I am not saying they are not important, I am saying that if the focus of resource income switches from conquers to oil wells and metal mines the game will lose one of the most challenging features, getting and keeping conquers.


Actually conquers popup everywhere, getting them is not that big of a deal. Also they delete in the end, atleast most of them. Getting and keeping mines and wells imo is more challenging. Especially since they are limited, and there are lots of alliances competing for it and they are spread out over the map.

I've no idea what limit on Force Relocation is removed but certainly not the 24 tick distance limit, so Michael.. why not remove the limit I mentioned earlier?


Previously, you couldn't force relocate a conquer to an outpost with incoming or outgoing squads. Now you can. Especially helpful in defence.

You should post that as a suggestion in the Suggestions Forum, and have a poll added. See if the rest of the community agrees with your idea! :)

Still no word from Michael on what is and isn't considered Ion abuse.

I'll probably PM him later if there isn't a response today.

THERE SHOULD BE AN INCREASE OF FREE TOKENS INSTEAD OF 5 BLUE TOKENS FOR EACH VOTE IT SHOULD BE 10 OR 8 IF YOU INCREASE ALL THE OTHERS MAN GIVE SOME RESPECT FOR PEOPLE WHO TRY HARD TO WIN AND ESPECIALLY IF YOURE GOING TO MAKE THE GAME HARDER :evil: :(


You could try taking that to the suggestions forum but I doubt you'll get much support.

IMO: No.

Well some of these updates such as the ioning missle and less income for conquers is obviously a strategic move to get players to spend more money on tokens. We all know during a big war ioning missles can be key to winning a war and we spend money on tokens now they want to get a little more money for them. Can't blame them, but it does make the game harder for us. The reduction of income from conquers in my opinion is not a good one because already tons of our conquers are daily deleted now they come up with this! I hope they go back to how it was or even make it higher income :D

While you may feel the balance changes are always for the worse
and demand you to 'spend more tokens'

the case is quite different.
every change we make affects EVERYONE, therefore, in the end result, no one is losing.

when you are in a world that everyone makes $1 less an hour, then no one is actually making less.

The idea is to lower slowly the amount of resources available in the world, so there will be less squads flying, and less units. so the game will be easier to play, instead of battles with hundreds of units on a regular basis, such battles will be rare.
it will take less time to manage your colony each time, as well as managing your army will become less time consuming.

we're adding all the time more options to gain resources like resource outposts, increasing wrecks income, global boost bar, mini-games, tokens from voting, tokens from referring, etc etc...
all these changes weren't in the client 2 year ago.

the idea to increase ion cost is to make them more rare, increasing the chance of having nukes actually reach their target.

To be fair Michael, I mostly agree with you... but saying a global reduction affects everyone equally is not true.

Donations are a static increase above the overall income.

Let's say everyone makes $10, and supporters on average spend enough tokens to add an extra $5 to their income.

So the comparison is $10 for non-supporters, $15 for supporters.

Now let's take away $3 from everyone.

Now the comparison is $7 for non-supporters, $12 for supporters.

See the difference? The ratio between the two went from 2 :: 3 to 2 :: 3.43... which basically increases the advantage of supporting. Usually the move in that direction is not very large, but I am just pointing out that a move is indeed being made by following that philosophy of reducing resources for everyone.

Think this woulda been obvious, but Kane, with the decrease of resources in the world, the cost of boosting would be proportionally increased.
