Hello everyone and thanks for reading. Fair warning : this is a complex idea and has a lot to read. The idea The idea i would like to propose centers around the ability to change builds at will without the need to demolish a building. Currently an abyss lvl 10 building will cost you a total of 3.490 trillion gold . If we want to build another lvl 10 building to replace it the math is the following. demoing it will give you 698 bil back so basically you lost 2.792 trillion per building 2.792 tril plus 3.490 for a full new lvl10 is basically 6.282 trillion total for each building you demoed and decided to rebuild. This is a nice little gold sink. But it only works if the player decides to change build which in my opinion at abyss level its hardly the case. Players at this stage are basically building what they want and sticking with it. Most players that build will stick to it because the cost to rebuild fully is too much. Think about how and where you are right now building your kingdom. Would you demo and rebuild to accommodate your needs easily? Or would it take weeks if not months depending the player to do so? If in the long run a player changes their mind they know each new building would have a total cost of 6.3 trillion. And to you player i ask you. Would you do that? Change builds once you build complete at that cost? Lowlands right this moment are a perfect example of how players change builds according to needs. Depending of which clans they are or what the wc needs. You sometimes are in a position where you need to change builds for the good of the match and roster. Why wont most have problems with this? The gold needed to build a ll is 13.5 bil with a return of 2.7 bil per demo. You basically need 10.8 bil per change and in total its costing you 24.2 bil a building swap And why do we do it with ease? The cost in reality is not that hard to obtain. And yet we have change ll builds more times than you would dare vs swapping a abyss lvl10 building. What am i trying to do here is basically to try and convince you on my idea for building swaps. I would like to make a better way for you to build your desired builds and in case you messed up and now wish to change, you'll be able to do it. How? Different proposals. Feel free to add yours in comments 1) Should a player have a building at lvl10 and desires to change the building the player can swap it. The upgrade button is already grayed out and useless on a maxed building. Change it to a swap option. A lvl 10 for a lvl 10 no gold sink/cost Or- swapping a lvl 10 building can come at a cost. Not 2.8 trillion since that would be the same as rebuilding minus the refund of the demoed building 2) Since the need for a gold sink is needed and thats why it costs so much to rebuild lets have a castle lvl4 for this. A massive 1 time gold sink that will unlock this feature for that land set Lets be fair on this. A full 25 abyss build complete will cost you 87.250 trillion.( never counting land costs) Rebuilding it will cost you 70 trillion. I would prefer having a great gold sink for lvl 4 castle and allow this feature to unlock, the cost though id like to leave open to discussion. Since right now we have only 4 lands sets to complete. We can have this open for future lands sets. Should a fifth section open we can have a lvl5 castle that may serve as a gold sink as well and provide the same perk as the lvl4 castle for abyss swaps. This would make sense otherwise lets say we are at the fifth or sixth land set. The gold sink may not be that appropriate and much less if it also affects building in future lands, better have a scale up ratio as lands and new buildings appear. Basically lvl4 castle for abyss swaps Lvl 5 for next set of lands Lvl 6 for next set and so on After all. We must also think ahead Open Possibilities? OSW. You can change your build according to needs. Imagine being able to tower up or change for a massive strip without need of gold. Youll be in more control of your contribution to the clan and to the needs of the moment To be fair OSW is not something ive experienced unlike many here. But id love to see your input in how can it help and ill edit your suggestions here Epic battles The best example right now is how the LOTL or SoTF eb is atm. If you are attack heavy or spy heavy you are limited in your damage. You could be doing hundreds of damage with one bar but limited and failing with the other( attack/spy bars) As new ebs come and their difficulty increases you can change to help spy heavy or attack heavy bars. especially should they be multiple bars or massive regens. A clan can move their course of action calling out for build changes to tackle harder and more complex ebs. Wars Lets be honest. While ll wars are fun. It would be great to have the other lands play the field as well. Giving you the option to massively change builds will allow you to be more competitive when being chosen to war by a WC. Not to mention ASW and Season wars. This also opens a massive influx of gold towards allies. Should players now no longer have rebuild costs you can build that BFA up and be more competitive rather than be stuck in a rebuild costs cycle. I understand this is a game changer, but i do believe in this idea and id like to see how you can improve on it and share feedback Would this help you in the long run? Would it help your clan mates?
