Most players of JWTG go through the following progression of mid to end game goals:
1)Hit park level 60 and CoT
2)Finishing in Dom
3)Hatching super hybrids
5)Complete the game missions
6)Get one of every dino
7)Complete the Beacon
8)Unlock everything (excluding VIPs)
9)Teams of Inodraptors L20+
10)L40 of all Dinos
11)Filling all of the paddocks (Edit this one was added late.)
To get to #4 you’ll need to play for 6+ months.
I’m holding off on #4 to keep a balanced lineup.
With the news of this thread Metriorhynchus unlock that some common/rare/super rare/legendary dinos won’t get unlocks ever again, #8, something that takes a couple of years becomes impossible. At least the way other end game long time players have done it.
I wanted to be in this game for the long haul (years), but if I can only complete it 99% and not 100%, why would I want to put that kind of effort in?
I understand that the unlock pattern was adjust to increase game revenue potential, but now that I’m approaching 1 year of playing (10 months) and I have a glass ceiling.
Why should I continue past hatching Indoraptors?
The rest are cool I checked them all off items, but I can’t.
Once I get past #5 or #6 (likely in the next couple of months), I plan to hang up VIP. It won’t help me finish the game anymore. And I’ll just check in from time to time for new unlocks.
I strongly suggest that you add in the rest of the unlocks. Maybe make a Max park level event for them and drip them out 1 a week or 1 a month (Clash of the Tiny Terrors? And we vote on it?)
If you at least slowly let them out, those of us who want the unlocks, can get them. Those of us who will pay for them, will have already paid.
I doubt anything will happen in the time I cancel VIP and down shift to the slow lane, but other “post reshuffle” players like my self will check things off the list. And when they get to the 1year plus items and see the one glaring one they can’t do… they may ask why continue? Just like me.
I want to go all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Why are you telling me I can’t, just because I started playing too late?
Edit: my OCD of complete the game 100% want me to. But you changes the design so I can’t. I’ll do the few cool things I want to do and move on. Others feel the same way. You’re messing with my 100% completion-ist OCD. It doesn’t like that.
