No one really does anything in territories anymore since the arrival of leagues. Most everything is walkered (white). No one has any incentive to clear walkers because, well…why spend the energy, get NO league TROPHIES, get crappy rewards (food, materials and a handful of useless gear) only to get about 4-6 tokens for holding the territory until your shield drops an hour later and everyone farms you for league trophies, most often leaving it to walkers again. Let’s see, I spend energy to clear walkers, get nothing for it and then someone else comes along and farms league trophies off of me…yeah, sign me up!
There is really NO INCENTIVE to clear walkers. Attackers are leaving territories to walkers either because they don’t have energy, have no free (unassigned) teams or most likely are trolls. What a shock that trolls are walkering everything just to cause grief for others.
In any case, if Scopely wanted to have territories more active and have us fight more amongst ourselves it appears that leagues have had the OPPOSITE effect, at least in our region.
The solution I believe is to give league trophies for clearing WALKERS as well as attacking owned territories. Maybe less trophies than owned territories but something. Come on Scopely, throw us a bone and give us some incentive to clear walkers in territories so that people actually want to participate in territories again.
