I have been throughly enjoying playing War Worlds, and love having a good game on an android phone. But now, I’ve hit a game killing bug. I can’t collect taxes.
Everything in the game relies upon money. So far, it hasn’t been anything approaching a problem for me – if anything, my income exceeds my biggest spending attempts. But if you can’t collect money, how long until you simply can’t play ?
It wouldn’t be long. Rushing buildings on a planet takes a minimum of $2,200. Moving fleets to a system takes $3 – $5k each. More, if you move them from longer than one star distances. So even $2 million plus dollars will run out pretty quick. But then, there’s the question of having money on hand in case of attack. I think the realistic answer, for my empire, is not to worry about it at all because nobody is near. Still, paranoia keeps you alive in a PvP game, so the last thing I want to do is spend money with no way to replenish it.
So until/if the bug can get fixed, I am reduced to managing my sitrep and building ships. With any luck, the developer responds to my forum post and finds out what’s wrong.
