Last Update: Taking this complaint to SG directly. Thanks to the ones that offered a different perspective to the raid experience.

PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS IS A “COMPLAINT” ABOUT THE RAID SYSTEM, AND SG CAN HELP TO ADJUST AND IMPROVE USER GAME EXPERIENCE FOR ALL.
If anyone interpret this post of my experience as just whining about losing (or on who cares cups), then please keep the mindless comments to yourselves. Telling me to play or get lost is OFFENSIVE and INSULTING to me and the intelligent, literate and friendly folks who are actually offering sound advice. —TAG MODERATORS.—
Now, back to the kind listeners here.
It’s hard to level up a hero to max ascension level without spending money—I need higher levels of buildings for iron, food, storages, training, that takes longer days to complete, and losing these essential resources on a daily basis to players that I can’t successfully revenge and take them back is sabotaging my game experience.
I have been playing this game for a few years, and wouldn’t stay if it wasn’t fun at all. However, seeing how SG is allowing players with +19, 20 talent grid teams to continuously raid abuse players’ team like mine having a hard time obtaining the emblems- and it requires so much of them for higher levels of talent grids- I feel hopeless on ever being able to enjoy a fair pvp in this game.
The 7-day raid shield costs 1000 gems- that is hard to accumulate without real money- and has a cool down period, which I get severely raided during the cd and lose even more resources!!! Also, the required items to reach max ascension level are incredibly difficult to farm. Took months to finally collected everything to ascend my Kuchen, and now grinding daily trying to level him to the max—I love this guy on my team.
I want to opt out for raid, and SG should allow players to choose to opt out.
I am not able to post new comment in SG’s support forum about my complaint and request for a solution, then I found this Complaints forum where surprisingly I’m able to post. I am still trying to repost my complaint to SG but it’s not working yet.
This is my shoutout to SG—Please read the complaint and understand the cause of frustration and have the courtesy to offer a reasonable solution for players like me that have spent real money but instead of getting lucky on better gaming experience got spanked hard and left with defenseless teams.
