I thought I’d try to get used to the new speed change in 1.0.7, but after a number of battles with it: I can’t. No, this sucks. There are a lot of changes I like in 1.0.7, and a lot I dislike, but this change is so terrible it actually makes me angry. Seriously, a full 10 on the Nicki Minaj rage scale. I am well and truly POed.
One of the worst thing about it is, it doesn’t even improve pacing like it set out to do! I just dealt with an extremely frustrating battle against a Venoxia-heavy team (the way he and the Webspinner have been buffed by the other changes is beyond bad, but that’s a rant for another thread), and the battle was a protracted nightmare where the Venoxias went off again and again; the speed change had zero real impact.
I’m almost tempted to put the game down for a few weeks and leave it completely till this is patched, and that sucks because I know that whenever the developers finally deal with this and make the speed change optional, like they should have from the outset, I’ll have to wait for however long the app store takes to review the patch.
Devs, please patch this post haste. Like yesterday. I’m not talking about reverting the change, but just making it optional. This CANNOT wait till 1.0.8. We need it immediately. You’re going to lose loyal players over this.
Everyone else, dogpile on and make your voice heard.
