How to handle burnout

There is a lot going on in the contest right now, and it feels somewhat overwhelming. Monthly event, dungeon, variant difficulty on top of the norm of arena, aq, aw, and LOL.

I know it's not mandatory to do it all, but I feel pressure to do it to stay competitive. This even goes to the cyber Monday deals, and the massive advantage it gives those who could afford it. I am not in the position to spend so I passed and got criticized for not getting the deals.

I still like the game and have a solid roster. I am hoping to get some recommendations or advice on staying in the contest, but getting out of the pressure of being connected to the game all of the time.

Thanks, and best wishes to all.

    Do not play it all. Get a retired Alliance
  • Don't do alliance for a while take a break from aq and aw, just do what you want

    With the amount of time you’ve spent thinking about, writing and editing this post you could have moved 5 times in AQ and AW.

    Cyber Monday deals can be useful and we’re good deals. But I’m in Plat1 and have never spent $150 cumulatively in this game.

    My recommendation to you is to quit immediately. I doubt you’re above gold 2 and it’s only gonna be harder for you should you proceed. Don’t do it.

    I played competitively for the last 1.5 years and recently left my alliance and only focused on daily log ins and eq whenever I feel like it. Holy cow, it is so lovely to not have the constant thought of alliance events and it's so great to only log in when you truly feel like playing. Makes the game way more enjoyable.....until you don't have resources to rank someone up

    I just made my own ally for people who don’t want to play competitively anymore. It’s pretty chill

    Dungeons are not worth it

    Stick to AQ and arena only. AQ for rewards. Just grind arena as much as you can. In the long run you will rack up tons of units from arena crystals.

    If your alliance is giving you issues for not spending then maybe it is time to find another alliance to join. You should never be pressured to spend in the game. As for content, do the content you feel you get the most from. Not everyone does dungeons and other side quests (labs). Remember no one is making you do anything you don't want to, this is a game and you are supposed to have fun playing it.
  • You should never be pressured to spend in the game.

    Basically this. If you feel you're being pressured to do things you don't want to do in the game, especially spending cash you can't afford to spend, it is time to remove that element from your gameplay. Even if that element is your alliance.

    I'm dropping out of the AW/AQ grind and taking a break from my alliance. I've got 1,600 t4cc frag crystals and 30 full crystals, plenty of cats in inventory except for cosmic, but I've got a r5 Medusa and a r3 Corvus. AW rewards are fairly irrelevant, so the only thing I will really miss is Glory for t2a shards. I may join our relaxed sister ally, but I may be too relaxed even for them.
