There is many alts in this game which are annoying entire leagues, you wake up and your beacon has been hit 300 times by the same player, There should be a limit of 10 times you can hit a beacon in a day just like all the other limits. I dont think it is fair that an entire league should lose all its battle reports because of some disshonourable players.

Yes its very annoying or maybe restore the previous limitations that were set to only Captains hitting beacons and have a minimum level requirement.  I have just had my reports spammed by a level 26 alt for numerous single archer hits.  We use our reports to assist our members.


You can't even purchase a fireball until you reach level 40 so maybe you should not be able to hit a beacon until say level 60 and know enough about the game to understand what hitting a beacon means.

Why don't they just monitor their own game.

Wouldn't be hard to write a script to monitor this kind of behavior, save the evidence and allow a human moderator/admin to pick up the report and take appropriate action.

Even large leagues have thought this "beacon spam" was acceptable during beacon attacks to try and slow down other players games and make it more difficult for them to manage their accounts.

Has no place in the game and the rest of us shoulnd't have to put up with it.
Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

I think it is also useful minimum troops to send, number or offence force....

That wouldn't really work.  There are times when you don't want to hit a beacon with a large force (if it's a level 1 and you know there are no troops on it, and just want to put your league's flag on it). 

@djmoody 

Beacon spam is not against any game rules, so for plarium to monitor it and take action against those who do it, the rules would first have to be changed. These tactics are, however, easy to defeat :)

Sorry why do you think the setting is useless?  It filters out the reports, so the alts can send as many 1 archer attacks as they want and you don't have to look at them.  I fail to see what your problem with it is.
