The forum is an almost unlimited source of info and tips that enable us to play better and better. Many posts are great to read since those who do not play this game since years and do not yet have even the grass beside the castle gate maxed and boosted can learn a lot.
Still about fifty percent of the posts nowadays are on why can’t we get more gems for free, why can’t we have 2million peals for free, why do iOS players have vids, why are windows players discriminated etc… and this is just boring. If ones tries to find a decent helpful post, first needs to read 1 million complaints.
Have typed the below, as I use the forum to guide me trough the game a read great tips from experienced players, not to blame anyone or create bad feelings in any who believe that his/her complaints are grounded.
There are a few things that need to be accepted, and if you manage to do so, you’ll enjoy playing.
Presumably the fact that this game can be downloaded for free and can be played for free if one wishes, makes people believe that this is a FREE GAME. IT IS NOT! If you want to play it at full power you need to pay. It is exactly the same as a beta version of a software. If anyone believed that the software developer guys, who btw do a great job, work in the voluntary army called flaregames, than you are wrong. Still if you play for fun, why do you care that those who pay get more? Play for fun!!! It is a great choice.
I am an iOS user, and yes I get vids for food, still probably less than someone located in an apple dominated country. Why do I get vids and widows users don’t? Simple logic, apple costs triple and has store based sales. Every decent iOS software costs a fortune. Am I getting some extra advantage? No, as I have paid far more than others. If you don’t need an Apple product, would you buy it for triple windows or ten-times android price, only to play this game and get the same extras? Presumably no, and you would do right!
Would you need unlimited food vids? You live in Somalia where noone buys from the Apple store, but you still want those vids to pop-up? All you need to do is to move to the US and you have them. Would you do it? Presumably no, and you would do right!
Cmon guys be once with your feet on the ground. Flare upgrades this game and develops others for profit and not to make free players happy. And this is absolutely normal. All you need to do is to accept it (you don’t get free beers in the pub either, unless is yours, or if you do please share the address). And if you decide to be a free player than play for fun.
This is a game that is much fun to play irrespective how you play it!
