I actually like boosts as they let you customize your team. I was disappointed when they were reset and I felt I lost a lot of boosts. But, I rolled with it. I read your justification and thought you seemed on the right track to make boosts more even and not as readily available. You explained how players could get just so many boosts per week but also noted that boosts would be for sale occasionally.
Occasionally has turned into an every day occurrence. At first I bought in. I grabbed some of the deals and spent a lot more than I normally would, thinking boost sales would be an uncommon thing. Boosts are on sale way too much and I am unwilling to pay for them each time, but I know players who will. I can only imagine that the reason you are selling them so much is because of the influx in revenue. Revenue is definitely important. And I look at my purchases as an investment in your game and an affirmation that you are trying to improve the game.
The problem exists in the long run. I’ve been VIP since June of 2018. I’m not a top tier battler, but I do sufficiently well for the game to remain fun. But now with boosts being on sale so often, I feel I just can’t keep up. I feel like I’m going to be left behind by players who are willing to spend hundreds of dollars a week to make a superior team. If I’m not going to remain competitive, the only real option for me is to stop playing the game. Please don’t read this as “do what I say or I quit”. I’m here simply to share my feelings about the game in an effort to provide you with information and a warning. I know I can’t be the only one feeling like this.
In addition, nerfing some of my favorite dinos on my team leads to further frustration. There goes more investment down the drain. It’s a game. And while nearly every game has some aspect of grinding, it is disheartening to see a resource you’ve spent many hours cultivating suddenly become obsolete.
A game should be fun. With the recent nerfs and the frequent boost sales, the enjoyment is rapidly diminishing for me. Thanks for reading.
