I'm going to have to agree with my GM. This is specifically what the changes do to many many players:
*1 Slow Levelers- As a slow leveler, this change is brutal, and it prevents me from being able to complete my dailies. I absolutely do not want the 205 XP (or 105 for reg dungeons) that I would earn by running 20 challenge dungeons and accepting the 35 Crowns. This would raise my level every 4-5 days, and that is not how I want to play this game. Part of my fun is figuring out how to run dungeons and events efficiently to keep my level as low as possible; it creates an interesting logistical puzzle. One of the things that makes this game so enjoyable is that I can choose various ways to play, and I have found a guild that only has the 35 Crown requirement with not level or rooster power requirements. I have never missed this requirement until today. I would love a clear explanation for this change because it feels like a targeted attack specifically against slow levelers.
*2 Casual Players- I am a 41 y/o English teacher with 3 kids. I used to play WOW and League of Legends religiously until I lost most of my free time. This game really scratches that RPG itch, and I don’t even have to isolate myself on the computer away from my kids or students, but I feel that I am still making reasonable progress on my heroes and in my guild. I have time to run the Tower and PVP, but 20 dungeon runs eats up too much time that I would rather spend in other ways, and it wastes valuable stamina that I want to save for actual events like Winterfest or Halloween. I could quick run, but I like to actually play the game, not tap a key icon 20 times.
*3 Guilds- Guilds will soon be losing committed players like myself. My guild has temporarily suspended the 35 Crown requirement, but at some point, if I can’t contribute Crowns, I will have to leave. And, I am not special. I know that hundreds, if not 1000’s, of players are in a similar position. Are we to band together in a guild where no one earns crown? What would be the point?
