Statue Storage
« on: Oct 08, 2018, 04:34 PM »
Statue Storage would be truly useful if we could swap out fielded statues and stored statues at will to, for example,  optimize defense for Hammerman or maximize offense for raiding and Mega Crab.  This would end the need to destroy one fielded statue in order to place a stored statue.

I think that the statue storage concept could be improved but there would have to be limits to swapping in and out. Otherwise while you are attacking and online you would have mostly offense statues out. While you are offline and defending then you would put out mostly defensive ice statues. This sounds logical and great as you can attack more powerfully and defend more powerfully. BUT that is what everyone will be doing so you will be attacking all defensive bases with your all offensive statues ALL of the time.
It would negate the point of having statues and become a bit samey rather than the more exciting and interesting you hoped it would be.

Improve statue storage yes but not at will, we need another way, we can have a think about it 🙂


Edit maybe use hero tokens to swap out a statue?

I always thought let offense statues switch with themselves, non-offense statues with themselves, but NOT offense with non-offense.

As Crows said above - it would be a self negating exercise for all his reasons
As it is now you pick what statues you play with and can store for example ice for a leaderboard rush (apart from that the statue storage doesn't really have any value tho if I get max RR statues I store them just in case I need them for the future)

Maybe to take it further you can swap within colours.
Green for green
Dark for dark
Etc

Yes, I like the idea of self color swap 👍

Swapping green statue for green statue or red for red actually would not cause much harm to the game imo.
Certainly let you put TH down for a Scorcher attack and flip to TD for a Zooka attack.

The real question is "Would that be too powerful?". We could almost always have the optimal statues for multiple kinds of attacks. Why not hook the statue choice up to the Gunboat Loadout, that way you would never forget to change your statues...
Maybe it is too powerful.

I honestly doubt this would be as broken as one might think. The way I see it, where it would matter (could be annoying) is in high VP PVP. Generally speaking, these players only have 3 offensive statues (anomalies aside). This means that those players would not be affected. For everyone else, the result is optimal statue layout for crab and Tfs, which to me is a big +. Sure, being that every warrior with all damage and gee and torch with a lot of TH could be hard to defend, but I often see people playing their meta as per their statues (and usually you get raided anyways). Honestly, I think the good way more than outweighs the bad IMHO.

Yes, having the ability to swap definitely has to have some built-in limitations or involve a real sacrifice. Enough so that people could make minor adjustments to optimize performance on something like a weekend Mega Crab, but without being able to manipulate the integrity of the daily offensive/defensive balance.

Maybe something like a cool down period for days after a swap. Or a cap to how many statues can be swapped in a certain time period. Or whenever you switch, you have to keep that lineup for a certain number of days before any other swapping can occur. If you want to swap for crab you can, but then you're stuck with your crab lineup for days afterward and can't immediately ice up or switch back to your op lineup again. It has to cost you something.

Maybe a time restriction like once a week/ month and limit the number of statues you can swap. This has been discussed many many time.
