Venom @ Australia - War Marshal for Shadow Lords!!
Best player on the test server
I cant believ GGE was this dumb....and I was short of time to get daily coin for task so now thats prob gone too...
well congratz gge
you have just introduced the most ridiculous special for whales only you have ever come up with
what are you thinking
your servers are in trouble and this is what you do to fix it
complete incompetence is what it is
your thirst for the almighty dollar will see you customer base shrink even more.. I for one
not going to bother playing when money hungry fools are at the helm
you do not uphold your own rules and just feed those who are destroying the game
job well done
The game has been getting increasingly worse for a fair while now. There seems to be no logic in the updates. Each update seems to cause more imbalances to general game-play than the one which it proceeded with the only aim in mind for GGS to increase revenue.
I'm total fed-up with the pay-to-win style of the game and dislike the formats of events like the 'Outer Realms' and 'Horizons'.
Personally, it feels like this update is to finally 'milk the customers dry' before the game is abandoned.....
The numbers of those who play is decreasing (on UK1) and I can only assume the same is true for the other servers as well- and it is little surprise why when the game is run how it is!
I have less time to play nowadays combined with this update certainly makes my decision to quit easier...
New record on UK1- (13/01/2019)
Firstly let me start by saying there has ALWAYS been advantages to those who spend on the game, lets be honest its the business model of F2P games its how they work. And I have been someone who has taken full advantage of this over the years.
But over time the creep of power given to people who pay to play the game has been steadily growing. meaning that steadily the disparity has been growing, so how has that affected my game play? well I have done less and less PVP to the point I barely bother now, as if i hit someone if i win its really not worth the grief.
I thought that GGE were learning their lesson, I thought that GGE were actually listening to players, and a few years ago it appeared at least to some degree they were. The removed the Multi accouning bonus scheme they were running laughably called a loyalty bonus. The brought out new comms that were available to all players although ruby players could get them quicker. THE FI comm the crow com mand then later the master SS comm wee the most powerfull comms in the game and every player in the game could get them with some effort. At the same time there genuinly seemed to be a push on shutting down botters and multis. And I was optimistic that GGE were actually on the same page as most players.
Then something changed. I dont know if it was the change in ownership or what it was but all of a sudden the direction of travel changed, the focus changed from that of trying to address the disparity in the game and making the game fairer to what we see today. Which is a game that is literally FULL of shells literally full of people using bots, and full of people building cheap ruby accounts one glance around the server and anyone with a pair of eyes and a little experience can see them exploding up all over the place. Its a game that every single change that comes out makes the disparity bigger and bigger and bigger.
Its not that i cant buy every singe offer that GGE can give, i can and have for many years. Its not that i cant build an account that can run long term with 4-5-6 million power points, without too much effort.
But there are account out there that can do it 10 times cheaper, by manipulating the crazy inactivity bonus, and the cheap ruby exploits, and for all GGE claim they are on top of this, it is still being done. Every day new ones appearing. this is FACT not specualtion. its not difficult to do. The level of cheating is accelerating at a huge pace. And you can see why, GGE are forcing people to cheat they are encouraging people to cheat, and who can really blame people? if you have £200 to spend on the game and by doing it legit you can get £1m rubies or by cheating you can get 10m rubies. What are you going to do?
And you have your answer the server is full of people that are choosing the 10 times cheaper option!!! And no i really am not exagerating.
But the very worst thing is the total denial that there is a problem, even when you present it to them, even when you show them in game mails from players saying i will guarantee you a top 10 finish in their new Flagship event the horrison, by selling points. NOTHING at all is done.
I genuinly believe the game is now beyond saving, the real fact is that GGE have zero interest in addressing the issues. The disparity is too large the gap between ruby and non ruby is simply too great, what could once be addressed with hard work and effort no cannot be, not even close.
I enjoy the competition as much as the next guy and have always worked hard to be the strongest player I can be, but seriously enough is enough. There is only so many times you can be ignored.
And then we move on to the latest "improvments" in the game. the ability to increase your attacking strength 50% at the click of a button (assuming you have enough money) add into the mix the ability to gain unlimited amounts of troops at the click of a button on the new wheel and fortune teller. and you all of a sudden have a game thats so far out of balance its not even funny. Add into the mix that the cheating accounts can do this up to ten times cheaper than legitimate accounts, and you have a game that is totally and utterly broken.
I genuinly dont know where to go from here. Its actually hard for me to understand how a company could get it so wrong.
A very good post @Philt123 (GB1)
I have had similar conversations going the game customer support route, I am told my comments will not be passed on to the development team I quote “we know people cheat” They also remind you account deleting requires you to remain dormant for three months, and they wonder why we have a server full of shells, given most people who leave the game hand over the account to the alliance they are in, all that happens is the account gets parked up, and as soon as the 500% offers roll in then it becomes yet another multi shell. Are GGE aware they encourage multies? Damn right they are, do they know the average player has to buy to defend this or to compete in an event, damn right they do. Will they listen to players customers pointing out the issues?
Not a chance, the latest update of additional waves not one not two, but three, made without any advanced warning, is there way of driving that nail deep into the coffin of fair minded players.
