    Proposal:
    Have the ability to undo time lasting spells.

    Have you Checked the DNS and PSI lists in the Archives? Is this idea similar to one that has been previously suggested?
    No I didn't

    Reason:
    Sometimes I really need some silver and I try to cast Treasures of the Underworld, but my mouse often slips and clicks City Protection, if you guys could implement this simple idea, undoing spells, it would be awesome

    Details:
    It should be located next to the favor cap, and whatever spell is undone, you receive 1/4 of your favor back, but you only have the ability to undo the spell the first 5 minutes time it is casted so people don't do last minute spell undo to cheat favor.

    ?Times per month: 5?

    Visual Aids:
    Anyone

    Balance:
    Won't affect anything

    Abuse Prevention:
    How?

    Summary:
    Awesome time :)

    Abuse would come from timed removal of a city protection spell, a bunch of allies cast troop spells at the city, then a new city protection is cast. It could be repeated as new allies log in and see the calls for support.

    I don't like this idea. Reasons given above.

    No favor back won't go over well either, I'm afraid.

    Abuse would be a huge deal.

    If we could cap the amount of times you retracted a spell and put no favor getting back..maybe I'd somewhat understand.

    Make all the favor reimbursable. Let the time to cancel the spell be 10 seconds. Any spell should be cancel-able like it never was cast in the first place. I'm thinking that there might be server load because of this, but Im not a computer person!

    Just my 2C

    I wouldn't mind being able to cancel a spell for example call of the ocean or pop growth i occasionally miss click and it is put on the wrong city. I think if you were able to cancel it in say the first minute and get the favor back would minimise abuse potential. Its still there but its limited.

    Well, a time cap could be placed. Let's make it something like only five reverts or revokes per 3 months or something like that. This is true for all members including premium.

    Time cap: 10 seconds. Effect: basically an undo button.
    Cannot be used on Athena's city protection

    Ten seconds is too less. And you got to set a cap for the number of times it can be done in a month or in a year for all member whether premium or not.

    160 times??? That's 13.33 times a month. That's too much. How about 60 times a year? I mean this 160 times cap will make people a bit more careless. The 60 times a year or 5 times a month, will keep, how to say, people on their toes.

    HEY I know! Lets keep it undo-able only if city protection did not block any incoming spell. And I want the time cap @15 seconds.
    Seriously, how long would it take to click the undo button?

    You would still be able to cast the treasures of the underworld, no? Unless in the last update they swapped City Protection from Athena to Hades...

    Anyhow, I don't see how it's a problem. If you cast the wrong spell it's your problem. Adding to my confusion, if you cast city protection, you can still cast another spell in some cases two. You could easily fit the highest favor spells 1 of each.
