Merc Post: Upgrade or Nerf?

007Ben2007Ben2 Posts: 1,269
Since this unannounced update was sprung on us, I have been patiently waiting for a lucky penny, and haven't found one. I can deal. Statistics say it will happen eventually.

But what is more concerning is the near-absolute lack of ruby troops and tools. I can no longer find Sands village defence troops or armorer tools in the merc post, both of which I bought whenever avaliable to fill my walls. And the ruby tools that I do see are more rare than they used to be. I have access to Vet barracks 1-3, but instead, I am seeing outdated barracks 4-5 troops. I am seeing ordinary EQ. What?!? Resources now appear in even 250's or 500's etc., which indicates some of the random selection has been taken out.

So I ask you, is this really what we want from merc post? Ordinary EQ? Outdated troops? Res tools only? Tiny chance for a lucky penny? (bout the only credit I can find)

It looks like GGE has irreversably damaged their game, and we the customers suffer the consequences. God comm owners aren't happy, fire cast users could be happier, and the rest of us see the wrongs GGE has caused for some of their best customers.

    Okay, listen, we should get our stories straight, alright? If anyone asks -- and no one's gonna ask, don't worry -- but if anyone asks, tell them as far as you know, the last time you checked, everyone looked pretty much alive. Alright? Not dead.

    Nobody is going to space, mate!
    Marie Curie invented the theory of radioactivity, the treatment of radioactivity, and dying of radioactivity. In Victorian England, a commoner was not allowed to look directly at the Queen, due to a belief at the time that the poor had the ability to steal thoughts. Science now believes that less than 4% of poor people are able to do this.

    "Starting now, if I'm honest, to wonder if you're doing all this screen-breaking on purpose. Beginning to actually take it personally. You know what I mean? Like, it's like an insult to me.""Ohh...! There goes another one. There goes another one. They're not inexpensive. I'd just like to point that out. Um, it seems... unfair, y'know, smashing screens. You could give them to people. Instead of smashing them, unscrew them and, and give them to like a homeless person, I don't know what a homeless person would do, but uh, you get my point. It just seems... and you can't unscrew them either, they're bolted in, but... auh, just stop it!!"
    "No, seriously. Do come back. Come back, please."
    "Okay, I've decided not to kill you. IF you come back."
    "Aw. Just thinking back to the old days when we were friends. Good old friends. Not enemies. And I'd say something like 'come back', and you'd be like 'no problem!' And you'd come back. What happened to those days?"
    "Can't help but notice you're not coming back. Which is disappointing."
    "Oo! I've got an idea!"
    "YES YES! IN YOUR FACE! I GOT YO-ah, nope."
    "Fine. Let the games begin."

    It's great for me, I can almost always have VIP time as the majority of my missions offer 1 hour.

    Also had 2 lucky pennies (one I bought, one I didn't), lots of ruby tools etc.

    You're right, except for the lucky penny it got worse. There are more Premium Times now, and skips. Just waiting for pennies :(

    I'd say keep the new system. Just be patient, a lucky penny will find you soon.

    I understand as I posted in the first paragraph. Statistics are on my side. But the emphasis is on the second paragraph. Maybe it will get better at higher lvls.

    Not bad... I've gotten a few offers of 30 armored tools usually 10 belfry, 10 ram things, 10 boulders, or 10 wall/gate/arrows for defense

    For lucky penny, I believe you will need level 70..gotten 4 so far. Armourer tools can be found in greater quantities as well once you reach this level. For example, there is an offer of 20 belfry, 20 heavy rams, and 20 shields for 100k gold that I grab whenever it is available. Basically, the lower your level, the worse your mercenary post options are.

    What do you mean you don't get ruby tools and troops? there are tonnes of them in there.. bit expensive but what can we expect for 80 armourer tools or 40 demon horrors? Not to mention kg defeners. Lucky pennies are the best

    I don't get why is there different pop ups in merc post as its rule that all players should be treated equally so how cum someone get lucky penny and other did not get that this means GGE is giving advantage to some and treating bad to others

    Games rule and offers must be same for all its upon players to accept that offer of his choise

    Hope they make some changes in near future update

    As a lvl 55 non-ruby buyer, I can say that no, there aren't. Not sure if both or just one of those apply, but hey, #GGSlogic so you never know. Best I've seen is 10 KG defenders, and separately 5 ruby (not arm) wall tools, which were paired with 10 outdated troops.

    What lvl are you? And have you bought rubies? Just testing something.

    When you can find them lol. One so far.

    In conclusion, why do the Sands Village defence troops appear to be completely nonexistent now? Haven't seen them in merc post since the new update came out.
