New introductions ruffle the status-quo & challenge new innovations / styles to emerge… main reason I like it, despite being at the losing end many times…
Current main COMPLAINT in the forum is about LBs. I am not in beta & have read “80%” were against LBs being written very regularly. While I know that 80% against is a false number when I take the over all 1.5 million player base into consideration, it also made me wonder, why are players against specifically Limit-Breakers…
While there is a good number on this forum that has some kind sentiments about SG being all the time after money-grab, I am unable to see any sense in, bcoz, SG & the game is a commercial enterprise, & no one is forcing anyone to spend.
I will go straight to a simple point of understanding based on my practical game play experience & how I see these on-the-way- Limit-Breakers
Since I reached 4200 TP (8 months back) I have regularly faced defence teams with 20-emblemed 5* heroes, in the War teams for sure & most of the raid defences.
Today my defence is 4550 TP.
These last 8 months my plays has been TOUGH, bcoz, dealing constantly with high emblemed heroes with my less or non emblemed heroes makes things tough. Add to that the high troops, which is the reality with high emblemed defences.
So, without LBs, myself & everyone on this forum has been playing against all kinds of defence teams with HIGH - emblems & troops. Win-loss / happy-frustrated / excited-bored, etc… has been an experience that everyone has had, me included.
I have played & had absolute FUN using many different teams / hero combos which I didn’t use earlier… I actively use more heroes today… “Its about, what I can do with my roster / inventory”… & not what I don’t have… that drives my fun / association with this game !!
Sometime back SG improved the emblem drop-rates in the game so more players have it = use it & complaints about emblems isn’t so prominent … NOW !!
Taking a cue from above, how is hero enhancement anything new…
How is the Limit-Breakers issue any different?
It is an enhancer for 3-4-5* heroes, as each player would like to use… That’s it !!
Contrary to all doomsday “for / of” the game theories, it will take time for LBs to take off & player styles to play - tackle LBs will emerge…
As simplistic as it sounds, how are LBs any different from emblems, when one sees it from a player perspective who doesn’t have them, as I am even today embleming my heroes strategically & very few above +10 emblem nodes.
I don’t complain about emblem power rampant out there
hence don’t complain about LBs, which have yet to start & will take a good amount of time to develop into teams…
Practical aspects of life / game are different from theories being spread. The 80% against figure had me
Finally, LBs are just another innovative introduction to see how meta plays out, instead of ONLY focussing on LB will create POWER imbalance & a hyper level hatred for P2P players getting some kind of imaginary advantage…
All those spender youtuber videos clearly show, they still struggle to win & regularly innovate play style more often than just paid purchase dependency to WIN in the game…
Finally, ever wondered, despite all this noise about LBs, why has SG team overlooked it all. Not bcoz, they don’t care as they have mentioned in the Q&A, they do read forum view.
However, they also have to work on game longevity, innovations to create challenge based excitements & player involvement,
while maintaining a fine-balance between pleasing old / experienced & new players.
Also, SG making money isn’t so bad, which I am sure all of us in the forum also enjoy earning / spending
I have found both SG games to be a fair play meta for all types : F2P, C2P, P2P… the grind & speed will be different…as is case with everything / everywhere…
As players of this cool game, while we have every right to be a force with our views, feedback about the game we like, we also have to be reasonable with new things / changes, which are part of the game meta, & keep coming… no matter if few want or not…!!
Look forward to a healthy discussion with some logic, possibly practical experience
not an urgency-demand to merge…
Good day !!
