some of this was already addressed in rules changes made prior to cary. changing players between alliances in order to send resources and favor boosts to the wonders sites was successfully blocked w a 72 hour ban on sending res and favor to wonders upon joining an alliance, making that tactic obsolete.Just to go back to the original futboltango point
In my humble opinion this practice of rotating players to win crowns needs to be stopped, it would not by hard, all they have to do is
1) Block the changing of players between alliances once the WW stage has begun.
2) The "Victor of the World" and "Master of the World" crowns should only be issued once per world.
3) Once all 7 Wonders have been completed the "End of World" countdown clock should begin. (That would stop this endless drag, Invicta won Carystus back in Aug/Sep/Oct? so long ago I cannot remember exactly, but still we trudge on).
I understand the need for training school alliances, but you can quickly "sort the wheat from the chaff" and get the active fighters into the main alliance. (If for any reason you decide to abandon the alliance you are with, then you are left out on your own with no chance to win anything!)
This would also lead to a lot more fighting over the control of the WW islands, to prevent them being levelled up, or to demolish them once completed.
Multiple pacted alliances would probably cease to exist, because who wants to be part of a large pact, when that could prevent you from fighting for your own wonder/crown.
victor of the world can only be obtained once and once. all players in the alliance that first completes their fourth wonder get it along with the permanent extra 50 favor storage and only those players. no one else will get it on that world.
the crowns and master of the world are the ones that get passed around. i don't like it all that much either, but it is what it is, and it is a bargaining chip.
i could be wrong, but it looks to me like this has been addressed on domination servers now where only one team can get all these awards. i am not certain though.
i like the idea to start the countdown once the first set (or only set) is issued. you could propose this in the proper place and see if you get any bites.
