So it appears to me that a significant proportion of the player base seem to have utter contempt for people like me. This is expressed often in some of the YouTubers and all over the forums.
I often hear and read people feeling entitled because they have spent several thousand dollars on this game. Then people who are cheap to play or free to play seem to receive complete disrespect.
I saw someone make a comment that they should nerf Finley sarcastically because he is powerful but then go on to point out that people spent loads on pulling for Finley yet anyone who spends $10 can get the HOTM, just with contempt as if cheap to play players are somehow worse people.
I then read multiple posts of people who openly admit they spend/spent over $4000 a month/per month.
I don’t understand where these people seem to get all this money, I mean I just flat out do not make $4000 a month. I mean maybe if I pawned most of possessions and built up large credit card debt I might be able to do that the odd month.
I don’t begrudge people spending such money on this game if that is really what they want to do with their money. I do wonder though how many can actually afford it. I read one post where a guy actually seemed to imply that he had spent his food and rent money on the game to get a specific hero.
It’s just what I resent is this sheer contempt towards people who either can’t or won’t. I spend money on this game and I freely admit that but I spend what I can afford, and I just cannot afford to drop several hundred/several thousand each month.
Also I like to feel a sense of accomplishment playing a game, like I achieved something or earned it. I don’t claim to be the best player at this game, But I have overtaken lots of people who have spent a lot more on the game then me and also who have been playing it a lot longer then me. I feel a sense of achievement in that.
Hypothetically, say I suddenly came into a lot of money, new business idea that worked, massive poker win e.g. win world series, lottery win (not likely as I don’t buy tickets) etc and this makes me a millionaire, then I still could not spend thousands on the game each month purely because I would feel no sense of achievement I would not feel I had accomplished anything just that I had bought it. That’s just me though.
One alliance actually booted me a while back simply because I dared to say well I can’t afford to spend money like you.
Look each to their own I won’t tell you guys how to spend your money so please don’t tell me how to spend mine. Just please stop with the feeling of entitlement like you expect to just be able to buy being the best rather then outplay people with good strategy and plans.
Please also stop with the shear contempt of people who don’t spend large sums on the game.
