You seem to think that the people giving comments here or on FB are not worth being listen to. You might be right. Maybe we are too few and maybe the way you go is the right way to go.
In our alliance Petite Alliance, there is no single general who still have fun in the game. The only thing that keeps us in game is the chat and the related Messenger group. We all want to quit this game, but yet we stay for the social aspect and the good in game friends.
No need to develop here: Alliance wars are so pointless. Alliances don’t fight them any more. Rewards are not worth the effort and are always the same. The only focus is to not gain too many fiefdoms because it will make it harder for the future to win a war that nobody want to win. The strategy consists in putting 6 towers near the gate so no-one will attack you. Building a defense is pointless.
Ninjas are just same routine always. Make sure to raid without troops to avoid killing the gate too soon is the only point.
PL would be fun if we would not see the top list full of players level 25.
Etc etc etc. Read the forum.
We reached the ally max level, everything in game is max, we should now aim for our player max level and keep doing the only thing left: collect pearls and forge.
And then what? What will happen when everything will be maxed? Sadly we know you too well. A new tower, a new unit, a new spell maybe, numbers of balance changes in case we would be late with something, and of course new levels for everything…
Every month is more borring than the previous one. No-one want to be active general. No-one want to take the alliance lead. We just stay together as game friends hopping for better future.
That’s too much for me. I would have been more than happy to buy several big gems packages per month as I did when you were trying to keep this game active with new features. I wish you all the best but really, with old players leaving and new players having no chance to reach a decent level in years, I don’t see how.
I have been playing this game since the begining almost. Now I can tell that if all the old players would post their name on this forum when they quit the game, you would have a hell of a long list.
Good luck to all my friends in game, long life to Petite Alliance and good bye Flare Games.
