Lighthouse Quests – When to play and when not to play

Greetings,

I will be using a red lighthouse to indicate when not to play these quests and a green lighthouse when it is back to normal. After the Plarium update here a day or so ago, the payout on the lighthouse quests has changed. It now takes double the bank needed to payout and they reduced the payout 25%. Here are the numbers before the update and after.

Before:
starting offense 7150218 mix of troops
starting defense 0 troops
I spent a total of 2,942,110 million in offense doing this run showing bank needed about 3 million for first big payout
ending offense 6726972 mostly jugs
ending defense 200,000 mostly subs

payout 20-25% Bank will take about 35-40% net loss is about 15-20% per fight:
20% – 25% at lighthouse fight #1-8

80% at at lighthouse fight #9 – troops 223,200 offense

20% – 25% at lighthouse level #10

30% at lighthouse level #11

At lighthouse fight #12 – a level 62 fight
Payout 400%
1,861,440 in jugs
223 in subs

Notice the ratio when it did pay out on battle 22. My recommendation is to stop playing the lighthouse until all the Holiday events are over. save your rubies.

Is Euru or Rual worth our time?

We need to ask this questions as we are in a completely different league than Euru or Rual. We are an alliance and my guess is Plarium has no way to track that. Here is an example, who is the number one alliance? Who’s alliance has the most members. Who’s alliance have the most bastions. Things like this. Euru and Rual are stuck in a brotherhood only status quo by Plariums design. They can’t seem to wrap their heads around what it takes to do a vary large scale action, (Kudo’s Lance) and as we play we learn more every day with new tricks to try. But the best part is the playing, the friendships that will outlast the game. So I say, let them spend their ruby’s and give their money to Plarium, they do not seem to want to cater to us anyway. We are over 1000 members strong and growing. Our last action we used only 4.7% of us, what are your thoughts?
