Just realized that War of Nations is on Android now. The money stream from IOS devices has dried up?
Out of curiosity, I installed the game on an Android tablet, and fiddle around for awhile. Apparently, the Android game has its own servers, and the worlds are entirely different, example, World 1 in Android is not the same as World 1 in IOS. I made this judgement based on my memory of the top alliances of the different worlds, or the worlds have changed so drastically that the top alliances were all knocked off the chart?
I tapped on the “Add Gold” button, and saw the bundles available for new players. If you are a new player and intend to spend some money, the USD19.99 bundle is quite a good deal– you get 4500 gold instead of the usual 2400 gold, and you get 3 Elite Recruit packs plus a lot of other goodies such as outpost teleports and so on. Wow.
It brought back a lot of memories to me, my ex-comrades, the joy of capturing my first level 34 Renegade OP, the intense wars between the top ranked alliances, and so on. Was tempted to play a bit, but finally decided against it, why go through the frustration all over again?
By the way, thanks to all the comments, I could have missed quite a fair bit by deleting them accidentally in my fight against spams on the site (it is crazy, thousands of spam comments in a day) Anyway, glad that some of you have found my WON guides useful, and hope you have better experience in the game than me.
