Here are a few ideas to fix the game, stuff that bothers me and a lot of players.
1 Fix the quickmatch by matching the HQ level! This is absolutly a MUST! Does not make any sense matching medals.
2 IN the case of fighing and winning a opponent with a higher level HQ you SHOULD WIN MORE MEDALS. (ex. Hq lv 12 agains a lv 13, a 100% win gets 24 medals, but a lv 12 vs a lv 14 gives 48 medals.
BUT fighting with a lower lv ex lv12 agains a lv 11 gets only 3 medals win case of victory, BUT A BIG LOSS OF MEDALS IN CASE OF DEFEAT!
3 Make a new building called Tactical Command where you can define BEFORE fight what troops you want to attack what ( ex , having rangers attacking resource buildings and having strikers and tanks attacking defense buildings.) there is A LOT that can be done here.
Same thing with the guard tower, choose if we want to attack the closest troop or the weakest or the thougher one. (just like a tower defense game)
4 When you sign the tarmacs to a Squad, those troops NEED TO BE TOGHETHER ALL THE TIME.
Many times I have a group going up and and another going down which has mixed Squads. In the military squads stick toghether. It is a big FAIL!!
5 Choppers are basically useless, weak and don't have much fire power, should be reviewed. And actually see what the best players use and level all the other troops. (Tanks are virtually useless)
6 Fix the Strikers , I mean, they stop in the middle of the fight without moving, what the ****??!!
7 As for the league, the first 3 players should get>crate, flag, gold + RESOURCES
8 In WAR if an opponent MAXXED OUT the war should finish by then and not have to wait the full 24H. It is a waste of time
9 We should be able to buy resources with gold (which I am aware that we can) but be much more valuable. If I am spending real money, it should give me much more resources that it will. this brings topic 10
10 Having another building called Market Place where the player can put offer of resources in trade for other kinds. Also being able to put soldiers there as mercenaries. (ex put an Ad offering 10 Rangers for 1000 steel(whatever the amount the creator of the ad wants) but make this a general thing for all the players in the game, not just the ones in the alliance. There are a lot of options to put in this if Zynga wants! Even sell Nukes for gold, or extra airstrike this ones only zynga can offer but for gold.
I am sure that there are many more ideas and better than this ones, but they should be taken into serious consideration and reflecting over them.
