    Empire PvP wars

    This is going to be hard to explain but il do my best.

    I suggest if 5 members hit another 5 members who belong to another empire. It will start an empire pvp war.

    This means both empires have quick links in the empire chats to the other empire.

    And also all money stolen from your empire and all the money stolen from there empire players would be clear to see.

    First empire to 1 billion in total would end the PvP war and they would win. Only way to end the EvE PvP war early is if both leaders click a truss options in the empire section.


    Not sure if I've explained this good enough any questions please ask!

    Great idea, however for a truce to really be successful you'd have to have people listen to the leader, a lot don't.

    Yes but the truce would remove the quick links from the empire chat and stop the farm count for both empires. You could also have a cool down of 24 hours. So even if players keep hitting and PvP war wouldn't initiate until the cooldown run out.

    You could also have a system where you cannot win any xp, bp or money from the members of the opposing empire for 24-48 hours after a truce has been agreed too but if a member of empire A hits a member of empire B during that period (even if it was only a 1 stam hit) then that member of empire B gets 1 retaliation attack against a member of their choosing in empire A where they can get xp, bp and money as normal.

    Possibly something the devs could look in to.

    Re: Empire PvP wars

    i think this is a really interesting idea really. As an empire leader i typically do not get involved as i would usually end up being the person someone is going to come to. That, and i'm not a big PvP fan anyway, rather do bosses.

    This is something that happens in the game ALL the time anyway. I feel something along the lines of Trapp's suggestion would be a good way to capitalize on it and make it more fun for everyone involved. It also makes a feud between two empires mean something.

    As a side note, i think that once a war is started that there is criteria for who you can hit. I think that if the offensive or defensive power is too great a difference that the system does not allow somoene to attack. It could something like a level to power ratio, i'd hate to see something like this be promoted and the sub level 500 players get throttled because they are being farmed by at 1500+

    Have given it more thoughts and, we actually do have a quick link function to the top Aggressive accounts against our empire. Also everyone attacking your empire will appear on the feed. I believe this is enough already.

    Lets say if they modified it with some regulation that prevent empires from exploiting it - and give some kind of reward for empires that winning the war (once a day/week/3 days or whatever) - and oh, faeming the same player over and over again does not gives you point )

    Could be fun though

    I don't think there's anything wrong with Farming, it's the game. Wether you attack a player because of money, points, or just random anger, it's your game to play and your stamina to spend. I smile when I see level 200 with a BR24 complaining about being hit by bigger toons. I have a level 800 BR7 and very rarely get hit.
    if one wants a high and shiny BR, one has to accept the consequences.

    Ya got me all wrong, if one resort to farming its their choice - i won't be commenting on that. What i mean in farming in my previous statement was related to empire PvP wars op originally presented, if dev modified it with rewards - there should be some restriction to forbide any exploitation of the war itself and how to win the war (1 billion points like OP suggested for example).

    Nah, keep farming mechanics on - just negates the point from repeated executions to one player in short period (20 mins?) done by the same guy when the empire wars on. Outside of that its free for all.

    What about during the battle everyone becomes lv1 with 1 stat but have their LT powers ... that also makes the game more depend on the types of LT you have and their powers...

    Along these lines, you could make an empire event, start it on the 1st, and record battle points earned by empires. Like we track boss points. Except have actual rewards for top 100 empires.

    Other ideas to spice up empire v empire would be grudge match where a leader can send EvE challenge to another empire. Have a rematch option for close wars. Seems like rematches only happen for the blow outs- in the past I have seen the same empires battle 3 out of 5 wars and none of them close.
