Why not increase the coins provided by drops and free incubators so people will continue to dart and level up dinos that are not apex / alpha listed?
I’m at level 10 and have been playing for a while. made it into arena 7 and hover around 3300. My interest in playing dropped way down because I cannot “afford” to use my coins to level up dinos who will not be used in battle in arena 7. Why? because I need to save “drop” and incubator coins to level up future battle worthy dinos (apex, alpha, etc).
I bought the monthly VIP to get bucks from drops and increase distance. I was saving up the bucks to buy coins but the other night I tapped on a $670 incubator just to see what was being offered and instead it “purchased instantly” and gave me junk DNA. Crap. Cleared out the bank account. Won’t do that again.
So if i’m not able to level up these common dinos then why bother to dart them anymore? Yet these are the dinos I see while I am out and about during the daylight hours. So why bother to really play before 8 pm when the raptors come out?
For those who don’t understand the cost to level up a decent common dino let me give you an example. I have a level 18 Euoplocephalus. I see these guys EVERYWHERE on my way to and from work so I was giving myself extra commute time to stop and dart them. To level this up to 19 costs 30,000 coins. To evolve it to level 18 already cost 68,000 coins.
So I now limit my play time to nights and catch velociraptors and save coins to level him up to 21. I have used 138,000 coins to get him to 20. After 8 pm Velo just show up in the area neighborhoods and I am getting good at darting his predictable running pattern. Why am I mentioning this? Because I am trying to figure out how to get 50,000 coins to level him up from 20 to 21. Why do I need a level 21 velo? Because MrBerrez (or whatever BOT name you get as an opponent) keeps leading off with a level 20 velociraptor and the game ALWAYS lets his level 20 go first and clears me out.
Hopeful a developer reads my post and understands that unless this changes there will be few long term players.
