After the initial excitement I’m having a “what’s the point?” day today.
Tried out the tournament - took 10 battles to win 1 (didn’t want to quit on zero trophies) - I don’t have a bad team but only 3 creatures have boosts and very few at that. I have about 100 of each boost so I could spread a bit of love, but for the rewards on offer - what’s the point?
Battled in the arena to get my DBI; haven’t got it yet - just about every team I face now has at least one tier 7 speed creature where my highest is 6 and if speed doesn’t win it for them there is an overleveled Thor and/or Rat to save the day for them. Soon I could boost one team member to tier 7 but what’s the point? More Miragaia DNA (whoop de do) and its only 1 of my 8 - which will soon be outsped again after a few more rounds of boost sales.
Tried hunting and darting some stuff - but what’s the point? Add another level to a team member and watch it get destroyed by the same creature, 5 levels lower, but boosted. My dinodex is complete so no challenge there.
Thought about mixing in a few up and coming team members (looking at you Gemini, Maxima, etc), but what’s the point? Unboosted they will get destroyed and if I use the boosts then they’ll still face the same issues as my main squad.
Thought about putting in a whole new B Team but what’s the point - unboosted it will be a long hard slog to drop to a competitive level.
Congrats to Ludia, your strategy worked - for a brief minute I actually considered sinking a pot of money so I could keep up with the arms race - but what’s the point?
Thought about going and spending hours playing another game to get HC via TapJoy - but I don’t want to play some other game - I want to play JWA.
So many things to do but so little point. Speed boosts have destroyed this game and 1.9 is not going to change that.
Oh sure, new creatures to find and new hybrids to create to once again complete my dinodex - that will keep my interest for a little while. Campaign mode - again, something new to work on but for how long? Remember achievements? Set and forget …
I still enjoy the camaderie, seeing a familar “face” in the arena, helping my alliance hit 5/5 and dropping the odd bit of comedy gold in the forums but …
(You still reading?? Really?? Shows the game isn’t holding your interest if you want to read my drivel).
Perhaps its just Post Patch Note Blues, maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and feel inspired again to play - or maybe, just maybe I won’t even open the game.
