My opinion , 3 months period is pretty long, it was better whan you change every month.
More fun.

Yes, 3 month events are definitely too long. Please rethink this. Players don’t like it.

please make this only a month.( need a cooldown from it all)

the extra army for expidition would be good... if not for the citizen drain (they too valuable).

but the temple of tikal 660% increase is just funny bumping it up from 3% resource refund to 22%... making it from the worse gunpowder wonder to... needs improvement (cause the storehouse capacity is still useless)

@Harlems369th I think defensive and offensive bonuses should not apply to special buildings, like bazooka sentries etc. until the external server has been closed. Having the ability to add unlimited buildings is an injustice to fair playing alliances and players.

Totally agree.
We know that the Bazooka Sentry is for sale in the VIP store, that there were chances of obtaining them in the Conqueror's Chest (WW) and that it also appeared just over a month ago in one of the "Episode 2" events, but this does not justify the number of them on different bases of some alliances.
What justifies the huge amount on display of these constructions are illegal means, whether through the server, bugs or hacks to obtain crowns (which makes it possible to purchase them in the VIP store).
Therefore, benefiting from this construction would be to reinforce players who have abused the most diverse types of cheating available.

And unfortunately for those who have constantly encountered cheating situations, nothing else matters in this game until the game is fixed. I have always tried to provide feedback on the events and all the changes, but now I only have eyes for the disaster created due to cheaters and BHG's ineffectiveness.

Special buildings that are already OP and we all know it, shouldn't become the target of extra buff cause this creates a huge imbalance. I thought that BHG wanted to find the sweet spot between O and D

just my 2 cents

Hi oddin, I can’t agree with you. Are mortars OP? Were fighters OP during the last event with the boost? Was Recon OP during events which boosted them? How about that recent Attack helicopter boost? My point is many offense weapons are also boosted during these events. Besides, I think saying a bazooka sentry boost will cause an imbalance is an exaggeration.

My primary complaint about these events is the new duration. 3 months is absolutely positivity to long. I suspect maybe BHG is short handed as far as staff and they don’t have the manpower to continue one month events. So 3 month events work on autopilot.The problem is, most players I’ve spoken to hate the 3 month duration.

As for the coming Age upgrades, I sure hope BHG put some work into it this time. The Drone age update was embarrassing, boring and showed BHG worked very little on it, except for the new Drones, but even that was very late. Players want some new wonders, new troop types, new defensive structures and so on. Drone Age update was mostly nothing more then more upgrades. They could have rolled those upgrades in a regular update. I will say, the graphics staff has done a great job all along.

Drone age is incomplete in so many things... Let's not analyze that here+now

I am a defender and a striker. This means I have a more all around experience from the game and I can understand both worlds... Offence and Defence! So, when I see a base with Zook sentry or tower, I instantly fear to attack it and I know it will be a tough one. Now, imagine how it feels when you know it is boosted...

Yeah the last season fighters were very strong but you had to be a good attacker to kill a good defender with filipinos coalition and some antifighter hp. Not everyone could do it.

But being a defender and having a buffed zook sentry can potentially lead to an untouchable base and thus an imbalance.

And so....
Without missing the main point of criticism of the boost of this construction.
The biggest problem is not actually BHG improving it, but rather the fact that several players are obtaining this construction illegally. It's not fair to those who actually need luck to get it for free from chests or events or pay for something that cheaters are getting for free.
It's as if BHG said: "if you play fair and want to be competitive against cheating alliances, buy our towers in our amazing offers so you don't get left behind."

Although BHG's new golden eggs goose is council card sales.

Once again, my appeal as a player and customer who loves this game... Put an end to cheating and punish cheaters. We are sure that you receive many tickets of suspected cheating against the same alliances and accounts. Why are these accounts still active? Not to work on problem solving and eliminating cheaters at the same time? Where is the customer service?

Fear Not, BHG are great at finding solutions to problems they created. I've no doubt there'll be special offers and specific sales in due course to maximise demand for their inevitable supply. 😁

If we want a fair game I would suggest to exclude special buildings as well as TT’s from getting buffs during events. Not everyone can use 3 special buildings, 3 tups, recons etc. in every war. For years the same players and alliances always had the maximum number of special buildings in every war … some do spend … but not all! Having a balanced game is a bit tricky because the gap is to big on who can afford the best TT’s or special buildings every war.
