*sigh* my anti-gift account has been corrupted.. one time i forgot to say no gifts.. and get 5k cedars... bah level 9 is not big enough to be able to say no gifts
... I should of remembered..
anyway I made anti-gift account to see if the game is truly more "challenging" and.. other then Sabah being a dead place.. the difficulty is same as I had assumed.. its just a lot of waiting.. in fact it just makes the start of the game exactly like the end game.. wait days just to get the stuff to do one thing.. (as opposed to wait days for one thing to finish) - its not necessarily more fun
I will give it the one difference is, when you do finally get whatever it was your saving up for its more satisfying you got it with out a gift.. but other then that.. no real difference in "challenge" from what I noticed...
I think had I just accepted gifts the game would of been more exciting at the start to be honest, then worked in to a slow dragging boringness.. (which could really turn new players off I can say really making it always slow dragging boringness is.. well boring..)
so what the game lacks seems ot be theres nothing more to gain as you get bigger.. just wait wait wait - there needs be more to do...
but I have made a small goal I won't post that has given this run some extra worth
one question to those who do give out lots of gifts... If you are going to give gifts..it dose make me wonder why can't they just trade me the goods? why dose it need be a gift... its a little odd.. You can "give" me 10k raws but You cant trade me 1k raws?... it is a little confusing..
