We are a small guild with 22 members. 22 ACTIVE members! First Narcia was a learning curve for everyone, as would be expected. We figured things out a bit but all in all we ended the season feeling good about the mode and eager for the next season.
2nd Narcia there were improvements made, a bet confusing but still a great concept. Again we were a bit smaller guild only having had 16 active members at that time, but we all work together, have member from all over the world to make this event fun for us. We ended Narcia in 2nd place for the bracket we were in and came away with a feeling of confidence for a job well done against guilds that were 3 times our size.
Now comes the 3rd installment of Narcia and I am absolutely perplexed about how IGG does the matching up of guilds to compete against each other. We have 22 members! Our might is 11.7 Mil and we are ranked 357. How does a guild our size get sandwiched between 2 top 5 guilds and be expected to participate in the event? The guild we lost to in our bracket for the last Narcia is stationed behind us on the edge of the map. THEY cannot even move to get to a town since they have a 4 minute March to the town, we have a minute March and Evolution has about a 61 second march. Evolution being top 5.
IGG really needs to figure out how to make this game mode competitive but fair to everyone that puts the time into the game. I'd say roughly 85% (possibly more) of our members spend money on this game and I can honestly say with how this Narcia seeding bracket went, and us probably spending the next 5 days watching this play out instead of participating, I don't know if ANY of us will feel like spending money any time soon. This needs to be fixed!
