All I can see when I do a new topic search is hacking this, cheating that, goodbye forever, and the endless threads about how much this person has got that and I didn’t get it and this game is rigged. Sure I’ve had my fair share of whinges and spits more than once, and I’ve seriously contemplated scaling back my involvement in this game, but all this negativity is getting exhausting.
How about all the good shit about this game?
Have a look at the new people joining. They are in a much better place than what I was when I first installed. Look how easy it is to get 5s and 6s for that matter, straight off the bat. I remember fighting for a long time with a maxed 4* team just praying that I would one day get a 5.
And then there’s this player first thing everyone is crying about. Well I tell you what, its a bloody great time to be f2p. I have spent my fair share on this game, mainly buying Konrad and Shieldschonne, but luckily not much else, and I stopped spending on pulls long before the 6’s were introduced. But now that 6’s are here, I have gotten so many 5’s that its not funny, and so many of the 5’s I’ve always wanted - even if they are outdated. But every event now potentially gives you an opportunity to pull another 5 whether it be for fodder or SR or whatever, but they are now getting pulled or given in droves. To me that feels a bit like “player first”.
Sure this game has its flaws, but in my opinion, if every one here installed this game for the first time today without knowing of its past, the opinion would be completely different.
Look at it from my perspective. Since the introduction of 6’s I have had that many 5*s that I could use them as ascendance without a second thought. Since ascending 6 toons I and now very competitive in the top 100 raid rankings, and just passed rank 150 (previously couldn’t stay at or keep spot 200). I have just recently been recruited to a faction that finished top 5 on average, last tourney was 3rd.
I believe that all this negativity is amplified by more negativity. Someone that has a gripe reads a thread where someone else is having a cry it makes them want to have a cry too. Then it just snowballs. I can see what @kalishane is trying to accomplish by deleting and closing these type threads - as it will impact the community. It will be a contributing factor this games eventual downfall, more than you realize. Its not that hard to turn things around for yourself, rather than advertising a complaint and hoping for Scopely to give you a free pass to whatever you want.
With that said, I’d like to hear some other positive examples you guys have experienced either now, before or since ascendance was introduced. It cant all be negative or no one would be still playing. I know its going to be easy to lay shit on me and turn this thread around, but please refrain.
Turn that frown upside down and share something positive!
