Some interesting additions and upgrades there. Good job BHG. But, some really important fixes are missing from that update. #1 is Chat and Challenge replays. Both are not working properly and once and for all need to be fixed. The other thing is to clean up the leaderboard.

One more thing, we were told that rubies were valuable and could be used to gain troop cards in Marco. When rubies first cane out that was the case but not any longer. Most items in Marco now cost crowns. Overall, Marco has been a huge disappointment to many of us. Please consider more items in future Marco’s where we can use our hard earned rubies.

Thanks again, Dradis

Oh great. You’re going the speed up route like Game of War. Will this be the excuse to have 3 month construction projects for Space Age?

Sounds like some nice new features, but how about a release just to address the rampant cheating that still goes on in wars (SH bugs, god mode, time cheats, etc)?

Very intrigued by how the speed up thing will be handled. Sounds like it will be a matter of minutes/hours. Still, anything to lighten the tedium of late game builds even a little bit is appreciated. Another level for factory troops is pretty timely as well considering defenses and museum bonuses are catching up to them and making the cost/benefit ratios a bit rough.

Pretty exciting stuff all around. However, are we never going to get friendly challenges in a separate tab from chat? Seems like a simple thing to do to alleviate some of the godawful clutter.

And what level are you at, my good man or woman? Because in the late game there is literally nothing to do for over a week, sometimes two, at a time if you don't go to war. Anything that potentially addresses that is most welcome. Of course we'll have to see how this is implemented first. If these speed ups are something you can do with your practically useless gold for example? Huzzah! If, as I suspect it may be, it's just another roundabout way of spending crowns, then that's an issue.

''Luxury Items like speedups.'' Luxury usually denotes $$$$ in Nexonese. My spidey-sense tells me that this will be a way to chip away at the timers using a handful of crowns instead of having to spend hundreds or thousands at once. Sure would be nice to be wrong though!

i think the speedup will just be another version of the crown ship, in other words a way for them to get us to buy stuff with real money. in this case it will be items to make our things finish faster. before we had no choice how much to spend, we had to spend the entire amount of crowns to finish whatever building/upgrade in question. now i think they are giving us the option to chip away at the upgrade/build time without needing to spending based on how much time is left. there might be the option to get speed ups in events, which would be nice but the primary way to get speed ups, i predict, will be to spend real world dollars and at the same rate as we have now (300 crowns per 24 hours).

That sounds like their modus operandi alright. I can see them being tossed out as event prizes to whet people's appetite initially too. Let's hope it's something a bit more creative though.

Give them time, they’re still learning. Dominations is only 3 yrs old after all.

I agree with BLF. There’s no point making a daily speed up cost the same as 300 crowns. Might as well stick with what we have, there’s no point adding extra clutter that offers nothing different.
Lets hope they offer better incentives than that.

We can already speed things up by spending crowns - which usually cost real money, unless you spend all day doing offers. So I fail to see the point in offering speedups that cost money - we can already do that with crowns. It needs to use another currency if it's going to mean anything, preferably something we earn in-game, and not with a credit card. Like rubies, or shards. Or even gold/food/oil... If they do something like that, it'll be a hit. If it's just a sub for crowns/$$, then it's effectively meaningless.

I am excited about that one possibility more than anything, but I fully expect it to cost real money.

remember in the current system you are forced to spend enough crowns to finish your upgrade. so if you have 2 days left you have to spend 600 crowns. with the speedups, i think you can just chip away on your upgrade based on how many crowns you want to spend, like if you have 2 days left, you can spend a 1 day speedup to make the upgrade have only 1 more day. thinking about it i think they might try to make it worthwhile like have a a 275 crowns for a 24 hour speedup.

The fact that Tin Soldier skipped right past the archive and speedups to talk about the Domination bonus seems sort of telling; considering the tedium of long builds, starting in industrial age, and how many ideas have been tossed about on how to address them.

Seems if it was going to be something that doesn't involve real money they'd be crowing about it.

Time will tell though.
