Now I’ve only played a single game to the “Mountain” event, but when I reached it I had divested myself of all of the items that player is supposed to use to repel the Mountain. There was no way to get any more of those items after I was told they would be important, and as such the Mountain invasion simply overran my town, even with a decent military. I had to dev console my way past.
As cool as it was to have a proper invasion it’s currently not a fun “progression gate” if you haven’t got the solution to it, and hours of nurturing a town go down the drain. Would be nice to see the event be beatable by a strong military (for the place in the game it happens, so perhaps 6 or 7 soldiers would be strong for that time) instead of purely the story method of doing it. Maybe I just got unlucky, and youare able to find more of the item needed after you’re warned about it, but if the player doesn’t get that chance it seems like an instant lose.
