Was wondering if anyone else threw up in their mouths a little as they read this? Card game? Daily quests? Not just hero items, but they can be improved now? More premium items which further sell power? I'm not surprised anymore that this is the direction in which we're going, but I'm still annoyed. All of the above are things that either aren't game improvements (and are therefore unneeded additions to the game), are meant to slurp the last bit of gold out of your pockets, or just straight up don't have anything to do with Travian. Why not focus on making the core gameplay actually happen/work? It's the core gameplay I want to spend most of my Travian-time thinking about, not all the robbers/heroes/oasis/cardgame/auction/silver/gold crap. Do you still remember what the core gameplay is, devs? It's having a group of people and bashing other groups of people's heads in with a catapult or chief.
I look on in disgust as you keep destroying the game further by making it more of a casual facebook game.
