Offence and defence are imbalanced in 2 ways that might well threaten to kill the server over the next couple of months.

1. Defence is about 3 times more expensive to buy than offence

2. BG split payouts are quite often 50/50 even when they are supposed to be defence heavy splits. This is because the split is done on number of troops not the power or resource value of the troops

So when ppl coin they invariable coin offence. Even the people that coin and don't understand the price difference tend to coin offence because most people want big offence to attack things and boost their ego.

When people do BG's heavily they will over time consume their defence and generate offence, ending up as a very heavily focused offence player. This happens even if you engineer a lot of your payouts as defence (which is not so easy these days due to the high level of randomness to payouts). Best you can hope for if you are very good at BG's is to remain about 50/50.

Plarium should have the stats but I suspect offence outnumbers defence by about 2:1 maybe as much as 3:1.

You will have seen from the beacon map that we are moving to a position where no major league holds beacons. The only entities still holding beacons are ones that haven't been drawn into the recent war. Off > Def problem is already showing in our game.

This could get significantly worse. Lets say one side wins, no beacons for anyone. What will ppl do with all the offence they still have. My guess is they will use for something (otherwise they just quit) and even more leagues will lose beacons. We could easily get to the point that the only way to be a beacon holding league is to have diplo with everyone major because any one of them would have the offence to take you out if they wanted. No one will be able to hold beacons other than at the behest of other leagues. We could be heading for a very broken game.

Solution:

- Change unit prices and revive prices on defence units to be in line with the power per sapphire ratio of offensive units

- Change the BG split mechanic to work off power or resource (not straight number of troops).


(PS have started this thread in the "Game Discussion" section of the forum to get player feedback. It's early days yet but so far unanimous support that there is a problem)


I gave you some feedback in your thread. If there is a real reason to make any changes to our game balance, our devs will do that. 

Please do me a favour then and pass the point onto a dev who is expert on game balance and give me their feedback please.

If I am wrong and you can explain why then I will shut up and go away. I think you will be surprised to find that I am completely 100% right.

I thought that was the point of the suggestions thread. I see loads of stupid time/wasting posts get far more time and effort put into their responses.

Don't worry, your feedback will be passed. However, as I'm not the one responsible for the game balance, I'm unable to give you detailed feedback before I get any info from our devs. 

P.S. It will be passed as feedback, not suggestion.
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

Relics - i think we have asked to be able to trade them already which was not accepted 


Can we please have a 3rd slot to use them?  There are a lot of relics that have a higher value than the resources that you give us to sell them.  Lovar's Blessing for example, we work hard to rank to earn those for our members, however, I have several in my reliquary.


There are so many advantages in the game already what harm would it be to let us use more of our good relics?


I will pass this to devs.

When checking defensive statistic, are the units at a league fortress included someplace? If not, please add this. This will help with the allocation of Dark Essence. Thank you.


Fortress defense will be added to statistic tab.

They are included in total defense. there is no way to see specifically how much in fortress from statistics but it will be added.  .. not sure how you do DE but you dont get DE from fortress.

if you meant beacons the defence is shown in statistics.

Soulstone buying opportunities


Why not make spells of enhancement, moving Gateways, and battleground hunts available for soulstones in black market?

as soulstones are a rare substance in stormfall only able to be earned by the brave and fearless in battle tournaments.

Where i am i have hundreds of extra soulstones i dont use them to often it would be great to have a few more buying options with them.


Some of the new Items are available for the Soulstones. Actually I don't know how exactly our devs make a decision whether to sell an Item for Soulstones or not. All decisions somehow connected with the Black Market are made by several teams, including researchers and market analysts. So it's not the field we can influence from our (community) side. On the other hand, players can earn both: Sapphires and Soulstones while playing the game.

How about, let allies of your league stack defence in your becons, but of course, not draw DE.


Declined. Your Allies still can attack your Beacons, it's just a title with no restrictions.

i hate to take the company line, but, i see the problem with trading things like relics and other items that have been requested is alt abuse.  not just the 3 to 5 alts that mostly are extra characters, with occasional stacking defense or retaliation raids.  "i have no alts myself"  but if items like hero armor, relics and other items were allowed to be traded then there would be players with hundreds and even thousands of alts boosting their mains.
there would have to be a restriction such as trading only your 6-10 personal allies, or league, or 3 trades per week.  also a limit how often you can change your personal allies.
it is unfortunate that players wanting to gain an edge can ruin everything for a majority who just want to interact effectively and socially.

How About rewarding players who spend since it is what fills your pockets and keeps game running. Example person buys 200 in deals that are cheap and varies in prices. As it is right after you receive crap deals at 5 days now only for $99 and $198 with way reduced amounts of sapphires not good for business to make spenders quit spending and that is exactly what it does. Instead why not send them the same kind of deals they purchased or better as a reward for spending. Who cares if they eventually can hold no more in there castle buy then you have made thousands and will most likely have a person who will recruit other spenders they know to join and spend. You will make more $$$ and not piss on your customers for spending seriously everything you sell is free for you to make don't be greedy and you will get more from every spender


You know that we have regular Bank Offers and Special Offers with bonuses.

Special Offers appear according to a set algorithm which is constantly evolving. Several departments work on the development of that algorithm and they rely on analytics data, marketing research and other information they receive through their research channels.

You can receive a cheap or an expensive Special Offer, and it is chosen by that algorithm. Unfortunately, it’s not a part of the game our players can affect directly or pass suggestions about some changes to it. If you don’t like your current Offers or find them expensive, you can wait for better ones, and they will appear sooner or later.

If we reached a stage in the game where some entity is sitting on such a huge hammer, no single entity can defend vs it alone. The only way is to band together. Have allies be able to help defend a becon, or even a fortress, would work towards this. It would be less cumbersome than for some to have to divide up leagues and gather certain players into a own league to try achieve the same.


I've already asked our devs to implement a real Ally feature for Leagues. They said they need some time to consider this idea, but they find it interesting.

hello


in case of technical problem of the page and in case of during the problem we do a raid then plarium should hide our troop when it returns once we wont be able to hide it or  probably until plarium fix the problem of the page we are in a job and we come online much time later

There's no technical possibility to hide all Units. However, if you had any losses because of our technical isues, you can contact our Support Team and ask for a compensation.

hello,some days before you gave me this answer.i apreciate your answer once it is technically  impossible to protect our units in case of technicall problem of your  page i have a good suggestion .


there should be somethink that hide your units automatically ,an item ,a free item that  gives you the chance to hide your units  2 times per  month in case of the player dont hide them in some minuits after of the raid arriviing,one auto machine for all players available 2 time per month in case of technical problem.


all this once probably the pc of one player have an unpredictable problem and he lose connection or probably the page as i said has a problem ,about this 2 reasons it would be good give a safty system for the players


-it is nt against the economy of company once we do many  raids per week so this is just "a small security pad",the need of players on boosts and instant hide is big so it is just a security pad in case of technicall problem of my pc or plaruim page ,:)

-it improves the game security


*dont forget the demands of this items is big so it doesnt go lower the demand and if you dont  want the security free items of auto-hidding is available 2 times per month reduce  the frequency of it ,but i think 2 is ideal number and it is nt against the economy of your company

So at this time I have two Lovar's Blessings activated and an additional 3 sitting there doing nothing but if i sell them they are only worth 3k of each resource - hardly a great reward for the amount of troops I killed to help the league maintain a first position ranking in a tournament to earn these for our members.  A Lovar's Blessing only helps with food consumption so how is that gaining an edge when by using it I would still be running a negative in food production in my castle?  Most offense and defense relics offer less than 10% bonuses so that is not a huge advantage but the ability to use them rather than sell them would be nice since the resource values are always a lot less than a relic is worth.  This would benefit everyone in the game so how does this give an edge for just one person?

Loving the new features!



I would also add Scrolls. Many leagues have their own scrolls banks. Members could select a scroll they are looking for and a person responsible for Scroll bank, or whoever has a spare could send it to the member in need. 

Passed to devs already :)

Furthermore, you guys should really do something with Spies. They are virtually the most useless unit ever. Why not add that to the new feature as well: requesting spy missions against castles, fortresses and beacons. For the latter two, there should be an option for combined league spy mission.

Passed to devs.

Also consider this, when spies successfully spy why do they leave a trace? Successful spy missions need not be noticed, spies should not be killed. Spies could have a fun feature added. They would have the chance (some percentage) to obtain valuable artifacts and items from Lords and Ladies. The spying player could set a goal such as: attempt to obtain a Relic, attempt to obtain a Crystal, attempt to obtain an item from a Hero's inventory or even attempt to obtain League statistics, attempt to obtain information about a Fortress like knowledge levels, or even disrupt the Darkening at Beacons for days - the latter ones can only be combined league spy missions etc etc. This would use Flag tournament tier restrictions. You could request spy missions against castles with no restrictions. But you could only set spying goals within your league's tier or one tier below and similarly you could only request league spy missions against fortresses and beacons if their league is within your tier or one below.

Declined. Spy missions are a part of basic game mechanics. Any changes to this part of a code would drastically change the game balance and dynamics.

... ok am I overthinking this ? :-D

Would be nice to be able to use Urgent Help to request reinforcements to a league's fortress or beacons. Limit it to those with High Priority flag set.

Thank you for this suggestion.  I would like to know if other players support this idea.

Can you ask the Devs to move the action pop-up higher on the screen? When the pop-up appears saying a caravan has delivered, or someone was attacked, it blocks the chat input line, which can be a problem if you're mid-message.  It is a nice feature, but where it is right now it's in the way.


Accepted. Our devs will move it a bit higher.


Even better would be to switch it to the left side of the screen?

I think, therefore I game.

Why would anyone create such requests? Can we get more player opinions?


I still use spies.. but not excessively. it would be nice to be able to request spy missions especially for low level players who dont have many spies it would be very helpful..   

 As for the combined spy missions, I think this is a great idea,, (i dont know why i diddnt think of it)  But it would be a very nice feature

You would have to set a cutoff on how many spy missions league members could send by request or some poor guy will be buried in spies as each league member checked the list and sent. We play in teams sometimes, one spies and others attack, so this would be a nice option.


I like the league spy attack idea as well - as is, it's pretty much impossible to spy a well protected fortress or beacon unless all you have been recruiting is spies.  

I also like the idea suggested earlier about successful spying - why would they be detected if they succeeded against a castle without spies for protection or sentries? Spy vs spy losses yes, but unprotected castle? I think it would make people be a bit more proactive about protecting against spies.

I think, therefore I game.
