I just wanted to share my experience, and see if other players took similar decisions while playing the game to enhance their experience.
Grinding coins and DNA to level up creatures to very high levels takes an astonishing amount of time, effort and, eventually, money. At some point, the game looked pointless to me: so much to do just to raise one creature one level up discouraged me, and my playtime was gradually vanishing.
That’s when I took a “decision”: I decided to consider level 20 at the top level for my creatures instead of the in-game level 30 limit. Since I am more a collector than a competitor, that decision turned me more motivated to level up my best creatures to their “top level”, and complete my collection of “top-level” creatures.
The level 20 limit offers a couple of advantages: access to uniques, good battles with a stable meta, and, mostly, a way more reachable goal. It also offers less frustration in case of a meta change due to some creatures boost or nerf from Ludia: in such case, all I have to do is to adjust my team, thanks to my ever-extending collection of level 20 creatures. As a example, my Dracoceratops was already level 19 when it suddenly became meta-relevant. In other terms, I was ready!
So, has anyone here took decisions of that kind to keep enjoying the game? What limits or rules have you set for yourself?
