They're a useful prize when you've only just entered a new era and haven't researched the tech to build them yet - they become fairly obsolete later on, but then that goes for other things.Residential, Production Buildings - Never understood why they have these in GE....whats the point of giving something as a prize that can be built from the general building menu...gathering supplies/coins for them is one of the basic early challenges for beginners....such prizes only clutter up the inventory for the rest..
The "junk" is there for several reasons. Some of them are:really, gain 2 gold relics annd you get the useless ritual flame, how may do you need and how many can you place, find some real prices to win instead of all the junk you give us
I like my ritual flames, nothing better than someone in a higher era smashing their troops up against my defences and if/when they get through all they can get is a few suppliesRitual flame is JUNK will allways be JUNK and will never be a good thing to win, that has nothing to with the way you play, so you get attacked by a neighbor, if you collect on time he/she will never get anything, and if they do plunder a royal marble gate you will miss out on some coins, big deal with 4G,
actually much better is getting through it and thinking:nothing better than someone in a higher era smashing their troops up against my defences and if/when they get through all they can get is a few supplies
