Hi guys and gals! We were really disappointed in suspending the best raid competition, it required minimal effort yet had minimal participation. This is a game based on raiding players, only makes sense to have this as a rewarding competition here. So... what if we keep but modify... the new competition would still be best raid but we pick the opponent. There would be more than one defender of the month so that most power levels can participate. For example, month 1 the defenders would be Betty, Aurora and Betty B. Interested players would notify staff to particiapte. An attack card would be sent to the player with one of the 3 names on it, the name would be based on the attacker level. The raid must be completed against a guarded base and video uploaded (obviously). The attack card would have a 72hr time-limit. I'm thinking to keep as a one-time issued card, like we have in tournaments. I would be ok allowing a player join mafia to challenge for "practice" with maximum number of attempts, maybe 3? However this isn't an option in multiplayer, war or showdown so I'm not sure since so many only look for ways to cheat, if this should be allowed. The defenders would be chosen by forum staff, we would consider volunteers. Player would be contacted in-game and if he/she agrees would be named a defender for that month. Since activity here is minimal currently, having 3 defenders may be a little much but we can try. The lowest power base will be around 10k, have a mid range at 20-25k and the last no max. The hard part comes to judging, this part is still being decided. I've thought 1. we all vote including staff, 2. have only members vote, or 3. leaving the winners to be selected only by staff.. Prizes are still to be determined. We can't award 3 cards in addition to gold. We could possibly do 1 card and use a random prize generator to determine which of the 3 winners would be awarded the surprise card. The defenders would be volunteers and would lose any resources lost during the attack, and gain any skulls awarded during raid. We can suggest a small consulatation prize for donating base and cooperating with forums, no guarantee this can be awarded. This is just a rough draft, we'd like to hear your thoughts before making a final decision. If you like the suggested changes as is, or want to add more detail please share your comments below. I'm hoping having the community involved will increase the activity in the actual competetion. Respect any ideas that are posted, this does not guarantee it will be implemented but it is possible. We will review comments in about a week and make a decision. Keep comments here related to this topic. We have more things planned, this is only the beginning. Encourage players to join here so we grow and more opportunities open for the community. I will only invest my time in creating this ... IF YOU agree to play fairly and we have positive responses here concerning the adjustments.. this thread is a discussion there are no prizes to be awarded. Thanks for reading!
