This is an idea suggested by a fellow guild member on food production and how it may affect troops.
Many players have gotten past the point where their food production is much lower than the amount of food their troops consume. This feature doesn't do much except cause loss in the holding of wheat by bans or other accounts. When I first started I had a ridiculous idea that it would affect the loss of my troops and cause them to starve such was what happens in real life.
Realistically if no food was out troops would starve and slowly decline without a doubt. This is where the suggestion comes to place:
As keeping up with the upkeep would be hard for players with lots of troops we have another idea regarding it. Not having fed troops or allowing there to be food out could starve the troops. This could bring down their DEF and ATK by a certain percentage.
ATK would go down a higher percentage than DEF , around 5%
Unfed T1 could go down by only 5%
Unfed T2 could go down by 8%
Unfed T3 could go down by 10%
And Unfed T4 with a staggering 20%
While it could annoy players it can also bring in a fundamental element to the game by making it seem more realistic and adding another strategy to Lords Mobile.
How will this be timed?
A simple timer similar to the familiar skill timer.
But how would this decrease work you may say...
The decrease would only happen after around a day or so without he troops being fed.
And how do I stop their ATK and DEF decreasing?
Depending on the amount of troops you hold you can occasionally let out 15k or 30k food out of your bag and let the timer restart and give the upkeep a point.
