Yeah... it is baffling, yet another update and nothing on Jacques and how he has become an absolute requeriment at pretty much all stages of the game. This void update is indirectly a buff to him as players with Dwarf Jacques are at much later stages.
I stopped spending money, I'm not even bothering to post here anymore. So many issues... this game just boils down to bronze+Jacques for pillaging while creating dozens of alts to feed your main account to keep growing after the pillage phase dries up and you run out of bandit camps, bosses and TS while needing to keep up with 100k+ common and 1k+ rare resource costs. The lack of PvE progression and uncapped pillage makes it insanely unbalanced, you just raise a bunch of farm account, keep them safe at capital and then weekly raid it to get far more resources per attack than you would get pillaging others. It's sad because you will fall behind if you only actively play on your main account like you should and won't do that.
If your kingdom starts doing bad rather than fighting the war game you just migrate to the next one and repeat as you need.. the strongest kingdom simply drops city to avoid the limitation. The merge announcement without specifying which ones were getting merged is simply killing my server 118 (highest castle is only 27)... players already talking of joining up because of that, and we had 5 active kingdoms, only Hyral dead.
