There’s nowhere that says every person in this game needs to be able to do everything all the time, but a majority of the forum feels this way for whatever reason (the 5* tourney was the most LOLtastic recent one - I only have 3* and entered a 5* tourney and am getting smashed, no fair no fair LOL).
This game’s best and most frustrating parts involve choices. Who to level, who to emblem, where to spend your WE is no different. Every long term player has had to deal with these priorities (and still do) and yes, it can can be frustrating not having enough WE to do it in the short term but even way back when I was level 30 I was able to handle these things with a little timing and hedging. Just let that monster chest sit idle and focus on these quests (which fill that chest anyways).
I’m cheap to play, and this new content and all these things to do keep me engaged and still spending (cheaply), which is kind of the point for SGG in making money (keep playing and spending).
