What gets me is the absolute reliance on random chance. Not just the battle RNG, but incubators, coins from the chests (at least the last few days), the xmas presents, spawns, even the stops. At no point to you ever feel on equal footing. Either you are flying high or getting dragged in the mud. For me, that is just crushing after this many months.
The satisfaction of getting a good roll is dwindling, while the epic inbubators full of seco and concav are just as expected. I actually notice I’m a more negative person around this game.
Not ready to move on yet because I love the subject matter, but the grind is starting to feel like a chore instead of entertainment.
