There was no need for inserting money or blame flare in this post. All is asked was a simple change in the event.
I don’t think even top players use gems for boosting farms and blacksmith , as the cost of running the boosts for all day requires around- 4x6x20 + 50x3 = 630 gems.
And in a month the cost will be = 630x30= 18900 Gems! Who will activate it? That’s why most players depend on free boosts.
I used to earn around 500 pearls a day when my Blacksmith was boosted, now I earn around 150 a day which really is affecting my gameplay.
Talking about what flare has done for free players- Videos , Daily rewards. Chests from wars, increase pearls in Cof, Increased no. of items found in Cof, Your 2nd forge is always success and list goes on.
And i am not complaining flare, just gave a good suggestion
