Great game - one suggestion, PLEASE

I love your game. Been playing for over a year. Have spent more on this than any other app I have ever downloaded. One suggestion. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, add and ability to store buildings without the “store buildings” tool. I respect the genius that is the need to redesign your city to accommodate newer era buildings, but trying to do that when the expansions are so expensive to come by is SO FRUSTRATING.

Having the ability to look straight down on the city during “move” mode would be so much easier, but I expect that would be a major update, so I can live without it. However, it could be done with low graphics mode and just labels for buildings so you could look straight down and see which buildings are where and where empty spaces are. Sometimes those empty spaces are so tough to see behind other taller buildings.

MOST IMPORTANT, could you please let us store an unlimited number of buildings so that rearranging the city would be easier. I get that you want there to be a challenge to rearrange, but making it so that you don’t have room to shuffle things around is so frustrating, and almost enough to make me quit the game. I am up to the progressive era, and trying to work in the double lane roads is killer and making me want to quit. It would be so much less cumbersome if you could store a bunch of buildings and have a ton of extra space, then “tetris” your way back to a full city. Please. I am begging you.

Truly a Free to Play Game

I hope you do not think I am a paid reviewer or a friend of the game makers. I am the guys who always look at reviews, but never take the time to contribute. However, this is an extremely rare game and I wanted to help them out. Like 90% of gamers (at least mobile gamers) I am a pure free to play (f2p). I have never spent a single penny on any games. Not because I think it’s wrong, but only because I have student loans to pay off. As a f2p gamers I have spent years shuffling through the world of massive, epically, galactic, universe of garbage know as f2p games. I am convinced that historians will look back at this generation and be amazed at the vast number of absolute garbage games that were created. Furthermore, they will be correct to think that we lived in a time when it must have been totally acceptable to label a game as f2p, when it fact it was not anywhere close to being true.
Having established I understand the frustration many of you feel, please believe me when I say Forge of Empire is TRULY f2p. I have been playing for nearly a year now, and there is nothing that a money player can have, that I can’t get. Furthermore, I can be just as competitive in pvp action as anyone else. On top of that, it really is a high quality game.

Great new updates!

I love what they have done with the recent update. The z’s for buildings not in the process of production are now stationary making them much easier to see. I am a huge fan of the daily quests. Side quests and event quests have been greatly improved, causing me to play more frequently. Overall, I love this game. I have been playing for a few years now and have seen some ups and downs. I am looking forward to the new ages to come. The only thing I would like to see improved is will you PLEASE fix the fact that the app now asks me to sign in through Facebook every single time, even if I was just using it. It redirects me through the Facebook app and I have to click continue, okay, I accept, go, blah blah blah every time just to get to my city. It’s kind of annoying and makes it hard for me to quickly pick up productions or something while I’m not really actively playing at the moment. I find myself checking in less and less because of this added time for log in. Otherwise, great app. I would recommend it, just don’t ever click the log in through Facebook button or you are doomed to navigate through the outside app every time you log in.
