I don’t like how oriented towards people past about level 400 these are.
I feel like around there is where you likely have one or more of the troops needed to face the opponents. I’m very much in endgame now, and I can handle it, but if I think back to just 3 months ago I would have been pissed about these pet events.
I don’t know a solution because I like them as-is for my level of play. I’m not particularly bothered that like level ~200 or so people just can’t do it unless they have super lucky pulls: dungeons and raids and invasions already unashamedly don’t promise to be accessible to early gamers. I like that there’s a gem store and the prices are reasonable, but again: endgamers are more likely to have the kind of bankroll to play with those consistently.
So I agree to an extent: I think the stats scale a little too high. The “search” is worded as if there’s some small chance of finding the pet: maybe that’s the answer: if you lose a battle there’s some small chance you find the pet anyway and you only get one guaranteed pet per event?
It’s an interesting space.
