I heard this objection countless times. Many players need a long break between wars but others don’t want that at all. It’s a split.
IMHO, the new war modes are more war variations than “true” modes.
I would like to see true real-time PvP modes during long breaks between wars.
Truel (duel among 3 opponents):
2vs2 (2-player teams):
My next suggestion is very ambitious… Something that may take over a year to develop… Maybe Olympus Rising version 6.0 or 7.0. ?
I would like to see battles on water! Other than the Odyssey there was the Argonautica (Jason and the Argonauts). There were also some epic Greek naval battles like the Battle of Salamis, the Battle of Aegospotami, the Battle of Arginusae, the Battle of Artemisium, the Battle of Mycale…
A few examples of Tower Defense games on water:
Viking Invasion TD:
Pirate Legends TD:
Naval Storm TD:
Maybe the devs could implement new resources like Wood and Metal to build the ships? Why not use the extra Dominance as another resource as well? The Ithacan Harbor could be expanded for battlefield purpose.
I really think those new modes would make the game more complete, less repetitive and funner.
