I know a lot have people here may have been unlucky but these breeding odds are too high. Let me explain my argument before you say “I haven’t gotten anything since the update” or “I bred for months and didn’t make any progression”. Yep I understand, but here is why the update is bad.
If you’re breeding without ever speeding up yes you will end up getting more 5 stars (I saw a chart and it averaged about one 5 star every 20 days or so with the new odds). HOWEVER, people who used to spend money on this game had to spent A LOT to get ahead, like thousands of $$$… Now? You can spend $50 and be way ahead of anyone who is F2p. So essentially this update becomes a P2W update.
To give you an example, I had a little over 10k runes that I bought on a level up special about a month ago and I have been waiting on something good (like one of the 10% 5* odds drafts they do occasionally). I saw the new breeding odds and decided to take advantage. Within 3 days I have gotten 3 sawmaws and a fleetsleet, and i still have 5,000 runes!!! I have been limited on speed breeding by fish, but once you speed breed id say 2k+ runes you pretty consistently are getting 5*s. That’s $20 guys… you want this game to be P2W? Keep supporting the breeding odds. Personally I spend a lot of money on apps that I enjoy playing so by putting this out there understand I want whats best for the long term of the app, even if it means that I have to spend more for a dupe.
You might say “Spires you are so lucky!”, I would tell you I have a few clannies in similar situations as I am, and they have seen the same results - if not better - than I, but believe what you want
My suggestion is to keep the system that we have but lower the chances of a 5* from any breed to 1% MAX.
Enjoy the odds while they are here because if something isn’t done every F2p player will be gone within a few months.
EDIT: After reading and responding to everyone’s comments I think I have a solution; COMPLETELY GET RID OF SPEED BREEDING.
Thanks for reading.
