What's Next?

I'm curious to hear what keeps veteran players in this game. I wouldn't consider myself a veteran, but now that act 5 is complete, eq is same old same old, my only motivation to keep playing is to open my next 6* featured. Haven't had any news about act 6 coming any time soon. As f2p I did one path of LoL and done. What drives people to stay in 5x5 alliances which require excessive grinding, donations, event minimum, and war stress?

    Well you can always expect to get more and new champions to rank them up to the max rank ... or complete labyrinth 100%

    Nothing for me. I dropped out of competitive alliance play post the 18.1 announcement. I am hitting paths in uncollected here and there but without some major change I do not see any need for alliance play anymore

    I don’t know if I am a veteran either. At 95% act 5 and never bothered lol

    AW season rewards to be honest is my main motivation. More 6* shards, t5basic shards and t2alpha shards to r5 another 5* or r2 a 6*

    I don't think everyone views war as "stress". I really enjoy the competitive nature of tier 1 AW, that's my main motivation.

    I suppose folks assume that Act 6 is coming and want to be ready for when it does. Personally, I go slow, am still working on Act 5 exploration, and enjoy the monthly event quests.

    What keeps me around is because I genuinely love the game and do enjoy the event quests day to day, Aq is a bit dull but I’m really enjoying using my new-ish time of Proxima, Corvus and nebula (4*, 5* and 6* in that order) who have good synergies together and are a ton of fun to fight with, I don’t “enjoy” Aw per se, but I look forward to the rewards so that’s why I do that. I don’t enjoy arena, I just do it for the rewards I see it as a chore.

    What else keeps me around is the future, I do love the game but I’m anxious about the future. I don’t know how much longer people will keep just taking what kabam are throwing at us. I don’t want the game to die but who knows when/if the community will reach breaking point.

    But, there are good things to come in the future, more uncollected, Aw seasons rewards and hopefully this summer, act 6. On a lower, more personal level, I am on a hunt for a 5* worthy of rank 5 or 6* of rank 2, so that keeps me playing. Just waiting for the 6* featured in a week, if I don’t get a rank 2 worthy champ I think I may bite the bullet and rank 5 my Corvus Glaive.

    A very long term goal is LoL 100%, ive done one run, but I’m not really thinking about it.

    Our alliance pretty much a mix of vets that enjoy the camaraderie more than the game now(1/3 been together for 3yrs) and some newer players that do the same and appreciate not having demands to win, donate, or participate in everything with worries of being kicked. Slower progression yes, but definitely no unecessary demands or stress on members "real lives".

    For me personally, "whats next" happens to be observing others progress and lending a helping hand when needed more so than my own progression.

    I enjoy the new event quests to see and fight the new champs. Plus, war seasons has kept things interesting. But with all the issues popping up lately on Kabam's part with champ changes, it's starting to lose my interest. They could probably keep my interest if they came out with a new AQ season, but I am sure more bugs would accompany that release as usual
  • The only thing that has kept me in the game has been playing with the alliance. The friendships which have come from that.

    The game itself not so much. I've stayed in spite of the game just because of the friendships.

    The game was pay to win, now it’s pay to play. Outside of grinding master/UC each month, the rewards are terrible in things like aq. Aw is broken due to bs champs you have to buy crystals for (boat load of money) or grind for(which will also cost you money). they refuse to revamp the list of champs that Are complete trash. Not much left.

    Some fixes:
    1. Fix/buff old champs to be able to combat these new bank breakers they release each month, making more characters useful and make ppl want to rank up that Shulk, carnage, KK, etc.
    2. revamp AQ. It’s stale. Period.
    3. Monthly calander is a joke.make it worth logging in. Make daily assignments in the calendars for each day that add rewards like pots or shards. Do everyday, get a crystal for awakening stones shards or a champ.

    Once the novelty and newness of the game wears off, and you start looking at time frames of 2-3 months to max rank up one champ and even longer to max sig them if they are good the game becomes a tedious job that just sucks time out of your day.

    Lots of players have quit or scaled back their time in the game, but there are lots of new players beginning their cycle of newness in the game and eventually they will get to the point many vets are at and they’ll quit or scale back too.

    I’ve resigned myself to the fact that the game that Kabam is putting out is the game Kabam wants the community to play.

    Good Luck and have fun
  • My post in this topic got deleted because it talked about the truths of gaming addiction and the way free to play games are designed without necessarily having the greatest of morals.

    Guess it wasn’t good for business and a little too close to the bone.

    A lot of having gone missing.... they must have violated the forum rules somehow, I won't speculate...
