Apply Season 2 Changes Now! Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I've been thinking about this one. The only logical reason not to apply them is that it will mess up peoples dynasty achievements.

I raise a counter argument.
  • Changing it now makes it harder for new players to compete for Dynasty awards. 100% true.
  • However, unless the top 5 quit, new players will never catch up to them. So its a moot point.
  • New players are getting farmed to death which is forcing them out of the game.
  • Meaning, it doesn't matter whether the changes are made now or when S2 starts. Because none of the new players stick around to make it that far.

I hear what you're saying, and sure. Experienced players can work around this and help the new players who dont know what to do.
But even then, this is not an enjoyable experience for anyone involved.
  • New players are forced out of the game because they're starved.
  • Experienced players are mega frustrated due to the immense time wasted with bickering and doing 64 attacks a day (mostly against inactive players).

I would hazard a guess that the devs have realized this problem based on the recent changes in the patch notes. I assume they kept the changes to S2, so they dont mess up S1 statistics. OK, sure. But these changes are needed the MOST of servers in S1.

Will it mess up the dynasty statistics? Sure. But it will give the servers the best possible chance at growth. And I think thats worthy trade off. Maybe the devs dont... but its certainly worth a discussion ^^

As a tangent topic: If you want to test things, have muuuch shorter seasons of testing periods.
1 month long? Sure, I'll play in that! 1 week long and everyone starts out with prebuilt accounts to do the testing? Heck, i bet everyone would play that.

We would like the rules not to change mid-season. You'll get the updates soon enough Smile

Soon enough? Hmm I dont know about that. I don't think we'll see it this year - which means many months of 64 attacks per day and new players being harassed to extinction Crying
