Here's a little idea of me. I have no idea if there even will be clans or tribes (but I guess so) and don't even know wether this idea is possible in the game, but I just wanted to place it.
Okay, what I have in mind is that you can build a clancity. This city will be played /controlled by the clanleaders. They can build just like your own city, only the clancity has a few less options. Such as making his own units. A clancity can't make his own units, the clanmembers have to support and defend it! So then what's the use of a clancity. In my opinion it would be cool if the Clancity would boost your economy. So a clancity has bigger wood/stone/food producing building. Also I've read something about the fact that you need to 'control' an area before you can build it. Well then I suggest a clancity gives you a quite big area for your clan. I don't how big the whole map will be so I can't make actual suggestions, but I hope you understand what I mean!
So I'll try to sum up some things here.
- When the game has left the beginning stage, your clanleaders can build a clancity (which of course costs a lot, so it won't be very easy to get a clancity).
- This clancity will be 'controlled/played' by the clanleaders, so they can 'log-in' to it.
- A clancity is just as an normal city, except for building units/weapons.
- Having a clancity boosts your economy. So the clancity itself will produce more and more wood/stone/food/iron which can be sent to the clanmembers to help them.
- A clancity has to be protected by the other clanmembers. The can support the city. The clanleaders can build a wall or something and guard towers or something in the clancity, to has a standard defense.
- A clancity also allows you to 'control' a large area around it. So you don't build any guard towers or outposts to 'control the area'. (This is an option I read about somewhere)
- Clancities can only be destroyed, not taken over or anything.
- Each clan can make a different number of cities. A clan with only 10 members and a small amount of points (dont know if this will be buildingpoints, population or whatever, it's just a bit noob clan!
) can only make one city. A bit larger and better clan can make 3 and pro clans can make 5. [this can of course be changed]
Well, I hope the idea is clear, tell me what you think. I'm happy to answer questions if needed
