I play on XBOX One. It would be nice to have a button to decline any/or all of the 4 tasks on the task bar. The penalty could be a 24 hour wait for the next cycle to be given a new task(s).
Why? Some of the troop tasks (3 Pridelands troops, for example) might not apply. I have 2 tasks on my list right now where I do not have enough troops to perform the given task, and they stay there indefinitely, preventing the opportunity to try out something that is possible.
For many players, even if a task is possible to complete, it might completely work against their game strategy. Levelling up trrops for a kingdom just to complete a task wastes valuable souls that could have been used to level up the player's primary teams. And if the player doesn't complete the task...he is stuck with it FOREVER.
I strongly suggest either giving the option of declining a task OR if a player has not made any progress on a task (still sitting on zero) after a week, then resetting that task to a new one so the player is not locked into that task indefinitely.
