Now tell me how the game does not support whales? (Look at all the projects too)

Instead of a flat 1mil, most whales get 1mil or more, that is unraidable plus what they are already farming. Every none whale then gets below that. One cannot do much w/ $50,000 in game too. It is really gonna suck for those getting sent loans, grants, & aid when they get raided when in the middle of dealing w/ all that cash

Not sure why you are complaining. This change was widely agreed on and helps lower level raiders the most. In any case there is nothing wrong with this game supplying more content for older players(or supporting whales as you call it). After all this is literally a nation building game in which you are constantly trying to grow your nation lol.

I just would like to see the next big update be aimed for the smaller nations. Not much has been done to aid them besides certain projects, & some of this current small update.  Even w/ those project, you need more infra, money, & rss which most whales have.  

🤷‍♂️

The more I think of this the more it seems like the start of a communist revolution.

  • Complains about the rich getting richer
  • Complains about the poor not getting much
  • Demanding the poor get more (even though they did) 
  • Lead by a man with a fancy moustache

This update helps smaller nations far more, with low tier raiding being the best way to actually make money in the early game, reducing the unraidable cap for lower tier means that you can make more money off raiding. 

In the case of a whale, at the moment the person with the most cities (Wampus) gets an unraidable cap of 2.25m, this is practically pocket change in the higher tiers, it's in no way a massive buff to the whales, it's simply a far better adjustment.

Furthermore, projects focused on the lower tier are much harder to design as you would need it to become less viable as you tier up, and since people tend to reach mid/lower mid tier fairly quickly, those projects won't see much use and are wasted time that could be invested elsewhere in polishing out features, designing new ones etc.

Y'know, I've tried on two separate occasions to criticize the imagery and presentation of the "snore" page. I attempted to point out the obvious flaws with calling this most fundamental of mechanics (time progressing) a "problem" and "unusual", rather than as a perfectly normal process that deserves patience. I even presented the alternative idea of changing the wording and image to reflect a message of industry, energy, activity and progress, such as "please wait while your citizens work" or an animated .gif of gears turning.

First suggestion? Buried and lost in the suggestions subforum, almost page 3 by now. Well, that's what I get for titling it "cosmetic" I suppose.

Second time, I was able to communicate this to Alex directly... and his response? "Snore page has been reduced to 65 seconds though".

....my concerns have nothing to do with the timing but rather the presentation. And my clarification has remained unread 😢

Meanwhile, I just checked to be sure, and yep: Snore page still apologizes for "heavy load". Bleaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh

I mean, it's understandable that Alex is a busy person and listening to all of the everyone talking at him is a completely unreasonable ask, but please acknowledge that rather than just declare that everyone's suggestions are listened to 😕

 

UPDATE: Alex just replied to me and he agrees the improvements would be good :D

Ok he listened :D
