So my feedback is about the daily tasks and rewards. The most important reward to get immediately after making an account is an XP reward. It boosts your hero production a lot, so If you don't get that you're automatically behind people who got it. It seems like it is not worth it to keep playing if you fail to get that. Just make a new account and hope for better luck, if not repeat.
Getting the 4x200 resources or random 1000 resource doesn't matter that much, but the next reward that has a huge impact is the culture points reward (50 culture points). Taking, for example, my PTP2x start. Got XP on the first reward, and kept playing normally. The second day I got a 4x200 resource reward. Now it comes to the third day, and I got a 50% chance to get the CP reward. If I get it, I'll be the among the first ones to settle on the server and get a nice 125% or 150% 15c, rewarding my hard work at the start and providing a bright future for my rest 137 days. But I did not get it, which meant that my settling time was postponed by around 12 hours. It meant that I was not able to get a crop at the start, because regions for other croppers were locked. So all the effort for shaving minutes off from a settling time with wise planning of building order, buying cages and cleaning oases with settlers was for nothing. It made me a little furious and frustrated, but I know it is the spirit of the game and how it works right now. But does it have to be?
My idea for the reward system would be the following: Make the first two cycles of rewards identical, so it really comes down to whoever plans his start the best. After all, this is a strategy game. For 2x and 3x servers the first cycle is in huge part, and for normal speed server, the second cycle can affect the settling speed, if you get your second CP reward on your day eight. For example first day CP, second day XP and resources on days three and four. Having CP on any other day than day one could make it so huge amount of people get the CP full at the same time (12:00 server time) so it wouldn't be optimal either.
What do you think?
