I'd like to announce the idea of clan camps and ask you for your opinion about it.
 
A clan camp is just a small area (20x20 meters, 1 meter = 1 cell) available for construction of predefined buildings and objects. Clan leaders and special members called builders will be able to construct towers, wooden sheds, stables, tents, watchtowers, place banners, spikes, crates with items and many other things. Sure, they'll need to pay for building from the clan treasury. Clan camps will be persistent.

A camp builder is a special downloadable application. You might be able to run it from browsers but I'm not sure about it at the moment. That's how it's going to look:

Such camps can be spawned on special maps in the game. The environment of camps won't be modifiable but it's possible to prepare several different environments and randomize the weather and time of day.
An in-game example of a camp (Click to Show)

Such maps will be randomly injected to the rotation on the battle server a few times a day. Sure, it will only happen if there are enough members of specific clans.

When the map starts, the game mode will be changed to Deathmatch and only members of the clan will be spawned inside the camp. There's going to be a special chest with gold (200-500) inside the camp. Any player will be able to steal the gold but then he'll need to protect it from all other enemies. If members of the clan will manage to protect the chest or return the gold, it will be added to their treasury as a reward. The map will end in 10-15 minutes.

What do you think about this idea?

This is so needed

 

Edit: Are the buildings going to be on a separate persistent server? Or will you just be able to build them on current servers and reset when the map changes?

I said it on the admin forum and I'll say it here, probably the coolest feature Homer has ever proposed.

Clan camps will be persistent. Clan leaders and "builders" will be able to build, upgrade, move and destroy buildings in the special application (offline). Then clan camps will be played on real servers.

How exactly would a leader/builder put the final product in a live game server? Does it spawn when the map loads or do we place it mid-battle?

Not many clans will be able to afford these high-end buildings.

 

You don't get enough money back from what you spend rendering them useless.

To be honest you really don't get enough out of it for how much you spend, like 200k for that big ass tower. There is also (in my opinion) not enough things to purchase for the camp itself.

If it was affordable then there would be too many camps, and of course there aren't enough items available to purchase yet, this feature was only announced about an hour ago and isn't even finished yet.

This sounds amazing :o

I can't imagine how much thought, fixes and tweaks into balancing this would need though D:

 

Also I'm curious, how about fame point rewards? Like if a clan has "Shield supply" Would there maybe be a small room with a bunch of shields or something? Or maybe if a clan has the right to use flags the main building has a couple flags on it or something?

 

Anyhow I absolutely love the idea :D

 

edit: That first screen actually kinda reminds me of the old Stronghold, maybe that's why I like it so much, also I like how it says "Camp of some clan"

I was considering making a screen screenshots of your crazy talk as well but that would probably just lead you to do the same and that could go on and on and this doesn't seem like the right place for that  :P
