Yes it's war game,but it's also a social game.
It wouldn't be fair to those that pay and also finically keep the game up to expose them to pvp they may not like or have time for
The osw players/group is an exclusive club not many are willing to join


Not only would it not be fair, this would hands down kill the game. I know OP that your sitting there in your chair being all bothered that people don't want to Pvp "like old kaw" but consider for a moment that kaw had a terrible player retention. The single idea of OSW is to decimate your opponent ending most of the time in the loser quitting the game. If you shut down ebs and events for a week you would lose 30%+ players who don't care to Pvp and wouldn't log back in a week later to pick up where they left off. Just accept the fact that the game has grown and changed and stop trying to kill it.

Edit: side note, I'm casted this weekend and my battle list is literally only showing 4 people. The same 4 people since Friday afternoon when I got off work. This alone means that the amount of people who share your "shut down ebs" vision is prolly less than 1% of the kawmunnity. If the people in my hit rage that are casted is that low I can only assume it's much worse at the top tier.


The events killed retention also. The pay to play got so bad many like myself quit. Surely The kawmunity can handle a couple
Days every once a while where there are no ebs running. You saying that out of 365 days a year it's too much to ask for a couple weeks of eb breaks?

Yes it is too much to ask. I'm a 6 year player and when I started you had to grow off the battle list. Osf weren't even really a thing yet. I spent almost 5 years in OSW and finally my real life took priority over losing sleep to catch strips. If they stopped events/ebs for a week I would quit playing personally. And this is coming from someone with enough OSW experience to actually speak on the matter. You have to consider that these days the App Store is FLOODED with games just like this. Take away what 90% of the games population thrives on and they will just download the next game on the list and stop playing kaw. So lf the game loses mabey 10 players like yourself then it's not much of a loss. If the game losses 90% of its players well... then it's just FC and we all saw kaw shut that down in a year. Sorry OP but this isn't a viavble option to expand the game or to retain the players the game has left.

Your opinion means nothing to me so you can save it indefinitely.

Just know that when you came back from your break, and your clan name wasn't hit anymore, I had a hand to play in that. Talk in my nf when you catch up ;)

You silly he/she person. If what I have seen in the last month is any indication of how you lead I am guessing your just bore people to death? Encourage all talk with no action?

Anyhow, back to the thread. If this is not a viable way to entertain everyone. What are some other thoughts?

They did it once, in a way. They made a pvp event with everyone active, people complained about having too much gold out to participate in a pvp event.

I remember that. Everyone's banks got killed. Lol. Hence the pvp system we have now. Maybe a mix of this with a couple day, heck one day eb shutdown?

Everyone has a slightly differing take on this game. Some like to do ebs only, some like to do EE wars, some like to do PvP events on the weekend and some like to do OSW. The sustenance of this game depends on catering to all the players (community as a whole). We cannot isolate one particular community, say ppl who like to OSW, and ask Devs cater to that alone. Your OP mentions Devs catering to event hunters alone. Your suggestion is the reversal of the same. If we want this game to progress and not stagnate, we need to understand the player base. Not everyone is on the same platform.

Also, even the players involved in OSW hit ebs, target event items, organize trains etc.. so I doubt you ll find many people receptive to this idea.

After some thought, I would support week long Pvp instead of weekend Pvp with top 10 Pvp dropping 40k items thus ensuring best drops from event. That keeps things running and offers more rewards for Pvp making people more likely to join. Would have to be scaled of course so you could choose one path or the other to reach event goals. Is that more of a compromise OP?

Find/build a clan. Farm eb hunters. Pretty simple. Organize it yourself.
