Those 5* attacks will continue no matter how many balance changes they make. BHG these things really mess with your balance data, maybe you should work out how to remove these players so you have a cleaner data set?

Yeah, my alliance has a mix from CWA's to irons and nearly every war I am astounded by the inability of people to 5 star bases at their own level even with a full complement of troop tactics. Makes me feel old, really.

''Why when I was in your age we 5-starred uphill both ways in the snow without war replays, friendly challenges and troop tactics!''

Like many tales from ''the good ol' days'' it's only a half truth. When I was in their age Nexon was still trying to grow the player base by making the game attractive to free and paying players alike. Troop cards were rare, everyone was more or less on an equal footing with event buildings, coalitions and the tedious scavenging for NTG's weren't a thing, each tactic only took one space, and Nexon's 2 year compulsion to buff defense at the expense of fun gameplay was merely a malevolent gleam in someone's avaricious eye.

I guess I have no real point to tie this together. Please forgive an old man's ramblings. Still amazed seeing a gunpowder unable to beat another gunpowder without using cards, so this 5 stars are too easy nonsense seems to only be catering to folks at the very top, again.

Gotta give the devs credit for consistency I suppose.

To be fair whenever you try to roll out some update, there is always quite a number of users here always "thank you for doing a great job, cant wait to see the changes".
And now I can hardly find any users saying that to you. Instead most of the users are just telling you this is not a good change with reasons.
I believe that have already sum up the situation that you are facing.
But of course, if you really really want to destroy this game so hard, just go ahead.

Maybe we should rename the game from Dominations to Defenations...I thought the whole point was to be able to 5* people?

Anyways, my wife will be very happy that i'm not going to be playing this anymore.

Your company is going to die. I have mentioned this before and your response was to delete my post. Very stupid. Anyone who knows gaming knows all gamers are connected through several outside chats and forums you developers can not edit. Way more chat goes on in these applications then on your forum. Censoring us just pisses us off more and spreads the word faster. Back to the point I watched space ape destroy rival kingdoms by doing the exact same thing you are doing. They screwed over the player base for $. Instead of people spending more the gamers staged a boycott. Sa responded by taking away our ability to change our flags and ignoring us. So we ALL quit, the game died losing millions in revenue. Their short sighted cash grab cost them tremendous amounts in the long term. They earned such a bad rep among us that they had to release their new game under a different name, but we all knew it was them. So we all downloaded it and destroyed it. We let every potential new player know how sa treated their players. We diagramed their strategies for bilking you out of money and you know what, all that poison ruined their new game and it tanked before it even took off. There is an old saying the customer is always right and we are your customers.

Oh well, Nexon is known for killing it's own games. They killed Vindictus by deleating almost 50% of their players data base accounts. What is one more dead game for them?

Eh, just like Don Quixote, I’d like to believe I’m fighting giants. Even though I’m really hitting a brick wall.

I will leave one last opinion here: forcing people to pay constantly by making everything inconvenient will not work even though you seem to think that it's the only way to turn a profit or to get people to pay, but it's not.

There will always be people who want to pay for every advantage they can get even when those advantages are minimal and they pay so they can lord their superiority over the free players or the minimal spenders. If you take away the non paying and low paying customers WHICH THIS WILL DO! Then the big spenders will have no one to feel superior to and will bugger off to some other game where they can.

You want to compete? You want to stay in business? Apparently not since you refuse to address actual complaints. Don't be EA, be like Patreon, you know the site that almost implemented a new rule that was going to chase off about 75% of the people who paid them but then, and get this, THEY ACTUALLY LISTENED TO THEIR CUSTOMERS and cancelled the update that everyone was going to hate and even gave people a way to re-submit their pledges with a simple button because Patreon possesses something no other big modern company seems to: Common Sense.

So pull the water out of your ears, drag the big bosses down to the forums and make them listen before they screw themselves out of their jobs.

Personally If I can not find 5 star battles where I use minimal resources I will just continue to drop trophies till I find that sweet spot. I have yet to see a reason to move up to higher leagues. League bonuses and the time to brew necessary troops are both huge turn offs. I also lose much more resources moving up leagues than I do squatting low. League bonuses do not make up the differences

If you want me to climb the leagues and use all my resources then its a matter of time. I want to attack often during my day not once every few hours.
If I attack and I don't get 5 stars then I have to fully brew an entire army, and tactics which means I have to wait. I don't play games to be forced to wait. I play to play.


I can never maintain enough resources to have all the blessings and mercenaries to make this happen. Not to mention the ridiculous time it takes to regenerate a generals as well as sending generals out on explorations to gain resources for museums and troop tactics.

I have no intention of purchasing any speed-ups to make the game faster. In my opinion the developer needs to make the game move along faster by reducing build times or citizens as well as reducing the time and the amount of resources it takes to brew troops or regenerate generals.


I don't even war because the only thing war does is slow down my raiding for resources. I want to advance through the ages and maximize each age. War would just add the need to use up resources (troops tactics brewing etc...) while reducing my overall ability to gain those same resources (because I am not raiding I am planning for war and cannot raid) . My example is enlightenment age, without me fighting any wars. By the time I am maxed out on EA it will have taken me 1 1/2 years.... That ridiculously long time and it makes me wonder if I want to move up to the next age only to see that time line move to 2 years.... I sure don't want to be stuck in any age for that long and that would probably make me uninstall the game. If I add war to this equation that 1 1/2 years will easily become 2...

Decrease build times...no one cares about resource costs! It’s ridiculous that I have to wait 7-14 days to upgrade something. Clearing a forest section would take me 21 days!!! This game sometimes takes people on my team out of war for WEEKS with no generals or mercenaries. 😡

We're already almost there. We've figured out that it's really pointless to fill most SH in most wars. Just fill the top few defensive CWA bases, since those present the best chance to deny stars.

It's saving us $$ (and costing Nexon $$) on EAs.

It's a service where people can pledge a certain amount of money to creators every month to help them make a living off of art, videos and other such things.

just search it up.

Taking the ooomph out of the Decoy tactic is a horrible idea! Just after one of the best enhancements to this game (the watch a video for a complete retrain) comes some really terrible ideas here. I hope the development managers are taking note to this uproar from the player base. These are your core clients. Pay attention!

Nexon needs to go to work rebalancing times. Make it very, very fast to max out an account to global level. Defense and offense, all done for the age, from start to finish in 3 months or less. Then, when everyone active is operating at at least global level defenses, and all the new players get to atomic without going crazy waiting, lets look at the stats and see how much difference it makes to not have the majority of players with maxed offenses for their age, but defenses lagging badly until they hit atomic or cold war.

You could also then change the game so that cold war players don't have to be able to attack globals to have a big enough target group. That would certainly help out all the new globals.

Then come back to us to talk about other rebalancing. But just remember that the community cares about time, not resources. So when you try to mollify us with player friendly "improvements" to offset the annoying changes, you won't be insulting us by cutting training costs in half instead of times.
