It's not panic, it's reality that if it continues at this way at some point it will become impossible.This is an assumption based on projected mathematics applied to gaming points most players do not reach. Most players dont go past the high halls. Most players dont go past ten tents. At what chapter will the costs of that over run production?
Tournament slayers and KP farmers keep inciting panic and despair in players that are minimally affected.
Note: I am not a competitive tourney player; I'm content with 5 rounds of 20 provinces and a score of 3-4K.It lives past tent 15, past the frog, and past chapter 12.
Right. But the forum is filled with:The amount of seeds from the Trader depends on the number of AW levels; the more AW levels, the more seeds with each collection. Choosing to have fewer AW levels will hamstring a player
I think the above is very misleading. Your regular average player does not go out far enough in the tournament or up high enough in the spire to get chewed up.but even by mid-game, if you've placed too many expansions and/or invested too heavily into AW's, you're just completely screwed in both the tournaments + spire play.
I am such a player, now, except that I do a little of both. My days of rocking the spire & tourny are long gone. Thankfully, my FS has no requirements, but I still like playing all the content in the game...I have placed more than a few expansions & have invested enough in my AWs & tech to see that I would never be able to get my six library sets now (If they were still in the Spire)...I spent about 5-6 months rocking the Spired for my sets. In short, it's the only way I can still participate some & sustain the losses between goods/troops/mana/seeds & sentient goods.To preserve their sanity, many end up choosing between the Spire and the tourney.
I am liking the 2kp and I can't wait for the next event and the extra currency. Sweet!I was wondering why I even placed this phoenix.... hmmmm.... mana I guess but the other two bonus productions the 4000 royal velvet (I am boosted on velvet) and the one KP, meh... too bad we cannot hide the darn bird! I should've thought about it better lol
In Ch.9, my 5th fight in spire is already *over* 1k troops/slot. My actual SS is only 765.I think the above is very misleading. Your regular average player does not go out far enough in the tournament or up high enough in the spire to get chewed up.
?well above my *actual* SS.
The point is, if my current chapter has decided that my fighting is 'balanced' at 700-800 units/squad, then why do I suddenly need 1.5-3x (or more!) that number if I want to play beyond the first floor of the spire or 8-9 provinces in the tournament??
Why are you even looking at your *actual* squad size it is a meaningless number? It is not used at all to calculate tournament or spire encounters. It is only used on province encounters on the map and in event/FA quests/badges.
Edit: I think a few wonders use it too...
