LOL I haven’t even attempted the first stage of ninja tower. I read enough here to know that it’s not worth my time.
“Do not complain”
I am allowed to complain. I spent money on this game. I’ve been playing for 2 years. I have every right to complain about anything I feel like complaining about.
“Be patient and learn”
2 years is not patient enough?
And I’m getting really sick and tired of people telling me I need to learn how to play tiles better… it’s not rocket science. Anyone with half a brain can figure out how to make decent tile combos. But only if those tiles exist in the first place. When you go in with a starting board that has less than 3 tiles of your needed color, and you get rid of 20+ tiles of other colors and still only get 2 more tiles of the needed color, and they’re not even close to each other… and then your board resets itself 3 times because you have no remaining matches… and your team is dying before you’re able to even charge up a single special skill…
That’s RNG. I’m sorry, but no amount of “tile matching skillz” in the world can overcome horrible boards. Especially not when you’re attacking opponents that can one shot your heroes every couple of turns.
Now, that might not all be directly relevant to ninja tower itself. Though I suspect that it probably is. If it’s anything like ToL… which I have completed twice, for the record… it basically comes down to needing a very good bench, burning quite a few battle items, and hoping that you don’t get a godawful board along the way…
… and after all of that, your reward is…?
- not worth all the battle items I burned
- Dawa (all of the above)
Nooooooo thank you.
The heroes and new troops look kind of cool, but I’m going to just put them away in the “mostly P2W unless I get really lucky” box and write off the event itself as another epic fail where the effort/money required to complete it far outweighs the potential benefits, and send it directly back to the same fresh hell from whence Goblin Balloon and Tavern of Legends were spawned.
As for this whole idea of “it’s cool to play events just for fun, even if the loot sucks!”
That would be all well and good if it didn’t require having good loot in the first place to be able to complete them. Which in this case… nooooo. It’s just yet another SG carnival game where we’re expected to spend $50 to try to win a $3 stuffed animal prize.
Seriously. Same as I said about Boblin Galloon, if you want those items in it? Just buy them from the regular shop, don’t waste your money on the balloon.
If you want fancy ninja heroes, don’t go wasting hours and dozens of battle items. Just buy some gems and summon for them.
Ordinarily I would be the last person to say that… I’m all for “free” rewards that you can work for. But each new portal they release is just getting worse and worse in terms of effort vs. reward. Tell me why in the hell would I go to the time and effort and trouble and burning battle items to complete 50 stages of a quest just for 1 free summon? Seriously, why? Because you say it’s “fun”? It doesn’t sound like most people are having much “fun”. And the rate of rewards vs. time and battle items invested just sounds epically awful even by E&P standards.
