We've all been patient with JSON and understand that Innogames may have taken on more than its servers can handle with all the changes, but this needs to get done! If you can't make it work, you need to go back to what did, period. Simply the battle map/units again, remove the city structures that are creating havoc, just do whatever you gotta do. The latest merge has put me in the top hood on Brisgard, with many high premium players who just spent small fortunes on the wheel to fortify their city, many of whom also likely had a couple months head start on me. Am I complaining about this----no, I quite welcome the new challenge. However, I HAVE TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL MY UNITS. Period. The AI will simply attack the rogues who can't attack me for 3 turns anyway and just turn them into tanks which can. It does lots of things that don't make sense strategically. JSON pops up an average of 5 times per battle, simply making players try a few times until they give up and just click auto-attack results. We try to fight, but it simply doesn't work. When the new neighbors have a 400% bonus to their defense due to a hundred watchfires, whats really the point if we CANNOT CONTROL THE UNITS??? I've tried to exercise patience when I see the rants on these forums, but C'mon guys! Lets get this done already. Whatever you gotta do, just do it! I welcome the challenge, but we have to have the chance and be given the opportunity to try our own strategy. The game was once possible to compete somewhat with the spenders, but now we are punished for successful strategy in city planning, and simply not allowed to control our military within any realistic time frame. If you cannot fix this, whats the point?
