This issue is wildly relevant in terms of making good use of statues. Conqueror is a fantastic strategist and it sounds like Elvenar's developers are taking this issue seriously.
I agree. I added some premium expansions and what happened with the increase in the spire was far, far, far beyond what the expansions could give.@Marindor
In the past 2 players got a different experience in the tournaments based on how many SS upgrades someone had unlocked.
This created a situations where 2 players in the same chapter, with the same unit production got a different tournament difficulty based on how many optional SS researched to completed / skipped, this is now abolished which should even the battlefield
Now we changed to a new form of calculation and actually the same thing happens again.
Now 2 players in the same chapter with the same production do have a different tournament difficulty based on how much they invested in the game, either buying premium expansions or by leveling wonders.
How is this different compared to the old situation, and what is the reasoning behind this move, and why does it specifically target the biggest elvenar fans that are the most active and in case of expansions are the players that fund the game?
If you are aware that one system is flawed why would you build a new system with the same inherent flaw and make it even worse, why not design a system that avoids the flaw all together.
Totally agree there, and you need to be able to accumulate excess so you have a buffer for when you can't go all in for the tournaments that you need relics. To me, the dust tournament has always been the most difficult, so it has been more difficult to accumulate them. The when my sister was dying, well, life events interfered with that tournament and I got so I absolutely had to play the next dust tournament strong, and they cancelled it. I think you need to be able to do double what you need to run 24/7 for a cycle. I only started playing this stupid game as an escape from thinking about my sister and how horrifically she was suffering. I didn't need to be reminded I ran out of relics because my sister died and I didn't need to get a hard time with really mean spirited comments that I was upset about it. You need to be able to accumulate double what's needed for a cycle so you can weather the storms, whether they be life events, or poor decisions by Inno.Don't worry I personally do not mind being able to do a lot less as well,
My main gripe is more the difference between player A and B in similar situation just as the SS difference was an issue before, and that it's a disadvantage to progress beyond a certain envelope
1. Inno is famous for the bait and switch. We buy the diamonds because we know how much they can help our game, then after they have our money, they do the equivalent of paying for a sports car, and they switch it for a car that doesn't start.I have one concern that I have not yet seen in the discussion group. I am in orcs (so a fairly low-ranking, newer player. I use elixir relics all the time for crafting and was down to zero. I was really looking forward to gaining a lot of relics in this tourney but with the new format, I find it almost impossible to earn enough to last me until the next elixir tourney. can you please adjust the relics gained in each tourney province or give us another way to gain enough relics to get us through the 9 weeks it takes to get back to the needed goods tourney?
The difficulty mechanic needs a lot of tweaking. My proposal has difficulty at 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6 for levels 1-6 at province 41, and the difficulty increasing gradually to that and to continue to gradually increase.Hello everyone, I come from the Spanish server. I would like to give my opinion regarding everything read, seen and played in this new tournament, and the disaster that is coming over not quickly changing everything ...
1.- Someone explains to me, who can have the brilliant idea of, for example, "raising the difficulty of the tournament" depending on the expansions you have ??? So does the company expect a player to buy diamonds? FULLY ABSURD.
Players will stop buying diamonds (dedicated to expansions which is what is most needed in the city always, space), with which, the company LOSES and the player LOSES.
2.- Raise the level of difficulty in a tournament, depending on the levels of the wonders you have? Another nonsense !!!! The players who have kept this game for more than 4-5 years, are going to leave it instantly, they are the ones with the most levels of wonders, and if you make it difficult for them to play a tournament as they were doing now, taking away the option to win between 400-500 kp each week, they will not hesitate to leave and abandon.
Summarizing point 1 and 2, you have made two changes in the tournament, complicating the lives of the players who have invested the most here and who spend the most time here (I am talking about those who make 30-40-50 provinces each tournament and they like it !! ) Now they won't be able to.
I've only seen the orcs because I am in woodelves. I did not need orcs last week and this week I've burned through half of my storage that took months to build. I can only imagine mana is the same.One thing with this change that I am liking more and more is the difficulty mechanic, I just think it needs tweaking in respect to where it ramps up.
Seeing your ability in the tournament cut in half is only happening to aggressive players. That is targeting.When I hear that it was difficult for a player to score 1600 in the old system it makes me smile. In Chapter 3, you can already dial 1600(maybe earlier), and the further you move through the chapters, the easier and faster(in time) it is to do it. And if YOU don't do this, then you should think maybe you are doing something wrong in this game. And maybe you just don't need it.
About new changes
+/- Reduction in the cost of redemption. But the number of orcs and mana is insane even at 1*
+/- Reduce clicks to 1. But it is very conditional, because the losses will be greater. Perhaps it makes sense for a shorter time
+/- 9 bonus chests. Although the rewards are not worth paying attention to
Everything else is some kind of joke. We already have a spire, there is no need to make a second one. Do not punish players for pumping AW, buying extensions, or just playing longer than others(not premium extensions). If such tournaments come to live servers - well, the world is full of games that I can spend my time and MONEY on.
we're not trying to "target" a specific group of players. What we're trying to do with the new difficulty calculation, is make sure that the difficulty calculation matches the actual player progression. To oversimplify it: Let's say player A produces 2000 crystals a day and needs to pay 200 for catering 1 province, player B who produces 20.000 crystals a day should need to pay 2000 for that province, to make it relatively just as challenging. Once again, that's of course oversimplifying it, but that's the basic of this idea.
What we ideally don't want to do, is favor one play style over the other. By just tying difficulty to chapters, we would basically encourage players to stay in low chapters and massively boost their AW without progressing in the game. This would also encourage using push accounts and creating extra accounts with which you do nothing besides building some AW, manufactories or armories and use these resources to boost the tournaments. While we don't have the illusion that we will be able to get rid of pushing entirely, we at least don't want to encourage it or make it attractive.
In that case there is some serious rework to be done, essentially starting again from scratch.
We understand the intention, but we also like to point out you aren't even close to realising this unless you start again from scratch.
FA is a team event so I don't think limiting individual choice is a big dealIt limits the choices of individual players and forces them to take the route the Mages want.
If there was a choice between what is being voted on here and highlightinggive mages the possibility to highlight a route.
I know in my FS, once the desired points were taken care of the mages would open the others up for that purposeI don't think it is a good idea to lock ALL waypoints - because that works against players who only log in once a day and can't find a place to put an item.
That’s a great idea!My preference would just be to have the ability to flag or highlight certain waypoints, so there's a clear visual indication to the rest of the fellowship what path/waypoints are a priority, without having the rest of the waypoints excluded or locked. Then it becomes a pure communication tool, without any of the limitations of the existing ones.
