Territory payment in advance

8 posts in this topic

So I was forced to pay my territory 3 days before as I was leaving for few days. (and it's not cheap for me, 20k ;)
I was thinking that it would be a good feature if the 3 days added to my "balance" in days left to pay for next payment.

OR maybe if I could make 2-3 payments for the next 2-3 payment dates so days would be adding up each time I pay.

I understand that players might abuse this and pay for a year up front that's why up to 2-3 payments would be a legit thing to implement as some might play solo and leave for holidays for up to a month :)

I agree you should be able to pay for your territory up front for at lease a month or two.  I actually stopped playing exile because I went on vacation and came back and all my shit was gone.  Not fair.

We'll I'm not new to ARMA ... been playing since OFP days so thank you very much.  I get the bugs as that is part of arma but when Dev's put systems in that force you to play every week or loose your shit,  I loose my shit.  This is a game and I have a RL as well and because i have obligations outside of the game doesn't mean I should loose all that i've worked for in game.  I'm willing to pay but I cannot.  That like renting a apartment and not being allowed to pay the landlord up front when you go on vacation.  You come back from vacation and you've been evicted.  Makes no sense

The reason it doesn't work this way is because there would be no way to stop every player with a base from paying a huge amount of protection in advance. Players that haven't been on the server in months would still have bases. Unused bases wouldn't despawn. Things would get crowded and laggy.

As I've said before, it would make sense to discount the current fee based on how much time is left. If there's still 50% left on the protection time, just discount the fee by 50% and set the new due date from the present day (like it currently does). That way, there's no penalty for paying early, but the overall protection window is not expanded (i.e., you still need to pay protection again within the next X days).

I understand that you need to be able to cleanup bases that are not used but being able to pay one interval more in advance would help a lot

Btw just speak with an admin on their ts bevore u go to holidays, they will expand the time for sure. At the end its up to the Admins how long they will keep the bases, on the server where i play it is almost 24/7 full 70 players and the pay time is 7 days, the base parts would be already max with 2 weeks paytime because of the amount of player and the cheap pay amount. We got a level 10 base with 210 parts and we only need to pay 15k tabs ^^

Btw 70 players does mean that there are alot more active players because the 70 players that are at the moment online arent the whole day on.

Totally unworkable, as the price of protection varies depending on the base items and base level. The only way you could do it would be to charge for the maximum size base with the maximum amount of constructions. Otherwise players would just try to cheat the system.
