Giant Mushrooms are a Rip-off
 
What is the deal with the giant mushrooms?

We never see one hit a higher level player and on more than 1 occasion it has dropped on an attacker that has already battled and was almost dead. These giant mushrooms offer no advantage as far as I can see.

They were made so guilds with extra shrooms cud use them

And about 1 never hitting a high lvl player? dats just bad luck i guess...

agree its lame but least they tried and failed instead of not trying at all

They would be much cooler if the guild leader could fire them at will only if he is watching the guild battle in real time. That would force guilds to be much more balanced :)

Giant mushrooms do hit higher level players. It is just a random number issue. Every attack has a chance of a mushroom flying, if there are any left.

They are a rip off as this post suggests. The chances they change the outcome of the battle even if the 2 guilds are equal strength are very low. Also if you use all 3 on every battle, up to 4 battles per day = 60 shrooms per day... Gifting them to a non shroomer in your guild is a much better deal and will improve your guild much more in the long run.

Well we use them to take down those 1-3 player guilds. You don't even need to attack the catapult kills them. So no they're not a "rip-off".

it does kill the player it just does 50 of players hp i agree it is a rip off but when near the top you almost have to use them because your enemy is also using them

Except you can't do this, and the top guilds often use them, sometimes taking out half the health of a very powerful player that in the past may have taken 3 people to destroy them. Now, with the mushroom hitting them, it only takes 2 (first dies and second kills).

Right, Prosperos. Which is a good slab of the reason I now stopped playing and paying...

///Hear that, Playa? I finally kept my word. I may return, and so may my hundreds of dollars worth of donations for 4 separate accounts, if things get balanced again, or you develop a counter-measure.
(I know I'm not the only paying customer, so no, I'm not holding breath.)
Cos that's just too easy a mushroom-butchery, and "Homey don't play dat" either...
It's just: 'meh, another raid, another catapult win - I'm not gonna bother, I'm not gonna play along, I'm not gonna be forced to play the way others want me to play, be they developers or philosophers... I can be very inflexible too, on certain principles...
If I can't play the way I want to, I can't play: that would be a submissive chore, or bowing to pressure - nothing 'playful' about it as far as I'm concerned. Is there?... [rhetorical #1]
I have a... stiff back, that's it... can't bow... sorry - what I can do is 'bow out,' and blow the scene, go find something else, more fun, where I can be an individual, not a sheep or a lemming.
Not being bitter, just indifferent now.///

Right, Bobo. So it's a... forced rip-off.

Playa: 'By the power of GMC, I compel you! Bow to your god, worm!'

Me: 'No. Bugger off. Find your god another worm.'

Yoink! :)

Right, BB, you can't do that. Why?
[Not asking you, BB, not every question being directed at you - this one's rhetorical...] [rhetorical #2]
