    An option for “No troop cards, no glory” wars

    Manifesto I’m not sure I see the distinction between pay2win and ‘pay if you want to win’ - surely those that pay for cards and chests are doing so to increase their chances of winning, ergo they want to win. I’d love to know if there are any alliances on the leaderboard that don’t pay2win in...

    An option for “No troop cards, no glory” wars

    I do agree as I suspect a number (the majority in fact) of warring alliances don’t care for this pay2win nonsense. That being said I think there are enough serious alliances out there that realise Glory is the only way to be recognised for war superiority (read: big wallets) I suspect a large...

    An option for “No troop cards, no glory” wars

    So Nexon has chosen to put all their eggs in the pay-2-win troop cards basket. That’s fine, I personally think it is the wrong way to go but it is what it is, and its never going change. If alliances want to buy their way onto the leaderboard with elephant stables and bazooka towers then good on...

    That was a good event!!

    The increased training times of troops, planes and tactics was great. Those decreased train times felt like the “right” amount of time to train those units - not so quick that it didnt matter if you lost a whole army but not the normal crazy retrain times where if you lose all 5 planes you just...

    the Rocket Arsenal!!

    I dont think you’re giving Nexon the credit they quite deserve Manifesto ..... They also: - Removed shooter cards from Marco polo’s troop chest because everyone was complaining how annoying it is to have them. - Allowed the top sandbagging alliances to keep doing it because other alliances...

    the Rocket Arsenal!!

    Completely agree. New content is fine, and as a business they will always do what they can to create revenue but they really are putting all their eggs in the “make defense so strong you have to buy troop cards” basket. How about a little bit of quality over quanity for the next release - fix...

    General’s activation cost....

    Touché! Gotta give Nexon credit, they are putting a lot of time and imagination into making paid for troop cards mandatory on attack! It’s such a shame they go all out on these new releases to add new content rather than just fix existing problems. The best update they could possibly do is no...

    General’s activation cost....

    Nexon’s reason for allowing generals to spawn on defense from a destroyed fort was ‘because players have put thousands, if not millions of oil into upgrading generals so it seems fair they get to use them’ Makes sense to me and I have no problem with generals spawning on defense. I feel though...

    carnival event

    Agree with the OP, this event is great. Given the usual price and time increase with CW upgrades it is a welcome event! nexon nerfed resource production after an event so it would be nice to think they might think about nerfing build costs and training times to encourage more game play. They...

    Current Flamethrower event: Does Nexon hate Global+ players?

    There does seem to be a decent correlation between posters who use phrases like “stop your whining” and a lack of ability to post about the topic at hand. I do agree with the OP. It’s seems odd that Nexon seems to penalise players the longer they stay in the game - the most obvious example for...

    Nothing new but Sandbagging is almost common practice.

    It’s a real shame. It’s widened the gap between the top pay2win sandbagging alliances and everyone else, which I suspect was the whole point - I think Nexon just do what alliances like Korea army tell them to do, they’re paying the bills afterall!

    Dominations-paying to win

    King Miller, it is a shame this game has gone the way it has and to a large degree you are right, although it doesnt have to be exactly the way you described. I’m in a top 100 alliance and we dont pay for a single card for wars - we have beaten a number of pay2win alliances through skill and...

    Tactical 31 - a top 100 alliance is looking for great attackers....

    We are an extremely active top 100 alliance - very chatty, good donators, happy to provide advice and support, war back to back. We are looking for high level players (200+) and rushed atomics to help us build on the great alliance we already have! If you are sick of always carrying your...

    Nothing new but Sandbagging is almost common practice.

    Only issue with that is that mid level alliances could complete because their rushed atomics could take out the opponents high level atomic bases. Now that those opposition atomics have crowned up to high level CWA bases, our rushed atomics are much less effective, and the lvl 220 CW cap means...

    Marco polo point????

    Agree, like several other aspects of the game, MP is no where near his potential​​​​​. Most chests are lame and the NTG trades being reduced to 3:1 are now pointless You should be able to trade any NTG for any other NTG at a ratio of 3:2 - perfect way to regulate NTGs and allow for the...

    Some clarity about troop chests

    Sorry the confusion, yes I was referring to both Marco Polo chests and purchased chests. I don’t get many of them because the reward rate for anything other than the worst items is so low it’s not usually worth it. However a few alliance members mentioned that they were pleasantly surprised by...

    Jedi Knights Hacking Cheaters

    If you search their alliance you’ll see that player is level 221. why his base is only showing level 205 in the war map screen is another question for Nexon altogether though!

    Some clarity about troop chests

    Ignoring people’s personal feelings about these troop chests and the odds of getting the decent payouts I’d like clarification on one thing if possible. It seems whenever I have multiple versions of the same chest where there are, say 10 possible reward types inside, I get exactly the same...

    This thread will be deleted, read till you can - it is about cheaters

    We recently warred with a top 100 alliance called UkraineinHeart who used that cheat with all 25 of their bases - their Iron Age bases had 2 tanks and 7 Howies come out of them. I PMd the mods (which they told me to do) over 2 weeks ago with screenshots but no response whatsoever and the...

    Cold War Update Mega Thread! Discuss here!

    I’m disappointed about the Cold War library updates to be honest. Industrial plastics and economic stimulus could have been rolled into one branch - having two whole branches to slightly boost your economy feels like the devs just ran out of ideas. Advanced ballistics is fine, a new unit needs...
