It's sad to see people quit this game left and right, and I wonder if CC has asked themselves the question why?
I am part of TGC (you might remember Dizzle, our mayor's post about the chat system), we were ranked 91 at a certain point with everyone in the city active all the time. We are doing our own raid raffles and always helping others to the best of our abilities.
In the past 2-3 weeks we have had 4 people leave our city, and the game, for good. The reason? They are fed up with the grind
, and so are the players that are left. We are talking about paying customers that have bought multiple packages, myself included. I mean, have you ever stopped and wondered how long it will take a player to craft a lvl40+ mythical?
If you don't believe me, analyze this steamchart
You will notice most players enjoyed the first month of the game and then it spiraled into chaos, why? because its a grindfest.
Take the Affection Staff as an example, its been two months and one of our players have been grinding the craft since it released and now only have 2 legendaries. The game is forcing you to constantly do the same thing over and over for months on end to get a single item. Now think how many mythicals do you need to equip all your heroes with? We are getting killed by grinding for weeks on end with no results. I myself have been grinding Valkyrie Grips for a whole month and still don't even have the ability unlocked. 8 Flawless items as a precraft? Are you joking?
I won't even start talking about fusion times, we all now how hellishly unpleasant that system is.
Will this game continue with this trend or will it change?
