In my opinion you’re wrong. P2W has never been higher now (before PU) than before but the spending habit of players was much higher before 6* toons have started. It was easier for this company to lure people into spending, because most didn’t have a clue how rigged this gambling app actually is. Also it was never a strategy game, always been a gambling app disguised as survival / strategy game. Since the company realized how much money they can make from gullible people who believe RNG works like “luck”, they focused on milking players instead of taking care of the game.
