    You people are idiots. Go ahead with this upgrade and enjoy your new lower membership. I for one will boycott everything that has anything to do with GGS.

    When creating a peace offering, Diplomats of an alliance (those with the rights) will now demand or offer a Tribute.
    The leaders are the ones who decide whether the alliance is willing to pay the Tribute.
    (Underlines added by me.)

    Are both statements correct? If so, how does that work?

    amazing with all these real comments you are still going to apply update gge, are you all dense of just plain ignorant? updates are to better the gaming experience and please your many customers. have you not seen the reaction and what your about to do? its obvious your greed has taken control of your ability for reason

    I must say all the people saying be more constructive?

    I get the sentiment but really we are talking about something that is absolutely not in need of changing.
    If anything its in need of tweaking (I think its fine how it is, but im not against trying minor changes) but im afraid the most constructive I can be is if its not broken....don't fix it

    The tribute without ruby and a cap? fine no worries...good Idea
    auto war? and ruby tribute to end war, at the same time????, well im afraid they give the game away as to the true intention of the update, which is fine, its a business at the end of the day.

    Well I have a way that everyone wins, GGS DONT CHANGE THE GAME
    consult properly
    allow us to vote on aspects
    give us what we want...then I will be spending the same , probably more

    and regardless of constructive criticism, rubys ARE money as they cost money so I don't like the idea of them being bullied out of people.
    if you could take a large amount of resource? something that would have an impact, but does not cost real money? that's different.

    But AS SOON as you bring that "fantasy" war Idea and couple it with money, you make it tangible to the rest of peoples lives, and it actually becomes physically (im convinced you could make a case in a court of law in the UK) extortion.
    I personally find that promotion of "mafia" protection racquet mentality very sinister to say the least.
    oh sorry it IS a WAR game...yeh well whilst extortion/tribute clearly happened in medieval period so did torture, sexual crimes, massacres, murdering of first born, witch burning etc are you gonna put those in for the benefits of "realism"?? of course not, its repugnant.............. and so is this!

    I think there should be more working examples of how this will work. I am not a big spender of rubies & I tolerate the fact that the game is designed for ruby buyers, GGE have to make money.

    I am loathe to just quit, as I have spent money on this game & dont wwant to waste it.

    "....Tribute is a percentage of the Alliance Funds, i.e. raw materials, coins and rubies, which one demands or offers in order to officially end the war...."

    Does it have to include rubies? I mean can you just offer a 1% tribute of wood? (nothing else)

    I dont particularly like the new inclusions, but in some ways - there is scope for white peace to bring relief to smaller alliances should the bigger alliance be willing to accept. There are fair play policies that big alliances adhere to - i.e dont attack burning castles, attack with 10 levels of your own ranking etc, is GGE banking on big alliances not extorting smaller alliances? I mean what stops any alliance saying we will steal RVs, we will capture active Outposts, we will attack burning castles???
    Interesting - if it goes the way some folk are saying - I will lose interest (not before I get to lvl 70 anyway) - lol

    I wish to join my voice to say this update is horrible. I can find NO redeeming factor here.

    I will add I find it hypocritical as well. GGE has a censor against "bad words." This was good until I found what they are. KILL is a "bad war" - in a war game they dont want you to say KILL. But you can blackmail people now. You can have someone - accidentally or on purpose - start a war by doing the GGE "nobility" contest that requires you to sabotage players. It is OK in GGE to sabotage. In fact, it is a daily task. But you cant say "KILL". you must find a better way to describe the troops that are gone - poof.

    How is "threat" for a word? "Blackmail"? "Abusive behaviour" you like that set of words? This new update promotes all those things - and then pretends to be a civil game because you cant say "kill".

    I will be joining those who are not buying rubies anymore - at least until this new "enhancement" is REMOVED. I challenge GGE to give a good reason these enhancments will NOT be abusive. I would love to know what your Producer was thinking.

    Insane. If the tribute and automatic declaration of war features are installed, then we are done. And once we've moved onto something else, we won't be back. Suicide, not matter how hard you try to rationalize it.

    Gameplay is a delicate thing - hard to get right - easily destroyed. Let history be my judge. In the meantime, I won't be buying rubies until I see the direction this takes.

    I suggest all players - NOT PLAY this weekend. Let GGE look at their numbers on Monday. And perhaps ask themselves why. Then possibly they will see this thread. And take us seriously.
