Is it me or is the game tedious now. I’ve been playing since it came out on Steam, have it on my phone/pc, play daily and now I feel like there’s no advancement or it takes such an insane amount of time its irritating. I have put a few thousand gems into acquiring keys and such since the change and I cannot get the stones I need to update my core team traits (I know I can fight a few thousand challenges or whatever to get them, no thanks). I like traits, but I do not like the tedium of getting them. I’ve spent my share on the game since I started and admit I’ve slowed down considerably, in my opinion the prices aren’t worth what you receive. I do like the subscription package and I would probably purchase regularly, but the others don’t even get a glance from me. There is also the fact of the gem nerfs, it was really irritating to push to get all those rewards and watch them disappear.
I think the developers should do a stone upgrade system, similar to troops or even trading colors to get what you want, it would make the game flow much nicer. Even if it was a two for 1 scenario or something similar it would allow a player to update the troops they wanted to.
