No, you’re not the only player who feels this way. A bunch of people dislike (or even outright despise) the Mods.
I dislike Mods as well and choose not to keep any on hand, in my inventory (unless I absolutely have to for certain events). But even so- I would stop shy of calling Mods utterly useless; especially since at least some other players do enjoy them. In short- Mods are garbage to me, but I do choose to respect the fact that others like them.
I wouldn’t know for sure as I haven’t even tried all of the news Mods out, but to me at least they’re all equally bad (Thats just my personal opinion on Mods).
Agreed completely with the issue itself- I do notice that the “prize wheel,” (if you’d even call it that) for Mods typically lands on the same one or two Mod/s every time. I understand your frustration on this point (if you’re searching for variety), but personally this one doesn’t matter to me because I don’t want any Mods.
But as far as a “sustainable business model,” I think you’re taking this a bridge too far. Ludia’s been using this prize wheel system for years and the game’s doing pretty well. Even if you and I don’t like the Mods the game will certainly keep trucking along.
This (What we choose to do about Mods) is where I think you and I will diverge on this matter… I don’t like Mods either but I also don’t believe they’re worth quitting the game over. I’m still enjoying the game just fine by mostly ignoring Mods.
In the end of the day I do respect your opinion, but Mods just aren’t that serious to me to quit this game.
