A few years ago I stopped playing the game as I had to focus on Uni and I was also growing a bit bored of it.
Now I’d like to come back to the game, but I’d like to start from scratch so I can sort of “relearn” the game as I’m assuming a lot of things change since I last logged in.
I looked up how I could reset my account, but unfortunately, it seems like Game Center keeps me from doing it as it saved my progress.
Granted I haven’t spent days looking for a solution, but I thought someone here maybe knew what to do
Yes. Send SG a ticket, via their support, asking them to do just that. You have to rummage through the menus quite a bit to find that request, but it is in there somewhere. I used that to wipe my account early 2020.
Alternatively, create an new Gmail account and log into Empires with that. Both options will put you back at the beginning, tutorial and everything.
Best wishes and happy gaming
Edit: Option 2 assumes you are running on Android. Although Apple must have ways of having multiple accounts too, given the huge number of players in Empires running alts.
I sent a first one to which I received a quick reply with the “how to reset progress” answer from their FAQ, to which I replied by asking for the account to be completely deleted.
So it’s been hours since the first ticket, but if you tell me it can take weeks I’ll just wait longer
I’m playing another mobile game where tickets are usually adressed within the hour of them being sent.
Once the ball is rolling, a lot depends on how fast you respond to them. They email on several occasions asking if you wish to proceed, as they unpick your account from their servers a bit at a time. You won’t notice it in game, but that’s how it’s done apparently.
I’m sure you’ll be a happy “new” player again soon enough.
Just create a second account on Game centre linked to a disposable/non essential email address. You won’t lose your initial original game progress and you can make level 17 on the new one in about 3 days. Game mechanics have changed in that time but you won’t be able to meaningfully tell at that level. You’ll get all the same vanilla heroes.
