You get the picture Soilwk, I am a Windows user and I guess there will enough players out there facing similar problem. We don’t have options for free food like other Operating Systems, so is this fair? We also have no mechanisms like tapjoy to get free gems. We asked/begged many times to do something and solve that unfairness, but Windows players are not taken serious and it seems like we just keep talking into the void, nobody seems to be out there listening.
As a bonus/reaction, next season the unfairness is even increased, more disadvantage for Windows players. I know raids are more easy on Windows, but taking away one third of the raids of players during war season doesn’t feel right for me. Want more raids, just pay for it. Again that deja vu that seems to come back every time.
When three or more wars are on same day, we are already forced to either buy food with vouchers or gems unless war chests we win give us a lot of food. Waiting for farms to refill is no serious option, most players stopped upgrading farms after level 13, so 800 bread in 2,5 hours giving two (yes two or three if you had any food left in silo!) more fights. And then I don’t even talk about ten raids that can be done, impossible to do ten raids per war without refilling silo for three additional fights for 50+ gems per time when you are ‘fortunate’ to be a Windows player. Sure… other users will also run out of free food options and need to pay.
5 or 6 battles with full silo plus four level 13 farms (I even upgraded a few of them to a higher level) is a joke and don’t tell me you don’t realize this. Since some of you seem to agree with this extra food cost and spending gems, why not ask directly for using gems instead of food during an upcoming war season? Try to realize that not all players are top alliance members and don’t reflect everything to your own situation, please try to hold reckon with other players that are in a different situation.
Without wasting gems/vouchers there is no way you can help your team, nice twist for a so called free game. Some players suggest to just skip the war season. War is fought by an alliance and leaders can’t accept that only a part of the team is able to do three 100% raids. You give players that come short on food the option, either buy food or leave the alliance, but fortunately this is a far from ‘my bed’ show for some here.
As the leader of my team, I will tell my players that I don’t want them to waste gems to buy extra food to get those required raids in. Maybe some players here don’t care, but in lower ranked alliances (the majority of alliances isn’t a top alliance) there are a lot of players that won’t like to be forced to buy food, and only reason to do so next season is this extra food cost. When players are forced to do what they don’t like, it becomes a must, more stress and yep… Players will start to lose pleasure playing the game and … (fill in yourself what the consequences are)
Some players are correct when they said there were no complaints when food was only 50%, why on earth somebody would complain about that? Does it justify that next war season the costs are (spend food for three, only get two) higher than regular? I don’t think so. When a store will come with a similar ‘discount’, it will guaranteed to lose a lot of money and even could go bankrupt.
To be clear, I will respect the higher food cost, but certainly don’t like it.
