Ditto on the rebalance point. I could easily spend 70k coins (that I don’t have) just to use the DNA I’ve already accumulated, and that number grows daily. At this pace, it’ll be years before I ever see any of these hybrids I read so much about in the forums (indoraptor, stegodeus, and so on), and I’ll never make it out of the Badlands in the Arena, because for every battle I win I lose 4-5 it seems, because my dinos are stuck because I can’t afford to advance them.
I finally won two consecutive rounds in the arena last night, for the first time in what seemed like weeks (and was probably at least a week) and I am in there daily. I got within one win of finally making it to Lockdown, and then suffered enough defeats close together (dealt in many cases by bots I suspect, since my opponents seemed a little too perfectly matched to my deficits most of the time for it to be random) that in a span of barely over 24 hours I damn near ended up back in Nublar Jungle.
I could be wrong about this, but it seems to me that if the balance between how many coins I can reasonably find or earn, and how many I would like to spend on my dinos, were not so stacked against me (I am living on disability, so I can’t pour a ton of real cash into a game) then I might not have to get annihilated repeatedly for several hours before I enjoy a brief victory here and there. And then get crushed half a dozen times before I get another win.
I’m not suggesting the game should be so watered down and easy that a 5 year old can have a level 30 indominus rex in 3 days. But… I’m slowly reaching a point where making any progress in the game (and, yanno, having actual fun) feels like this mirage, on the other side of this chasm that gets wider and wider, till I wonder if I should just uninstall the app and drop the whole thing. I’m pretty sure that striking a more reasonable balance between how much coin one must spend, and how much one can reasonably find/ win/ earn, would go a long way to fixing that issue.
