As a Server2 player, i totally agree with most of the comments here, and its a plaque in server 2 as well. Up until gw release, we stayed an update behind server 1, but now we run side by side. While thats not an issue; 3 of the top 10 historical guilds of our server have disbanded because of players quitting due to amount of work necessary and the loss of the fun factor.
While i am no longer proud to be VIP here, i did manage to reach 17 with the newest vip update. I myself have thought about quitting, but thats a gut knocker, when thinking of the investment poured into this just to attempt to keep up with pace. Mind you im in top 10 for stars but not even in top 200 total power nor top 2000 for team power.
Much of that is because ive been working so hard to get all heroes to a minimum orange gear and maxed skilled, even that is nearly impossible without dropping another $2000 for gear alone. Thats just so its not as difficult to get another 4 heroes per month up to orange(not nec. o1+), runed, max skilled, and anything else im forgetting. Luckily all heroes are maxed in skills at a minimum of 101, up to 110 for some.
With that it is still extermely difficult in pits, because so many of the new heroes are unstable and never do the same thing twice. Let alone even being able to understand their dynamics if mines not maxed to o3.
These heroes many of us have spent months on are becoming more and more useless with each coming update because, perblue is forcing our hands so they make a buck, on us needing the new ones as well. Dont get me wrong devs are needed for games of this magnitude(and all games for that matter) but this is one of the most money-hungry, non-problem-solving, and non-fixing group of devs Ive ever seen on an online.
This game 6 months ago, was for most intensive purposes the best thing out imo for mobile, and why im still here (investment and developed friendships); however now i kinda just have to ramble on about the issues, because i cant even put them all on here.
I dont know about server 1, but we still have major chat typing issues that havent been resolved in the 220ish days ive been playing. Im still waiting on a new boss in boss pit. Im still waiting to put my lego skills on lets see who, spike, mega, witch, bard, etc., etc., etc. The gear drop is just as bad as it was and ever has been, just different pieces since that update. Also, when will something be done for the morning players, as i am one and i lose out on every contest, purchase, and any other crap they decide to add at night, yall should seriously prorate for our efforts if we have already completed it that day.
Anyways, im done on that as i know perblue doesnt like me (just the money) lol, but it is good to know that this is a multiserver issue.
