[SIZE=3]UPDATE: The discussion event is over! Thanks to everyone who participated for giving us their feedback![/SIZE]
Combat is a part of all of our lives in Atlantis, whether against the Anthropus or fellow players. It’s a lot of fun and a huge part of the game to go on the march and attack other player-controlled or computer-controlled forces. The less glamorous part of combat is something that is often fiercely debated on these forums: defending. Since troops in your cities can be set to hide or defend through the Wall, the question of whether or not to actually defend when being attacked is a significant one.
The release of the Wraith Dragon has brought up the question of defending vs. hiding anew, and we at Atlantean headquarters are interested in the way all of you think about defending - when you do it, why you do it, and how the Wraith Dragon has changed the mechanic for you (if at all). So, we’re having this moderated discussion today to see what everyone thinks, and we encourage you all to participate so that the DoA team can get the most complete picture possible of defending in the game.
[SIZE=4]Questions We Want To Hear Your Answer To:[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]- In which cases would you defend against an attack? Why?
- In which cases would you hide your troops and not defend? Why?
- Is defending (or not defending) against the Wraith Dragon different from normal defending? Why?[/SIZE]
