As many have pointed out it will take months or years to upgrade these toons based on the current cost in the SR depot. But you’re all forgetting - that’s simply not true, Spencer Tucker himself gave us a clue on how we can achieve this faster:
Audience: You’re effectively training them to keep going back.
Tucker: Refresh until you see what you want and buy the thing you want. Chasing the thing you want becomes chasing the refresh, and refreshing that box also gives you progress against some sort of milestone.
Audience: Is this all theoretical still?
Tucker: We’ll be building that. We haven’t built it yet.
Audience: Does the reset cost money?
Tucker: The reset will cost money, yes. That’s the key.
Looks like that’s no longer theoretical. As long as you pay and refresh then you can upgrade the toons more quickly, as you get freely trained by Scopely to be an obedient spender. Dog training schools cost fortunes, they are doing this training for you for free (obviously if you don’t count the money you are spending)!!!
In all seriousness though Scopely, you have ballsed up on 4 major points;
Refreshing doesn’t help if we don’t actually have the SR tokens to spend due to increased difficulty and prices.
Barely anybody will spend money on upgrading 6 star legacies now that you have released Sclass and continue to release them once every 2 weeks (despite promising not to). Shot yourself in the foot there.
Many players are either on a zpending ztrike or have left, and as said above those who are still spending will not be spending to refresh content so that they can upgrade a 6star that is outclassed by almost all the 6star premiers released in the last 4 months, let alone Sclass.
(Most importantly) The trust most players have towards Scopely is at the lowest ebb its ever been.
So your ‘training’ of us, like good little puppies, isn’t going to work. Should have had the left hand communicating with the right hand with this one.
I’ll give you kudos though - you’ve managed to condition most of your players into accepting hugely devalued prizes for the same effort produced. And considering how massively devalued they are, you have done an absolutely outstanding job there!
