Hate to say it, but it looks like this place has turned into a pack of piranhas waiting for chances to take shots at players who play the game well. Sure, the game unfortunately includes more “pay to stay competitive” aspects than it used to (boosts), but that wasn’t something chosen or even wanted by the players. It takes tons of dedication and hard work to build a max level team, but there are plenty of them out there. Being able to consistently battle well enough to climb that high takes intelligence and skill. Congratulations are always in order for players with the perseverance to win a tournament or season. When top 50 are posted, that includes players from many alliances.
Here’s an idea… instead of taking out your saltiness on fellow players, write about what you’d like to see changed in this game and direct it at the people that actually have a say on these things. If you really want to get their attention, do it as a review on the Apple or Google app stores.
