I think that this proves the point that there are so many ways to play and enjoy the game.
The three bits of regular content I enjoy the most are Raids, War and Raid Tournaments. PoV now as well. Events I just complete, I tried competing once and fell just outside decent loot and didn’t enjoy the experience. (Caveat on Raids, enjoyment declined with Telluria domination, I find the lack of variety tedious)
100% agree that I don’t want to be on 14* titans, they don’t allow for relaxed play. 9* & 10* allow you to last 90 seconds without resorting to too many materials
I have “stepped back” several times and my time commitment didn’t go down. Now that I am utterly bored with farming and feeling less joy as more things feel like obligations my time logged on has fallen sharply.
As founder of my alliance I feel a strong sense of obligation there and I don’t think I would enjoy 1 person wars nor single person titans so I need to be in an alliance.
I am trying to / need to take a personal inventory of which parts of the game I actually enjoy and which parts are compulsions that lead to negative emotions.
