    [Question] Great Buildings for Chilling in HMA?

    That's a great point! What about the Happiness, though? Remember, we're foregoing an Alcatraz because we're not interested in fighting.

    100 Diamonds from nowhere

    I have the Chateau, but I've found that if you age up gracefully or park at an age, quests/Frontenac don't produce many diamonds. As for the others: They don't fit my architectural restrictions on my main city, but the Space Carrier is high on my salivation list for my secondary, power-mad city...

    [Question] Great Buildings for Chilling in HMA?

    The problem with looking at high-level cities is that they were developed before the event buildings of the recent past. I've only seen the older event buildings in the Antique Dealer's -- but for a lot of them I marvel at the idea that anyone would ever build one. These days they're all worth...

    [Question] Great Buildings for Chilling in HMA?

    So what you're saying is that you don't see a Gaea everywhere because you do see Arcs everywhere. For those iconoclasts like me & the OP, going without an Arc makes the Gaea essential.

    100 Diamonds from nowhere

    Sweet prize!! And what Brute Force is saying is that you had to do *something* that caused the gift. So the question becomes: where were you when you got them? To expand on Brute Force's answer in case you need the amplification: - In the jungles of GE? (IMHO, the most likely place to see 100...

    [Guide] Guild Battlegrounds

    League Points (LP) now is the openly-displayed MMR. And one fan-run website now claims fixed cross-overs -- that 650 LP will put a guild in Gold, and 651 in Platinum, every time. Is this a change from the 30% in Gold, 25% in Platinum stated above? (At least, I interpret that to mean a floating...

    Sorry, I figured it out. Still think it should be the Hagia, but oh well, I'll pick the Royal Albert from the description.

    [Question] Great Buildings for Chilling in HMA?

    Sorry for the time delay on replying! Hagia Sophia is common and Gaea is not, because most players want to combine fighting & negotiating to save goods. The OP specifically wants a negotiation-only strategy. Without Alcatraz or Hagia, there's a happiness problem (I'm told). Gaea helps with that...

    This should be the Hagia Sophia -- but that's not there! How can the goods production & a supply boost be attributed to the "finest minds"? In short, will I be allowed to say n/a or some such thing?

    Where's Season 11?

    Thank you for explaining. I had missed that!

    Forge of Empires Turns 8 - Feedback

    It's an impressive gift. I just wish I'd had a proper chance to pick which world I wanted it in. I left last night in the *other* world, without (I admit) logging out, so naturally when I opened my browser this morning, there the gift was -- given to the wrong world. Some sort of way to select...

    Where's Season 11?

    Dontwannaname, please don't abandon us! I've looked for the past season in both of my worlds, and it's not to be found.

    [Question] Great Buildings for Chilling in HMA?

    Oh, on the contrary -- play them, play them, play them! The worst that happens is that you decide you don't want, let's say, a train in your city (from the Winter Event), and sell the upgrades & cars for big bucks in the Antique Dealer's. (Not the decision I made, I admit, and have had to go to...
