EDIT: It looks like the Ludia apologists and trolls are here to throw in their two cents without reading the rest of my posts in this thread, so I’ll say it here. I found a way to make this game fun again, so I didn’t quit. If you want to know how, scroll down. The following is my original post from several days ago.
I absolutely love all the Jurassic Park/World movies and I used to love this game (been playing since launch), but things have gotten so far out of hand that it’s time to move on.
Like most of you, I played this game for hours a day to hunt DNA and level my dinosaurs. Before this trainwreck of an update I was almost always in the 5,000 trophy range. Sometimes I even made it to top 300-500. When I had a losing streak I was always able to recover, even if I dropped below 4,900 trophies.
No more. After boosts were released I used saved HC to spread them evenly throughout my team just so I could try to keep up in the arena. I never spent a dime on boosts, so sure enough I started dropping steadily until last night when I ended up in Lockwood in the 4,400 range and decided that enough was enough. I left my alliance, removed all my “friends” (that are irrelevant now anyway since we no longer have to do friendly challenges for daily missions) and uninstalled the game.
I really wanted to keep enjoying this game, and I gave it many chances to improve but all I’ve been seeing lately is bad decisions fueled by greed. All our hard work leveling our dinosaurs has been erased by boosts, and if you can’t fork out $10 a day to keep up then you’re out of luck.
I will still read these forums because I really enjoy them. They’re much more entertaining than the game is at this point, but as far as games go it’s back to Pokemon GO for me. I can play as little or as much as I want, and I don’t feel like I have to spend hours a day farming coins just to evolve a Pokemon. Evolving in that game is free.
