Personaly i am done participating in something that looks like a social experiment with the title: Lets see how much we can make those dummies spend on a game. Used to love this game... Now i dont really find any motivation to bother with it anymore. Great job Plarium and thanks !!

So long dxr250, I'm sure you'll find a game more to your liking.


and plarium set it up to get your money that why they don't care if you leave this one


If you feel the need to quote me, please do so correctly.

And since we are back on topic, did all the cry babies leave as they promised/threatened? of course not.

Did they stop buying drachmas? of course not.


All this theatre and drama for nothing. The game is bigger than ever in fact :)

I think we can just agree to disagree my lady.  You will get new players to replace us veteran players anyway and they will not be familiar with the old ways and our discontent towards all these wacky changes will soon be irrelevant. 

In most cases the squeaky wheel gets the grease but when it comes to plarium, the people really aren't heard and don't have  voice.

It's sad to hear that you feel that way, Rix. Maybe you could share some ideas in Suggestions thread?

Don't be sad, its reality.  I am not upset, I am just not interested in much this game has to offer now.  That's life, you will have many RIX's to take my place that will never know what the old game was like.  Forward progress like you said.  It benefits Plarium and the Noobies. :)


Oh an I don't bother with suggestions because I see all of mine were asked by different people at different times and they all got DECLINED

Not all of them are declined. But, unfortunately, we can't accept all of them.; We have posted an article to give players more information on why we decline certain suggestions and which ones we accept.

Can anybody at Plarium tell me why there are no Bot-Cities within miles of my city, this applies to both Sparta and Pirates. Were Bot-Cities discontinued at some stage (because the nearest ones to me are nearly 500 miles away). This gives new players a distinct disadvantage and we have to travel great distances to reach Bot-Cities, which is extremely time consuming. It's great for the credit card hero's who can jump around the map and park right next to a row of Bot-Cities but it takes weeks to save up to buy a "pool of infinite" if you're not a credit card hero !!!

I would like Plarium to stop adding tedious micro-management tasks and concentrate on improving the fun features of the game.

Why do we need to manage an Amphitheater AND an Academy?  Both are mindless tasks that need to be done every time you log in. They have the exact same function and same mechanics.  Does Plarium believe that cloning a boring feature into two features that double management time is an improvement?

The bogus fight animation is interesting the first 3 times you do it (at best) and then its just an idiotic time consuming task. There should be an auto-fight button that bypasses the screen and collects the winnings.

Why aren't there breaking queues for General equipment? because Plarium wants to sell Blacksmiths and storage slots?  Does it make sense to add boring tasks to a game and try to make players pay to bypass them??? Really?

The only reasons I have not left the game yet is that I have made good friends in my coalition and I still cannot quite give up on the heavy time and money investment I have made in the game... Plarium has only made the game worse during the time I have been playing.  It takes more and more time to manage it and the fun parts are being drowned out in boring and costly add-ons. I have stopped spending money on the game and I support the "Drach Boycott" move.

My broad suggestions to Plarium:

1. Listen to the Players, especially the ones that have played for a long time. I have seen many good ideas posted on the suggestions section of this forum... Practically none have been implemented.

2. Forget about "selling more stuff" you have a core base of players that were willing to put money into the game... I sense that they are starting to waiver.  Make improvements that help you keep those players.

3. Improve existing core features rather than adding more "fluff"

4. While Plarium may own the game the player base is their only real asset... if they leave or stop spending then Plarium has nothing.


 


I wanted to upvote this comment multiple times because it is just so true. What upsets me most about the latest game changes is not only the problems inherent to them, but especially the fact that all the other suggestions remain unheard and bugs and lag become worse every day.


THIS IS THE STUFF THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF 


not creating more and more small tedious daily tasks that consume players' time which would be better spent on the things they loved about the game in the first place ...

Bot Cities were created by players, not Plarium. So unfortunately, I am unable to answer your question, Leleykins88.

I never said that. Unfortunately, there are players that are breaking our rules and using Bot programs to develop their Cities. But I'm not authorized to verify if they are using them or not. I can only confirm that they aren't created or maintained by Plarium.

Guys, I can assure you that players, who use bots, don't use any vulnerabilities, and they don't hack or crack our servers. The program they use is just a substitution of a game client, and they have no functions available that you don't have in the game by using our game client.

There can be different situations when many players use the same IP. Like playing from a public computer, or with using a public WiFi, etc. So we are not planning to set any limits by IP.

I would like Plarium to sort out an ongoing issue that I reported nearly two months ago. I have sent in two tickets about this but it is still ongoing. Nothing has been done about it. I guess Plarium have run out of steam and ideas.

Hi! Which issue do you mean?



The Orichalcum Priviliges issue. 3 months and no reply. Pathetic!
