Oh Wise One
Well, I attempted to quote from that announcement to address specific points. I see that is no longer possible.
As a player desperately hoping for a return to sanity....what I gleaned from that was that are basically giving us the raspberry. Things will stay as they are, period.
They also state that they made the changes based on feedback. Feedback from who????????? Certainly not those of us in the live worlds. I think I would have remembered a poll asking me if I wished them to make the game/wonders come to a complete standstill.
I also see they also make the remark that they want the game to last as long as possible for us. WHY? Are they planning to stop producing chapters????

It might have to do with the slow release of chapters, given the scouting requirements for each chapter entail a good amount of time spent.

they have stated there is around (or at least) 30 chapters planned. So that comment is last referring to setting things up in such a way that they will last through to ch 30. So elements of the wonders was not working or would not work through to ch 30 without change.

Whether or not we agree with them on specific aspects one clear example was wonders that were losing their power every chapter as what they linked to did not scale well.

( in general ) 100% with ya there Mykan
So elements of the wonders was not working or would not work through to ch 30 without change.
one clear example was wonders that were losing their power every chapter as what they linked to did not scale well.

Isn't this a case of :
new code/content that works with exsisting game,
even if that means a bit more finness to achieve it.... or
new code/content with no finness, that hinges on
changing substantially the current game.

Either way, new code/content must be dev'd/written
but only 1 of those shatters the trust between mgmt
and the playerbase.

Its also possible that those AWs had diminishing returns
to balance somewhat endgame players and the rest of us.
Now, that imbalance is back, just its harder to achieve
the imbalance. Thats apparent from the reports of those
whom have everything max'd and they said they were
more powerfull now.

I can support your premise of necessary chgs to facilitate
the future, but those chgs could've be done with the future
code/content not exsisting code. I cannot support the premise
where the only way to add new content, is to change the whole
game 1st. It shows a lack of ingenuity on the Dev's part. (to me)

I spent my diamonds on the game as it was.
Its like purchasing and paying for a V8 engine in my car and come out one morning to find the manufacturers have decided they only want a small engine in that model.
They steal my engine which I paid for and say there ya go, sorry bout your luck.

If you are broaching that possibility, then the "new management" would have been back at around chapter 17-18 when the amounts of goods, orcs, etc. went beyond what was previously balanced to the required provinces of the chapter. This new direction was allowed to persist, and because of it the ancient wonders were made to also be scaled to the new direction with this recent change.

Hi everyone!

Version 1.193​

It will go live on the EN servers from February 13th and all other servers from February 15th. On Mobile, the version will be available during that same week.

Improvements
:building:

  • We have seen your feedback about getting something back from Ancient Wonders you no longer need and also to be able to convert Combining Catalyst into Spell Fragments, and we are now adding these options:
    • When selling an Ancient Wonder you'll now earn 1 Royal Restoration (RR) and 2 Combining Catalysts (CC) per level of your Ancient Wonder.
    • 3 new recipes were added that convert Combining Catalyst into Spell Fragments.
  • Missing Royal Restorations in build and upgrade costs can now be replaced with Diamonds.
    • Developer note: Previously, crafting Royal Restorations in the Magic Academy was the sole option to get them by using Diamonds. We are adding this direct option for your convenience after having seen some of you have asked for it last week. Crafting at the Magic Academy remains the cheapest way to access additional RR with Diamonds. Now you simply have a more direct way, available on demand, also for smaller quantities where you don't need to spend additional Spell Fragments or take up a crafting slot.
  • 2 new Elven portraits and 2 new Human portraits are added for players in chapter 3 and above.
  • New sorting for the Inventory was added, now you can sort by date received. (this will go live on all servers on February 15th EN including)
  • We have added a content linked to the upcoming Blessing of the Phoenix event.

Some bugs have been fixed​

  • The Ancient Wonder Shrine of the Champions now gives the correct amount of Ranking Points.
  • We fixed a bug that prevented the players from recruiting troops.
  • The order of the Ancients Wonders in the Gallery has been fixed.
  • A display issue has been fixed in the messages tab, sometimes the messages with very long titles were cut off.
  • We fixed an issue that prevented from watching an ad on the first try.
  • When too many players in the fellowship reach the last chest in Spire of Eternity, the tooltip is cut off on the top. Now it is visible to all participants.
  • An incorrect time format in Spire of Eternity Progression Bubble was fixed.(mobile)
  • Other minor bugs have been fixed.
Do not hesitate to let us know your feedback on the changes by leaving a comment in: [link removed] Thank you for your help and assistance!

Ahhh yes, we asked to spend diamonds on getting RR spells!
Actually with everything that was yelled and screamed about, in the forum and Discord, us spending real money to do the levelling that was free a couple of weeks ago, that is what you have taken and run with? Holy Crud, its a freaking joke!!

Thank you Pheryll for sharing this for the non discord members.

And Aussie Nailed it too. Thank you Inno for proving that all these changes are only about them making money! Normally I would spend some money on the season of dreams and this event. But I refuse to spend money now!

The Beta community has said that the diamond cost for RR use is 50 diamonds per RR. Also it looks like the sell value for small premium culture buildings is being changed to spell fragments instead of RR.

I don’t buy premium cultural buildings, but this seems like it ought to get a big ole BOO! You pay :diamond: for premium buildings you ought to at least get RRs back when you sell them. (Are you listening Inno?)

Didn't you notice..... we get a Deal tho .....
We get to spend 66% more for 10 RRs... rechecking

Yep, all these changes had nothing to do with levelling the game.
It was totally Inno's way to dig money out of FTP people.
The price for RR dpells, as with everything they sell with diamonds, is a total and utter joke.
At least make it affordable.
Any one else take a look at the top 20 or so Fellowships lately?
They are all down on players and its getting worse. We have lost several already. In both my worlds :(

The flower cage (elven premium culture 1x1 building) costs only 26 diamonds. When buildings were assigned CC or RR rewards, the premium culture all were assigned RRs no matter how small the cost to buy them was. This meant 26 diamonds could have been used to purchase 1 RR, which defeats the 50 diamond per RR valuation that they now have.

One additional change!
  • To avoid that a Premium Culture Building refund has more value than its costs, the following 5 buildings in the game will now grant Spell Fragments when sold instead of Royal Restorations: Magic Chasm (270 Spell Fragments), Barbecue Area (340 Spell Fragments), Royal Guard (260 Spell Fragments), Anchor Point (410 Spell Fragments), Flower Cage (153 Spell Fragments).

We lost 5 active (Top) players 1 week after the change. Our AM was one of them. He is/was 3rd overall (since he quit 8th as a now) in C world. He lost over 1 mil in culture.

AND an AW update, I am backing up on AWs to level. Which means........ closer to the end of my game :(

Still hope inno has more postitive changes before that happens.
