    When it comes to games, there are 'features' and there is the 'game experience'. Whoever decided in their foolishness to go ahead with this 'scheme' clearly DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE GAME VERY WELL from an EXPERIENCE STANDPOINT. What they tried to do COULD WORK if it was done right. However, consider - a player logs in to find they cannot DO ANYTHING?! Isn't the game all about doing things?

    This is what happens when you mindlessly push an agenda on people without being honest about the overall vision. You push a questionable feature questionably timed and without proper support - like for example - making people not be able to put out fires - silly. Or not address the already questionable resource loss transport system in the kingdoms BEFORE doing this update or anything like it.

    Most players dont necessarily expect to get to the top of the heap in this game without paying money. They do however expect to be able to - with hard work and know how, have an enjoyable 'experience'. What you did, GGS - was mess with that. Generally when you do that TOO MUCH, you lose that player or even a whole group of players. Add to this catastrophe the fact that you are very very secretive about your updates, the timing of those updates as well as often specifics of how things will actually be implemented.

    Todays update is THE example for why the WAY YOUR COMPANY DOES THINGS can backfire very very badly. No one expects or suggests radical change from the way GGS does things to fix this problem.

    What IS EXPECTED is someone who makes update decisions to be FAR MORE SENSITIVE TO THE REALITY OF THE GAME - rather than go 'FORWARD TO VICTORY' on the GGS update train and say 'well fix it if they dont like it' - knowing the whole time its a half hearted promise at best - even if in inference.

    Lets not even go to the issue of the 'lets get people to spend more rubies so we can promise our investors that were making more money corporate *expletive* bandwagon' issue - which given the past year, isn't exactly being forgotten given this latest 'great update,lol'.

    MY ADVICE : Two Fold.

    First, reverse this update until its ready for primetime, clearly it isnt - especially the fires part at the very least.

    Second, you guys need less whipcracking and more 'whoa' on the reigns here, or your 'Christmas Slay' is going to go right off the roof and your whole game will drop like a stone down a long hill and be stuck there permanently.

    ok, no need for me to rant and rave about the update, you already have plenty of that.
    I'll just stick to facts.....level 70's should be required to use all kingdom resources for building, no one else should have to.
    Many people in my alliance are talking about quitting the game, it would be a shame because so many of us have invested a great deal of time and money into the game.
    I myself will give ggs time to do the right thing, but understand that my game play will be minimal until the update is changed. In addition to less game play, I will be boycotting all ruby purchases until changes are made. If changes aren't made, I will be leaving the game. There are many similar games out there that are advertised on tv every day, I'll find one that suits me if it becomes necessary

    Ok,.. so I'm now looking for a new game.
    I came to GGE from Sea fight almost 12 months ago. I had played Sea fight for 5.5 years but new owners wanted more money and started doing what I see happening here. Deja vu, folks.
    The programmers will continue to implement new developments which will cost every player a lot more money just to retain the status quo. this update will not be reversed. the owners are counting on the fact that even though we complain,.. we probably won't walk away from a game that we have invested so much time & money into. The next sign to watch for will be that when ppl have spent big,... cheaters will write scripts and codes to get everything for free,.. not that I'll be waiting around for that!!

    yea, I'm done with these people...they are obviously getting rid of people so they don't have to upgrade servers or deal with tech issues which as we all know costs money and they only want us to spend.
    good luck everyone
    happy holidays

    A constructive post....

    As many of you have said, the idea of having to use each of the unique resources in every world for buildings/repairs is totally impractical. The tax on transferring these resources to each kingdom is way too high as it is.

    However, I suggest a 'tweak' to this update where you use the unique resources for buildings (maybe repairs) only in the kingdom they are produced in. People will still buy these resources with rubies from the merchant. My suggestion will still make the game at least playable because in it's current state, things have stagnated.

    BTW ,...any chance of an interim response from someone in a senior management position with GGE. The players are obviously incensed and to stick your head in the sands while the game is in turmoil suggests a new level of arrogance. Please respond.

    Just a question... you have added glass and charcoal as needed in Green to repair a building that is burning. All well and good... but I am not in Sands and have a lot of buildings burning. The only option I can see is to spend between 5000 and 10000 rubies to repair buildings. This seems a little unfair (and by that I mean EXTREMELY unfair) to those of us who play without being able to purchase rubies. Also, how is one to aquire glass if the player is not in sands or charcoal if not in ice?

    It would be nice if you fellows over at GGE would think some of these issues through when making changes. It is pretty damn hard to stay in the game if it is skewed in favor of ruby whales in all phases of the game. I don't mind you giving new challenges to top players... that is the nature of any game. But PLEASE... could you at least make it possible for us poorer players to stay in the game? Or is it your purpose to make this an elitest game only for those willing to pull out their wallets to be here? Come on GGE... lets at least make a show of having a level playing field!.

    I want to thank GGE for this last update - at least it will be MY last as the fun is over. I have a job and it pays me to work. I see no reason to pay someone so I can work at a game.

    The issue of multi- player will become worse as who will want to see anybody with lvl 52 or higher buildings going to ruin. Everyone take a look at upgrading the Main castle or the guard house. Whoever came up with the resource numbers has more time than I do. RuneScape is looking better evey update, not to mention Puzzle Pirates.

    Sorry Stanley Milgram I'm going to think this through

    I totally dislike having to use coal to repair or upgrade buildings in green. If you are attacked and your castle is burning imagine waiting 2 hours to ship the coal (if you have it) to green and then the time to repair as well. That will be totally frustrating and cause many players to leave the game. The moment that happens to me I am done playing this game.

    I would like to suggest that everyone against this update should log out at a set time say 9 PM eastern and remain logged out for 24 hours. As I am on Pacific time I will be logging out at 6 PM tonight and will not log back in until 6 PM tomorrow if the update is still there I will log right back out for another 24 hours and do this everyday until the update is removed or a week has passed at which time I quit the game.

    We have players leaving the alliance to leave their account in ruins. GGE stop this crazy money hungry push you have made. Fix this before you have a mass exodus. I am level 70 and completely shut down for builds. Never wanted to be forced to build my sand and fire castles seriously. Trying to force people to buy the materials will force the majority of players to quit. Undo this crazy change before you gut this game. It can be undone as easy as it was done. Admit your stupid money hungry greedy mistake and lets move forward. You all may have just got a bad batch of drugs. Mistakes happen when throwing around ideas when high.

    get real people back this move with your feet and walk away from the game, a game should be fun to play and not a headache each time you join the game. even really good games with attainable goals only cost a one off payment

    anybody notice that you can buy charcoal and oil and galss from the merchant? So yes, the ruby buyers continue to have the advantage. you do not have to lose any resources transfering them, just spend rubies and move forward.

    Anybody think this isn't just a ruby grab by GGE? Bye-Bye. Been feeding these clowns way to long.

    Congrats GGS, you are officially the worst game makers in the history of the universe. If you want to keep giving big alliances unreasonable leverage to be god, why not just make all ruby buyers have immortal troops or something. No, instead, you make it to where taking a high levels outpost is no longer a good idea, as you can't repair anything! Worse, you can't repair anything at your main anymore because you can't transfer charcoal to GE without losing 80% of it as taxes. This means that once you get hit, there's no point of return. This is by far the worst update to ever hit the servers. I could write an essay on the long sad history of bad updates, and it would take a week to write. If someone hits your castle, then you get hit again, and again, your screwed. It takes so long to transfer that you can't repair fires anywhere near as fast as your getting them. I've noticed this affects levels 25 on up. Have you not noticed that from level 50 on up, repairs take forever and get really expensive? I don't like the idea of this being reinforced by making it to where you can get plundered for your charcoal at your main, then have to repair with what's left, if your lucky. For some people who don't have any hideouts, you can lose all but 1000 charcoal. And this helps us how? It doesn't. If one repair cost 10000 wood and stone, and about 1500 coal, think of what would happen. You'll have a single attack drive a player away. Is this your intention? To make the quit rate soar higher than it ever has? If so, just keep making like the freight train w/o brakes and rush ahead. So if you want people to say that your game is great, you will remove this update and bury it without a funeral, as no one liked it anyway. If you do like this update, then you are a huge sycophant that loves GGS as much as a dog likes there owner. Difference is, the dog knows when it's being abused. You obviously don't. And besides, the bakery update is STILL HERE, even after virtually everyone with a working brain said it stunk. And the level 70 update, that was terrible too. GGS is making the life of a level 50 harder by the day. I was one once. When the level 70 update first came out, I thought, OK, That's a good idea. Then shady lady showed up. I got a full on 70 5 times in a row for my target, but got hit by 2 of them saying I was their target? When did that become fair? Now they can do that and burn you for good, I'm sorry, but that seems terrible, unless they fixed the shady lady to give more even targets. In conclusion, I can't think of anything worse than a war game that promotes the idea that the rich live and the poor die.

    Always ready to fight for my friends.

    maybe u guys could change the daily tasks so that way u can earn the other resources through tasks 2. That way if any1 isnt in ice sands or fire they can still get them to build/rebuild/upgrade their castles walls etc.

    This update certainly takes the air out of any player who is not a religious ruby player and puts a huge portion of players at a significant disadvantage. if the update is maintained certainly there will be much larger dominance in the game however...there may not be many players to be dominated.

    just sayin
