Noble density per realm - Dwilight
« Topic Start: March 08, 2014, 05:23:06 PM »
Here are the noble densities for each realm relative to number of regions.

                           Nobles          Regions        Density
Morek                     34                 34               1.0
Barca                     40                 20               2.0
Fissoa                     27                 18               1.5
Astrum                   17                 11               1.55
D'Hara                    24                 16               1.5
Corsanctum            15                 12               1.25
Asylon                    44                 26               1.69
Luria Nova              35                 27               1.30
Niselur                   27                 15                1.8
Swordfell                18                 10               1.8

Something I found very very interesting. Take it for what you will. By the way, the number of nobles from new families in Barca at least is up from three weeks ago. We had 37 nobles then.  We've been on an upward trend in number of nobles for a while now.

It will be interesting to see how these shift in the coming weeks.

Luria Nova had around 35 a few weeks back. I think Asylon was the same. I clearly remember Morek, LN, Asylon being with 2-5 nobles of each other when I looked. And indeed, interesting it shall be. I can't wait for a vibrant eastern dwilight choke full of nobles with ambition, revenge, faith, and all those other good characteristics that lead to wars. :)

EDIT: Disregard the above. Apparently I misread that data by confusing regions for nobles. :P

Yeah Barca has been getting new nobles even post-monster invasion. Too bad we don't have enough gold :(

So what is everyones' thoughts, and perhaps someone else could do this for each continent?

Assuming we (Corsanctum) don't get conquered by nomads, if Astrum broke and immigrated to us we would be just peachy on nobles/region.  On a related note, damn Morek has a lot of land.  The Golden Horde of Darfix should relieve them of some, I hear Nifel peninsula is beautiful this time of year. :P

About noble density per realm, it can quickly change.

I will post what I posted in the Asylonthread as I think it kinda touches the subject here aswell.


Did anyone watch the latest episodes of History Channels Vikings?
Some scenes there was VERY fitting for Asylons current fate.

This link is to the full episode that  found on youtube, to avoid spoilers just go to the 28.50 mark and enjoy that scene on the field.

My thoughts are that this strategy will fail. Reducing the number of regions won't increase region/noble density over time because the problem is not that there are too many regions. The problem is that being a lowly knight without a lordship is boring. Knights have nothing to do! If you want something that will really help player retention, pay more attention to the feature requests and develop the ones that give players more things to do.


You predict that this freezing strategy will pay off in a year or two. BS. I've been in this game for about a year and the only reason I've stayed in it is that my chars were lucky enough to get promotions, which meant giving them more engaging things to do. There's no way in hell I would still be here otherwise. You can only train your unit and visit the academy so many times before you say '!@#$ this, I'd rather browse facebook'.

I'm sorry, but this just doesn't make any sense.

Sure, you may find being a knight boring. But there's more to do as a knight now than there has been at any other time in BattleMaster's history, including the peak of our growth around six years ago.

That said, I do want to make all aspects of the game, especially being a knight, more interesting and fun. The way I'm planning to do that right now is to make war more prevalent and less frustrating.
