Fun and all, but I hate when I get my leg taken out. Then I can do nothing except wait for death.

The game's pretty good, love the gameplay and the music is awesome. I do however have a little problem connecting with Facebook to get the daily reward. Any idea on what the problem might be? When I press "connect" in the little pop up window it sends me to a page of that tells me to close the window again and everything is ok. When I press "no thanks" the game itself is stuck on connecting to facebook.

This is a really great game with tons of potential. I enjoyed playing it quite a bit. I've spent countless hours playing because I really enjoyed battling other players Gladiators. However, I find the ranking system to be bugged. It takes forever to be able to find a match where I can just fight another players gladiators. And recently the top 10 ranked players scores are a bit absurd. The #10 has 5k points while the #1 has over 1 billion.

The market place was a bit annoying. I really liked the various item rankings, but I found it was a bit off and too random at times. The prices for the items were random as well. A helmet or piece of equipment that would be better quality might go for 10k while a higher ranked item goes for 30k but is poor quality. The items quality should grow with the players level. If I'm level 60 and I'm still using equipment that a level 40 has then something needs to be changed there. I understand the fact that you have the bronze, silver and gold bars for players to win or purchase to have higher quality items but there should still be a level of standard that evolves with the players level even after you beat Rome.

Buying a slave thats a level 30-40s is the definition of insanity. You can't realistically purchase a higher level slave with how the economy of this game works. Why would I want to spend a million gold for one slave that's level 40? Level 60 was usually over 3 million in gold. When would anyone ever get that much gold when the most you get from a fight is 5k + some kind of equipment.

Everything being said this is a quality game. I personally love games with Gladiators. And I would say this is by far the best Gladiator game I've seen online in ages.
Some ideas for you to think about:

You should experiment with having animals to kill such as Lions, Bears, etc. There were many kinds of Gladiators during the Roman Ages. Some that only killed wild beasts.

Have a how long can you last/survival option against said beasts or other Gladiators.

Naval battles: They did have some naval battles in the Colloseum. I know this would be alot of work to do but it would be wonderful to see something like that. I'm sure people would like to see chariots and some kind of formation that could be created by your Gladiators as well. Even if this was a separate game, I would absolutely play a game like that for hours and hours.
