Twice now you have removed my post/topic about my views and conclusions on the new bg mechanics without warning or word but just instant removal.


All this tells me and the players who have read my topic/article is that i was right and if thats the case then this game under the current leadership will run into a dead end and in the meantime the developers will milk it for all its worth by exploiting their own game and its mechanics. Ever wondered why BG mechanics are kept a secret? Because they want the ability to exploit it without it being obvious to the players.


In the last year ive only seen updates & actions from Plarium & Co that lead to less gain and more pain for the non-coiners (people who don't spend money or hardly any at all) compared to people who spend a lot. 


But at the same time you have lowered the rewards to players across the board via BG's & tournaments also ive noticed lately aswell, all for the purpose of basically if you want a big army to contend with anyone who spends money you have to spend money also. They will continue to exploit the game with each update by confusing the players with a bunch of new items/fancy words but in turn will also decrease what you get overall unless you pay money to get right ahead or back to the rewards you were use to getting before they nerfed them.

This is for the sole purpose of warning other players before it gets removed for a third time, twice now I have been proven right and i am disgusted to see the hide on Plarium for the sole purpose of money. People would sell their soul for money these days and its pathetic. 

If you want to see the message (its quite long) explaining the real reason behind plariums recent BG mechanic changes, just message me Nemstar in-game. I'm Captain of the Light Brigade if that makes it easier for you to find me.

Also a extra note, if you plan to do BG's... don't. Unless you 100% have figured out a solid way to make a profit from them with this new method. 


I just did a bunch and surprise surprise was taxed more than usual and rewarded with units equal to what was remaining in the BG after i yellow bared it so they have either really messed up by i guess if you weaken a BG those troops/resources sacrificed go to the black hole void? I seem to be getting rewarded only for what i kill as i complete the bg so how does that work for someone who accidently doesnt send enough but almost kills it. Then finishing it they get like 1/4 of what they would of got before completing it one hit.


Your methods & explanations are wack. I thought all you did was add extra taxes on bgs plarium but no what you have done is actually ruin bg payouts entirely....


I am amazed lol


Edit: Not surprising these changes come in so frequently that most people think you are making it harder to solve with the same rewards where as u just change things around so less is given for more. Cute :) if i was a business man id go into a partnership with you lol

We've fixed the exploit that allowed some players to gain more troops than they were supposed to. This is the only true reason.

Fair enough stick to your explanation of as to why you guys did it but I don't believe it. The method of exploiting the bg mechanics as explained by you guys I myself in fact was using & i know for a fact that most players with a bit of experience within the game (a few weeks) where doing the same method as it yielded the biggest rewards. 


Basically all you have said to the players without fancy words is, we have decreased the overall rewards from bgs as we have changed the reward system because we think you were getting too much from the game without spending money.


Basically the true motive behind the majority of your updates this last year.


Tell me I'm wrong lol

Why do you think they expanded the number of BG's to 60?

To allow you to make more profit in troops per day? Not likely given by all accounts the tax increased at the same time. 

It's to overload you with her hero items that you can't hope to convert to moon points without spending money. The limit on slots and the time taken to trade items are unnecessary blockers that are added to to the game purely to frustrate - they hope frustrate you to spend money.

When you understand what and why they do things it is mind blowingly cynical. If I had kids I wouldn't want them playing the game such is the level of exploitation Plarium undertakes. 

It's a shame these people we entrust our hobbies to (Plarium are not the only ones, this is industry standard tbh) see maximising short term profits as their only goal and their shareholders/owners as the only stakeholders.

Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

Completely agree DJMoody! Well said!


It's mind blowingly cynical indeed. But whats worse is that you have to understand that the rest of the world works exactly the same way! Let's give the people something & then exploit it for even more gain. Greed is what has destroyed this world & im just mad i cant think like the rest of these low lives with no morales, does anyone think of the future anymore?

I can't speak to what Nemstar is saying, but I will add my 2 cents. Changing bg's hasn't really changed my strategy much, however, having the lower level bg's disappear as you gain in level, while nice on some level (not having to clear out 20 bg's of level 5 and under) it's made it almost impossible to build any momentum to hit the higher levels. I'm having to start at level 56 which means I can do 1 maybe 2 bg's a day safely. I'm sure you'd rather we spend more time than that in the bg's. Also it seems that almost 80% of the bg's are now infantry focused. Who has time to build up 20k in pikemen? The other 10 % seems to be cavalry with the remaining split evenly between occult and beastiary. Something needs to give.

Awesome sauce, my bg's just started at lvl 62. Sure that's going to happen. Have fun with that.
