The reason why Empires hasn’t had any major improvements in the past 1.5 years, improvements that would make the game more fun or offer quality of life or alliance improvements, is because SG has been working on their new game, Puzzle Combat.
This is a request to either hire more developers or bring resources back to Empires, to make this game great again.
I know why companies do this, it’s to diversify, but I think this decision was really dumb. Companies spend a lot of time and money trying to create winning games, you got lucky and created one, and now you abandon it?? There’s no guarantee that Puzzle Combat will do well, it could flop or just be middling.
Empires is a winner, a goose that lays the golden eggs, and SG is just starving it right now. This game should have been able to go strong for 6 years or more, but now that’s in doubt.
I am in no way suggesting that Puzzle Combat is a better game, I’m not even comparing the two games.
So this is a request that you give Empires more developer resources. In 2 years, Empires deserves a lot more than a few new heroes and more map stages.
