Re: Mechapinata High Command

In any case, it's still a fact that if mechapinata sidekick didn't affect the pinata count, there would be no mathematical reason for the high command. But it does affect the pinata count. If your aunt had balls, she'd be your uncle. But WHY does it affect the count if the purpose isn't to face hig...

Because otherwise the math wouldn't work out properly. Cheers! Kinak Isn't this enough of a reason?

As the numbers grow, I must be ready to step up my game. Since I'll be stepping away from my league to accomplish this, I must make it worth the loss of valuable prestige. Or, I have to get some more members in my league before I retcon so they can keep killing the league villains in my absence.

That's a pretty powerful option.

Re: Prestige Store

It would probably depend more on the size of the league. If there's only five or so members, then individual messages would be feasible. If Satan tries to send messages to everyone in PFE, though, it would be worth it to spend Prestige to send it as a single message.

On a side note, with any of the ideas that allow for multiple villains each day on a permanent basis, there should probably be diminishing Prestige returns. For instance, for my municipal protectors idea, maybe each additional villain would only give one Prestige, instead of the usual five.

Re: Leagues!

Since the bosses, at least the current one, resets after each day (I'm assuming), it would be helpful if there would be some way to know if anyone else has contributed to the fight without wading into combat to see what stage the villain is on.
