Foreign Empire - what do I think?

neil33 (GB1)neil33 (GB1) Posts: 1,762
The Foreign empire is here, and has been for a day now.

Many people are still confused as to what is attacking them, well it's simulated isn't it - simple!
Some attacks are overpowered and just ridiculous. Just today we have had (I would say) over 50 attacks, half of which contain demons and KG troops. For a simulated attack - that is annoying, and in my opinion a cry for ruby tools.

We, as players, have to buy rubies just to get access to demons, and you need a capitol to recruit KG's so not every player has access to them - yet the game is sending attacks of 1,280 of them to players, sometimes attacking the same player twice in the space of 20 minutes.

Yes, they're positives to this:
-Glory without the threat of retaliation
-Defensive training

BUT what about the troop loss, bugs, tools etc what are lost due to these devious attacks?

Now in my opinion, GGS have created this so people are fooled into thinking they are having a 'server vs server war', when in reality it's scripted on a computer.

Now, not every attack is large, we have had quite a few 50-200 men attacks - but I think that is to waste any tools, especially ruby ones!

Now, don't take this as a rant, but surely you could change it like an RB attack?

If they were to attack while players are on-line then it wouldn't be so bad - but to attack while offline and waste tools is ridiculous - especially when it is only a 50 man attack and you have your ruby defences up.

I think it the event is to do one of two things:

1) Make players sit in front of their computer longer to change tools when it is an automated attack?

2) Make players buy stockpiles of ruby tools so they aren't all used up.

Now, you're probably thinking I hate the event - wrong!

I quite enjoy the experience of defending thee attacks, and I like the free glory without retaliation, but I don't like tools being wiped out by what I would call 'tool cleaners'.

Please change the way the attacks are sent out, and please make them more random, one member of our alliance has been attacked several times wasting ruby tools as they were offline - whereas other members haven't even experienced an attack? Not very fair is it?

SO...I get conned out of rubies and support refuse to give them back. But when a ruby player does the same as me they get them back? This to me is point blank evidence that support and GGE don't give a fuck about us non ruby buyers...

    What level are you? they shouldn't be sending horror attacks if you're low level.

    92 XP from level 59, and I have had horrors, and assassins coming towards me, as well as KG. Not all attacks are like that but a good majority of them are. I had one earlier 850 macemen without tools:) Easy glory but waste of ruby tools if I wasn't on. Luckily I was even though it was 5:20 am like. That would have been 16 ruby tools for an attack that could be beaten without tools.

    What the fuck were they thinking??

    These stupid foreign attacks are not doing anyone any good. I(lev41) m consistently being attacked by a lev 52 computer player with unlimited recourses.

    I`m Dutch and i`m being attacked by Spain. Is this some sick revenge to the football match?

    To the developers of this game I like to say fuck u and fuck your stupid foreign invasion.

    PS I also didn`t receive the bonuses going in this event.

    You have a 20+ member alliance with strong people. The leader of your alliance is next to you. So, your alliance should support you.

    For small alliances: I think the upper levels should open their gates and send defense support to lower levels. Also I learned that if you send two separate attacks back to back, the second attack will be blocked. They need recovery time. When you open your gates neither get glory - but they did take alot of food because I sent all my wood, stone and gold elsewhere. Also nice of GGE to send so many ruby offers and for keeping the merchant at my castle doors. It could have been worse and yeah I feel like quitting too.

    You can't send your coins away... they can't loot coins.

    What do I think? I think GGS need to get their finger out - besides the fact we should be opting into this - they've introduced yet another update that doesn't work properly. Unless you log out and in again every ten minutes, you don't even know what attacks are going where. It's a shambles - untested - except on us - accept it - we are the testers here - GGS clearly don't employ any.

    It follows other awful updates - 100% spy reports not being 100% - tribute update. Sure - they say they listen to our feedback - but it doesn't mean anything to them.

    GGS - stop updating - fix the bugs. I don't need to hear it's two different departments - job demarkation went out years ago. It needs sorting. And when that's done, you need to work damn hard building a good relationship with your customers.

    I totally agree!

    The new update has brought loads of bugs, and I haven't received any of the rewards stated (even though I have enough glory). The hasn't been a time since the event started where our alliance hasn't had an incoming horn!

    Currently we have one member who has been attacked more that 7 times - they cannot be on 24 hours a day to keep changing their set-up and remove ruby tools.

    They should have an opt out option - which would save all the complaining as people who don't like it wouldn't have to put up with it.

    Yes - fix the bugs - and give the customers something that we want - after all we are the reason the server is running isn't it?

    Just remove the damn event. there is enough crap already happening in the game. Work on improving the game rather then adding new crap. Already enough going on. It is time to get real.
    omaster

    I am against all of the latest updates. They are full of bad ideas and lack of consideration of the community only of GGS greedy ways. GGS please talk to the Community before doing future updates and get their opinion on things first.

    Yes - that is correct! This week we had colossus, thorn, and other events. Then with Storm getting to the final days so everyone is trying harder there. They have introduced it at a ridiculous time, in my opinion, and I wonder how often it is going to be around. I would like it maybe once every 3 month for 5 days? Gives you time to prepare for getting 'invaded'.

    Any why not give us, the customer, a chance to chose our server enemies? Maybe a vote, for example;

    Your battle co-ordinator suggests you should attack USA1 or India1, which one would you like to challenge?

    Gives us a chance to chose who we fight - but I can see something going wrong there but at least it's a start at letting us chose something in the game which WE are playing.

    we have over 60 members in our alliance every member has been hit atleast 3 times it is ok. but wouldnt want to see it go on for more than the three days. the attacks are weak. but take away from time i would rather be attacking real players.

    Good thread Neil. I totally agree. GGE must remember there are many intelligent adult players in this game with expendable incomes, however they will not tolerate a blatant grab at their wallets to survive in this game. Fix it GGE or loose some of your most valued customers. It is not good business to annoy the lifeline of your income.

    Exactly. Its a great idea and with a little change here and there it could be one of the most fun events. Its already great in my opinion. They made do a thing where the leader can pick if the alliance joins the event or not. So that if they made it where you pick to join and 1 guy joined in an alliance joined the event. the other 64 guys cant stockpile troops on him.
