Please notice the last 815 pages in the Population Rank (10 players/page) have population under 10. Most of them are at zero. That's 8,150 abandoned cities that are just taking up space. That's just today. This will grow as people sign on to play for 5 minutes and leave for whatever reason.
I can understand that each Aeria account login allows one lord. And some how if these people ever return to play, you don't want to have them start over again.
Can you please make a rule that if the population remains under certain amount after a given time, they will be relocated to a different server... or even move them all to one corner of the map? A lot of us have problems locating new resources or need to travel far to just find a wilderness to attack because all the abandoned cities are piling up, taking up space where wilderness could have been spawned.
- For those who likes to invade them, please remember I am talking about zero to almost 10 population cities that has no buildings and less than 4000 resources. It takes more food to send troops to bring back.
