I'm not asking you what you developers have done, because we all know what happened.
The new PvP. Big update! New balancing! New rewards! New quests!
We all LOVE IT!
Actually, most of us hate it.
The PvP changes screwed this game over. I have seen seven people quit, and I'm not able to see everyone. I talked about this update on multiple occassions to friends online or in person, and I just sent them all a "Do NOT play this game" because of this update.
Sure, someone is going to disagree. Want to know why? Because they're a VIP5+, because they have shade, because they bought rune packs, or because they're level 70 and it doesn't matter.
Go ahead, disagree.
Back when Kai was released, he was annoying. Still, he had counters. With the runes update, you (the developers) essentially said "Spend money, win." to an even higher degree. Shade? Don't get me started. I'm spending 1.6mil on refreshes because all I see these days are Kai Shade Ponti, Kai Shade Kozar, Shade Daeris, etc.
News flash! It gets old!
You took away strategy from the game, you took away heroes by making them obsolete, you screwed people who don't spend upwards of $200+ on this, and honestly.. I am not the only person who will no longer purchase anything in Dungeon Boss.
My money, as well as others, which you seem to so greedily desire, is going elsewhere.
Does that tick any alarms out there?
Your game, Dungeon Boss, which you worked SO HARD on, is going to die from the inside if you do not listen to your players. You just s-c-r-e-w-e-d everyone who doesn't pay much in this game, and everyone who is not level 70.
179 raids by level 69-70s in 7 hours
33 trophies lost per lost defense
(5907 trophies btw, and I only get 100 per win.)
Made creative bait teams useless
Made anyone under 68-70 essentially useless and unable to compete at all
Reduced the rewards of PvP
Killed some players' ability to get gold, tokens, or otherwise anything PvP related
And you divided the community into "I pay this game to win" and "I am gimped and having very little fun for not paying".
I, guildmates, players in general chat, have been demoted from Gladiator I to Gladiator 2 or 3 six+ times over the course of this update because of this horrible, poorly thought-out update.
And why did a level 70 furnace melee my Zomm for 12.3k noncrit without buffs? Ridiculous.
Really, I don't know what is going on. Developers, if you are running low on funds, truthfully, tell us all. But after having Shade, then the EXPENSIVE as HELL winter event, now the broken PvP system only for the biggest spenders? Sure seems like you're hoping to draw extra.
Well, here's the thing:
If your lower levels (which consist of the majority of the game) are screwed and unable to have fun besides PvE, you will lose them, and lose potential income very, very rapidly.
What happened? Why did you resort to bigger and better instead of fixing and restoring? Nerfed bovus and tsume, gave us SHADE? I'm disappointed! Everyone I talk to is disappointed! And yknow what, the only ones who say "I like this update" are using a 6star shade as their friendshare, or are level 70. Every. Single. One.
I ask, as a simple human with a burning passion that is rapidly dying for this game, for the developers, creators, managers, administrators, whatever you call yourself, to just..
Talk with us.
Not your wallet, with us.
Why are you pushing us casuals and slowgrinders away, when we could be having fun and enjoying taking our profits and putting them to your hard work?
This, essentially, sums up the emotions, facts, chat, and ideas that I have been gathering for at least the past month. I'm just one person, but that's because I have an iron will and an even stronger passion. Others have my same feeling towards this, I'm just one of the most outspoken.
~ A critically enormous percentage of your average players, who just got very, very upset.
