Well in fairness, I haven’t been playing for 3 years. Only about 20 months thus far.
And yes, they have made some improvements to the game. Certain things are less glitchy than they were before… like, I no longer have windmills swirling over my crafting forge, so that’s a plus.
And they have certainly added a whole bunch of new content and stuff to do. A few more ways for FTP players to get some free vanilla heroes. That’s all good.
But… a few small caveats here…
Most of the new updates actually lower the odds of pulling good heroes.
Most of the new updates are mainly intended to stimulate further spending on the game.
Which is fine… capitalism and all. SG devs have bills to pay just like the rest of us, right?
The updates that are/were mostly “intended” to bring more balance to the game? Well we’ve already seen where that goes.
Early spenders mad because new heroes making their heroes obsolete
New and continuing spenders mad about proposed nerfs to heroes they already paid for
Low and non-spenders just mad in general because we can’t afford any of the heroes y’all are arguing over
All players mad because of perceived nerfs to their boards and/or loot in general, whether real or imagined
So much extra new content?
Super active players: “Cool! Now I finally have a good reason to play this game 24/7!”
More casual players: “Are you freaking kidding me? I already have a full time job.”
Both active and casual players: “I don’t have enough world energy to complete all of these things every day. This wouldn’t happen to be a clever ploy to get us to start buying refill flasks, would it?”
IMO QoL improvements that include additional game content that also requires additional world energy to complete should also come with additional world energy, so that one is not required to choose between calling in sick at work, drinking 3 pots of coffee a day to stay awake, or buying WE refills. But that’s just me, and many people here oftentimes tell me I’m wrong. “Those who are most dedicated and spend the most and play the most deserve to have the most stuffs, either get on board with that and start spending and stop sleeping or STFU and accept your plebian status, you filthy cheap casual noob.” Right… right… I get it. I am not worthy.
Silly me, I’ve been playing this game as if it were just a “game”. I should never expect to have the same perks as someone who has spent 10x as much time and money on the game as I have. Fair enough, good sir! Hence why I have gladly accepted my permanent role as a mid-tier player. Just that, with all due respect, I think you and I might have a few disagreements on the exact definition of “quality of life”.
