Greetings Ludia Team,
I LOVE THIS GAME!!!
I play nonstop as long as i have energy then wait 1 hour and play some more. Thank you very much for a GREAT game.
After you progress and level up the dragons it costs a lot of FISH to level up again, this creates the situation of a full roster of 1*-2* dragons and NO FISH. Then I have to use my fish NOT to level the dragons I love and want to play with but level the worst dragons just so i can spend 1500 fish to delete dragons and clear the roster, so i can hatch more eggs and breed more dragons.
I and a Ph.D. in economics and I understand that the increased cost of leveling simply outperformed the rate of fish acquisition to a point of collapse of the system. If the intent was to make the user use runes to buy fish and thus increase the profits of the app, then the idea is correct and working. But if this was just a simple error in creating the economics of the game it can be solved in 1 of 2 ways.
Simple way: create a delete dragon button, the user can delete 1* or 2* dragons of the color he does not want and continue leveling his favorite dragons. Call it releasing dragons into the WILD as opposed to releasing into the academy for exp.
Complicated way: a total overhaul of the fish increase from leveling dragons and creating diminishing increase instead of a linear +50 fish for 1 level. Something like freshly trained dragon is 1500 per level, at level 2 1550 fish (+50) but at level 3 1599 (+49) at level 3 1647 (+48) and so on. I am not sure about the model but the idea is to lower the amount of fish needed. There is of course the over end of a capped fish, my fish was capped almost always until the level 16 and the unlock of Breedery. And now it is always at 0 because I need fish to breed and to level my 3* dragons and to delete dragons (Deleting: 2000fish +scales to train and then 1500 per dragon to delete)
TO ALL PLAYERS PLEASE comment on the post and tell the Development team if you have the same problem. As I understood from the dedicated discord channel all high level players have the same problem and are forced to spend fish to delete dragons instead of leveling the dragon they actually want to level.
