Way to many low level castles in Crows & FC's.

  • Thank you for proving our point. Big players either shred through the bad castles to get to the good ones, or don't even bother with bad castles from the start. The way you put it means the latter is correct. While it's true that finding a 300 troop castle is possible yet rare finding anything around 500 isn't. The event sucks and you can still spend your money however you like but the way you're talking allows us to know that thise with deep pockets get some special treatment. Either that or you fortify every castle before spying. For short the event is crap and the motivation to exceed is minimal.

    Still the rubbish crow and fc castles prevail throughout the event, making them a joke, especially when considering they are a major part of the Kingdom League event. This means that many, many, players go through the event with minimal scores due to low glory from bad castles. You then see others with scores in the millions with obviously good castles, (good luck to them) which straight away send a message to the low players, 'why bother, I'll give this a miss, this event, its pointless, I've got no chance of getting anywhere, the other parts of rewards such as loot and resources are also not worth the effort, time, or losses.
     Its also part of the new relic acquisition system, but once past the first level, the glory needed to acquire relic equipment is way past the low castles level where you are only getting from 1-3000 glory pr hit, depending on your level, some even less, yet by lvl 3 of the quest you need 75,000 glory. Its similar to the way that the relic part of the Nomads is going with the only way to get and pay for the relics is through the khan camps and khan medals. The camps are not the problem but the khan medals for paying for them are, normal players will be lucky to get 2-3 lots of prizes, before they run dry, where as if GGE had included an alternative payment, players could choose which one to use. GGE, 1 choice is a bad idea and will limit players competing in and buying in that event.
    A request if I may..At least run an decent event alongside the crows and fc's, such as the Sams, or Nomads, as many players are looking for something else to do, when they are on, and outer realms doesn't count as a decent event, but of course its probable that then, players wont bother with Crows or Fc's.

    I agree with the original poster on this thread, far too many small Bloodcrow and Foreign Lord targets.  For the last few events I have only found one or two that were even 2000 - not much of a challenge.
    GGE want us to buy more rubies and spend more and of course I can understand that they want this partly to fund future game development.  But whats the point in taking up the offers of 2k, 3k, 4k Veteran Horrors and/or flags to match when you never seem to get any targets that you can use these on.   This is just making the game boring.  And yes I have used the option of dethroning but in practice this usually adds very little increase to the numbers on a target and quite often just makes it smaller.  On occasions I have purchased rubies but unless the target sizes improve I now find there is just no need to buy or use rubies now.
    My cousin who used to play and frequently bought rubies has now left the game for exactly the same reason.  It is getting very boring and unless these event targets improve I am likely to do the same.
    GGE often send out questionaires to get game feedback.  Sadly these questionaires rarely ask the relevant questions, so unless they start reading and acting on players comments in the forums I fear that nothing will improve, and ultimately they will end up losing more and more players

    This event is all about luck. The faster you sift through those crapstles the faster you get glory targets worth investing flags into. Ruby whales do a combo of insane sifting as well as fortying castles, which allows GGS to profit. as both need an excessive amount of rubies and troops. This event is absolute crap and for those that see the 7.5m, 10m, or top 100 goals as impossible to reach, for those players this event would only be an easier way to get glory titles without doing PVP.

    If every castle had 2000 troops in it more people may be seen buying flags and troops to handle them but that would make glory titles pathetically easy to obtain. GGS wants us to work for our high tier rewards, but to the extent of buying rubies. They purposefully make things unattainable so people shell out some benjamins to obtain them, thats their business plan and you cant blame them. They don't want free to play players to be satisfied with their game progress without spending. The problems is when you want your paycheck but want to please all parties, it won't happen. The game is heavily unbalanced beyond proportion and the scary thing is that GGS doesn't care. Where's Thanos when you need him.

    Well said.  "They don't want free to play players to be satisfied with their game progress without spending."

    Never forget that...…….

    all boils down to how many hunderds of less than 1K castles are you willing to hit and plump up with flags for the chance of getting 1 castle with 2K all D or better?

    each player has their own 'what's in it for me?' and will answer differently.   

    since I have a very low tolerance for spinning my wheels for hours on end, the event is easily skipped or played very lightly at best

    Hmmmm I was merging some threads that all discussed the same topic and I've potentially deleted some. My apologies for that. Anyway we are still conducting a review of Aliens and Bloodcrows and hopefully I'll have something to report on soon.

    Speaking of merging, can you get rid of the stickiness on all of those old announcements?  If I go to recent discussions there's at least a couple of pages of them to scroll through.

    it's not that hard to reach the 10 million points on the glory if you know how to do it without spending a fuortune...... I do it all the time..... it only takes some effort....... sure....... we all get a load of low castles.... but... if you do your best ( and no I ain't gonna tell how to do it) it's easy enough..... usually I get to the 10 million mark within 2 days... sometimes faster....... without buying rubies
    It's like I tell my alliancemembers....... hit some castles instead of complaining how bad they are..... and figure out the reinforcement/banning options

    @bernhardt (US1) some of those are from the technical assistance section and are important. I'll try to unsticky stuff as I go.

    Thanks Crom.  It will be appreciated by many besides me I'm sure.
  • GGE why do players in the top 100 get the best castles. In the current event I haven't seen on Castle over 700, yet when try to boost it get a worse one. Also spending rubies to boost only get 200 more why the rip off. Why is it you say you want a fair game but a ruby spending person gets all the glory. A scam I think making us spend then rip off lower lvl players.

    people in top 100 might don't get better castles, but these are generally better players and hit fls more, therefor they get more castles and more chances of getting big castles.


     
    Current might with atleast 24 hours of food
  • Step 1) Don't hit them.

    Step 2) Wait for GGE to fix this event

    Step 3) Grow old waiting for GGE

    Step 4) Die

    8m? wish it was that easy all the time. last bc/fl top person had over 50m and i'm on AU1 which is one of the smaller servers. hate to find out what its like on the bigger servers

    Probs plays too much gge lol but while I still enjoy stuff ingame will continue to play. Some current updates are annoying me lol. gge just making it harder to compete as a non ruby player. 2nd most might points in the alliance and aiming for higher lol. A might points freak who loves having more might points and tries to hold too many troops sometimes lol so up too late feeding them.

    The BC/FC event will eventually drive all players away. It is the most utterly boring no challenge event in the game. Pointless. Repetitive. Tedious. Yawntastic.

    Lol no I didnt won just get top 15 maybe and that was one of the worst events I ever played, literally castles with 300 troops etc. I guess few whales get 30-40-50 Mil too on top places.
