    Hey,

    Remember how the last time you did this we of the smaller clans got really cranky and activity in the realms (not to mention purchases) dropped during that first shrine event so you decided to get rid it it?

    Why are you bringing it back? Do the devs get their rocks off by driving the smalls out of the game? Does the CFO like deliberately depressing revenues in the lead up to the end of the quarter?

    This is obnoxious on ATA's part. Stop it.

    As much as I disliked it last time I think they re instituted it as a incentive to compete for shrines and the stronghold to avoid getting tyranny placed on themselves

    ...yeah...well, it's not like the smaller clans will actually win, lol. So even if they compete to not get it placed on themselves...all they'll actually end up losing is troops.

    Tyranny looks cool, just wish the tax went to the whole clan instead of just the ruler

    I'm staging my own one man useless protest. No gathering or any kind of purchases during tyranny tax. Purchases have reduced massively anyhow due to realising how pointless it appears to be.

    Don’t waste your time, ATA have shown time and time again that they don’t give two craps about the players or you. How much clearer do they have to make it? Perhaps if they wait for Christmas Day and visit you personally and take a crap on your Christmas turkey you’ll get the message..

    They care about $$$$$$$$ that is all. I recommend everyone just quit this POS like I did months ago. There are so many games out there, far far better value and way better mechanics! There are games that are run by good devs, and ones that don’t just create basic simple generic pay to play/ pay to win games.

    @ATA take that tax and put it up your as

    It's a war game, not SIM city. Get rid of this stupid tax.

    Then why you still on the forums 👀👀

    Why complain? Honestly, why complain? Are you telling me you don’t pay tax to your government? Or to your state? You don’t pay the landlord? It’s called the powerful rule the weak. If you don’t like the tax, don’t gather or get over yourself. I’ve never been ruler and won’t for a long time yet, but I’m not gonna complain because of my inability

    No taxation without representation! We have no say in the ruler, and it’s the same people taking the shrines everytime due to the unbalanced mechanics of the game. I will never accept an oppressive regime. This is a GAME not RL, as for tax in real life we pay those taxes for services provided by the state/government. The tax in this game doesn’t benefit anyone in the koh community only the one on the throne, increasing the power to ensure no one will ever stand a chance. As for you ever being able to get on the throne you’re truly deluded if you think you’ll ever achieve that, if you’re not on the throne/shrine now you will never be! Wake up and join the real world, unless you’re going to dump 1000s in the game you will NEVER be on the shrine.

    Hahaha “incentive to try and take shrine or throne” lmfao Thats got to be trolling there, how on earth does it encourage people to do the impossible 😂😂😂 Some of the people are forum will constantly support and try to rationalise the insanity of ATA logic. Hermione you’re absolutely correct, the best the average player can do is self zero themselves trying to take a shrine ☺️🤣😂

    Taxes are implemented, by and for the following reasons.
    A. By governments, to improve infrastructure, provide services etc.
    B. By Kings, dictators etc, to, allegedly, provide armies for public safety. But also for infrastructure.
    C. By ATA, who are too silly to understand the above concepts.
    You guys/girls, get paid by us, the players, to provide an entertaining game.
    However, the tyranny tax, provides none of the above.
    A. No infrastructure etc.
    B. No safety.
    C. Detracts from the entertainment value of paying customers.

    They shouldn’t listen to a guy who’s claimed to quit the game and still gets on forums to bash it anyway. I think the game is fine right now just needs to get the bugs fixed with the chat and random crashes. Once that’s fixed and back steady how it used to be then game will be great again. Shouldn’t even worry about ata it’s the players that run the realms anyway. There is a few realms who have a no zeroing policy where they top clans will gang up on u if u try to zero someone.😂 Some realms do have alliances but realms like that are the dictatorships 😂 So wouldn’t u think tyranny goes well with that? Don’t blame ata, they only give the options, it’s the players are the ones who make the choice in the end.

    Well for instance, what if ATA made a package that gave you infinite resources/tokens for 1000$. Can we not complain about that? I don’t have 1000$ to put into this game, but some people do. Because of this, why should ATA offer something that is ridiculous? Sure I guess it’s also the type of player who chooses it, but why would you not? It’s such a good bonus for the ruler - who is often the same guy over and over again. While I really can’t put the blame to ATA the first time - testing it is cool - I don’t understand why they keep up at it even when many people whine about it.

    Right now, realm 21s ruler literally says “I am going after everybody. shield up or shut up”, and no one can do anything, because the top clan is almost twice as powerful as the second one.

    Maybe because it's not a Democracy or Republic, it's Tyranny... Kinda why it's called a TYRANNY TAX! Also, if you're not on the game anymore but still on the forums you are either sad, pathetic, or a simpering troll. Just go away if you aren't playing, because you have nothing of worth to add to the dialog.
