Hello Wild Beyond players.
I come to you from the War Dragons world. War Dragons is a game that I have once loved dearly, and while they are trying to hide WB under a different company name, it is owned and operated by the same company, Pocket Gems.
If you are playing WB with the intention of playing F2P/casually, go for it, however you will see very quickly that F2P or even E2P (elite to play) does not get you far in the PG world. If you understand how P2W games work, this will come as no surprise to you. Games like this thrive on and cater to huge spenders; people who spend literally thousands upon thousands of dollars, people with addictive personalities. PG artificially inflates the competition in War Dragons, and likely this game too, by allowing and in some cases encouraging cheating. In the WD forums PG employees have admitted multiple times that they don’t always ban cheaters. Often, they will just roll back their accounts and refund them for any legitimate purchases they made. There are obvious cheaters all throughout the game, even within the top 50 teams. The players report the cheaters and see that nothing is done, because without people cheating, the whales have no reason to spend.
PG’s corruption and questionable ethics does not end there. If you have ever considered buying a pack in the WB store, just don’t. In War Dragons we have a currency called rubies which is equivalent to your diamonds. In WD, some players are offered 15k rubies for $19.99, while others are offered 35k rubies for $99. The disparity is huge, and the common link is if you spend money on the game, you will always get the more expensive packs. In some countries this is illegal yet PG still does this and without transparency.
If you have noticed that WB has a lot of issues, or that it already has balancing issues, it is NOT because the game is brand new. It’s because PG cannot release an update without bugs and cannot balance a game. 3 years later WD players are still dealing with bugs with literally every major update. We are still begging PG to balance things that we were begging for years ago. Did you know our chests contents are not scaled by level and haven’t changed in years, despite the fact that new towers/tiers have been added and costs have been increased by thousands of times? Complain about this on the forums and they will say “we hear you”, but that is all they’re doing, hearing us, until the day they kill the game.
The support (zendesk) that PG uses is utterly useless, so don’t even bother trying to submit a ticket if you need help with anything. We have been dealing with the same thing at WD for years. The sad truth is, this company is not interested in the longevity of its games. The plan is to drain you for every penny that they can as quick as they can. Don’t be surprised if WB isn’t here a year from now. The game developers themselves seem shocked that WD is still around, and now they are actively trying to kill it, despite having customers who spent huge amounts of money.
Long story short, don’t waste your time on this game, and ESPECIALLY do not waste your money.
