Reserving Ruins

I have had this problem, and I know anyone else who has also encountered it finds it very frustrating. When you find a convenient place to put your castle that is occupied by ruins, it will tell you "ruins free in x.x days. However, when you get there and count down to the second, it says "waiting to be deleted", then right after, it's occupied by some new lvl 5. What I suggest is that we should be able to reserve a set of ruins, so that if the ruins disappear, you will automatically start moving there, and if the owner comes back you get a notification that says something like "sorry, but the owners of the ruin have returned. The spot is no longer available." That way, there isn't the risk of getting the spot you have been waiting for 7 days dissapearing under a new player.

p.s. I did a search before this, but I just got a bunch of useless threads about people complaining.

    Great idea, I know some people who want to move their castle by me, and right before they can, a noob takes the spot, goes to ruins, another noob takes it, and so on.

    Completely agree. I had a friend who had trouble with this, and eventually just gave up because though there was lots of ruins, it was just happening over and over. I complained to support that ruins who's time had come to an end shouldn't wait around with 'to be deleted' but should automatically be deleted. Got a poor response, and they ended up blaming server lag... HA

    I totally agree,and I had a lot of esperience with this.

    I had to try 12 whole times before I moved my castle.11 of those 12 times,it was because a newbie showed up 1 second after I refresh or whatever.

    It got so depressing,I waited 7 hours before the spot became avaliable.I open the tab,and by the time I get there,a newbie shows up.

    I'd suggest that all ruins after they become available (meaning already past the "waiting to be deleted" stage), they should sit empty for 2 hours so anyone who wants to move to the spot can do so. After the 2 hours is up, then it can be occupied by a new player.

    As it is, it is totally ridiculous to see the endless cycle of new players occupying spots and then it'll go to ruins after a few days. And batches of new players, ruins, batches of new players, ruins........
    If you don't like reading criticism of the game, then don't read
