Hi everyone Thank you for being such a helpful and active community!
I have begun playing not too long ago, and slowly making my way through the game. I have greatly enjoyed myself so far, aside the small things here and there.
But I am wondering, how the rest of you ‘deal’ with all the deals in game, that pop up? (that require for you to spend real life money on various items, that is)
As I gain more knowledge of the game, I find myself growing more and more discouraged.
I see a pattern, but perhaps I am wrong.
At first I thought the deals were mostly centered around gems, to ‘boost your luck’, in terms of summoning the best heroes. I was not against this, or discouraged by it - I merely thought, each to their own, I will get my heroes in time, and one day I shall stop struggling to get above silver in tournaments (I still have 3 stars) All in time.
But it also appears, that the dropchance of materials to level the heroes are increasingly low, and in turn, they show up as offers that you buy with your real life money instead.
I really dislike that whole thing. It´s probably the foundation and pillars, of which this game was built upon, and ideally, I wish a game like Empires and Puzzles existed, without pay2win, so we were all equal, aside the RNG-summons, but here we are. And I am not naive, I have no expectations of things to change.
I think I can get a lot of joy of of this game as a whole, I already look forward to the snowy decorations in my base at Christmas time, and to grow up! And I love connecting with the community. I still need to find an active alliance for newer players, and I really look forward to that too.
I worry I will get ‘sucked’ into this, and I already feel tempted at all of these deals, in particular for ascension materials. I have not got the budget to just go ahead and go nuts and spend a lot of cash, and even though I am no ‘gambler’, I think I could easily become one, if I am not careful.
I already stare at my beloved only 4 star hero, that is stuck at her level. I see those deals and go “Oh, just this one time, wouldn´t that be nice…” , you know?
Right, enough wall of text, that was just a bit of background from me!
I hope to hear your input, and perhaps gain some insight into how you feel, and how you do it
Thank you for reading and sharing and happy gaming to all.
