- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators

    Not sure if this has been suggested or not, tried looking over the list and I didn't see it but what about eVe stats. Like show your victory/defeat stats and how many executions. I know it doesn't add much for gameplay but I think it would be cool to see

      Re: Content Suggestion Thread 1.0

      Hello UWE Fam,

      Just thought of an idea: I keep "wanting to comment" all your post's but dont want to destroy thread with minimal responses.

      I.E. Agreed, ditto, same, lols, respect, ect, ect

      The idea being to add a (+rep button) by each posters comment, like a voting system. So for example: I agree with Chris's response, instead of quoting a 3 paragraph informative answer or opinion, followed by "i agree with you chris" I can just "vote up" his comment. Showing that I too agree with what's being stated. I'm not saying to "stop" quoting completly just to allow us to +rep/vote up or down the response as to not overtake a good thread and turn what should only be 3 pages into 12. Agree or disagree this is just IMO

      I know that looks weird as a mug but I think you'll understand what I mean.

          Reddit's code is opensource and while I could possibly convert our forums to a Underworld Empire "Reddit" style forum, it would not be pleasant. The source code for Reddit is attuned to scale to a .... Reddit.... size. Which we (obviously) do not have at this point. It would only add to confusion and make things a little harder to mod/find.

          That being said, I will look into a few different options if possible to see if possible to implement.

            Hey Airmid, great job on this, this must have taken forever to go through the suggestion thread and also your meeting notes to see what has been discussed and stuff. It also lets use know that you guys really ARE looking at suggestions over there at Phoenix Age. Keep up the great work, and great technical support too

              It would be nice if there was a level cap for battles. It's not fair or fun to get constantly attacked from 40, 50 levels up, and you can't fight back.
              O.G. An GW both have 10 level caps that limit your ability to attack lower level opponents.
              Say you spend a lot of money to get strong, but you keep getting attacked by someone 50 levels above you that has spent 0 dollars, but they can still beat you both ways. It's not right, fair, or balanced.

                At level 80 is when you can fight who every. If they put a level cap who would level 500 hits other than a few people. And DB at level 970 would get to hit no one. If your constantly being hit you too weak.

                  Re: Content Suggestion Thread 1.0

                  Not sure if this has been covered before. I think FARMING is an issue in this game. One payer has been attacking/dueling me for the last month every single day, every 2 hours. I am only at level 88, he is now at level 102. He has Farmed a total of 2000 fight points. I think there should be a limit to the number of times one can attack another player in 1 day. I know for a fact that because of this issue, it has ruined the game experience for a lot of players.

                    It would be cool to buy any of the previous Lts that were available on the favor page. Like right now there is the centurion. Why not have an arrow button to go back to eve, then ghost and so on. I would definetly buy them. This would give everyone to get tony and nightshade. Thanks great game.

                      This probably won't happen, as having something specifically for a limited time encourages players to spend and consequently buy more FP. Taking the time limit off would reduce the incentive as players would know that they can buy it anytime.

                        Ask your empire members to help - if you are in the right type of empire, they will.

                          I would help but as a level 107 it would probably be too close of a match for me to help.

                            Hello,

                            I would like to suggest 2 tools to help with empire member management, especially tracking who is active/inactive/contributing.

                            First Tool:

                            I am not suggesting something complicated, just a new section on the player profile called "Empire Statistics" that would contain 3 statistics:

                            Running total of number of active empire battles in the last 7 days.
                            Running total of empire contributions in the last 7 days.
                            Running total of levels gained in the last 7 days.

                            It would look like this:

                            Empire Statistics
                            (7 day running total)

                            Empire Battles: 14
                            Empire Contributions: 1,250 M
                            Levels gained: 3


                            ____

                            Second Tool:

                            Three new "sort order" options to the HQ empire member list.

                            Sort by Least Contributions
                            Sort by Least Empire Battles
                            Sort by least Level Progression.

                            These tools combined together would allow officers to quickly spot inactives and non contributors.
                            Tracking active members should not be a full time job.

                            What do you guys think?

                            Traitors will be hanged high, Dissidents will be sent to reeducation camps in Siberia, others will mostly just disappear.

                              I would like to suggest 2 tools to help with empire member management, especially tracking who is active/inactive/contributing.

                              First Tool:

                              I am not suggesting something complicated, just a new section on the player profile called "Empire Statistics" that would contain 3 statistics:

                              Running total of number of active empire battles in the last 7 days.
                              Running total of empire contributions in the last 7 days.
                              Running total of levels gained in the last 7 days.

                              It would look like this:

                              Empire Statistics
                              (7 day running total)

                              Empire Battles: 14
                              Empire Contributions: 1,250 M
                              Levels gained: 3


                              ____

                              Second Tool:

                              Three new "sort order" options to the HQ empire member list.

                              Sort by Least Contributions
                              Sort by Least Empire Battles
                              Sort by least Level Progression.

                              These tools combined together would allow officers to quickly spot inactives and non contributors.
                              Tracking active members should not be a full time job.

                              What do you guys think?
                              This is a great idea. For good active empires this tool would be invaluable!!
