maybe give large structures a massive armor bonus and/or a reduced teleport price while being attacked without enemy creeps around?

Maybe do nothing?

Every hero that's high level and fed can do insane shit. The only fair solution to that would be to reduce the level cap to around 45, and only allow players to use like 200 crystal in a game, regardless of how much they earn.

So the fact that it sort of breaks the game balance is no issue?

The whole point of the game is for one team to break its balance. It's called winning.

Very clever.

Flying/invising into a base and soloing the castle in about 30 seconds seems a bit unfair

You say do nothing but then contribute by putting out a great idea?

I agree with this. You let a hero farm, its your fault, and you face the consequences.

I miss 1.05 Gravel ninja'ing into bases and wrecking the place.

Still has nothing on pre auto-attacking Shardlings. THOSE were a backdoor.

Lunargent, with those, you could MAKE any door you damn well pleased.

Backdoor, front door, side door!

I still love a good old Sludgestorm though. Can you still load them into zeppelins? Do we even still HAVE zeppelins?!
