Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Lack of New Content

Difficult to see the point in continuing. This game would be incredible easy to update with new content (and always has been). Without any promise of an update and what it will contain there’s no reason to be loyal to the game.

Gives no details about what is planned and is when. The suspiciously-minded (and let’s face it, any user of this game has reason to doubt the likelihood of updates “coming soon”) would assume that is because there is nothing in the works.

If updates are coming, why not give us some details. Is it a new craft line? Some lvl 21 items? A new building?
When are they coming? Care to give a rough timetable – even if that is subject to change?

Selling for 0% or +10%, interesting. So little stuff is on trade at even +20% these days I don’t know what that will do to the market.

Not a fan of the day starting paused, but I’ll get over it. Might be useful for when the game crashes and needs a refresh (particularly during the day).

As a slightly lower level player, I look at WT and the 99 purchase button as quite dangerous. There’s plenty of people who in 2 hours can just completely clear out WT. What’s going to be left for everyone else? As you say, there isn’t that much on there as it is.

But trade had already reached this state before the new trade interface. It has been getting worse for several weeks. Maybe the new trade interface exacerbates it more, but I find the convenience outweighs the irritation. The only solution I can think of is to make any city change count against the three allowed. If we could not trade as much that way, it would force more items throgh WT. Good or bad would depend on your point of view, but it would be different.

Yeah you’re probably right. I guess the real problem is the 2 hour coupons. Perhaps should only be half an hour or something. Give people a chance.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / New City/World Trade Interface

It’ll be interesting to see how it develops. I must admit I’m rather sceptical as to whether this necessarily a good change. I strongly suspect that people’s capacity to buy is going to completely outstrip production. Just doesn’t seem like the supply chain is big enough.

Sorry if you already thought of that.

@EdgebeeStudios we could use some communication right now

I only put one up. I’ll try putting a 100 up and report back

Yeah, you only see your own stuff in pending trades. That’s going to take some getting used to.

Well. I might be. I can’t tell because no one else has anything posted in my town. But I can’t see my own items in the CT thing. Its filtered them.

but my WT items are no longer sold in CT as used to be the case. The two options used to be WT/CT or just CT. Now its WT or CT.

I’m a good mayor. If people put something up for WT, I’ll often buy it quicker. I might buy it if its overpriced. Now I won’t see what they’re selling.

Also, no idea about popular opinion on this, but I don’t get the advantages of the separation between city and world trade. Its nice being able to support your citymates by buying their items. this takes a lot of that away.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Trade market UI changes

Yeah. Agreed. All should mean all. Its great that you can type a number in, but you should be able to go higher than 99. Either that or be honest about the “all” button function

Just to add to the sentiment of Azrealol – cheers for continuing to update the game. Really glad I stuck with it when support seemed to have disappeared.

Because we found that parts of the code were still unstable, we preferred postponing the changes to later this week.

I did – they said “we’re aware of the problem. Use firefox instead”.

Rather pointless.

I joined the quest of a friend and now whenever I try and view progress my screen goes darker without even a buffering signal. I have to refresh to go back to the game.

Hopefully my SS isn’t out of commission for 2 days as a result..

Just send a bug report – they’re generally very good at responding to those. Its a bit extreme to condemn them so roundly.

I agree with rolo. I think the energy refresh time is pretty good all things considered.

Topic: I AM PLAYR / Why is my team so weak?

I agree with Disavenged. 40-50 goals and getting 4th is amazing. 23 games into the season I’ve reached the 50 mark and I’m in 7th. I expect I will finish lower as I usually do despite scoring 60+ goals a season. I am the greatest striker the world has ever seen and Peterson still shouts at me and I still play for a shit team.

What happens when you pass the ball to a teammate? Its genuinely never occurred to me to do that (and its a bit risky to try it out as I rarely get more chances than the opponents get goals..)
