    @Brian-Walker
    I suppose my point was that they are quite powerful and prior to them getting added to the game it was stated that they would not be.

    My other point was, I hate how long they make battles.

    To start with it is my hope that this will not become a common thing. Even with auto battle speed up the fights take way too long. Maybe multiple amounts of time compared to before.

    So the exhausting mask things that literally take all or nearly all your stamina and the ones that heal more than 15k damage are seriously game changers. As in they make more difference than runes. I thought it was said that relics were not going to be must haves...that dictate the battle. Both of these are prime examples from the talos dungeon lv 2. I have not encountered these in pvp or tw yet, but I imagine they are there too.

    @Vanita-Williams Currently that is not the system. It would be good if co leads could nominate people to be kicked and then the lead have the choice. It is different, but more than that I'd like to have a automation that has settings...for instance a function that says you don't log in within 24 hours and it auto kicks you, or 48, etc....

    @Ekto-Gamat I think you pretty much hit the nail on the head, with the current game there is no hope at all, so why waste my time as other than the strategy of collecting, the actual game play is not really fun. Lets be real, most players don't even look at anything but the autoattack function an if in fact my team looses, try again and you probably won't.

    At the time I started I figured after a year or two I might get "near" the lower top players enough to not totally blow chunks. Now I see that year was largely wasted. Worse yet they now have even more stuff you have to do on schedule and battles take even longer etc...no thanks.

    Sure, I now play war robots. It too has players spending more than I ever will and yeah some of the robots are as high as 300+ dollars etc. If I choose to play the game all the time and participate it is possible to have the same for free as someone who spent the 300$ only I have to play a lot an wait/ also maybe get lucky too.

    Yeah, I did spend some money, I think I bought 3 lv 10's, 2 vips, and even 600 gems or so at one point. I mostly regret it, but not totally as most of it was pre-nemesis and I did get some enjoyment back then. I am imagining now, I maybe can't even do the vip dungeon once faraday makes it into there like the rest of the nemesis have, but that would be a whole nother level of sp hate. I did delete monster legends from my phone so I have mostly "gave up" I also left the team that I was lead of. As a side note after uninstall, my Samsung phone seems to work a lot better and nolonger gives me errors from ml running in background....

    Why would anyone want to play a game where the best monsters have no way to be acquired in game without spending real money? In 2016 the best stuff in the game at least had some way to be acquired for free, in 2017 with vip/nemesis there is no way in the game to aquire them.

    @TCML-Lead When they aren't giving out gems,monsters, or something better than food and gold --I don't watch movies. Sometimes I get movies, but no pay out, till you watch like 5 of em. Now I just stop and go play something else after the second one that don't pay. Anyways that's what I do...
    Maybe it's not always a good idea to watch the movies...Aparently the company is no good at advertising and marketing so they don't make money from them anyways...

    @testcyp There sure is, and it is a sign of the times. Personally I hate the way our gaming industry is going. At least one country -Belgium may finally be putting a stop to internet games having gambling loot boxes to exploit people's know weaknesses.

    I spent 10k+ on a mmo game once after an injury to my back. I had about a year on intense pain killers most of which I spent gaming. I made some bad decisions..... My personal story.

    Lots of other reasons people spend unreasonable amounts.

    @pvtpyle I think the game will be so much better when they finally run off the big spenders and the game fails. I bought two vip, mostly regret it. Bought a couple level 10 runes. At this point I wouldn't spend another cent on this game or any other ran by this company. They ruined it for this game and every other one they have anything to do with. I started playing about a year an a half ago or so. EVERY Single thing they have done to the game since then has been a BAD thing that makes the game LESS fun for me. Even the things I like such as the vault was poorly done.

    The relics offer nothing new, nothing of any value as it pertains to FUN.

    Adding gambling to the game to swindle the big spenders even more, I can't think of anything positive to say about it.

    @Fox Looking at the wiki: it looks like there are relics to increase speed, lower enemy speed, heal x amount when below x amount of life, and resurrection.

    @TCML-Lead PvP is not fun at all. Sometimes I do it for the "rewards"
    I constantly get matched up against people in the top 500 when I am in high gold/legendary 4. I'd like to see enemies that are plus or minus 250 trophies in same league. I wouldn't care about any refresh button then.

    I was thinking of something along the lines of hackester 3 speed, granuy 3 team speed, and flamerion 3 team speed.

    I'm fairly close to you in trophy points and was also wondering this exact same thing. Does it go off trophy count, or is there some other formula to determine which of the leaques you are in. It's strait forward up until the bottom legendary spot.

    @Fox
    Rares, commons, and possibly even epics have no place in a war with legendaries. All that accomplishes is a war coin nerf in that they will die, probably to the first aoe and they are so slow they will have no chance of going. All they can do is hold team speeds for the first turn. After which they are dead.

    @loony123
    I've ran into many players trying to join our team that seem to have no idea how to play the game. If you don't have all of your farms built and they aren't producing food, your not getting in. If you do have all your farms built and they are constantly growing atleast the 3k food food then you will level up. It is a good idea to not level up super fast but after playing for a few months you will find out that it is better to never stop food production and never stop trying to breed free legendaries. I advise staying away from adventure map till about lv 70 at which time you may as well slowly start doing it inbetween dungeons. If you are doing dungeons, watching adds, doing events, then it won't take long and the monsters from the 72 hour one become not so important.
    The game actually has a pretty good flow of difficulty level. No real reason to purposely stop leveling or worry about monster power.
    From a team war perspective, I don't care about monster power, I care that you have atleast one of every book that is lv 100 with atleast lv 4 runes in them and that you log on atleast to do the war attacks. That's all. Ive seem people with all lv 40 monsters somehow have fairly high monster power, so it means nothing to me now.

    As far as I can tell, once the entire line of nemesis monsters are out then you can essentially say it is a waste of time to rank up anything else.
    The time it would take to rank any monster from the team shop, the monster will be obsolete by the time that happens for even a single one. AT 2500 coins and our team makes like 6k in 90 days so can look forward to another year and a half.
    I had bought a zyla and kaith, but likely never get one of them to even lv120......
    I could save up for 6 months and get enough gems to rank a new monster to 130, but now with nemesis it basically made legendary monsters obsolete.
    I almost can do dungeons due to the over leveled nemesis monsters I am forced to face in the them, and it only seems to be getting worse.

    The cards seem really stacked against me, what am I suppose to be doing? Where is the goal?

    My whole family plays monster legends. You could not convince any of us that specials don't have an increased rate when monster has no stamina. Not only theta stamina devour, but every other skill that takes all of stamina seems to trigger one more frequently by a lot. Often times I am afraid to take the enemy stamina .

    @Sam this maybe is another thread entirely, but yeah, occasionally it seems like the game just "wants" me to loose. I've even had my aoe miss all three or only hit one.

    Considering that in pvp I often beat teams that have superior runes, faster teams,etc... Whats the point of them going to the effort to get faster, have better runes,etc...

    With autoattack it often does not much matter my monsters selected, I usually walk right thru dungeons, even with gold runes in.

    Ranking up, actually made the game harder, my sons account only has lv 100"s and he does everything but team wars easier and really at most peoples level, team war winning is all about picking the right target and having good team participation.

    It makes it feel futile to try to upgrade....

    @KobraB kinda like others said, the gem event is now completely extra, and that make it much better. Essentially it is just an added bonus to those who were going to buy gems anyways, and maybe even will get a few to spend more than otherwise. Good for them, at least this time it is not taking anything away from me to do so......nothing wrong with giving extra to those who spend.

    @Kaiju I can't see how any but the top teams would not be top heavy. I think monster power is a poor judge of power. If you do not have at least one of every book at level 100 with level 4 runes or better, you are not likely to be an important factor in battle except on newly formed teams, obviously the first goal is getting three lv 100s for dungeons, then maybe a different three-6 for pvp. If you are not using lv 100's your monster power doesn't matter . I have seen members trying to join team that have all sub 100"s and yet have higher monster power than someone with a few 100's. The sad thing is that way to many people can't seem to grasp that you need to build for high enough gold flow to constantly grow food non stop. If you have been playing very long, your monster power and your level will naturally go up fairly fast....

    Why would you want it to have new monsters? do you really already have 18 copies of either? This is the best thing and I hope they continue on with it, there does not need to be nearly so many new monsters. Time to give copies so people can actually rank some up.

    @testcyp Starting it when I don't even have the monsters hatched is a big fail. I just won't participate. No biggie, but if they didn't want me to participate and look forward to events then they could just close the game down. If the events are not fun and rewarding, I and others will eventually give up and go play something else. There is money in numbers of players, free or otherwise which is something that this company does not seem to understand well.
    They should just change the breeding guardian to a hatching one instead. The bottleneck is in hatching not breeding. It makes money sense to do so. Amazon realized that the faster you can get the product to the consumer the more likely they are to buy. It would be better if my breeding hill n tree was full and my hatchery had a spot left that would make me think I should use real money to buy and egg. As it is now, my breeding is always full waiting on my hatchery. Therefore why would I spend real money to buy something that I can't even hatch? All but the top percent of players should be trying to breed the free legendaries at all times....or you will be one of those players with no coin or food or free gems etc...

    @ultra1776 This is a good event. Yeah the company is looking to have changed direction into a worse company and they seem to have forgot that a big part of the success of this game is based of of it's friendliness to free players. I mean seriously it's no candy crush, if it gets free players it is still dollars due to advertisement. Anyways, this event is actually good, like the previous players mentioned it is free stuff for something that was already going to happen. I save all my gems for the monster cell event and always load up on the ten or so monsters I am looking to rank up. I am not going to buy gems, but I have enough saved up since the last one of these events that Ill be able to get the 3 ten runes which is really cool. I am extremely happy. Gems can be free. buying 20 cells for 30 gems is perhaps the cheapest you can aquire monsters in the long run......

    posted in General Discussion read more
  • Brian Walker

    @loony123 And yet the vast majority will probably get less gems than if they just did the old pvp events and got the 20 gem payout and the 25 gem place. In a two week period you used to be able to count on 90 gems and sometimes more. Not to mention the food and good stealing. Before all that was needed was 3 decent lv 100s with level 4 runes and time plus effort. Now to get the same gems you will need better than that...If they lower the rewards than it is a gem nerf, not increase.

    @Fox
    Having done this now awhile I don't like not seeing the runes. I don't like how short the shield is. I dislike being attacked every time I attack.

    It seems like I will be in gold 3 and get 150 gems. I am mostly happy with that, but prior I would have done a pvp event about every week and so would have gotten 20 gems plus 25 more for spending the effort of attacking every two hours. In other words, you guys should not be thinking of lowering the rewards unless you are bringing the 3 day events back. They are good now.

  • Brian Walker

    yep, I'm right there with you at over a thousand unhatched monsters. The main reason is that I refuse to stop breeding the free legendaries for gold supply untill all my lv 4 habs are full, but while doing so makes my hatchery completely clogged up. If my hatchery was not clogged up, I could buy new monsters with money/gems, hatch from my storage, etc... You would think that from a making money perspective they would severly reduce hatch times in order for me to have a free spot in the hatchery so I would actually want to buy a monster with money or gems...

    Frankly missing when using a denier sucks....that is why thetys is any good, because she doesn't miss. That said, against cavenfish, callitech, frostbite, she doesn't even get a turn if they don't miss and level and runes are the same.
    All the old time players all have 130 thetys which is why they are so prevalent in wars and that will never change unless they also get the three I just mentioned all to 130 too. How long does it take to get 18 copies of a 249 gem monster as a free player or nearly free.....A very long time--Therefore it is bad to change the top monsters around frequently, or bad for anyone without a credit card and willing to use it.
    The cost increase mostly hurts new players from having a 130 thetys themselves, obviously a new player will have nothing else (fast) to compete with the current thetys out there.

    @Fox Last few months I feel negative on the outlook of this game and if I was a stock holder it would be sell sell sell. That said, the new pvp is cool but we do need to see the runes before we pick who we attack. I mean they show us the monster and level, both of which aren't really as important as the runes. I'd rather fight lv 130 monsters with lv 3 runes that 105's with lv 10 runes.
    That and I have noticed the pvp for food and the pvp events seem to be not happening as often. The few gems from the pvp leaque reward don't even cover the rewards from those, not to mention the increased rewards for top 5k etc.. It feels like a gem nerf.

    @Ekto-Gamat I suppose it all goes to what is a war coin worth.... If your average monster is worth 249 gems than it is a math to figure that about 10 war coins are a gem. Then to consider that the ability of a gem to do stuff like buy vip cells, lv 10 runes, and nearly any monster or cells, the scale leans further than the maths suggest. For all but a few in the very top teams who the majority probably don't care about, spending any gems at all in a war seems counter productive....I've spend as much as 10k on a video game before and I was one of the top players in that game, but I don't think at all that I reflected "good advice"

    @Lassem It is really bad, Our team had to buy out epic breeding quests at about 1 per lap and twice on the last lap to qualify. Essentially two of us had to waste 250 gems each so that the rest of the team could get a monster that we ddn't really want. We just wanted to make sure and qualify so our team members didn't all abandon us. I hate team races. I wish they were not part of the game and they bring nothing "fun" to the game when you can't even qualify without spending gems....

    Nobody will get the last place monster rewards as only the top 10 will even make 4 laps...go figure.

    Personally with removal of lv 10 runes, raising prices, moving "better" monsters out, etc....I think they want people to quit doing team wars. It is already fairly hard to motivate players to participate. Lv 10 runes, Strong general were the carrot, and they have essentially took it away.
    In fact without team wars, there is no reason to buy anything as everything else could be done for free except pvp. Their market team is sub par.

    posted in General Discussion read more
  • Brian Walker

    My theory is that all the new changes has resulted in less money, not more, and they are offering lv 10 runes so cheap out of desperation.
    They just made lots of players angry over the king of gem event, and excluding them from the harvest and the growth splurt events.
    They maybe made people that bought VIP monsters mad offering now Nemisis monsters.
    They made the team shop worse removing lv 10 runes, raising prices, removing generals
    They made all the free breedable legendary monsters poor gold earners.
    They made some non vip owners angry with vip dungeon
    They made most people angry with team wars and the library change
    The list goes on....they are making spenders just about everyone angry, free to play, occasional spenders, and even big spenders. (pretty soon the big spenders will only have each other to play with)

    So yeah I noticed that in the last few events like the pvp one, the top did not buy nearly as much to attain the top. Therefore I am thinking the people on top are not spending as much now....
    I want to buy the gems, but it is hard to reward them for making so many changes I don't like. Esp for making me loose out on gems for two events....

    @Axel-Bjelland
    I guess it is different for everyone, But I feel like a game is typically worth spending 100$ on if I will be playing it daily and if it seems like I may play it for a year or so. The flip side is there are a lot of people with more money and there are a lot of people with less money who are more willing to spend...both ruin the game for me. The fun thing for me about the first multiplayer online games was that the "winner" wasn't the one willing to spend the most money. The skill portion of the game is actually not that big, your kidding yourself if you think so. If I choose to waste my life savings on just about any current game, I would be ranked right up there in the top. This game is no different.

I think they loosened the chances cause two others that I know in real life got her within two tries. The recent changes/choices has lead to a mad player base and it feels like they are swinging back in the other direction. For sure the weekly events have had the top players at a much lower level showing less gems spent, They must be making even the big spenders angry.
