I see your point and agree. I’m squatting on about 15 maxed 5* and 40 4*. You’re absolutely right that i will probably have at least one to two maxed classes by the time you even get halfway to where I’m at. The gap wasn’t as bad in 2017. When i first started a lot of players were still trying to get maxed 5* and it wasn’t routine like it is now.
Players didn’t like that. They wanted to max 4 and 5* faster and faster, so now we have multiple ways to get more mats but some of those ways are geared towards top players or top spenders(12* titans, multiple events, seasonal quests, rare titans, atlantis chests, consistent war chests, guaranteed mat purchases, etc)
Some will consider that “the natural” growth of the of the game. But i feel the player base forced the hand of the developers. Same will happen with these class emblems. Higher players and bigger spenders will get them faster and faster and in bigger quantities before new players barely play 3 months and realize how far behind they are then simply quit.
Sucks but it’s just the road the game has gone down and will continue to go down. It’s a business. Developers are only giving players what they want. Unfortunately it’s not favorable solutions for all players.
Best things you can do to enjoy this game:
-find an alliance of players you enjoy playing with
-don’t spend unless you need to(if you’ve maxed every 4 and 5* in your roster or just can’t level them further, 1 10x pull won’t break you)
-don’t worry about the top. Just set personal goals and alliance goals such as killing higher titans, gaining more cups, winning more wars, topping your last event ranking, etc
The top will be the top. The bottom will gradually grow into the middle. But the bottom and middle will never be the top without spending enough money to put a down payment on a house or nice car.
Just the way it is.
Hope you have fun in the game for a long time. Just do you, don’t worry about everyone else
