Joan of Arc 5/12 - 5/19
This week is our Joan of Arc Event!

Joan of Arc (1412-1431), also known as the Maid or Orléans, is the patron saint of France and considered a symbol of French unity and nationalism. Born in the midst of the Hundred Years' War, Joan believed she was instructed by God to drive the English out of France and help Prince Charles regain his throne. At age 16, she made a journey to Prince Charle's court and convinced him to grant her an army to free the town of Orléans from the English. She won a miraculous victory, and her reputation spread far and wide.

After a failed attempt to take the town of Compiégne back from the Burgundians in 1430, she was taken captive and kept imprisoned for a year. In May 1431, she was forced to sign a confession denying she ever received divine guidance and was burned at the stake for witchcraft. 25 years later, Pope Callixtus III declared her a martyr, and she later became the patron saint of France.

First of all, I would like to say that I think the Instant Upgrades are a really great idea. I hope we see something like this again in the future. Perhaps as early as the Summer of Ages, possibly as a mix with the previous system: 75% time reduction and 25% cheaper.

I like that you're splitting the costs between food and gold this week.
But this week is going to be really lame. The temples a second time? They've been fully upgraded since the Global Age. For the weekend, the oil refinery; that's a single building. It takes just a few minutes to pay for it.
Much more exciting are improvements that are often possible or more expensive. So upgrades where we have to loot intensively. Like the oil wells this time, or recently farms, caravans, mills and markets.
Please consider this for the next few weeks; we would much rather have a second chance at the looting-intensive buildings than the archive, vault or university a second time.

Well I suggest since BHG can not make everyone happy they just stop the instant upgrades.
Seriously would not hurt me in the least. Why cause at this rate going be allot of folks with zero to build zero to upgrade and then the real complaining will start.

Here idea release Robotic age now lol cause the bored player bases is only growing.

Why temple again? It was maxxed after a couple of raids..

Give us one more round of caravan, farm, markets and mills :)
You know, there are 3 or 4 other players out there .... maybe, just maybe they can benefit from this.

Okay, ENOUGH!
Kids, don't make me turn this forum around...

Personally, I'm glad they offered the Temple again. I had started a new account and missed the first go-round.
Just shows you can't make everyone happy. I am very thankful for any and all advantages the devs give us.

Not sure where to ask this? Are you doing another Summer of Ages again this year? I realize there have been a lot of instant upgrades (thank you for this). Just wondering.

Lol please BHG stop giving away free instant upgrades or only run them 1 time thru. All folks are doing is fluffing up their alt accounts hence why they need more time lol This makes it harder on the newer single account players to succeed fighting against more experienced players alt accounts.

Plus I would just get kick out of it lol

This does not only apply to secondary accounts.

Depending on where you start, the costs are:
- the oil wells up to 1.5 billion
- the farms up to 0.8 billion
- the caravans up to 0.8 billion

Not everyone can do that in 3 days. Not everyone had billions of gold and food in their inventory. Not everyone can spend 16 hours a day in the game.
So it's certainly not just about second accounts and a second round would really be desirable.

I have been enjoying the instant upgrades, but the timings do seem off, the ones with more buildings need more time, the ones with less need less time.

I don't have more than 1 account lol, i just neglected production buildings cos military buildings are more important and storage was needed for other upgrades.
