Seems like a cool concept but I would prefer instead of paying resources to attack/defend and then attacking/defending I would want to just attack and not pay all these resources. But that's just me.
yea thats one that I've ye to figure out in my dream game =\

i only have a extremely simplistic answer haha super huge world

Yes, finite. Players aren't meant to hold their own territory, new players would join another kingdom or make their own with friends and expand using the ruleset provided, it would require more to start but it would be doable. The other option is to make it unlimited and expand the map as need be. Perhaps have part of the map under an unplayable faction that can't directly be attacked but will lose territory as needed to give new kingdoms a way to form. The other option is to make the game revolve around the race factions, where depending on your race you automatically join one of the three factions, possibly have smaller rogue factions as well. It would require a different ruleset, but it's easy to draw up.

As far as paying resources, there needs to be some cost to attacking or building up is too high risk with little reward. This is only for fights between territories though, not just regular matches.

Hmm, the idea is interesting but I still don't like the paying resources part, to me it seems like its discouraging attacking a lot. If you build up a bunch then you should have an army to protect your buildings.

It's either that or increase the penalty for losing an attack significantly.

ok well first, I also dunno about the paying resources idea. second, if theres a land issue, it's gonna be different based on day and night, why not just do separate worlds/servers like SG.

As for the part I quoted, this isn't a traditional ladder though, and I personally think the MMO mode will have people go on build up some then go do some battles in traditional ladder mode. Thing is, when you add too many options it still splits up the player base, and this could really draw players away from the MMORTS mode unless there is a large enough total player base.

preferably it would be the focus of MMORTS mode, not just something a few decide to do and some don't.

isnt this whole game pretty much based on online play where you have persistent kingdoms with set territories fighting it out to control more territorys, and you expand by seiging citys? and if this is how the online game will be every time a new player comes they would just spawn a peice of territory on the edge of the world map enabling a constantly expanding world i guess....... my dream game is like the total war series but way more in depth when it comes to economy and and more realistic warfare and seiges. and instead of AI you would be playing other players in one HUGE world, add in diplomacy and technology and you have the perfect game.
