    At 500 gems a pop I have bought every single one that has come past my trader... considering I have a collection of about 40 odd holiday obstacles moving them around was a huge task. That said I got it done, never bought any gems before, although I did start buying the gold pass, so that does give me about 500 gems a month...

    500 gems really isn't all that many, after all this is a vanity item, for someone who for years who's only original Christmas tree planted horribly in the middle of my base the introduction of this item was well worth the price. So I guess it's all about perspective.

    Honestly I don't think that the description is misleading, ambiguous maybe. But also on use the item asks you more than once if you want to use it and reminds you that it is only a single use. So if like the OP you bought one not understanding how it works you won;t do it twice.

    A player who only gets about 500 gems in 4 months, isn't much of a loyal customer though and frankly he's been out of the game for more than a year, so even less loyal than that. Although I do have to say, SC support staffer could have probably handled the situation better and refunded the gems, although I suspect given the kind of post posted here after the fact there may be a little more to the story so who knows.

    Quite frankly this is a mountain out of a mole hill situation.

    I'll leave it alone. I don't think it's that far off from the OP topic though. The OP was talking about buying a "Shovel of Obstacles" and thinking that it could move more than one obstacle. That leads to the confusion in naming convention, and suggestions for more accurate names that I'm talking about.

    Done.

    Anything would be more accurate than everything for that book. Anyway, back the shovels, I don't find it confusing and it is just too bad OP didn't ask around a bit before spending an amount of money that would upset him this much. I know I would.

How is war map placement of max halls determined you ask, check out threads like this one. Thank you SC for the new legends! However, check this thread on how to fight collusion here.

    If a single shovel pushed the OP over the edge I am not sure they could stand all the other changes that have occurred to the game... lol

    There are a couple reasons why it's called the Shovel of Obstacles.

    1. Shovel of Obstacle just sounds plain weird and nonsensical.
    2. It doesn't move just one kind of obstacle. It can move any kind of obstacle. Since there are multiple kinds of obstacles, it stands to reason that obstacle is plural. Just like Book of Heroes, it completes the upgrade of any single Hero - not multiple Heroes at a time.
    3. All Magic Items in the game are single use. I understand if OP may have taken time off from the game but Magic Items were introduced more than a year ago.

    However, I can understand if the descriptive text wasn't as clear as we assumed and I have passed that on to the game team.

    Could call it the "Obstacle Shovel"

    I think the description of the shovel is the only thing that needs to be updated to say something along the lines of "Can be used to move any one obstacle!"

    Curious line of thought....So should the Book of Everything more properly be called the Book of Anything, because it will complete ANY single "event" in progress, but not everything going on at once....although if you read the description is does seem to explain what it does.
