Military Hospital and Ruby Soldiers

I have just spent 40 minutes trying to find a relevant thread for this that is not 2 years old.  I am in total protest about the Ruby Soldiers not only being added to my military hospital first, but now I just witnessed the unexpected.  I was in my hospital, had just deleted Ruby Troops, I was adding coin troops to be healed when a battle ended and it pushed the remainder of my coin troops waiting to be healed out of the hospital and replaced them with Ruby Soldiers.

I am getting really tired of all this ruby pushing going on.  Let me be clear on this topic:  
I do not go into a store of any kind on Empire to spend rubies on troops.  I spend my hard-earned coins to train coin troops.  So why on earth are you putting the ruby soldiers that you have given to me in front of the troops I recruited with my coin?  I bought rubies because I needed them to upgrade certain buildings or buy things from the merchant or other events.  I didn't buy the rubies to waste them on healing the Ruby Soldiers.

All of the following are unfair practices by GGS and I protest them all:

  1. A huge amount of special offers and such.  We asked if they could put them in our mailboxes instead of on the screen.  They put them in our mailboxes, and left them on the screen, and also increased the number of these things.  
  2. The Foreign Invasion and Bloodcrows Events that give you level 70 castles that are pretty shitty.  And then you have to spend games tokens, coins or rubies to get a decent castle.
  3. This Master Blacksmith feature is ridiculous.  With the points given out the Monthly Event for each hit being so low, it is impossible to get even down the first page where the Season Booster is. 
  4. The new Kingdom League that gives you so-so rewards unless you buy a season pass for 17,600 rubies.
  5. All improvements to the game that require more and more Rubies to be purchased and spent.  How about some improvements for those players who don't, those who do occasionally but now have to purchase more and more, or can't buy Rubies?
  6. Changes to events that allow only the "Ruby Whales" to obtain a full set of some really great equipment sets.
  7. A large number of challenges going on at the same time which makes it impossible to master them all and the icons for the events, and pop-ups that fill up my screen. Like right now, Nov. 25, 2019, I have 4 Icons on the left by the Message box going vertically up the screen, and I have three icons on the right side by the toolbar going vertically up (sometimes it's 4 on the right), plus all but one of the icons has arrows to flip through the offers.  Too much of my screen is covered with this nonsense.
  8. The never-ending Sale Pop-ups that I have to keep closing these boxes and having these pop-ups interfering with tasks I am doing.
  9. And any more events that require the use of large amounts of Rubies.  It’s about time for GGS to pay attention to all the players.

    GGS said something will be done about this in a future update in their Roadmap for Q4, I believe.
    Here we are half a year later and no mention of it whatsoever.

    So, when I taunt khan I send ruby d and offense off for a short walk right before the khan hit lands.
    And honestly all coin troops are pretty easy to unlock and recruit. Elite guards are a little priceier, but coins are so plentiful and easy to get that cost of troops lost in looting is basically a non-factor.
    Furthermore, recruiting new troops is much faster and only a little pricier than healing them. If some of your coin troops got pushed out of hospital, big whoop I say. Toss on an 80k feast and keep recruiting until you realize "dang I'm losing sleep over feeding my troops" and then kill off a few thousand PvPing or something. That's my strategy anyway.
