Since extra worker means player can build stronger base at faster rate , it is very important to have around 5-7 workers (some got even more) but the price also increase insanely after each purchase.In my situation , its 4000 gems for 8th worker.I think very little player would actually buy one unless they got worker package.
So I wanna suggest Flare make a system where player can loan workers for certain amount of gems.It could be like the gold shield where theres 1 day 3 days and 7 days shield with 10 days cooldown ? For the loan worker deal , it could be 1 worker for 45 gems , 3 workers for 180 gems and 7 workers for 500 gems (995 is too much for me but it depends on Flare)
The worker can only complete one construction each (regardless of its duration) so 3 worker can build 3 towers and after they finish the towers they go into cooldown mode.This is better than buying 20 workers for tons of gems only to realise they’re pretty much useless once everything is maxed out.I for sure won’t buy the 8th worker as I don’t think I need it in the long run.
This along with the food production/silo capacity suggestion I posted in improvement thread will make the game a lot better I’m sure.
