@Tidyup did I say I was not?
Don’t be one dimensional. And assuming things.
Given heroes left and right? Look at the big picture and evaluate the game and situation as a whole.
It’s a fact that they have no shame and their business model completely revolves around several degrees of addiction and other human flaws. Companies need revenue and profit to be healthy, but that doesn’t mean they need to be greedy and completely discard ethics. It’s like they want to milk the cow as much as possible until their business practices need to change due to future legislation.
It doesn’t change the fact that if you do the math, with the average gem/coin cost and odds, a legendary hero is more expensive than some video games. It’s pornographic.
They keep deciding to ignore player feedback and beta testers, and follow only the practices that increase their revenue and not the ones that make the customer experience better.
It’s a fact that the odds and pull mechanics of this game are a joke. And I’m giving my feedback, they lost me as a customer because they prefer keeping whales instead of a healthier player base: more players spending responsibly AND having nice consistent results. Happier players.
How many players just keep playing because they already invested big amounts of time and/or cash? Voicing their concerns and discontent while SGG does nothing to evolve?
With the amount of new heroes and events, they need to change something. It shouldn’t allow things like one gettings 87% of their pulled Legendaries being S1 heroes in the sum of all Atlantis, Valhalla, Underwild and Challenge Events pulls. It’s not good game design that the RNG allows such bad results or dry spells.
I’ve had dozens of gaming experiences, many relying on RNG for game progression and loot, and I never seen such a poor (and predatory) system.
To finish, I’m not interested in starting a discussion about this. I left my feedback and it’s something I thought about for a long time. My recent results with Avalon were just the last nail in the coffin.
And I’ll do what I feel is most responsible, voting with my wallet and not buying even the “best” deals just to save my gems for this kind of result.
A nice weekend to all. Cheers
