There are many situations in the game where if you attempt an action that requires resources that you don't have a button appears with an amount of gold that you can spend to get those resources.
My suggestion is to add a "request" button next to the "purchase with gold" button which causes a request for the resources needed to be generated. As is the case now, only 1 request at a time is allowed.
Zynga keeps asking for ideas on how to improve the game so here it goes... you only need to do 2 things:
1) Double (or even triple) the hourly amount of resources generated by the steel factory and tech factory. The majority of resources you get in quick matches is usually from these 2 buildings (since players offload resources to 2nd accounts). Increasing that will provide more loot when you win the battle.
2) Make the QM matching algorithm more like Clash of Clans. You get 100% of loot for same HQ level, 80% for one level lower, 60% for 2 levels lower and 0% for greater than 2 levels below. If you attack a HQ higher than yours then you get 120-150% of the loot amount - based on the level difference.
I put the shield in place around 8 pm last night, and my base was attacked around 1 am this morning, that is only 5 hours by my maths.
everything seems to be working okay again, if you did anything to fix the problem thank you. But I still not happy with much higher level bases being able to attack, like last night when I looked at the base that attacked me, he had weapons I haven't even seen yet, so yet again no hope of retaliating
what are you doing with Hammerfall I can not get past the 3rd base, I will admit I do not have alpha tarmats but that stems from the same old problem a hold back on the fusion elements and the alliance just is not strong enough, both viper and falcon were blown out in the first few seconds. I see you pushing gold sales would that have anything to do with it? you need to find another way to get alpha boosts now that you suggesting to use them on the rally flags as well
