    Maybe this was one of main reasons for the change. People buying gold but not buying cash. Hmmm, seems plausible to me.

    I think that is probably a stretch. I know of literally no one who has spent real cash for in game cash... not saying it hasn't or won't happen, but that seems an unlikely motivation.

    What is most troubling to me about this whole scenario is two things:

    1.) Obviously with all of these confirmations of similar experiences pouring in from all of you, a change to the previous functionality was made. WHY WAS THERE NO COMMUNICATION?

    2.) Was this particular code rewrite really the most efficient way to spend developer resources given all of the other aspects of the game that are currently leaving much to desire?

    Many of us are waiting for a response to the OP. WHY can't this resonable, respectful and potentially helpful question be answered? WHY!?

    Because we haven't heard back from the dev team about it yet We'll have a reply up as soon as we can though.

    Makes overvaulting much more of a pain. Getting that first couple LE Building for new players just became that much more of a chore.

    Thanks CJ. It just seemed like a random functionality change with no real problem driving the need for a solution...

    I know it caught me off guard, and quite honestly it has taken much of the fun out of the game for me. I get quite a few of my jollies from raiding and making money... as mean as that may sound I can speak for my faction as well, from whom I've heard 100% negative feedback regarding this change.

    My concern is that it was somehow a patch addressing the needs of the 1%. Hoping the constraints ccn be loosened up some.

    Thanks again and I'll await your reply.

    (Happy Monday :P)

    Getting to the root of the problem---the DEVS are in charge? What?

    Well, it caught us off-guard too since we didn't release a change. We're still looking into it.

    I know what you mean, I had a couple players I used to find routinely to fund LE buildings and upgrades but now it's a lot harder to find the people on my spreadsheet. Hope this gets fixed.

    PS - want to share that your spreadsheet? haha

    This absolutely cracks me up. As has been said a hundred times here, if this happened in my workplace,...well, you know the rest...

    At least we also know you all don't communicate with each other. Not just us.

    No reason to be a jerk about it... On one hand you ask for transparency and when that request is fulfilled you feel like slinging mud anyways if the answers aren't to your liking.

    They are FAR from perfect, I think everyone recognizes that... but the effort goes a long way in the eyes of the majority.

    I personally appreciate the communication as it is far superior to the radio silence we became accustomed to.

    Haha that wouldn't be fair to the folks listed on it. They did nothing wrong and I'm sure they're tired of seeing me.

    And for now... they shall get their wish... I can't find good targets anymore anyways... just a bunch of abandoned bases.

    On the positive side... this wasn't an INTENDED change if I'm reading correctly. This means that whatever changed (and something DID change) can be reverted. Interested to hear what the Devs say.

    1. I didn't ask for transparency. You did. And I will comment on it as I see fit.

    2. If you think this impresses a majority, you need a new polling system.

    3. I am glad you appreciate it. How's the view with your head between your legs?

    4. In honesty, what I mean is that GREE nor the Devs nor CJ need any apologists here. He has a job to do and he does it as he and his bosses see fit. Likewise for the whole company. They don't need a defender. We may not like how they do it, and we are free to state such displeasure. Does that fix it? No. But I still hold hope that on the margins our displeasure has some impact...if tiny. I can assure you that hindquarters make out sessions have no such positive impact.

    I still see people +/- 10 levels, ally counts from 1 up to 350. So I don't know what you're talking about.

    They may have tweaked it again... apparently they are looking into it. I'll go retest.

    What is your level and ally count? Maybe that factors in.

    EDIT: Still seeing the same... +2/-3 levels and 240 to 499 allies all on same page haha.

    You're such an impressive person.
