can confirm, 1 bar tactic is everywhere on google as old as can be.

Think they hit the nail in their own coffin here. Game is already weak as hell, i never played much persians, but people gonna be loosing interest fast.


The older players are the ones playing persians almost only,if the reward for doing it is really so low, then how they gonna have to play their game. I presume plarium thinks players dont like rewards and just gonna cash out for a game which doesnt supply fun. I guess they removed the fun for many of those players. U have to be able to grow your army by playing the game in some way. Pvp doesnt work since rewards are too low, so u loose more then u get. Not playing the game and just building seems about the only way but well that doesnt sound like fun and pointless. So the only way to grow your army was persians if u did it right, thats been broken down.

Greetings Archon, 

I do not think players consider that exploit 'having fun' and a legit way to grow their armies. Now, the game is more fair and more fun for people not having to fight huge armies.

If you want fair then erase all transactions in the game and also erase armies from long time players or just ones with big armies. I mean it's unfair for other people who don't spend or have played for years. See the fault in logic of being fair? Besides all the update did was prevent new players from "exploiting" persians. Those exploited armies are still out there. I'd like to know how Plarium plans to handle the exploited armies but I'm sure they won't until it costs them money or something.

so how about this?

But still plarium has the nerve to label 1000s of players using the one-bar-method as "thieves" under the pretense of "exploiting a vulnerability" although it could be used by simply anyone. Why bother changing the mechanics instead of including the method in their official tutorials and being fair to everyone?

Hey guys, the fact anything is on YouTube or whatever has nothing to do with the fact it's not a bug exploit...


Actually, before they introduced systematic partial rewards, the way you played the Persians had no effect at all anyway, so advising to play that way wasn't a problem for Plarium.


However, since this method exploited a bug after they added them, it actually gave bigger payouts, so once they've realized this, they fixed the bug.

End of the story.


Actually, just to be cynical, you reported yourselves by publishing the trick ! ^^

Thatbloke, so are you - like Hackerista - saying that Plarium did this because they cared about the "balance" between players? It seems to me that Plarium is more interested in their own "balance", would you not agree? Oh hold on... of course you wouldn't. Miraculously all the moderators and employees think that this was an act of justice to... umm... increase the fun of the game? Such coincidence!

this topic is only interesting to read because it is funny, how those moderators still have no idea what was wrong or what has been changed, but still trying to defend plarium:) last video on youtube was like 5 months old, meaning even before 60 pp per day were introduced, and there is no video that teaches how u can gain more troops. plarium will feel free to make any changes they want to, as long as there r players doing pp- they do not give a fook. leonidas did not even comment anything, close this topic, cause moderators will give u no answers- they just do not know them.

How was it exploiting? You have 0 idea how PP worked. why isnt it a legitimate way of growing armies? I probably had an army 10 times bigger than you but I also coined 8/9 times more than you. This goes for every PP players there ever was. Now the problem is I will coin 8/9 times more than you but your army will be 10 times bigger than mine. You get paid 1000 drachmas/ week stop trying to defend plarium on issues you clearly have no idea.

At least, that's the reason they've referred to. :p

I let you free to interpret this... ^^




OK, I've paid back my last payout on the levels 76 to 100 (currently 96) range by far, so it looks like my first hypothesis (the bank is actually calculated by summing up the payout and the previous partials) should be the right one.

My next payout should hopefully drop on my next attempt, so Id rather hit a high level position. :p


Next time i'll try chipping down positions without finishing them. I should have enough spare defense to use them there. Then I'll see if finishing positions on the go would trigger the next payout sooner, and how it would impact the next bank.

Maybe I should experiment on a lower lavels range, though. ^^

also if moderators said other, the truth is there are less rewards in pp. i'm at 55 pp lvl and i never used tricks. My army before was growing also if i always used mounted peltasts for pp. now i just loose a lot to get some, sometimes (anyway less than before). i don't need to apply algorithms (and don't want to) to understand this. Like the others even I'm getting bored of playing. This policy of pushing to spend money (and I spent some) it's tiring me. I think for a while I will get to play in happy farmer mode. 

off topic (but we get the idea of the respect that you have for the players): do we want to talk about the useless 60 sketches that plarium gave us as amazing gift? you just need to buy other...

I have never stopped doing PPs, I only do them when the XP tournament is on and I am only up to lvl70.

Now, about you.. if you have some knowledge that you would like to share about PPs, please do so.. tell us what is the best way to play them, make a guide or something and maybe people will take you seriously.. 

Posting tedious/creepy/cryptic nonsense all the time and telling players that they don't know what they're talking about, it's quite boring you know.. 

I remember you posting that you were "trying to teach the whole Coa how to play PPs but they wouldn't listen".. I wonder why! 


Edit: Oops, almost forgot.. you should also read that "Macbeth Act 5, Scene 5, 26-28"l! lol

I'm pretty sure literature  has nothing to do with a game of numbers,   but  I read it  and still makes no sense, for this game anyways
