Well, I’ve heard many people say this before, and I’m sure 95% of the people here will come running to CG’s defense.. but I sure hope that GLR & GLKR aren’t needed for any future content.. because at this rate, it’ll be the year 2030 before I get them. Once again, CG follows the same crappy business model where they force players to collect and use game resources to collect and level characters they don’t want and will never use to get stuff that’s (unofficially) “required” .. IE: all the whales and filthy rich players will have GLR & GLKR immediately of course, and of course both of them will have abilities that resist all damage, and plunge through their opponents defences. Any PVP or raid scenarios will always leave those lacking these toons at a disadvantage...
But who cares right? If I stay f2p (I will NEVER spend another penny supporting the GREEDIEST developers who ever lived) .. then I’ll get these “must have” toons in about 10 years... and of course by then, they’ll be much less relevant, because CG will have released newer toons with even higher requirements .. making it even more impossible for anyone who doesn’t spend money on this game. Why would they do this? TO GET PEOPLE WHO DONT SPEND MONEY TO START SPENDING MONEY!! CMON PEOPLE!! THEY DONT MAKE ENOUGH MONEY!!
I know nobody here cares, and many (including myself) have complained about this before.. but this time these requirements REALLY feel out of reach. The introduction of Relics was bad enough... now this is just ridiculous. My spirit for this game is broken... I’m going to keep playing for now, but it was already feeling impossible to keep up.. now you’ve made it ridiculous. Maybe if they change direction and ACTUALLY STARTED PROVIDING NEW CONTENT then I might be tempted to stay around. (NOTE: I do NOT consider “The hyperdrive bundle OMG!!!!!!” or anything available in the store to be “content“) .. but instead they’ll be all the whales with their brand new toons.. playing the same tired scenarios over and over with the same backgrounds... no new game modes, no other things added to the game. Doesn’t that sound great?
And now, let me save the CG defense team some time.. Yes, I know that if I immediately HALT everything I’m currently doing in this game (still trying to get Malek and my DR team to G13) and focus solely on these new releases, I could get GL toons in less than 10 years. But will I consistently be at a disadvantage to the whales? Yes. (Well, that’s always the case anyway) Will I spend even a penny to change that for myself? NOT EVER. Is this an enjoyable way to play? NO.
OH WAIT .. I found a solution to stay f2p and still get everything I need in the game. ILL SPEND SOMEONE ELSES MONEY INSTEAD. That way, I’m still “technically” free to play right?
