1+1 Recruiting

so for all the new players that dont know what 1+1 recruiting is let me explain

all you had to do was recruit 1 troop, then press the alliance help button, this would make you get and extra troop, so you would be getting 1 free troop for every troops you recruit.

but now with the new way of recruiting ( which is pretty good) you cant 1+1 recruit, which is the only bad thing about the new recruiting style.

i think it would be a good idea to bring back 1+1 recruiting, cause i use to love doing this and im sure others in the community feel the same way

  • It was removed because 1+1 recruiting would mean that the use of bots would still be preferred, even with the new auto-recruit feature designed to combat them.

    If you're not happy with that then you need to blame the cheats.

  • Beyond the cheating aspect, GGS has stated that they never intended to have 1+1 recruiting being the fastest method.

    LOOL classic so it only took am about 4 years to notice that?  thatg i am not buying!  I suppose they never realised it was almost 50% cheaper to recruit that way either!

    1+1 was removed, not only because of cheats, but also to make the game more fair.

    The 80+16 system is more effective anyway and saves time. 1+1 will not be reintroduced for many reasons. Another reason that it won't be brought back is because then it would basically double auto-recruit selections and put smaller alliances and non-buyers at a disadvantage.

    But it's not 80+1? It's still 5+1.

    he means 5+1 or 80+16.  though it can certainly be higher with construction yards...

    I don't understand how 1+1 is cheating? Isn't it just strategy?

    1+1 in of itself isn't cheating but people who used bots were able to exploit this method in order to build large armies for a fraction of the cost. People were setting up bots to recruit 1+1 for them on a 24hr basis.

    GGS introduced the auto recruit feature to combat bot use. However, it was pointed out quite quickly that bot users would still prefer to use their bots because 1+1 could still be carried out. So GGS took the decision to remove 1+1 so that it could not be exploited.

    Now we have a system where you can set up several hours worth of troops with the +1 help for every 5 that are recruited. There is no real benefit to using a bot with this system.
    Ah I see that is pretty fair then.

    Not really a consequence. Over the course of a week the auto recruit would help 95% of players. Over a day period you obviously could recruit more troops with 1+1 but not everyone does it everyday because it is just chaos.

    100% agree. I occasionally 1+1 recruited but it was always a pain. In the long run, auto-recruit with 5+1 does me just fine :smile:

    I used to rent extra recruitment slots and would 1+1 for six hours in all castles.

    yeah it was possible however it really was a full time job by the time you finished all castles the first one was pretty much finished  and needed to go all over again.  i would do it but no often,
