I would highly suggest you do another contest, and quickly. How to replace the forge bug, or improvements for non alliance, team management, etc. Like can you please make newly received items flash in forge menu like in hero attribute menu? Simple thing that goes a long way.
The 4.x update has not shown much impact (you mentioned resetting war map, please let the new map play first so everyone gets to see something new quickly! …)
the forging bug fix took away the one differentiator for top players (read my previous posts, seriously… ) I’m seeing a significant increase in players quitting, and I’m likely to be another shortly unless you want to discuss a short and medium term solution)
And seriously, did you modify odyssey so the three items shown to enhance are less random?? In other words, are they items less modified?
Prometheus said it pretty well, attached. Many other top players I respect.
Ps please do not post this publicly. I agree with him, I’m finding little reason to launch the game daily anymore. The forge was enough for me, without, meh.
