I had stopped doing it before as well. Didn’t make it to stage 400 though. It became too much of a chore to me before that point. Used to love SR before it did though. And i was excited for this update tbh. I still think the ideas they used were fairly good ones, they just took it waaaaaay too far. Walkers should never be completely immune to headshots, 60% should be the highest I think. And they definitely needed to include 6* teams.
But the buffs to both humans and walkers is just insane. The 6* shouldn’t have needed more than a slight buff, if any at all. Just well thought out teams with excellent weapons would have been enough. They were just too greedy and lazy and filled each stage with multiples of heavily buffed, highly OP toons.
I can appreciate that you and a very few others like the new SR. But for most it’s either way too hard, or way to time consuming. Or both. If they had been more reasonable with it though, i think they could have made almost everyone happy. As it stands, the only people who can get Magna and Lee now, are the ones who have no use for them. Those who really do need them, will likely never get to use them, since even f2p will have full s-class teams long before then.
