I’ll echo this issue - I’ve actually felt “stuck” on the Firewall battle in the campaign for a while, which recommends a 12000 Kuro deck. Right now the highest deck I can manage is around 9500, with which I’ve actually gotten close to winning with but can’t quite pull it off.
I’ll admit to 2 things on my part:
- I don’t really like playing alliance so I’m not super motivated to upgrade that faction when I can get more out of upgrading other faction
- I haven’t gone out of my way to ask my alliance to help, though in 20 or so attempts they haven’t felt inclined to jump in either
I think both of these behaviors on my part are about incentives and, as noted above, currency. I don’t want to spend my coins on units I don’t really want to upgrade because they’re so hard to come by now. I don’t want to bother my alliance with a ton of activity they don’t get a lot out of, when I want them to be focused on alliance quests. And if the rewards for finishing the campaign are less for these same reasons, I don’t really have incentive to finish it honestly.
