I am starting to wonder if anyone plays anymore. For a few days now both my former alliance and friend list shows nobody online. So either I have managed to get on a butt ton of ignore lists or something is wrong.
Not to be a total naysayer, but the dev team may want to put their noses to the grind stone and fix whatever it is that seems to have turned away so many players.
I have been reviewing older posts from years ago and it has inspired me to run one of my city slots with minimal elite units in the hopes of getting the old feel of the game back. I believe the departure from that old army vs army (vice army melted by wizards/dragons) may be the root of a potentially failing customer base.
Ultimately I just don't want to see a game that I am enjoying die due to over ambition with expansions. For example, navies. There is a city sitting in the sea with no means to reach it, yet we have wizards which have split the player base as far as opinion goes. Then again what purpose would a navy serve when only one city is untouchable without one? Maybe just take that particular load screen out of the rotation.
Anyone else seeing fewer people or is it that my main army is too strong to find a coop. 2197 before you ask.
