Is it just me or are the buildings a little bit too expensive? For example the academy costs 425K grog to upgrade at PH4. Since I'm only at PH4 I can't tell if you earn a lot more at higher pirate hall levels, but usually these games get harder and harder the more you lvl up. I'm not saying that the game should be quick and easily rushed, but if it requires too much grind it kinda scares away people lol. At least myself always recommend a game with a good pace. I just ask since I don't want another Clash Of Clans game where it takes years to get a good base, and the fact that I REALLY like this game. Just my thought though. Anyone else feel the same or is it just me? Edit: What If the game boosted the resource collectors a bit? Maybe to the point that you could at least get close to upgrading an expensive building each day by just collecting resources? Otherwise we will have to attack all the time in PVP. Maybe a good balance between PvPing and collecting resources would make the game more fluid and less grindy? Just a thought. I have some ideas which could boost the resource collection! What if when you are PvPing, you boost the reward we get, but at the same time the player you plunder from doesn't lose the same amount that you gain. For example: Lets say you boost the resource bonus when PvPing by 30% that goes both ways. Lets say you loot 100k gold from another player. Atm, I gain 100k, and the other one lose 100k. Logic What if it worked like this instead: I plunder the same amount 100k. But instead we boost the reward by 30% so that I get 130k, and at the same time the other guy only loses 70k. I gain more then what he loses. (I promise you that this will reduce the rage quits by 30% lol) Everyone will gain more resources when plundering, and at the same time we lose less when plundered. Edit 2: Maybe we could have a weekly or daily reward? Lets say, If I attack 15 people in 1 day, I will get a good amount gold and grog depending on my lvl? I will then be rewarded for playing. I also think that this will make people plunder and play more in general. What you think?
