I dont like the sound of a few things on there level 10 training..... levelling is the best part.i have spent 3-4 weeks levelling my army now someone can pay to get the same lvl with gold..
You may aswell spawn them at lvl 10.
I do like the fixed stuff tho, gj
I wish...my best guess is Monday, we just added a lot more awesome stuff today, and few more things we want to squeeze in - a lot of chat improvements and updates e.t.c. So time well spent
That is a very big change,
Lvl 10 training and lvl 60 for heros? i can see alot of 6 lvl 60 royal dragon armys on the way.
I love this game for the grinding of an army level and now people can have top level hero,s in an instant and mid level troops.
Dunno possible bad move in my eyes..
