Instead of trying to destroy our Beacons with the next wave of illogical massacre tournaments that give no rewards ....


.... how about giving us Unified Beacons?


These have been available in other games since June, and it is now November




Unified Beacons give higher defense bonus, more dark essence and extra territory/influence



All adjoining Beacons get benefits



You are always so quick to inflict garbage upon stormfall players, but so slow to add beneficial updates

This sounds interesting... might add some strategy back into the game, and more pvp due to leagues trying to connect their beacons.
I think, therefore I game.

What we are slowly seeing is a split between the beacon players and the fort players.

That is the eventual outcome and each going after the other with different tactics.

Each with its own bennies and downfalls.

thats not the way i read it.  


beacon will become value less.  they were supposed to be valueless after this event but we stood up to plariums bullying. 


anyone trying to hold onto beacons now are jsut signing a death wish for their troops. plarium wants the beacons emptied.  they'll figure out how at our cost.

Beacons are still the biggest thing in the game, leagues are slowly realizing that fortresses are more beneficial. I doubt they want to make them redundant, a lot of blank spots to look at on the world map lol. This suggestion makes perfect sense to combat the imbalance of offense to defense ratio at the moment & revive the incentive to hold multiple/mass beacons & new strategies and tactics. The last beacon drop was the biggest one yet so i doubt they are trying to make them redundant.


If Plarium wants to bring life back to the game by restoring balance i highly advise implementing this suggestion into the game or something very similiar. There will be a reason to build mass defence again & a way to combat against heavy offense leagues like Emperors. 


Balance, thats what this game needs. And right now this game heavily favors offense over defense, time to balance the scales please :)

Hi! It's possible that we will add this feature to Stormfall. However, I haven't heard of such plans yet, so I can't tell you for sure.

It tells us everything that we need to know about your accountant's attitude to stormfall players.

Kill our defense. Give us nothing. Kill the game and then laugh all the way to the bank.

Effectively the fortress is 1 beacon.

For one beacon to give you +20% bonuses and all the others to be worthless besides DE (which isn't a big deal) is stupid.

The game should be changed so holding beacons confers some kind of advantage. And it should go way beyond just the advantage suggested in this thread of increased defence for the beacons themselves.

The whole fortress bonus should always have been obtained through beacon holding.
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 agree. It takes 5 beacons to get your fortress to level 20, why is there no requirements to hold level 20?? Its the highest level so it should have the highest requirements. Super beacons are a good start to restore balance back into the game. Because its heavily offense favored at the moment and not defense. This was a huge new beacon drop & they are more redundant than ever at the moment.


Super beacons or something similar, will bring nothing but positives from all angles into the game & for plarium. There is over 500 beacons on server one now, its time to give them a good use yeah?

Holding beacons gives great advantage. If DE is not such a big deal why would people bother having server wars and other league to league massacres over them in the 1st place?


If they gave no advantage none of the above would be worth it. Also DE I assume, since it is added to the troops base worth,  can have all the other bonus %s added to it. Which is another benny. Which a fort can add to. So DE is not that useless nor is the food reduction that comes with. Which a fort can also add to.


So how do you balance the two?  How do you balance them together? Each has its own place independently and together. You can balance out the def to conquer the meglo hammers. But with the force limits on attacking forts. If you thought some were tough to crack now, well that would make it almost impossible then. Unless you had a even bigger wave of hammers requiring another balance of defense recreating the cycle all over again.


Coiners are going to coin.


Beacons are a shtshow of politics between the major players of the game and I would be lying if I said it isn't fascinating to watch sometimes.

DE is nice to have but the most important point to have beacons are the influence points you gain from them the different achievements increase the influence and each beacon raise the influence too.

Only to show in league rankings how mighty and powerful is the league

Balance. But for whom? Beacon holding leagues only while the others can just tough it out....and eat crumBS while the super naps crush who ever attempts to claim their own without the politics.

Yeah. Balance...

Ink. I know of a army of one and they don't need a rank to tell me how powerful they are. I myself would rather have the fort than a beacon. No politics with a fort so can spend more time playing. And personally don't care for rankings and at my own request held the rank of recriut for months.


But everyone is different and views things threw their own experiences with different goals in mind

But if i saw it right in the threads its required to have beacons to upgrade the fort for higher lvs. If you know the army then you know what can happen to you if it comes your way. But this is a single exp league rankings all can see every player in all ranks and nobody of the smaller leagues would try to pick the bigger ones. Only if they are strong enough for such fights, brave or mad :)
