    Imagine you were starting as a new player, and Ads for Life did not exist.

    The only way to revive your regs was to spend diamonds, or wait out the Timer of Misery.

    I always do battles with the main goal of coming out with zero health loss and no timers at all. I do this because I cannot trust ads working correctly, ie reviving 5 regs per 24 hours. Ads have over time been improved, but on average I still only get about 2 regs revived per 24 hours, not 5, due to ads not working or working, but never delivering the revive.

    The 4 things making me not so happy at the moment are:

    1 Bad spawns in pvp, go back to only/more 3s and 4s
    2 Alliance chat working so poorly, 95% of messages never appear
    3 Ads delivering a revive only about 40% of the tries
    4 The interpretation of the word SOON, with all the above not being so fun, atleast release a new regiment and new map shires.....?

    I see it as a very welcome bonus (although the ads are very usually terrible), but this game is very good anyway with, or without, them.
    But then I don't play too seriously.
    Can appreciate, for those who do that it, along with force restarting app, has become a necessity to compete at the top levels

    I wouldn't mind at all, I always tackle the battles where I expect to lose units when I know I'll be offline for a while (sleeping, working, etc) so I don't mind the timer of misery.

    I dont have to imagine the game without them. I have never had them! I am now WL20 and would still like them at some point.

    I don't have them. So, no option for me to vote on.
    The challenge exists, and the new continent and regiments have made a difference.
    But, this is clearly a bias which favours longer term players, who can revive units instantly, which make PvP ranking even less meaningful.
    Bit like formula one in the 80's, when some cars had a turbo option, but others didn't.
    Level the playing field please.

    My second account doesn't have them, either. It's a big reason I've put that account down for the time being.

    I'm F2P, tho.

    It's weird to me that Innogames doesn't have this on for all players when it was Ads in a different game app that directly lead me to this game. Otherwise I would never have found WoA on my own.

    What about a better feature to solve this?

    What about the Tree of life on the map? (That wasn’t there, then was, then wasn’t)
    Maybe use this as a healing version of the Sky arch?
    Obviously, taking far less time (or there’d be no point) but able to heal units in a similar way?
    There’d need to be a cost: maybe in gold or diamonds?

    What would happen if the Devs simply cut the time in half. Would that be so hard code wise? Would it actually screw up game balance? I dont think so, but I'm not WL23 either.

    I think BlueRuby has a very game logical suggestion regarding the Tree of Life having slots like the academy that cut healing time down by a large percentage factor. Maybe a 50% 1st slot, 40% 2nd, and so on.

    I do seriously think I am going to get mad when I hit WL23 and start competing for Top 100 PvP slot only to continuously loose to those with ads. I suppose I might not know right away, but suspect that would become clear in time. Maybe I won't know, but either way, it does seem like a very unfair advantage on the surface of it all.

    It is, and it interlinks with the forced app close and excessive crits. Hope the devs have a plan to level the playing field.

    at WL22 im facing many W23 as pvp opponent. and i so hate those crits with insane dmg weapon. enemy GG is just crit me all time, due to having long range i cannot avoid her. and this two bit thing... full HP enemy = 1 HP enemy crit wise... its just BS. the way this game is time consuming is a very frustrating way. basically 70% of your time is either wait 1-2-3min due to CV, or because you had to close app and reload.. arrrggghhh, great tactical game, but it has its down side. i had to let it out, sry all :)

    No, the Sun Temple has nothing to do with this. We'll reveal details soon.

    The sun temple does nothing. Huge letdown.
