Firefly has wasted our time and can shove this game.

Seriously lazy update today players have spent a year and a half doing this for a days work from firefly LAZY is not the word.
What did you expect the endgame to be?
Well they did a poll asking about it and the majority voted against it.
firefly need to start doing better updates or they will lose their players slowly seen it happen to even better games then this when they don't listen to what people want.

Its not my job to think of content its there's and just by copy and pasting crap from others servers and reverting changes made in other ages does not count as an updates its more of a downgrade with random useless *

69 for 111 against and 14 not sure was technically a majority, but in the bigger picture only 194 people responded to the survey. As time when on the percentages for those opposed declined. I also did some analysis and found that more of the votes against were cast by players that are not active on UK-1 or UK-4.

The forum interface is limited. If it were my company I would have indexed the votes cast against factors for 5th age activity and crowns purchased.

Players have been leaving the game regardless. I do not see the publication of 6th/Final age rules as increasing the attrition rate. I personally project that if Firefly had not announced an end game that more players would leave UK-1 and UK-4 due to boredom then the vocal few that claim to leave do to dissatisfaction with the changes.

The end game is still determined by the players and that poll was brigaded by factions who were strongly against the idea but otherwise never even visit the forums.

people like to complain , this is a fact
when someone does a job there are always 100 who say they can do it better

forme this final age is a great way to prevent that ,on an active server, players start war of monks, with millions of points faith
victory is independent from parishes that an house can own with interdiction and influence, but can only be achieved with captains
I think it's good, a shake to the game mechanics that so often have been criticized

true that a group can prevent the victory, but in the long run will remain always less towers .... risk is that a group of players come back to steal the final prizes
20 towers = 20 timed capture or villages close to towers and when all sleep capture and close the server :lol: :lol:


ps: if you like so much play on standard server and kill ia castle go play on wolf , at least u will gain cards xD

.
The poll wasn't exclusive to UK-1 or UK-4 as far as i'm aware of it

They did a poll ..the majority of people who voted in the poll were against ending worlds yet firefly has announced a final age !!

what i don't understand is people were always able to play multiple worlds ..if someone likes to play a new world they play it if not then they won't play it ..closing their main world won't suddenly make them want to play a new world if they don't want to ..i don't get it why someone wants a world closed if they are not playing on the world ? there are other people who play those worlds

and honestly if you are not actively playing one of those old worlds then i don't think you should worry/care about them being closed or not or keep bit**ching about only 100 or less people are active ..i don't see any problem with that as long as the world ( those 100 or less players ) make enough money for firefly to keep the server online and profit from it which actually firefly has said those old worlds still make enough money for them ...
Yoooooooooo

Yep. Everybody knows the mayhem that ensues when a new age starts (or the fiasco when a server is rolled backed *ahem*) as it gives an opportunity for players to get the jump on all the rest who have yet to come online.

So no doubt there will be players setting up specialist teams to take down these old worlds. And not for the reward of a card pack or two but for the deviant satisfaction of p*ssing off a player base who never signed up for this in the first place.

How do we know that this won't end up being the griefers' ultimate wet dream?...

Lol its a very easy solution. Just have somebody take night duty everyday to watch the map and ID the villages at 1 area of the map 24/7 to avoid the tower being captured.. Well something like that..

What if it does? I don't see how anyone could defend the current meta in old worlds with a straight face. What happened to the days when my little old farming self was told multiple times how SHK was a wargame? These same players have flipped to the opposite side of the coin and now want to defend the one house world domination. Heaven forbid the new rules actually break up these super houses and encourage players to actually fight to hold what they've held with minimal effort for the past two years.

Encouraging players to fight more is exactly what SHK should do and be about. The problem is Firefly failed to really encourage that in the last few ages so the playerbase in those worlds has gotten lazy and forgot what the game used to be like.

Also those who say there is no crossover between worlds, you are incorrect, multiple times I have seen big alliances of close knit player groups quit one world for another when that new one opens up. Sure they'll keep their villages oftentimes in the old world but they don't actively play it.

I like this. A LOT.
I would like it EVEN MORE if the winning house can just remain there, farm for the rest of eternity, oh wait....

but seriously, there should be like a "Golden Land" mode where people live in peace until they die of old age like you hear in the stories.

The server should remain up until the last survivor of that war takes his last breath, reminiscing the old days.

Only the land itself shall remember the heroes who once roamed here.
