As a group we started to track, analyse and share info with other groups about the game. The past month our group of 4 alliances only bought the very cheap specials as it has been become clear that drop rates are lower than ever & not worth the money. We recorded all summons, we were shocked. After today many was so demoralised they quit the game. People (all with money, age of 40-70) that have been playing for a year or more.
Myself? Back to old school gaming where you buy, own it & can enjoy value rather than throwing insane amounts of money into a bottomless pit.
I just bought a few oldies like StarCraft & Dungeon Keeper 3 from Steam. I’m having way more fun & much less stress for a fraction of the cost.
