@Suzznee said in What is the point to the books if.....:
My frustration comes from I fit on my team quite well until we have had repeated Sea/Female wars and everyone has a ranked 130 Thetys. I had no issues previously knowing I was a weaker member on the team, and mind you I am not in all elements, but it is really frustrating with all the changes being made that a war isn't even fun when you are wiped out before you get one move because everyone on the opposing team has 130 monsters.
They have made changes recently or maybe it is just me it is happening too that I am seeing monsters with lower runes go before me, Get repeated specials when I think I still have a chance cause the opponent didn't use their stamina drain, but when I use mine they get three specials in a row. I never had a chance. I have not been getting specials on any of my wars or in PVP recently but the opponent has.
I was excited to see the books as I thought it was going to mean we all had to use a variety of monsters rather then the same old standbys.
Although I am happy you have ranked up 130 monsters I don't. The highest I have is a 120 Epic and a couple 115 Legendary. So for me it is very frustrating that we keep getting repeated wars with the same ranked generals and SP tells us the books were brought in for diversity.
I don't want to win all the time, heck I don't even expect to, but it would be nice if at least when I lost I had a chance to try and win. It is also frustrating that I can't or won't be able to anytime soon rank up those generals to compete against those who are demolishing me.
They are also talking about nerfing Thetys. Well my only chance with a 110 is that the opponents Thetys doesn't use stamina drain and I can use it ... But they want to make sure this doesn't land all the time as well.
I loved the game before, win or lose. I was even ok with the team shop pricing going to 1200 I started saving and figured eventually I would get there. But with pricing the way it is there is no way I will be ranking anything to compete anytime soon. That is the part that is frustrating. They have placed most of those monsters from ranking out of most peoples reach.
I don't want them to make the game easy to win. It would't be any fun. But I do want it that new players and lower players as well as middle players like myself can obtain ranking our monsters without it being the second Tuesday of next week... Meaning never...
I do want to see them have more wars then Thetys or ranked General wars. I want to see the game I use to love. I like some of the changes. I just don't like that they are not taking care of issues that have been around a long time and are still not fixed but they keep changing, changing and changing more things and pumping out more monsters.
The Team war matching for instance has been broken for a long time as well as repeated specials on monsters has been this way repeatedly. Lately it has been worse. I deal with the mismatches. Wait two days and another war comes alone I am ok with being slaughtered once in awhile, but it is not fun to see repeated mismatches in wars, and repeatedly being slaughtered because of this. No one wants to lose all the time. No One!
I won't stop complaining till they fix what is broken. There are things that affect everyone. I have spent enough money on this game I think I have the right to complain.
Yes! Yes! Yes! That!
Team Shop prices are putting us up against the wall! It is either spend a batzillion moneys to get VIPs or Nemesis to 130 or be repeatedly slaughtered.
Notice that i didn't mention gem monsters. No hardened monster can compare to thetys/atum/ingvar, hell, even darmith even though i hate that guy.
This is the problem! Right at this instant and with these prices in the team shop, even with war coins awarded through frat event, it wouldn't be enough.
So here is the catch, in order to have a chance to beat darmith 130, or thetys, or atum or ingvar, i need the gem-obtained equivalent of them.
Only there isn't one. Dragon = Darmith, Winged = Ingvar, Sea = Thetys. There is no way i can get all that goodness Generals and their silly-good trait brings.
So... what are we supposed to do?
- Wait 1 year until we can afford a thetys/ingvar/atum/darmith 130
- Buy one 130 monster + the runes for each element, each book that these generals cover.
And you know what? Those lvl 130 monsters won't even cover it, even if i were to go get them.
My killing blows will miss, my effects won't stick.
I don't believe there is a logic behind the war shop price inflation.
SP's excuse for it sounds like "because the purple penguins told me to"
And you know what? If purple penguins told them to, well, they left out the part where if the generals are so darn good and a tier of their own, those that don't have them have absolutely no excuse to fight against them.
Makes sense? Heh, ikr?
People were happy, those that had them generals and those who didn't.
We were getting somewhere. We were thinking "Now they beat me, but in a month i will make Atum 115, then 120, then in 4 months he will be 130"
Now it is like "Oh. These guys again... won't even bother trying. Mmmm this game in the trailer looks promising."
