Pretty * sad

Post by Kaledren » Wed Aug 21, 2013 9:34 pm

Yep...this game is very Pay 2 Win. SO MANY here that appear to spend hundreds, if not more on cards. The bigger wallet wins and makes it pointless for the common player. :(

Just had to speak my peace.

1 VS 1 carders hold a great advantage so what's a lowly free to play player to do? Look into joining a local faction, there is strength in numbers and often there are several carders in a fighting faction which help level the playing field.

There are many ways to play without carding, the only thing I use for carding daily is speed cards.

On the daily cards you can get enough for a 3x card every 3 or 4 days and then you time up all the vassals you have and a captain on a 3x card and boom,you destroy anyone in the game regardless if theyre carding or not :)

You can buy cards but you cannot buy skill that is only learned in game and over time. Some players never learn it. They think cards can replace skill. Cards will only do so much but they too take skill, you need to know when to play them to maximize the benefits. Play a card at the wrong time and you've wasted it.

I've played this game since Alpha 4 and I've seen people who play it who've never bought a card, reset a card player with skill and numbers.

Friends in game count for so much more and I would take friends/allies over cards any day.

Yep , a carder maybe can raze a few INACTIVE villages but yeah, the SKILLS is the most important , i've seen a lot of fighters that can RAZE a lot of vills and FLIP a county without any single card . A faction can be agood option since you're grouped and you can plan timed attacks very well :) with the other members .
BTW : The key is if you're active, then you're safe . A player attacked one of my town more than 10 attacks with cards but still failed coz i've always on and repair the castle + good castle building skill :P .

Yup totally pay to win. You can join a faction of course. But then it's not the same. Carders are in fact invincible. Yes you can time an attack with your faction and take any village. But they will card another village in a matter of days whereas your faction probably spend over 100 cats to destroy that village (remember, stone structures card). It's a war of attrition where they have unlimited resources to rebuild, defend. Eventually you will run out of cats.

Most people are smart and they don't attack a carder who is either online or has carded their castles for defense. This is true even if you are in a faction. They cannot concentrate on one carder and waste all resources on that person, so it forces them to attack offline.

There is skill, but carding does replace skill. However there is also some skills that non carders will never get to learn (eg.how to use cards effectively as they don't get enough if they don't pay). I don't see skill as important as cards or enough online time. So it's either money or online time that makes you successful.

I know that money pays for the games (I have no problems about that), but just gets me angry that so many people deny that it is pay to win.
It is a great game, just don't lie about this obvious fact. I still enjoy even with the heavy carders.

It is only logical that it is pay to win, otherwise why would people put money into it. There's no special graphics or additions to the game that people can buy, so that only makes your success in the game for sale. You cannot deny this fact.

Again have no problem with this model, just be upfront about it.

Why not fight those carders while they are online make them SPEND money while you don't group together and make them waste their paychecks so what if they get a new village carded a few days later capture it and then use it against that player too he will have done all the work for you. Not just that he will have spent money for you!!!

If it were me wasting my money that way to have my work and money end up helping someone else I wouldn't be carding for long.
