    The addiction may not be lethal to my health although it's debatable, it's definitely lethal to my free time. :p Just when I thought I've weaned myself off HoMM and Civ, along came WoA. :confused::D

    Was aiming to get both new regiments to 5* on the the same day as I finish boss fight 30, but will not make it. Tomorrow I do battle 30 but need about 80 more shards for the Necromancer. So in a few days all will be maxed, rumour has it Primer will be there today or tomorrow.

    So time to release more of the map and hopefully a brand new regiment too :D

    Battle 30 yesterday and all 5s earlier today. Now just waiting new content.

    Just for info. I hit 4s on both NaC and IR Dec 25. Bought all WH offered shards, collected Smuggler Ship shards and farmed LW. Did not buy any Merchant Shards for Diamonds. 23 days to earn 300 shards to promote both Regiments to 5s. Very reasonable amount of time for normal progress. It was nice to have a little something to look forward to each day.

    Congrats on being first with all regs at 5*, without spending diamonds! I did the same as you, but did not buy the 600 WC shards.Will try battle 30 in a few hours. For once I have 100 K gold and 30K WC, not really a lot, but a good start if they release a new reg and new map region. Got extra battle but refuse to spend diamonds to maybe just reach top 10. So I rr once and then clear map, no matter if I then get a few 1s. Top 100 is guaranteed, and all winnings are then a gain. Not as when I spend diamonds on rerolls, and the winnings is a minus/loss. Diamonds are the only valuable commodity at this stage, and for most players only medals for 1st and 2nd matter, ie change your ranking, For a few only 1st matters, visavi ranking. WC and gold is plenty, except when new map and regs appear. Gold has always been scarce, but with all soon maxed it is not a problem anymore..

    Now only wish is for new content. Maybe SOON ? :D

    23 days and 300 shards.

    I do hope WoA newbies take note of the importantance of WC. The only source of WC is PvP season. You compete to get WC and not leaderboard position. There are too many newbies with hardly any TC and that means slow progress in getting shards to increase regiment's * level.

    I was fortunate enough to have over 200000 WCs saved up when the new regs were released (I had previously maxed all units and would only buy occasional Mythical Gear if it was something I needed). Saved these WCs up over several seasons. Buying all shards for new regs, including 600 WC version, brought me down to less than 170000. This includes awards for everything from Dec 25 until Jan 17. Two season end awards during that time.

    Unless you have a large bank of WCs I would not recommend buying the 600WC slot except when it is discounted to 450. You can’t earn enough in a single season to cover all purchases. In the long run, you get 3 shards at 400 WC for every 2 you would buy at 600 WC. Extrapolate that and it is 300 rather than 200 which is a huge difference.

    WCs are King right now when it comes to shards. Maximize them and spend them wisely.

    One trick for those short on WC’s that I used before I had a big bank. After spawning, put on some common armor/banners to turn those 2s/3s 50 WC battles into 4s 75 WC battles. Commonly referred to as gear swapping. That is 25 extra WCs per fight or 250 per day. That is an extra shard every couple days, plus the battles are more challenging to fight.

    7 shards to finish NAC, and once again all regs will be maxed. Since pvp was converted back to a diamond spending game with negative return, instead of a challenging game of strategy and hurrying to finish 5 hard pvp in 12 hours (ie when spawning of only 3s and 4s was removed for high AP players), there is no big fun in WoA.

    How about converting SOON to now, and release the new regiment and new shires to bring some fun back to the game. Think about Killrod who maxed out the latest 2 regs in 1-2 days, he must be bored out of his mind anticipating new content. Please ease his suffering :D

    There is so much untapped potential for this game, and the devs are blowing it. I hope they wake up.

    How about: Daily individual challenges/tasks. Like defeat 10 SH battles. Or kill x# of AI archers. Or defeat a 3s PvP. Followed by a reward for completing the task.

    Or

    Weekly Alliance challenges. Can be similar to individual challenges, but on a more epic scale. Followed by a reward for alliance members.

    Multiple PvP versions. Shuffle through them so it's not the same boring thing every time. 10v10 maps? Modes without using mages or archers? Use your imagination.

    Come on, Devs! Get to work. We're tired of bugs. We're tired of waiting. We're tired of #soon. We're tired of hype.

    Get this game up to the level it deserves.

    Fun fact: This was the thing I told them should be at the top of the list when they asked for feedback on FB. - Most of my other feedback was just for qol changes.
    The game right now feels like a single player game with a chat in it and a leaderboard that doesn't mean anything for the majority of players. People want to compete and help eachother, play together and actually feel like we're part of a team - Being part of a team/a alliance is a large part of the reason why so many online games find as much success as they do. :p

    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Edit - For anyone interested this is what I wrote in the FB post:
    1. Implement some sort of battle system where we help eachother to defeat a large army of (Orcs/Undead/Brigands/Something else?) number of soldiers or a big boss based on the total Army Power of the Alliance.
    For example for the big alliances you could have a month where we have to kill 5.000.000 Orcs (sounds like a lot, but it's not really that much if we have a month to do it) and either play solo or team up as 1-4 players for every battle and get put against a bunch of Orcs. You could have ''commanders'' between the Orc's that are really hard to defeat (so you have to be a large amount of members to go aganst them) but give a large amount of points to the event or maybe a small reward to everyone in the alliance.
    This way the players would get to play together to achieve a common goal. (just a example, there's probably other/better ways to do it)
    There's ofc also the option of implementing some sort of Alliance vs Alliance battle system where we fight eachother, but I'm not sure how you would do that (or if it would be even be healthy for the game, since everyone would just want to be in a powerful alliance)
    2. The ability to donate/trade stuff (could just be shards, potions or items) between alliance members, to help out newer players (which will also create more of a bond between the members) or just to trade away the useless shards/potions for regiments you already have 5* on.
    3. Ability to read older messages from the chat.
    4. Having a place where the alliance leader can write rules/guidelines for the other members to see.
    5. Being able to add officers or a co-leader (whatever you wanna call it) so that you have more than one person that can answer requests and questions for the different time-zones.
    6. Online/offline mark for alliance members
    7. Let us open links from inside the chat.
    8.Enable the use of emojis for the chat.


    My main feedback is that right now WoA feels like a single player game with a chat in the corner. We want to play TOGETHER to achieve a common goal so that it actually feels like we're in a alliance, making the players interact more with eachother should be at the top of your priority list imo. :)
    Currently you could do everything (and more) that Alliances can do with Discord, Skype or any other any other chat program. :(

    I heard rumours about super Trut disappearing with one of the latest updates. Is this confirmed?

    Could the disappearance of super Trut be the explanation to why max spawn nowadays is only 199 trophies (and never 200, 201, 202, 203 as previously appeared for some players)???

    No. SuperTrut was taken away long before the 0.59 update. I was getting 200t spawns even after his demise. It is only since the 0.59 that I have stopped receiving anything above 199.

    Jesper obviously spawned 200t battles. 7×199 and 4×200 seems to fit his score at start. So seems still possible...

    Yes. I already had a 200 and a 201 this season. Last season finished with zero 200 or more. They are probably still making adjustments. Used to get 200 fairly often so I refuse to believe it is just random bad luck for an entire season.
