Hi all,

This used to be a debated discussion and i was wondering what the stance on this would be now.
When you order militia on the farm or you remove support from a village ( returning attacks ),
the support is withdrawn at a time rounded to the second, rather than precise miliseconds. The same applies for militia - correct me if i'm wrong.

Would it be possible to make this more precise?

the negatives for this change would be that it could be overkill for experienced players in the sense that they would have a wider variety of option when sniping a noble train.
the positives are that it makes the game a bit more complex and allows for players to snipe with 1 village without having to resort to cancel sniping ( i.e. i wont b online in 8 hours so you support a village 4 hrs away and remove 4hrs b4 nt - of course this works if the nt overlaps the second)

all the best

thank you!
this didnt use to be the case.
if cancel sniping( militia ordering) has been fixed I was still wondering about the support sniping or returning attack sniping.

happy to be shutdown if people think its overkill.

I have been able to Militia snipe since I remember militia being added into the world settings. So maybe you just had bad luck with it, or happen to have a bug on the world you played?

I dont think so but will speak to different server moderators about it.

for BETA it still is 000
i complained to the support however the guy argued that those are the server settings.

I assume they did this because i was just in BETA to snipe the topguys countless times which is what seems to be happening to the majority of players in BETA since only a few are PP playing.

this is quite interesting

Im sorry for causing such confusion....

My main question was regarding attack and support "back -snipes" as it would make it possible to snipe in advance 8 hours for example, without needing to be online 10minutes before the noble train in order to cancel snipe.

I'm sure it would work in loads of other situations. It's simply a tactic which helps players to deal with longer periods of innactivity.
Strategy games are quickly losing popularity and perhaps simple measures like this could prove to keep things interesting as well as allowing it for busy people to continue their game without as much of an "activity disadvantage".

Thank you very much for your opinions and experience shared here girls/guys!!!

I don't think I still have those reports, since its been so long, so the exact MS I can't say :/ its just clear from them all being on the same second that the militia couldn't have been at 000, I'll take a look if I have any more specific screenshots tho, but I doubt it

I have memories of militia sniping a train that was ~900-300ms and I hit it to take out the 2nd noble so was thinking it spawns then at 000 ms on the same second you click.

a.k.a elmoo also militia sniped on 110, where the nobles landed on the same second. Usually a bit of delay though, maybe around 250ms after you call them out
