Unfair equipment?

Baldrick (GB1)Baldrick (GB1) Posts: 4,948
It has come to my attention that certain players are being given equipment that is not available in the game.

We are talking about 90 melee/90 ranged/90 gate/120 wall/80 moat/70 early attack castellans AND 90 melee/90 ranged/80 speed/70 detect/120 wall/80 moat commanders.

I have been informed that these items are being offered only to the biggest spenders in the game, giving them a massive advantage over everyone else.

Can GGS please confirm whether this is the case, and let us know how it will be possible for the rest of us to somehow obtain equipment that even comes close to what is being offered to the ruby whales?

Now, everyone understands the meaning of advantage, but it seems this is a game breaker to me, as it is impossible for anyone to obtain items with these attributes, ever, even by spending rubies.

    I got a treasure trove the other day, and it was offering me insanely great equipment for rubies. I dont think it is possible to get a 90 melee/90 ranged/90 gate/120 wall/80 moat/70 early attack. Your info. may be wrong.

    YES! That IS Impossible!

    You are talking about 6 max. bonouses for castelans. THAT means 2 pieces cover 3 things AND 1 piece gives 1 and a half of the full.

    Okay so each equipment gives 3 bonouses. 2 are its main & one is its half thing.

    HAVE you ever seen a legendary piece with 90 melee 45 ranged? Thats only one piece. This piece should be like-
    Legendary equipment of the ruby whales+16

    - melee strength- 45
    -ranged strength 45
    -melee strength-45

    have you EVER seen something like THIS?

    I haven't!

    My info seems to be legit. I have been informed that this equipment is being offered to the super ruby whales as a thank you.

    This is not equipment available to buy in the game, but being offered directly to players by some other means as far as I know.

    I have screenshots, but as we all know, you're not allowed to post them on the forum.

    Baldrick's info is legit.

    Yesterday I saw a commander with the exact qualities you just described. Today Tresiel posted a Castellan piece which was just as good, same qualities, juts reversed to mimick a castellan instead.

    I'd also like confirmation.

    I hate to say it, but this is what looks like the death knell of the game. Other games I have played normally died shortly after the devs started offering huge bonuses that were only available to a few, and couldn't be earned in game.


    RIP GG Empire.

    If a moderator actually posts on this thread, I'll be pleasantly surprised I'm sure until I read their "We cannot confirm this to be true" or "These advantages are for the players who help fund this game."

    If Baldrick (no offense) isn't getting these offers with all the rubies he must buy... WHO DOES???

    well i think it is possible..... GGE used to give out amazing pieces of equipment back in the day. then too many level 70s got 90/90s so they stopped giving out..... if som1 had amazing stuff maxed out.... maybe unique from events who knows whats possible....

    I can add another +1 to the list, was shown a commander and a castellan the other day with the unique eq in question and they indeed have the potential when maxed to match what baldrick posted.

    Offering long-gone players 1 and 2 million rubies to return to the game.... giving whales completely out of scope equipment to keep them buying... bribing all players to vote for them in a silly awards ceremony?

    I'd say they are desperate for more influx of hard cash, but that would get my post deleted...

    So I won't say that.
