Yes, they have VIP since the beginning. Btw, I know there are different crews (a staff member mentioned, if I recall), but I bet those programmers are veteran E&P players. And I know this for sure, since the games are almost identical. I give you the best example: let’s take the popular mission 8-7. In both games exp loot is 817 I think is pretty obvious they designed the other game based on this one. And I guess not only they are all E&P players, but also I suspect there are few programmers in that crew, who also worked in E&P crew.
About player base, you may be right. Though I don’t think the servers represent a problem for a company which makes millions of dollars profit
The most annoying thing is my hidden phrase. You know how much and how many times this community requested some elementary things. Why would they care only about that game? Practically, a lots of requests from our community, were implemented already in there. And this is confusing and outrageous, I may add. The community requested the lost connection issue to be solved; already there. We requested quests for troops; already there (since the beginning). We requested quests for loot tickets (already there, since yesterday). And I guess there will be many other things implemented there and not here. Because that game is not even released, we have no wars, tournaments, emblems and so on… Btw, about the emblems. You know there were some ideas and requests regarding these emblems. The rumours say the emblems will be available on heroes after the first ascension. I guess we’ll never see something like this in here. And I expect the other crew to also implement the possibility to reset emblems to a specific node, chosen by the player (like would be normal and requested so many times). Because many of us perhaps we don’t want to strip of emblems the whole path of chosen hero. How hard would this be? Let’s be honest, I love this game, but the devs have no respect for us. They say listen to feedback, but we know better than this. Yeah, they listened and actually implemented the AL and how great is this improvement (let’s thank them again, btw).
Bottom line, I do not understand why this lack of respect for our community and why they care only about the other game. It doesn’t matter there are different crews. Like I said, they are for sure E&P players, otherwise they wouldn’t have copied exactly the most things from E&P.
