Would be the day when we would get an announcement about an event in which we could get just one (1) expansion as a reward.

Are we going to get the Genghis Khan Event after the Summer Event or are we not getting it at all?
Well, considering how laughably stupid-awful the event was on beta... lots of forced sector & province clearing, and the so-called "reward" being a flaming pile of rank rodent gak, perhaps this means that Inno is re-doing the whole quest line & will make it 'not suck'?!

For those who don't follow beta at all and/or use the wiki site, the event basically;
1. had forced sector clearing AND ended with a forced "gain control over a province" quest. (ie: no options, you *must* waste your c-map!)
2. the 'reward' is a nerfed Tiger's Den.
Yep, that's right! Genghis bloody Khan, has a building that gives... Defense!!lol:?
And a sucky one at that, as it only gives 3% def from iirc, Colonial down, 4% from Industrial through who knows? and doesn't hit 5% until the last couple of ages...

So yeah, perhaps just as happened with the big rebalancing of the Summer event due to the entirely 110% negative feedback on beta, Inno is again listening to the players and entirely re-doing the quest line.

I would think that it can’t be plundered when motivated therefore if plundered when not motivated will only return Coins.
Yes, that's correct.
Like the other recent offerings, The Ship is basically 'plunder-proof' since none of the important bits can ever be plundered. ;)

What! I figured it would be plunderable like the palaces. This kinda sucks.
The Palaces can’t be motivated and that is why they can be plundered, up till now no motivated building can be plundered and (Edit) as far as I know the only two buildings that can’t be motivated and can’t be plundered are the Wishing Well and the Fountain of Youth.

True I always tend to forget the Gong of Wisdom and the Victory Tower. Seems like buildings which automatically upgrade to the current Era can’t be plundered even though these buildings can’t be motivated.

and AF and OF harbor.
Also true but if we take these buildings into consideration we should also include The Tavern (Edit : 'and the Town Hall'). Personally I don’t consider these buildings as standard buildings because these buildings are mandatory.

I think the Gong & VT's are 'safe' because they're classified as decorations, vs. being classed as 'residential building' (ie: Palace + East & West Towers), or 'production buildings' (ie: Bazaar, Terrace Farm, Sunken Treasure, etc...)

Also, sadly, military buildings can't be plundered either! :(
(imagine how nasty the game would get if that was possible?!)

Why do you think the Gong of Wisdom and Victory Tower are classified as decorations?
These produce Forge Points and/or only Medals and don’t provide happiness whilst standard decorations only provide happiness.

Ha Ha Ha …………. That can never happen but if it did I think it could be disastrous for some players! On those lines Alcatraz should also become plunderable ……….. that would create havoc!

If we carry on changing the buildings current status all buildings will become plunderable and instead of “Forge of Empires” we will have “Forge of Devastation”.
