Railroad Poll  

18 members have voted

  1. 1. Would Railroads be a valuable option for land troop movement during gameplay?

    • Yes. Faster than moving on roads.
      18
    • No. We don't need railroads.
      0
  2. 2. Would lvl 9 be reasonable for allowing the construction of Railroad Stations, Railways, etc?

    • No. Too long of a wait. Build before lvl 9
      8
    • No. Not long enough. Build after lvl 9
      2
    • This is just right, like the baby bear's porridge.
      8
  3. 3. Should Rail Sub-Stations be allowed in Villages, Harbors, Military Zones, etc?

    • Yes!!! It allows for customized embark/debarkation of troops for follow-on tasks.
      14
    • No. Too many options. Only Should acceptable in cities.
      4
  4. 4. Should railroad be destructible between stops (rail stations, sub-stations, etc)

    • F$&k Yes!!! Reduce the enemy commander's ability to quickly move troops around the map.
      14
    • No. That is just dumb.
      4
  5. 5. Will you utilize the railroad if introduced into the game?

    • Heck Yes!!!
      18
    • Um...No.

I don't think that the tracks should be destructible between stations only because if you can destroy it in segments number 1 that's too many options and you might not see one that destroyed, instead just the stations and sub stations I feel should be destructible and 2 that's all your troops will be focused on attacking if you tell to attack to somewhere

I respect your viewpoint. I would like to highlight a couple sticking points in your reasoning so you can see the logic behind the request. 

This is a continuation of another post in which I detailed how the railroad should work. The reference fled post describe a randomly generated support station (think a water tower along the line) which is the sole target for railroads in each territory. Thus, your troops will attack this station once per area and not continually attack the rail itself.

Next, when attempting to send a troop to a location, it will tell you if a tower is down as it will not let you sent the train so you have a location where to search. Also, you could just check your messages to see when and where the line was damaged, thus easily repairing it. Conversely, we could give a repair railway option at the main stations which will save commanders the trouble of seeking the destroyed tower. 

does this yield better understanding behind the destructible railway logic?

It does but then it brings up another question, if the railways are preset, and coorespond with the roadways, what are you then to do if your train runs through an enemy city trying to get somewhere else?

My version of the the railways aren't generated until two stations are connected. If the railways run thru an enemy village, then take the village so you can maintain a visual. It should neve run through as enemy city.

Why not!?! Someone could cap a village in middle of a train line and then a Sniper Tower could make damage to the train running through it. I think it's great.                                   Also it will give the infantry a reason to be valuable in advance game for repair on damage track or other way around to sabotage a track.  Pvt.

Villages and cities are different. I support capturing villages to damage/destroy trains.
