Exactly. I think that’s the best way to put it.
Fair point, but you know what I mean, man. Guilds like yours or people that have been playing forever like Tacet. You guys got the resources to burn, if you want to. I mean, you have Zuul already, so you know what I’m saying. Lol.
But, yeah, you’re right, it’s a War. The Publisher on one side, people like Tacet and players with even bigger reserves on the other. So, they try to “persuade” you guys to spend your build ups like crazy on these glorified Lottery Tickets to try and “balance the economy”, and get you all down here with the rest of us.
And meanwhile, while that’s going on, the rest of us are struggling just to get things like the Siegebreaker just to give us a Snowball’s chance in Invasions. And, some people don’t even have that to spend. They lucky if they just got the Dragon Armor last week after playing for a month or more. Let alone even think about trying to do Events.
For the record, I say “Rest of Us” and include myself, because while I was in a Top Guild for over a year, it wasnt one of thee Top Guilds. And, I was playing only a little while before Raids and Invasions came in.
Basically, I had just finally got all my troops leveled up and most of them traited before the crap hit the fan. As far as Glory and Gems go, I “wasted” them getting Mythics, because I thought “Hey, I can spend a little extra this week, I’ll just make it back next week.” Well, then everything changed when the Publisher attacked! (Sorry, Avatar: The Last Airbender reference lol).
Nowadays, I’m doing okay only because I stopped playing the game. Well, stopped play anything that cost more than it’s worth. So… 75% or more of the current game? Lol. But, yeah, I’m only “okay” now because I quit playing the game they wanted me to play (ie, burn through all my resources and spend real money).
But not every one has that “sense” or that ability. Especially, New players. Trying to play in this new Gems of War is grueling, at best. I know, because I made another account and it’s hard for me… And I know what I’m doing, because I’ve played this before. So, I have a better understanding of what to do and not to do. But, true newbies? The ones that have never touched this game before in their life? I don’t know how they do it.
I’d be surprised if I played for more than a couple weeks in this current Gems of War, as a “true noob”. Ugh.
