The problems we want to resolve:
•Losing a base can be a dramatic loss.
•Players have complained about being unable to reach their bases to defend them, despite increased warning time.
Our broad solution
•When an enemy attacks a base with defending soldiers, you have the option to abandon the base.
- In this case all soldiers are re-assigned to the nearest base to their one.
- You can only do this if you have another base.
•When a base is attacked without soldiers, or is abandoned, the base is not destroyed.
- Instead, all the facilities in the base are damaged by 40-80% of their current state.
Why make these changes?
•Base attacks are still a serious problem, but not game ending.
•It solves one of the frustrations that players have frequently expressed.
