      I would love this! Have the same problem with exiting, coming back in and still not seeing right numbers. I am never sure if I'm telling my team to hit someone who is already dead. It would be especially useful in the last minute of battle!

      I also agree that there so be no aid to help coordinate team players in battle. I am as frustrated with some of my empire members as anyone is with theirs, but part of the fun is developing the teamwork necessary to advance your empire. Kind of like the difference between a teen-ager being giving a car and having to work for it himself. I could see maybe a message indicator that alerts of a new message but even that .... all you gotta do is have your chat open and then recruit members who will do the same!

Works for offensive wins/loses and defensive wins/loses.
        Right now attacking leads to too much passive damage taken, happens even that i stun myself or that i am close to without being attacked once and without losing even, and that without the armory. With armory i would kill myself as playing offensive without even losing one attack and without being attacked once! This skill is really missing and i hope that you going to implent it to the game.
        Yes agreed. I am killing my self before the enemy does ;(

          Again, very well said. If we take the team work and the discipline away, the battles then will be mostly about who has the highest ranking players. That would take away most of the fun of doing these battles. Troops don't train themselves. Leaders do.

            Hammer dont get mad at me lol bc I have posted this question in two other threads but it is more a suggestion and I cannot receive feedback on it! If it is somewhere else please let me know and I do appreciate your help very much! Thank you for being so active and helpfull as alot of us are still learning (this is alot to know) my suggestion is:

            Does anyone agree there should be a running battle log for each empire? Not for the opposing team to see of course but for each empire to see so they can tell who is participating without having to go through after the fight and look, and to see who is being a team player. I'd really appreciate some feedback on this. Thanks!

              Also if u don't want people replying to you in the forum then don't post it here. And lastly the war duration is perfectly fine for my guild at least as it gives us time to strategize on what to do in different situations rather than just come in spend ten tokens and that's it war won or lost. But wait!! That's not war that's tic tac toe which I believe still requires some thinking and time which obviously you and your guild has not got. I am amazed you had time to even post. Cheers and relaxations.

Some members either don't look at the chat, or will misunderstand their orders and attack the wrong target completely. Having something like that would give players a visual aid to go by, and would hopefully increase team co-ordination.

              See I am thinking some sort of empire battle log would be beneficial even if the whole tema sees it, but I a, the leader of my empire and it's soooo frustrating when players just hit "willy nilly" lol we have come down to having to go look after battles write down all players who played and compare who came to chat THAT'S ALOT OF WORK! Lol I just can't do that anymore, this is a game and I want to enjoy it, but trying to find these players is frustrating and time consuming...just an idea....

                Lol why would I get mad at u It's a very good suggestion! We are having the same problem and I'm sure a lot of other empires share that view.

                Again it all comes down to human interaction and better, easier controls and gameplay. How we view and react when things doesn't go our way and how far we are willing to go to try to tackle that. Somehow I feel your suggestion is much better than the one I was against because yours doesn't take out the human part of the battle and it will actually help us to better communicate and organize. I think it's a great idea

                  I was just messin with you about getting mad because of your previous post...I have posted the same suggestion on a few threads but....no reply so thank you for replying and I was totally just giving you a hard time, u are a big help! now then about the coffee you posted in a different reply..I could really go for some right now . On a serious note Im glad u like the idea, it really is getting frustrating having to manually write it down and compare with my officers. I would love to discuss this with you and ,maybe with two heads we can figure out a feasible way to do this. I know that it's tickin my officers off as well as those who do check in to chat and wait for strategy and I Have noticed throughout the forums others having similar issues as you said.
                  Until next time thank you again hammer!

                    1. I think the "running battle log" you describe is a great idea. Cuts down on the time needed to take attendance, and does not take away from the need to properly train troops.

                    2. I would also like to suggest an easy way to track contributions in game, so we can easily see who has contributed and who has not. Again, very tedious to do this manually.

                    3. Finally, I think a log of boss fight points contribution would also be good. A running log of how many points a player has contributed in the last 10 days or so. This helps officers easily see who has been contributing to boss fights and who has not.

                    The three things above allow officers to quickly determine who is active and who is not.

                      I vote yes for battle logs, and it also would be cool to have some kind of tracking for officers to see how active people are.

                      • Re: Have Questions about Empire Battles? FAQ

                        Slh and Anshin: I totally agree the log will b a great help and it doesn't take away human interaction and communication but will b a great help!

                        Also currently there's NO way for officers to know for sure who did what. A lot of our members won't chat maybe because they are busy at other things or maybe because they are just quiet type. But they do read and listen during battles and they do follow orders. Then there're some just come whenever they can and hit anything to dump tokens. Or they just don't care and don't like to take orders... Now there's no way to distinguish between these two types... So a battle log will greatly help us. Then we can do the hard part by talking to them one by one to figure out what should b done to change that.
                        So thank u for listening to me and best of luck yall

                          @ashin @stone @hammer who can we talk to about this or maybe have read this to possibly have the creators think about it? Should I or someone else post this in a different spot? I would really and I can speak for me team our empire would really like to see something like this happen.

                            If you've played CA you know there is a battle log. Of course we realize how useful the battle log is. We didn't have time to get it into the 1.3 update and it also will not be in 1.3.5, but you should see it in the 1.4 update, as has been planned since before 1.3 was released.
