Lmao, i was expecting this.

They could at least explain what new features because right now It sounds like a loot nerf. Events and Atlantis rises never overlap. Honestly dissapointed in SG for nerfing one of the best features this game has.

Many thanks SG! Especially from everyone who can’t play at full swing over the weekend :+1:

And also, why does SG throws news like those in a closed thread? Are they afraid of negative feedback or they just don’t wanna listen to players’ complaints? Might as well add those questions to that AMA thread :expressionless:

In another thread I asked to check balance WE and duration/availability of events.
This is not what I had in mind…

And I agree that it would be nice to explain to users why the decrease of 25% is being made. I was happy that it lasted 4 days as normal working man I can’t be online those 4 days. Now you HAVE to be online the remaining 3 to make something out of it.

Is this your fault?

Thursday to Saturday would definitely make more sense. I agree with others, this event was the only thing that eliminated my painfully dull grind for resources the entire rest of the month. It enhanced the game so I don’t understand the nerf. Guess I gotta finish those Advanced Houses now…

Why on earth would they do this?
Atlantis rising has been the best thing to be introduced to this game
in a long time.
On a post about the alchemy lab I posted that I (and probably) many others wouldn’t use the lower levels as I could just farm Atlantis rising.
I think 4* crafting materials have a gem cost if you use the lab to try and get them.
This leads me to believe that it’s another money grab to lessen our ability to obtain for free things that they want to charge us for.
I’m using more 4* crafting materials to make battle items to compete for a decent rank in the event because there’s better loot. Before I’d just complete them and make sure I was in line to get the 6 extra world energy flasks.
So they’ve created another reason to obtain good crafting materials, lessened our ability to obtain them for free and introduced another way to pay for them and then tell us a reason that doesn’t make logical sense. An event that finishes 10 days before, impacts Atlantis Rising but raid tournaments, wars and emblem quests don’t?
I’m sorry Small Giant but you’re standing next to me, my pocket’s getting wet and you’re telling me its raining when there isn’t a cloud in the sky.
Let’s wait for the “in preparation for the coming season 3, atlantis rising will no longer happen”.

I could understand if Challenge event awarded iron, and food, but it does not.

So many recruits, swords, PXP and 1* / 2* heroes , from Rare Stage 3 but zero iron and zero food.

The reduced time for Atlantis rises is due to “extended duration” of challenge events? :confused:

But the way they’re scheduled, they should never overlap. Challenge Events are 2nd week of every month, Atlantis Rises is every 4th week… :confounded:

Whatever those other “upcoming new features” are, hope they’re good. Atlantis Rises is one of my favorite events, the reduced time to get good loot will hurt.

Utter load of bull. Keep the 4 days and don’t mess with your player base

Its looking like the costumes will be presented as some kind of event … And yes AR makes the lab even more dismally unattractive than it would be without it.

Dear SG, there are plenty of things that could be more balanced in the game. Nerfing something that recieves universally positive feed back IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

If this is a move to make things that have received a LOT of negative feed back seem more positive in comparison… Shame on you!

Yes, it is a loot nerf and nothing else. But try to put in their shoes.
They can’t say out loud “Hey guys, for our business we give you too much free stuff, so we have to cut it! Be well!”
So they just throw at us whatever reason.

It’s a shame, but that’s how it is.
Slowly but surely every aspect of this game is turning into a money maker, but that’s partly our fault.

Our general spending behaviour push them for this things.
They just take advantage of it, like any other company.

If people overall spend more gems for refills during atlantis, then they reached their target.
If people out of frustration spend less, then it’s a failure.

What will you do?

I hope so.

If the idea you’ve linked is the ‘new content’ I think all this negative reaction would evaporate.

I guess it’s likely to be costumes or something though.

So disappointing… Just when they came up with something really useful to farm for resources, they regret it…
It was so much fun to be able to farm quickly for backpacks especially…
The constant lack of Am is already frustrating, why not cheer your customers up every now and then? Why do they want us to be frustrated. Well to spend more money of course, but still, that’s just sad…

Costumes is at V24 and they probably will release it at Oct before halloween event (at least that what i would do)
2 months later Christmas event
Do they plan to release more “new featureS” cuz i could think of only 1 feature

Horrible move… It really makes you wonder why you are here…

  • They are making the event where people spend longer, so people are spending more
  • and they are making the period where people could get ■■■■ from free (and not expensive stuff, mind you! But nice materials to craft items) shorter so people have to spend more if they want to get the same stuff they are getting now…

Thinking about your income is alright, SG, but pissing your player base can eventually mean you are losing your source of income…

the new feature they are talking about is the costumes, including in that is a key quest that allows people to obtain keys to do free costume summons

as a side note this reduce duration sucks. If they want to reduce it, how about a bonus to make up for it, like instead of -3 on energy cost, make it -4

By lowering the AR days I would put more loot tickets & world energy offers if I were in SGG’s shoes.

Well, I guess that my AC drops due to AR will lower from around 40 to 30/month.

LOL kind of a silly question with an obvious answer… what are my “thoughts” on them reducing the duration of Atlantis? Ummm same as everyone else. I don’t like it.

Would be like if your boss called you in to the office for a one-on-one meeting and asked you, “what are your thoughts on continuing to do the same amount of work, but for a lower salary?” :laughing:

Who in their right mind is going to say, “sounds great!”?
