Move on and find another game. One week is bad enough... any more than that and after 5 years of 'fun' I'm closing casa del Richaldo.
I've literally stopped attacking. GR and the Armory have killed it for me. Attack a blinged-out gold base with a ton of glowing crap for a chance at 300k alloy to grind for a 6.5 million turret upgrade? Then wait hours for my air support to rebuild to try again for similar chances? Hahaha. No.
The one and only reason I stay in now is for squad wars and my squad. Our squad won our last war and I got 6 million alloy in the prize crate. I have a turret upgrading, then just one more burst turret to do after that. So rather than grind meaninglessly or get attacked and lose it all, I just purchased a week of protection with the crystals I already had in stock. Now I can take a week off checking my base, upgrade my last burst turret and finish them all off. I still have 4 sonics to upgrade, but that upgrade is meaningless anyway as it doesn't increase damage, so they can stay Level 10.
In other words, I'm done now. Both dekas are over Level 40, all major units researched to Prestige, and all useful turrets will soon be Prestige. No reason to grind, no reason to attack anymore.
When I started on iOS/Android my first Rebel base on Aug/2016, my goal was get HQ 8 and stay at HQ 8 and play for fun. I should have kept at HQ 8 and don't upgrade it to the hell of Prestige and now get stuck and idle because Prestige sucks and game is near unplayable at Prestige.
When I started on iOS/Android my first Imperial base at the Windows closing announcement (Jun/2017), my goal was get the crystal compensation and build a better base than I had on Windows, and now it's done, and I still have 61k crystals to burn.
As dual faction player, I'm getting tired of creating new bases everytime game gets unplayable for some of them, Imperial and Rebel, due to changes like turrets nerf, buff/nerf units, CNFO, bugs and stupid matchmaking that makes impossible win if you have to attack rivals 3 levels above.
I was waiting for the MTT event for maybe a last breath of fun for my two Prestige bases, but if things don't get fixed when the Event starts, I will retire both from PvP, reduce these bases to feeders as I am not interested in play wars as I am the only Prestige in my squad of newbies, and it would be a massacre if I put my Prestige in war along with a bunch of HQ 5 to 7.
I like helping squads and training players, I've been doing this since my last year on Windows. I will keep doing it while I still can play with my HQ 7 and HQ 8 for fun. Probably I'll be around when they pull the plug to turn off the lights.
