I started in beta so i already have a head start compared to others. My forum account is 34 days old and i was already playing by that time.
And once again; you don’t have to ‘pay’ for them if you read my post properly. Again; if you pay in JWA you pay to progress faster. Anyone is able to get any dinosaur without having to pay for anything; paying for coins,… Just makes you progress faster. I also get extra cash / day compared to a non-VIP so i do buy extra coin in the form of speeding up incubators. Im not saying 50€ incubators are over-priced but here i simply say; just don’t buy it and play the game. Those dinosaurs can be caught in the wild; you don’t have to buy them in an incubator lul. Thats the actual game; catching things in the wild.
I happen to buy just VIP since i like the game and i dont mind spending only 10€ a month on a virtual game im enjoying and spending loads of time on. Same goes for PoGo; spend an incubator left and right to speed up the progress. If even that is the point players are already complaining about i guess you’re just a cheapskate and you need to quit playing f2p games, forever. Again; i get double the coin capacity / day than a non-vip… So i can evolve double as much dinosaurs than any non-VIP can… So i progress faster. It is a free to play game; you can’t expect everything to be free. There are people on the other side with families too who need food, drinks, a house, a job, money,… at the end of the day just like you and me.
Does that make me win all the time? Am i ‘Oh so OP’ now? No, absolutely not. I still lose battles because my opponents outsmart me with other dinosaurs. Arena 7 AI still brutally slays and kicks my ass every day since it has level 27 dinosaurs. But that doesn’t make me quit and i go out even more when i can to catch more. I still lose to other players who put in way more time than me they already have legends, they outlevel me left and right. You people need to get you can’t be #1 all the time, instantly. Go look at the top 200 and look back at my deck. You will be glad to be matched with me vs other players. Every dinosaur has a max level at some point; so… Again. It is not pay 2 win; i can buy faster progress but anyone can get at this point if they spend a little more time into the game. And if you actually like the game spend a little bit of money on it as well; totally not necessary in the long run but it helps the developers to create even more content and an awesome game. Again; free to play… No money = no game AT ALL. Games like these are very unforgiving for those who can’t spend either loads of time (and not pay) or a little money (which ‘saves’ me time) in the form of VIP and still quite some playtime. I play minimum 2h a day at least, every day. No, not only from inside my house. Those 2h are by going outside actively hunting dinos. If you even can’t spend that amount on games like these; i will guarantee you you will have a very long time ahead. It is a pure grind game like any other; so go grind or go home. Go outside, EVERY day and come back in a month. Show me the progress. Thats how you get things done in JWA.
