GGE will not change and US1 server thoughts
First thought is that you all need to understand that GGE is not going to change no matter what you all say 99% of the time.
The game used to be fun but once GGE saw how they could get $ from events that was the path they would take. So of course more and more events came and has been on a repeat cycle for years. Along with the events more and more pop ups for buying opportunties of course happened.
It has been 2 years with nothing really new added for interest. Only thing new is alot of bugs. ShapeShifters is ok at best but still serverely flawed.
Also most of side stuff like Blade Coast has been removed because of so called bugs. Well there is no bugs people. It is that these side events did not produce any real $ for GGE.
Bugs is just a easy way for GGE to kill something.
So do not expect any of them back. It's just not going to happen. It's not even on there roadmap if they even have one of them. I am not sure they are even really working on the HTML5 recoding.
As for the US server, like other servers it is on a slow death sprial. You can track the numbers and it goes down bit by bit most months on active users. If you could remove the alts and multis it would look not healthy at all.
Only thing keeping it going is the top 10 - 15 alliances and their rubie buying. Well good for them and I wish them well on there 20th or 30th Nomad or Sami deco.
But with the way the top are killing off both good and some marginal players they will at some point have to go after each other.
The only reason neither KoN or Misc side won the never ending war is you had stubborn rubie buyers vs other stubborn rubie buyers. It was a no win for either side after about 1 year. They were just willing to buy more and more troops or such.
As for me once I hit HoL 550 I am done. I treat this "game" like any other. There is a endpoint and HoL 550 is it. Going from LL 551 to 800 really gets you nothing.
In case you wonder why it is taking me so long to get to 550 it is that I am a very very little rubie buyer. I have spent about $125 total in 6 years and that seems a fair number for this game. I am sure they will not miss my $20 a year much.
So good luck to all and I will go under long term bird with the rubies I earned over the years working the towers and such. I may check in every 4 or 6 months to see what "Exciting New" stuff has been added. If it's nothing I will not be suprised either on that front.
Good luck to all playing and remember this is a game, not a life.....
