None of my kingdoms are pet stalled. In fact, I have 66 mythic pets. Everytime a new/old cosmetic rescue occurs on a Wed/Sat I make sure to mythic it. I’ve been in my guild for a little over a year(switched to mobile Dec 2018) and we get a good amount of pet rescues so I rarely have to worry about being pet stalled. At this point I’m only mythic stalled but I know that will come with time. Once you hit a certain level the kingdoms stars are another thing to collect and you don’t need the skill bonuses to succeed. For example we intentionally don’t complete most ET’s so we can save for a monthly gold dump.
If players are in for the long haul, none of these issues are actual issues. This game can’t be completed, only played. Eventually you can get everything. Some things will literally take years (deeds/pets), and others just require massive amounts of grinding (classes to 100/all troops). Most players don’t want to wait, which I get. But I enjoy the fact that you can’t buy your way to everything quickly. Sure you can spend gems to get classes to 100 on thur events or pure faction with gems, but that still takes time and months of persistence. I love the fact that I have zuulgoth before many of the VIPs who have been playing longer.
