I propose that an account should be automatically placed into Vacation mode after 1 weeks of inactivity.
This suggestion has two reasons behind it:
1. It will mean that a player who has genuine life/internet connection problems doesn't return to a destroyed account. Both personal and natural disasters happen all over the world and people lose internet connection, sometimes for weeks.
2. It will mean an end to micro raiding of inactive accounts, meaning big raiding will mean raiding other active players, as a war game should be! It will also change chiefing as it will only be possible to chief villages from other active players. To counter the loss of villages to chief maybe a counter measure could be introduced, maybe a quicker automatic deletion process than at present, with a higher proportion of villages being turned into Natar villages.
The merger of all English language speaking domains in addition to the smaller map are great advances to increase activity, and I feel that this proposal will go even further to promote a war like play style and increased engagement between active players and alliances.
Looking forward to the feedback
