I can see Barrage evolving into an ''area-effect'' artillery strike especially in Cold War age, this is how Nexon could buff it.
Why is ''nerfing'' always the answer? (to the questions no-one ever asked??)

500 crowns as compensation for a loss of 133 medals due to "friendly" challenge bug?
Common, Nexon, that's a punch in the face, not an appropriate compensation!

New decision about increasing space of sabotage and protect tactics was the worst decision I've ever seen!

Other tactics in my age are totally useless!

I'm in Gunpower age and from "Active Allies1" alliance, and normally I used 3sabotage and 1protect tactics for my attacks... but now I can only train 2sabotage or 1sabotage and 1protect tactics!
means my tactic capacity became half!

It's very very unfair! it is intolerable!
​​​​​before this crude decision it was hard to get 5* from a tough war base at the same age, but now it's totally impossible!
We migrated from Supercell to here due to their politics from their economic abuse decisions, and now seem it's time to migrate to another company!

After all, I'll challenge the determiner of this crude decision, if he could even get 4* from my war base with the same age troops and tactics then I'll deeply apologize to the game developers and keep playing the game!

Stronghold troops will spawn when destroyed? So we got all these armies from the Power plant event and they all will be wasted if left there? I really hope not. Tactics ballance is not acceptable. I thought this was going to be my game to play with my friends and colleagues. I guess not. Greed always spoil everything, isn't it?

I have been playing for a bit and have never seen a need to post in these forums but after the last update i thought i needed too. Im a ftp player and just hit gunpowder age. I read that the tactics change was made to help late game but its also hurting early game. I havent upgraded my tactics building yet so i was able to bring 2 sado 1 protect to wars. Now i have to upgrade my tactics buiding for 1.5 mil food to be able to do the same thing. I know thats not alot for the big players but it is for me. So i spend 1.5mil to get back what i had before the update.. How is that an upgrade. Why hurt the lower players to balance put end game players???

My 2nd issue is war match making. I think this needs to be reprogrammed from the ground up. We just had a war where the other team sandbagged 4 low lvl players who didnt even attack in the war so their top 11 could 5 star all of our bases. This update does nothing to help this unless it's a tie? That makes no sense since their is no way for us to tie them.

Please fix match making for wars and think about the low level players before make sweeping changes for end game people. Now i have to upgrade a building just to get back what i had before your update.

Now i may be one of few on here posting this but im sure there are many more feeling the same way.

You have a great game that we want to continue to enjoy but remember with so many apps out there you will lose a player base willing to move on to a similar game.

No, stronghold deploys troop tactics that have been donated by allies to your war base only. Doesn't affect regular town base, and doesn't affect the troops that you own.

For now the update is quit ok...however one thing has to say....the tactics how it is now is really sucks. I choose when the Korean came for the Korean because of the extra tactic. Now the tactic settings has changed is to choose Korean no longer interest. This is really a bad dissension!
