Right i was thinking like say if an army is comming to attack you and it takes them like 1 hour to reach you, would there be a posibility of comming out of the safty of your castle and attack them while they unexpect it. for example im on my way to attack someone but they notice and send there army to cut me off/slow me down a map is generated so that both no buildings just army vrs army battle to the death. this would be better if ur facing a much stronger attacker because you can wipe all his seige wepons then build your army up even stonger while he makes more seige wepons.

well theres my view and i would love just to destroy people that way. proves that i have skill and that they wont try that again.

Well, it will be more like 2 minutes to go from your stronghold to an ennemy's one, but you do what you want with your army, so what you describe is possible, as soon as you can spy your ennemy.
If you're under a siege, you could also choose to go fight your opponent's army outside of your castle...

One hour to reach your stronghold? How big do you want the maps to be! It would be terrible having to march your troops for one hour just to reach your enemies base. Yeah they'll probably be 2-5mins apart. But im sure tactics like you said could still be employed to destroy their key units, like siege weapons, before they reach your castle. Hopefully like some guerilla warfare tactic could be used, with a special unti.

1 hour? Sounds like Cossacks. I think I aged twenty years just waiting for my guys to march across the map. ^^

Even if you could attack him while he was moving is army, do you really think he won't be waiting for you, and that he doesn't realize the part of your army you sent to attack him is no longer defending his base?

depeneds how far you can see on the map and maybe 1 hour was a bit to long, if they can only see a little of my walls ill just shove a tonne of ranged units there then make a fast skimishing party to destroy all you seige engines :)

I think it'll take about 5 minutes for the whole map.

He doesn't mean the whole map as in the 'whole gaming world', merely from one base to another during a typical engagement.

Even if you were moving across a huge world, 1 hour would be way too long.

Can you imagine waiting 1 hour to attack your ennemie, than another hour to send reiforcement if you realise you're hoppelesly outmatched!

i remember playing Fate of the dragon where there's a selection at the bottome where they allow you to jump maps from ur attack and their attacks map.. so u can manage to defend and attack at the same time.. just by jumping back and foward from from up to 8 maps of other players .. plus a world map where to can intercept the marching army =)

But the map is going to be HUGE and usually people are going to make friends in their reletive area and not across the map...

Or just give up and find a different MMO... Although, that is a stupid approach.

A hour just to each the other side of the word map doesn't seem bad, as long as you can set up strongholds in other places to make time less travel for troop reinforcements.

Just never mind about it. Anyways, back on topic, can you make alliances with just anybody do you think in a random skirmish or are they only allowed in clans?

I think that when you enter a game, it lasts for a few days in real life, and if there are friendly players, you can make an alliance with them... Or something like that.

I think you could, because after all it's only one game so the consequences of making an alliance aren't very enduring.

You got this post all wrong i didnt mean like if he was at your castle and attacking you. i mean like he's decided hes gunna attack you and hes gunna take like 5 mins to travel from his castle to yours and in that time you want to attack him so its not at your castle as to say. e.g. someone comes to attack you and halfway your armyies meets, the AI generates a map according to the place which you meet, both have no castles and just army vrs army...........

sorry if i confused you

I think I got to get this on track here, on topic more so I think, to what I just read you guys are worried that the game takes ‘days’, ‘hours’ etc to attack another player etc.
The game has its own time, time of day changes, from morning to night; day night day night, it takes, (currently in game) about 15-20 minutes to go through a whole day. It would be stupid if you had to wait a real time real life day to get to a good fighting point in a video game. Like in GTA games, night and day, 1 minute = 1 second but in real time, might be in the same way sort of.
DO NOT expect to just sit in your chair looking at the world map watching your little dot of an army ever so slowly moving up the world map taking hours and hours( and ‘days/24 hours’ as you say) to reach a enemy way off in a far away fantasy land.
Because it just won’t be that stupid, not that much atleast. :rolleyes:
