Hmm, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen complaints before that the game is boring between wars and most of you (people complaining before) doesn’t really bother to play during breaks, unless you need gold for upgrades.
The schedule looks busy, indeed but in my opinion only looks that way, and in fact, to me it has quite a lot of advantages. Why ?
A war - yeah, you rather need to play as a member of alliance
A short event - one day is not much, though, on the other hand, how many of you been complaining about lack of gold during those 3 day events ? how tiring it was when you really forced yourself to make as many upgrades possible during those 3 days ? Now it looks more enjoyable to me, I will play for a couple of hours during that event, will make one, two, three upgrades and that’s it, it’s over and I’m happyc (I assume thanks to that we should see more gold around as well). Secondly, there are many different events, we don’t take part in every event, we don’t enjoy every event etc.
Ninja event - if you don’t want to, you don’t have to play (not like alliance wars where you kind of have to play), even with yout minimal effort you will still get some kind of reward (even if it’s a crappy reward, it’s still better to get it for doing nothing than get nothing, don’t you think?). Also, ninja events (based on the only one we had so far) was a great way of farming gold and medals - so basically it is something you would do normally during a break between wars - either farming gold for upgrades or not playing at all. Ninja events is actually a break time to me - one event I will play and aim for top rewards, the other day I will play casually, not a big deal.
Again a short event which I explained above (actually as ninja event lasts only for 3 days, not 5 like wars, so in a long run we get events more often, so it’s ok they are shorter).
As I said, to me it only looks busy. Alliance wars are the only time when you basically have to play a bit, whatever happens between them is your personal choice. Though, I’m not aware how many days are actually between wars, before if I’m not mistaken breaks were 5 and 6 days, not sure if it’s still the same or something has changed. If we still have 5 days of a “break” (full of events) I’m ok with it because mostly wars are tiring and boring to me but it is my personal opinion.
If I’m not mistaken somewhere in between there is a day of two of no events so basically nothing changes to much. Before we had a 5-6 break with a 3 day event, now during that time, between wars, we will get two shorter events and a ninja event which as I said is basically something you would do normally during that time.
