EVONY Age III

What Evony needs to do is start Evony Age III. in Age III they need to make it a pay to play game. i.e. $10 per year. but make it like Age 1 was in the beginning. Where you can get medals from NPC's and yeald on medal farming is HIGH. Where you can pick on anyone you think you are tough enough to beat. You can capture someones highlevel heroes and actually be able to persuade them with the medals you have acquired.

Also make it where you can have multiple accounts, because after all you are all about the money. And as for money you would still be able to buy extras just like you do now in Age 1. All the extras bought only help you build faster anyways.

What do you all think? Would you pay $10 a year to play an Evony that you could actually enjoy playing and not be frustrated with? Let Evony know your thoughts on the matter.

$10 a player per year X 1million players = $10million a year profit. Not a bad take for not haveing to do anything other then resetting Age 1 to the days of old and changing the Name to Evony Age III

    ok so u think evony will make $10 million of age 3. WRONG. u have to tkae into consideration all the time, effort, and resources(i.e. hard drives, ram space, licenses) that it would cost to make this age 3 and maintain it i.e. server maintenance 1x per day. it would also take them about 4-6 months to even design all the software. so really they would b lucky to make out with a million or 2.
    im all for the idea of age 3, but with the way things look on ages 1 and 2, it wont happen. ppl r quittin the game bc of the errors and flaws in the game, like the medal drop rate. ppl r also quitin bc of the unfair advantages. like ppl who r willin to spend thousands of dollars to make their hero #1 on the server. their was a new age 1 server, i looked into a week or 2 ago. only open for 2 weeks tops, and som1 already ahd a 1516 att hero. after 2 weeks some1 has a hero like that. if i saw that on my server after 2 weeks i wouldve quit, and i no a ton of ppl have quit bc of that one person. if age 3 were to open, to make things fair evony would have to put a spendin cap on each player per month like $200 or something.
    b4 any talks about age 3 tho, evony needs to fix ages 1 and 2, to keep the loyal players happy

  • Bizzaro, what are you talking about? design software 4-6 months. they already have all the software and server space they need can be aquired from age 1 and 2 server consolidations. Age III would be the original age 1 before they messed it up. This would keep the loyal players happy. The loyal players like it in the beginning of age 1 when I started. A player didn't need to spend all the money to make it big. You grew fast and strong. Everything is already there they just have to listen to what the players want and they would make their money.

    • Well my opinnion on age3 is good ideas. But consolidating server to make more servers is stup1d that should wait til an alliance has every lv14 ,16 and the 18. and then merge onto one other server. Ca3 is fvck up in itself. It has more servers than the others and the 1billion a city troop counts is crazy. Some players have more troops in one city than 5 100 member alliance with prinz and 50m per accnt. the reason there are botter. bcos somehow these people get these tc's. You cant stop em.

    As a complete cheapskate, I never pay to play mmog's. I think Evony would be better off keeping it free for poor people like me and restructuring the items they sell. Or they could take the huge leap and actually consider the problems that have caused their player base to drop so rapidly

  • Age 2 has supposed 0 troop upkeep and it sucks. You can be as much as a cheap skate as you want to be and play Age 1 or 2. I feel that if I buy a game for my PS3 or Wii I pay from $20-$70 so I wouldn't mind paying $10 a year.

    As for Npc Evony? Take on wars out of the shop??? Have no idea what you are talking about.

    Evony will never change the Age 1 servers back to their former glory they have already told us that. I know and you know that any good businessman listens to his customers and tries to keep them happy. But evony isn't a good businessman, all's they see are people still playing their game no matter how bad they treat them, and they are still spending that money.

    I like the idea, but I don't see Evony doing it.

    We have all seen how well they do at listening to their customers to begin with and giving us what we want. Makes me wonder why they keep the forums, customer service reps, and now this site going at all. They don't seem to make any use of them. They keep adding more like there is some meaningful purpose to them, though after the mail I got from Evony in response to my complaint today I have realized that these are just places for us to whine that they don't necessarily have to listen to.

    I agree Age III is needed soon. I will disagree on going back to the so-called Age 1 glory days.

    1. Evony should take whats was successful in ages 1&2 and fix or discard what was unsuccessful.
    2. Implement rules they will and can actually enforce.
    3. Redesign the game mechanic to facilitate balance
    4. Last but absolutely the hardest to do, is encourage spending but in such a way it doesnt disrupt the game or create a huge disparity between Big spenders and non-spenders.

    Fixing Age 1 and 2 is a waste of manpower and money. Yes tweak it, fix small issues but the boat has sailed on Age 1&2.

    Right now, Evony makes its profit from the players who pay. This is obvious to everyone. What isn't so obvious is that the business model of Evony isn't to sell coins to the occasional player who sometimes drops $30 on the game -- their business model is selling human-controlled opponents to big spenders.

    While my internet was down a few weeks ago, I had the joyful experience of being tag-teamed by two of the top-5 coiners on one of the servers I play. Why did it take two of them? I have no idea, actually, but I do wonder if they feel ripped off, since their target was not online at all during the time it took them to take my city and drop so much honor on me that I am in the top-50 for honor on that server now!

  • We have all paid to play. but unlike many of you I stopped playing all together because of the large coiners. I had a very large account and did it all without spending money. But while offline for a weekend I was taken down quite a bit. I had 4 very large heroes taken and one of my cities. It took over 300 hits on the city once it went to 0% loyalty. I don't have any problems paying 20 or 30 dollars. this is what a cheap ps3 or xbox game would cost. then let you build and battle as you wish.

    Plus. as is was in the golden ages a large hero might flee a city but he would return once all was safe. If the enemy cann't persuade him I believe he should come back home.

    How the hell is the evony team ment to make money? ofc they are going to charge in some way.... its only right. I play many online games and evony is a little unfair, all the game iv played however are monthly subscription, so i would love to see evony go subscription, maybe we would get a monthly or weekly package we could use to boost our empires, amulets are a great idea to stir things up a little, give some people the edge, but we all must get the same packages to keep everyone from crying. Rock on evony!

    I think the should make age III but as said that it should be free cuz many people like to play them and can play them like me i am 15 years old i love playing it and many people like me wants to play but if these restriction i cant try age III.
    It should have high medal drop rate, no cents buying and high chances of item from npcs like speakers and other things. It will make it every1 equal for every1 and will see who is strong there HAH or its ok if the buying thing isnt possible but others should be

    Does anyone consider how fraudulent Evony is? This is a company who sabotages drop rate and game outcomes to benefit more spending... Evony is dead because coiners kill servers. People are able to spend way too much and take over the server way to fast. Non-payers can't compete with people dropping a couple k. If you can't pay.. it takes a lot longer and a lot more effort just to lose that work to a coiner with insane hero's or troop counts. They patch multi hits and try to minimize peoples armies, but all they hurt is the non-payers. Ok so a coiner can't farm now.. big whoop. Buys him few weeks of vesta's and farms for two weeks. Then repeat when he needs to. Too easy for coiners to ruin server... Hence why evony comes out with a new server each month. They make tons the on new servers.. but in the long wrong.. people are losing out to decent servers. If you can't pay.. there is no point in playing anymore. Absolutely nothing but frustration... and devastation after working on your account so long just to get owned by Evony employees.. or coiners.

    I dont like this idea about pay to play, how about this.
    Evony age 3:

    First, I would like to say that this is an idea I had about a week ago. Evony age 3 is not like the other two; here you build your cities like age 1, practically all the graphics are like age 1. Here is sort of an outline of how it works:

    1. Graphics

    A. Graphics and the way you play.
    - Graphics are the same as age 1 with a little change based on your choice.
    - The way you play is the same thing as age 1 but with many exceptions. You will see this later on.

    2. Layout of the game

    A. Object of the game
    - Object is to build your city, farm NPC’s, fight other players, and have fun!
    - Join a government and work your way to the top.

    B. Alliance
    - Instead of alliance, you should do a government or Kingdom.
    - Kingdoms will be ruled by kings with knights.
    - Government would be ruled with whatever type of governments.

    1. Kingdoms
    - I don’t have any suggestions for any Kingdoms

    2. Governments
    A. Type of Governments.
    - Monarchy
    - Republic
    - Democracy
    - Etc.
    This is a good idea I think... What do you all think?

    I actually agree with whateryouserious but here is what i suggest

    You have two types of servers

    Server Type A)
    -NO COINING WHATSOEVER
    -The only way to get coins is too WIN them off of the wheel
    -$5 monthly subscription to play in that server

    Server Type B)
    -Coining is allowed
    - NO SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED TO PLAY

    With this set up you can fight toe to toe with the server on even footing.with no money advantages, But for Evony to continue to make money there will be a $5 server subscription. And Subscriptions would run through the Account not the Server. Or you can play against coiners, but its free to play. Just my thought, hope the Evony team likes the idea and incorporates this into the next Age they release(if they ever release another one)

  • Ok i know i am just a little guy in an big dog eat little dog world. I have tried to put cash in the game on age I and age II. i got no where fast. i still play age II on 4 servers na10 na21 na26 and na35 and as i see it pay to play people kil off any one that dose not have the funds to keep up.

    i am a farmer for others because farming is easy. other do the big fights i cant do. troop up keep kills me. i have devoted about 3-5 hrs a day just tring to live on the game, i have a really life and cant keep doing this where you try and try to grow and others that are ether lucky on the wheel or pay for coins will just kill you off and make you want to quit. many of the ideas i have seen on here seem to be good. I really don't know what would be the best move next for AGE III but coin has to stop. 5 $ a month i could do. that is the big one for me.

    Scott Weber thanks for letting me rant.

  • all of u talk about paying and not paying per year or per month when if u think about it why wouldnt someone pay 5 bux a month look at the 15 million players paying monthly of 15 bux to play World of warcraft, or aion or any of the other mmorpg games. it would be more benificial to evony if they took there heads out there ass and put something together that would make everyone happy. paying 5 bux a month with a monthly bonus would be ok. paying anything more wouldnt be worth it.

    If and when they do decide to put out an age3 lets just hope they dont fk this one up and be complete retards about it. servers and the downloading content. isnt hard. if ur computer cant run evony as it is go spend 500 bux for an upgrade. and if ur computer cant support evony ur computer sucks balls.

    I like evony but for the most part u gotta spend 200 bux to be anything good when you can spend 180 bux a year on wow or aion or any other mmorpg's just an example and those games are 300 times better in graphics and gameplay then evony.

    Im just saying if the evony team would actually listen to us. they might for once do something right.. or maybe they need to fire everyone and hire real techs..

  • I seriously doubt Evony is going to make Age III look anything even remotely close to Age I, if they even plan on coming out with an Age III.

    Age III would be an upgrade from Age II, just like Age II was supposed to be an upgrade from Age I.

    Also, Evony makes a ton of money off both ages, where there really is no spending cap at all. Why would they cut their profits in the extreme? A free game attracts a lot of players, and those who are willing to pay to keep it running, pay to keep it running.

    Coiners get the perks for a reason: they pay the salaries and wages of EVERYONE who works to keep their game running. People who don't spend a dime just have to work to keep up.

    That's the Law of the Jungle when it comes to free games. The sooner you realize that is the sooner you'll see how the gaming industry works.

    The less you pay is the less you contribute to making your game free to play, hence less perks becuase frankly, the developers LOVE those who pay to play their games.

  • I’m Not sure
    Well a lot of people are not going to pay for this game as a program, it's a browser game and people will still think it is, so the program thing is not going to work in my point of view. Evony plz keep it going like this, because every time some company takes too big a step it could end up in failure and there is always a chance of that.

    Thnx :)

  • They can't fix the biggest problem with age i & II. The customer support has been completely shattered beyond repair & no matter what they produce in Age III, it will always revert back to poor customer service so gameplay will suffer as usual.

  • I’m agreeing
    What we need, is a server where you can't Pay2Win, with higher medal Yields, where you can't get attacked by someone overpowered...that could be Age III.
    • Protip: To increase the odds of an idea even being considered, the idea needs to be something that will make the employees a lot of money.

      High level attackers are generally spenders, so a request for a no-money server is a total waste of time.

      A possible better approach is to mention that medals (Age 1) and hero gear materials (Age 2) being somewhat more plentiful would increase the offensive and defensive capabilities of players, which in turn could generate more revenue as people spend on more teleports and other attack-oriented items.

      Unfortunately, the apparent mindset of the company is similar to what Jurnis expressed a few months ago, which is that you either pay or you have to work excessively hard at the game. The belief they appear to have is that people will choose to pay rather than work excessively hard. Unfortunately, that didn't take into account the 3rd party software doing the work for people instead of people paying to advance, and to this day, it still doesn't.

  • Here are screen shots of how evony handles your complaints when you bash their customer service because they screw up and you want an age 3?

    To Evony customer service.

    Time to put out a new resume boys your job is ending soon. Evony is going Bye Bye before your eyes while you sit here and worry about me bashing your lack of ability to do your job. Maybe you should have answered me months ago instead of just ignoring my tickets
