need to be done manually. Yeah, it's hard, but I promise you top farmers can continue doing their thing without going crazy about spikers.

    So basically, if you want to maximize your farming gains, you need to consider the fact that people spike. Makes you mad? Stop farming, because people aren't going to stop spiking.

    Why would you punish active play with inactive play?

    This is where you're wrong.

    Farming grey's isn't being active. It's clicking a button every 5, 10, 20, 30 or 60 minutes to send 100 attack. That's not being active. Being active is scouting villages before attacking them. You are more than welcome to scout all the grey's before attacking them, now that would be active.

    Very well said. Agree with all your points.
