I am so sorry to see they have removed the gift chests for the whole league when a player buys a package.  It was a great way for players that don't spend much to receive a something.  shame when they do a nice thing for the players plarium shut it right down, makes me less likely to spend if I know my fellow Brothers-in-arms are not benefiting

I am one of the players that cant afford to spend a lot of money on the game and I was always excited to log on and see little gift chest from my fellow players.  It was a nice surprise and I am truly sad to see that Plarium has removed them

So do you want game balance or pay to win?

Because there are a bunch of live threads at the moment where people are shouting loud about the lack of game balance and how Plarium have scarified the games for greed.

You can't have it both players!!!

Yeah, these packages made it so that just by being in a league with lots of big coiners you could get thousands of free crystals per day.  I think removing them is a step in the right direction.

Back in July, Oberon was presenting this is a grand new exclusive feature..... then it get turned off with no notice, and one of the henchmen states it was just a termporary thing. 4 months later is not a temporary thing....

This was actually something that benefited a lot of players, and I know in my league some was spending just to give fo other league members. If this is a way to combat the pay to win aspect, its starting in the wrong end, nothing changes any for the big coiners and whales, they just keep trucking.

Open your mind! The fact you aren't thinking at some things doesn't means they don't exist...

Hello, Lords and Ladies.

The thing is that League Chests were added as a temporary feature to test out new ideas in the game.

We’re currently going through all the data we’ve received on player interactions with League Chests. Our Developers will evaluate this data and see how it can be implemented to create better discounts and offers for our players.

Then why was it presented as a "exclusive new feature" and not a temporary test project?

Shame they do something good in the game and take it away.  Way to bring the game down

Well players have given you feedback. The learning is so much about the feature but more that your comms suck big style. Can't really argue with that, intentionally kept in the blind or just incompetence, it's hard to guess which. But needs a step change, the whole Plarium attitude can be summed up as one of total arrogance and seeming disrespect for players.

Might be hard for you to hear but that is how it is. Poll people here if you want decent feedback.

Unfortunately, the information about the fact that it's a temporary feature wasn't included in the news post.

The news was created before the feature was released and added to the servers and the fact that it is a temporary one was overlooked from our end and we're sorry about it.

The feedback regarding removing of this feature was already forwarded to devs.

While it was nice for members who don't spend to get some help from the spenders, removing the chests will not affect the amount of coining, the people with the big egos and wallets to match will still spend - this won't create balance but at least at some point after they use the thousands of 100k food paks they have stashed in the black market they will actually have to raid to build more troops or buy them (likely the latter option lol)

It was just a promotion for Plarium. Trying to make extra money before the company gets handed over in the new year.

If something needed to be removed, the chests weren't it.  That VIP System has got to go.  VIP only "events", bonus sapphires for buying things, free units(prestige units, first crack at Valkyra/Vanguards for FREE.  That system snowballs heavily what people who spend on this game get out of it.  League Chests were 90% resources and annoying hamlet gatherers, and other non sapphire items.  The few sketches and sapphires in those chests were hardly unbalancing to the game.  Basically, on Fridays, I would log in to 35 chests.  So generally 1-2k Sapphires a week.  It was nice for this free player to not have to wait for the couple hundred sapps you get from the events that see all the top spots dominated by the large spenders.  And no, I'm not ANTI COINER.  I'm anti imbalance, and so many things in this game are imbalanced, and we wont even begin to see any changes until the new owners take over.

Hello, everyone!

I've got a small update from devs regarding League Chests. At the moment they're analyzing the data about players interactions with the Chests.

Once it's done, they plan to add Chests to some Special Offers. It means that you still will be able to get them in the near future.

Hello.

There are a lot of factors that are taken into account while choosing members for the VIP program. Among them, the amount of time spent playing the game, how long ago players joined, and their levels of activity in the game. It means that you shouldn't use a lot of in-game purchases to be invited to the program.

Even if you meet all requirements, you still can be not added to the program as it's still in the development mode and we can't include all players in it.

As for the Prestige Units, they don't differ in stats and have the same power as usual Units. The only difference is their image.
