Hi Falbala! 

Currently, we are focused on game optimization to make your gaming experience comfortable. The Navigator's search radius was reduced to improve the game performance. 

We appreciate your understanding.

i used a lot the watch tower to find my invaders and ghosts and avoid disconnexion 😢- was very useful  for bunnies, gift invaders and pumking 👻 or when i hunt one type of invader or ghost 

when i search by moving on the map with the mouse-  it disconnect a lot 

i had less problem when i used the watchtower😔

Was also surprised, nothing was announced on the game or facebook 

for fighting not big change - except it will be harder to find opponents - but for the rest that won't change as opponents troops are so fast we can't see with the watchtower what attack

I cannot say that I have noticed any improvement in game performance yet but if reducing the range of watchtowers is a step in that direction I welcome it.  An improvement to navigating on the global map, for example, would be a help with your disconnections and would be a major improvement to the game.

It is curious that plarium do not issue a patch report in the usual way.  They seem to have no knowledge or understanding of how gaming companies usually manage things.

If this was an update, why didn't everyone drop to 30.

30Ks? Are you kidding? You can`t see anything in 30Ks. Might as well just do away with the blasted watchtower and make us search with our mouse. Then nothing will get accomplished because everyone will be getting constantly booted. Totally redickless.  I for one am tired of all the crap associated with this game. Every time you do a maintenance you break the game as well as make it more difficult to reach clan and individual checkpoints. All in the name of GREED. And give us back our domain guards. Damnit man

Sorry Ivar, but this action style it's impossible to understand.

This game is an infinite grow up, where players spend money to grow up.

You, under "balance" cut the stast of the players.

Yes sure a "limited query" make more light the request to your DB servers, but you take money from players just for after remove what you gived for the money they spent ... Instead to grow up the power of your servers 


So now we have a Watchtower lvl 35 with a range of a level 11 ...... 

Today the watchtower (and who know what more you cutted) and tomorrow you will cut other stuff.

This is not the way to keep player play your game.  (Also with this "limitation" during Holmgang a lot of crash and blue circle, from PC as from smartphone/tablet, like never before from the worse maintenance happened week ago)

You are right about gutting something you paid for, and though it is possible they will return it later, dont hold your breath.

The longer that someone has played the game, the more likely it is that something has been cut that you already paid for, and sometimes perhaps it went uncomplained about, or unnoticed, but its hard to hide the fact the range has been cut in half.

Hi Falbala!

To throw the Devs a bone.  If you want to choose this method of "improving" the game go ahead and reduce it to 1KM and that might buy you a week or so.  However if you want to improve the game then limit how many troops one player account can actually have, limit how many bonuses they can have and things along those lines.  These will not cost you money directly (though they will cost you players), it will however make the game run much smoother since it is not trying to calculate huge numbers of troops boosted versus an even larger number (in some cases) in the defending town.

I am sure like most comments here this will be ignored and i have just wasted my time however common sense says the other way you will improve the game is to increase the number of servers you have and that does not seem to be something that the devs are interested in.

Another  huge  disadvantage caused  by  this  is  for  the  people  that  are  still  farming  to  reach  their  resource   achievements  and  have  18  marches  available  to  use.  I  sometimes wasnt  able  to  find  enough  L6/Uber  resource  tiles  WITH  the  60kms  search  range.  And  once  you  send  marches  out,  you  can't  port  to  use  it  to  look  for  more.

Seems  like  someones  cheap  fix  idea  that  benefits no  player  at  all.

AND  they  are  not  even  being  open  about  doing  it  because  they  have  not  sent  out  any  newsletters  about  this.

I see your point,and understand the frustration of your loss,but irrespective of still needing to get some achievement or level,sending out all of those marches, is highly unlikely to stop is it?

Fogive me if I read it wrong, but the tone suggests its all about me and not about everybody else.

What if the range being so high and the marches so big, that ordinary players cannot get a look in and really is causing a strain  that cant be otherwise fixed.

You are also right ,changes ought to be posted in all accessible areas of the game beforehand.

This could have the benefit of saving everyone involved the time associated with asking questions.

Seguro que hay cosas innecesarias que consumen recursos y se pueden eliminar.

Los desarrolladores no conocen su propio juego?

Para que sirve el chat de Jotunheim? Montón de jugadores poniendo sus propias coordenadas para nada.

Al final uno se cansa de recibir cosas que no valen para nada. Eres VIP 40 y te dan puntos Vip. Tienes el Heróe a 70 y te dan llaves. Chamanes al maximo y te dan Talismanes. Para investigaciones de miles de semanas, impulsos de 5, 10 y 15 minutos. Recursos en cantidades ridiculas. Infinidad de objetos que nadie necesita y se van amontonando en todas cuentas...

Please send you applications to plarium . Maybe then the game works smoothly . Those mainteance every seond/third day sucks and every time when we europeans are playing , why the can not be in night time , at least sometimes ? then it will be more fair for everyone . I think I am not the only one who buy plunder and then loose 1-2days depends how often and how long they are from it or then they should make it cheaper for those who are usually online in the maintenace time , but about this I write so many years here and also Ivar can not see my mails to him anymore about it ;-) 

ANYWAY PLEASE YOU AND YOUR SONS WORK FOR PLARIUM

Hi Berlin Wall! Thank you for your comments on this situation. I handed them over to our developers. 🙂

Also, please clarify, you are not able to write to me in private messages right now?

Waiting for your answer!

I find little difference 30 km iso 60, except for the fact that it will be harder for the greedy ones to steal away all gift-ubers (snowiking etc). I find that a good thing. Off-centre yield may be more safe in hostile territories as well. I assume people who use bots will score less, which is a good thing as well.
