For me playing was for the following reasons -
- Battling dinosaurs
- Hunting dinosaurs
- Leveling dinosaurs
Got me out of the house and exercising it was very fun and rewarding, but alas nothing lasts forever because the introduction of boosts made hunting feel almost worthless because your dinosaurs couldn’t compete with max boosted monsters no matter how much actual effort you put into your team.
Without a reason (other than exercise) to hunt, and when seeing your team get 0-3 by a base level Thor one shot your dinosaurs you spent countless hours levelling, it really then only came down to addiction at that point…but once an addict realises they are an addict, it gets easier to fight it and break free.
But when all is said and done, never forget it is a game, and a game is meant to be fun and entertaining, so if you are experiencing severe negative emotions, its no longer a game in your individual case and you should seek to fix it if possible…though sometimes the things that need to be fixed aren’t within your control and you simply have to part ways until it is fixed!
Im sure many would call me a pessimist, but I would also argue that once doesn’t become pessimistic unless something causes it to begin with…but honestly I consider myself a realist, because im always hopeful for change and I see massive potential in this game.
Oh and the art team is awesome, and so are the community and staff on the forum…though I do think the rules are a bit TOO restrictive, but hey thats me
