    Really? I'd give it maybe a b+ for crazy level. Now, when project blue skies drops (and even before as hints arrive), I expect it to rival the firestorm surrounding the infamous December update.

    OP - when you grow up, you might finally understand.

    Multiple reductions in costs/timers, the addition of magic items, CGs, CWL, a new medal rewards system that strongly favors the player, and now even more resources/magic items being given away. Yet somehow, when the company introduces a product that costs a pittance and offers even more resources at a price far less than ever before available, it’s a cash grab and shows a lack of appreciation of the player.

    Utterly ridiculous. I’m out - you guys can keep trying to get through to this one.

    The reason I would like to see a rants sub-forum is to remove rants to a place where they do not fester rancor among the forum base. Unfortunately, when these topics come up, they must be responded to; all that is needed for ignorance to grow and prosper is for those with knowledge to not partake in the conversation. Poisoned thoughts infect a community and spread like a cancer until they become the norm. It’s one of the reasons we have so many problems - REAL problems - in western society today. Better to relegate this nonsense to the sewer where it can flow away from the community and be processed accordingly.
    Noc, I did respect your input in the other thread, but here you just turned being plain toxic, which is a shame

    Tl;dr to all your comments. Yay to reduction in costs! Thank God I don't have to actually play this game for so long, it's such a waste of time. Instead I can just pay my way to the top and concentrate on paying for my subscription to Google, Facebook, YouTube, Gmail, Hotmail...

    I used to spend so much time attacking other opponents and earning gold and elixir and progressing my base. What a fool I am! I could've just bought my way to the top, completed it and left .

    I can see where Noc is coming from. And it does relate to this thread, at least obliquely. Just as there have been the flame wars fought with religious vigor over maxer / rusher, there has been a conflict vs f2p and gemmers / spenders. I've seen it here and in other games. Some, by no means all, but some f2p equate actually spending money as a sin greater than eating your young. The idea that you cannot get something, even a decoration, with free currency violates their archer queen given rights to have everything someone who pays a bit has. Both f2p and p2p are vital to the game. However, there is nothing wrong with playing either way. I can completely understand the I can't afford it, I prefer the challenge of not spending it up and other very reasonable reasons to not spend. The I'm morally superior to you dirty spenders attitude frequently displayed, not so much.

    As far as the long lost purpose of the op, I'm still not sure of the point. I think it was intended to be stop showing the gold tier to silver players so they don't feel bad? Marketing 101. Show the bling to bring in the green.

    Last, a rant sub forum? Pretty sure that's general. And as long as people care enough to rant, even if they are nutcases who dare to disagree with me, more power to them.

    TBH i hav seen many spenders overestimate their importance to the game here on forums on contrary to that, i hav also seen many f2p players overestimate their importance to the game in many clans i hav been in. so it depends upon person to person you cant group them all and say one is doing it wrong.

    after all we are all just playing a game(weather u play free or spend) what is there to overestimate about? are we doing something good for humanity here?

    from a player's perspective, you just play the game however you want to enjoy it but from a developer's perspective, both f2p community & spending community should hold equal importance at least IMO.

    to your 2nd point that you being surprised that SC did not take a p2p/p2w model yet, may be thats why coc is so successful after so many years behind it. in freemium, thats a hude deal imo. and coc being an older SC game yet still ahead of a newer SC game like CR on top charts should prove it i think.

    CWL now 15x or 30x, new troop levels, free trap and defense reloading, new defense levels, replacement method for absent leaders, faster less expensive upgrades, etc.. this update was so much more.
    Because people who refuse to pay are somehow deserving of the same benefits as those who do.

    Yeah. Makes no sense but that thought process seems to be common lately.

    If there was anything deserving of rolling eyes and general mocking/disdain, it would be Tl; dr.

    Typically used by those of minimal attention span and consequentially, limited bank accounts.

    Maybe it is you who needs to grow up and show more respect to others. If you dont like it,dont read it. If this was not such a divisive issue then it wouldnt have had so many responses..

    There is nothing here that ive said that has been insulting but obviously there are others who are not so mature that they have to resort to insults or slurs..grow up!

    I think itís high time to end the fighting as we are really running around in circles in this thread.

    If you want the pass and rewards then buy it, if you do not or cannot then donít.

    Thank you! ClashOfHolmes for an awesome sig!

    Just call me K, my name is too difficult to spell.
