It seems an interesting addition, but was that necessary to destroy the city name appellation? could'nt you just add a general, without us having to re figure the names? and only two options. please give us a variety of generals figures, city schema, and avatars (ancient Greek based, that fit with the game theme, not crazy space  pumpkins and stuff...) 

It's a feature. you don't have a City name anymore. Only General's name. 

By the way, we will develop this feature and add more interesting stuff related to General

Oh really don't you see ?

Sometimes you'll get equipments, most of the time you get coffers and keys (that don't match) so you have to buy the keys to open the coffers and you end up with useless keys...

Moreover, this feature's aim is to entice players to play persians = to kill their troops = to revive them = to spend drachmas. Plarium probably noticed that most players had abandonned persians cuz they're crap unless you are a coiner, so they needed something new here. Sure we can spend 5 years building lights and heavies to eventually get a fully geared general but who will be playing in 5 years ? This system would be nice if it wasn't for the coffer/key part. Like play persians > get some equipment > nothing more ; but they had to add some money grab, again.

Of course, we can always not play persians and not get any bonus, which will increase the gap between big persian players (coiners) and regular players. They use the same system on Nords we know how it ends...

You can receive a Key only if you already have a matching Coffer. Just a hint.

I have some questions: to what level it can boost the pieces of equipment of the general? There are differences in male general statistics or female?


Thanks!
Level 5 is the max. And there's no defference between male and female General.

Well.. Sparta was the name of a city.. and ALL cities have names.. 

Innovations, added content, new features is all good but this is just plain silly..

Doesn't change the fact that you have to buy keys or play millions of persians :) On Nords (where I do a lot of "persians") I have a ratio of 6 coffers for 1 key, which is pretty lame and forces me to throw away lots of coffers... I have done a bunch of persians here and I have about the same ratio... 

Btw, if you want ppl to play more persians, here is a suggestion (freely given) : make sure the bank (or several banks) is/are visible, pretty easy to do and would be very convenient :)

A chart showing each item, it's upgrade and stats would have been nice.  We always have to "learn and understand" as we go with changes then we all look for help and support from each other because  administration just throws things at us.

But you don't need to rush and equip your General in one day. be patient and use the opportunities you have

I have a question regarding the general.   Are his bonuses good for all aspects of the game, or only when playing positions?  That first paragraph where is says "Your General is your greatest weapon in the fight against Xerxes!" implies that the bonuses may be only for positions, and not for archon vs. archon.

Do I have a bug in account..... or does EVERY item cost 6045 pieces to upgrade :/ 


considering the most I have got is around 500 for breaking some armour. Is it really that much difference in upgrading, regardless of the strength of item? Seems like its a bug that needs fixing.

The higher the level or rarity of the item, the more resources it gives upon breaking Archon!

The higher the Position level, the better Coffer you can get from there.

Bonuses are applied to your Units. And they can be used anywhere.

Different Item types have different Upgrade costs.

Never in the field of Human Games, has so much been demanded from so few to so many. This is yet another way of Plarium charging us mere mortals to play a game which is deemed "FREE". Not only do they charge for the xtra slots, but the troop rewards in Position Take Over have been drastically reduced. Again, if you want to have troops you will have to buy them or spend real money to obtain game money to purchase the over inflated prices for basic troop resources. 


I say we should mount a worldwide protest at this attempt at extortion.

I do think it's on higher level ones. Moreover it's totally random what you do receive Archon. Happy hunting!

the guide is helpful, but it does not tell you that you are liable to lose all your units as you upgrade ' the general ' i have never known such miserable payouts
