Wasting Gold on Workers

  • According to Support this isn't actually it is a bug, the game is designed to waste your gold.


    If you decide to open a worker slot using gold and then at some point you, or someone else in the association, dismiss a worker, for any reason at all, the slot will close and you will have to use more gold reopening the slot. Surely this isn't how it should be?

  • With gold you open the slot for a single use, not permanently, which means that once the worker is gone, for whatever reason, the slot is gone too.

    In my opinion a bought slot should be valid for 24 hours. If you buy a slot with 50 gold. Another worker is valid e.g. 4 hours and your association misses the worker the slot is bought for. You lose after the 4 hours that bought slot, that isn't correct.

    If a turtle doesn’t have a shell, is he homeless or naked?

  • My experiences:

    If your asso has opened the 3rd slot with Gold there are 2 possibillities when your asso will dismiss a worker:

    1. If the asso has only 1 or 2 worker(s) and so the 3rd slot isn't used, then it doesn't mind, the 3rd slot will still be open ;)

    2. If the asso has already 3 workers, then the 3rd slot will be closed, and your asso need to use some gold to open it again.

  • You have it right DSnepke, that's my experience too

    There are 2 ways to get the third worker slot.

    1 Level the HQ to level 13, then the slot is always available

    2 buy it with gold and then the slot is open till it is used, and even when you have it only 5 min in use, it is still used and gone again, so very important if you want to dismiss a worker dismiss it before the auction ends where you bought the thirs slot for, so it stays open.

    This is correct, but it doesn't say when purchasing that the slot is only opened temporarily. This should be made clearer.

  • This whole 3rd slot system needs to be fixed. It is broken and unfair!!!


    - Make it valid for at least 24 hours, or better yet 48. Not just 1 minute which happens all too often. All corp members constantly need to bid on any workers, for achievements & for medals. The 50 gold is therefore almost ALWAYS wasted on a worthless worker, or only used for 1 minute!


    - Allow officers to block bids on specific workers, to avoid the problem described above.


    - Allow earlier permanent open 3rd slot, at Corp level 11, or 9 even. For most 13 is impossible to ever achieve.

    AND because of the current Pre-registered 25 person corps, they have a huge advantage right away in era's 1, 2 & 3 compared to the somewhat smaller corps, who will never be able to use the 3rd slot, or not until era's 5 or 6.

    Why why why give the largest pre-registered corps a huge advantage over the smaller corps, especially in early era's?

    It is simply not needed, and makes the game completely unfair right from the beginning!


    - Make it cheaper to unlock (25 gold instead of 50). Right now, the 50 is almost never used, because it is usually just wasted or too expensive to keep opening, and the largest corps don't need to spend at all (permanently open).

    So this current system is only sucking gold out of the smaller corps and smaller players.. which is just a shi**y way to treat the bottom 90% of your players.

    If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much!

  • A bought slot should be at least stay open for 24 hours.

    e.g. you have two workers and need to open the third slot with gold to get the one you want to have also. One worker is still valid for 10 hours and the second worker will expire in two hours.

    You are succesfull with buying the worker you opened the slot for. After two hours when the second worker you had will expire than also the bought slot is gone.

    In my opinion 50 gold is a lot of money just to open it for this short time, therefore the third slot shoud stay open for 24 hours, this is the time a worker is valid.

  • If you buy a worker slot for gold, there is a pop up that says you will unlock this slot only temporarily for only one worker :)

    24 hours is also temporarily

  • I think the main fix would be to have the slot assigned to the worker bought in it. So that if people get rid of another worker, they get the slot back, but if they get rid of the worker bought with the slot, it disappears.


    Would be much fairer and more logical.
