So there I was in the thick of it. I had just gotten a 1m lumber delivery from the bank for yet another upgrade. I scramble to expend my resources before the piranhas could take note, but get held up by this nonsense. At the time, I had 14 days left of elite, and the upgrade was just over 15 days. I have several years worth of timers, and the will to use them. I do not think it is right that I should be forced into paying to extend my elite, or to use timers on a build that I had planned to let run out, because my elite would run out shortly before the build finished naturally. After buying another 30 days of elite, which brought me to 44 days total, I did not have any issue with the lvl 182 castle and incubator builds because after research/construction bonus, they were down to 43 and 39 days. However, if I had only started with 12 days of elite, giving me 42 after paying out the month, would I have been required to buy another month/year of elite to start my castle upgrade without expediting my storage? It just seems a bit off to me that one need purchase more elite time to get 2 builds going when they already have over a month of it left.
Could the game not be changed to suspend the second active build if elite runs out, rather than keeping on with this foolishness?
