Ok. Here I am at Level 47. It was mostly a fun ride until the low 40s but now the grinding begins and the true imbalances are starting to show.
Credits: I have 2.1 million credits, mostly from completing the Galactic War daily, but not much to spend them on. So a few times a day I purchase all gear for sale in Shipments. Do you think this gear would be usable to level up some heroes? No. It's all pretty useless as my level 47 characters don't seem to need any of them.
Gear: All of my best and favorite heroes are Gear Levels V and VI. And they need a ridiculous amount of gear for one slot. Many of them need 5 dupes that barely drop from missions that I grind daily. To make matters worse, many characters need the same type of gear. And I'm having trouble getting 5 drops. Yikes!
Leveling: It seems that character level takes a distant back seat to ability level and gear level. Increasing a character level might give you 2-5 increase in a base stat, but not much else. Do they even get more hitpoints for leveling?
Ability Mats: Aside from the 2x a week you can gain mats from Challenges, we are stuck getting mats from the Galactic War. If you hit one of those ridiculously overpowered teams early. You can kiss the rest of those mats goodbye for the day. But, why do I have so many tier 3 ability mats when there is no use for them in the near future. Dooku's Hindering Press if Level 5 and his upgrade to level 6 doesn't even need a tier 3. And I can't level him until player level 56. Why do I have 20 tier 3s when I should be rewarded tiers that I could actually use?
In short, it seems like the game has really stalled out at these levels. A lot of grinding with nothing happening. I wish I could buy something I actually needed with my credits, like mats or higher tier gear. Instead of needing specific gear to level up a Gear Level wouldn't it be more fun to stick whatever gear we like in those slots until we get some cool rare drop that really boosts a character? Kind of like a typical RPG.
Will there be any special events coming up? Any more chance to purchase character packs? New characters?
