    You forgot to mention that in every kingdom at least 10 provinces are maintained by same butt crawler who votes for himself

    Only a complete retard see raze killing as solution to your own skilless

As a (former) donator to keeping munkbot going and a current gifter of credits to our monarch to ensure we have the new bot linked to our discord I will say this...

    The bot itself won't make or break a kingdoms success / failure rate, what it does do is give your kingdoms leadership the abilities to see how the kingdom is situated at any point in time, to see what a potential war targets intel is quickly and be looked at (read that as arranged) is different viewpoints quickly and allows leadership to make a somewhat informed decision of the best strategies to use in an upcoming conflict against said target...

    This time saving is substantial compared to the old 'pre bot' ways of doing the same thing.

    This time saving gives those of us who lead busy work / social lives a way to enjoy playing Utopia even still after nearly 20 years...

    I do appreciate and understand that it's not for everybody and do agree that an option should be there to turn off intel gathering...

    To the one person that mentioned civil wars becoming more difficult... Should they even be 'a thing' in a team based game like utopia??? Yes i can understand you might get some a-hole clueless monarch, so what does the new intel site do that stops you changing votes to a different monarch and raze killing the one you had?

    I've seen (and done) monarchy changes and removal of problem provinces handled using only in game mail, kingdom forums and so forth before... I see no way that the new bot impacts on that at all...
    All true, and also it really helps in guiding new players or deciding if someone needs razing out.

    Also I wonder if this new forcibly mandated munkbot is gonna keep whoring his "please pay me to use functions" crap? It was acceptable when it was a voluntary use but since it's now forced on us then that whoring should also be a thing of the past.

    To be clear, I'm not all that opposed to the idea. But munk's integration is jarring, it conflicts with the aesthetics of the game itself and the overlays block things. This was ok when it was a 3rd party tool. But since it's now an official part of the game then both the intel site itself as well as all the buttons and overlays should be themed with the rest of the game and not block/break any functionality in the game.
    Intel coordination/sharing is an important part of utopia and without it the game would be much harder for most people to play, especially on smartphones.

    A man built his house on quicksand; and endeavored to improve it. Despite all his many years improving it, a large quake happen, and the quicksand consumed the whole building.
