Would like to point out, that I am always in top 5 or so in my guild in both raid and invasion, as well as GW.
I have all the pets, a bunch at level 15 and most at level 10.
I have finished in top 100 for Invasions before. Always buy to at least tier 4.
I have 6 cards left to get in the game total, 2 are craft only and 1 is from vaults.
I have 29 cards that I own not at Mythic. All are max level and all are fully traited.
Yet I am only at VIP 2.
You do not have to spend anything on this game. It is not pay to win. You may have to spend some more resources in game to get places at times, but you can do everything in game with just what you get in the game.
Crying about how much its a pay to win game, shows you just want shit handed to you, and as soon as you have to do a little bit of effort to get something, you throw a tantrum.
Both Invasion and Raid were made to drain excess gems from the game, as people were saving up thousands for no reason. Pets are the same. Im sure Classes will be the same.
Stop focusing on I need everything now, and work on, what should I work on getting 1st
