Also, if I did, which world would you all recommend? I was thinking beta would be exciting but not sure yet. Right now I'm in US6 Sinya Arda.
Yavimaya, beta is nice to get previews of events, but I gave up my city there because of a number of reasons. I didn't find the fellowship I wanted (probably because of my own laziness in searching for one.) I decided to revive an old ID that my son got for me that I was too busy to use back then (2016 or 17, I think). It was always meant to be mine, but when I didn't have time for it, he played that ID to chapter 4 before abandoning it, and I asked Elvenar to restore it to me maybe a year ago, since we couldn't remember the password and the email was bad too, lol. They restored it and were really nice about it.

I kind of stumbled onto a good fellowship with it. (Actually, Henroo invited me there, so that was the no-work way of finding a good fellowship, lol.) I think if you are really serious about a second city, you can find a good fellowship on any world, beta included. One thing I learned, playing solo is really, really hard when you're just starting out.

Don't think that's a bug. They're testing changes to chap 1-5 right now for new cities. It's live on EN, although they're calling the changes "minor differences". I would like a minor difference in the amount of Pet Food I have too.
yeah it's not minor, on the other hand it is.
They slashed the KP requirment for the first 5 chapters by a lot, more than 50%.
So you'll get to those chapters faster than you can blink an eye.

Unfortunately the communication is ver poor, becasue the emphasis is on "minor" and not on how extreme they cut into the chapter requirments the only thing people see now is tournament en spire are delayed to chapter 4/5 WAAAAH! instead of the fact that pretty much unlock the spire as fast as you did before.

They are just streamlining and trying to improve new player retention. it can be somewhat slow, and overwhelming when you open the game for the first time. the game basics, crafting, tournament, spire it's a lot to take in.

So they decided to speed up the pace of the first 5 chapter a lot, and introduce each of the extra game mechanics 1 by 1 in an orderly fashion, by a proper research instead of " it's just there for no good reason" and what should i do?

You also prevent them from throwing there "starting recources like 100 HM/LM and LR in tournament/spire when they really need it on the world map to unlock provinces so they can build up resources. and not be stuck for weeks rebuilding that initial stock.

We have to remember that most players arent like us.

:eek: They're not???
nope most players do not read the forums, so not do there research. play less active, and do not get into a very supportive fellowship.
Your game experience is very dependeble on these factors. if you are lucky enough to get into an active fellowship with a good mentor your experience is so much differert then when you join an inactive fellowship. or a fellowship with similar new people.

Some people read, some are just lucky to get into the right fellowship at start the rest has a totally different experience.

I have a lot of gum tree and mana plants. About 28 mana plants and 35 gum trees. They are 1x1 of course and the most powerful producers of gum and mana. But they offer one other advantage: they are flexible and allow me to shape my farm any way I want. It's like having a flexible border on one side of my city and enables me to shape things and use space a lot more efficiently. So 1x1 buildings not only produce more but add flexibility to your layout.

I agree. And I also have fairly large Moonstone sets from back when it was in the Spire. But that is no longer an option for new players. Now they must make their Moonstone set in the magic academy and are limited to 1 copy of each building.

67 days in and my experimental cater-only city is getting close to being found lacking in provinces needed to unlock chapter 5.
A the moment, I'm running a 7 province tourney, 148 KP remaining on my tech tree until ch 5 Advanced Scouts needs 7 more provinces completed. I've bottomed out on goods at the moment and may need to start cross-tier trading something fierce. Mathing it all out... 7 provinces provides 56 KP. Tournament at this point will give off 8+8+8+5 = 29KP. That brings me down to 63KP required. Less the 2 carting libraries that I have, this gives me about 2.5 to 3 days to somehow come up with the goods needed to complete those provinces before I need to start putting KP someplace else (which goes against the whole "racing" thing).

What exciting times to be had! @Iyapo1 , how far have you gotten on your city?

I am currently researching Ancient Wonders of the Tempest(the wonder tech) in chapter 3. I need 532 KP to get into chapter 4(includes advanced scout KP).
I am also 8 measly little steps away from gold spire this week.....loosing nails and taking it one step at a time between production runs. I have 6 tents this week but that is not universal as I do not have six of each province type cleared yet. I am at 46 of 50 cleared provinces and hanging back for the next event.

All in all, my baby city is rolling along and in 8 days it will be a month old

Chapter 4! One month and 5 days.

I ended up overscouted by 6 provinces but I did not even scout into ring six until I opened my new chapter(which really helps with clearing costs). I waited till the spire started today to unlock the new chapter because my t3 production could not handle the spire. I need the extra time to get my chapter 4/ T3 upgrades researched an built.
I fed my coldfire phoenix and started power scouting ring six but again...I will not so much as dip my toe into ring seven until I hit chapter 5. So my tournament performance is going to be limited by my available tents.

I did not get all my chapter 3 upgrades done. I still have Main Hall, Workshop, and Residence upgrades to finish. I have T1 upgrades in chapter 4 and my eyes are all over @MaidenFair's manufactory charts(thank you for those, very helpful).

Sadly, here ends the experiment.

I am taking a hiatus from the game. It was wonderful chatting with all of you but I have lost that loving feeling for the game. Take care all and best wishes.

Well that's not the Flower Goblin Epiphany we were expecting... :confused:
Can we refuse your resignation letter? Ok, fine...it's not always about what I want. We will miss you, Flower Goblin!
