Rubies and such
Rubies for example. Some things in this game should not have to cost rubies to have. They should costs coins. The only thing you spend the coin itself on is war and making soliders and perhaps some other thing or two but that shouldn't just be it. It should not costs rubies to...
Changing The Coat of Arms: Your coat of arms has no effect on gameplay whats so ever. So WHY in the world does it cost 2500 rubies to have it changed? It should be free, simply costs coins, of if it MUST costs rubies it shouldn't be THAT many rubies. Perhaps it costs 5 rubies to change?
Make Building Production Faster
*Correct me if im wrong, but when people walk out of buildings with a little dialogue bubble over their heads with wood, stone, or money in them, are they stealing supplies? Im not sure, the game never really explains this, but there is one thing I DO know. Citizens build the buildings of the city, and I'm sure they'd work much faster if they were paid coins for their efforts (that tax money has to come from somewhere). There should be an "Entice Workers" option in which gold can be used for faster production. Once again, rubies should not be neccesary for this.
Ending Tax Collecting Early That should not costs anything at all. Period.
Bribing the Tax Collector The reason your money goes missing if you aren't there fast enough to get it plain as day (if you're a moron though, the answer is: HES TAKING IT WHILE YOU'RE GONE) so WHY would we give him the more valuable rubies in return for the more useless coins? Admins, do you honestly think we're that stupid?
Rubies to Gold/Vice Versa
I notice theirs a little guy who flits around and appears from time to time offering you this, but in truth, converting should be avalaible all the time. And shouldn't be one sides either.
Renting Slots Renting? Why not buying so I'll never have to rent again? It's MY castle. Why am I renting things in my OWN castle? Thats like owning a house and not being able to go in certain rooms unless I 'pay' to go in them -- it's stupid and annoying. Renting things as a whole should just be gone. Units, Buildings, just no. Either give it to me to keep or get it away from me.
The King's Banner I don't understand why I have to buy this to show I support you all. My money doesn't prove my loyalty, my time online an activity does however. On the same hand...there s nothing scary about the banner i have not rimmed with gold and ticked with a little feather. Just...what?
Things actually deserving of rubies are
: Although it should NOT costs that much.
Special Units: As in War Units. The marauder for example, but again, too expensive.
* A Royal Gaurd Would be nice. They'd be like city gaurds, only they'd stay inside the keep and gaurd the player. In adition to that, a castle should not fall to ruin unless it's leader is destroyed by a Robber Baron Castle or Another Player, and upon destroying that player, the opposing player should get a hefty sum of honor/glory and take EVERYTHING that player had so it won't go to waste -- that means Rubies, Gold, ect.
Conclusions: The GoodEmpire Studio is making no secret at all that they want money. And of course they do, we all do, but must they be so painfully OBVIOUS about it? They are being inconspicious at all and it makes me develop a distate for them. At every turn, every time you log on it's just "RUBIES HALF OFF COME GET THEM" "THIS COST [INSERT NUMBER HERE] RUBIES" "YOU DONT HAVE ANY RUBIES. COME BUY SOME." And it's so annoying and just makes me NOT want to buy anything. If I WANT to buy rubies, then I will, not when you yell at me to get some. Jesus.
