I completely agree. I like the ideas of the ranked games, that maybe map creators could have their maps tested by Bytro employees to see if they're fair. (Any thoughts, mods?) But I've wanted this for a while and would love to see it become a thing.
Lol all i've ever caught is my allies wondering if i'm a threat. (Honestly, I was snatching all the territory they wanted...)
But when I saw their message, I messaged both of them and said something like: "if you think i'm a threat or you want me to share, tell me. If not, don't even try." They didn't talk to me for another 3 days
I believe GM should exist, however should have the option of creating games that GM can not use.
They should also limit the amount of GM used per game every 24 hours. Example: Day 1 the player uses 25k from GM and this is the limit. On Day 2 he can use GM again, however the daily limit will be 25k GM.
But about other means of monetization ... I do not know if they ever thought of creating a virtual store that sells items related to the theme of World War I. It may seem like a ridiculous idea for a gaming company, as it would certainly be very complex to put this into practice. But a similar idea would be a store inside the S1914 that the player could buy skins for the avatars of the games. For example: in a certain map I'm with Germany and I would like to change the default photo of Kaiser for another photo of him only that colorized and for that it will be through a collection of images that the S1914 makes available, some free and others paid. Obviously you would have to remove the player's option to put any photo. It may also seem like a ridiculous idea, but it's something that does not affect the game's balance like GM, which can totally change the course of a game, while what I'm suggesting is just one of those common things in these popular games that love to sell "cute items" for players to spend their money, but that does not affect the game.
I would like to hear other players' opinions on these ideas.
I like that idea, and would like to expand it. I've always wanted to change city and country names, because as North Canada, for example, after you invade South Canada, you're the only Canada. I'm not sure how this would be implemented, but having an option to change country/city names for goldmark could be a good idea.
There was such feature in the past but bytro's partner in it wasn't very relayable so it was removed as it caused more issues that gains. I don't know how much such ads could gain but all bits help off course.
I don't know anything about that, personally, but as a player that doesn't spend any money on the game, I like the idea of adding ads, but still it is another way people will abuse goldmark. I don't think it should be banned, but daily caps or caps based on in-game activity should exist. Personally I enjoy winning games so I can get the goldmark and use it in my other games. That being said people abusing the ads could be a problem. Maybe a limit of ads-per-day? Or something else.
I can change it but I have a FP game. I have heard of simular bugs so I do think FP shows in the next update it will be fixed but I'll pass it on to higher up to be certain.
So I have had this problem before, but I've noticed a different one more recently. I haven't been able to change my leader name in any game, and the game also swapped my previous custom names to my username. I can still change ruler title, picture, and flag, but this is the only one not working. (To go into specifics, I change the name, click save changes, and nothing changes. But if I re-enter the customization screen later, my custom name isn't there.)
Might just be something on my end, but just wanted to see if anyone else is having this issue. Hope this isn't in the new version.
