Gems

the championthe champion Posts: 270
Well, It's finally happened, I lost a battle all thanks the attackers gem activating :/ Which I'm very annoyed about since i would have won... To add insult to injure i lost 101 honour as well because of it :(
And the most annoying thing is that as players upgrade their gems, more and more battles with be won with luck rather than skill/strategy, which is utter ridiculous considering this game, is based around strategy !

    I have noticed a few battles lost because of that.

    I have not had that misfortune but seen something similar in a few battles.
    It will only get worse as gems get upgraded too.

    Sad to see.

    yes again another ploy by ggs to get more ruby usage and again it has ruined the game as a tiny part.
    im the sort of person who'd turn up the last supper and ask for ketchup.

    I am starting to dislike the game because of all the EQ and now gems.

    I kinda Think it might be a good idea with a bit more luck. After all, war isnt fair or just strategy. Alot of battles in the history has been won by pure luck.

    On the other hand I can agree with you that if you have spent time on calculating how much troops you need and just see them vaporised would be quite sad.

    I generally feel that if a lot of people are complaining about the gems being underpowered, and another lot of people are complaining that they are overpowered, then they're probably about right.

    And like kit (super/god kit excepted), this favours the active players, not the ruby players. I've got four level 5 gems on my main castellan that offer 5% chance of 20% increased flank strength (2 of these), and 5% chance of 280 KG support in the courtyard (2 of these two), and have never spent a ruby on any of my kit anywhere.

    i am starting to feel the power of those gem, when all equips equipped the same type of gem, the chance of either one activate is higher compare to just one. i have my comm equipped the same type of gem (150 TK support), and they activate once in 4-5 battles. :P

    #BringBackUniqueEquipment....Lvl 3 gem in its place is worse than nothing at all put this in your signature if you agree

    Currently boycotting rubies until the bakery update is revoked. A 77% inflation is definitely NOT reducing the price! I suggest you do the same.
