A little worried about the tracking

Although the new update has fixed a lot of the old problems I am still a little apprehensive about seeing people travel almost exclusively in straight lines down main roads and motorways and deploying upwards of 5 troops in castles along a 60km route almost daily. It is a little frustrating to have the rewards lost to vehicles, and I hope in the future there could be a way to make it so those travelling in vehicles don’t claim the land or reinforce the castles they encounter on their trips. Other than that I think it’s still a great app.

Thanks so much Hephaestus, we really appreciate your review. We had a few issues over the weekend, please update to the latest version in which these bugs are fixed.

If it’s not broke don’t fix it

This app has had a fresh update and from being a running app where you claim others land it has become like every other ‘kingdoms building’ app but with running as a side show.
You advance through ages by running in the real world collecting coins. But so far the ages all look the same visually and there appears little to no reason for the ages. As you advance through each age it resets your kingdom so you just do the same thing over and over.
I used the previous app religiously when I ran and really enjoyed ‘conquering’ my local area by finding new routes and tracks. It was the app alone that got me from doing 5km runs to doing my first marathon as I was doing longer runs to ‘conquer’ more land. Sadly the new updated game has became about winning coins and building farms,forges,blacksmiths etc.
Genuinely really disappointed as I loved the original game!!
And now they have updated the app and my era process has gone from nearly 20% down to 7%. No idea why but worst of all no idea what that means and how many ‘same as every other app’ coins I need to earn.

Updates = Start Again

I’ve stuck with this game for a very long time. It’s a game to encourage you to explore, keep running and keep your running interesting - however, I’ve lost count now when the developers have had a rethink they effectively bump you back to the beginning- but like now, I’ve still got most of my buildings. If Candy Crush did this, instead if just adding levels, there would be uproar. The players would be frustrated and eventually give up with it. I think I’m getting to that stage now. The developers need to get the fundamentals right - accurately tracking and gathering run stats and details (this was always a bit unpredictable, not sure if it’s fixed in this latest iteration). Then they need to work out how long it will take to “complete” - it should take years. The game plan needs to factor in the different types of runners - frequency, distance, improvers etc.
