My Dearest Forum members,
after nearly 3 years of fun, talks and discussions with really nice people I decided to let the chapter “Empires and Puzzles” end for me this weekend.
I had a good time here…as normal member, Regular and Beta Tester.
The reasons for this decision are various but mainly I got a problem with the direction this game is going now.
In the past also I was bored of doing the same things again and again and was glad when Small Giant step by step implemented new tasks for me. But there is a point where it is getting too much…I feel driven and forced to play whenever possible to get a crumb of the big cake that was baked for the big spenders…with only a decent result. But I see no way anymore to keep-up without paying much money for the game. Don’t get me wrong…the players that are opening their wallets are important for this game also for the F2P members as they give SG the money for improvements and the fact that they have an effort was always ok for me as well. But now you can buy everything and patience is getting less important when investing a few hundred bugs into your account every month.
This seems to be the main goal for SG now. Best example is Telluria. When I see how many people got her on the battle field in war and raids I know that more of those heroes will appear. Also the new quests in Beta going same direction…only created to lure people to spend more money.
I also miss the times where it was the main part of the game, to kill titans with a great bunch of people in your alliance, having talks and fun with them.
Now the titan becomes a minor matter. Finding time to coordinate war, passing events and quests, fulfill all valor task and hoping for a better loot from chests is now the major part of the game.
I am not willing to spend so much time in a game that does not give me the fun anymore as a F2P player.
But I also want to thank you…thx to the team of Small Giant creating a wonderful game that was part of my life for about 3 years.
Thanks to the Regulars and Moderators making this forum a better place. @zephyr1, @Rook, @JonahTheBard

Many thanks to my old alliance “The Ironclad” / “Black Pearl Armada” @Branwen, @Rochelle,
…and thank you to all the others I cannot mention because of the max of 10 people to @ in one post
I will try to hop around to some alliances I know during this, my last weekend, in order to say good bye personally.
GOOD LUCK AND ALWAYS HEADS UP!
