Yep I've been the bad guy for putting too little, too much or even dropping at all.I did that when I was new, and I almost left the game because of one who accused me of being a jerk. I honestly couldn't understand why until I came to the forum. I wasn't the jerk. He was.
If I'm dropping to a new neighbour and can't figure out if they're in a net0 fs then I leave a fiver because I know I won't lose KP. I never drop less than 5 for anything but the bottom chest which I'll put 1kp on. A top chest gets 1/2 to 3/4 of its value if they're a trusted city but I'm not going to drop 20-30 KP only to be pushed off the whole thing.I don't know about the others, but I have said many times that if someone is actually helping, and not poaching, do the nice thing and put in at least 5 KP. Even the last chest gives back at least 5 KP, so that as a minimum has always felt fair to me.
My point exactly this is only an issue if your fellows are such a cheapskates that they are not willing to help you out without a profit.No offense to anyone, but, if a random player puts 1 KP on your AW do you lose anything? No, you don't so WHO is hurt by this? Your fellow FS mates are only "hurt" if they place 1 or less and if you only left 1 kp to fill the AW ... Well, that is obviously your fault.
Sorry, but there is no need for this.
Oh and in the 2 years I have played this game none of the poachers were ever friends... Which is the whole point of my post
You have not, you just stated that "everyone hates it"
Without specifics on how this is a bad thing, or detrimental to the game or your progress, the developers not only will not consider it, there is 0 chance I can get the idea past the first tier of voting.
If players are only donating 1 KP and getting an Ancient Knowledge 3 or more out of that pittance of a Donation then they are Profiting for nearly Nothing. This, I believe, is the overall Issue. Some might even consider it Exploitation.
I love this analogy, I think it's a fair assesment of the type of people how hate getting KP and see them as poachers.This 'fix' boggles my mind. In an effort to prevent somebody getting a chest the idea is to fill it yourself and waste the free KP sitting in chests?
It reminds me of this miserable git who used to sit in his car for up to 40 minutes to use up his parking metre fare because he didn't want anyone getting 'his' 40 minutes.
For anyone wanting chests for 1kp come visits my cities and take all you want. Same goes for Tartaros cities too.
I have actually done this. I had some guy pull up behind me as I was putting quarters in the machine. When I got to my second tire he actually got out of his car and ask me, in a disapproving and impatient tone, "How much longer are you going to take?".lol i saw a guy a couple of days ago at the gas station sit and wait for his air pump timer to expire then drive off vs letting the next car use any of his air
