I see a lot of a common complaint that many players are getting bored with the game in regards to the game being too easy. In particular PvE, events, etc.
For sake of clarity I understand this is a different matter than getting bored from the grind, etc.
The more I thought about this the more it made me genuinely curious as to why people feel that way so this was my hope to have that open conversation. This isn’t a judgement to say anyone is playing wrong. As far as I am concerned if you’re enjoying the game you’re playing it right.
I understand the obvious that if you have a team, or multiple teams, of A+ 5* heroes with 18-20 emblems you will blow through events and province stages like a hot through . I guess the part I don’t understand is why a player, if they found it boring, would continue to use that team, or teams, everywhere.
Simply because the player has the ability to use this team why does the player use it if it renders the game boring?
The developers have created a lot of heroes at different levels in different colors. If the heroes aren’t the best heroes on your roster you can still use them. What’s the point of keeping them otherwise? For example myself and some others have created our own challenges with emblem quests with:
I guess I don’t understand why it is so crazy to make it harder on yourself if you’re bored. I think the percentage of the overall players base that has the types of teams described above is very small. I can see why there aren’t many areas outside PvP that can challenge those teams. They would be making a level that probably 90-95% of their player base can’t beat.
I do understand why people would push to reach to that level given PvP battles, titans, wars, etc. I just don’t understand the need to HAVE to use them everyone if it lessens your game enjoyment.
Most of the players at that level have paid to get there. This isn’t about saying paying in the game is right or wrong. Paying just gets you speed IMO. You get to that end game faster. My Richard +19 as a F2P is identical to someone who has paid Richard +19. They just got their faster (and also likely maxed and emblemed a different hero than Richard , anyway …). If you worked as hard as is needed to reach that level and know you’ll only use those heroes and feel bored, aren’t you racing towards and putting a lot of effort towards getting to a point you don’t want to be faster?
I would love to hear from the players who fit that mold to understand what stops them from doing more things on their end to enjoy the game. It seems a common stance is akin to “I have these super strong teams the game let me achieve it should be the developers job to challenge me”. I think that is somewhat unfair given how many variations they do give you to work with to enjoy the game if you attire feeling bored. I also don’t think the game was designed to cater to those players in terms of game play itself given the small amount of the play base actually will achieve this level in their game careers. PvP is probably the natural counter this for them to feel a challenge.
Good luck out there!
