For those who have not noticed the ranks that can see into the Beacons has changed. Ambassador's can no longer see what is in a Beacon. This is a change most of the Marshal's asked for. Well done Plarium.

So from now the only ranks that can see beacon and fortress garrisons are Fighter, Commander, Captain and Marshal. Finally after very long time asking for this, now we will be able to play more fairly with ranks, so the community we are very grateful for that.


There's just 1 little extra change I'd like to see, now there's no difference between Soldier, Guardian, Ranger and Ambassador ranks, (there wasn't either before between the 3 last ones), but advancing to Fighter means now already 2 changes, watching the league defenses in garrisons, and being able to send league attacks. There are members I want to be able to send league attacks, just they haven't earned the trust to see our league's defense structure, so, I'm pretty sure it won't happen, but I would like to see Plarium devs adding the Knights to the ranks able to send league attacks, or decreasing the ranks that can see league's garrisons only to Commanders, Captains and Marshal. That way there would be only 1 big change for each rank that you get promoted.

Agreed, it would be helpful if we could let people send league attacks without them getting to see what's in the beacons/fortress.
Any opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily represent the opinions of or constitute official statements by Plarium.

If the players had been consulted the overwhelming response for being able to see in beacons would have been captain and above.

It's a shame after all the wait for it to be changed but sub-optimally so it's still really an issue. At least we have a few extra levels to play with now.

Marshal definable like a couple of other existing options would have been even better. 

And as someone who knows a bit of coding, it's such a simple and easy thing to code (1 line of extra code to pull a user definable variable into an if statement, and a very simple UI for the marshall to input the league's choice). 

It wouldn't be used that much because people without access wouldn't keep using the screen (looking at your own beacon troops is way easier in the keep screens). The extra server load would be negligible.

It's amazing that a simple thing that all leagues and alliances universally asked for can't be done. Represents a few hours work max (a really good coder who new their way around the game's set up, maybe as little as an hour).

If makes you lose hope that any customer led suggestion can/will ever be implemented because the only thing that makes it to the development board is the next coining exploit. Very very sad.

Making the game better can also lead to increased revenue!!!!

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

Hello.

I'll forward this suggestion to devs :)

I agree with MAD ROY.


I have one question, was there any news to reflect this change? I heard rumors, but not able to find any solid statement regarding it.
