  • Alliance building assistance / help

    Last year a lot of worlds were merged.

    In our old worlds we had the possibility to help players building their cities.
    When people build something they could click at a button to ask for help. If someone helped the building time was reduced with 1 minute or 1%. This was a nice way to help new players and players that just opened a new city.

    Just after the merge we asked a lot of time when they would activate this functionality at the new worlds.
    Untill today we don't have this feature, but we all know it is still in the game.

    Nowadays we have Ganstack. The most famous kabam-mod ever!
    Maybe you can help us again?

    Hi guys,

    thanks for the compliments but remember that flattery won`t get you anywhere with me :-)

    I`m not aware of the specifics on this topic only that the feature itself didn't work as intended (maybe some possible exploit of some sort?).
    In any case the feature was dropped and focus was put on other alliance features such as Grail Wars.

    That said we are always looking into ways of increasing cooperation between players in-game as well as on our various community platforms.
    So if you have any suggestions, please feel free to share.

      Thanks for reopening. It's quite strange that nobody had the courtesy to tell us this before. Thats the problem we had with kabam: nobdy reacted to our question. I really asked the question quite a lot.

      About the alliance help feature: What did the feature do:
      You were building your castle by example, it takes 10 minutes to build. You had 10 helpers and everytime you get 1 minute speedup and thus the castle was build very quickly. For the oldlevel >50 players a useless feature. They don't have anything to build. Or building time is much higher then 10 minutes. But for starters it was a way to give them a fast start in the game. I never noticed a lot of exploits with it, and I really don't see the exploits.

      The only thing that can be said is that the feature wasn't needed by the advanced players. Maybe that was something that could be improved. By example by reducing training times when people asked for help.
      Another improvement of the original functionality is to dont let the help requests being shown in the alliance chat.
      I play some other games. The alliance help is maintained in the embassy. So every time someone askes for help you can get a hand above your embassy: Click at it and all open requests are helped by you.
      In this game you can also speed up every building that takes <5 minutes. In that game you can help alliance members depending at the level of you embassy.
      At the start of the game you only get 2 helpers, but after your empassy gets higher, more players can help. That way reducing the building and research time. Quite handy and a real benefit of being in an active alliance.

      So maybe you can ask the developers to re-enble it. and as improvements for the feature:

      - Move the help from Alliance Chat to Embassy
      - Let the number of helpers be depending on the level of the embassy in the city
      - Let people ask for help to reduce training times

      I'll ask feedback to my fellow leaders from Ector123. Maybe someone else have some other improvements.

        i think u can set a limit on how many times a player can help others' to speed up, and put a level requirement on using this function, for example u need to be at least lv15 to help others speed up

          Hi guys,

          thanks for the suggestions, I`ll forward them.
          That said, as stated previously the focus was shifted towards other player cooperation features so this might not see the light.
          But good suggestions and constructive feedback, so very helpful!
