Well, all associations like to get workers.
And it makes absolutely sense, to hire them. More profit, less waiting time, less building cost and much other benefits.
But some associations, especially the very big ones, do a "hire and fire". They don't really need the actuall workers, but they hire them, just because they don't want, that another associations will get him. As soon they got him/her, he/she will be fired.
Ok, you can see this as a kind of "tactics", but....no. No, this is not the way it should be.
Well, there is a really big reason, why.
A lot of this workers can be hired, because the association use a lot of gold. This means, the association uses the pay-to-win principle in its worst possible way. It makes a difference, if you buy gold to get a benefit, like more money, or to hind your neighbour, like hire the worker to avoid he will be hired from another association, even you don't need him/her. Ok, on the other hand, to hind your neighbour will be your benefit, too....but is it really needed, that we act this way ?? Wouldn't it be much better to kill this hire and fire option ?
My suggestion is simple:
You have a worker, you have to use it all 24 hours. So you have to think about, what will be, and what will be the best worker for next 24 hours. I think, an association, what is able to win a game round, should be able to make a plan, what worker is really needed. Just to buy some free tickets, win some money with them and spend all this money into every worker, no matter what it's benefit, is nothing, what should put your association to the top of the ranking. Think about benefits, make a plan, this should be the things, what count.
Well, maybe, if RN would realise this suggestion, some workers will get more expensive. Yes, maybe they will. But ok....is the worker for reduced building cost out of reach, maybe the worker for higher revenue for some goods will be cheaper...and there is a higher chance to get him, because the other association couldn't do anything...all slots are full.
And this is, how it should be.
