God, as badly as I hate to agree… The simple fact is that you can’t disagree with truth, especially when it is obvious.
I DO truly hate to complain, gripe, etc. Yet, the “Slowing New Players Down”, is true.
Over the last 2+ years, my 13 year old daughter has seen me play and FINALLY in January asked to start her own game.
(side note Since she’s been batting depression, anxiety, social anxiety, her ADHD & OCD complicating school to the point she could fail, used to be an A/B kid, when she was not in school, she’s no longer on her laptop, phone… She get’s into bed, covers her head, faces the wall… and either sleeps OR lies there.)
So, as a single mom, the fact she made an attempt to do ANYTHING new was a relief.
Problem was? And having played PS4 and Android, I’ve leveled my share, lol…
I couldn’t BELIEVE the choke hold that seems to be on new players! Even which kingdoms to unlock is controlled and I realized in a way I couldn’t advise her to work the way I did.
I never followed the hardcore players’ Strategy, lol, I just went along how I wanted… What and where I was having FUN.
(It IS a game, and I take it seriously myself, BUT, when it feels less fun and entertaining and more like a chore, responsibility (I’m looking at guilds that like boot you if you’re MIA 2-3 days, LOL, )
Then, not only am I not going to play… I’m DEFINITELY not investing $$$.
-_~ As a matter of fact, added to the injury I got from a car accident some weeks back, (broken shoulder, arm, hand…Yeesh, hurts,lol)… some of those things have stirred that dreaded, BURN OUT with a game that signals the death knell for that game.
Anyway, YIIKES, <<´´´ sry for the BOOK lengthed reply. >>
I guess that happens when I haven’t spoken up on something that drives me nuts.
I’ve tried giving 505 the benefit of the doubt… "Perhaps this leash hold on newly made accounts…is intended to make the game LAST longer, extend it’s lifespan an replay value.
