GGEs Existence

It has been awhile since I made a post, stopped checking the forums after reading the same things over and over.

So lets get to it, how much longer do you guys think GGE will last?

It's the same things over and over, hittings NPCs get too dull and repetitive.

Updates hasn't been much but only adding things to NPC events and changing a few other things, I thought this was a war game.

If my memory serves me right, GGE said that they were gonna try to reintroduce PvP back into GGE, recent update just introduced this Nation Of the cup where Server Vs Server compete in events, if anything it only encouraged players to hit events harder. I guess some can argue that its like PvP since we're fighting each other to see who can hit events the hardest but that's still a stretch. 

Everything you need literally comes from NPCs: Kres, rewards, shop, coins, rubies, equipment, etc.

Many people are  tired of hitting FL castles where it gives an incredibly low troop count, which only makes us grind harder, and not to mention less food we loot from FLs.

I don't get why GGE is pushing monthly events every month, I thought they were suppose to be special, from what It looks like, there is going to be a monthly event every month, at this point everyone is going to be loaded with castellans and commanders. They should just have it for special occasions, once a season, or every other month . These month events can really benefit players who are returning or new but it just doesn't make the equipment unique if the guy next to me and the guy next to him and him and so on has it. it should be unique and should let other players know that this player worked hard for it.

Who wants to hit another player if they're going to lose all of their tools, lets be real, you can go hit weak alliances and be proud you hit a person with a weak castellan and come home with the unused tools or hit a strong player and getting the rush of adrenaline but at the cost of losing all of your tools.

It feels like after all of these updates, nothing has been made to improve PvP, there is only cons about it: less loot, no rewards, losing tools, fire-cast, tool burn, etc. Only pros of hitting a player is that you can get glory and honor, but who needs glory from players when you can get it from FLs?

I think coin events are good how they are now, the khan camp was something new and exciting but still NPC, stop with the NPCs and just go fix Alliance Tournament and Alliance city.

Tell us whether these events are coming back or not, and if they're then give us a date when we can expect its return, give us something to look forward to.

Looks to me that GGE is going to be a event game. PvP isn't dead yet, there is still a chance to save it GGS.

If this game is going to die in 1-3 years then what is the point of playing, give us a sign that change is happening.

We say all of these things about GGE because we care, but you don't care about us.

Be honest with us.

Listen to the players, we're the reason why you're here.

I just don't see how GGE can last any longer, if there is something that I am not seeing then please enlighten me.

    Yeah, I agree, while I still have a while to go in regards to improving gear etc since I'm only LL83, I can see how at higher levels you want to shoot ggs for the repetitiveness

  • Goodgame has promised to introduce a new PvP mechanic. Hopefully that will make more players want to attack each others. But they are very tight-lipped about this new mechanic, so we know nothing about it. But if I know goodgame then they will have ignored all our feedback on improving PvP and make a mechanic that no one asked for.

    Personally the game still has my interest somewhat, because I am only looking forward to the nomads and the new khan mechanic, but everything else about the game is the same old shit and I know I am gonna become bored with the khan mechanic at one point too. They need to make PvP more popular with the masses again, cause it's the only part of the game that is continuously interesting cause it changes dynamically over time and it takes at least some brainpower to do well in PvP. I hope that they finally realise this and make PvP what it once was, namely the main or atleast a major focus of the game.

    GGs new PvP mechanic is (on the UK server) allow Crimson Guard to multi account, have loads of shells in Crimson Sword and other fake alliances that they use, steal ACTUAL PLAYERS OPs using these shells, and kill off PvP in the UK.

    What the point of PVP anyway with the fl and bc have made it pointless, what GGE has to do to save PVP is either remove both of the events ( unlikely ) or make fl events really far apart then again most players have got used to the events and the month long events are terrible and boring try to attempt it and give up after a few days from pure boredom.

    Okay, listen, we should get our stories straight, alright? If anyone asks -- and no one's gonna ask, don't worry -- but if anyone asks, tell them as far as you know, the last time you checked, everyone looked pretty much alive. Alright? Not dead.

    Nobody is going to space, mate!
    Marie Curie invented the theory of radioactivity, the treatment of radioactivity, and dying of radioactivity. In Victorian England, a commoner was not allowed to look directly at the Queen, due to a belief at the time that the poor had the ability to steal thoughts. Science now believes that less than 4% of poor people are able to do this.

You could give them to people. Instead of smashing them, unscrew them and, and give them to like a homeless person, I don't know what a homeless person would do, but uh, you get my point. It just seems... and you can't unscrew them either, they're bolted in, but... auh, just stop it!!"
    "No, seriously. Do come back. Come back, please."
    "Okay, I've decided not to kill you. IF you come back."
    "Aw. Just thinking back to the old days when we were friends. Good old friends. Not enemies. And I'd say something like 'come back', and you'd be like 'no problem!' And you'd come back. What happened to those days?"

    "Oo! I've got an idea!"

    For once i actually support the idea to remove foreign and bloodcrows event... Instead, give us a glory event there you attack players to gain activity rewards with the foreign and bloodcrow sets baked in

    Alliance tournament, yes, but with individual rankings and rewards included.
    This shouldn't cause any impact on the money income either as players will be spending money for tools, troops and banners for defending and attacking. 

    Now i know that some people will get upset about this idea, but this is a war game, not a farmville game and somehow GGE needs to get back on track to once again becoming a war game as it was many many years ago.

    Real pvp battles really needs to become the main focus on this game again, as of right now it's all the event rubbish and repetitive gameplay that's making the playerbase shrink and drop.

    My loot, first week back: 

  • Hey guys,

    I've seen rumours of pretty cool changes coming up, and the Nation's cup really isn't a PvP change, GGS are looking to implement some cool genuine PvP changes in the near future.

    Angus

    I won't be surprised if its just another let down.

    What the point of PVP anyway with the fl and bc have made it pointless, what GGE has to do to save PVP is either remove both of the events ( unlikely ) or make fl events really far apart then again most players have got used to the events and the month long events are terrible and boring try to attempt it and give up after a few days from pure boredom.
    I honestly can see how removing glory events would make people hit each other more, instead of hitting some NPC, its considered a real castle lord but all events to me are just NPCs because you just end up grinding to get all the rewards.

    I feel like anyone can grab glory titles these days with FLs and BCs here.  

    No one would want to hit each other because of tool lost, easy, just make it so that our tools come back from losing a battle, we've been saying it for a long time now, if they don't add this to the next update then they're just idiots.

    What if GGE introduced this new section in the diplomacy department where you can add your subs or anybody part of your family and it will be called "Family" or "Kinship" and it will work just like a pact but with a few more features.

    Family members will have the same color name tag, kind of how a pact is yellow and maybe a second coat of arms for the whole family to share.

    Then again GGE can't really force everyone to use this new feature and boosting can continue. 

    Thanks for replying guys! Like to hear your thoughts about this!

    Maybe have software that detects when someone has 15k archers in their castle? Or look at all reps that give over 500k glory? Or something like that.  If you see a boost report, it is pretty darn easy to understand what it is just by looking at it.

    It was an example FFS.  But it isn't that hard to click through a couple hundred reports and permaban the defender and/or attacker on all the stacked ones. That would put an end to it VERY quickly.

    And who do you propose go through these BRs?

    To police all the BRs of any reported players/alliances on the entire server (and I can tell you, everyone would be reporting everyone based upon nothing but "I dont believe they can get that much glory"), would take an absolutely astonishing amount of manpower, and that's something GGS cannot afford to divert resources to. It's simply too expensive a solution.
