Am I the only one who thinks that the Defensive Stronghold needs a rework of some sort?
I am sort of the belief that it should be reworked to have capped numbers to something like the following:
Strength | This Major Faction can have X Additional Ally Slots in addition to the base 5.
Weakness | This Major Faction has reduced Ally Slots by X.
X is any variable number though I am leaning more towards it being 3 since a single writer already contributes much to an invasion. With that in mind, the mandate would give 8 Ally Slots total on the negative side being only to request 2 Ally Slots if they tried to invade.
This is more or less nerf the benefits of Defensive Stronghold while still giving them some assurance that they can get some help if they tried to invade. In my eyes, this would be beneficial to smaller factions as well who can still have the benefit of the doubt that they will have some help if they tried to invade someone else.
To me, Defensive Stronghold is too much of a reason to just sit there and do nothing but twiddle thumbs 90% of the time while active.
