As many players seem unsatisfied with these style of tournaments for many reasons  that are listed through out the forum Yet Palarium has continued down this road..

Palarium ask for members feedback and opinions yet for all the feedback they receive .It certainly looks like they will continue with this type of tournament .? So what does the future plan for the 2x pvp hold or will this be removed also ?As this is the only event worthwhile as many have indicated..

In our  league the loss of interest is gaining momentum especially since these tournaments started 3 weeks ago...this is not just myself but many players /league members are also indicating same boredom.pointless to play a game where there are no advantages or rewards for the time required to build / raid  ..to be an active player in the league .

Are Other Marshalls also seeing this among there  leagues? I,m sure our league is not the only one noticing this .?

It is my belief that many more will leave with the continuation of this style of tournaments  if it becomes the way the game will play or should we say  pay to play .

As it has been a noticeable trend  over the last few months with players leaving..or new people start and 2 weeks later leave.?

yet in pvp warfare thread it is indicating that these type of tournaments will be more regular .?

Can Palarium please confirm that is the path stormfall will  go .

If you mean Heats here, they will disappear soon. They are a part of August Event.

If you mean some other Tournaments, you can always suggest something to improve them. We are making many changes to the existing Tournaments, and we want your opinion.

From June we had nothing but pay to play tournaments. The normal 2X PvP has been gone for months if not a year now. what we have is a bad version of the 2X PvP.

I have noticed that Plarium have monthly tournament, that tend to run for and extended period of time, to benefit the Pay to Play( the tournanet), and Pay to win(the tournanet) Players. Will these continue till month infinity?


The heat tournament have made coiners considerably happy, but other players, moderate coiners, say they must simply voetsak together with the legendary Pay to win tournaments.

Biohazard has killed the forum.

i,m asking if the formula /game module being these type of tournaments is to continue .stacked tournaments/worthless rewards

to the point where participation in not worthwhile for the larger percentage of players .?

To be honest I dont see any point in anyone making suggestions .Palarium have not taken any of the feed back into consideration or used it to improve game play ..palarium have snubbed the players opinions only to have gone the opposite way with there own agenda to imbalance the game even further.The majority of players have asked for better rewards removal of these type of tournaments,worthless rewards.[ removal of 50% bonus only available to money players ] members have asked for  a more even playing field ..reality is its clearly a pointless exercise to suggest anything.

Palarium,s agenda is simply to extract money where ever possible ..sadly to the demise of this game .what was once a good game is now deteriorating very quickly. i,m sure i am not the only one with this view / opinion.

I would rather see a system where, grind/spend time vs pay to save time. With an actual balance to it.

but that is not the option we are presented with. 


i was a coiner back when this game reflected those balanced options. there were parts of the game we could grind in, and parts we could spend in.....



now theres no grind.  no pay off for time spent in the game.

The main issue is not the payoff for game time,,, it is the direction it is flowing. 

Many suggest things to help,, plarium does the opposite and yet they still make money by giving out pixels...


I have not been doing these tourneys/contests, due to low/no payouts for troops spent.

Even if you don't do Tournaments, you still raid, do BGs, build, etc. So you still get points in Tournaments.

I always thought a raiding tournament would be good. 

All other aspect of gameplay have tournaments except that (other than weekly tourni). And raiding is pretty much the only gameplay that requires true activity - so a tournament like that would reward real players as opposed to coiners. 

It would be nice to give at least one thing back to them.

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

Due to flawed map mechanics,, ie too many empty sectors.. yeah i can raid for res,, but pvp and bgs are almost either unfound within reason or not worth my time...

I can upon rare occasions find pvp,,, not about to wait for tourney/contests. 24 hr raids for helping clanmates is getting pretty rediculous.

Also,, since your in a listening mood,,, yet again,, you want more tourneys/contest,,,,,,

DO SOMETHING WITH TROOP BUILD TIMES.... this has been an issue well over 2 years,,,, oh yeah,,,, forgot,, we can buy and not make troops...

Yet on server 2 we have the opposite problem - all raids travel at 3x normal speed making it far too easy for sneak raids and not enough time to get reinforcements

Raiding not for Rss, but for PvP ;)

Then you can't really call it a raiding tournament, can you?

Quite sure when my viking ancestors went on a raid, it was for plunder, not just for butchering people (that was just a side effect :p)

The grind is still there, but the balance is so skewed that the payoff for the grind is far reduced.  You can still do the grind and if you play smart, you can grow your troops, but our means for non coin growth have been somewhat nerfed while the shopportunities to grow by $ have expanded.

Well, yes :) You're right. By the way, I like the idea of a raiding Tournament. And I hope our devs will also like it.

Yeah, totally!  They couldn't rebuild Units like you can in Stormfall (well, they could, but it would take some time), so people were a precious resource.
