BG Are they still worth doing?

I have never been a big fan of battlegrounds but kept at it until the recent update.

I do not feel that I gained more troops/resources than I spent but at least I gained lots of items to break down.

Since the update I seem to be losing more troops per battleground, and I have not seen any upside to playing them.


I would love more information about how to make BG successful or just to continue the discussion about this subject.

Payouts on BGs are way lower now than they used to. That, and the fact that you'll be damn lucky to get any equipment you need through BGs, makes the whole thing redundant. Battlegrounds are basically just a big waste of hard earned troops and time.

battle grounds now have payouts almost every battle however the payouts are worthless. as you will looks say 150 dragons and you will get back 25  not a good ratio. But after a couple days of losing almost everything you will get one big payout that still doesn't make up for what you spent to get there. The item you win aren't really worth much.and honestly upgrading any item that isn't dragon legendary is a waste of earned shards. a way of slightly increasing your troop payout is to have resources full during your bg however  payouts still usually don't equal the losses you incure. if you pay attention you will notice if you are low on resources a bg you thought would pay out great paysout a lil but gives you over 100k of one of the resources. not 100 percent sure it actually affects anything but is my theory.


but main point was are bgs worth it.. its the only  part of game I still slightly enjoy but even I have to say NO << NO THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT

      This is my personal opinion and observation I can't say for the rest. Unless the tournament gives off good rewards to replaces the troop lost or those 5k individual quest don't bother doing them as the rewards does not match your troop lost. Furthermore since they did that patch about giving a drop in every battle but reduce the chances of getting uber items I have put it to the test by doing 12 BGs per day for nearly 3weeks and yet to see anything above blue and none of them are better than your current gear. Like for example I can get dragon armor all I got are common dragon armor, some green elven armor and mostly get blue for orcs and northman armor. Yet to see a purple drop. Hence now a days mostly I only hit BGs around the sub 40s range to get canon folder for PVP and crappy items to destroy to get shards for upgrading my dragon armor.

personal experience on bgs in just last 7 or 8 days.. started off with a 2m offense.. played the game as usual which means I do raid but very rarely lose any troops so raids may account for a max of 20k of offense units in the last week. I have dropped as low as 175k offense and today I have reclaimed threw rewards I am upto 900k. so even playing faithfully and not hitting any over 100(once you start hitting 98 or over you need 3x the level minimum to win). good example upto lvl 49 you only count 1k per level and can win ie 49 takes 49k lvl 50 or higher takes 2x so level 52 may take around 104k to win and then about lvl 98 it takes 3k per level and I have gone over 150 and yes that takes 4 or 5x the lvl to win. anyway.. that basics aside I have played both offense and defense everyday for a week and 7 days into it I have less then 50% of the offense I started with and not gonna give exactly level of defense but that is also down by at least 50% as well.  this is also not figuring in that fact that all 4 of my unit productions ques have been full and making units as well there by meaning the return is even less since my total at this point includes the new units.. unless your like me and a glutton for punishment bgs are a losing prospect and not worth the time effort or units/money you put in . and I am addicted to them so I will keep playing them(yea I am a sucker) and for some reason I actually kinda like them.. but I go in knowing I will NEVER get a even return much less profit from the activity

@GOODGAWDNOOOO


Well keep doing it than and you will get the rewards for sure.


When you get one, Share it here so we can prove the point that you will get rewards if you keep doing it. (& yeah that reward worth waiting)

perfect example just did a lvl 75 defense bg sent in 159k.. lost over 700 units(about 120k) got back a whole 39 rockwings and no offense units(sometimes they throw a couple in)  so after reward still cost me over 100k for just 1 bg

@GoodGawdnooo


please do not count that your rewards are just from BG to BG,


Your bank value is still their & you will get payout for that.


You send in units worth 1 Million, get payout for 0.2 million


0.8 is their and you will get it back.  All you need is to try/identify one strategy that works in BG

This is nonsense. You're basically saying you get back everything you wasted (0,2 + 0,8) - and only need to discover the right strategy?

Right! There are people here that play 100s of BGs a month, and they're all still waiting for that 0,8 to magically appear in some fantastic payout. The total sum of everyones experience is that Plarium now makes sure you get far smaller payouts in total - with that silly PR BS about "now you get something every time"!


How bad at math do you guys think the players are?

First of all i don't know how others are but i know your level now.


2ndly investments do not give you any immediate return & this is the world wide rule.


To be more specific you get 8-12% interest on the units you lost in BG, if we come to the RL life rule if we put 1000 in bank we get 8.5% in how much time? Do you have any idea about it?


Than put that rule here & learn to listen & accept instead of creating more drama.
