Re: "Hacker" claims: make sure you think before making these. If you level up some gladiators and get good gear, you can then give this to lower level gladiators in your school. This is completely legitimate, and not 'hacking'.
Re: "speed is useless": it can be a very useful part of your strategy - your enemy's abilities count for nothing if he's dead/disabled before he can use them! ;)
Great game, but of course I have a wishlist to make it an EPIC one! I. Add more cities! II. Add animal combat - lions, boar, bears, wolves, bulls... III. Bonuses for wearing more pieces from same set. IV. More varied tasks, e.g. 'Execute X gladiators', 'Use X technique Y times'... V. Low level with good gear can easily defeat an enemy double their level. Use minimum levels for armour/weapons. VI. Different finishing moves! VII. Option for gore (for when my kids are around!) VIII. More weapon types, e.g. spatha, pugio, falx. IX. Option to ask the blacksmith to make weapon, helmet or armour. X. Fix typos like 'Ceasar' (Caesar), 'vainquish' (vanquish) etc. XI. On later cities I always know which gladiator will be targeted first, making game too easy... XII. Show our MP level. XIII. Leave more space to show the +/- changes when shopping. XIV. Allow gladiators in the school to train (slowly) while they are not being used. That's what schools are for! XV. Keep up the great work!
Please, please, please pay attention to spelling... the silly typos distract from an otherwise great game. Examples - it should be 'Caesar' not 'Ceasar' in team names, and the word is 'vanquish' for the goals...
