So, the month of December has probably been the unluckiest month I’ve had since I started this game in July. Or perhaps I was just extremely lucky until now.
I would say that I’m a C2P sort, only buying the occasional deal and keeping up VIP, but I splurged this past month… Nothing but what I got from the combinations of gifts and a Christmas bonus, but it was over $250 easy. More than I have ever spent in such a short time on anything that wasn’t bill related. I really enjoy this game, so I don’t have much regret spending money to support it.
I spent that much for the hopes of a couple of heroes, Arthur and Evelyn, because I mostly enjoy smashing titans in their funny looking faces. Got neither. That was pretty sad. I did get a few 4* star heroes that I was satisfied with (Merlin and Rigard to name the top two), but what surprised me the most was that I got not a single 5* out of all that summoning I did. I looked at my numbers and realized that I must have done easily over 120 summons, and now I am a little more than just sad. I’m quite possibly frustrated.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to start rambling about how unfair SG is or how I deserve to get one hero or another. But I seriously was dumbfounded. Since I’ve started in July, I’ve either been pretty lucky, or was just incredibly unlucky this past month. At this moment, I don’t know which. I have quite a handful of 5*'s:
And Lots of great 4*'s and 3*'s. All in all, I’m typically a happy player. I often save up gems for Atlantis Summons, Knights, and Guardians. I also purchase the deals (monthly budget is typically around $30-$45), so once again, was just surprised at how I received no 5* for over $250 worth of gems purchased.
Was I just extremely unlucky this time? Or have I just been extremely lucky? I know the odds, though I’m no statistician. I know what a Gatcha is (I love real life Gatchas). My faith in this game is shook. This event alone has me reconsidering so much in regards to my spending habits on this game.
Once again, I love this game. I don’t think SG “owes” me anything. I’m just feeling a little hurt this time. So much so, I’ve been only logging on once, maybe twice a day now instead of my usual eight to ten times.
Thank you to all those who have spent their quality time reading this wall of text. You didn’t have to, but I appreciate that you did.
