Gems of War was a nice game till the contrast between players was inexistant.
The max contrast you could see, were people competing for the top position of the week.
And it was just a contrast of “activity”. You would try to play more than others, without
even touching them.
Now the Guild War has added a new aspect to the game. There is a direct confrontation
between players, and a loss will be a loss, you will be paying for it personally and permanently (at least for the week), and with the Normal PvP who would care for a loss, u could just keep playing and forget it.
Now instead a lost battle is something to think about it. THink about counter decks,
try different banners, do the AD HOC deck vs single players.
I lost 3 hours yesterday on Guild War, lost another 3 hrs of my life today.
Card Imbalances are exacerbated now, and will heavily weight themselves
over the community.
DEVS: you could keep imbalanced cards till you had not direct confrontations with players, but now, the new system u created, won’t allow it anymore.
You need to work the whole set of cards, and try to not balance it with your feets.
Because now every your frivolousness and overwhelming lightness in balancing cards,
will have a direct and harmful input vs your own players.
On top of that, the AI couldn’t keep up with players, so u made it able to CHEAT against your own
players, altering dramatically the % of landing Skills/traits, and the % of generating
mana she would need.
The new ****Storm abilities are showing to the gow community that you already had it implemented hiddenly to make the AI unfairly stronger to overcome the gap with Humans.
Now, if i play i game, i like to be competitive. I tried my best in the last months,
made new personal records, worked on decks, ideas.
But now, i can’t stand it anymore.
Guild War is probably a good feature, a too good feature that i won’t avoid to play,
as it will be the center of Guild activity.
IT TAKES TOO MUCH TIME. Gems of War used to be a casual game.
Now it evolved to something it isn’t ready yet to be.
Personally, i will wait a couple of weeks. But i can’t stand playing so much everyday,
so this will inevitably lead me to say goodbye to GoW for good.
Forgive for me -Venting Out-, but i did really need it, as in time i grew fond of this game.
