First of all this nice Statistic - It covers the Average Holidays taken in Europe. Please look:
As you can see we are mainly at max 2 weeks! I presume it is taken vacation lengh. So on holiday trips - gone from cumputer is probably less.
Your Vacation Decay Timer had been very helpful. Else my complete Constructions would not have made it during my holiday.
Unfortunatly Holidays ( School) of my kids last longer then only first week of August. They go to September 13th. in Germany.
So example - i am gone from 1st September to 8 st Setember. 350 hours of building in Conan destroyed.
How big are my chances to remotivate if i know that buildings will be gone again next vacation time christmas?
Again it would be in christmas a trip for sure to mountains within a week.
I did hope that after Funcom also being on vacation they remember that most of us take 1 week on trips.
So my request would be to not resete back to 1 week. Go please slightly over 1 week decay time. I would suggest 9 days. 2 weeks would be perfect.
If not please find a solution that i can join a clan and leave a clan after my vacation and retain my own buildings?
Sounds more complecated then setting the decay timer a little up.
I can give feedback that during the expanded vacation decay you did create i did not feel like it was game destroying for anyone. We even had buildings go away with this long decay timer of inactive gamers.
I am sure that the 1 week mark is your main problem. As most are gone not longer.
And if i am gone 2 weeks … i would accept that a decay is inevitable.
But not for just 1 week gone.
Please consider it.
