If I weren’t invested in this game I would have left already. Let’s list the issues.
The one that’s bothering me most now is the stupid award system for medals in PvP combine with putting in cheeseball mechanics like madness which combines crazy with warp and shields. At my level most fights award 5 medals. But now people can play a Giga Kuro team at low diamond with 3 madness each, 3 turrets each, warp, and shield and turtle behind their barricades and when you lose you lose 20-30 points. Even evenly matched I play a similarly ranked group to mine and win I get 5-7 and lose and lose 13-14. The math doesn’t work and it’s seriously making me want to scream, shout, throw things and then quit this game. And what response do we get… we are planning a big fix but it’s months away. That isn’t an acceptable answer any more. The game is dying and I don’t care if you tell me there is more activity numbers lie easily. Your long term players are quitting. The lifeblood of the game. And they are leaving bad ratings and telling people not to play.
The economy. I know you need to limit coins but you are starving us and every change you make which even touches on the economy like mines, like events, etc. just makes it worse. You may be happy with it but once again the players aren’t. You own and run the game but we play it, without us it can be the biggest most awesome game that no one plays. Honestly if you made the game more player friendly instead of less perfect in your hypothetical minds it could have been one of the biggest games in the Apple store. Do you really think leaving the coins as they were and maybe getting rid of the doubler, or leaving purchased packages as they were would have destroyed the game. No the game would have done better and your player base wouldn’t be up in arms.
The mines. You can say it was meant to be played as we leveled but even at top level people have trouble with the higher bosses which is directly tied to your strangling the economy of coin and the inability to improve combined with the limiting of commanders to ones we may not have improved yet and now can’t. Plus the stupidly large amount of gold needed for quests. By your own admission even if all 3 moons were open and maxed it would take roughly 20 hours per quest. And you put this in deliberately.
You have broken faith with your players over and over again. You can only kick a dog so many times before it bites.
