Well, here it is - I’ve peaked. I will never again be as high as I was just this last season. Using boosts I experimented (maxed out 3 creatures, DC, Max, Quetz) and made my way up to 35th (then removed the boosts once the season ended). Now, I no longer buy these overpriced travesties, nor do I pay for the piles of HC that it would take to open incubators one after the other after the other. All that adds up to the fact that I am now slowly losing ground to those who buy every boost, and apply it to their team. I suppose in the extremely long run (and if ludia doesn’t change a thing from now on HAH!) I will eventually freeplay my way up to equally boosted teams. Yeah, like that’ll happen.
So, knowing that my highly competitive era is over, I’m back to having fun. Trolling around, playing weird teams. Achieving other goals like completing the dinodex (yay nasuto week!) and my all L30 epic team (only 3 to go).
It was kind of fun running with the big dogs for a while. Heck, since the game started I think I’ve finished top 250 every time, top 100 two or three times, but now that you have to pay for the privilege of inhabiting the top of the leaderboard, I’m just going to get used to not being there. oh well. I should maybe be a little less obsessed with it anyway.
I still think it’s sad that no matter how much you grind, level, and battle… in the end it’s the big $$ that you need to put you over the top.
