Topic: Peaceful Planet Transfer
I'm in a familiar frustrating situation in which I want to pass planets to a family member but the timezone differences make it feel like we're playing phone tag. As an attacker, this slows down my plans significantly.
Worse, it also reflects the gap between extremely active teams and those who aren't as fortunate to always have people online, a gap that we should be closing if we want to retain new/casual players.
I'm considering a feature in which you can "push" planets onto other family members, without them having to take any action at all. Better yet, it wouldn't require any actual attacks, meaning you could build a portal/laser on a specific planet or set of planets and then transfer ownership without having to mess around with meaningless "battles".
Obviously, this opens up new build strategies (some might say, abuse) in which a small player with a high construction bonus could do all of the family's infra work. I wonder though, is that such a bad thing?
I'm interested in your guys thoughts on this. Why is it a good idea? Why is it a bad idea?
