    I think if it weren't for the attraction of team wars, the game would have died a long time ago. There is very little else in the game that can hold players onto it long-term. I think most collectors would have given up by now and doing mazes, progressives, team races over and over again? The only reason players do that is to get stronger for wars and most of it is mindless grinding. It's a pity, the game has so much unused potential.....

    The main attraction for me has always been running a fun team of like-minded players doing wars. This one main attraction of the game is better than it has ever been before, so thanks SP for that!

    However, everything else in the game that feeds into becoming stronger and better for wars has become worse. Progressives, Mazes - absolutely impossible. Also, there hasn't been an older monster obtainable for free that was worth having in a while. Master of Paths was great, but the long time since the last one tells me that SP thinks that was too generous. Timed Challenges, in particular Gold Fever, was something I enjoyed, strategically build your gold economy to climb the ranks. This has now been turned into strategically spending money or don't bother. Essentially, I play less and less events because they are just not worth the effort anymore. I just say 72 hour Challenge 😂

    @fox said in Disadvantage for newer players. Possible to bring back a few old aspects to the current game?:

    Can you please let me know where in the dungeons we reduced the gems amount?

    2 x Book Dungeon (2x12)+ 2 Monster Dungeon (2x12)+ Gem Dungeon (20) + Survival (12/2) every 2nd week = 74 gems/week

    Easy gem Dungeon 25 + Hard Gem Dungeon 41 = 66 gems/week

    @fox said in Disadvantage for newer players. Possible to bring back a few old aspects to the current game?:

    We are giving now 5 less elementium

    2 Book Dungeons (5+6) + 2 cell Dungeons (2x3) + Survival every 2nd week (10/2) = 22/week

    You only give 10 in one dungeon now!

    = 8 gems (or 11%) less and 12 elementium (or 54%) less!!!

    And as John above has said, no more good epic cells in survival dungeon. You can try and sweet talk things, but the reality is that you are constantly giving less and less whilst charging more and more!!!

    I wholeheartedly agree with the OP. SP has moved the endgame into the distant horizon even for paying players, let alone F2P. Everything becomes more expensive while at the same time in-game rewards are slowly but steadily cut....

    ...when the new dungeon schedule came out and I noticed an overall cut in gems (not much) and significant cut in elementium (over 50% cut!!!), I thought that was to balance the rewards from the cave as I often received 2-4 elementium and sometimes a few extra gems after I paid out the first trap. However, those rewards have now been removed almost completely. I'd say 5 out of 7 days I walk away with nothing (not spending 4 gems for a bit of gold an food & possibly one or two elementals!). Yet there hasn't been any official statement from SP @Fox how is any new player going to get anywhere unless they are rich and can throw 1000s of $$$ at the game???

    Well, they may be useful for Battlegrounds. Now that SP has taken Gold Fever away from me (dropped from 380th to beyond 1000th), there is no point converting all my Lvl 4-6 runes into team gold. So I shall just fuse them into mutants to give my TBG monsters a bit of an edge. However, no way that I will ever fuse anything above Lvl 6 - not worth it!!!

    And definitely not dropping a single gem into this madness 😠

    Mmh, considering the small extra effect you are getting, it means if you are using standard runes of Lvl IX and X mostly, that you would also only want to use mutant runes of that level. However, you have to sacrifice 3 runes for the sake of one for that added extra. I can't see many doing this as it's just nuts. I'd be happy to fuse a few 5s & 6s but because the main boost will then also stay a 5 or 6, I'd still be better off using normal IX or X....

    ....I think will just ignore these runes completely. I can see no advantage whatsoever using them unless you are rich and don't have anything better to spend your money on!!!

    @jimmy said in New dungeons feedback:

    Let's be honest, the new dungeons and the caves are a failure.

    I like the new dungeons. Less grinding for similar amount of rewards! Also, the rune dungeons are much better value now. I mean Lvl 5-10 chest! No idea what the chances of a 10 are but a 5 is definitely better than the 4 lvl 4s we used to get....

    ....the caves are a menace! They exploit gambling nature - that's the big problem! I only ever go to the first trap, pay 4 gems and cash in on my rewards....

    ....however, I think too many were doing this, so SP has now reduced the rewards. Fewer cells and goodies in between and mostly useless food and gold. Door 5 used to be 2 gems/elementium and door 10 4 gems/elementium, now we are getting 1 and 2. Needless to say that I am now mostly walking away with nothing spent and nothing gained!!!

    @relux said in When will Book leaderboards finally be a thing?:

    Mutant runes and other cash grabbing things are more important.

    Sadly, you are probably right 😩

    I have never seen so many long term players leave the game as in the last few weeks. I fear that there will be another exodus once those stupid mutant runes are introduced!

    but he's in winter ...@Ekto-Gamat 's favourite book

    Yay, the one book that has never made it into war rotations 😢

    @clackers yep, books have definitely not been thought through terribly well. Lots of inconsistencies and imbalances in terms of how often individual monsters occur in books. The missing leaderboard which had its place holder for almost two years confirms this....

    .... what I had to learn the hard way, is don't assume anything. I ranked my Chill Bill without checking whether he's in the Sea Book as I just assumed, naturally, that a penguin would just have to be in it 😩
