So no, I won’t necessarily leave because of LB. However, if I find I can no longer play/compete with my 3/70’s - at least enough to enjoy the game - and instead feel forced to max my 5*, and out of that I become resentful and/or disinterested [with the game], then yes, I may leave.
As anyone who knows me knows: I like being able to play with ALL of my heroes. Emblems, and now LB, narrows the field of play too much [for me] imo. 4* mats are scarce enough. I want all of my 200+ 4*/5* heroes to be equally playable [from a stat PoV]. I may be able to tolerate using my 4* mats, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. & Idk, that, alone, could totally change the game for me too.
Although, before this decision was cemented, I had planned on letting my VIP lapse anyway - in about a month - and seeing how I felt then… was thinking if this game didn’t lighten up (esp where I was concerned, as besides this recent S4 craziness, my luck had been with dupes seemingly trolling me + these new additions were not looked favorable upon by me one bit), a break would be heavily warranted, especially spending. As I’ve been [slowly] burning out (again). & I still may do so… we’ll see how these next 30+ days go.
