Looks like the war will be 4 days long this time! 5/24 - 5/28. Awesome..... (not really)

Yup! I can't tell if its coincidence or if GREE just really likes planning wars on holidays. Maybe they just want to pit themselves against our family/friends and see who we love more.

Then again, if you are short on time, you can always make it up with gems...

I kinda like them on holidays, as I typically have more time to play during them. Maybe it's just me. I mean, what, ten minutes every three hours for the vast majority of players. For the top gem spenders, it sucks; but how much attention does it take to tap "attack again" and then "health refill". :)

No that sucks bc some of us have plans on holidays or like to spend time with families. And usually some players become unavailabe. Second more than 3 days of constant war is too much.

I really don't know what's worse... The two week rush or scheduling it for Memorial Day weekend. Crack dealers are more considerate of their clientele than Gree.

I played all though my Mother's Day dinner. I did not celebrate Easter, but I will probably get kicked out of my guild for not playing over Memorial Day weekend. I don't spend any money on the game, so they don't want me here anyway.

Not one war has been scheduled across anyone of the games that hasn't had at least one post complaining about the date.

As someone rightly pointed out in the last one, it doesn’t matter what date they chose it will be inconvenient for some people or groups of people. Just accept it and prioritize what is more important to you and play accordingly.

I would almost guess if you went through every country where players of these games come from and mapped their public holidays on a calendar there wouldn’t be too many if any gaps, so accept it and move on.

I actually think people start these posts just for something to complain about since these wars take 2-3 hours tops of your weekend, so highly doubt because one of those days is a public holiday you can’t still find 2 hours over the 4 days to participate if it is that important to you.

Takes more than 2-3 hours out of your weekend. Well I guess it's how your guild operates. If it's time based and you have a role you need to be on at the beginning of every war. It's a schedule that you need to manage. Also being on chat helping your guild mates takes time as well. Also I agree with all the countries every weekend has something on it. But they did target memorial day weekend. Can't deny that because if they didn't... they would have kept the format the same and made it 3 days instead of 4.

At this rate, I guess we should clear the calendar for Memorial WEEKEND (not just the "day", mind you), 4th of July, Labor Day WEEKEND, the four days over Thanksgiving holiday, Christmas, and New Years... And just "accept it and move on"?

I guess GreeD thinks all their players live in their mom/dads basement and have no life outside of their games. Rushing a war to schedule over YET ANOTHER major holiday weekend is asinine to say the least. The idiots at GreeD who thought this was a good idea really need to be fired. They clearly have no regard for their customers.

I agree with this.

This game is targetted at income earners. Most of them work weekdays so it makes sense for the events to be scheduled on weekends.

Heavy spenders only need to find a good target and unload relentlessly to score big points. It takes a few hours at most to accumulate some big scores and does not take the whole weekend or even close to it.

Free players and light spenders however need to play intensively for the whole duration of the war to score some decent points because they rely on regeneration of battle health to get a significant amount of hits in. So free players and light spenders would be the only ones complaining about the wars coinciding with special dates and using up all of their precious holiday time.

And since this game isn't aimed at free or small-time players, Gree couldn't care more about wars conflicting with holidays.

That is bad business. All of the small-time players will quit, and you end up with only two big kids left in the play ground. Not much fun for them anymore (only raiding each other back and forth will get old), so they quit. End game.

Make the small-time players happy, they play and stay. Gives the big kids in the playground someone to push around, and they are happy. Everyone wins.

As true as this may be have we ever seen a deccision from Gree that shows they care about this?

Also putting events on days when people can't play is good for business especially in a team based event ie a light spender is busy for day so scores much less points, not wanting to let his team down how does he catch up?

I agree with you as well...
If you are gems spenders its easy for you to make 300K pts for your guild.
just find a target , got 300 pts every single hit & hit 1000x I think you need 1 - 2 hours only.
coz I saw one of guild can reach 10millions pts on first day
If I am not wrong its only transfer $1600 fr your pocket to GREE pocket.
So I think this game not for free gamer like me as well anymore...

Listen, it could be good to play during Christmas! GREE would give us huge rewards as gifts! Wonderful! Lol

Honestly, having a war every two weeks is way too fast to sustain a decent group of players. If you consider that some people play to their sister games (I also play MW), this will be war almost every week! This is insane, financially! I am not a spender in these games. I play for free. However, GREE need to have people spending big money to continue to support these games. Many players wont be able to spend big time on a few games every week! Moreover, I personally do not want to speng every weekend of the year playing! It look like GREE feel that the end is close and they want to milk the cow dry before the cow die! I hope I am wrong but it look like this is it.

My prediction is one of the Big 3 games is gonna be effectively dead by the end of this year. My bet is CC (facebook vs already gone).

As far as "income earners" go, these games are just one potential use of disposable income. Piss people off and they go elsewhere. Get a bad rap and new people dont start.

The way things are going, I cant wait to see some of you literally playing with yourself. Who would you show your epeen to?

+1

If Gree schedules the wars on workdays/schooldays then free and light spenders will complain that they don't have enough free time to score decent points. Either way they are going to complain. But it makes most sense to schedule these events on holidays or weekends as it gives free/light players the best opportunity to score a significant amount of points.

But having event every two week with 3 other sister games.... I do not know. I doubt that will run for long. People will get bored to play too often and most of the players wont be able to spend as much. They are milking the cow way too fast. Cow will die soon!

Well this is 2 battles on holidays back to back. And MW and CC both this weekend so we have decided to go gem free over Memorial Day and get a few units and have a fun stress free weekend. The only way Gree is going to listen to anyone is to hit them where it hurts in their wallets so I have told my group to have fun do hits whenever and we are wall free gem free this go round. Our families mean more than a rank in the game.

Now that's not true. Gree is very considerate. Imagine if the war was scheduled on a normal day. Players would complain it conflicts with their daily lives and therefore would not even have the OPPORTUNITY to play.

When the war is scheduled on a holiday, players would at least be given the choice whether to participate or not. Most importantly, they are given the OPPORTUNITY to participate. If that's not considerate then I don't know what would be.

lol if you go free, you only end up consuming more time as a result. Money substitutes for time in this game.

If you spend money, you can enjoy this game AND still have time for your holiday.

Actually we just end up ranking lower. Gree won't change anything if people continue to march the march so if anyone wants to have any say about the game you have to make a stand sometime. Also if you out on a boat even with a satellite the reception is spotty so gems or not it still lowers points so we do a bit this time and start hitting it again next time. My family is more important. Not going to say hey kids sorry I know you want to go stay on the boat for a four day trip but mom and dad have a game to play so maybe next year. I think not

In your circumstance, the best example that can be made is to not participate at all and spend all of that time with your wonderful family.

GREE put it on public holidays like next weekend to give their planted hacked guilds a chance to win... They hope we all will complain and not play much.

That's why GREE ignore tickets regarding 60 members guilds from the beginning. They need to push gem players to spend more to beat them.

Gree has shills and automated players in all of its game. Not just the four Funzio games but also in their various digital card games.

It may be worthwhile to seriously consider an on-line petition to run a gem free war.

1. Guild wars are too frequent
2. Guild war dates remain a mystery making it difficult to plan
3. Guild war dates are impacting on social life (Easter, Mother's Day)
4. Guild wars are becoming longer - 2 days would be better
5. Guld wars are becoming gem wars.

If it carries on like this we will see more people leaving the game. I have already stopped both Modern War and Monster Quest.

How about a gem free war? The alternative is to just skip it altogether.

There seems to be a lot of questions why Gree is packing in the events with not enough time between them. The answers lie within Gree's 3rd quarter financial report which was released 2 days ago.

http://v3.eir-parts.net/EIR/View.aspx?template=ir_material&sid=21633&code=3632

For the record, I think Gree does run the risk of causing 'Kingdom Age Fatigue'. Personally I'm not very excited about the next war, maybe a couple more weeks wait and I could be. But the financial results don't lie and Gree has some catching up to do. Foreign studios are outperforming domestic (Japan) studios. All you people who threatened to leave or boycott gems spending etc - you did not put your money where your mouth is.

Thanks. But it's crystal clear that the only reason that GREE would release more and more events and wars is down to money.

speaking of which, I guess the next LTQ is due today otherwise they won't have enough time to release them all.

We all have choices. We can choose to participate at kingdom age war, or not. For all we know, everyday is some important day in a city/country. Be it national holiday, religious celebration, or just some mayor election in a small town. The internet is not limited to a country.
If the day is very important to you individually, don't participate at the war, period.
I don't celebrate memorial day, so no problem for me.

The same reason goes to any LTQ thrown by GREE. If you can't do it because you don't have time, then don't participate. The choice is yours.
