Endless low level orange gear search. Cyan is to be expected but the needed orange a) have not been increased in pit. B) have not been added/increased on mountain C) MOSTLY were not added to higher level "cyan" levels.
When they add a new level they USED to add increased rare orange drops so we didn't need to farm level 12 more than level 24 for upgrades.
This sinificantly hurts gameplay. It doesn't help the "whales" like me, rather it hurts the up and coming players.
I think all of us would like the lower end, newer/weaker players to catch up quickly to at least close to top 20%. The more we can encourage the weaker/newer players to "catch up" the better the game play is.
I'm not so much asking for myself, rather those who are not in the top 300. I think I am speaking for all of us that it should be quicker and easier for say a level 1500 player to grow to cyan 1 than it took us.
Even now in top 100ish, at cyan-2, I spend more time farming orange than I do cyan levels.
I know Gree makes mistakes, just like me and every other person but this mistake hurts the game. It discourages all of us.
2000 people having fun spending $10 a month is more than 100 of us spending $100 an month. Not only that but those who spend $100 a month will keep spending that. You will not loose that cash, rather you will be gaining more from those players stuck below.
If I could easily promote my 0-2 players to c-1 I'd probably spend more to get them to c-2 than I spend now.
Not to mention if it was easy to move up, we would have more competition, a greater reason to compete.
This lack of O level drops is a new "feature". Prior to c-1 they added the purple rares to 0-? Levels. I don't really understand why Gree is hurting themselves.
