So I was banned from the forums for a week because I talked about the other game I've started playing recently. I'm sure they'll delete this post, too, just because I mentioned that. But I just wanted to say that they've ruined the game, both for me and for others in our alliance.
We have/had two alliances, a main alliance and a training alliance. The main alliance stopped wars after rebalance 2 and hasn't resumed. It probably never will, because no one is really playing much anymore. No one has said a word in chat for nearly 3 days. Nexon, you killed our alliance.
But it's not just our alliance. How do I know? Because when I logged back in to check the game (hadn't bothered for a few days) I saw that I'd hardly been attacked at all. I wasn't even getting many medal-droppers at all. I KNOW that the activity levels have plummeted. You can't sweep that under the rug.
You guys really should have tried to listen instead of ignoring and silencing those whose games you've destroyed. I've sunk so much money into this game... And this is how you treat your paying customers?
Wow, the man above has been one of the more passionate advocates and defenders of this game during the last year and a half of its massive paradigm shift. Through silos, tactics nerfs, etcetera. Though I'm sure we've butted heads on occasion, considering the amount of posts we've both made on this forum, I could always respect the messenger if not the message. His passion for the game and knowledge about it always shined through regardless if his opinion was a polar opposite of mine.
Just saying, if you've managed to alienate a years-long enthusiastic supporter like this so badly in less than a month who exactly is this rebalance supposed to be for?
And another formerly prodigious and vocal forum poster throws in the towel as so many others have before him.
Happy gaming, wherever your digital travels may take you, Festivus.
Wow! That's a shocker Festivus! I remember we had fun war with you a few months ago and I respect your alliance and your attacking skills. I also love reading your posts in the forum. It is sad to see you quitting war
As a level 172 industrial with all of my offense units maxed, I would expect to not need anything other than my normal troops to 5* a level 110 enlightenment base that didn't have max stars. Use of my alliance troops that max out at global, 33 of them, I would expect almost all enlightenment bases not using Museum bonuses to be a pretty easy 5 star. After this rebalance, I threw everything at some weak bases and didn't get 5 stars. There is something that needs to be done. I played my son's base and he is 111 gunpowder. I didn't even beat a non active lvl 80 medevil base...so the rebalance is going to kill new players and you've read how the current big players see these changes. You need to toughen the higher levels but make it easy for the newbies to at least get to enlightenment and then industrial is where you toughen them up and used to the grind
Agree to disagree.
Industrials should have no issues with an age lower. Plus my Global can still beat strong Industrials.
You just need to work a little harder, be more choosy with your bases.
This sh!t is here to stay. Try harder or give up, your choice.
If you don't want to get upset don't go to the Big Huge Games website and see the workplace benefits these gimps have. I'm paying for it, and they continue to bend and flex the game rules and experience to demand more money to play.
I have a AA alt that is very very rushed, without university research. Level 160 without defense, GA offense. Still kill bases easily enough until ~1400 medals, whether GA or AA. So I can suggest dropping medals, do uni research, advance to GA.
Lol my second account is also very very very rushed! 160AA with GP towers , missile silo is the only exception. Barrack troops are all AA class though. I'm still trying to adapt, cause even without rebalance, rushing ages is a thing that would be tricky if you couldn't crawl and catch up.
But AA is the age where you could catch all those pending upgrades. Dropping medal will make it easier. So, advance to the next age, make it AA if you can. It's struggling there, but it's called adapting.
