I also keep the VIP as support for the game rather than the returns I get from it.
I still do not know too well how the theme of the purchase of Boost works, although I’m not particularly excited about artificially raising my dinos. I should read the corresponding metahub article.
I suppose that, like me, many of us are at the crossroads. If we do not buy Boost all the effort of months of searching will not help at all. If we buy them, three things can happen and none I like:
We will always be behind who spends more than us. This will make me angry.
We will have spent money to get back to the starting point against whoever spends just like us. This will seem useless to me.
We will gain an advantage over those who do not want or can not spend like us. This does not satisfy me.
Of course I think that the creators of the game must earn money to be able to maintain the game and this implies that who spends more money must have advantages. This was already the case until now but now there was a balance. Someone who hunted many hours without VIP could compete with someone who hunted less hours with VIP and with someone who did not hunt but spent thousands of dollars. Now, I think the balance is broken.
