i finally got my executor to 7* today thinking that now that i don't have to use the malevolence executor-counter fleet that i'd finally be able to actually climb into the top 10 in fleet arena again. unfortunately this is not the case. i only won a single battle out of 10. i saved crystals for a month for this nonsense. this is insanely stupid. i hate the executor. i hate the devs who came up with it. i hate having to try to fight them every stupid day and not getting anywhere. this has to change. i'm seriously considering quitting over this. this stupid ship is not as advertised for me and is ruining any chance of fun that this game has for me anymore since i'm about to start getting murdered daily in GAC and my crystal income is singing like the freaking titanic.
Still, obviously, if you can't work out how to use your new toy then best take others away out of spite.
Seriously, if you do the right modding and plan your moves, there is little to no RNG involved to climb with the 7* executor.
If the expectation is to hit auto and win, then you probably shall wait for the Ravager.
Did I say I was losing?
Downgrading characters should never be encouraged. They should come up with a remedy for it.
All I’m hearing is “I can’t win therefore others must suffer”
I was thinking similarly. The OP is being childish but there is now inconsistency where fleets are effectively a double whammy. All good for me as relatively my fleets are stronger than my "normal" stuff but posting in the spirit of fairness.
Right now they should probably remove fleets from GAC and have "normal" toons only.
If they want to make a similar move with fleet (i.e. rewards come from GAC) then it is tricky.as to kind of balance crystals and arena return then you would need more fleets in GAC which would i) annoy many, many people, ii) be near impossible due to lack of ships.
I know ship crystals were lower down the order but at the top then similar so it is difficult to see how to mesh them fairly. Right now though top fleet players (again including me to show my objectivity) have a new found favourable bias.
The easy (and maybe best) solution, is, as you say, just remove fleets from GAC and let fleet arena be permanently but they have created a conundrum for themselves here with things being meshed and not in different areas of the game.
CG: You got it
OP: Wait the GAC crystals didn't change?
GL's made it so people were less willing to whale on the next one since GL's can be beaten by other GL's.
Now, with crystals in GAC people have incentive to whale on the new toon(s) for the extra edge.
Fleet can now be monetized as squad arena was. Within the year 2022 f2p will be locked out of top spots of fleet arena similar to squad arena in the past.
Why do you want to punish people who invested more time and energy in fleets than in GLs? Currently my Executor is the only thing that still gives me a chance to win when I have to fight someone with twice the amount of GLs that I have.
I don't and if you read my post then you would know I am basically advocating costing myself.
My point is strong fleets are now effectively double dipping (including me so great if they don't change it from a selfish point of view but from a fairness one they should).
Maybe spend more than a day learning how the 7 star ship and fleet work together before saying the new meta is trash. It's been super fun for me. I prefer this meta to the Negotiator meta. The battles are much more fun IMO. And I'm mostly F2P. I buy a $20 pack of crystals if I ever run out, which is like maybe 3 times a year. And there are a lot of whales on my shard. So you don't need to be a whale to make this work
If you hate the devs and the executor so much then go play another game or just choose not to play fleets or use the Executor.
I think you have been possessed by Lord Vader. Emporer Palp would adore you.
Are you ok?
I’m not able to beat the executor in the last 20 attempts in a row now because whoever gets to go first automatically wins. Now everyone in my shard is in a rat race to r9 pilots because of this. Strategy and skill is thrown out the window. $$$ Don’t even ask me about GAC; I’m facing big accounts with atleast 2-3 GLs more than me.
