I had to repost because the OP included language about a gifting my account, which isn’t allowed. I wanted to be able to say bye to everyone before I leave the forum.
It’s a new year, and it’s time I spoke my truth now that I’m in a new space…I never admitted this to myself or anyone, but I went into some debt over this game because it became a coping mechanism while I was silently battling depression. No one in my family knew that I was actually plummeting money into this game to no end, they just kept unknowingly financing my habit like a gambler who has a problem. After spending multiple thousands of dollars and realizing that I was suffering depression as well as addicted to this game, I went to therapy to get my mental health back in order and I told myself that I would not spend another penny in here this year. I’m finally okay with not spending, but now I’m at the point that I just don’t even want to play anymore. I do somewhat have an emotional attachment to what I’ve built so I don’t think I can actually physically feed my heroes away, but I’m mentally there. This game has really become no fun, and as an former avid spender who takes full accountability for my indulgence, I still see how the devs have ran the well dry and pushed everyone away. The fact that people were forced to deal with nerfs for heroes they invested in, only to even pose the idea of creating costumes for some of the most OP heroes in the game was my tipping point, esp when costumes were solely created to help save S1 heroes from becoming obsolete due to the insane meta power creep. So you nerf good heroes due to “synergy imbalances” only to make already OP heroes completely broken…I know they’ve since been cancelled, but the fact that it even became a possibility shows the direction this game is surely headed in, which is inevitably not a good place. Yes, I know many of you saw this coming long before the costume moment, it was just my personal tipping point that makes me say enough is enough. I enjoyed the connections I’ve made on this forum, among the alliances I’ve participated and in Beta. Wishing you all the best for 2021.
