Okay so you might've seen my retirement thread (most likely not) but I signed in today after a small friend of mine on here expressed disgust at the newest update. I came to check it out and see what's what. CONGRATULATIONS DEVS! You've now reached the level of money grabbing that call of duty resides at - where you don't actually listen to players, but instead look for ways to maximise profit before long term players become bored and move on due to a lack of change. Now, allow me to talk about this update. T7 Upgrades Now this irritated me the most. You've taken the finish flag from the end of the race when most were only half finished, and you moved it an extra 3 miles forward. The runners are frustrated, and you've lost their support. They don't want to run the race anymore. Only those that had a huge lead on the others keep running - why should they care about the rest of the participants? They won't speak out, instead choosing to continue the run. Almost nobody was ready. 90% of KaW haven't even started the damn abyss. Doesn't this ring some kind of alarm bell? Or maybe it does but you simply don't care anymore. If you're gonna do this, slash T4. Slash hoarfrost. Give some gold back. Rebalance the playing field for everyone. EB Plunder Increase Now I've grown lazy in my retirement so I'm going to blatantly steal Rusted's fancy graph here: Look at that lovely spike. The spike that's totally inaccessible to every new player, who are instead stuck with the mediocre looking middle bar. The payout increase isn't all that noticeable when pitted against the costs of upgrading nowadays, especially at T4L4 level. Not like most newer players will even notice the difference due to the total lack of allies for sale below 1 billion gold. See the issue? There's no way to get a foothold even with the new player bonuses. Season 5 Well that was actually pitiful. You've had 8 months and all you can manage is "we've not actually got anything to tell you because we've been busy making events instead of thinking of war". Not even an idea of what wars will be in the season, nothing. Bravo. Kingdoms at war my ass. Weekend Promo Same **** different day really. Not like anyone really asked for this but hey, guess you needed something to lower the number of reset accounts today. That's the rant over with. I'm too lazy to continue but I'm sure the Devs will continue to milk their cash cow until it dies of exhaustion while I'm gone. Or maybe they'll finally listen. What a preposterous idea.
