Because its extra clicks, FoE loves to give you extra clicks, everything needs so many clicks for no reason at all but clicks.I don't understand the logic on needing to press two collect buttons in the castle daily. It's obvious if you've gone into the castle to collect you're collecting both so why make it so you have to do the same thing twice? One collect button would be sufficient.
Competitive? The castle is literally the opposite of competitive. Its just there to be there and is entirely ignorable, I like that its entirely ignorable, what's the point of rushing it? No point. I mean Inno done now a TON of updates for things no one has asked for and is entirely ignoring us, so it makes sense that we ignore their terrible new features that no one was asking for. Hundreds have already quit due to updates as well. I wish they'd start actually listening to 1% of feedback might have avoided the hundreds that have left the game.The rush satisfies our competitive nature.
It's like overtaking the car in front even though you can see the red light ahead
You are receiving goods of your age, 1 of each (times whatever multiplier - so 10 goods, 2 of each), directly into your goods inventory. FPs go directly to your FP bar.When I pick up the daily reward box from the Castle, is it stored somewhere or is it immediately consumed? It doesn't appear in the inventory but I also don't see what 5 goods I am receiving either.
You don't get equal amount of each good, but rather 1 type out of 5, like with Babel or LoA.You are receiving goods of your age, 1 of each (times whatever multiplier - so 10 goods, 2 of each), directly into your goods inventory. FPs go directly to your FP bar.
So, if you have a level 3 or 4 castle (same rewards granted), you get 10 goods of your age (2 of each) and 5 goods of the age previous (1 of each).
Oh, the exclaimation mark, as far as unclaimed chests, only appears upon server reset or logging back in (including refresing). If you look inside the castle, and then close the windows, the exclaimation mark will disappear until the next time you earn some (via silly reason such as negotiations or a battle or winning AD), or as mentioned above, if you relog/refresh your game.Weirdly, I'm not seeing the exclamation mark even when the chests actually are ready to collect
So basically it appears all the time, for as you say, silly reasons. That's the definition of bad design for an ! alert. it should be for something important that the player needs to do, not an alarm that goes off 30 times a day because of silly reasons.Oh, the exclaimation mark, ... will disappear until the next time you earn some (via silly reason such as negotiations or a battle or winning AD), or as mentioned above, if you relog/refresh your game.
Sorry, that's wrong. You do get points from winning auctions.You don't get castle points from auctions, only from buying stuff in the AD. Hence no exclamation mark from winning an auction.
I think you may have done something else that triggered the exclamation mark. You shouldn't get castle points (and exclamation marks) from the settlement.The exclamation on the cast also shows when Nothing has changed - just go into you settlement - collect something and the exclamation mark shows - it is an intermittent problem.
To confirm - open your castle - note the values - open a settlement and collect (happens sometimes without collecting) then look at your castle - an exclamation shows - but when you open it (noting the values from before) nothing new has happened!
