I haven’t been a super long time player (1 year anniversary June 15th) but I am getting the same bordem setting in like many others.
I came in with anticipation of a fun diversion while I had some downtime from work. I throughly enjoyed the beginning and the way things went along at a fairly decent pace. I initially didn’t spend anything but got VIP and did a few pulls here and there to improve my roster.
Things moved along and I got to the point of joining an alliance. Made a ton of good gaming friends and, until recently, was in a great alliance with a solid group of players who have been feeling the same way about the game that I am - its turned into a job that I have to pay out of my own pocket to advance in. I left the alliance and just sit in my own single player alliance doing things at my own pace with no rigid war schedule or strategy to follow and hit the titan and work on team synergy, not caring if I defeat it or not…
The game still interests me but the grind for advancement is getting to be to much of a job and not a distraction from the daily grind of life. I don’t need to spend a hour farming 8-7 and quests and raiding for filling a hero or monster chest only to see food iron and 3 gems for my efforts. I’ve kept track of my loot for the last few months, besides an ocassional 4* mat outside of POV or the rare quests, I really don’t get much useful lately. With the loot being so bad for the effort I put in I made the decision to go solo for now before i make a final decision on quitting the game or to keep up the grind.
To be fair I enjoy some of the new features. The score chasing in events keeps me interested, POV was fun the 1st time but it turned into a “how many days left grinding until the 4* mats are finished”, and I’m enjoying all the new heroes and costumes that breathe more life into the old 4* roster i have maxed but stripped emblems off of for 5*.
My roster is expanding nicely with 8 maxed 5* but I’ve hit the boredom/mats wall as the rate of introduction of new heroes/costumes and the drop rate of 4* mats is way out of balance. I’m currently averaging 1-2 new 5* each month and 3-4 various 4* mats so I’m looking at 3+ months before i will likely get 3 more scopes to max Alice or magni or richard then another 3-6 months to max the other and so on. This is not including any other new 5* i run into in that time of scope chasing.
Do I want to keep grinding or just call it a day and go to another game?
Thats my dilemna right now.
