    Well unfortunately I didnt have a chance last year to get a MMA and few other stuff nor I have old eggs in storehouse that I would be able to buy them this year. At this point its insane to trade for old eggs as the prices are going through the roof.
    Well, then if I look at the new general... haha its probably a joke... around 5k eggs for a bhg/grim/big helmet with different graphics and few new skills. How much damage does he make? 25-50? a normal makes 120dmg afaik. For what should this general be good for? For transferring troops? lol I have 2 quatermaster I dont need another fast general with with 50dmg if he cant event make a sure kill on tailors without sending few more units with him. And then again why only 200 units? For 5k eggs... good joke BB, each event it gets better

    I then feel sorry for ppl in my guild which wont be able to get a veteran (as he is pretty much needed) or MMA.No way they will be able to afford to buy old eggs. And fact is although we have many high lvl players which are playing for longer than one year we wont be able to help everyone to get the specialist from old shop.

    I'd suggest making a PH option to convert new eggs to old eggs maybe, which would ease getting the old stuff for new players.

    I do agree on having new eggs so ppl wont hoard on them after the event for next year, but then telling us this like 1 month before its a shame. Or just make the old shop available this year for new eggs. Veteran and MMA and also The Scout are way better than any Marshall and Legendary Veteran... Guess this year it will be a legendary fail.
    Maybe game design should also point out why this new general is better and more expensive than Veteran and MMA? To clear things out... I guess they know what they are doing... or was this just a fact we need a new general and because last year we got MMA with more dmg this year we need one with more HP...

    Well, have a nice day!

    Well first, I'm not here to defend BB and I dislike the sudden change as ie. it's unfair to new players who had their hopes that event pattern would repeat itself. I'm here to comment some possible reasons for these as some people don't seem to understand financial things and some suggestion here would negate the things BB is trying to achieve. These changes are probably a business decision to improve gem sales as it's possible there is a new management in the town and demanding more for 2015. Business decisions are never really announced in public or spoken of, they just happen.

    Now how many of you have heard the following line in global, help or guild chat: "don't use gems on vet or mma, wait for the event"? I'm pretty sure many of you have and I have been saying it myself too in these chats. This predictability has led to reduced sales for sure as players would know how long for to wait and during the wait pile up resources for the event trading or even gather event resource (eggs etc). It's possible that we will never see the old veteran or mma in events again OR they change their item distribution so that some event rewards are shuffled between events or some only appear biyearly. This would reduce the predictability and thus improve sales.

    Then about having 2 different shops and event currencies. If they would add some kind of conversion from new to old it would then again negate the whole idea/need of 2 shops even with different conversion rates. They also can't remove the old shop items completely until after this event because they still must allow people with (gem bought) old eggs to buy items because they did not announce this change last year. The 2 shop system is probably only available there for this transition time. For not being able to buy the old eggs with gems might have some purpose too like to prevent any kind of extra trading with old eggs. They just want to get rid of them and not allow anyone to get any extra gain from it.

    It's possible that with all the noise caused by these changes they might revert something but if the thing is set in stone by team leaders there is no change no matter how much people cry about this. I presume these shop/item transitions will happen for all future events from now until all events have only new items and destroyed-after-event-resource.

    Hi Mannerheim,
    Some people can't afford to buy gems. Events used to be a great way, for those players, to gain a general that would greatly help them to improve their gameplay. In my opinion that should stay in the game and is/was, what i think, a great part of this game.
    The mma is great, but a vet is basic need. Only 1 vet can mean a huge difference already.
    It will keep the game interesting for that group of players

    Have you looked at TO recently ?
    Extra gain indeed

    Yes I know that not everyone can buy gems or even login daily for the free gems. However currently it's been easy for everyone to know when they can buy the generals without gems, this includes gem buyers also. Anyways it's still not know if the generals are gone for good or switching places or time. BB wouldn't tell it to anyone either cause it would defeat the purpose. It's the same thing as with gem sales. No one would buy gems without a happy hour if they would knew when the sale would happen each month. Now it's random and practically requires you to follow the news daily to catch one.

    Yes I know people with old eggs are having time of their lives with the trades but adding the old eggs available for gems would just allow more people to mess the economy and gem sales even more. Let's imagine you are a gem buyer and wanted to have a one x building and one y building that are both available for gems but too expensive in the trade as resources or rare to find. Event begins and you know there are hundreds of desperate people after generals and stuff. With the gem cost of a single x or y building you can now instead use the gems to buy old eggs and then rip-off people and have 2-5 x buildings and 2-5 y buildings. With your 10 eur gem purchase you now got items worth of 50 eur in gem buildings and won't need to another investment for a long time.

    They can't really block trading of existing eggs cause of various things but they can surely limit the damage by not letting more egg's get in the server economy.

    I wasn't playing last year and so don't have any old eggs to use, so clearly this isn't as frustrating for me as others. It does seem reasonable to be able to make new eggs from old - some kind of receipe in the rariety provision house maybe?. That way those with the old eggs have another way to benefit from them and their efforts to save them from last year not as minimized.
    Makes me worry about my pumpkins and presents...
    Sorry, but I've slept since then...

    Everyone seems to be forgetting that the new general is still an extremely good investment.
    A) It can be obtained for free
    B) It travels faster than a normal Tavern bought General
    c) It recovers faster than a Tavern bought General
    D) It makes an excellent loot spot general due to its first strike ability.
    E) Re-read point A.


    So stop whinging and if you want a MoMA then go invest in some gems and support the game makers.


    Otherwise accept that you are a free to play player and don't have the same ability to get everything that a paying player does. And if that isn't an acceptable answer then I suggest you consider your long term aspirations to stay in the game as its obvious over the last 18 months that BB has been pushing the pay to play aspect.

    I was corrected by someone else on test about that - it's not first strike, apparently...

    The problem with it is the misleading name. The game makers brought this on themselves

    Are you a casual or part-time player? Don't want a chatty guild or expect lots of support?
    And do you want the chance to earn a few guild coins but don't want to be forced to do guild quests on a daily basis?

    Then join GQS (Guild Quests (STILL!) Suck) on Northisle!
    Mail Gerontius here or in game for an invite.

    Level 6 iron smelters are definitely needed for expeditions - nice move.
