I honestly sit here sometimes staring at the app wondering why I hate myself so much to put myself through this day after day. Clearly the game is doing something right to be feeding that part of my brain desperate for entertainment. But playing it just so painful, especially in arena. When I first started I could happily play arena near constantly, enjoying even when I lost because the battle system was so fun. Then I climbed higher, and the fun was lost. Not just lost, but driven out into the woods somewhere, tied to a tree and left to starve.
Arena for me now goes one of 2 ways. Either the game is a complete rng fest, infuriating me or my opponent with constant crits, stuns and dodges making our participation utterly pointless as the result could have simply been determined by a coin toss for how random it is. Or I face one of the worst people on this game; a rank-dropper, who having reached their desired arena level reequips their team of level 20 legendaries to have fun curb stomping someone like me who is still desperately trying to climb higher.
Constant gambling on rng is not fun. Getting obliterated by lvl 15 players looking for specific dna is not fun. If it werent for the small amount of positive feedback my brain gives me when I dart a dino I like or play a stress free friendly game I would have given up long ago. As it is until a better way to get incubators comes along it seems I am stuck banging my head against the rng wall of arena that demands I take 5 concussions before I can have 1 measly incubator.
On top of all this; I have to say that this is the 5th or 6th time I have tried to voice my frustration with the ludicrous state of arena, only to have my posts silenced and hidden. Most likely this one will be too, but on the small chance it is not, for a few minutes before it is taken down I want people to know how much this site is being gagged.
