I share your sentiment.
I try to balance “casual stress” with “having a good ol’ time” when it comes to my games. A couple of months ago I was SO INTO this game, and now I’ve (sort of, in a way, kind of) toned myself down because that shit ain’t healthy. But it’s the satisfaction of seeing my planning efforts pay off that makes me the happiest despite that small amount of stress. I’ve said this before:
And I stand by it. I have found a very comfortable niche in my relationship with War Dragons (never thought I’d say something like that, but here we are) and I have exactly zero issues with spending a teeny bit on it, because I enjoy it, damn it, and I can make my own decisions on what makes me the happiest.
Alas, I’m getting a bit off-topic.
I can see the flipside of my experience as well. There are people who spend thousands on this game; there are those who are ridiculously dedicated, too; and there are people who are both of these things. I don’t condone spending a Ferrari’s worth of money on a bunch of pixelated flying lizards in a game that doesn’t work half the time, but that’s how some people live and I’m not going to stop them.
Therefore, I can see how this sort of change can disrupt people. The banking system is a really big part of Atlas for every team with a castle. Every team works differently. Some may not like this change because they liked their way of doing things and their way worked for them; I don’t blame them. Other teams may like this change because it makes their life easier; I don’t blame them either!
At the end of the day, I just like to have my fun and occasionally sit back and watch the chaos with a bag of popcorn. I’m generally content with my decisions concerning my War Dragons experience.
I also just woke up from a few VERY vivid dreams, so I don’t even know if I’m awake right now. I’m preaching too much. Maybe I should take another nap.
