I just wondered how many people have lost their desire to continue playing? How much of the game is still fun? I'm intruiged of what keeps people actually continuing to play it I would like to know. I'm on the verge of giving up but will play it by ear. I know 3 people that have got bored recently and stopped playing. Honest answers appreciated....

As I have said previously this is not the game I started playing but no amount of complaining will change anything sp know there target audience and that’s who they will keep happy, but 1 thing that sp did right was make this a team game and that’s why I continue to play it.

The last 5-6 weeks I have been thinking of quitting; ML has never been "Micro"-paiment, but current pricelevels are way beyond what I can accept: Legend pass has more than doubled (in price), new single monsters can be bought for 26-33 Euros (a piece!) and the new idea of stressing weak players to use a fortune to acquire a monster "here and now" (because elemental cells or elementium cannot be used) is something I thought was reserved for the most primitive internet based games.
"Every" thing is for sale all the time - even Monsterwood is blinking like a salespersons hellish version of red light district. Not exactly social!
In the other end: the game is suffering. Not just has all fun left the game, but so many things simply does not work. I am not talking about Battlefields (once in a time event can have flaws: no big deal), but Monsters that does not work as they should, skills that acts weird or not at all under some circumstances (for instance extra turns given to enemy when enemy has mirror activated). I did not even participate in last month Fraternity event - even that event seemed futile.
New "super"-monsters is being sold as missiles and anti-missiles in an ever increasing rate and now also: price. Even though I fully ranked up 3-4 monsters during the last month, I still have 18 monsters lvl 120 - and not much time to test them before new and perhaps better monsters turns up. So why bother at all?
With the new monsters - starting with Pumpseed - this game stinks (sorry to say that so frankly, but I for one am no longer proud of have been playing this game at all).
Game developers has clearly left the room. So why shouldn't I leave as well?
I have played almost 5 years - thanks to all the teams and players I have known (btw: I used to have more than 150 active ML friends, but they have been reduced to a little over 50 - and even they are not different players: during last 3 exodus events some high level accounts has been bought or taking over by other high level players)!

Team Wars: Too time consuming if you want to play them well.
Races: Idiotic waste of time
Mazes and Progressives: Most of the time too expensive or time consuming
Release of new monsters: Some good, some bad, some game breaking.
SP business model: Vile, most of the time.
I 'continue ' playing (not in a team) because the battle mechanics are superior to any other game I have tried. For me these mechanics can still be tested and enjoyed in Live Duels and to some extend in PVP. But only because I do not have to worry about the 'next best monster' to be able to compete , since outside a team I can afford not to give a poop.
On another note: people have been saying for years already that many people are quitting the game. Obviously at the top it may seem that fewer and fewer players are left, which is logical because players will always quit after some time for some reason. The question whether this is hurting SP can only be answered if we also know if the number of new (paying) players is growing or not.
