before the tournament I made a video for my teammates and help them understand what to do to protect their troops as well as possible. I do not know whether it is possible to post the link here to show it. If you want you can look at it and I have done more to explain many things in different languages because my congregation is made up of many nationalities.

I am not very good but I do my possible ^^

Thank you for sharing your experience, it's really useful! Have you tried to write some kind of a guide?

No I only included in the video what I learned during the game and by my older mates. I've made other but always to explain how to do certain things such as obscure in Becon or pour the runes of fidelity. All little tips that many young players do not know.

Well, I for one think it stinks.    Tearing beacons apart in the massacare has been the most fun part of the game.   :'(

I'm sorry to know you're upset :( 


However, there are many players who don't like this feature. So, as a compromise, we've decided to reduce the frequency of this event.

It great how you steal defeat from the jaws of victory.

Had you listened initially and never even launched the event everything would have been fine with no unhappy people. 

You run it for months, publish responses that indicate you have stuck you heels in the ground and will never listen. People resign themselves to the fact it's here to stay and adapt the way they play to the new order.

Then suddenly out of the blue you decide to effectively remove it (who knows when the next event is coming).

So yeah, now you have a load of unhappy people that it is being taken away. You messed people around with your total mismanagement and high handed "we know what we are doing we have analytics" attitude. Next time you might realise the players know a lot more about this game than you do (they play it 24/7 after all).

I posted that this event was likely to be the tipping point for a massive reduction in activity. It became not specifically about the event, but that Plarium wouldn't listen to the united voice of the players. You killed any last lingering hope in Plarium. Now 5/6 months later when it's too late you respond. Utterly frustrating.

Djmoody, as you may know, several departments work on analyzing of such features and they rely on analytics data, marketing research and other information they receive through their research channels. From my side, task of Community Manager is to pass feedback from players. 

I my previous responses I told you that we don't plan to cancel this Event, because many players do like it. And considering all the infromation, we have made such an decision.

Shame experience and knowledge and understanding of the game doesn't figure. I have that in spades btw and would be available for consultation at the right price;

Any insight into the new frequency of the event and when the next one will be? My continued activity in the game is based on the answer, the not knowing bit has me very close to quitting (having put our league strategy partly in the hands of this event being a regular part of the game).

I can't  tell the exact frequency since it can change.

20th Feb Beacon Conquest followed IMMEDIATELY by yet another Beacon Massacre

You didn't really listen, did you?

Just more empty platitudes

The free revival failed to work for me, The massacre revival tab did not appear, and the Infirmary is wanting to charge sapphires to revive

I only lost 7 units, so no big deal - all defense units are worthless in these games anyway, so I won't be sending a ticket lol

But I would like to know why, and how many others lost units for no reason
Many will not even notice the stealth losses
