I’m sorry if I put this in the wrong place. I’m still not used to this new message board (sorry, I like the old one better- it was large, but organized nicely for the most part.)
I was saving up vouchers to buy gems to eventually upgrade my alliance tower. Since I’m a free player (I can’t afford to spend money on a game), the vouchers were an excellent way to get gems to be able to do that, now that our Conquest buildings, guardians, and everything else seems to require the use of gems. I had been saving up for some time and used 14,000 vouchers to get 2000 gems, but I have 21,000 more vouchers and was hoping to use them to get more gems so that I’d have enough to finally be able to upgrade that alliance tower.
Problem is after using those 14K vouchers for the 2000 gems, there is no other gem/voucher offer that comes up. They used to come up automatically, but not this time. Have I reached the limit? According to the wiki, that was the last entry. Wouldn’t it just keep repeating the 14K/2000 offer if that was the max? I’d hate to think there will be no more gems available this way anymore! Is this a bug, or am I just out of luck? Since Flare seems to think gems are the answer to everything, and I choose to pay for medical care for my wife as opposed to furthering myself playing a game, I’m wondering if this is the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back in causing me to find a new game where I can actually get somewhere without having to pay for in-game levelling up. I find it more gratifiying when I EARN it anyway, but if it’s going to take me a year to get that many gems, forget it. I’m willing to take the time to earn my stuff, but if it takes so long it’s like it doesn’t even make a difference, than forget it. This game has changed so much since I joined. It’s become a time drain- I can’t let it become a wallet drain, too.
