    To me the restrictions put in place with the architect in particular were primarily put in place to slow the development of the top performing players, to stop them having level 30 grans everywhere within a week of them coming out.

    Now all top performing players have maxed out those buildings a long time ago anyway.  So who is the restriction no slowing down?  yes probably the non ruby less active player who is still developing.

    So what is that actually doing?  yes its keeping a gap between the very active / ruby players and the non ruby players, so the exact opposite of what it was origionally designed to do.

    The single biggest mistake this game has ever seen and there has been a few really bad ones over the years was the ability to buy XP.  Who came up with that i dont know but its a horrible and massivly destructive decision.  Overnight it gave players the ability to become level 800 in a week.  And yes I have seen it done.  Add into the fact you can now also easily buy all the types of res also gave them the ability to have a level 550 HOL also in a week.  Add to that the ability to buy all the best equipment in a week you can have a level 800 account with maxed HOL and all the best equipment in the game, almost overnight.

    Of course the spend level to do this is high, but it can be lessened by setting up a cheap ruby proxy account.  Its a multis dream.  Virtually no effort maximum reward.  

    Its a little late in the day to do it but GGE need to remove the ability to buy XP, that would make building new proxy accounts much much more difficult as you would actually have to play the game to level up.  Then all of s sudden it would be your level that became the bottle neck, just like it always used to be.  I wouldnt remove the damage the proxies have made as there are hundreds of them around on every server.  But it would make building new ones a lot more time consuming.

    At the same time it needs to add new levels to the game.  And make some of the new stuff only available based on your level like it always used to be.  Make gaining level only available by activity.  take away the ability to buy your way there.  And restrict the abilty to gain the new really powerfull stuff too fast.  

    But there must always be a way to help lower level players be able to catch up to the higher level player to make sure the gap never gets so large.

  • Seems like a decent update and a nice surprise for the community. I was intrigued by how the new tutorial was different so I started up a new account on a different server to see if it was better, however I was rather disappointed when I found I wasn't able to progress past level 4 as when it told me  to attack a robber baron and blacked out everything on the screen except the rb castle I was unable to attack it  as there was an offer  pop up overlapping the attack button and therefore I could do nothing else in the game. This is a true case how a pop up made the game quite literally unplayable.

    Hmmm just had 7 pop ups guess thats a broken promise already

    @Fordy (AU1) they said less, not none. 7 is less than 8......or was it 11 before?  In either case, still too many too often.

    they had promised fewer pop-ups and they fulfilled that promise by showing 1 pop-up less :):):) bunch of fools that we are players. and still those ridiculous icoons that make the game ease unpleasant and irritating. but luckily more time skips :)

  • I'm not getting less pop-ups ? i'm getting more - plus inbox being spammed every 30 mins with stupidly expensive offers - i've yet to see any relic equipment with better stats than the ones i've earned over the years !

    I agree I have no idea what GGE have done or havent done, but my screen is still dominated by the view of offers, my inbox is also mainly full of offers.  and i still get lots of pop ups.

    Assuming GGE have actually done anything (and i cant see it) its a bit like saying I am going to lower the water level in an olympic swimming pool,  and removing a thimble full of water.   Technically you have done what you promised, but your actions made no difference whatsoever, no one can actually tell the difference and it hasnt addressed at all the problem that led to the call for lower water in the first place!!

    GGE at its finest, get players hopes up they are being listened to then go and shoot themselves in the foot by pretending to listen then do their own thing anyway.

    I'm sure they changed something, right after 17:00 hrs the popups started to apear one at each time every 10 minutes. 

    It looks like some one at the HQ pushed a button and left for home.

    they didn't make less pop-ups they just spread it over the hour  . so it's NOT less pop-ups

    Last week i was happy with the frequency of those one string at .5 minutes past the hour. And still, i find much less special offers in the inbox. 

    I've been online the whole day, the real stalking started after 17:00 hrs.

    and for the new capital troops? KG got outdated like 3 years ago everybody across all servers work hard to gain capitals and pretty much earn nothing from them besides an extra location for who owns it

    Seems like everytime is Prime Time for GGS - there are no fewer pop-ups or "special offers".  One or two fewer an hour really doesn't constitute an benefit at all; they are still just as annoying, mess up whatever you are doing; and get in the way

    And the offers on screen are sometimes stacked four high meaning its hard to complete some tasks within the castle.

    As for the architect and researcher, how about making the technicus a permanent feature?  It's not like most of the top players need it anymore but it would help people lower down the pecking order who are still using regular old equipment

    I still say making the researcher & architect permanent was a mistake.  I get that it gives you more opportuniites to build but I think its homogenising the game even more. They were speed bumps on the road, a a minor inconvenience. now we're more and more on an autobahn going at a high speed but struggling to stay awake.. crash ahead !

    Was there an update? can't really tell as it crashes and runs slowly just as often and the offers still get in the way just as they did before so actively discourage me from spending my hard earned as this really isn't enjoyable...... but I'm sure others must really like it otherwise it would be madness for GGE just to keep on doing it :)

    The architect removal seems positive (so recognition where it is due) however suspect that change is fortuitous as the new login screen is the epitome of development/design not being done by people who play or understand the game...a level 10 keep, really.........
