No way…bad bad idea
Hello friend, why is a bad idea a break during the conquest? At least for leaders and generals it is quite difficult to be online and sometimes you go to sleep for a few hours and it is a disaster when you return.
OK, lets suppose it’s implemented 12 hours will always be unfair for a part of the globe, so it must be >12h. Aha and here we go again… What is stopping you to go to sleep? I feel that conquest is less and less action packed, less fight and even less since soldier restriction, (i’am still not happy but well). This pause concept will push all event back by at least 5 days, conquest will last for 10 days then, rewards will take mush more time to get. Also we will have less events and rewards per month, i don’t like this. Outside of events i have the feeling there is less to do in the game, like every player is dull, just my feeling? Many want quick rewards in this game, me too:)
This is a bad idea simply because alliances are not in the same time zones. Suppose, for example, you have 4 alliances all in the US…a 12 hour break would definitely work out well for them. BUT if 2 of the 4 alliances were in Asia and 2 were in Eastern US (maybe poor example, but just say opposite sides of the world for time zones), when the 12 hour break took place, 2 alliances would be able to get a lot of stuff done and 2 would not, depending on which time zones were “shut down” during the break. (And a rotating 12 hour break is too much to ask as well since what would happen when players are in the middle of a battle since we all know what happens when the servers lose connection during battles…skulls lost, XP lost, medals lost, food lost, etc…so nope, rotating breaks aren’t the solution either.)
Since no one has ever been literally tied to their computer/phone/tablet during conquest, and no one is a solitary member of leadership (meaning there are more than just the leader or a solitary general), there is nothing stopping anyone from taking a break from the game. Also noted, the game will shut you out for a period of time if you remain constantly online for more than 3 hours (forgive me if I have forgotten exactly just how long, but I believe it’s 3 hrs 15 mins, could be wrong, though).
So common sense should prevail, no 12-hour mandatory break in conquest, please. Just shut the game off, get some rest, let your brain reset, and then you can think clearer with better strategy when you return to the game.
