OP Title: “I still refuse to BOOST, why?”
TLDR: Then don’t read it, skip to the next post.
I do not refuse to, I just am not right now. I have not boosted any Dino but have been collecting and storing all that have been offered in the game, non-purchased that is.
Couple reasons. First is I am not sure where the meta is going with boosts. I would hate to use them on today’s beast only to have Ludia change the game when the smoke clears. I prefer to hold on and wait to see what happens in the coming weeks. Will I be that much further behind? Not really, I still have all boosts in storage ready to use.
It is a dramatic change in the game, no denying that. Who is to say they won’t introduce something new that will benefit more from being boosted? What if they nerf all boosts and change the meta again? What if being boosted becomes a disadvantage? Hey, one thing we know from experience is anything can happen.
I am also very curious (yeah, but I am not a cat) where my un-boosted team will land with the boost meta. I was at a very stable trophy count for many months. As I slowly leveled up, the game evolved so that stronger team kept me in the same trophy range. What Trophy range will my team land in now? It is going to take several weeks to find out. I think that will be a great indicator of just what influence boosting has on the game.
And, I am not going to play the who can spend more game. Been there, done that. I have no issues with folks who do, more power to them! I am just not going to go that route again. You can never just spend a little, you have to keep on pumping into it. Just one more, then it will be enough… yeah, never works, does it?
I did not quit or even threaten to. I did not cancel VIP. What I did was change my game play. I do not hunt or play near as much as I did before 1.7, not even close. Hunting currently has lost its allure and reason as in there is no reason to go out and toss a few thousand darts a day. I sure as heck do not want to level anything up and enter the mass hysteria that is the upper levels! I am at old max storage of about everything I had around me to dart, I am not lacking for much, perhaps some Epic DNA. So really no reason to play except strike towers and perhaps some of the Rare and Epic strike creatures. Couple hundred darts a day tops does it. And spin enough drops as I walk around to max out daily coins.
So, I am going to bide my time and see what develops over the coming weeks.
