As of now, the only ways to drop a shield when yours is activated is by scouting/attacking someone which will put you in fury ( can't reshield for 15mins ) or port in a wonder forest which will deactivate the shield.
The problem with it is when someone attacks your hive and you want him to hit you ( trap him, troll him, hurt him, hurt you? ) but wanna shield up right after instead of risking to get hurt really really bad so you can't use the scout way which will put fury and you can't use the wonder forest way ( its expensive cause it cost 2 reloc ) cause it would be too obvious to port away and come back like hey!! it's me! But without a shield this time!
It would be nice to have a button on the shield to make it drop instantly it would make it look like we're AFK and our shield just runned out of time
What do you all think about it? Should it be needing items to drop?
