Anyone else miss the true whale days, when only the top-top spenders had QGJ, Leia, FOTP, and Old Ben, and they would utterly destroy you on both offense and defense?
And then when you did get a win over them, or managed to snipe them in arena, you actually felt a sense of accomplishment.
Nowadays on mature leaderboards, it's just a combination of who is better at sniping, and who has "guildmates" who can help lock out other players from sniping.
So I say, bring back the whale imbalances! Release some ridiculous Chromium-only toons! Sell Omega ability materials for a ton of money!
