Best game. Just a few suggestions...

This game is really awesome but i have a few suggestions... 1: Maybe instead of 1 nanopod per every hour (Talking about the hurry) maybe you should make it 1 nanopod per 2 hours. I will take away a star if that doesn't change in the next few updates. Also, about nanopods, decrease the cost of resources/troops. 1 nanopod for 25 stone/wood/etc. Maybe you should increase the resource to 100. You wont lose a star if that doesn't come though. 2:Medics and mechanics!( this is fir both of them)They cost gold, 10 merits,500 iron, and 100 wood. They unlock at level 15, take only 2 minutes to train, and they work like this: on your turn, when a soldier (NOT A VEHICLE!!!) gets hit and has lost at lease 20 hp, the medic can heal him for 1000 gold (They will take up your turn!). The medic cant fight unless its rank 4.Then it acts like the shock trooper with a boost of healing( the healing still works the same) the mechanic is the exact same only it repairs vehicles instead of healing troops. Rank 4 makes just like rank 4 medic, only instead of troops, it repairs vehicles( including helicopters, excluding ships). Please don't make any of them cost nanopods. Thats all and thank you in advance.

UPDATE: I cant load my progress from this device to the other device. Fix it!

P.S. I'll rate one star till you fix

Good game

I used to play this game on an ipod touch and i got to lv 26ish but then i was forced to quit because if the update. I didnt have to quit but the update put a bug on my device. So 1 1/2 years later i see nothing has changed at all! The only diffrence is no more events. :( so now i play in my iphone and i realized that a guild that i played with that was extremly active has fully shut down. Why? I managed to talk to tge guild leader and he said that the guid had quit the game because of lack attention. I mean come on Z2 you only got 3 games why stop with one? Any way i was disapointed to find out that i could not login to my previos acount. The reason? The server that it was on was temenaited. So i said ok i can restart. But the game made my risk all of my specs and i lost my dragoon right away. So i said"ok i can heal him right?" Wrong the coast was way above my budjet and whats up with the glitch that made the 3 "story charecters" not fight in a quest fight? I lost my gunner and morter because if that. PEOPLE THAT WERE AT LV. 150 or so quit😦 no joke. One is in my current guild. My acount name is killshot14 and i can prove that this game is fun but needs care msg me and i will show you.

Final thing i had a friend that quit the game because of a raid that took his flag then the guy stole all of his resources so he couldnt play plz dont let this happen ever again

Ok one more thing an idea is to add a space area that way pros would be challenged

Developer issues

Great game with potential! Requires lots of sp (skill point) grinding, which many players including myself do not mind. The imbalance between nanopod (IRL money) and regular units is too far fetched and benefits a more lazy player who's willing to spend money for a better unit that requires little to no leveling. Still a great game!
Developers have recently made poor choices by short changing players with boring new units and story in order to make fast money. Naval updates and story missions have been a huge upset, alongside anytime pvp. Players are leaving battle nations fast, leaving empty guilds and dead bases all over. Many players believe developers have left battle nations to work on King games which have been more profitable. (I think King bought Z2, not sure though) battle nations is unique and could be a great game with more attention to increasing the amount of quality units and special events. Tone down the obsession for limited time units and nano sales etc. put some quality time into improving the game and listening to the community. Money will come after 😉
