What’s being done to keep WDs attractive to get former players to return to the game? For instance, a player takes a long hiatus from the game. Player returns and there are new towers, many new dragon tiers, and none of their dragons are relevant any longer at their current (old) level. Their base is now “old school”. Why should those players come back? They’re starting all over, but at their “old” level with old dragons, flying against bases they were not designed to fly against.
Why should those players come back? Because currently this situation applies to me and, lemme tell ya, the transition is bad, bad enough for me to question why I returned in the first place. If a former player were to ask me today if they should pick the game back up, I’d most likely tell them no, too much has changed and you’re relearning the game, redesigning your base, and flying your dragons against even decently constructed bases will be like kicking rocks at missile launchers.
Don’t get me wrong, there have been some incredible improvements to the game in the past 2-3 years, some really impressive improvements, however I feel that a lot of the changes negatively impact the odds of former players returning to the game and sticking with it.
P.S. - Yes, I played WDs back during the timeframe of PG offering players X dragons to return to the game. That is NOT what I’m looking for. I’m not looking for anything. I play because my wife tells me too and that is indeed a true story.
