Just found out that a huge chunk of my money was used (by a family member) for this game 2021 and I reached out but no refunds have been offered (and the purchases are made obviously aren’t permanent can’t even find it in my bank logs)
NetEase has announced their intention to implement a new version of the game which is entirely different from the game the community of players has spent money and time on over the last year. Commanders and gear obtained will be wildly different in the new game, and mechanics will be completely changed. They are ignoring the outcry of their community and moving forward with the change anyways. This is a huge breach of trust, and doubtless will not be the last time this happens.
I have had this game for a loooong time. It really is what they say it is!! I really recommend it and if you like everything that’s in the video, this is the game for you!!!
It’s a great game….really love everything about it except that if you don’t play 24 hours a day, other players will get strong fast and take your surrounding resources before you even get a chance…which leaves you struggling to make it the whole game. Wish there was a way to make it more player friendly for those that have busy lives…like somehow make it so that certain tiles in your area were yours and yours alone. Just a thought.
Using the inspiration of Tolkien’s work this game is pretty much trash. The developers are part of the Chinese government and the chat filters reflect this. Chat filters won’t allow you to talk about China or the Chinese Communist Party. I am an American and I do not agree with these values. They don’t bring balance to the game but look at the book keeping. They take advantage of the addictive nature of mobile gaming. They under deliver 100%. Chat filters filter out the word China, CCP, and communist for example
This new update, or PBE, is absolutely going to destroy this game. It forces everyone to become a high slender or leave, which isn’t fair to low spenders or free to play, and by then their isn’t much hope of getting money from the majority of the players. I’ve played this game for a long time, almost since the original game, but this may cause me to leave. This possible update will ruin the game for most people. Please take my words into consideration, your destroying yourself here.
I’m going to try and keep it real here. And as short as possible so I won’t go into specifics but trust me there are many. The first 2 years of this game have been pretty amazing. Graphics, gameplay, general customization/skill building, team building mechanics and general support more often than not has also been pretty good. Not all game modes (campaigns) were great. We would have liked to see a bit more variety. And feedback was often slow to be implemented. But we did see meaningful improvements over these 2 years and the net net is more good than harm. HOWEVER; they just announced they’re basically deleting the original game and replacing it with something entirely different. Somewhere between 50% and 80% of the things that I spent money for on this game will now be changed. I’ll let all the readers decide for themselves what the implications of that are. I feel sad and betrayed. I’ll keep playing to see what happens but probably done spending. Caveat Emptor, I suppose.
This game has been great for 2+ years. But now, the devs are going to completely change the game. Everything players spent money on will be different now. Not nerfed, everything is different. Items and commanders you spent money on are now not the same item in any way other than name. Some are entirely useless now. I downloaded this 2+ years ago to play the game they had advertised, and continued playing because I enjoyed it. I did not play and spend money on this game for it to be deleted and completely reworked into a different game they feel like making. Nothing is the same and it makes all the time and money the whole community spent a complete waste. Updates are one thing, recreating the entire game after people have spent hundreds or thousands of dollars is crossing the line of lying and stealing. That’s exactly what these devs are doing with this once great game
Big time changes are happening to this game and it will completely change gameplay. But my gripe here is about the people who’ve spent a small fortune,10k plus USD, that will lose all everything they’ve spent money on. Personally Ive only spent a couple hundred. But I will quit the game in solidarity with my friends across the world who will be wronged. This game is a haven for a lot of people and a way for people of many cultures to connect with one another and leave our real work differences aside. Something I believe Tolkien would’ve been in awe to have seen the effect his world has made so many decades later. Dear developers if you read this, please consider the people and fans of this fantasy world, and not just your pockets.
