    What are you doing? It takes 4 or 5 people to fill a 4-star seat of power. Why do we need 20 reinforcement slots? You need to increase the reinforcement capacity so that defenders can protect their seats of power against 1 million+ troop rallies.

     

    Do you even play this game? Do you know how your own reinforcement mechanics work? How are you helping defenders by increasing the number of reinforcement slots?

    Is this just a way for WB to get more money from us by buying overpriced packs to replace dead troops from hours of hitting our seats, hmm?
    Try balance!

    When reinforcing a Seat of Power the current tactic is to have a strong core -- as few as possible to fill it -- and then a bunch of players who send reinforcements during the attacks in order to fill it back up between attacking rallies. It's entirely possible to get to or exceed, the cap on the number of reinforcing players as people get partially worn down and more keep coming.

    So what WB is trying to do is eliminate all FTP players. As a FTP player you are unable to keep up with the players that are spending large amounts of money. Now they want it so these PTP players can runaround the kingdom and kill any and everything. I do not believe that is what this game was intended for. If WB doesn’t want anyone to play for free. Charge a fee to join the game. And let everyone know this is strictly a pay game and we will make you pay until it hurts or you just quit. I am not going to lie I have spent some money in the game. But I try to help the FTP players to keep growing and try to protect them the best I can. Now I might as well just give up and let the people with all the money in the world play with themselves.

    This is Crazy, Stop adding attack bonuses and buffs and give better defensive options. They are overpowered already. We went from not being able to take a high level SOP to impossible to hold one. Instead of two slot adds it should have been one once you saw the balance was to far the other way. Everything on the attack end is so far based on the P2P options but even at T9/T10 with the buffs its impossible to hold. Its better to abdicate let them take it and attack. It becomes a musical chairs up until the SOP close. And its not even. 

    Listen to your base and your fans. Dont swing too far in the other direction and even it out.

    Cmon this is totally stupid. We need balance. We don’t need more reinforcements slots! We need more capacity. Better defense options. No one can defend vs 1mil+ rallies and even more impossible if y’all keep favoring attack and not defense. But is all about the money, right?

    The update should be introduced from lower seat of powers up to KL. WB are just interested in seeing KL being switched more as that means more recovery packs are purchased.

    Just another in a long line of disappointing updates from a game that requires you to remortgage in order to keep up.

    We need cheaper cost of healing. The cost to heal multiple waves of attacks is huge.

    This is preposterous. When I started the game dragons weren't a thing. Now they are everything. Another bucket for us to throw resources and money into. Initially, the game was largely skewed towards a defensive advantage and strategy needed to be used to launch successful attacks. Now these progressive shifts have made the game entirely offensive. This announcement is just another massive move towards that. You've made the SOPs more desirable, but also easier to attack, without any move towards balancing defense. The previous updates already went WAY too far! It is currently next to impossible to defend a paramount unless you have the attacker completely outmatched with troop levels (defender has 9/10s and attacker has 8s). Strategy no longer has a role to play whatsoever. These newly announced changes just make that worse. It's ridiculous. As other people have posted, it is all clearly just a money-grab by the developers to incur massive healing bills for defenders. But evidently those healing bills weren't enough. Now defenders can't even heal troops fast enough against timed rallies. Tents fill up faster and faster killing troops. Mark my words: WB is going to squeeze this game dry of all strategy and fun, and end up losing players and revenue because of this.

    Strategy? The only strategy there was previously was get as many people willing to spend as much money as possible online at one time. This isn't rocket science -- or even Risk -- it's a pay-to-win mobile game. The strategy is spend money, make friends. The end.

    I've given up trying to be anything. Now I just build up as I can. Tired of blowing money to never grow and no matter how strong I get I can't get in a leige. Everyone that's spent up money says get stronger then we'll think about it. Instead they should be saying thanks for asking. Sure. And instead of wreaking havoc on a low level with nothing for you to get player when you're high level how about puck on you're own size. The big guys are beating up the littles just to keep them from being able to grow by killing so much its killing our armies and causing damage delays and rebuilds.

    Increasing the number of banners would simply increase the trend towards consolidation. That's already an issue that the game has no meaningful reason for people who spend heavily to not group together with as many other people who spend heavily. More banners would increase the number of Seats one allegiance could hold without resorting to shuffling. The unfortunate part is that in order to get the allegiance gifts you open yourself up to being attacked by the allegiance's enemies, and realistically any allegiance with enough spenders to get good value there will have enemies. Your options are to spend, ensure your troops are out of your keep (gathering or reinforcing) or plan on healing.

    This is outlandish . another way for WB/HBO to make you spend . the game has lost its lack luster due to bugs and high cost to play . now WB makes it easier to destroy any team defending seats of power . now higher healing cost. With these new buffs . we need more capacity in sop.

    This is honestly terrible. It's clear they make these updates but don't know how the game works and don't know how they will really affect what happens. All P2P players started as F2P at one point. Making the game more fair would encourage newer players to spend more money, I don't think they would lose money doing balance updates. Honestly WB sort it out.

    In most kingdoms that I've played in or talked with people who play in there are one, maybe two, allegiances that control the vast majority of 3 star or greater Seats of Power. I've seen maps where a single allegiance controlled every single 3 star or greater. The reason for that is that the game had generally rewarded consolidation. Personally I prefer a set of rules that allow smaller groups and allegiances to do something rather than continue to empower the larger groups to lock the game in stasis.

    WB Gamers, please visit the the Bugs and Feedback page, and go to the posting on Suggested Game Improvements. There are a lot of good ideas posted there, and many of the comments and feedback listed in this thread could be added to that posting. There's plenty of overlap in the complaints here regarding smaller keeps being wrecked to prevent growth, troops being killed faster than tents can be cleared, need for cheaper cost of healing, etc. PLEASE add your thoughtful comments there on the list of suggestions already made, and add your own. Perhaps IF the WB Game Dev Team sees player consensus on many of the important changes that are suggested to improve player experience, increase player activity, they may actually make some of these changes.  I've said, and heard others say many times, players are more likely and willing to invest money if they know that their hard earned money won't be lost or wasted through the current game design flaws (I know I would spend more if I knew my dollars weren't wasted), and if some really solid game changes are made, the number of active players will increase from a combination of those who have been playing a long time, like myself, and new players who join, and want to continue because they can advance in the game successfully. This game does not need only to be a "seek and destroy" exercise for a very small group who drop a ton of money regularly. There's far more to be gained from a broad-based strategy game that supports and compliments both F2P and P2P players. That's the mark of success of a game like this, most especially because the players have such a deep connection to the show. That's why I started playing this game in the first place. PLEASE VISIT THE BUGS AND FEEDBACK PAGE, AND COMMENT ON THE GAME IMPROVEMENT THREAD!
