Change the Inactivity Formula

Postby Mundlier » Sat Sep 15, 2018 2:28 pm

The inactivity formula should be changed to 90+x^0.5.

With the current formula, to claim a 100x100 region, you would need to wait more than a year. With the new proposed formula, it would only take a little over 6 months.

It shouldn't take 1-3 years of waiting to claim larger inactive regions. The current formula is broken, it needs to be changed.

I somewhat agree, although I think that there should be a cap, like if your region is say, 30 x 30, it goes by normal rules, but beyond a certain point the formula changes to prevent absurd waits.

Ehh, idk. Theres a reason the formula is the way it is. Plus, anyone who went inactive knew about the former rule, not any new one.

I have already done a proposal like this, now too long ago. I think my proposal explains this issue pretty well. I included map screenshots, charts, and tables to explain how the change will affect HM.
