Sub Accounts - At A Disadvantage For Not Being Able To Attack.

Just a suggestion, as currently sub accounts cannot attack other players, but can still be attacked and destroyed by other players, this is at a disadvantage so i propose the following:

1) Sub accounts are not allowed to be attacked by other players.
2) Bring back the option where it is at the owners discretion to allow the sub player to attack other players

Thanks

Gez.

    If subs cant be attacked - neither could POI's, shield hubs or the fortress. Alliances would simply power level alt accounts to hold center anything they didn't want to lose. The solution is to allow subs to attack, not making them invulnerable.
  • To an extent yes, but not fully, the game already kills players being inactive after so many months, a similar procedure can be put in for sub accounts if they are not allowed to be attacked.

    Any changes to subs will be exploited. Originally there was to be time limit on the time subs could be given, but that system hasn't worked as long as I've been playing.

    A simpler system to stop it being abused as it is now would be to limit it to 30 days total in once year.

  • That is all well and good, but how does it fix the problem of a sub account being killed, without the option of fighting back, they are just sitting ducks at the moment.

    As the sub will be part of an alliance, it is up to the alliance to retaliate. In a well run alliance the CiC knows who is away and has issued a sub, and to who that has been issued so will be able to organise a counter strike.

    No player in an alliance should be a sitting duck as that is why alliances exist, mutual benefit.

    The solution is already in front of you, build the account defenses.
