Let's do the maths.xa0
3500g for 100k of iron in store
3 day shield would cost approx 2.5 to 3k gold.xa0
How much iron can a player consecutively farm in a span of 3 days to make it worth the 3 day shield he is using?xa0
Let's be honest here, there can only be a few reasons for a player using a 3/7/30 day peace shield.xa0
- He is going on vacation
- He is hording alot of resources and unable to digest all of it immediately.xa0
- He has farmed all his life to save up for that few million of resources for his next keep and needs another few days to reach his goal.
P/S please note that 2/8 hrs shields are for short term prevention of attacks from enemys or scouts etc and hardly fulfill the above point validity.
In conclusion, what is the point of this whole article? It would be increasing the farming speed on resource nodes!xa0
It must be worthwhile for a player to use a prolonged shield to farm rather than directly buying from the store. Using lesser gold (aka buying a shield) but using time as compensation to farm up. That is called balancing the game. Either way, people spend their gold, which is good for the devs to continue doing their work, while attracting more players to spend.xa0
