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.

ctesse game of war

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 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, 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.

Do you have a recommendation or an opinion on game direction for the creators of Game of War? Let us know in the comments below.

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.

Game of War Story #2: Kuran and CoPoTo Super Wonderboys!

Super Wonder Past and Present

This is a look at the past and present Super Wonders of December. With news of ONE snubbing this month’s Super Wonder (more below) and the community reaction, I thought it’d be interesting to look at past champions of the Super Wonder.

The following Game of War story is from December 29, 2014. Emperors Kuran and CoPoTo pushed the limits of Game of War.

Legend holds that Emperor Kuran discovered the “missile or bullet” attack strategy. He was one of the first to use a single troop type to attack his enemies. 

He made great use of Relics and Cores to maximize the attack of one troop type. The end goal is to kill more of the counter troops than you lose. It worked!


Super Wonder – Kuran and CoPoto December 2014

Kuran and CoPoTo are at it again. CoPoTo weighing in this time at an impressive 21 billion power and boasting an alliance power number of 134 Billion you have to ask yourself “Will there ever be a new Emperor?” Who will challenge the Kuran CoPoTo Order? Is this what MZ had in mind when they created the Super Wonder?



Super Wonder Instagram

You can follow Kuran on Instagram @xxkuranxx. Watch as he and his compatriots destroy billionaires!

Who will challenge the emperor? What sleeping giant and his ferocious friends are poised to take over the Super Wonder? Is there no one?

An example of what you will see @xxkuranxx.


What will he come up with next? Mz, hire this kid as a developer consultant.

Super Wonder December 2017 – ONE Will Not Defend Throne

Good luck to all those who participate in this weekend’s Super Wonder.

It appears the defending champions will skip this event in protest of recent developments in Game of War.

From Ctesse Instagram:

MZ lunacy

Here we go again …

MZ go from draws to one hit zeroes on huge players using solos.

Is MZ trying to drive players out of the game ?

Another ridiculous upgrade with massive players everywhere getting one shot zeroed from a solo.

We are taking a stand at ONE and instead of just talking about it , we are acting on it, by snubbing their SW event .

We are asking players to put their complaints into action.

Stop whining and act on it!

When they see their biggest money event where no one is interested…

maybe …

just maybe …

they will know we can stand united and we are serious about our rights and their obligations to the gaming community .

Super Wonder Ctesse snubsw







What do the other teams hoping to challenge ONE think of this move?

One player likens it to modern American politics in this humorous response:

They’ve won like 4 events in a row due to <filth> ups so they’d like the “recognition” of their absence from this event so that if they lose they can claim absence.

Last event we won. We did. But MZ took away our 1hr lead creating only minutes between our emperor and ONEs.

In that light, ONE is announcing their absence in case MZ gives a fair fight this round. They are doing this to save face incase they lose.

If they truly cared and were actually concerned with game they would have joined in boycott or organized one prior to all of Tess accounts with title.

Clearly they didn’t care too much when we were all participating. But now that we are fighting daily they want to say this to save rep if they lose and to downplay our victory if they win.

Honestly, Ctesse IG posts are in same category to Trumps tweets in my view.

Every day it’s something else all designed to save face and distract.

Tesse claiming the fight for the peeps and to change things when it’s known that she has collaborated with MZ on many of current in game features.

How can she be for peeps when she helped to build the current game design? It’s smoke and mirrors.

The fact that she’s calling for new game platforms to transition speaks clearly that she is not for the peeps.

Why be for the peeps then ask for new game to move to that they will then need to spend more money on? That’s not for them… that you ask them to continue to spend money and follow your conquest of the app market platform.

That’s not for peeps, that’s for herself to continue slaying with a following.

Could just as easily be for the peeps, cancel ALL gaming and not seek new game. And instead use sum of 3 months of her high level spending while for each of those 3 months sponsoring 8-12 people to fly out to visit for a weekend hangout…

Literally.. her spending would sponsor ONE team meeting. If truly for peeps, and only cared about the people of her team she would be more inclined and DRIVEN to meet them. Not simply drag them to a new game.

If she drags anyone to a new game their first thought should be, Why this game?

How could Tesse be connected with these new developers for personal influence. If she goes to a new game I’d suspect MZ connects as well to market more activity on that game.

Ultimately. I think we will see ONE at the event. Their level of participation will be that of their current ability to win the event. Last time as I said, they won literally due to MZ’s interference much like Russia’s in the election.

Super Wonder Prelims TessWill ONE defend after all? We will see tonight December 1st at 8 PM PST and December 2nd at 04:00 UTC!
