    Well I certainly hope you aren't still in chapter 7 for 5 more years:D
    (an advanced city can make 2B in ~100 days)

    That's hard to argue. I've been tempted to place a level 3 fairy portal in my cities just for looks.
    Maybe the trick is to fill your city with the tallest event* buildings you can find and hide the orc poo.

    *Emphasis on the word event, because this post was almost on topic:eek:

    EDIT: this post doesn’t belong here, it’s just a bad result of a mass move from Winter Magic!. ;-)

    Conclusion: meh, Magic Academy is overrated. :p Both enchantment quests are behind me. If I go to sleep late, I’ll be done with the sequential quests today. Just in time to drown all those snowflakes in tomorrow’s Wishing Wells. (Everything is ready for the remaining quests, just waiting for the 9 hour productions.)

    PS: I’m not really recomending such approach, though. It indeed required more planning, scheduling and thinking than usual. But if someone likes challenge, they can apparently get by without MA.

    The part above marked red by me is the main difference. My baby city (the city without MA*) just entered 5th chapter, it has 36 expansions and not even 10 tournament provinces available. I imagine the situation might be slightly different when you finish Amuni. ;-)

    *My main city is in Woodelves, it actually has huge space after getting rid of Orcs and the event was super easy there - already finished and just waiting for selected daily offers to come up. I did use MA for one of the enchantment quests, but it wasn’t needed, because all those tournament provinces 10+ provide more than enough enchantments in the second first round.

    EDIT: corrected misleading round info.

    And therein lies the dilemna. im chapter 7, i have a few months maybe a year till im at the point i can throw gold away.
    Sure you can fast track it by feeding AW's and such like but for me personally i like plodding along at my own pace. you get to the endgame too quick then it becomes more of whats the point of waiting around for a new guest race, time to move on to something new coz this is boring.
    How many times do you want to beat your tournament score or win the FS adventures that are already boring enough as they are.

    If you have no spare gold, then wholesaler vs KP buying is an irrelevant question. If you do have spare gold then the wholesaler is more "throwing away" than buying KP is.
    You're right about running out of stuff to do if you hit the end. I've almost quit a couple of times this past year waiting for new content. It was unavoidable for me though since I wanted a challenge, and the only one I could find in the game was to see how quickly I could finish chapters.

    you chose the title of this thread:p:D:D

    my original question was why do people buy kp outside of quests :D

    but seriously i do enjoy this game as i play it, i dont go in for all the maths side of it, if it looks like it will benefit me i will go for it.:)

    you chose the title of the other thread too which is where this probably should be but i think dizzie lizzie has caused confusion by splitting our original convo into 2 threads..:D

    I didn't choose the title of this one. In fact, I didn't realize our convo had been split in 2 until after I posted.

    On the topic of 5 years. I plan to be living beach-side in SE Asia between trips to travel the world.:D

    I disagree entirely. I didn't like Fairies, Orcs or Woodelves as far as chapters go. I thought there were a lot of grand buildings in chapter 5 and now I am happy again in S&D, but I will linger here as long as possible because I hate the idea of turning my city into farmland in Halflings.

    My biggest dislikes were the Orcs and Halflings, the chapters dragged on to long for my liking, I loved the S&D the most but am also really liking the Elementals currently.

    To answer the opening title, if the game is still here in 5 years then yes I will still be here, god willing. :)

    Orcs was a tedious grind. Woodelves have been quite pretty, but they did make me give up for a year

    omg orcs :eek: city filled with mud, deleted half of my buildings just to build massive amount of shrooms and finish faster. Even tho they are no.1 for me difficulty wise, i fell like amuni are dumbest of them all. never felt im doing some guest race through it. Fairies- quickest, easiest, best looking chapter :) Halflings felt most relaxing. hopefully they dont screw up game in next few years. If i dont become milionare in 5 years i'll be still here, clicking around city and map:p probly
