New Upgrade Analysys by Trevor German

At first glance this new feature looks to most as if it’s a coiners dream and significantly slants the playing field against those that care to play for free. 

However, on analysis, it is apparent that this is NOT in fact the case. The new features basically improve the player’s ability to create and gather resources. However, to take advantage of these new improvements, the player already needs to be maxed out and well on his way through the game. If he or she knows their stuff, they are already overflowing with resources every day anyway without spending a penny.

The new features simply give those willing to invest a little pocket / entertainment money something else to work on. Something that may improve their playing experience, but something that in no way gives them a tactical advantage.

If anything, these new features decreases the whale players need to raid so much each day, and may even give a little breathing room to lesser players.

Time will tell of the upgrade designs will be granted as prizes or other means, but whether you use or even need them is open for debate and is a personal choice.

Personally, I like the addition. It requires some thought as to where to best invest, and, at least for a little while, relieves the tedium that the game had become.

"litlle invest" ?!?!?!?!

Wow, i wonder what you think is a BIG invest  in that case.

Just for  1 ( one) lvl up for sick bay u need 800 UD.

1000 UD - 10 000 diamonds. = 1 sick bay up and 1 LZ up.

Niceee.

It isn't a coiners dreams at all. Wonder how many coiners will invest such money for that.

All others - no or less spending ppl? Who cares.

All negative comments against that, even from ppl that spend a lot, means nothing for u. 

Personally u like - yes and not only u. Just, because u play ONLY on test server and do not try to play in games on your own.

Start a base, here, alone, with no Plarium support and we will se how long u will like your latest adds.

Can you add a discount to schematics in the discount generator? Or put up an event where they are 50-75% off?


Maybe consider giving them out as tournament prizes as well.

Not sure where to put this so here goes...How can a player occupy 1740 bases in less than 30 hours?

That works out to occupying 1 base ever minute for 30 hours straight!  Not to put too fine a point but unless this player is a computer it is impossible to accomplish.

Also why are the bases I have occupied not showing up in the current totals?

Last but not least have the techs fixed the bug that removes the last offensive units sent manually to the bunker during a maintainence period?

Please be aware that such issues should be directed to the technical specialists from our Support Team. Unfortunately, we are unable to help you on Forum.

The whole point of the game from Plariums point of view has nothing to do with player enjoyment, it's all to do with the $'s they can make that is why the tech staff and ?support is such a joke

Thank you to all the people that spend money on the game. Thank you for allowing me to play for free. After all plarium is a business not a charity.

Commander...We at Plarium put the players enjoyment in the highest regard..Whether or not you choose to purchase Diamonds is strictly up to you...Granted our Support is a little behind as the volume of request for assistance is sometimes great...Be patient with support..these people work very hard and try even harder to make you gaming an enjoyable experience

When game teams put players satisfaction on first, they try to find ways to make ppl spend and not ruin game ballance. Or to give HUGE advantage to coiners.

Litlle example: Instead of all that new "gameplay improvements" ,  why u don't just make new base skins?

Or new base improvements(decorations)? 

Or something like that?

Instead, all u do this days, is to give more and more advantage to coiners.

This show ppl, that all u care is your pockets. But, what i see is - more and more new high lvl farms in game.

As for support...........

Well, we have to be polite here and to write........ bad words.

wow! no one has posted in here since 2016?..


a lot has changed since then.


to all of you who feel Plarium only cares about money:

if the games they produce are lame, no one will play them. millions of people are playing them now.

they give out rewards like every month, for free. there are other more popular games that don't GIVE you anything.

if all they cared about is money, why not charge an activation fee every month? which they don't...

if money is all they cared about, how come I can win diamonds for free from virtually every tournament and challenge they have?


you fear coiners too much, and fail to report aults when you see them. (just because you report an 'alleged' ault, doesn't mean it will be banned)

Plarium has to be absolutely positive that said account is in fact 'an ault' of another player.

how can they tell who it belongs to? without tracking IP/addresses?

even if they did track IP's, how do they know multiple people with separate accounts don't log on from the same house?

or maybe they are friends visiting an internet café together?

I mean how can Plarium stop them? with out us, they cant.

if you get raided by bigjohnny1, bigjohnny2, and bigjohnny3 you should really report them. what's the worst that could happen? 

I've seen like 15 people in the same combine all have the Plarium shield on at the same time, it dropped and they all became raidable at the same time. what dose that tell you?


as for the upgrade designs:

with what Plarium has done with them since then, I am pleased with the outcome. they are rewards for tournaments, and there are events that discount the designs. 

I like how I can use them to make specific units I use more often than others more powerful. (needed for upgrades past Lv.30)

I like that my bunker can be upgraded to auto-bunker everything I produce. that my units are Finally safe from harm.


nice job Plarium! keep it coming!

Name me one. 


No need to kiss ass here. If you wish to run around in favor or Plarium be our guest. Maybe they have an opening for you on their Moderator team and you can spread the word on all their platforms.

I played games and still do play for about 15 years now and i have got to say that soldiers inc is by FAR, the most pay to win game that i've come across. This concept in general is nothing new in the gaming industry and plarium surely did not invent it. Soldiers inc. is build arround spending money. Yes, plarium does not force anyone directly to spend money but anyone with a bit common sense and little expertise know that this is a successful business model. However, the way how soldiers evolves has become worse with every update. Sure, they have added more content and "features" but most of it is only accessible for those that are willing to spend a good amount of cash. I am not here to blame anyone, it's just amusing to see that there are people, that believe, a company like plarium is here for charity, enjoy or entertainment.

thats a really good idea! asking to be a moderator. im just going through a lot right now and wont have the time. later on though, yeah, definitely will check that out.


starcraft2, Diablo3, Ultima Online.

will not GIVE you anything. 


and im not kissing ass, i know even Plarium has it's problems. but he is right, Soldiers inc. is not a charity and without funding, it can't be Publicly available. and i see no problem at all helping support a game i love. if you don't love it, thats fine too. just remember, nobody is forcing you to play.

You really must be doing something wrong, because I receive(d) for FREE:

On Starcraft@2:

  • Veteran gifts
  • 20th anniverisay gifts
  • And many more
On Diablo3:

  • Exchange gear for free between players
  • Blizzards legendary gifts
  • And many more

With Ultima Online:

  • Always FREE Holiday gifts
  • Keep in mind that Ultima went FREE to play after 20 years
  • Veteran rewards
  • And again many more

Once payed for a copy of Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2 and you can play n access every aspects of the games. However, comparing these games with each other is kind of pointless to begin with, different business model, philosophy, genre and games in general. 


The real issue with soldiers inc is what it has become. The balance between the different groups of players were relatively fair. With every update, the gap between those has vastly increased and there is no light seen at the end of the tunnel. No newcomer will ever be able to catch up with the rest of the community UNLESS they spend a huge amount of cash. We are not talking about 10$ a month or so, it goes more into the hundreds or thousands... Plarium is milking this cow and ultimately the game will die, that is when nothing is going to change. It happened in other games that share the same business model and it's only a mater of time...
