The current version Evony has some major problems that I hope are fixed when Evony: Age II is released! The first problem is that players who are paying to play this game are receiving a clear advantage over non-paying players. The second problem is that the seven day beginners protection given a player is not enough time to to protect yourself from becoming a "farm" for other players to feast upon. The third problems is the length of time it takes, even with high Academy tech numbers, to build high level improvements to your buildings, armies & fortifications.
Although Evony advertises itself as a free game, it is clearly obvious that players who are paying to play this game are receiving a clear advantage over non-paying players! If you see that a player has achieved the title pf "Prinzessin," this player has most likely purchased the medals needed to achieve this title! The more medals a player is allowed to purchase means the higher their Title. Higher title means more cities, which then more barracks, which then means more troops. To level the playing field, Evony should create a pay-to-play version of this game & a non-paying version of this game!
Evony states that players are afforded beginners protection for seven days to build their troops and fortify their walls to try to prevent their city from being attacked by another player. Players, like I was, quickly realize that this is not enough time to to protect yourself from becoming a "farm" for other players to feast upon. To adequately protect your city from attack, a player needs about 130K Scouts, to prevent your city from being scouted, about 130k Archers & about 15k Archer Towers on level 10 Walls, to prevent your city from being attacked. There is no way a player can achieve this in seven days!
To also improve gameplay, I think that Evony should also look into reducing the length of time it takes to obtain high level building & Academy research. Who looks forward to waiting 7+ days to obtain level 10 walls, even with Contruction Academy research level 10? Who looks forward to waiting 7+ days to obtain Archery, level 10, even with a high intelligence hero! Did I mention the fact that Evony only allows one building project & one research project to be in process at any given time!
If Evony creates paying & non-paying versions of the game, allows players to come out of protection when they are truly ready to defend their city, & shortens the time of contructing high-level building & high-level researches in the Academy, I believe that I may try to play this game again. It is also quite possible that the currently low rating numbers for Evony on this web site may also improve!
