Anyone run into big gold spenders yet? I for one am enjoying the fact that most people are not going gold crazy. So far, you can do really well with just skill.

Was going to be, but decided just to focus on Modern War. Although I do have a few gold money buildings and units.

Was 195-5 & on a streak of 125 in a row - UNTIL I ran into Hello Kitty... she didn't get much, but her stats (@ lvl 9) were 2x better than mine (over 1,000 both a/d) - and with only 4 allies (mine being a non-Gold army & 15 allies) and was able to get through my defense (poured all my upgrades into my defense stats since I joined)... Took a look and, sure enough, nearly a pure gold army (not including level based loot).

Just glad she didn't hit me more than once!

That's exactly how I do it. I'm kind of crazy when it comes to the gold but if you don't have a lot of gold, I'm not going to hit you again. It's just not fair and eventually makes the game no fun for both of us - frustration for you, no challange for me. I basically go through the list trying to make the missions or get valor so I don't look before I attack but I'm not going to hit you again if you're 4000 points below me lol.

Also kids don't forget - a non-gold player that takes his/her time and builds lots of valor units up will still be able to take on the big spenders or at least defend against them. I spent mad gold in Modern War and still get beaten by non-gold with tons of valor.

Just lost 3 fights against 'test' (L9) who spent approximately $400 on 6 Death Dragons (@the time... He's added 2 more since). Now my record is 252-9... Good to know I'm strong enough (@ LVL 8) to beat all non-Gold players... Now I gotta beef up my army to take on the big boys...

Bud you cannot keep 100% of them out! These guys will pass you by eventually.

True.. BUT doesn't mean I can't at least try! Either way, if somebody spends $400 to beat me, more power to them...

116-1, $760/HR, 16 allies, 2500/1800... So easily 4x my attack & 3x my defense (not including my base defense from leveling up). So I know it's tough, but looking to get to the 100-200x level you mention in your other string.

Should be easy for you bud with your great economy. Just put on a few more allies and units.

Nahh... He's gonna pass me by... I'd rather stick around lvl 8 than bulk up to beat one guy (who has no problem dropping $500 on the game)... I got a long range plan - and I'm sticking to it, baby!

They seemed to have banned all the hackers I've seen so far fairly quickly. There's one person at 50 with a lot of level 10 buildings, level 4 manors, level 7 gold mines, etc, etc. if they are legit they have spent Thousands if not tens of thousands on cash and gems to rush build. There hourly is around 15k now.

Lol, sorry Xclusiv. I meant gems. Guess you can see what game I usually play.

Raised from 15k to 22k in a day. Not sure why they haven't been banned yet actually...

You guys have got to check out "test". She's awesome - saw her yesterday withs stats around 4000-4500 level 24. Now today she is level 29 and 8k stats. Oooh yeah...hurricane coming your way gus in 30s :)

She had 120,000 gold yesterday and I was staring at it for 5 whole minutes fighting my inner urge to attack her. Fortunately I did not :)

Pretty sure the one I am referring to us now banned. They are doing a great job of policing KA.

And btw its not gems that boosts stats big time, it's coins. Believe me I gave bought both and there is no comparison.

I don't know... having a couple of those death dragons is going to out stats whatever non-gem army you can get. The only way to "beat" them is having a significantly larger alliance size to lessen the differences. In which case, you're probably the one at lost not being able to fight easier rivals at your level =l

At level 50 that gets you what, a few hundred on your stats page? 300k coins for 150 bucks gets you thousands.

This dude has 200 of 2 different types of Gem units, it was kind of suspicious so I am going to let the devs handle it cause I may be wrong.

Xira, an advantage with gems is that it can't be raided - did you have any problems with depositing huge amounts of coin and risk being raided while you are spending it ... I mean 250-500k of coin is going to attract attention..

Xira

You only buy it when your ready to spend it, and you spend it all. Not much risk.

I raided someone yesterday and got 4k total from 3 attacks. I was probably level 18 :)

That would be a considerable spend out of pocket.

I really don't get the point of spending a 100 bucks (or even 10) on the game... its not like you win anything by being the best or being the first to level 50 or 30k attack or whatever.

...but I've been looking to reward the KA development team for an excellent balanced product, however small my budget may be. While I don't want to fuel my addiction anymore, a small amount of spend for some strategic purchases that could save me time, increase my enjoyment and reward the developers is a fair trade.

Yeah, I like the big gold/gem spenders because they fund the game.
I spend a little but not much more than I would for a deck game.

IMHO, as far as the lower level, big gem spenders go, the items they buy are not gonna help them out much later, unless they keep up the big time gem buying/spending. Time will tell.

Just met a 126 Allie lvl44 huge spender, around 8000 attack and defense.
Attacked me, I lost 10000 while he lost 15000....



Roughly calculated, 9500 gem value. With 2400 spent on building defense tower,lol.
Me carrying 5x my vault cash is now in deep deep trouble. :(

Hi guys, great post!

I purchased 300 gem and now 360 win and o loss.

The honor point strategy is not that workable in kingdom age.

Xira

Here is the biggest spender I have seen or another hacker, should know soon

Player V...
Level 45
Attack/defense around 32k

I was bored and did the math


Units
2200x308 trebuchet = 677,000
1100x625 siege tower =687,500
750x121 zep = 90,750
1600x765 orthocopters = 1,224,000
2,679,250
-----------
Equipment
85 witch doctor wands x 14000 = 1,190,000
35 time control x 12000 = 420,000
17 mail crushers x 18000 = 306,000
128 hawks layer leather x 17000 = 2,176,000
74 outrider leather x 11000 = 814,000
4,888,000

Total coins: 7,567,250
Lvl 45 vault purchase gets you 300k?*
Would have spent $2,500

Believe me, there are people in CC that have spent over $10,000 legitimately. No joke. Hackers get found out VERY quickly and Funzio is really vigilant when it comes to this. If you see someone for more than 2 days that has outrageous stats they are legit.

I have a lot of gold and just got my @55 handed to me by a non-gold buyer. 12,000 attack.

Finally (and unfortunately) I encountered someone who has at least 8000+ worth of Gold units. Interesting part is that he/she has 110 (yes, 110) x Amazons, 10 x Snake Warriors, 10 x Dark Mage, few Fire Elementals and Death & Frost Dragon. Seems legit and nice, if a bit odd to invest so heavily on those Amazons. :)

Freekizh

Why whats wrong with Amazons? They're the cheapest in terms of gem per Attack point, besides the mystic.

Nothing wrong, just odd to have so much Gold units of same type. :) But itīs just a question of quantity vs. quality, and everybody has own opinions on that matter. :)

Just got hit by the strongest gem player so far. Level 31 - 9.7kA/9.7kD. About 100 gem units. This is what you get for being complacent and doing a bit of camping.

Stats were a little better than mine and only took 1000 gold. I think he was being nice :)

@sepi lotta gem players do this. I believe the more gem units the better so you can carry more weapons and armor if you are gem player.

Ive seen someone with 2 different 200 gem units, and recently got hit with someone 20Katt/20Kdef.

I had expected 20k+ at level 50 - I think Xira mentioned strongest was 30k+.

I hadn't expected GEM players to hit 10k this early - more like level 35+. Looks like though that gem players from level 30 are upping their game.

I am yet to spend any money on this game, but wondering what people thought were the best things to buy with gems in KA?
I can't afford many gems, so I'm thinking that I wait for crates or whatever the KA version will be. Is this a good idea, or is it worth buying some gem money buildings?

Just got attacked last night from an up & coming Gemmer - Ivanguard (LVL 15)

He's not focusing on his $/HR at all ($106), but has;

Battlemaster (96/77) x 3
Risen Warrior (27/33) x 12
Raider (33/21) x 20
Barbarian (100/66) x 3
Tomb Lord (65/48) x 1
Great Warrior (154/143) x 1
Doom's Magistrate (290/166) x 1
Battle Reaper (33/26) x 4
Blood Spider (33/25) x 1
Swamp Guardian (40/52) x 1

All told, 4,500+ gems (~$300) so far...

He hit me 3x and lost 2 of them, so he went and raided my non $ generating buildings and I ended up losing 7 Ballistas (which were covered by the $ I won from him)...

He's added more gem items since the hit last night and I expect that he'll continue to do so...

PorkChopExpress

Thanks! Thought Id get there alot faster than I did... Had to level up a couple times to get access to more $$ buildings... and I did just that, added more defense machines to bolster my #s... Didn't want him to come back for me... Seems as if he's content with leveling quickly than hitting me again... Either way it was a good wakeup call and keeps me focused on my original goal... to survive & beat gem kingdoms...
