would like to note that even though I didn't play in TT2 right from the
start (or TT gold) nevertheless i have been playing for a long time,
this game perfectly takes time, but is not required to play
continuously. There were good moments and bad. But this stuff, I
actually wanted to talk about the relatively recent change, about the
As you know the game gives you 5 months or more precisely
150 days to reach one of the victories (we know it from Patch Notes, but
new players will learn that their city was destroyed only 30 days like)
Well then, the country is POOF (as were the wipes before but now for one player) or u end game by one of the victories. OK? Yes,
this is a good idea of motivation, not everyone liked it, but it is
necessary to change something in the game sometimes. Plus motivation for
donation was added, POI, and other stuff BUT I do not know what guided
this decision, but the result was not very good. I will not go into a
long introduction. Let's just say, since the game Free to Play it should
be based on a free game with the ability to play without attachments.
Of course, anyone can accelerate an action due to these donations, but u
must have a chance playing in game without it. TT2 have it? I doubt it.
point is, I started the game with the idea of playing as a casual
player without a donation. I wanted to check whether I reach last age
and the opportunity to finish the game with a victory. annnnd answer no. I'm playing in great alliance, with lots of friends and many goodes from their (when they are donation) but i
could not even reach the beginning of the information age. Yes, you can
say that there are players who have done it, play without donation and
everything is fine. But how many of them? 5? 10? Is there any point in
focusing on them or maybe think about many and many other players who do
not donate much and play even less than me?
u can donation and will take it easy, or end game early by to reach one
of the victories, but if u want end tree of science u must pay or tryhard.
And then there is a desire not to create a new hero and start over, but
just to take a break, to leave the game, let and for a while. It is
good? i think not for u, developers. let us think that something needs to be changed more. ask players, listen carefully. i can give advice to change the conditions for the appearance of the apocalypse. not 150 days for everyone, but situationally.
Even if it is 150 days, keep in mind that if a player has not reached
at least the industrial age, then the apocalypse does not start until
the player starts researching this or that science in industrial age.
to play a lot, restrict players or point where the game does not come
without a good donation, u will lose many of good players.
Thank you for attention.
