Finally, I don’t feel like I’m playing Orthia Rising.
I was really about to give up on this game until the most recent update. I really thought this game would end up like a IAP hellstew like Royal Revolt 2.
Now, the game is fair enough that I am almost ready to recommend it to all of my friends: the most recent update almost feels like a love letter to many Olympus Rising fans.
1.) The modified trophy system is perhaps my favorite change. The old one literally punished a player for actually playing the game. Literally. I never understood why raid would play victory music, but I’d still lose dozens of trophies.
2.) Ambrosia costs are still infuriating. Sometimes the geometry used to calculate costs appears borked.
a.) Either reduce ambrosia costs to empty islands to zero (please this!!), or
b.) Reduce ambrosia costs to Olympus to zero (if you absolutely must greed-finger ambrosia money from people), or
c.) Reduce ambrosia costs to gem protected islands to zero. (Worst choice, guys. Do not impress us with unmitigated gem avarice, devs.)
bonus.) Reduce ambrosia costs for subsequent attacks of the same island (as if encamping near an occupied wall).
I really like Hephaestus gem reductions, but I really think it should just be a flat 3 gems per chest.
I think it should be a flat 4 gems per island protection.
Oh, please make this weekend’s dominance boost permanent. This is a really good place. Also, consider adding a little dominance to the cheaper gem packages, and maybe a little more to the more expensive ones.
Thank you for finally reducing troop upgrade time. Geez it was absurd before. Also, could you guys make it so that multiple troops can be simultaneously upgraded when reaching certain War Academy levels?
All in all, this game is really enjoyable now. I don’t feel like trash for attempting a difficult base. And bases on the whole are becoming more clever and well-thought. It’s not just a corner of orthia towers and some ice warriors (oh, please reduce the amount of time the ice warriors freeze effect lasts, at the very least end it immediately when that warrior is defeated.)
Happy Olympusing (I know I finally am).
