I have to say this has been my home for some time and very much enjoy what HWS has to offer. Like all great empires though I feel we are soon reaching critical mass in lots of areas. We all love the outside game features to bring items from one season to another but I feel we have all become too complacent with these wonderful gifts from the gods. I feel we should one day have to do a complete wipe of everything down to the foundation and start anew. There will be major kickback I understand but this does need serious thought.
As most of us, in the beginning I was blown away by the way HWS features enhanced my gaming experience here. This game was not high on my fun list until I found this home. I have taken major advantage of these superhuman abilities as must as possible. Over the seasons past I have seen many come and go. Some return, some never show face again. Mostly it is due to boredom of doing the same list of chores every time they log in.
One of the inherent flaws in many software applications is the amount of leftover and worthless data that is being indexed and cataloged even though it is no longer relevant. This is usually the reason for server wipes to clear out all the garbage code and start fresh. Think of a house of cards. Sometimes the house needs to be leveled, the deck reshuffled, and the house rebuilt. Here at HWS, we have been shuffling the same cards for a long time now and some are starting to show wear and tear. It may be time to get a new deck.
I propose a complete revamp/restructure of all HWS features. This includes upgrade costs as well as the content of their abilities. Doing this would mean all players would be essentially starting from scratch in all areas of HWS. I honestly feel this would revitalize the stale boredom of what seems to be daily chores more than anything. Yes we will lose some players if this happens but I feel we ALL need to get out of our comfort zones and start to enjoy the game again.
