GREE doesn't care. It wants money. If the top guilds fight, GREE will keep putting in wars. Only way to alter things is to stop buying the sparkly things.

From what I saw this past 24-hr war, more people will skip next weekend's war, even if that means quitting. The rewards were weak, the indy rewards were lame boxes with useless items/units, and guild quest rewards about the same (aka, sucky). Add in that many people in US made plans for holiday weekend long before GREE decided to F... Up the schedule, and you end up with an excellent recipe for encouraging people to stop playing.

Please cancel next weekend's war and return to predictable three-week wars so players and guilds can plan instead of constantly reacting to unpleasant surprises.

Surely this has to be some kind of joke!?! In what world does it make sense to burn out your players with weekend after weekend of war? If you in anyway respect the players please reconsider.

IPassButter, we need to know if this is the new plan for KA. If we have a war every weekend, this will be the end of Kingdom Age.

People are very upset and talking about quitting. This is a very bad idea.

Let's review:

First we have a very intense 3 day war. Many of the top guilds spent a lot of money.

Next we have a 24 hour war 4 days after the long war. My guild was so burned out that we played pretty much gem free. Still finished 10th. But it was also a lot of time required.

Then EB starts immediately after the war. Lost in the shock of the next war in 6 days is the fact that you increases the EB health again. The wrapper for the current ILTQ is for an EB power attack. If you think that we will just gem away to kill hundreds of EBs, think again.

Now we have another 24 hour war on Memorial Day weekend in the USA.

All this is overwhelming and many are cutting back, and some have questioned the wisdom of playing a game that is more time consuming than a full time job.

Please come to your senses and give your customers a break before we all vote with our feet and go elsewhere for our entertainment.

This is their method of telling you to stop spending your money. We struggled to make 25th place out of sheer lack of enthusiasm. I can't imagine any more excitement next weekend.

This game is doomed?

A real shame. I've been playing this game for maybe 5 years. Got some really great friends because of it....but Gree are ABSOLUTELY milking what's left of the faithful. Shame on them.

It's 100% clear to see.

PassButter, Gree, whoever....please just be honest with us. Weekly wars have a huge feeling of desperation about them, and quite frankly, it's rude. I took the Dragon Realms (or whatever it was called) big turn off on the chin. Especially as it was sudden with no warning just after war weekend. And you took cash off people 24 hours before that too.

If I don't get a response, I'll assume KA is being killed off too.

Gree development team i know that you have a job to do to squeeze money from your costumers and i belive that someone is giving you orders to do that but you all should know that you are making this game 24/7 job to us.People will just delete it from their phone and you won't have costumers/players that will remain in this game to play it.Every war more and more people are retiering their games and if you push this further you wont have players playing this game.
Raid boss you made impossible to finish for guilds with less then 60 members in guild that pushed some of players (your costumers )from the game,they quited and deleted the game and now you are pushing events as 24 hour wars every weekend,good luck with that,but don't be surprised Gree when you see that you pushed all of your players from the game.It is easy to delete this game belive me,if you keep up with this pace i will delete it and i belive and others will do that

GREE, rather than issue infraction pms to users of this forum, who offer honesty; your PAYING customers, why don't you address the questions put before you? You change the format and seemingly remove events, which in the past have been enjoyable, but are now complicated and require 60 strong guilds and now, you command that wars are weekly, but don't inform us of whether wars will remain weekly, or will revert to the longer format again.

This is at best, just plain rude. At worst, GREE is unprofessional. I work within the legal profession. If I behaved as GREE is doing now, by not giving answers, when the requests for answers have been polite, I'd be struck off.

Three or four years ago, this was a lively, debating and bristling forum. GREE even managed to kill that off too. I too, remember Dragon Realms-LaW, whatever it was called. Nothing could be finished and right after war, GREE closed the game down. Please GREE, provide answers, instead of paying lip service to us all and realise that even though peeps seem, for now, to spend and play, the bubble WILL burst, if you aren't preparing to wrap the game up first. Plenty already retiring and your bigger guild spenders, still need opponents, with whom they can battle.

Your PAYING and free members deserve better; far better customer service. GREE's selective blindness in this forum is free for all to see. More than the constant wars are!

They see, they just don't have an answer on how to conduct professional courteous customer service. They are the slum lord of gaming! Fix nothing but continue to take the rent or provide warnings of eviction.

War has been the core of KA ever since guilds were established. We have become used to the 3 week cycle, and everyone has voiced many times that anything less than 3 weeks is not wanted. We need a bit of down time to relax and build up excitement for the next war. 1 week or even 2 weeks is too short, war will become like any other event, players will lose interest in war and in KA.

I think a 24 hour war every other week would be good. As long as there's no more long wars.

Can you please comment IPassButter?

There are no plans at this time to schedule war every weekend permanently.

My guess is : gree is gearing up something big that they didn't want to start or run through Memorial Day. So instead of running the usually 18 day cycle , they ran two weekly cycles with a 24 hour war at the end. The next question is what event will there be this Saturday on a holiday weekend after the 24 hour war ends .

I read this as weekly one day wars are here for a few more weeks yet, can we get an answer IPB on these going to be 30 min wars or not?

Intense 3 day war followed by an intense 24 hour war the following weekend only to find a that another 24 hour war is scheduled the very next weekend. Memorial Day weekend in the U.S. And Mother's Day in France. I'm in a top 10 guild and we are taking a pass on this one. Too much. Our folks are going to take the weekend off and enjoy it with our families. We will not declare.

IPassButter don't know why your schedule is such a secret but congrats you have finally figured out a way to get us all to scale back. Guilds have always defined themselves by placement during war. When they stop caring about it you've officially lost your audience.

Then what is the schedule on this temporary weekly war? Then No more after Memorial Day, one more, two more, etc. be forthcoming with your CUSTOMERS would be a welcomed change. You have people quitting, spending less, most importantly ruining the game.

This is exactly what will happen. We have requirements for war in our guild - we stopped that for the 24h battles. We are going to have relaxed battles with low to non gem usage - placement doesn't matter

Please let us know how long we have this weekly battles (or better: stop them as soon as possible)

There appears to be general consensus on our player chats with all guilds that a 24 hour war every two weeks would be ideal.

I'm not in favor of a 24 hr war every 2 weeks (the only people I have seen in favor of this are in top 10 guilds), especially if it's going to continue to be on Friday nights/Saturday mornings. If it were moved to Sunday/Monday, I might be ok with the idea but tbh war every 2 weeks would be obnoxious and you will see an increase in retirements. Personally most people I have talked to would favor a 3 day war once a month and to space out events but realistically that is unlikely to happen

24 hour war every 2 weeks is NOT preferred. Normal 3 day war once a month would be preferred.

If you must do a 24 hour war, would you consider starting it on Saturday rather than Friday? Friday night is usually set aside for most for either date night, family night or just relaxation time. Saturday Morning is chore time, or baseball, softball golf for kids.

Like you do in Modern war, please post the event schedule with dates. If you can do it there, you should be able to do that in Kingdom Age.

I think its safe to say that everyone prefers less war days. Either proposal would be a relief from a 3-day war every 3 weeks or a 1 day war every week.

Metsrock9931
05-24-2016, 06:27 PM
So basically the idea that will be a take away will be 3 day wars once a month and 24 hour war in the other weeks. Gree just continue to burn us out! Why change now! We have asked for date schedules, but you don't do it. Organization and communication would be nice.

On other thought just have a 24 hour war on three weeks and a 3 day war on the 4th week. It will help me quit this game a lot quicker just like modern war when you created battles every weekend. Thanks for listening.

Nope. I disagree, as do many other guilds. Wars are the fun part of this. However, I'm sure the TOP guilds don't like to spend more money to keep their position, but many of the lower guilds actually like wars.

Which probably means this is the solution that will be made and many more will drop the game. I mean, tap, tap tap for LTQ's are the tits!!!!

Laura TCK
05-25-2016, 12:56 PM
For a 1 day war start it Saturday please or back to 3 day wars every 4 weeks and yes you don't have to endlessly hit us with LTQ after boring LTQ and box events you know you can give people a couple of days off they won't leave, yes shedule dates but guessing everything falls on deaf ears

05-25-2016, 03:10 PM
What guild are you in War Player? While there may be disagreement between 1-day versus 3-day, you are the first player I have encountered that does not want to reduce the the current average of 1 war day per week (3 day war every three weeks or 1 day each week) . Folks seen to prefer either 1 day every two weeks or 3-dy every 4 weeks.

It's not so much about the money as the incredible amount of time and work it takes to choreograph.

05-25-2016, 03:58 PM
1 day eaxh 2 weeks or 3 days each 4 weeks would be great.
We want to have fun, but we have RL too.

Same with all other events, we dont want, need ongoing box or ILTQ.

By the way the actual switch from hitting 30 mobs for 1 level to 2 hits for 3 mobs is a great improvement.
Advaned playes have more time and do haste, weaker players can finish normal.
