I have dropped my rating down to three stars simply do to the fact of over pewerd attributes to the game. Alowing another player that is 5 levels over or under you to attack you is not fair. Also the "Colossus" is verry unfair as well. Basically impossible to defeat when attaking and it is defending. Almost impossible to defeat when it is attacking you. All that said, the game was way better when it was basic war not gigantic robot battling.
Everything is just a little too structured and the game progresses down a rigidly predetermined path where winners win by investing money and NOT by virtue of their unique input or creativity. It's more of the same old facebook style garbage games, just with a bit more polish and refinement. It tricks you into thinking that you're building something, but It's just leading you by the collar. It's addictive by design, not because it's fun or compelling.
Complete waste of time, don't get me wrong, the game is really fun. But due to the fact that PvP matching is based off medals, not HQ lvl or star rank. In stuck at a point where I have a lvl 12 HQ and I'm only matched against people with HQ lvl 17+. Fix this zynga this is ridiculous. I have NOTHING to do now but log on once a day and collect supplies. this will remain a bad review until this gets fixed considering how much money I've already invested in this game.
My only issue with this game is how it's plagued by matchmaking issues. You're constantly matched against players at a much higher level than you. It gets very old very fast.
Medals do Not mean anything. Keep your medal count low and YOU NEVER NEED TO SPEND $$$ ON REAL GOLD AGAIN, since Zynga will never fix the matchmaking system. People can drop their medal count and get easy matches to get ALOT of FREE resources. There is no penalty for dumping your Medals to low levels. Also make sure everyone keeps their medals low in your alliance and you will be paired up with easy battles to get ALOT of easy resources. Yes, I want a Zynga response to how they will fix this system, because I like this game but it's matchmaking system is broken. There are alot of solutions to this easy problem
The continued error codes, getting matched against teams hundreds, even thousands higher is complete BS! You write the help desk and a few days later get a BS,cut and paste response. This could be such a great game, to bad Zynga doesn't care about it's paying players....AT ALL!!!!
