S class making up for lost profits

Players United hit scopely where it hurts and as such they needed to figure out a way to make up for that loss so when their quarterly revenues come up, it’s all good.

In the old system, you could do a single pull and get the toon, lets say it took an average of three 40 pulls, at $100 a 40 pull that is $300 meanwhile s class costs thousands, then they changed it and made it so you need to sacrifice two fully maxed 6* toons and get said items to get the s class. The s class toons will come out at 2 a month, the day before war as all promos have like always and people now have to rush level two 6* and the s class toon to be ready for war and since people in rts are addicts, this they will do. Also take into account all the trainers, medals, food, gear, coining the weapon crafting, etc that will happen just to get the s class toon to a level to be able to “compete”

If we can watch the monthly or quarterly revenue and compare to when PU started till now that would be great, sorry but the rank on google play store doesnt matter, scopely and the shareholders dont care if they are rank 1 or rank 500, as long as that money is coming in and i think with this new system for s class which has/will reset rosters, wait till we get an s class like zach or dr stevens :roll_eyes: that scopely is making the same if not more that ever.

Imho s class toons are here to stay and will be replacing the normal 2 a month promo release we have had and it will be soon and as such i feel we should just rip the bandaid off and get it over with. We can continue the old system and have more powerful promo s class toons that people will spend on, if we have a gap of those with s class and those without s class, i dont see this game lasting much longer. I think s class should be attainable thru grinding, legacies should become s class cause the last few legacies have been :poop: as is but compared to s class i might as well use 3* toons. War wheels should have s class toons, no more bryans, kals, vincents! Make war great again! Leagues store should have an exclusive s class toon. No need to milk more money by needing us to sacrifice two 6* toons for an s class. And since you decided to do a shard system (ice cream, keys, cake, etc) you need to make the shards the same, this will close the gap of those with and those without s class toons and help the game continue on a bit longer cause as i see it now, people wanna quit and are giving scopely a deadline of the 26th. I dont like the waiting game and personally i have lost hope in everything and would like some re assurance that rts is going to start going in the right direction and the only way i see that tbh is to address s class, the token wheels are great, the fact we can see the stats of our team now cause it counts weapona, mods and lead skills is great, everything else was :poop: the depot for example. S class tho imho is the elephant in the room, lets discuss it.

TL;DR :man_shrugging:

One of your polls makes a good point. I don’t see why we need keys, cones, and cakes and whatever other shard type they will give with future s class. All s class should be using the same item/shard type. They are already hard enough to get.

Let’s address the real elephant in the room…

Dem dual specialists! Woooweee that idea lasted a long time.

Yup and honestly only axel is worth a damn but with s class toons, no point in having anything but s class imo so inless they are made s class, the duel specialists are useless pretty much.

And lol at anyone who thinks s class toons will stop at leaders or wont replace the promos and be pumped out at 2 a month to make up for lost profit.

Yes. There was, and still, just, is potential for it to be a slow, clever, phase out of 6*, but if more continue to come out at breakneck speed, then it is a reset.

In theory, not in practice. They are making far less overall from S-Class than before PU and S-Class. S-Class as it’s currently being handled isn’t sustainable.

*Flashes F2P pass*

I personally don’t mind the collection system, but it all depends how quickly Scopely wants to rush this out. Daily roadmap need to be kept, milestones need to start. The amounts in these have to be higher. 4 keys for a stage when Pete is 11k. That won’t do.

One collectable for each trait they can still do. Or, if they continue down a collectable for each S-Class, have a neutral collection currency that you can acquire, you can then convert into the S-Class collectable you’re saving up and prioritising.

Like dynamite in a sandcastle.

No. Personally they should have 1 S-Class per team. That way they can profit from S-Class sales AND profit from 6* sales. Spenders will buy the S-Class to define their team, they’ll then buy new promo 6*s that compliment it.

Not yet. Keep with collections ideally. But again, if they start flooding the game via the store with S-Class, that should go to the wider game.

Personally no. Legacies are rather cursed lol. Just make new toons and dish them out properly. I fear legacy S-Class will be subpar.

No.

Some improvements. Still waiting on gameplay improvements, still waiting to ensure 6* mistakes aren’t replicated with S-Class, and of couse the greater communication.

Yes. It only takes Scopely to realise they’re doing wrong, even by their own profits, and most things can be easily rectified. Especially if S-Class was to be changed to a fairer distribution model, it could alleviate a lot of problems presented from 6*s. It helps they have a fun game at it’s core, and a ridiculously tenacious playerbase, they shouldn’t ignore it.

I love when you do that lol

Valid points and was watching for your comment, as scopely is tho for me, s class wont be just 1 per team as we will see shields, decaps, etc. After 4 years, i expect the worst from scopely. This could be a way to solve dupes on teams by allowing only 1 s class toon of that toon to be had but that went out the window with be abke to get 2 priyas. Imho this is just like the bandaid and everyones scared, just rip it off now and lets get it over with cause this is scopely and they have never cared about balance, gameplay, bugs, etc. We all know they care for only 1 thing and we know what that 1 thing is. I just wanna get it over with lol

They do care about money. And they’re losing a stupendous amount of it by not going slower and keeping the meta closer to the majority. To talk Scopely talk, there’s no reason why they couldn’t implement one S-Class per team and milk 6*s still. They’d still be 4/5ths of people’s team and still be relevant. Given S-Class is a few thousand stats ahead, you easily spend another year slowly edging up the promo stats until then, you can allow 5 S-Classes per team and the floodgates open on that. There’s no power jump, people’s 6*s aren’t made worthless, people will be used to what S-Class can do, and have enough of their own stockpile to survive, and we’d all be grateful they listened and went slower. All of it in vein of what was said about S-Class in the original post about them. Rare, special, not 7*s, still 6*s. Confidence is built, confidence = investment. All along they’re making more money.

Or, they can just rush out S-Class and grab a few pennies and cents from the 5 people that aren’t disgruntled.

Seems that is how scopely does things tho lol

I thought capitalism was a cut-throat, no fault business. Scopely has a guardian angel

Seems that way, dont know how theyve made it this far but they have, addiction is a hell of a thing, you do things you never thought you would do for that fix such as selling your house, car and children so you could have 2 s class priyas

“Sorry kids but daddy/mommy have to compete” “no need for a house, a cardboard box will do fine as long as i can compete”

Also where did you get your f2p badge at? Is f2p academy hard? Would be funny if it cost money to get a f2p badge :laughing:

The F2P academy is the easy part. The F2P life is lots of tears, lots of defeat, lots of empty hopes, you will hate… everything in existence. But at least you never paid for trainers. :joy:

The only way to save this game is to make these three characters (Pete, Priya, Laopo) one of a kind types. Players who have them have a distinct advantage and everyone else can grind until they catch up…

They can keep coming out with S class toons, but right around Pete’s original stats. They need to get rid of this miserable stat boost which will make every six star irrelevant in a couple of months.

PU has failed. PC has failed. Everything is still profit based. The only glimmer of hope was the free war token (though the wheel is complete garbage).

Of course they are profit driven. Silly statement. They can be profit driven with happy customers both f2p and P2P.

if all is just a failure and terrible then why do you still support scopely by playing the game because this seems to make you miserable and i can never imagine doing some thing in spare time that makes me miserable
