Currently in the shop I have a very highly-priced offer for outdated toons. That aside, the fact that the offer only contains a fraction of the gear needed to max them is a small reflection on why I am growing tired of this game very quickly.
I have played pretty much since the start and every day I find myself getting less active and less stimulated by the game. I used to pull for toons like crazy but now it takes weeks and weeks to get close to maxing new characters cos of the ridiculous gear drought. The amount required per toon is way out of kilter with the rate that the gear is obtainable. At this rate I would have to grind for well over a year to max all my 6* and that doesn’t even account for AR trainers let alone new additions to the roster.
New content is welcomed but grows tiresome as quickly as it arrives and the general excitement of the game is wearing off more and more with each day.
Everything is dictated by endless solo event milestones, faction events grow more and more sporadic, the power creep is continually managed only by the 100s of “incredible offers” that appear in the shop on a regular, predictable cycle and event rewards grow weaker and weaker with each week. The average top 3 solo event reward would cost you less than a beer and save a day or two worth of grinding.
I had a clear out of my old phone data recently and found some pictures and screenshots from the game back in the day. It brought back memories of how much more exciting things used to be…playing for fun and not through habit.
