I should start by saying that I’ve really enjoyed playing this mobile game. I have very little time these days so it’s nice to have something I can do on the go or when I veg on the couch before bed. I’ve probably spent about $40 (primarily on 2 builder bonus) as I wanted to get my training camp and stronghold to level 20.
I understand that this game relies heavily on RNG… I’ve played games like this before and I understand that getting 5* heros is a rarity. I can deal with that.
What I’m having a difficulty with is the drop rate of some of the ascension items, specifically “Fine Gloves”. I’ve been playing for 4 months now and I’ve only received a single drop of “Fine Gloves”; essentially that means I have 8 4* heros that I’m not able to ascend to level 4. I’ve basically been sitting around the 3k mark for a month because I’ve hit this wall.
Sadly, it’s making the game less fun for me and makes me consider quitting. I understand that the devs are trying to make money, but I feel like they could be doing more to give us a better experience, especially those that have stuck with the game for months (or years). Adding an avatar shop is entirely self-serving… especially when there are fundamental aspects of the game that haven’t been fixed.
I understand that “needing that item” will make players spend real money on the game, but don’t forget that without the low-spenders and F2P players, you won’t have a community to keep the high-rollers in the game.
Thanks for reading!
