  1. War Improvements

    i understand what you're saying, @dumpster I'm just more concerned about other players that I have in alliance, from levels between 80/90 that they really strive hard to reach the best war chests. it would not be fair for them to receive even less ...
  2. War Improvements

    hummm... i agree with almost everything. except this: "It should not be possible to get 3 titan battle chests (or the new equivalent top prize) in war unless you compete at the highest levels." this wouldn't bring even more difficulties to good, but still low-level players, who still can not integrate the top alliances?
  3. Hero Tribute! - Writing Contest

    IGN: M Duchamp Perseus, the insubordinaste one Perseus was sitting at the temple window. His feet hurt. The bastard of his god-player, made him run fast foward constantly and forced him to make all the decisions in battle. He was tired. Sometimes he thought that had been unlucky, that the idiot of his god-player must be really dumb to leave the fate of Mount Olympus to automatic. What would he do while Perseus defeated the enemy monsters? Was he stunned and just looking? Would he be in toilet? with girlfriend or boyfriend or both? He had accumulated so much fatigue and so much anger at his god-player that these thoughts were taking over his mind, battle after battle, and the urgency of escape was eminent. The plan was outlined, when he reached the end of the bridge, he would jump to the cliffs, descend to Ithaca Port and escape by boat. Nobody would miss the boat until Monday. And he would finally be free! On that day, when he heard the call to battle, Perseus was ready! He fought like never before and ran like there was no tomorrow. When it reached the beginning of the bridge, his legs weakened a bit, but it was only for a moment. He took a deep breath and continued, tapped the guard hero and jumped over the bridge. He was in decline. He could feel the wind coming through her skirts and prepared himself for impact on cliffs. Waited for that… waited… but nothing happens. He was falling into the void! He opened his eyes and saw nothing, was surrounded by black, wind and anguish. WTF? Closed his eyes again, not believing what was happening, and when opened them again: a new world was ahead of him. He didn't recognize anything around, only realized that everything was gigantic. He ran and hid behind what looked like a glass capable of harboring the sea of war, and peeked. A huge blond-haired human being shimmered and shouted in a strange language for a black rectangular object, at first glance, he couldn’t tell if he was a man or a woman, or both, maybe just a strange woman. She seemed out of control, at one point threw that object close to Perseus's hiding place and continued hysterically throwing other objects at the floor, until finally she calmed down, exhausted and red from so much screaming. She lay leaning against a chair, still tossing an incomprehensible tantra. Perseus silently approached the black object and all the confusion he felt were dissipated. He had finally realized what had happened. As he jumped the bridge, he jumped out of the game. The black object was the phone where the battles were taking place, and that blond human was his god-player. What a disillusionment ... never put much hope in him, but he wasn’t expecting so much hysteria ... What a A-hole! The pain he still felt in his feet made him act again. Unsuspectingly, he circled the woman and climbed to the top of the chair. He clutched some strands of that discolored dry hair and carefully tied them to the chair. He jumped up, walked over to his feet, and tied the laces of his sneakers together. So far, he hasn’t being noticed. All he had to do was hold his arms, that was the hard part… He climbed into a cupboard behind them and with effort, tossed a huge jar, with something red inside, down. It turned out well: it fell on her head and she was inanimate. Perseus came down, smelled the gelatinous liquid, it was a strawberry jelly. He sat down a bit, laughed a lot at this god-player sad figure and tied his hands with some cloths that were there. Now it would be his revenge: he went straight to the phone, opened the game and played: for real! From that moment on, he would be the master of Olympus Island. For a moment he thought he would miss his beloved Artemis and his brother Odysseus, but all this was doing it for them, for their honor! And so it was, towards an honorable victory! (of what later happened with the blond woman with strawberry jelly, this story doesn’t care) * * * p.s.: i hope you understand that english is not my language, so... it's the best i can do.

  6. doubts about pheme

    no doubts about pheme mystery solved. I probably saw the power equipped in a hero and was attached to the cooldow of that hero. I noticed now. sorry for the possible confusion. I don't know if this has already been explained in the forum... but I've been digging up and found nothing. If anyone can help me understand, I'm grateful. it's about pheme cooldown: I now have the power in lvl 25. Before reaching the 10000 trophies, the cooldown was around 40-50s (I can't remember exactly). I passed this barrier recently and pheme became stronger but the cooldown returned to the 60s. So far so good. yesterday, I noticed that it had already reduced to the 53s, but this morning it was in the 60s again. being the power dependent on the trophies and because I lost some during the night, I've been fighting until I got the 10160 I had last night, to see what happened ... but nothing happened. continues in the 60s. was it a momentary bug? after all, what is the percentage of trophies necessary in each step, to lower the cooldown of this power?
  7. Very few attack???

    I also feel ignored :/ (1 - 3 per day)
  8. Ohh... the money! The reason is always on the side of the wallet, right? I know that point of view. I'm not interested in discussing it. I finished here.
  9. @MarcusozInception, As you well said: you do not know. I do not know about you either. And that's fine. But thanks for leaving your opinion here. "No one can read all the books in the world" and if you are smart, you focus on what is really important to you. In relation to leisure, I believe that the way you apprehend things is the most important. Therefore, I'm not interested in deepening the psychology of the game, because I don't want to make it a second job. That would take me away the pleasure of playing. Such as a concert: I don't want to know what backline is being used (I leave it to the professionals). I just want to enjoy the performance. If the equipment is bad or is being misused, everyone notices. But if there is a small problem, even if you do notice, it certainly will not ruin your pleasure in listening: it becomes part of the whole! Same here in OR. You and dumpster, understand the game in another way: have become 'professionals', with the good and the bad that this entails. All right, this is up to you. I would never take family/job time for a game. I just want to have fun. This is me. I believe that there are many players who are here, like me, just for the fun and they can relativize the small problems that appear. We can also give our our opinion, ... or not?
  10. @dumpster, I'm sorry to hear you say that I never let a game interfere with my real life. So I grew up slowly... and maybe that's why I still enjoy the game. Having ceased to be general and being in a middle alliance also helps, the objectives are not so urgent ... and if we lose there is no big drama ... do you want to try?
  11. @dumpster, well... you've said it all: "I don't think wars are very fun" and "I don't enjoy the game as much as I used to". In this case, I have nothing more to say ...
  12. ok, I didn't know that. I wasn't one of the first to get here, but I remember what player at the front had like 5000 trophies. It seemed to me unbridgeable and it seems to me that it's been two years or more. Despite this: I know that the most assiduous in the forum are malcontent, I've read you guys. I also liked to have better items. But the point that I've been defending and I'm not making myself clear, is that: if by the items, or improvements, or determined tower, or certain hero, or whatever .. you can't continue to grow, or enjoy the game, or whatever ... there are other ways or combinations to get around. This is the beauty of the game: not having everything the easy way. Let me give you an example, when the prices of blessing increased, this forum was a mess. Now you tell me @dumpster, cus you're in a top alliance: did you or did you not get around and stay on top? It wasn't for the prices increased that the wars didn't continue to be fun ... as long as you enjoy the game. That's all I wanted to underline.
  13. p.s.: I don't want to take the place of the devil's lawyer. I rarely comment on the forum. This time I did it because I like this game and some comments seem a bit arrogante and unfair to me.
  14. @MarcusozInception, With the greatest respect too, I'll not read an article whose title is "what makes a good game", because neither would read one that said "what makes a good book" or "what makes a good movie". I experience and draw my own conclusions. In relation to the paragraph that you leave here, I assume you've reached a point where you need more reasons to play, it's fair. I don't have that much time to play, so it's fine with me. When the odyssey is over, the war is about to begin. I have no idea how long I've been here, but when I started playing there wasn't even a button for autoplay. Since that time so far, I've seen the game grow in many directions, many changes have been made and so far I don't think it have been for worse, quite the contrary. Surely more improvements will come ... I'm still waiting for what will come out of the hole that is in the middle of the war map! If the improvements are not released at the speed you want or the game does not live up to your player needs, there will surely be others who fulfill your need ... this is just a game! If you don't enjoy the time you use in it, it does not make sense to continue. It's simple! Now... just because one have spent real money to get to the top fast and now is borred, sorry but it was his choice. Just don't expect the developers to be your employees and each time a player appears here saying that will give up because he has had enough of spending money and now he is borred, on the other side there is an instant improvement!
  15. hi @MarcusozInception! i'm not missing the point cus i was responding to the inicial post. and there's a lot of subjects in it. regarding Odyssey: depends on your purpose in doing it. I don't do it for the chests. I do it for the betterment of the troops, towers, powers and heroes. and this will only be realized in a long run. if in the end we get chests, I understand it as an extra (that rewards for effort), not the main goal. such as in war: my main objective is that the alliance grow, have the blessings of war and only in the last, the chests. when one arrive at a certain level, if one get 2 good items is already much... but it seems to me that this is supposed to be like that: the more you grow into the game the more difficult it gets.
