- This is a Tower Defense and Tower Offense game. Unique in some sorts. So, in what game there are ENDLESS upgrades for real money!? WITH A CHANCE ON THEM!? (you could now level up certain aspects of your towers/troops/spells for pearls). You can say “well, it’s not a mandatory to pay to get the pearls!” and it would be a scam - pearls gain is very limited per day, and with a new boost to blacksmith (oh yeah! you couldn’t increase pearl production number, you increased the speed! Now I need to spend 10 hours per day, farming gold to buy items and then melt them and then pay for melting, just to keep up with those guys who can easily spent 10 000$ per month on this game? (all my efforts would be of no use anyway)). Just imagine, I would attack a guy, whos towers I cannot destroy with 3-4 Sonic Blasts, cause of all the money he invested into the game!
2.You make an update right before the alliance wars, with 10 more alliance levels, when even 1 extra slot would result in the balancing change? And what would be the cost? Around 3000$+ for the 10 extra levels, I suppose?
- You removed a way to get rid of our trophies to get gold on lower levels of this game, and now on top level THERE IS NO GOLD! And all of your “new levels” require much of that gold!
first of all, thanks for your post. Some answers:
- Pearl-Upgrading of Towers, Obstacles, Spells, Troops
There are no endless upgrades for Pearls. There is a limit and the limit depends on the aspect you wanted to upgrade. Typically it is around ~30% of the base strength.
We know that players will need more Pearls, so we did a number of things.
>> we increased the number of pearls the blacksmith can melt per day.
>> we increased the number of hero-items you get in the CoF
>> we increased the number of hero-items you get from Chests
>> we increased the amount of Pearls you get from CoF
>> we increased the amount of Pearls you get from Chests
>> we added new ways to get Chests
>> we will have events inwhich you can earn more Pearls frequently.
There will never be a situation inwhich a Pearl boosted tower would become so powerful that you cannot destroy with 3-4 Sonic Blasts. Never ever.
We have been approached very often by players who said, if you add a little bit range to Troop A, I could use it. If you add a little bit power to Tower B, I would know a new strategy. If the Cooldown of Spell C would a bit smaller, then I could use it for my raids. So that is the reason, to give you the chance to discover new strageies and to adapt the gameplay elemets towards your style of play.
- The extra Alliance Levels do not add extra slots of players for two reasons.
>> We feel with 60 players the Alliances are big enough.
>> We did not want to put you in a situation where you feel forced to level your Alliance very quickly just to stay competitive in wars. We hope that it will be a much more long-term approach even for top-alliances.
We know that it is very likely that after the upgrade there might be not enough Gold. That is a situation we do not like. We did the following to hopefully prevent this:
Together with the server-update that unlocks the new levels of the most buildings, troops and spells we also added changes to the Gold economy balancing.
>> You will get a lot more Gold “subventions” per battle.
>> Also the Gold you find in CoF will be higher.
>> And then you will find better gold rewards from the chests.
>> Hopefully the extra Tavern levels and the production boost will also help.
So hopefully the situation that you describe is not happening. Anyway we will have a close eye on it and increase the Gold-bonus if necessary.
