I’ll tell you why it won’t stop: people with under-levelled teams are deceivingly more powerful than those naturally obtaining them for free over time with max-level teams. I’m over here knocked to 5700 (well, just under that) and all my opponents for the past several days whilst being here unable to climb back up and even ATTEMPT to reach Nublar Shores for the first time this month, are all 6200+ trophy count.
Boosts are literally PAY TO WIN. It doesn’t matter what strategy I use if boosting with sheer brute force of number escalation has more impact than any other factor. I was 43 trophies from the 6k mark, I really wanted to get that extra Blue DNA and it slowly but surely led to completely more and more unfair losses that I had ZERO AGENCY over due to grossly over-boosted creatures that completely invalidated any and all choices I made.
Even just battling today, lost 14 times mixed with so few wins I literally cannot recall any of them, and I checked their profiles, all of these people, max boosts as they could for their creatures and, again, all were 6200+ trophies.
The arena disparity has me raging so hard I can practically hear Ludia saying, ‘hey…HEY…I see you aren’t putting half of your paycheque into boosts, it’d sure be a SHAME if you couldn’t even get a single takedown for most of your battles…’.
The people who enable and encourage Ludia’s sales outside of basic saving non-purchased Hard Cash know it works so they don’t see a problem with it while it creates a desperate situation of futility and frustration for those of up who get upset at complete bull-honky losses to consider doing the same, planting the temptation and further preying upon people who should never have to experience these issues in the first place.
