The rat has saved me money since its predecessor DG2 emerged, and absolutely since its its revamp in 1.6 (January). Prior to DG2 becoming an issue, I’d put a cash into the game, did Tapjoy offers, used any gift cards on iTunes, etc. In fact, after the brilliant and bold rebalance in 1.3 (the move away from the raptor meta), and following the release of the great in-game resource tools (strike events, alliances, daily missions), I increased my spending because the game experience had improved so much. But once DG2 really became a thing, and then upon reading that Dracoceratops was being redesigned to be "a better Dracorex Gen2” in the 1.6 release notes, I cut-off spending cash aside from the iTunes balance I had. With the 1-2 punch of the first boost mess in 1.7 (April), and Dracoceratops really becoming a factor at that time, I was fully done, and cutting-off cash spending completely. No way was I putting money into a game that made such a big move to P2W with boosts, and especially not something with a creature like Dracoceratops. There was a bit of a lift for me with the first boost reset (wasn’t perfect, but it was a respectable, major move by Ludia). Now, my view on the game has moved from disgust, to outright contempt, and 90% of it is because of Dracoceratops. Vile, wretched cancer on the game, it is.
