alright so i still dont have access to atlas because i dont play in such a team at the moment (for the love of god give everyone access already! … but thats a different topic.)
because i dont have access i cant even participate in the discussion about the proposed buffs to dragon rider gear which you can find here: Proposed Buffs To Dragon Rider Gear
@pgEcho why on earth do you limit the discussion about buffing dragon rider gear to only atlas players, those changes affect everyone. we are all familiar with dragon riders and gear since its in the season branch and the changes are directly conntected to the balancing which is going on right now. youre excluding 4/5 of the playerbase from this important balance conversation! i want to post my opinion because, I too, think that your balance approach (new tower levels + buffed dragon rider gear) is ruining the game!
what the majority of players have posted in the discussion is as it is. balance is not completed, harbingers are way too op, its not fixed by adding new tower levels and definitely not by buffing rider gear!
my thoughts on the balance start here:
the shortened intervals in which you release new dragons and towers have widened the cleft between medium spenders and whales so much that this change of adding new tower levels only affects a hand full of players (only those that already have a maxed base). only those 5 players with lvl 65/70 maxed bases will be able to stop harbringers (however it is very questionable if they will be able to stop 2 of them, which is VERY important during wars). your “balance proposal” only affects the blue-whales that can afford to max their bases again, which will cost like what, 5k euros? just to "balance the op harbringer tier? what is wrong with you guys.
99.995% of the other players will still be flatrolled by harbs even if they are medium to high spenders and your “balance proposal” will have NO effect for them. it will be even worse with the buffed dragon rider gear.
acquiring harbs is a lot cheaper than maxing your base. now dont increase the cost of new dragons, theyre expensive enough!.. whats the point of spending 1k euros a month if even that doesnt get me close to end game.
youre introducing new towers and dragons every 2-3 months. at the PRICE TAG they come with its RUINING YOUR GAME. 99.995% of the players dont want to / cant pay that much!
remember when gold dragons and lvl 30 towers were the cap for half a year or even longer? when plat tier and lvl 35 towers came out it was a fraction of the cost to max, but even then it widened the gap of spenders and non-spenders.
this got worse as you continued to release tiers and the more you released the more the spender-nonspender gap shifted to a spender-whale gap.
the way you roll out dragons and towers right now widens the gap between HIGH SPENDERS AND BLUE WHALES. we told you this for months and you continued. now its at a point where even high spenders give up because they cant keep up the spending.
what kind of new player do you think wants to spend 30k euros to catch up to the blue whales? its a fail from the start, no point to try. at this rate your game is going down!
geez stop being so goddamn greedy. 5k euros for towers and Xk euros for dragons is way too much every 2-3months!! echo your “balancing proposal” to fix this mess is NOT the way to go.
