Shady lady needs to Change

Shady Lady event needs to be changed. It is a big problem causer amongst alliances. If they (gge) would set it up like the hunstsman event (controlled the hits within 10 levels) and the hits didn't affect the defender (no loss of tools, no loss of troops, no glory) then the event would be more fun - hitting for the sake of reward.

Please consider making this change. Many alliance problems occur because of the Shady Lady event. Wars start, smaller players burn un-necessarily, it's a problem event.

    I agree, she needs to get a scarf or something to make sure she doesn't catch a chill on these frosty,dark nights.....

    The event, however, I'm torn on need for change.... it is optional and as everyone will point out "It's a war game". As it stands its a good learning tool for pvp and diplomacy which maybe skewed a little by standards of alliance leadership and, of course, the deplorable lack of fresh and rotating targets/potential opponents caused by the lack of players wanting to join and stay. I guess this catch 22 does make it a bit more toxic than usual.Worth a furlough until numbers are on an increasing track?

    On the upside it does give opportunities for interactions with other alliances and for identifying who the complete idiots are who are near you and a chance for some pvp at a notch below all out war.

    If it were to be made the same as a huntsman event, better to retire "Shady" than make a pale imitation

    In an ideal world I'd like to think it could be tweaked maybe to give more "balanced" and reasonable targets (not too close, not too different in capability) and perhaps spiced up with rewards more in line with "cost to complete"

    Pretty sure they can do that whether we all talk about it or not......
  • I just wish there was a limit on levels.  There are too many level 50's getting hit by level 70's in Shady Lady.

    The Shady Lady just needs to keep her cloak closed.  ;)

    Seriously though, hitting the target IS optional and most Alliances / Players will make a deal to accept a Shady Hit.  As always, it is bad attitudes that make it problematic.  BOTH those who hit to destroy on a Shady, and those who cry over a simple Shady.  

    PEOPLE, that's the problem...…….
    Good night.
    Sleep well.
    I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

    There are those that only hit known inactive player on the shady list and there are those that do about two rounds of the shady list.
    I know which type of player I sympathize most
