Surprisingly (or maybe not) we can hear some possible future Player Council members already defending new legacy toon Romanov. Calling him a nice and solid toon, but refusing to even consider using him themselves. Is that how the Council will look like? A group of Yes man protecting companies interests?
#PU can not exist for a long period of time based on “we need a better game” idea. Its way too broad. That is why Scopely had asked for 60 days BEFORE they will change anything. So right now according to this agreement #PU should be silent for 60 days. Thats crazy. And after 60 days a new CM will promise something once again asking for a mere 60 days. Cheap tactics really.
But kudos. They just bought two months of compliance for a couple of nice words. Can a have lets say two months of SC sub for calling Scopley the best company in gaming history? Guess not.
As for “closing the gap”. And “scopely’s greed”.
The way I see it the whale part of #PU is asking for a better cannon fodder. They are just bored crushing f2p turn 1 and ask to give f2p players some toons they will crush turn 2. Maaaaybe turn 3. Tops. The same reason a cat is playing with a mouse its about to consume. If you are paying big $ you expect your fun to last a little longer.
At the same time f2p part of #PU is asking for some toons that can possibly help to WIN while facing whale defs. Sometimes. If you are lucky. But WIN. Not only provide “a better gaming experience” to the whales.
Both parts ask Scopely to fix the gap. But they are seeing the gap from different sides.
That’s why f2p part of this forum is calling Romanov trash and the whales are saying he is ok.
There is no such thing as “Scopely’s greed”. Every company is est. to make money. And really think that while they were promising us to ascend every 5* they were telling the truth. Ascend pack by pack, forming metas and offering promos as upgrades to a meta, giving you advantage if you are willing to pay for it. But with some players just throwing money at them Scopely transformed their model into: Promo’s are forming metas and legacies are just handouts to keep f2p from quiting.
Scopely as a company is not forcing you to pay, or to play. Its your own choice. But please be ready for a company (being a business) to take advantage of all your choices.
I mean if you are feeding someone with newborn infants dont expect IT to grow into a nice human being.
Thanks for reading.
