  • Whatever you do, don't blow diamonds on a complete "instant build" of a structure. Start the build with gold and goods, and then use diamonds to finish any time remaining, when you get impatient enough to do so. Buying the whole upgrade wi…
  • (Quote) So please tell us the factors, which is what I think Trever was asking for. Specifically. As in, a complete list. With formulas. We won't be scared by the math.
  • So leave. Seriously. They certainly keep track of general login numbers in addition to diamond sales, so send a message they will notice: stop logging in. I'm not dismissing the complaints, because I agree with most of them, and I'm not saying I'm a…
  • Excellent idea. This should be a new permanent booster option, in the same price range as the extra draw and hand size boosters. I'd pay for it, say 500 diamonds or less. edit: I just NOW, 20 seconds after writing the above, and less than a day aft…
  • (Quote) But was it fun? I'm not finding it so at level 30, and it sounds a lot like it's just a different sort of not-that-much-fun at the high levels where the challenge becomes trivial.
  • (Quote) Great post. Here is an attempt at a constructive critique of Bigfoot. Your mileage may vary. From a player's point of view, when considering whether and how to use a new card, the question is not whether it is useful in and of itself. The q…
  • CPW doesn't need to catch wind of anything, and I'd be surprised if they're even paying much attention to this talk. They'll be watching their total participation and income numbers of the whole playerbase, which is probably orders of magnitude larg…
  • When I'm attacking another player and I clear a camp adjacent to the refinery, I'll often drop Bigfoot there, so he can start smashing the refinery, and he doesn't have to actually walk anywhere. For every other battlefield position or type of even…
  • (Quote) Simple might describe your view of how the world works, I'll grant you that. Accepting the changes or leaving the game are not the only two options. There's also discussing it and waiting to see if the developers might act on any of the disc…
  • As much as we'd like Mongo, we must be resigned to the fact that we are only pawns in the game of life.
  • Ah, so the flag is still used up, but just doesn't sit there pulsing for as long. A fair point, which would preclude the exploit I was picturing.
  • The "take back my flag" option would have to be available for only a very short time for any given flag, and you should only be allowed to cancel a flag once or twice during a given battle. Otherwise players would abuse it by dropping a fl…
  • (Quote) I think you're just making wild guesses now, as I know high level players who regularly continue to buy diamonds to buy gold packs, complete healings more quickly, and so on. Whatever the case, my point was that hitting them with decreased p…
  • Nothing wrong with this idea, but boycotting the diamond store would probably send an even stronger message, especially if it was a large number of high-achieving players who are regularly putting down a lot more cash than the average player.
  • (Quote) The latest feed (as of this writing) on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/compasspointwest
  • (Quote) That's cool that you're enjoying it, but if you're suggesting that people don't like it just because of the normal human tendency to dislike change in general, I'll have to disagree. I'm seeing some very specific reasons being given here tha…
  • So it seems like high level players with lots of wranglers, mercenaries, and battle points are able to send a big cavalry group straight to the objective(s), making the event trivial and boring. Low level players without those assets have to slog th…
  • They've given some canned, noncommittal responses to complaints posted on their Facebook page, so someone is aware, but that's likely a community manager who hasn't been given any official answers to dole out. Why they can't at least do that on the …
  • Boy, how hard could it be for them to just respond with some totally non-committal acknowledgement of all this nearly unanimous feedback? Even something like, "We have no changes to announce at this time but we are reading your feedback with i…
  • (Quote) Hello yourself, criticizing partner (touche), We all knew ALL the doctor cards were overvalued? At my level, I only have access to regular, rugged, and (the never yet seen) veteran doctors, and I did not know any such thing. I don't see any…
  • (Quote) Thank you for your comment. In the first case, the flag was far away from the distractions, not close. I dropped it deep in enemy territory where most of my troops already were. The new troops, dropped at the starting launch zone, headed for…
  • Looking forward to trying out the Gold Rush event; new options and game modes to choose from are almost always a good thing. No opinion on Miner & Sasquatch until I try them out, obviously. Glad to see the bug fixes. A 1 minute Doctor card is u…
  • (Quote) With respect, you are again completely missing the problem. This isn't about the card rewards, which we've established anyone can get no matter how many others also get them. The card rewards aren't the only thing people play for, at the end…
  • (Quote) You are correct about the card rewards. No one's success in acquiring those keeps anyone else from also getting them. The issue is the ability to rise to the top in the posse leaderboard. Not everyone cares about that, but some players do, …
  • I think the people here defending the feeder posses, despite having good intentions and wanting to build communities, are still ignoring the original objection: that the existence of huge meta-posses creates an almost insurmountable barrier to entry…
  • This is still an issue, and my screen STAYS black even after quitting the app, leaving it off long enough for the logon timer to reset, and then relaunching it. I can't play. If I delete and reinstall the app, will it retain my town, resources, pr…
  • Agreed, really really annoying. I'd rather not have it cluttering up my screen at all, but if it has to be there please don't make it lag out the whole screen, much less doing so over and over again because it reappears even after I've tapped on it …
  • (Quote) I played that game, and seem to remember that the fort battles were done as challenges that were made, accepted, and scheduled in some way. A bunch of defenders would show up and fill the fort, while the attackers showed up outside, and the …
