Just played a few games (1st time) and the other players where dare I say..nice?! Asking the new players if they had any questions and not hoping all over you cause you did something stupid. I'm impressed. I can't tell you the last time I played an online game that's been out for awhile and not been told all the awfully things they've done to my mother.
Sadly I have to agree. The game is bogged down with useless game mechanics like having to send your minions to a kitchen to feed to keep combat levels high. You spend about 3/4 of your time micro managing simple tasks.
I'm about 4 hours in and it's a mess. Way to much micro management for my taste. You spend an ungodly amount of time just feeding your minions only to have them fight a few times then send them back to eat some more. Should have been called Foodpire.
