Personally, apart from the Arena of Valor** rewards being not worth the time to chase, I like everything else about the revamp. Honest opinion. As a mid-level player, I can choose to keep grinding in PvP, Casual or Explore, or divert (like I do now) my time between Treasure Hunts to get gems, to then spend them on the pet offers from the Arena. It’s a game, how about some personal responsibility and making mature choices.
** The single day events are bonus chances for 1 more Orb (won’t go further than that), better than zero chance. The 3 day event I’m undecided on, since the bad payout is actually taking a slot away from weekend events all worth equivalent of 10-12 minor orbs.
All the obsessive compulsive “I’m forced to play because others can, can’t fall behind” players - here’s an IRL advice for you. Other people take 2 jobs to make ends meet. Why don’t you optimize your RL and find a night or weekend job to fill the time “because others can” so you don’t lose out huh. No pity here.
tl;dr “newer customer” here. I enjoy what I like about the game. I’ll play it until I don’t like it, then I’ll drop it and walk away instead of griefing myself and everyone else moaning every day.
