It's been mentioned that the resource requests would be better in a different tab than the request for attack and defend

But There is a separate tab: http://screencast.com/t/c7iH5CaLM

they are all under urgent help - resources imo are not urgent help since people should be doing their raids to build not rely on others, if running a high negative on food production ask in chat while online otherwise it will just disappear before you can log on to use it - once there you can look at different tabs but they are initially all under "urgent"

Dont think about what you would do.. Think about what OTHERS will do.. I already had a league member post an attack request the first day. Said his friend who'd been only playing for a week (and not a League member) had been raided a few times. So he posts the guy's coords, so i go check him out. The attacker is league-less and a mid 60's. Hes gotta get his res somewhere, right? So i told the guy sorry it stinks my league has a 7 day attack on u but im not gonna do it. So it was for a dumb reason someone pressed the button for Attack. Person raided was non league related, and other guy was league-less. And 3 ppl from my league attacked the guy. Sorry thats a raw deal. And i imagine there will be a thousand other instances of this nature taking place. All im sayin


  And just to add on, I think the 7 day thing is a bit overkill, not necessarily the "Attack" feature itself
I am in a large league over 150 players.. the first day someone posted an attack for 7 days, one day is up and only one attach has been sent against that player, so i dont see a big problem with it.

You can choose how long the attack request lasts, your member went over kill on a 7 day attack request, maybe message your Marshal to send a league wide to set some boundaries with this feature.  A good leadership would not really condone these types of help requests.  In our league the leadership discusses whether or not someone should be subject of a league strike, there would have to be good reason for it.  It will all be trial and error until people get used to it.  Attack requests should not be used for purposes outside the league unless its in support of an ally league and the Marshal should be the one putting it into effect.  It is a war game and people need to realize they or their friends might get attacked, a single attack does not warrant a league attack being placed on a player.  I have to agree there are a lot of players out there with no common sense, trust me I have dealt with many.


If someone is targeting member(s) the leadership is usually aware and will address the issue.  That is what trip archers are for

Got it now. I guess we're just limited in UI space, so we can't make a separate tab for everything.

Suggest you exit Plarium, clear your browser cache, then reenter Plarium. If that does not help contact support at http://support.plarium.com/enstormfall/Tickets/Submit/Step1/48

Can i say that posting an Attack request that lasts for 7 days seems WAAAYYY too harsh.. People put a lot of their hard earned money into this game. And if someone calls for an attack on someone, and it can happen at any random time for SEVEN DAYS... Well that can ruin a persons whole game, and can completely take the fun out of it for a lot of people. Not to mention it can make a lot of people just quit the game altogether from being harassed at any given time by a whole league for 7 days. NOT COOL.. I know i will not be happy if money ive spent goes down the tubes just because someone can post to their league for any reason, logical or illogical to attack u for 7 whole days at any random time. Dont like this idea at all. Seems very unfair to anyone it happens to, and all the money they will have lost just trying to play a game and have fun, and then can be completely sabotaged and blindsided out of nowhere. Not cool
A Challenge lasts 7 days. A War can last even longer. Moreover, earlier you could do the same by just writing in a Chat. So it doesn't actually depend on this feature. it depends on player decisions.
Can you add a feature to set attacks on a league as a whole, instead of individual players only? There are times when you'd want to hit a specific league (retaliation, intimidation, etc) but not have an actual declared challenge or war.
I think, therefore I game.

How much help do you get when someone clicks on build help?  Is says there is instant help but doesn't let you know how much you where helped or by whom.  Is there anyway to get this information?

you need to reach the total number of crossed arms to get help. so when you send building help request the arms will be at 0/x amount  and as players help it will get you closer to x amount of crossed arms when x/x then your building will be boosted by the amount shown in embassy, upgrade embassy to upgrade amount of time boosted.
I don't think this is correct FAILO, We were using this feature today and it seems that each time a player clicked on help, the time remaining for building completion was reduced. The amount of time it is reduced for each helper can be found by looking at your embassy info tab. The number of minutes maximum reduction divided by the maximum number of help responses gives the the number of minutes it is reduced each time.
If you don't make mistakes you are doing engineering wrong. If you don't fix the mistakes you are doing engineering way wrong. If you don't admit you make mistakes you aren't doing engineering.

Building Help will function as follows:


Building Help Requests allow all League Members to speed up the development of their League by reducing the time it takes for Buildings to be constructed or upgraded. Each time you request Building Help, your League Members will see your Request in the “Building Help” tab of the “Leagues” interface. All League Members are able to respond to your Requests.


Lord Oberon

How quickly everyone forgets that it was Plarium who INCREASED all upgrade times and then told us it was 'logical and justified' when upgrade duration was trebled

Maybe just an incredible coincidence that Craftsmen were introduced at the same time - with a hefty sapphire cost, of course

Why not revert to the original build times instead of generating more spam?

It's a good idea actually. I will pass it to our game developers.

depending on the level of your league fortress and embassy x many people can help you. each person that "helps" you will boost the construction time of your building by x amount.  and depending on the level of your embassy the max time that can be boosted also increases.  The help request will stay up untill either A, you cancel it (please note you cannot recreate it for that level after cancelling)  or B, the maximum number of people that can help you do.
