I really liked all these new features and implementations in SftA. Congratulations and I have no complaints.

However, I confess that I was hopeful of seeing some reduction, even if minimal, in the time of improvements/upgrades, mainly for the intermediate ages (from the Enlightenment Age to the Digital Age).
I believe that the reduction in the time of improvements could help many players who left the game to come back or not lose players who are still active, but getting discouraged in imagining themselves needing 5 years to fight in the advanced Ages.
In addition to facilitating resources that are something constant in updates and very welcome, it is necessary to correct known problems and a policy that allows new players not to get discouraged due to the time to reach the last Ages, which are always what everyone seek.
Not losing players along the way increases the player base and that's good for business and also for the community.

Or a more interesting way to reduce upgrade times that could benefit everyone equally, but with more significant impact on lower and middle Ages would be to improve the request for help to the alliance in reducing upgrade times. In addition to increasing the help time or increasing the times you get help, also implement an additional help for training Troops, Tactics, Generals and Coalitions in the Blacksmith/Arsenal.

Thank you for the news on SftA and here's my feedback as a contribution.
 
Rafar makes some good points. Increasing player base is important as is maintaining interest for maxed players. The world war element of this game remains the reason most of us play. There needs to be more focus oj this from a rewards, leaderboards, tournaments standpoint. It has been year(s) since you had events that required World War participation and I don’t recall any improvement or modification to the World War interface in at least the last 2-3 years. This remains why most of us play. Focus on it.

Is this Legendary Recruitment for Council?
 
You need to cut upgrade time , not upgrade cost.
I hope you will do that soon.
I’d like to second Tedi’s suggestion here. Make “Rush” and actual “Rush” by “rushing” the time needed for upgrades. Diminished resource cost really is meaningless beyond about Gunpowder age.
 
Also please consider making a season of Triumph entirely dependant on World War attacks, defends, etc. rather than multiplayer.
 
Additional Upgrade Levels 11.10 and beyond will not be included in this year’s SftA , does this means barracks troops upgrades are included or no?

I think you rush cus you can upgrade your TC in an instant.

Any additional levels we added into 11.10 and any that may be added beyond that during this year's SftA period will not see a discount. Info to drone will be instant yes.
 
@Harlems369th do you realise that nobody care about resource discout.
Game is pushing resource discount for years and never TIME DISCOUNT or permament cut times for 50%.
If you are listening players, like you sad, than it's time for change.

But also voice of community is that everyone doesn't want general spawn radius 13 and you say you listen to players and you will leave it. Definitely you are not listening.

I am calling you to make 2 poll question and you will easy see what community want.

1. Do you want time discount or resource discount?
2. Do you want general radius to go normal or range 13?

To be honest, I don't know how to create a poll here. If I know I will do it so you can see.
Thanks

1. I would prefer a time discount. The upgrading times are way too long and time is more valuable than the resources
2. General spawn radius 13. The spawn radius is a change that you can make changes. I at first didn’t like it but with anything you need to make adjustments. Which is why this is a strategy game. I wish I could create a poll but not sure how to either on here.
 
The event for the instant transition from the information age to the age of drones has begun, but no one can improve the city center. Shows still 17 days
