So lets go back to old school. No relics,No subs. just crystals. No allies everyone against everyone. No marking blue. Just 5 people teams, limited boosting allowed. just plain fighting.

Seth, I will tell you this:

I've never stayed up all night because of this game, but the night 669 did, baby I was up all night and I was even at my girlfriends house!! I was like imma die tonight lmao. The mistake that was made, was not on your end. JP has such a hold on the world honestly, we'd all be dead if we didn't do diplomatic things. The super troops woulda wiped everyone out if JP didn't wreck 3 garrisons. The world was boosted a lot it seems. It wasnt ur fault, people just gave up when SOTO/JW fell down. Nobody to stand against JP so we all just died off went inactive or befriended them. If you do it next era, maybe it'll be more heated, I don't know. I enjoyed it, just watching it, I can't imagine if I had the army capable of taking on a garrison how much fun I'd of had.


Its amazing to see an admin that has the drive to shake things up in a good way, an admin that has compassion for his player base, thats rare, do me a favor seth, don't ever lose that!

Yeah 669 really hurt me, sending units 100% more than that and now all died in battle. better to place 699 at Earth 1 for more power of allies are there. :(

That's not true at all. We have just a few boosters in JP, and most of us haven't used any tokens (red or blue) since tick 300 or so. What you're seeing isn't tokens, it's late nights, dedication, tactics and skill.

Im sorry to be so pessemistic at the offset of today's conversation here. Ill admit, I had very high hopes and was very excited to bring back something I havent done since 2008.

You are right though, JP had the grip early on, and too many were forced into a position of doing whatever they said or dying. I announced the event at the onset of the era, in hopes that it would be enough to attract the talent to make it memorable. This time, it was not to be.

It was very disheartening to hit that brick wall. I don't blame anyone but myself here. Perhaps I let it get to me a tad more than I should have, but last time I did this, I had so much fun... It is not often that us admins get to have fun like that too...

It was a little depressing to think that it was no longer possible to have that much fun unless I was lucky enough to have all of the top teams in BD join the era. It really had(has) me second guessing myself.


Anyway, I would like to thank you all for your patience and/or feedback in this instance. I appreciate your participation, whatever form it came in.

The boosting now is outrageous. If you spend time with surveys other playing the game you may be able to boost more, but this takes away from game play time.
Alliances are winning before the first 500 ticks. I really like the game BD. But its harder for the average player to get a fair start- feels like our society today- people with money or lots of free time win- no skills needed.
I understand that BD needs support, but are we selling our souls to play?

Why does everyone assume Boosting teams can't be beaten?
Also , no lifeing is not a requirement to win eras, just teamwork and determination!

People assume that because red (or blue) boosting teams normally get such a foothold in an era that is nigh impossible to actually do something without upsetting them or starting a war. Or getting blamed for "backstabbing". I thought that the 669 idea was excellent. Just the people that liked to war...aren't their anymore. People have become lax and complacent on 2nd and 3rd place blue tokens.
http://prntscr.com/2bw7ek
Thats an example on how lazy people have become... really? Just third? You never thought of trying to rally maybe a couple subs behind you and a couple other mid ranked alliances to try to storm JP? Their armies were weakened and crippled by fighting the super units.(One can only assume for being r48).

Welp that's just my piece of mind. Good luck next era everyone:)
