this serves as an honest feedback from an active player concerning a big frustration which could easely be turned into satisfaction.
now in advance i want to establish that we pretty much all know this game is in the Pay to Win and the players who pump in the most cash will get the best stuff…how else with RNG summons can one explain how high tier players get the best new 5* and lvl it up immediatly including fully equipping them with all emblems.
while those players will probably give SG a good revenue, in my opinion they make a big mistake and overlook the “normal” players who like to play this game but don’t have that much money to spend on it.
I count myself to the latter group and am currently so frustrated with the results of my buys, that i am contemplating not spending another cent on anything…and thats a bit sad.
A game should serve a single pourpose…to give a fun distraction from every day life.
However a big part towards the fun of a game like this is a good reward for the hard work.
For example: I try to beat the Ninja tower every time and usually do so, but especially the last levels are good challenge. After spending quite a few hours on this challenge and gathering up the ninja coins for 3 hard earned pulls…what do i get? s1 3* heroes…and thats not fun at all.
another example: I beat the Valhalla event on both hard and regular and then spent all the coins i gathered for in the end for about 15 pulls and i got exactly 1 5*…Norns…meh.
and so it continues with season 4…i beat the stages, gather coins do pulls and so far only 1 s4 4*…while i face other players in raids with immediatly owning fully leveld and emblemed new s4 5*.
it just doenst feel good or rewarding…like i do all the work to get the coins and pull crap while those invest an untold amount in cash on gems to do 10 or 30x pulls get all the new and exciting stuff.
so how to best solve this to give not so wealthy players a good and fair experience while not making pulls too easy:
make it so pulls from the specific coins (be it an event or season) will always result in a hero from that event. the chances to pull a legendary would remain but it would give you guaranteed an event hero and not a boring s1 hero.
pulls by gems will still result in s1 heroes in the summoning pool to make it more fair.
this way it wouldnt be too easy to pull the good new heroes but it would give the players who dont have that much cash to invest a good experience for their hard earned coins.
and i’m sure that it would be more attractive this way for these players to invest some on those 1-2$ deals for coins if they know they will get an event hero even if its a 3*.
A satisfied and happy player is more likely to keep playing the game and invest regularly rather than stop investing or even quitting out of frustration for getting crap all the time.
