My wife and i have played DS since 3 months after it came out. I was done with the game when we started getting heroes cramming down our throat over a year ago. I continued to play because my wife loved DS. Since then you continue to screw with the characters so that heroes we have developed are left impotent forcing more and more resources to be thrown against heroes that were lacking in the first place.
Over the last few months the contests have become crap. We have been playing the game for years, don't need Dark Dracula stones. We haven't participated in contests in weeks because they haven't been worth playing. I stopped buying diamonds a year or more ago and only use the game generating diamonds. So I have recently amassed over 17k diamonds I have no desire to use. My wife left the game yesterday. Until a month ago she was the guild leader. She became unhappy with the game and allowed a champion to take over and became a champion herself. I have been a champion for a couple of years too. But today i am leaving the game too. Since the game was sold/bought from PeriBlue it has been steadily going down hill. Screwing with heroes, poor contests, terrible heroes forced down our throats, it just keeps getting.
