I have been in the game for about 6 months now. I suppose that still makes me kind of new-ish in the scope of things, but I have been fairly aggressive during this time. I often spend as much as 6 or 8 hours a day, grinding levels and earning kingdom power/stars, watching all the streams, reading the lore, trying to do the best for my guild, and all of that. I am VIP level 5, and don’t regret a penny spent. I am a long-time fan of the puzzle quest series, and RPGs in general. I hope for more puzzle quest in the future, and long life for gems of war.
That being said, clearly I am a fan, but I am wondering if I am still having fun, or if I am just doing chores. It was fun to grind my way up to level 1150, and start seeing some good rewards coming from kingdom power levels. Now that I am mostly “there” (still need a ton of mythics of course), it feels like all I am doing is delve after delve, raid boss after raid boss, tower after tower, and I’m starting to wonder what I am accomplishing.
Our guild just cleared stage 10 of invasion, and drumroll please, orb of growth. hmmm. I don’t have a single troop that I can use it on. All leveled up. So what have I accomplished? I am not sure what I can do to make myself feel like all of those hours of battling was worth my time. I guess I just want to feel like my work achieved something, saved a village, rescued a princess, or made me a hero or something. But hey, now I have a shiny green orb to add to my collection.
Sorry, I don’t mean to whine or anything, but I guess I am just wondering if there is anything more to accomplish now, story wise, or hero wise. It’s starting to feel kind of repetitive…buy a troop with gems, level it up with gems, fight a bazillion battles, and I get some loot. Next week, do it all over again. Maybe I should just play less.
