    i think most of us have accepted the fate of the lucky pennies, it's sad that they're gone but they were removed years ago, we can farm rubies anyway

    Yeah, but to see them being added back, for the buyers only is like a apple you in our faces. The only ones who don't 'need' the 2000 extra rubies are gonna get them.

  • Less pop ups but you spam my inbox with offers, prizes have gone down the drain, gifts are gone unless you spend...You took away all the good stuff. Depressing.

    Seems like a good month to me. I'll be interested to see what happens with the pop-ups. If Goodgame Studios doesn't make as much money they're likely to bring them back.
    @Breor (US1)  Would LOVE to hear from the Guy you interviewed recently on the Cluster that is the BtH Event.

    As for the Update, it looks like the best one I have seen in a long time.  Why?  They are not doing too much.

    Less really can be more...……..
    Good night.
    Sleep well.
    I'll most likely kill you in the morning.



  • Nice.
  • Well this came from nowhere and its really really nice surprise ! 

  • Getting rid of the popups might actually be enough for me to get back into the game

    This is the most positive update ive seen in a long time. Thank you for listening to your players. My only complaint is how long it took, but im glad it finally happened.

    Oh well, looks like we can't please everyone!

    Yes thats the reality of the situation. Though we strive to strike a balance.

    Loss pop ups has to be a good thing I was playing the other night and just thought what a joke my screen was.  All the left hand side of  the screen completly covered in event icons, Kingdom league, Berri, beyone the horrison, end the collector thing.

    Then the same down the centre of my screen with all the offers.  There was genuinly not all that much space to actually play the game.  

    Total insanity,  both in the sheer number of events running at any one time,  and the placing of offers right in the middle of the playing environment.  Would you watch a film or a tv program where there was adverts right smack bang in the middle of your screen the whole way through ???

    So i am very glad to see you have listened to the feedback.  Lets hope its effective at clearing up the screen a little.

    Also I like the scrapping of the architect / researcher.  I understand their purpose was to slow down the development of players, however many players have long since upgraded these areas, and now all its doing is slowing down those players that are trying to catch up.  So good move.

    The tutorial idea isnt a bad one,  as the game is actually very complicated now, I havent done it for a few years now, as i really wouldnt reccomend this game to anyone given the lack of enforcement in the rules of the game.  And also the horrible attitude of the powers that run the game.  Ie Money first, second and 3rd nothing else matters.  But when I did used to reccomend the game to friends and to try and bring new players into the game, most of them found it difficult to play, and confusing at the start, and its got a lot more complicated since then.

    The reality tho is I havent actually come accross a genuinly new player to this game in YEARS!  I am not sure what your stats show, but the only people that seem to be joining this game, are either old players returning to the game, or existing players starting new accounts to benefit from the cheaper pricing available that GGE refuses to address.  I honestly havent really come accross a properly new player in a very very long time.  And if a new player does join the game, they are normally handed one of the fully built high level accounts that are just floating around the game.  Used as shells / multis or used to rotate activity to make sure they can get cheap rubies etc.

    But get your game right, and I have no doubt that new people will start playing it again, so IF you ever do that, I have no doubt the tutorial will be very usefull.

    FINALLY! Less pop ups and more time skips! GGS are listening to us for once? 
    good start indeed :)   now from less to none pop-ups :)   but GGS     THX

  • basically a good update, the only thing I don't like is about the lucky pennies. Why would only subscribers be the only ones to benefit those pennies?It would be way more balanced if we just get those pennies back in to the mercenarypost or as rewards, that way everyone would have the chance to have those pennies again

  • I would spend less time on items like this and more time on keeping the system up (short downtime today?  how do you define short?) and the screen from turning white while the game is running.

    Most changes are good but why add Lucky pennies to the subscription
    make them available in the shop and make the game more attractive
    I will never subscribe and feel still be robbed to build and upgrade a useless wishing well.
    Why not subscribe? first of all the subscribtion does not work for me and GGS is not willing to look into it.
    and second, I may have some money to spend on the game but definately not every month in a subscription
