Just start it on a beta server, test it, then roll it out everywhere. Yes, some of the old worlds need a refresher, why not grant it to them after years of payments?

As I said before: This is a very very tough decision. I can understand everybody who wants that new feature on old worlds, totally. On the other hand I can understand everybody who does no want to get wiped because Forgotten attack his unprepared bases. Yes, you can communicate beforehand, but there will still be players getting caught unprepared.
Also, there are technical issues to overcome to add it to old worlds. Those are not impossible to overcome, but add to the situation.
Personally, I do not think that it is set in stone that it won't come on old worlds yet. But, that's only a personal opinion, I am not the person to decide this.

It's based on the level of the Forgotten base the attack is coming from.

on w69 i was 1st to center but ranked over 30 because i never farmed, on w83 with a production based eco i made it 1st to center and atm am ranked 2 and 3 with both my accounts, looks like the system will restore that old advantage to farmers.

RE: The Forgotten Attacks are coming – FAQ
Beta world to start with does make sense, but how are you going to test the higher lvl forgotten armies on a new world? Im sure it will take people at least 6 months to get to the center.

Put it out on the old worlds and let us do the testing with the 50+ forgotten armies. Big Grin Pretty please!!


OMG completely missed the opening date on the first FAQ. Please disregard the next line. Smile
(Also, any ETA on the beta world for this? 1 month, 3 month, 1.5 years? lol)

Sorry but I do not see the connection between your rank and the situation you describe.

Vez is saying that if the forgotten attacks are based on the surrounding forgotten bases that front line diggers will get hosed, while those that remain back from the front and farm (at forgotten base levels several levels lower than the front line), will have it much easier.

Let's say it this way: Going into Forgotten territory will make you regret it, if you are not prepared.

So what if a player with a high offense moves he base back towards the outer ring close to smaller players. Does that mean the higher lvl camps will attack the smaller players?


Seems like an easy way to harass new people or late comers without having to actually do anything.

Awesome feature, long awaited. Not giving it to the old worlds (= the majority of the playerbase) is an awful failure though.
