...must do more and better, trying to argue and to highlight some points, meantime i do not buy sapphires and I remain in the hands of 10 alts that stress me, when i am sick hello hello plarium



Great posts you do. That Plarium do more and better is something I have hoped for for a long time. As far as I see - it has not happened and it will not happen. What happen instead is that high level castles end playing and league members take over the account and use them. So the multi account using is increasing and being much more of a problem. Early on it is about growing and later on it is about killing your enemies. I share your views fully Jumy. What I do nowadays is acctually to take pleasure in spotting multi account users and try to deal with them and to feel honour and goodytwoshoes feelings that I am an honest gamer in a stormfall world full of cheaters. Reporting them is nowadays a waist of time. I read in another thread that IP-checks combines with thought process is not used by Plarium. 


My advice to you Jumy is to enjoy being the good gamer guy/girl. Feel the frustrational thrill when you deal with cheaters. And I know the feeling I have plenty of alts around me that stress me. Message me in game if you want more encouraging how to deal with it and not stop playing.


Regards, mindful


Question to Oberon.


Is it not time for a huge overhaul on how you deal with cheaters?

Mindful, I think you may have misread it because im pretty sure I know which thread you are referring to... It was written that they are not a sure 100% confirmation of alts and thus should not be relied on solely, Plarium does do IP checks and I have confirmation of it.

Hello dear Oberon I would like to ask you how do you feel about players who are using their family members FB accounts as alternate castles.

Well if you ask me, alts are bad and everyone who is using them should feel bad. 

As I said, we are doing everything possible to rid of bots and alts. 

As for the speculation that likely 95% players have alts, rest assured that it ins't true. The fraction of alt Castles in the game is very low compared to the real players. Overwhelming majority of players are very real.

How come there are no special events and discounts for Orthodox church New Year and Chinese New Year?

In Stormfall we're using the Gregorian calendar (the most widely used calendar), so in Stormfall there's only one New Year holiday and that is January 1.

Is there a limit to the number of friends on the sideways scrolling list with avatars on the bottom of the main screen? If not then there is a bug...I have a few friends that do not show up there but are on the list in my profile.

Goood evening Lords and Ladies. I come here to ask you something about an issue I bumped into. After I defended my castle succesfully, not once but three of four times....killing nice amount of units. I did received Tournament Points....total amount around 20 points...when my brother won between 400-500 points from defending his castle agains nearly the same amount of troops.

I`m sending here some screenshots, so you can see it.

Sounds like a bug, mine works fine... If you keep scrolling you should be able to see them

The points look fine to me, I would of thought you would of got a very small amount more however it looks correct... Smaller battles give lesser points, especially when it is a 1 sided battle.

Using simpler words, you have to loose troops to get points 

You tried to be smart - that isn't sense of this strategy game. Nicely, loose as much as you can troops, and you will get points to be awarded with about 20% of your lost, take a wallet, buy sapps, and for them buy troops. Or  use amazing Plariums joke - reviving units - and revive them for half price. At least they were your. If you haven't enough sapps, simple buy more sapps and read Lord Oberons text about smart using sapps.

Just to be sick totally. But you will have almost what you had before battles. I hope that this will help you to understand your misunderstanding of this game.

Oberon,


Can you give us an option to send a gift to another player? I know it can't be troops, but one of the hearts you have for Valentine's day, a troll or a lawn ornament of some kind.  I just think that would be awesome.  I was just talking to one of my league members, getting to know each other and today's his birthday.  How awesome it would have been if I could have sent him a troll for his castle or a Valentine.


Please give us this option.  I think it would be a lot of fun. It might even help smooth over any hurt feelings as well.

Excellent idea, Ylla!

I've been waiting for something like this since I started playing :)

Hello I have a question do you have scheduled returning to old settlements or will you keep with hamlets ? Because 99.99% of hamlets are unoccupied, thus so far it means that the update was pointless.
