Ok… it is not my intention for this to be yet another b**** and moan thread. This is a sincere plea. A dedicated player reaching out to the powers-that-be.
Please give me something to do.
I am currently at level 24, with a stronghold level of 15. I’ve got about 40 different Heroes that I’m currently working on. I am more than a little monetarily invested in this game. I wake up in the morning, have my coffee, and spend about 20 minutes burning through my energy. Then I have pretty much no reason to touch this game for at least 4 to 5 hours. That sucks.
Now from a marketing standpoint, I understand the business model for games like this, and why they grind out the way they do, but I find it hard to believe that we couldn’t be given something to do during our down time without affecting the bottom line. My number one suggestion… maybe a practice arena where you can battle other members of your alliance and test out your defense teams. That would be amazing. Good training for wars and events, and it would definitely add something to the social and team building aspects of this game. Just a thought.
I love this game, but it reminds me sometimes of when I was quitting smoking. When I started smoking a long time ago, I did it because I liked it, but as time went on that changed. I wasn’t smoking because I liked it, I was simply smoking because I was addicted and it was part of my daily routine. There wasn’t nearly as much pleasure in it anymore. That’s the way I’m starting to feel about Empires and Puzzles, and how is that good for the bottom line?
