You’ve seen me around a bit now I’m sure but I’ve been mulling this for a few days.
My alliance, whom I joined about a year ago now, is made up of mostly casuals. I’m the only member on here for example and last I looked we are ranked about 13500 ish. To put it mildly we are little fish.
It’s chilled out and we beat 8* titans and generally just play super relaxed. No war tactics, just hit what you can, if you want to etc etc.
I think that sometimes it feels like that the Facebook pages or the forum represents the voice of the player base but in all truth until I told them about the whole Telluria thing none of them even knew it was going on. They were just happily playing the game.
Some of them have Telluria and some of them have Vela. They get super excited when they pull a HOTM or an event hero.
Here’s the point…we have 29 members right now, all fairly active. Even if we drew the line at a top 500 alliances there’s still 13000 alliances ahead of us and one assumes they are all as active as we are. So that’s what, 390,000 players before we get to the top 500?
How many of these players are even aware of all of the behind the scenes stuff? And looking backwards how many of the alliances behind us?
For most players the first they have any idea of the changes is when the app updates. They shrug and carry on.
So back to the question…is ignorance bliss? If your characters just changed and you had no idea it was coming what would the reaction be? It’s happened already by then after all. My guess is the vast majority of people would just carry on playing the game they like. I think envy them sometimes too.
If this doesn’t make sense I blame the 8th beer I just had…
