This post is regarding the stupid shit that flare keeps throwing at its players in name of a solution/fix of problems.
One of those stupid solution was introducing skulls in fortune chamber. Originally players complained that they had to grind too much at high levels to win war seasons and asked flare to solve that issue. They had to spend a lot time playing continuously as soon as food was ready just to maintain their lead with skull bonus. Also many players just bought food by spending money and played continuously which was a great disadvantage to free players.
So Flare introduced skull bonus in fortune chamber which not only forced players to spend even more time in grinding and money for buying food, but also forcing them to spend more money to buy gems to open chests in fortune chamber. How in the freaking hell is this a solution to a given problem when it escalates the problem and makes it even more worse…Anyone who can explain this logic, I am ready to listen to it…But please don’t give me a bullshit answer that “We know it’s a business model and flare has to work on making money too…”. If you are looking for a solution from me, I don’t have it. It is not my job to find solutions for flare, they are not paying me to find solutions for the problems they create.
As I see it, there is no point ever in nerfing or boosting any units/structure in game as alliance with people who cannot buy food or pay for gems and play solely based on skills will always loose to an alliance who has players ready to spend money to buy food and spend gems to scroll and open chests in fortune chambers. The shitty logic of manual match making will never work because even with manual match making, the team with most money to spend will ALWAYS WIN….unless they another alliance with more money to spend.
So my suggestion is stop worrying about nerfing or boosting stuff as there is no requirement of skills when victory can be bought by money…
Basically with this model, any player with big ego and lot of money to spend can be the real “KING”.
