Game of War – Post Ctesse Age – Changes

Game of War Post Emperor Age

The originating Emperor of the Super Wonder snub and player stance has called it quits.

Is she simply calling the bluff of all the haters who blamed them for all the problems in Game of War?

With Ctesse quitting, will we see a new, slower direction for Game of War?

In the comments by players in just this posts it appears that content release pace is the most serious issue in the game.

Friends playing other games express glee that they’ve experienced zero new content releases in the six weeks they’ve played that that new title.

In Game of War, players complain that new releases are dropped to cater to the most powerful, biggest spenders. However, even those players tire of the constant need to update their accounts.

Love her or hate her, Emperor Ctesse touched many lives over the years. I recall many of my alliance mates begging her to hit them. You could always count on Ctesse being the hardest hitting account in Game of War.

Ctesse receives the Game of War Michelin Star for bravery and love.

Whether you loved her or hated her, she will be missed.

How to Improve Game of War Fire Age?

Lately, Game of War Fire Age has become Game of Protest.  The protest is so strong the most popular and arguably the biggest investor in Game of War Fire Age has quit.

It seems the player community has had enough of the constant content drops and the requirement to upgrade their account twice a day to remain relevant.

The drop schedule has reached every 12 hours. This gives players just enough time to log in an attempt to collect mega gifts, which is also a broken system, upgrade to the new release and maybe get a couple hours to use it before they have to log out and sleep only to be presented with a new drop when they wake up.

Recently, alliance leaders asked their mates to drop tags before purchasing unlimited packs because the gifts created incredible lag.

The gifts are worthless to most anyway. So what needs changed in Game of War?

Players Taking a Stance By Sitting this Super Wonder Out

Gameofwartips.com has always been for the players. It’s great to see players taking a stance in an effort to gain the attention of the creators of the game.

Besides, they are the real shareholders of Game of War. The creators ought to listen to their suggestions to make the game a more appealing investment for their entertainment dollars.

Game of War today is the 26th top grossing mobile app on iOS. It narrowly edges out Episode ft. Pitch Perfect™ Compare this to previous years when Game of War held held the top 5 position. It’s clear the ship is sinking or has already sank.

How Do We Save Game of War?

I’ve asked many players over the years. This isn’t the first time players have taken to the nets in protest over the game’s direction.

In September 2015, Gameofwartips.com reported in a blog titled “Houston We Have a Problem”, Emperor Stayalive77 attempted changes to Game of War. The creators listened and released a blog post in response.

Player Suggestions

Software Issues

The biggest thing that I feel is needed is the ability to defend attacks, it is extremely difficult to defend a solo, let alone a rally and forget about a mega rally.

Too many software issue remain and lag is ridiculous. They have completely forgotten things link the alliance store, city rallies, black market and the market inside alliance cities.

They are never updated with new items ad the amount of copper per day is way too low.these are just the tip of the iceberg as for what needs to change, updates should be every 3 to 4 months, not 3 to 4 hours.

Content Release Pace

Mz, should change model that they operate back to volume based monthly releases and decent quality as they had in beta.

Additionally Mz needs to get strategy and adventure back in game. It is all about research. No cores.

Make the game affordable and if Mz release new monthly, provide options for people to buy or attain it by being logged in game.

Don’t create release items for one time use.  Like casino is there now it still reflect times 4 months before black market, what is use?  Bring back the old style kill and Super Wonder events.  These 2 hrs events make no sense, neither interesting.

Stop these routine of buildings, then special buildings, then gear then banner, then, hero then back again same routine. It makes no sense. We are tired.

Game of War has no strategy, no adventure, it is boring.

Make a change now before more people quit.

Content Release Schedule and Latency issues

I am Lucy Law, even though I’m not a rally lead, us fillers are relied upon greatly.

These constant upgrades and lag makes it impossible to keep up. I’ve been playing for many years and the people you meet on game really keep you there.

Regardless of all the issues we are having, Mz needs to start listening to us all, get this fixed. Slow down with the upgrades, bring back strategies! Stop the banners, gear upgrades etc… The list goes on. We want to enjoy it!

Pace of Content Releases and Costs

This is Ladi! I appreciate all the attention that this has given and the time it took to compile these views must have been extensive, thank you for speaking out on behalf of us and taking our concerns where it will be heard.

One thing I do appreciate about Game of War is the $20 packs.

More affordable for mothers with large families who enjoy getting away in a game.

But having to buy $20 pack one after the other within same week makes that impossible to remain affordable in order to play as you want.

Content release pace and strategy

There is so much that I agree with here.

One thing that I would say is that there have been so many large rally leaders and fillers that have quit playing because of the constant game updates.

No one can even keep up unless you are related to Rockefeller. The $20 packs have helped. There used to be updates about once a month which would allow everyone to form strategy and compete, rally and just have fun.

I agree that if you don’t spend a lot of money you just won’t be relevant as someone else talked about.

If MZ would slow down the updates and simply allow players to play, form strategy, and rally other alliances again, they just might see several of those big players return and move this game back into the top 10 game apps.

The ball is in their court. Let’s sit back for a bit and see what their response is. Either they want to see this game rise again or watch this great game (use to be) continue to sink. Your play MZ.

  4. I always like reading stuff like this… it goes to show that there are people who are oblivious to whats going on around them; like the comment before me saying “Make a change now before people quit” – and even the author writing like this has been a viable and legitimate game since Sept. 2015 and it can be saved or turned around…

    Um, NEWS FLASH – People have quit in droves and if you have not noticed that you can’t be helped and deserve being taken for the suckers you are. MZ products are Pay 2B Loser scams… all of them… just prior to Sept. 2015 MZ made a fundamental business decision – design and maintain legitimate long lasting games like Game of War started out being, or becoe a smoke and mirrors sweatshop and run scams… they chose to run the scams and have produced 2 more since that time that are identically operated and are in exactly the same condition – populated only by stupid people who don’t recognize they are being scammed.

    Go Fools, Go – MZ loves the sucker.

    P.S. – Word is MZ shuts down at least 2 of the 3 scams by years end with the 3rd and newest being in jeopardy because it was recently removed from the ratings charts on the iOS platform. They are trying to get as many of the remaining fools in GoW and MS to quit as they can to reduce their legal exposure. They even resorted to pulling the old StayAlive77 trick out of the bag, and had Ctesse (the MZ investor group) publicly announce she was quitting… Eye, Yeye, Yeye…
