Hey Dev’s, these are some small and easy to implement but really much needed improvements that will surely make our gaming experience better.
1 - The sound effect that plays at the begging and during each battle as the troop stats are increased due to team bonuses or traits has got to GO! First, its played simultaneously more than 20x at the start of each battle which makes it way louder than anything else in the game (super annoying) and it’s just a mess because its duplicated so many times at higher levels when all troops are traited up. Then it plays at least once at the start of every turn. Please just get rid of it, the visual indication when stat icons grow bigger for a second is more than enough.
2 - Speaking of annoying sounds, the Mana Surge and Extra Turn voice gets really repetitive and super annoying too. Any sound effect you hear more than 20 times during a 2 minute battle is just irritating and not helpful. We already have the visual indication of extra turn via arrow up and you can just make the mana icon glow or blink for a second instead of saying Surge. At high lvl and with guild bonuses, this happens so often that he starts to say Mana Surge again before the first time has finished, I just heard it 7x in a span of 4 seconds, true story, I counted its ridiculous.
3 - The background image on the treasure hunt mini-game also needs another change. Patch-notes from a few months ago said you improved the contrast, I think you need another crack at it, as it is still really hard to look at for any length of time. Simply get rid of the see through squares completely so we have gray and black squares and it will be easy on the eyes.
4 - A Return to Home Screen button addition to all windows would be nice. Having to close multiple screens to return to world map is really annoying, especially since you guys put those buttons on opposite sides of the screen in different windows. Close window is top-right and go back one is top-left, then back to top right, this is just unnecessary.
5 - A quick cast button added to the unit portrait would be a great addition too. As soon as attack is available and the unit pic changes to spell pic, we should just have a small cast button appear on the spell pic itself or down between the unit stats, instead of having to open spell description and then hit the cast button in the middle of the screen. Small thing but very welcome to those with Carpal Tunnel and speed freaks like me who grind a lot for the guild.
So there, just a few small suggestions to make our sessions more enjoyable and less tedious, additional comments welcome here, lets make the game even more fun!
