I agree that the 6*s are too powerful.
I’d like to know the idea behind the powerboost.
Obviously Scopley are a business and wants to make money…
With the increase you are pretty much eliminating your F2P’s and many paying players. Which will further push away all players in the future and slowly kill the game. 5s are absolutely useless against 6s at tier 3.
There may have been theory’s like “people aren’t buying 6s anymore…let’s make a change to make them” this isn’t a great solution to a problem Scopley made.
There wasn’t enough preparation. Food, 5s and Xp should have been considered. With more levels and more characters to level…more resources were needed.
Not everyone was going to throw away 8 of there characters unless they were dupes. With not much warning many sold these at the Supply Depot months before.
Even spenders were not prepared for the speed at which the 6* revolution traveled.
Players were also worried about the power creep and faster ARs. If Scopley came out and addressed the issue somewhat by stating minimum AP for 6s etc you would have had more players make a move.
With not many options and not enough 5 Benedicts to go around players were bound to put 5s in teams to fill;…but now this has become pointless.
Also did anyone think of new players and regions. Sure you have whales who will buy 6s and trainers etc…
About those who spend but not in the thousands everyweek…they won’t be able to keep up in new regions never mind F2Ps…
They help your profits too.
Tier 4 still isn’t out to most…when it does…wow…
The plan doesn’t seem thought through, doesn’t seem to look to the future and seems a obvious pay or don’t play strategy that won’t pay off in the long term.
Many members have quit, many more are likely to, new members will be instantly put off.
What was the thinking behind the idea?
Did the decision makers think players would be pleased?
For a temporary profit gain…is it worth destroying your game and your user base you advertised for?
Is there a plan for the future of the game?
When will basic gameplay features be expanded upon to better the game experience…like Supply Depot, museum, town expansion, world map, team organisation etc…
