I am personally upset by the very idea that only those who gemmed the heck outta the last grand prix race get an event. Almost like being discriminated against.
Feel very cheated for sure on the last event spending gems into a black hole with nothing to show for spending.... And now to see that a "huge" majority have been excluded because they didn't gem "enough" ... talk about really really really poor timing on this one....... Or was it because we didn't earn 50 war coins in "each" war over the past 14 days or not? The error message should really have said the correct thing.....
This game has become so jaded toward heavy spending that it's no longer rewarding to play. I'm sure that a multitude of players feel the same way.
Maybe as folks start walking away from the game it will be realized. I've seen way too many games fall because of the gouging that started and began to increase. Folks get frustrated if they see a fun game become "too much" about spending. Happens way too often. I just walked away from a different game that fell victim to this very thing. So many left that it became a snowball effect and folks continued to leave making it inevitable for me to to the same.
Paint yourself into a corner Social Point and it may not be the lucrative ending as hoped. Keep those that gem regularly around by not making things so expensive.
So if you cut out all of us every day players that have good monster power and strong teams that gem regularly, .....oh and these same ones that fell victim to gemming at an expensive rate during the last event btw for no reward....
Seems a not so favorable move. Many in the game do a lot of spending on the revives during wars, buying the last few coins needed to get a monster out of a maze etc. I'm sure you'd find that to be a big enough piece of the earnings.
.....Now that last event could have easily been singled out for the top 50 teams or something. Considering the gemming aspect of those top ranked teams and the gemming requirement of the Team Battlegrounds attack phase of the event.
Think the money thing is getting outta hand in the past couple of weeks.... greediness shows to those loyal players coming and playing and continuing to pay towards this game in ways that should satisfy the "income/development, etc." need.
The "majority" seem to be becoming alienated by the spending aspect of the game as of late....
Can all of the "sales" items in the taskbar be toned down as well please? Way too many spend in the game without the need for "this" overload, as it wasn't like this before & me personally probably spent more when it wasn't bogging down my device.
Can Social Point please consider this.....so my game doesn't constantly crash because my cache is basically filled up almost full before I even begin to "play" the game.
I'm feeling a very strong urge in past few days to leave this game because of the gems gems gems gems....buy buy buy.
To not be rewarded in the Team Battleground event felt like way to many were "scammed". I know this word isn't liked, but that is how the feeling is.
Feels almost as bad as the guy that calls your house and says this is Microsoft and you have a virus, I need you to log into your computer....
....I am very very sorry team..... but it's a very brutally honest assessment of the past two-three days. Once again I truly believe that Social Point teams do an "amazing job",
just kindly ask that the "play & fun" factor be given back a bit when sitting in meetings and coming up with ideas for events, going over the link stats, and such. Oh and one very huge "fun/morale" (the who point people play a game) move that Social Point can do for the loyal spending players....Bring back new islands on the Adventure Map. (as they are "Coming Soon" right?)
