Do we get 150k with caravan trick? Or max 100k no matter what we do. Either is bad for me.

With getting 150k with the caravan it'll make raid targets dry most of the time.

With 100k max whatever we do that means I have wasted sketchies on the market.

Oh well.

In Stormfall your max raid is 50K with a max 50K push for a total of 100K max raid for each maximum 10 raids at a time.

So the caravan capacity. That I have bumped up with soulstones and sketches is soon to moot?


What kind of reibursments will you be handing out to those that did it long hand?

 Why am I bothering with half this if stuff if the Dev's are just going to come toy with later anyways?


Why after seeing the various feed back in other forums that argue against many of the changes being done always answered with the same air of arrogance and a too bad attitutude. Then introduced here as if it the best thing since sliced bread? 


Why in other forums are there whole threads. Series of threads that are packed with the single message "listen to us"?


I coin a little. Not much and play the hell out of this game. I will continue to play but until pakarium can figure out what it is really try to develop here with all its testing across the board. Here and in other games. Then I will just go long long hand. Not spend another penny and watch you all sink this ship. In the meantime I will work on new tricks to bleed you back for as much coin as I can. :)


Bring on the strategy!

not really true after the sketches were in the game we all could only increase the carvans with soulstones to 32k before it was 36k it means you need to make 1 upgrade on buildings more to hit the capacity of 50k for caravans.

Practically irrelevant, Plarium doesn't care, they never will care. Offer good, hardcore game for 10 years, giving the community the best experience has changed to grab as much money forcefull from as many players as possible, while offering as low content as possible, and once players pocket are dry, inflate ships, and repeat. Sink, steal, repeat. 


Meanwhile in the Untamed land, bots are dry, inactives are dry, Players are out of option,s. Quitting rate is at 5 per week. I am also thinking of pulling the plug on the untamed. 


Dark plain, on the other hand has become a coiners heaven, cheating through nasty Plarium connection by super leagues has become strife. ''Did you know, i got a message from a friend, weeks before hand, telling me to make sure I buy sapphires cause the will be a 75% and 50 percent discounts.'' Very common phrase


Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.....Gedleyihlekisa: Oracle the postremogeniture

Seriously - you render useless the benefit people paid money for and then say you aren't taking anything away.

That kind of response which is neither candid nor sincerely addressing the issue will just cause rage among the player base.

It's only pixels for the love of god, You can refund them to people are zero variable cost. A well balanced and rational developer would do it without hesitation because they would realise it's their goldmine paying customers they are alienating. Failarium is so money grabbing it's blinded to looking beyond it's own nose. It's kind of hilarious to watch you fail sometimes, stabbing yourselves in the foot as you go.

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

this is why i haven't made a purchase in 9 months.  being told "this is not a technical issue", when it was, and even if it wasn't, where are the big boys who can make an executive decision and refund 4k worth of sapphires while taking back troops never meant to be revived.  they are pixels!  yet for the player it changes the gameplay.

I don't know but this has drifted WAY off topic, which is the flag game


what I want to know is, if I get a 1hr protection after my fotress is hit why then can a league hit my fortress in under 1 hr


now  its never been said,  but I am guessing like with a shield the protection is removed when you hit their fortress back,   but since they hit me I should be able to hit them back  RIGHT?


but NOOOO  they hit me twice in 46 min, and I cannot hit them back

someone please tell me how it is I can get attacked in 13 minutes with 1 hr protection


this is just messed up


but of course when I go to hit the SAME LEAGUE back ohhhh nooo  they are under protection

Did you join your league in the last 7 days?  If so you will not be able to attack fortresses or beacons until you have been in the league for 7 days.

actually no I am marshall of my league, andhave played this event 3 times now


but let's for arguments sake say that's why I cannot attack,   why is it my fortress can be attacked in under an hour, and I see others out there with 2 hr protection


I sat at WATCHED the timer run out on one fortress  clicked it within 5 seconds and   FORTRESS IS UNDER PROTECTION


adn it's still screwed up that a league ranked 51 can take flags from a league that ranked 299...


right now a league ranked 69 holds  61 tier 2 flags

yeahh  ONE tier 4 league has 61% of ALL the tier 2 flags


few hours into the event and only  7 tier 2 leagues have ANY FLAGS at all


this is the CLASSIC example of stepping over dollars to pickup change


IF the 300 lower leagues didn't have to defend against the top 100 leagues they MIGHT put out some defense and thus troops die and they spend some gems to replace them


and yes that's right, tier 4 & 5 are the leagues  ranked 1 - 100 and tier 3, 2 & 1 (ranked 101 - 400+) have to defend against the top 100

but when a 299th ranked league has to defend against a league ranked 250 places higher,   its dumb to put out defense just to have it smashed IMMEDIATLY


the tourny would be more fun more balanced and therefore more competitive there by MAKING YOU MORE MONEY



you might as well add a note that says,  "this event is for the top 100 leagues and everyone else is just there so they have someone to beat up on"

If anyone in your league had hit the fortress there is a waiting period before any other member in the same league can hit the same fortress, the whole league is bound by the time but just because league A hits your fort that doesn't mean league B has to wait to hit only League A has the waiting period.


So you or your members have to wait to hit back but 50 different leagues may hit you once, I am sure if you look back it wasn't one league hitting you repeatedly but a number of leagues hitting you 1 time per waiting period.


2) Yes I will complain about the time of the event, maybe cycle the start time. If you have one event start at 0:00 UTC make the same event start at 12:00 UTC the next time so all get at least a better chance to involve different members per event. Same should happen with all events

By the way, in Total Domination we're testing a new raiding mechanics. There is a daily limit on raids, more Raid attempts (for those who can't reach the limit with just 10 Raids), and an extended limit for each Raid - 100k Resources. I'm not sure if it comes to Stormfall some day. As I said, we're testing it and gathering player feedback. For most players it doesn't really change anything, but I think it could affect the situation you've mentioned above. How do you think?


Hi !


Let's be clear, if this is implemented, I will definitely quit SF. The weekly raiding/siege tournaments are the only way to get saphires in decent numbers for non-crazy coiners. If you implement that, all the people who have invested months to get market lvl 22 and thief guild lvl 21 to do 100k raids, and made a long list of castles which they can raid for ressources will loose all the advantages they have built up over time. Who cares to have 50k caravans if it does not bring an advantage in the raiding tournament. Your answer above in the thread is far from candid.


Yet another terrible idea...


Regarding the capture the flag championship, if you want to improve it, you have to find a way so that much more leagues can take part. All flags are taken by top 10-50 leagues in few seconds. Afterwards, there is just no point in fighting for them. One solution would be that each league has MANY flags, that are hidden in the league castles. No one knows where, so that you have to raid many castles to find them.


When you do, they are stored in your forteress and can be stolen ONE BY ONE by opponents leagues (with 1 hour freeze between raids). You also have to violently reduce the size of league tiers: 1-10; 11-20; 21-30, etc. and allow only league to gain flags from their own tier and maybe the next one. And it should be much more simpler to find which league is in your tier than now...


This way, you would have a capture the flag tournament in which all could participate, with uncertainty (where are the flags?) so that the tournament is not decided in 5s, with a long-lasting reward for your efforts (with 1 hour freeze, you can loose at most 24 flags per day in your fortress so that you do not loose everyting in the last few hours of the tournament). This would be MUCH more fun.

All feedback and suggestions regarding the Flags Tournament was passed to devs. But they need to analyze the in-game activity data to make any decisions. As soon as I get any information from them, I will let you know.

Lets be fair, any meta data analyzed is based on customers spending patterns and how much sapphires get bought when and were. So even you got x amount of players protesting and don't want something, and a y amount that spend. Its always in the favor of the spending patters even majority fo players is against something. Its all about the stone cold cash... and that is the bottom line -)

We're wasting our time. Plarium has proven by recent actions that they don't care what we think. The only thing that is going to impact them is us sitting on our wallets and refusing to buy into their schemes. 

I think, therefore I game.
