This update while very small has some changes we have needed such as the UI changes for sending attacks/resource missions.
After analysis it may not be as major a problem. But certainly i still don't find it a great feature.
"Receive prizes for being in the top 100 at the end of an Event"
This i believe is now in relation to who completed the event the fastest and not the top 100 players. (The lack of patch notes makes it difficult) This is, okay but the problem is that if you get a gold reward for completing an event fastest then this would outweigh the cost of simply using gold to do this in the first place. Especially for attacking or for building/training events. I mean its okay but again i focus my attention on new players being able to interact with and join the kingdoms. I don't see this massively benefitting new players and will simply make the top 100 even stronger. Its not giving real incentives to grow other ways like npc barbarians and sending your troops on lengthy quests to help some npc village etc. There is many locked features and these are NEEDED. I want bigger kingdoms with features to help these people grow.
World Chat - A chat where all the kingdoms can interact with each other. You will have Alliance, Kingdom and World. It will at least give us more to talk to and limit the amount of times i have to view endless turkish discussions.This would be a nice feature i believe.
"Speed up marches"
NO NO NO. The whole point of these war games is that marches TAKE TIME. That means if i choose to attack an enemy and i am safely across the map or further away and i don't want to waste a port then it is a risk and this attack will take VALUABLE TIME. This will put me at risk of them shielding, increasing their defence or attacking me back and forcing me to recall if they are online.
Nope we have removed this factor completely if you throw a little gold at it. Did we even need this, no i don't think so.
- Kills are now displayed on the profile when you select a castle.
- Can select the amount of troops now to put on marches by clicking the box.
- Some visual improvements to the troop attack feature.
Those are my views.
