Gentlement Agreement Tile Swapping

In the past days, there was a lot of discussions about tile swapping and i believe those discussions are also necessary. Since you can gain a lot of FP just through organization and without fighting for it.

We can either wait till the dev find a fix for it, or stop it voluntary. If the majority of conquest active factions participate, we would stopping tile swap for FP.

I suggest a start date, in 3 days so that other faction have time to discuss if they like to be part of it … Or can give back tiles they owe another factions.

Participating Factions:
Tyrants Club
Dragons
Italians
Germans
Mom
XCom
Prex
ZeroPhobia

Since tile-swapping was a necessity (=other factions were doing it), but we don’t like it…
Italian agree.

Why was tile swapping necessary in the first place?

Just because someone exploited loophole means everyone must do the same?

hang loss on tile thing got exposed and made “legit” by dev → everyone does it

tile trading got exposed → everyone does it

Said this more then a month ago, and going to say it again. Until the Dev go about fixing fake “war”, conquest will be a big joke.

I think its very interesting, but how would a level 5 faction move out when it hits level 6?

I would envision that the tiles would be held but no new tiles in that ‘old’ level area would be able to be captured or recaptured.

Over time there would be a natural wastage either through the abandon tile feature (maybe 1 tile is forced to be abandoned in the old area per day) or through the faction gaining new tiles and needing to defend.

Good question though, I hadnt fully worked out how the transition would work in my mind, but I think a forced abandon of 1 tile per day in the old area would work…

Forcing players to fight among themselves within a pre determined “border” is never going to work, or at the most, work to the extend of how you define it(in other words, everyone is just going to have a nap aka non aggressive pact.)

Yes that is what will happen within every layer of that box. Everyone are in the same ship and since everyone almost have similar firepower, by human nature, the best way out of it is to divide the borders equally so everyone can just sit back and enjoy without fighting it out.

What you need is incentive for fighting someone on par with your faction and not bottom feed. Something like faction war where declaring someone near your range yield more points earn if you win(right now it is just trading of a SINGLE tile regardless of strength, thus all the bullying)

Intrinsic vs. extrinsic morality:

Compare and contrast jay-walking with pre-meditated murder motivated by superfluous resource accessibility.

Hint: Regulatory prohibitions are generally not an issue of morality.

Yeah that probably made more sense in your head.

Add PREX to the list, we have never tile swapped and never will (except to change tile ownership permanently).
