XP Cap of 30 per battle

Still no Cap removal - still no HoF reset, but we had the nearest thing to admission that GaS dont understand their own game with the recent "Battle Fatigue" memo I look forwards to one of the following happening: 1) Removal of the CAP 2) Reset of the HoF 3) Justification of why HW think the CAP is a good idea But I won't be holding my breath!!!!

Cross world sitting

They have the time to develop but not test the update that was perpetrated recently, complete with all the functions that nobody actually wanted and don't actually work anyway, but they cant find the time for changes that paying customers actually want, that would improve the game - to me that tells me a great deal about the attitude of the developers of HW

The Update discussion thread

Firstly DON'T blame "server loading" for badly tested code - in over 20 years in professional IT server loading issues DO NOT cause the types of problems we have all experienced, making pathetic excuses like that just makes you look even less competent Remove the 30XP per battle limit OR come clean and admit you want to prevent people getting to high levels because you cant be bothered to develop new kit, no one has ever asked fro this! Remove the limit to the number of characters per battle, wh...

Extra Order Gold

Quoted from "itsjustme" Don't matter, as a matter of fact, the more ridiculous it seems, the more likely it will be implemented On that basis, can we have free fruit from some cities please.... there is a chronic lack of soft fruit in HW

XP Cap of 30 per battle

Why has this been introduced? Perhaps GAS will dispel the belief that its simply to avoid them having to create higher level gear The effect of this limit will hurt the lower level players so its impact on limiting higher level XP will be minimal and only act to hinder lower levels catching up Yet another bad idea from GAS, when the player base has been asking for upgrades in certain areas (stables etc) GAS ignore those calls just carry on regardless

Minimum Price for Elixirs needs reducing

Quoted from "Forge" Quoted from "Croaker" GaS dumped that update on us and then went on holidays? To be fair, they were doing a lot of work on it right till they left, and I'm sure they'll be back on it as soon as they're back in, but I'll fully agree that the timing wasn't good, and maybe this patch should have happened now (January), when everyone is here, instead of straddling a major international work holiday. GAS meet Change Control, Change Control meet GAS - I know you two are total stra...

Minimum Price for Elixirs needs reducing

Thanks Forge.. As far as I am concerned its not a question or manipulation or anything underhand at all, the problem is that the cumulative effects of Merchant Discounts is having a disastrous impact on the Lix Stall and that will in time make it virtually impossible for anyone to sell enough pots for a new horse etc - leading to even more pee'd off players who quit HW What needs to be fed back to HW is that players who have been on HW for years are telling them this facet of the update is a gam...

Minimum Price for Elixirs needs reducing

The constant moaning at CWR wont change a thing, it seems to me there are two realistic options: 1) Direct your anger at GAS and force them to change the market discount mechanism 2) Attack CWR and take one or more of the merchant discount cities off us Whoever it is thats dumping lixs at min (and I would expect it to me a MIX or people, some may be from CWR but there are almost certainly others too) is NOT breaking the rules, they are NOT cheating, they are NOT Abusing a lop hole, they have sim...

Minimum Price for Elixirs needs reducing

All that needs to be done is make the market bonus apply only to the blacksmiths and the stables - that would cure this problem in a heartbeat Whether members or CWR are or are not flooding the market I don't know but what is happening is a SYMPTOM of the badly thought out city bonus's and indicative of inadequate testing (especially scenario based testing) - so getting mad at CWR (if it is us) is simply shooting the messenger! Fix the problem!!!

Minimum Price for Elixirs needs reducing

With the perks that cities captured give, it is now very possible to be able to buy Lix's from the shop cheaper than the minimum possible to sell them on the market This might seem like a minor issue, but it will have a big impact in the future, when players come to sell stockpiled Lix's to but a weapon/horse etc they will find it very difficult to sell them is its cheaper to go to the shop Players will find this prevents them upgrading kit/horse and provide yet another reason to give up the gam...

Persistent testing world with periodic player/order wipes

The idea clearly collapses when it comes to GAS's utter indifference to the players wishes and complaints - they use Mods as a buffer to avoid having to face their customers They are fast enough to make statements regarding (yet another) premium tix offer, where is the apology for the utter disaster that has been foisted on us this time?

More issues Hired as a merc for a city battle, went to camp about 40 mins before battle - SAW the camp lists - noticed there were no "In Camp" signs on players I knew were already in camp The next thing I know I am back at my normal attack screen BEFORE the battle has started - cant rejoin nothing so did not fight - how can it reject players from a battle they are registered for? So many bugs in this release if it has been tested and I was GAS I would be looking at disciplinary action for those ...

Introduction of Stat/level Ratio

3 pack premium ticket plus 3D gaming

Quoted from "djshorty1979" where you can actually health back up whilst in battle as it will 1: help players advance farther with xp when they need it and also stop them from being bored just sitting and waiting for a battle to finish ie: the holy battle or 2: give them so kind of mini game to play whilst waiting for a battle to end? what do you all think ? need suggestions This idea should be taken out, shot, strangled, burnt then buried at sea!

Levelling the maga-tixer field a little.....

To give the vast bulk of players a wee bit more of a fairer games (compared to the few Mega-tixers) GaS could implement a code modification where the player looses a unique weapon if he is killed in battle (much the same way as he looses it if he looses a single combat) Uniques lost in battle would return to the pool to be found by someone plundering as normal

A better long-term model for HW:

We have to face it, the way GaS has promoted and encouraged the use of Tix in HW has in many ways eliminated the competative edge from the game We have battle healing - that emininated to huge disadvatage of loosing a battle We have full healing after 8 hr work - that eliminated the point of pre-strikes We have frequent Tix promotions - that negated hard work We have massively increased Tix Gold value - this made high level Tix more viable I could draw a parallel to a hugely popular village base...

In the usual HWT "Mushroom Management" style of customer relations, we keep on getting vague promises to a merger of worlds, of course there is never anything substantial said, but now we have a second international world in addition to Tix promotions that seem to arrive every 10 minutes So am I right in drawing the conclusion that HWT will never actual merge worlds, that they will just continue to open new international worlds to attract tixers or are we going to be given and substantial inform...

Promotions that everyone can enjoy (not just tixxers)

How about things that you find during randomly plunders, say one of each item is added to the world each week (Quite deliberately giving premium players an advantage - after all it is a commercial game), once used they evaporate like: Bottle of Firewater : When drunk its effects last for 6hrs and double the XP obtained during fights (I want one for HB!) Dancing Shoes - When put on its effects last for 6hrs and inrease the players agility by 5% Sharpening Stone - When used it increases weapon hit...

Another idea to make things interesting.

dont see an issue with that, as long as the "stand guard" option was capable of being permanently set, but a "assist defence against the first attack" would work, though clearly it could be undermined by use of a suicide attack follwed by the "real" attack

Bonus Doubler

Quoted from "akash595" Yes, we do have enough problems with tixxers, however if this is used effectively then can help those who cannot spend as much money in the game get more of a chance. So all you do is create a band of mini tixers who want to tix but cant aford too shakes head sadly

HW Game Mechanics - What annoys you most

What annoys me most........ 1) Tixing for gold or XP, I accept that its a financial earner, but how about showing to the world on thier profile how many tix have been converted to gold/extra plunders so at least they cant claim "I was lucky in the Tavern" 2) Not having a cross world market, even if it were just for Lix's - come on HW that cant be too hard a tweak and it would give dying worlds a boost 3) Not being able to look in the "shop windows" whilst I am at work (fairy nuff I cant buy, but...

This Is Needed

As a Tixer free world would loose GAS revenue, why not create a world - open to all nationalities - disable, tixing for gold or extra plunders, and charge a tix every two weeks (rather than four weeks) - that would make good (at least some) of the revenue lost from Tixers
