I didn't want to post this until I'd finished the purgatory - it would of just seemed like I was whining, but now I have I have a suggestion.

Please, please, please, please, please ,please, please, please, please, please, please... Dchoc take out the Small Dagger requirement for lvl 6 promotion. Even the lvl 5 one was pointless, but deliberately hitting 1-3 camps to get 150 of the little b****** when you've got 4k plus of evey troop type is not a route to happiness. I could write an evocative essay as to how off putting this tribulation is, but I can't be faffed - I've done it now, wasted about a week of game doing it and can look back on it as the barrier it is, thinking that I'm on the right side of that boredom and wondering how many people just won't bother with it.
