The developers have formed other aspects of the game that require an alliance to complete, which requires teamwork. Teamwork requires effective communication.
How do they expect us to work together to complete tasks when you need to reboot the app after battling if you want to use chat?
If you don’t reboot, you are not getting the most recent conversations. You are not getting the most recent DNA requests.
It is not an effective utility. The leader has the power to kick alliance members out, but isn’t given any relevant information about the effectiveness or activity levels of any of the alliance members. Trophy counts are static, locked to highest achieved. Once every few months trophy count is reset, that’s the best we have for an activity indication.
We must somehow coordinate outside of the game, which is nearly impossible because you can’t even post a link to your external discord server…
I wonder if they have sadistic tendencies and like to watch us falter. Maybe it’s a programming issue they can’t resolve without changing platforms. Maybe they are just too cheap to allocate resources on anything that does not have the possibility of generating income. Maybe they are just inept.
We’ll never know, because they have almost zero communication level with the players. Two, maybe three times they have used their account to actually communicate in this forum. Their communication is about as effective as the chat utility.
