    The most important thing I would like to know about this update is whether the gem replaces any existing things in the game?

    This is what I find most frustrating about past update announcements. You introduce something and then we find out it replaces something else in the game after it happens.

    I agree, though if nothing is taken out it seems like the best update in months.

    The next update will contain the following features:


    In the Storm Islands, every alliance member that participates now receives a random gem as a reward

    A random gem? Random how? A random level between 3 and 7 might be worth it. A random level 3 gem type is a disappointment.

    Storm islands still sucks. I don't enjoy it.

    The traders of long term events will now also sell gems

    So what? You will probably put a cost of 1500 tokens for a level 4 or 5 gem. GGS has still never addressed the problem with upgrading gems to level 10. I think your avoiding the issue and your development team should be embarrassed for poor implementation of the gem concept.

    The price for the all-repair function now has a cap of 10,000 rubies. No matter how much your castle is burning, it will not cost more than this amount

    My castle never burns, but maybe if it does one day, wait..I will never use this option. My opinion is to buy the crane and just repair it the old fashioned way. For all the complaining about the crane, it makes repairs very easy.

    Some bugs have also been fixed with this update.

    What bugs? You mean the ones that slow the game performance down? The ones that make the travel arrows flicker? I wish.
    4/23/2014: GGS realizes that this player and customer won't drink the kool-aid.

    **the rule of 3** GGS usually gets it right on the 3rd try. Be patient.

    Be careful if you speak the truth, your post might get deleted by a moderator.

    Hey Community,

    The traders of long term events will now also sell gems

    The price for the all-repair function now has a cap of 10,000 rubies. No matter how much your castle is burning, it will not cost more than this amount

    The "You do not have enough rubies" dialogue has been graphically reworked

    The quest for joining the Storm Islands will now grant experience points (50 XP)


    1. I do not need a lvl 3 Gem, nor partipate in Storm, so cant use that update
    2. my Castle dont burn lol, I would repair with resources if so, so cant use that update useless
    3. In my long time gaming I'v never got the dialogue box for not having rubies, so cant use that update
    4 50 xp to join Storm? I been lvl 70 for a loooong time so cant use that update.

    there you got my feedback, enjoy waste your time with the update :)

    A Good update but the random gem which we will get for starting storm islands will be above level 5 or below it
    RETIRED FROM THIS GAME
    NOT BECAUSE OF RUBY UPDATE BUT
    BECAUSE OF SLAVERY IN OUR SERVER
    CAPITAL & METRO IS EASY TO CAPTURE BUT SLAVERS MAKE IT HARD AND THEY PLAY UNDER PRESSURE OF BOSS ALLY
    WE ARE PROUD THAT WE DIDNT DID ANY SLAVERY AND DIED FROM THE GAME WITH PROUDNESS.........
    WE FOLLOWED NO PLAYER MADE RULES

    hey guys
    I readed all the feedback and now I will just say a short thing:
    well , this update was totally useless , a random gem in storm ( I bet it is lower than level 5 ) it isnt worthet .
    the cap of fire damage costs , well , I think GGE knows it self that the big ruby buyers never get attacked so they don't use it , and the small ones don't use it because they lose a lot of money so its worthless , so now they did this ! cheep idea GGE !

    these where the important stuff , and the rest don't change a thing

    have a nice day all

    Are you guys really still pushing for gems and storm islands to be a "fun" part of the game? Gems make ruby whales overpowered and storms is useless once you get the equipment so adding 50xp wont do anything to encourage players to do it

    Return unique equipment! (This is like the 20th time I've posted this so if your not annoyed by it you don't read it)

    #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.

    it is only ur opinion that the storm island is worthless,since my alliance doesnt have many big ruby players storm island is the source from where we get the rubies

    Most this update is So-So...

    The one part I will comment on is the reduced amount of rubies to repair damage is ONE part of the puzzle. You help mid to big ruby buyers and your pockets, but not the majority of the community or the people that need it most, yet again. Resource players or players that will not or can not pay it are still looking at 2-4 weeks of damages and millions of resources. How about a reduction in the resource cost or the time to put something out... ;)

    Time and Resources for repairs from 100% damage.

    Main with the following -
    1- Lvl 5 Keep - 17 hr 22 min - 40,490 stone and 36,005 wood
    20- Lvl 5 Tower - 7 hrs 38 min - 13,294 stone and 7,303 wood
    1- Estate lvl 3 - 15 hr 19 min - 7,197 stone and 5,008 wood
    1- Siege lvl 3 - 11 hrs 20 min - 6,812 stone and 4,073 wood
    1- Defense lvl 3 - 11 hrs 20 min - 6,812 stone and 4,073 wood
    1- Encampment lvl 4- 15 hrs 19 min - 25,870 stone and 22,680 wood
    1- Barracks lvl 5 - 7 hrs 24 min -2,814 stone and 2,218 wood
    8- Guard House lvl 4 - 15 hrs 19 min - 22,870 stone and 22,680 wood
    1- Flour Mill lvl 3 - 6 hrs 32 min - 3,311 stone and 2,208 wood
    1- Stonemason lvl 3 - 7 hrs 37 min - 2,569 stone and 3,853 wood
    1- Sawmill lvl 3 - 6 hrs 5 min - 3,173 stone and 1,709 wood
    1- Marketplace lvl 7 - 12 hrs 14 min - 40,075 stone and 37,460 wood
    3 -Tavern lvl 4 - 10 hrs 53 min - 39,940 stone and 37,490 wood
    1- Research Tower lvl 2 - 14 hrs 14 min - 24,868 stone and 18,792 wood
    1- Store house lvl 7 - 8 hrs 25 min - 7,689 stone and 5,677 wood
    1- Dwelling lvl 11 - 9 hr 48 min - 18,421 stone and 12,640 wood
    9- Farm House lvl 10 - 5 hrs 44 min - 4,995 stone and 2690 wood
    3- Wood cutter lvl 10 - 4 hrs 10 min - 7,440 stone and 5,880 wood
    3- Stone Quarry lvl 10 - 4 hrs 31 min - 5,573 stone and 7,358 wood

    So approx. 60,000 Rubies OR 21 days 10 hrs 2 min* if you have the resources (842,695 stone and 660,290 wood) and catch it every time one ends or have something in queue.

    * Given nothing is damaged again, once started to repair the damages.

    Not OP do not require some of these items so repair times are going to be lower.

    Outer world specific -
    Loot warehouse - 2 hr 15 min - 1,934 stone and 1,524 wood
    Dry Storehouse lvl 1 (ice) -2 hr 5 min 5,751 stone and 4,829 wood
    Charcoal burner lvl 10 (ice) - 6 hr 6 min - 11,409 stone and 8,323 wood
    Olive Press lvl 1 (sands) - 3 hrs 3 min - 11,121 stone and 9,731 wood
    Olive Grove lvl 10 (sands) - 5 hrs 25 min - 22,438 stone and 18,863 wood
    Glass works lvl 1 (fire) - 3 hrs 49 min - 18,422 stone and 15,808 wood
    Glass Furnace lvl 10 (fire) - 6 hrs 10 min - 31,201 stone and 32, 265 wood


    Maybe that will come in a future update... Just a suggestion. People that see the time worth the investment of logging in and playing are more likely to buy rubies than the ones that see it as to much work to have to keep doing the impossible or putting out the same thing with no option to reduce it, so they quit logging in. ;) A person that does not log or play give no opportunity to make you money.

    Repairing burning buildings does require a lot of resources.... I wish there was a cap on the amount of resources it takes to repair burning buildings.

    With this update, they just took the 5.000 points reward out for the alliance in Storm Islands.
    Now it takes 15.000 points at minimum for alliance to get rewarded.
    Guess this was not announced!
    Is this a bug, or a hidden issue in this update?!
