Yeah, sadly I'm going to agree with a few other people here when it comes to the 'Heard it all before' stance, because we have. Since Gree has taken over this game its been nonstop excuses, promises, broken promises & around & around we go.
Maybe if the money went into developing what we actually want & continually ask for instead of things we don't (like hero's), they'd start generating revenue without the need for constant hero's. Because sorry, I just don't buy the "new hero's mean revenue for developing" spiel... Per blue never relied on that & did just fine with Dragon soul, just like they're doing fine with their new game, Why? Because we at least got stuff like good cheap daily deals, good chests, fewer contests that made them fun instead of another boring grind, & legendary quests to focus on & look forward to instead of a constant string of hero's. So if Gree are soley dependent on hero's for the revenue to get things done, then there's clearly a bigger issue here than we thought.
Servers are dying because people are bored. People are bored because it's the same old crap & pointless grind we've had for the past year, day in day out.
It's the same old pointless crap day in day out because for all the "we're discussing this at length" & "we're working on that" talk, nothing changes. At this point I'm about ready to say "F it" & walk away from a VIP 18 account & a VIP 14 account because I don't think it'll ever change, & there are other games I could & have been putting my money into. Hell, even my sons Pokemon Go is doing a better job of holding my interest at this point. I'm more excited about the damn Groudon I just got today than I am about yet another DS contest ffs. So Dragon soul supposedly being one of the best game apps is nothing but a matter of personal preference & opinion, and those who are leaving in droves for other games without so much as a glance back clearly didn't think it was all that & a bucket of sparkles either 🤷♀️
