Short-version: I think we should be able to see upgrades, alliance info, and next conquest rewards/time from within the Stronghold map, rather than having to be on the main map to see them.
So, this is our Stronghold map right now:
Doesn’t it seem a bit uninformative and plain? To view when the next conquest is, or the name of the conquest battle, or any rewards and standings in the conquest, I need to exit our Stronghold and view it from the main map. It seems a bit unproductive and counter-intuitive to have the info on another screen other than the one it pertains to. What about facility upgrades in the stronghold? I have to manually check them -inside- the stronghold map. It’s just that all the indicators are scattered or non-existent, and pretty disorganized. I’m sure the conquest mode will be enjoyable, but some aspects are pretty rough.
Think of the ninja event, or the pro-league, and even the dungeon. You can view everything you need to know from within that event location without having to leave it. Why should it be any different from those modes? Even dungeon exploration has its upgrades featured in the upgrades panel.
I understand these things are easier said than done, but it’s an important quality of life update that I think we can all benefit from to improve the quality of the Stronghold map. Maybe Flaregames knows this and was just focused on getting the functionality of the mode working first. Regardless, I think this would really make the new mode more put-together.
