Hi, I crowdsourced some suggestions I made on MU's, and let players vote the best suggestions.

 

This came out as 5 most popular suggestions

 

1. Make it possible to donate weapons and food to MU's
2. Give inventories to MU's
3. Make it possible to disband MU's for 30 gold
4. Make select members for autodistribution (was more populair than autodristibute for all members)
5. Show fellow MU members on the battlefield

 

Clearly MU's are being used alot for distibuting weapons, and that is a big part of the appeal of joining an MU.

The autodistribute functions I guess is not supereasy to program, but I guess an inventory and possibily to donate to it probably is a frist good step on that road.

The option to disband an MU shouldn't be hard to accomplish either. Showing MU-teammates might be a bit harder, depending on how you want to show it.

 

I hope you find the suggestions usefull, I'll keep making suggestions articles on other topics.

 

kind regards,

 

Daniel Parker

I like points 1, 2, 4

 

But i am not sure how useful point 3 would be.

What you ask here is a refund(or at least a partial one). And right now you can easily disband an MU already. So you loose the gold you invested in it. It is pretty much the same like parties. But you want money for it!!!

 

 

Point 5 seems a little redundant as well.

There are plenty of tools out there to see the info you look for. egov4you, weekly challenge board, scripts(not recommended),...etc

How can you disband an MU? I´m not aware of a button that does that. And sure, if you disband a company you get gold for it too, (less than you put in though) so why not an MU?. What´s wrong with wanting a little compensation? There are many useless MU´s flooding nations IMHO. Also please keep in mind that this isn´t just my opinion. Point 5 would help the social aspects of the game a little more seeing on the new battlefield you see other players better, ´I saw you tanking yesterday on the battlefield´ could help hardly used MU chats come alive for instance.

Just remove all members and leave the unit as well. When there is no-one in it is the end of the unit(just like political parties cease to exist when the last member is gone).

A company is an economical item(it was designed for that purpose, at least for part), but an MU or even a political party has a total different function.

Point 5 would help the social aspects of the game a little more seeing on the new battlefield you see other players better, ´I saw you tanking yesterday on the battlefield´ could help hardly used MU chats come alive for instance.

I can understand why it might appear useful, but it is in my opinion no more than a nice visual item.

I'm agree with all points except the 3.

 

Reason for not beeing agree with point 3, is that although a citizen is the creator of a MU and spent the gold for creating it. If the MU grows and becomes a important MU in a country, won't be fair, that the creator or commander decides unilaterally to disband it, to delete it, and get the gold. Lot of citizens would be affected and probably angry If they see the MU they love, deleted :)

 

Anyways all the other proposals are very good and lovely :D
