    Discussion Gathering of the Phoenix Cults

    First of all, even though I knew it was allowed, I opened a ticket to support before starting my farms up, and they confirmed it was perfectly allowed and not "grey area cheating". As a matter of fact I opened two tickets on the matter, one of which because I wanted to try humans and I had...

    Discussion Gathering of the Phoenix Cults

    The good: the artwork and fixed, non-infinite questline. Very doable in both the endgame and earlier chapters, well balanced, good job. And the ability to turn the useless coldfire stuff into the potentially useful old ones, just in case someone needed one or two more levels in their Firechicken...

    Discussion News from Beta (may contain spoilers!)

    Two more wonders focusing on ranking points? You gotta be kidding me. The only use I could possibly see in the Spire AW is an alternative to the ToS for lategame players who want even more KPs, however given long it'll be for the investment to repay itself it's likely that only those who push...

    Discussion Multiplayer in the Spire of Eternity

    Not in Elvenar's implementation outside of the minor things I mentioned, as far as I'm concerned. In this form, it serves only to fuel addiction, create FOMO and exploit those who are prone to gambling. It might be good in other forms - random/procedurally generated maps for other kind of games...

    Discussion Multiplayer in the Spire of Eternity

    I'd like to see a little less randomness involved and perhaps more appealing rewards for the last chest, as to make the full climb appealing/feasible for the average player (it currently isn't). That'd also make more hardcore players happier, seeing as how they can't carry others through...

    Elvarian Carnival Floats

    Same pop but 3700 culture less than the Frozen Shipwreck (which is the same in size and orientation), overall efficiency much lower than many other hybrid buildings, many of which have been recently available at that, and some of which are even obtainable as a mystery object. It's not horrible...

    Discussion News from Beta (may contain spoilers!)

    I'd be surprised if it made sense to anyone at all. Devs probably went on holiday somewhere, and/or decided to honor the "one step forward, two steps back" tradition. Now I wonder... am I going to spend my candies on this 1x8 hours prize, or am I going to wait for the next 4x8 hours one? Never...

    Elvarian Carnival Floats

    I like most floats, especially the Dragon and Constructs ones. Others however are absolutely horrible (the Prince Charming and Troll ones for instance, though they're from last year). That's as far as looks are concerned though. Stats-wise? Not worth placing, most of them not even in new cities...

    Best AW

    Well, evidently our playstyles are very different if you manage with 20% (920k in Chapter XV) supplies @ level 30 in. I wouldn't be able to live off that, whereas a measly level 6 PT is enough to keep me stocked even when burnings millions of supplies (and the fact that it has such good returns...

    Buildings that make the least sense...

    Well, gems are crystals by definition, and in no way bound to a certain colour, so the CL is the least of my concerns. I'll go with the Goblin Magic Dust manufactory level 27 instead. Everything orcs and goblin related is somewhat disturbing and/or creepy, granted, but that one trumps them all...

    Best AW

    Disclaimer: the following reflects my very personal priorities, if your playstyle differs - e.g. you went for an early Tome, or have a ton of Magic Residences, or do not possess certain key event buildings - your mileage will vary. This should be obvious, but since some are drawn to polemics, I...

    Discussion Elvarian Carnival

    According to elvenarchitect the efficiency is 8.33 so on par with a lot of good seed buildings but worse than the pond of autumn and festival merchant. Apparently it has an early collect of 24 hours, it's shown on the elvengems preview page at least.

    Update Discussion Version 1.97

    Yes, but you do not have the right to accuse others of "echo-chambering" (these buzzwords, I swear...) when you're factually wrong, nor to draw assumptions based on... what exactly? Your gut feeling? Because you see, not only such assumptions are entirely baseless, they're false, too. I've...

    Newbie thoughts on the game

    It's not most intuitive game out there, granted but it's definitely not the worst either. What's lacking is precise in-game information, to the point that some of it is actually deceiving (squad sizes anyone?), but I wouldn't call it a game with a steep learning curve. That'd be something...

    Ancient Wonders in Elvenar chapter

    I have already used my numbers and drawn my own conclusions, which remain the same. To me, that wonder is completely and utterly useless. To others, that might not be the case. I had already stated as much in my original post, a fact that you kept and keep on ignoring, deciding instead to...

    Discussion News from Beta (may contain spoilers!)

    I most certainly hope so. However I'm not so sad about it - admitting to a mistake (albeit partially and just in facts) is not something that's often seen from gaming companies nowadays. The potential for examples is endless. I will be sad should they re-revert to the trash they pulled off in...

    Discussion Elvarian Carnival

    ++ The random nonsense is gone, being able to plan out and finish the event again takes away a lot of stress and FOMO from it. A change that is as unexpected as it is welcome. + Being able to progress at almost the same pace with both an endgame city and some progressing cities (Orcs and Wood...

    Ancient Wonders in Elvenar chapter

    If by "top" cities you're referring to rank, our POVs vastly differ, because rank doesn't necessarily translate into efficiency. The reason for this are many, but mostly it's because MRs give a ton of ranking points whereas pop/cult hybrid and event buildings don't. I also don't quite get your...
