Hi,

recently we had and Persian Position update. Maybe now its worth doing PP after finishing lv 140 PP? (meaning that we get >= the amount of troops we spend in doing) 

Or is it still the same - army to the drain if we do PP after lv 140?

For Kakos only!!!! no dont do it after L140 because upper cap of payout remains the same but interest keeps increasing for each successive payout. in simple terms, you deposit more each time but get the same as the first time. Now stop bothering meĀ

Thanks for answer. Pity that Plarium did not change that. Would like to do some more PP but loosing 10k+ of M.Peltast reduces this wish :)

I had wondered that when I hit lvl 125 (long before they made them up to lvl 140). If interest on [paying back the bank] keeps increasing despite having no way of accessing higher level payouts, then persians are a Ponzi scheme, which are illegal in most countries.

Interest should cap out after the highest level has been attained.

What may keep them from "Ponzi scheme" status is having certain "times" when doing persians offers a profit on investment. Before, I had noticed that doing persians during the coalition mission ("engage positions") typically offered a positive return on investment, but that is irrelevant at the higher levels, as the 3500 points needed to complete that coalition mission is quickly accomplished when doing lvl 125+ positions, indeed too quick to go from payout to payout.

Just finished lv 141 - another big loss in addition to previous losses. Talked with others who tried - all lost troops.

Do not recommend doing pp after reach lv 140.

This game if you can call it that seems to be lets think of new ways for players to lose lots of troops with horrible returns on events.  This way they will feel a loss and have to spend money to get that warm and fuzzy feeling like they are winners back again.  Plarium you truly know how to drive people away from the game.

Wow, I have lost big on Persians.  I thought that troops were never lost.  That their resource value was banked.  this just sucks.  This increasing interest that everybody is talking about coupled with smaller payouts makes it impossible to get your troops back..   Shame on you Plarium, I ask myself why.  Why do you screw over the people who have played the game for years and worked hard to get their Cities finished, their Agreements and Academy done.  all their is left is to build troops and hit Persians.  


Does anybody know how to get your troops back.
