Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Make it so the game is enjoyable!!!!

    I realize this is the trend - games where you have to spend hundreds of dollars a month to make progress in the game and it is how you make your money. This game is plain awful. I have played it for a couple of months. I am unclear how some of these people have armies of over 100000. Actually I am clear. They are more than likely spending hundreds of dollars a month with your company. I have had multiple situations where I vastly outnumber the attacking force and then they decimate me. On top of that now apparently the second city artifacts I have gathered are now being taken. Even though I have almost all of my barracks at level 9 it takes hours if not days to train just a few hundred troops. I get it is a game and should have challenges. The problem is when you have people who are willing to throw hundreds of dollars at a game to win, guaranteeing they will win all the "contests" offered. it makes it impossible to enjoy. Also there is no way to "defend" yourself. No way to execute any kind of strategy even if you happen to catch someone attacking. I can get to about 10,000 to 15,000 troops before I run out of available food and have a deficit for any new troops I make. It also appears that that the storehouse no longer works for me. It is at level 9 and the shrinking powder is at level 8. A recent attack took my food, wood, ore and stone down to 250,000 each. I have no doubt that like the contests you make it so people who do not spend get screwed. If I thought even a small investment on my part would do something for me and not be instantly taken away in the game I might do it. The fact is I am better off lighting money on fire in my backyard rather than spending it on your game.

    You have basically set things up that new users either need to spend a lot of money or need not join. My advice to them is -don't join.

      You don't need to spend money to have armies that size. My main account, which I spent money on to level up my knights, can make 180k troops in a day. Even my feeder account, which I spent no money on, can make 100k troops a day. If your training times are that slow then you are doing something wrong. There are plenty of posts in the forum about how many barracks you should have and how to use them. I could answer the of the points but honestly most of them are just a matter of not doing the right thing. Some time in the forum or talking to experienced players could eleviate 90% of the issues you raise.

      I agree that the vast majority of contests will be won by the person who spends the most. That's why I don't even bother to try and win them. The cost to win them vastly outweighs the prize in most cases.

      I've seen a few people report their storehouse not working. So far I have not been able to replicate the problem. You could try raising a support ticket as only they can look into it effectively.

      In the end though if you don't enjoy the game then don't play it. However you don't need to spend money. Not spending money slows you down but that can be offset somewhat by joining an experienced alliance.
