Why did you remove the 5 minute free boosts?

We had them on the 2 kabam servers but now they have gone

Those were removed a long, long time ago. Well over a year, maybe even two years ago.

I think that the official explanation was that people somehow managed to misclick and then would spend rubies and complain, or something of a sort, but don't hold my word for it, as it was really a long time ago.

Not sure but I believe we still get them from tournaments. Unless this is pertaining to something else.

Checked with the CM. There are no free boosts in the game.

@Icy: This is not about the boosts that you get from various quests and events. This is about that feature when you could click "Boost" for rubies, but the cost would be zero rubies if the time was really short (under 5min or something similar, I don't remember exactly).

Crowbar, you are referring to the 5 minute free boost for unit construction where kabam players could build instant bonnies and maras.
I would love to see this returned, all they needed to do was add a warning when accidentally spending rubies.


I am referring to the 5 minute free boost for all constructions and discoveries which was never removed and is still available in all other plarium games

We still get them from basic reward pack, maybe you are just out of them at the moment?

No

I would never refer to those as 'free' boosts when they have a price tag of 30 rubies each lol

The boosts were not Items but were part of the game design

Yes, that. But this was a long time ago. I still remember the uproar on the old forum (maybe even the one before it) when that feature was removed.

Me too, but apparently the devs don't want to return it. I don't know the details.

I'm pretty sure that those two (for units training and for construction) were the same thing.

I am absolutely certain that they are not connected and that free boosts were always available on both kabam servers. Low level players like me were still using them on the final day before they pulled the plug. Higher levels probably didnt need them.

There was a recent post and screenshot on the kabam forum because the free boosts were not advertised, but were actually shown as costing zero rubies.

Alyona answered this post and said it would be fixed, but we can no longer access kabam forum for details, unless someone can find cached pages

Dont you find it a bit odd that they ADDED these boosts to other games and REMOVED them from PToF?




p.s. While searching for cached pages I stumbled across this which might help lower level players attack prizes without losses

I do. I asked about it not long ago and I was told it want be returned to the Pirates. Maybe something changed (or I misunderstood). Will point Alyona here and we'll see if she has different info.

Hi! You're right, we had this feature on Kabam, but it was removed from the game later. Now it's added to other games where we have an Instant upgrade feature, that allows upgrading Buildings instantly for Rubies. 

The bug you've mentioned actually existed. Free boost option appeared, but charged Rubies. And it was fixed (this free boost option wasn't supposed to be present in the game, so it was removed).

This has nothing to do with instant upgrades, which was added to other games on 1st March https://plarium.com/forum/en/stormfall-age-of-war/-news-and-announcements/36277_discover-and-upgrade-lost-arts-instantly-/

This has got nothing to do with free boosts for unit building which often charged rubies


Why are you making this so complicated? It is simple

Read this https://plarium.com/forum/en/stormfall-age-of-war/-news-and-announcements/29321_increase-your-castle-s-power-faster-/

and then explain why it was removed from PToF yet added to all other games

Right now our developers have decided to add this feature only with the Instant upgrade option. It was available in the past in some games, but things change ;)
