Like many of you, I love playing SG E&P…I have been playing for about 5 months now. I started right before the Halloween event…can’t remember what it was called. I remember not understanding what it was about or having any mined items to do anything. So I did what most people probably would have done in my shoes…bought gems and summoned blindly. All of those summoned heroes are now gone from my heroes list. Some intentionally…others accidentally. When I started playing, I completed the tutorial and remember it telling me what some things were…other things I do not remember so well. Anyway, In my short playing time I have even been in a couple alliances. I believe I have found a good one…shout out MHI Texas. We have a good time working through events together and helping each other out. Taking advice here and there…commiserating about weak pulls during events…etc…a bunch of good people. Back to the reason for my post. I have reached a point where the time to do anything is basically…forever. 8 days here…2 days there…etc. I kept thinking of ways I should have played differently. Perhaps I didn’t build up my base well. Or I used too many gems for foolish things…stuff like that. So I decided to start a new account on my iPad, independent of my current, level 31 account.
I downloaded the game Sunday morning, 7 February, and set for myself three overarching rules…no money (except possibly VIP for a second builder later on), save all gems (for now), and build evenly (all buildings get leveled up as much as possible before I level up the stronghold again). I then added a fourth rule…do not use any summons received as a reward until I have at least 10.
I worked methodically through the tutorial. I paid attention to what it was telling me and since I now had a good grasp of the game it made way more sense (I did not realize monsters have countdown clocks before attacks). Like all of you…including my original account…at the end of the tutorial I completed province 1 and had received Bane, Layla and Sharan. I did not remember that the tutorial ascends Sharan for me. I built all the buildings I could at level 1 of the stronghold and then I leveled up my stronghold to level 2. I feel that right now, in my level 31 account, that I have to go back and level up different buildings so I can then take advantage of what the game is offering…and it takes forever. Right now with the new account most things are well under an hour or two, even the stronghold.
At the end of day one I was at level 3. I was able to upgrade my stronghold to level 3 and most structures also to level three. I used mystic vision twice and even completed a monster quest. Didn’t get much of anything of note in any of those. I had 3 summon tokens and 203 gems. I did not have any troops yet. I did not play any levels in province 2 yet…I just replayed province 1 stage 4 (P1S4) a bunch of times. Also…I made a conscious choice to NOT rebuild the watch tower yet. I do not want to open myself up to raid attacks.
My main hero team at the end of the day was Bane, Layla, Sharan, Brand, and Derric.
I will post again after day two.
