Awesome, will you quit the game so I can send my own letter of appreciation to you for doing so?
Let’s address your complaints 1 at at time to see what’s real and what might just be your personal issues with something.
- Making arena one of the major activities and pushing to play it instead of reworking its paradigm to invoke more interest in it - good decision indeed.
It’s not a major activity in the game. The devs aren’t pushing it and neither is any network or community. This is a flat out lie. Yes it was reworked to gain more interest in it and it failed for most people. But the arena events are optional and if you miss them, you aren’t being hurt. If you do enjoy the rework, you get some better rewards for playing that mode. Just because it’s in a campaign task does not make it a massive push. It’s at max 5-8 min of your time. If that’s really too much, then skip it.
**2. Creating dozens of doomed weapons and no change to upgrade in a timely fashion - way to go!
A valid argument and complaint. Hopefully this gets addressed at some point since it’s ridiculous for beginner to mid-level players who don’t have most of the doom weapons and no means to upgrade them for years. Not game breaking, but highly frustrating.
- Artificially “prolonging” dull and boring tasks of the campaign making players wait or spend diamonds to skip.
I assume you mean to the two day tasks like dungeons and AB, Treasure Hunt, and arena. The campaign is optional content. If you choose to play it, the average player completes it within two days very quickly. The forced waiting time tasks are really annoying I’ll admit, but it’s a day. Another cheap skip if you want to go that route but if you are going to play the next day anyway what does it matter? Even if you needed those skill points for GW, you would also get them by Tuesday, again no real issue except for a players impatience.
The gameplay tasks(Kill X troops, Use class Y) are easily completed by just playing the world events or some quick explore. A little out of the way but not bad for some free skill points.
- Overloading the gameplay with intersections of 3+ events in a single week - GW, World Event, Delve or whatnot - this game is not that good to spend the most of time in it.
This is highly subjective and if it’s not that good than why are you playing to begin with? The world event is very easily to complete for almost any player and high level guilds are done by Wed-Friday.
Delve events are optional and pure faction delves on weekends are even more optional. If you choose to do them that way, that’s your own choice.
GW is 5 battles, it’s not that hard to complete. If you hate GW you can play quickly, if you love GW, you don’t have a complaint then.
Invasion/Bounty/Raid. High level guilds can easily complete them by Sunday and bounty is optional. They only require weapon tier and the battles are even easier than world event.
Summary on this one. Having any one of the 3 events above is not overwhelming. If you are in a high level guild you should already be playing at that pace to complete all of these events for the high rewards. If you aren’t then why are you worrying about it? There are guilds for every play level, if playing at a high level is too much, move down. I’m sure someone could use the major orbs those events give and wouldn’t mind playing for them. I know my 30 players don’t mind.
- Almost insane demands for something that is worthless - like grinding 1000+ battles to get NOTHING instead of Epic Vault Keys
This is 100% a personal gameplay choice. YOU choose to play 1000 plus battles. The game didn’t make you do that. I almost never play hard on Vault event and in almost 2 years of gameplay I have zuul and 1.5 power orbs away from Enraged Kurandara as a VIP 0. So tell me why Vault Keys are a requirement again? This is solely a player choice, not one the game requires you do make.
- Making players pay more money just for the sake of paying more money - I know the drill, i’m VIP 16 closer to 17*
Nobody has made me or my brother spend a dime. We have almost all troops, compete well in higher bracket GW, complete any guild event nice and easy, have gems to spare, and don’t have to spend hours grinding away. Your VIP was your choice, not one the game made you make. The “I’m a paying customer” argument has no meaning with microtransactions in the gatcha genre. Ok Cool, your VIP, you just got to a point in the game I’ll also get to, but a little faster. Congrats. But no one made you do that but you.
