The the military upgrades making much of a difference?
And I realy don't like to build 3 costy buildings just to do the quest (and destroy them right after building them).
I didn't build them.
well, testing for bugs would require some help, like free diamonds or some kind of help to do over and over some things that are pretty rare (like reaching a boss in the spire). It's rather obvious that this beta isn't a real testing server.That was your choice. My choice is that on my first time through a chapter, I complete all of the quests because that is part of the story and the game. It is when my other cities go through the same content that I will ignore the tough quests and just get through the chapter without doing them. Besides, if someone has a Beta city in a newly released chapter, aren't they supposed to be doing all the quests, or the whole looking for bugs things is pointless, if they are not testing everything.
Like in chapter 15, where you build the three middle buildings and the Vault of Wisdom, just to sell them right after, if you have enough portal profits to complete the rest of the chapter.
When you use a merchant the other players see your offer. This offer appears with a hat. If someone takes that offer with a hat, your merchant is immediately recovered and you can send it again. But what makes an offer lose the hat? I see a lot of hatless offers, but I don't know what causes it.
In my opinion, offers without a hat should not exist, because if someone takes an offer without a hat, they are not helping the one who placed the offer.
