Frustration with drops and characters

So this is a vent post. I just opened up my third 5* after working over a month(maybe two) plus for one since I'm not in an alliance and really don't think I want to be. My first two were SL and Nebula, ok pulls but nothing great. Today I just got an awesome pile of complete trash in IM. To say I'm incredibly irritated and frustrated is an understatement. I'm really sick of getting nothing to help me between 4 and 5*s for where I'm at in this game, and the fact I've got three tech 5's is really unbelievable to me. I know it happens, I know SL is good when duped, but c'mon. Between these and the awesome 4* pulls of Groot, SIM, Electro & HB, I'm so incredibly frustrated to completely waste the time I've put into this game. If they think these types is situations help people invest into their game, I think they need to fire whoever is in charge of all that. I'm to the point of just stepping away for a while, because these types of situations are completely demoralizing. I'm not looking for pity, that's the last thing I want. I'm looking for any advice from people who may still be playing who have dealt with these situations and what they did, because I feel like I'm spinning my wheels. It takes an amazing amount to get me this frustrated, but I guess feeling like your wasting your time will do it. Anyways, thanks for any advice and good luck to all those playing and PLEEEEAAASE have better luck on your pulls then me.

    Well, at least you have SL. Now all you need is to dupe him

    Dude, I just pulled an Iron Patriot and wanted to throw my damn phone across the room. I understand your feeling of completely wasting your time after pulling utter garbage. Unfortunately, Kabam doesn't have a care in the world. Hell, they can't even make sure that the game is completely stable for more than 24 hours, and look at how much they care about the entire community complaining day-in and day-out.......crickets. As long as the money flows inward, they will only do as much as is needed to keep it from decreasing. If we could trade, I'd do Iron Man for Iron Patriot straight-up LOL

    1) I know you don't want to be in an alliance but no alliance = slow progress guaranteed.
    2) I don't understand what are you getting so frustrated about honestly. You have so far only opened 3 5* crystals out of which you got SL and Nebula. I have seen people taking unduped 5* Nebula to R4. She is that good if you learn how to play her. SL is also decent even unduped. My first three pulls with IronFist, IM and Civil Warrior followed by YellowJacket, Loki and Guillotine.
    3) Patience is virtue as my next 5* pulls were Magik, IceMan, GR and Magik. Point is, no need to get so worked up. You have to learn to play with the cards you're dealt with and your fortune will change sooner or later.

    @_ASDF_ That sucks man, I'm sorry to hear it. And I know how absurd it sounds to vent about pulling SL right of the bat, but that was a long time ago and a lot of bad pulls since, and to be honest using him unduped I'm just not seeing anything great. I'm probably just mis-using him, but nonetheless it's irritating. This IM crushed me, I can't lie. I was really hoping for even semi-decent and was so afraid to open this thing I waited over 10 days and only did so because I have a TON of expiring ISO. I don't even think I'm going to put anything into him honestly. Anyways, thanks for the insight and I truly hope you got and are getting great pulls now. Good luck.

    @Bahamut I agree man, I was slightly hopeful but knew it was a longshot. It seems so far away though! Haha. Good luck playing and thanks.

    @KillSwitch I can't lie man, I was right there too, but felt more dejected than anything. It's so tough to put in time and effort and basically get slapped across the face when you open something like a 5* crystal. I shouldn't be worried and filled with dread for something so miniscule, but I do everytime it seems with this game. I'm hopeful they rework a lot of these guys like they did with LC and RH, because it's absolutely needed. They don't need to be god-tier or even close, just usable. I also tend to agree, I believe kabam just cares about money and nothing else lately, and I hate to say that, but with the recent changes to the featured 5* crystal, intro of 6*'s and the 5* arena on top of the mostly just completely heinous deals, I just dont see much else showing me anything to the contrary. And I would gladly trade for your IP as well if possible, at least he's more colorful. Haha. I hope your luck gets better and good luck playing!

    You need to join an alliance. Your progression will remain very slow compared to everyone in an active alliance.

    I absolutely understand what you are saying about an alliance, and I'm ok with that. I don't think slow progress bothers me, it's the feeling like I'm wasting my time to a certain extent. It's fun to play, but I hope to get rewards that have a bit more usefulness to me between not just 5*s, but 4's as well, which have been hideous too. And I agree on Nebula, I like using her, but it's such a bummer to have all tech that probably aren't really my playstyle to begin with. I've gotten decent with her and will take her up when I understand her even more. The power drain/lock just seems to be Egyptian to me for some stupid reason. I appreciate the advice and like I said, I think it's just bugging me that the last three major pulls for me were I believe Groot, SIM & IM between 4 & 5*'s. Do you think IM is worth ranking up? Thanks again and good luck going forward, glad to see your pulls have gotten better!

    @_ASDF_ wow, that puts it into perspective. Thanks for posting that. It makes me realize everything is relative and I should be happy with what I got, and sooner or later it all turns around. Good luck moving forward.

    Don’t want to hear about your one crappy pull.

    Holy ocean man, I'm sorry. That is absolutely bonkers. I would probably go nuts if that happen. I really, really hope they at least make Carnage usable like they said they were going to late last year so it's not a complete loss for you. I really hope your luck gets better. Wow.

    It's all about volume. Grind arena to get cheap 4* and 5* shards and open a bunch of crystals.
  • Wsm10Wsm10 Posts: 169
    @Blaargo I understand what you're saying, as Nebula isn't too bad after you understand her, which for some stupid reason I'm having issues being consistent understanding her power control, but I'm really not seeing SL as anything to get excited about when unduped. What am I missing? I really would like to understand how to use him effectively now, because I rarely use him. I also am frustrated because of both 4 and 5* pulls have been hideous for the last few months, nebula and SL were a while ago. As far as an alliance, the time and knowing 29 other people are depending on me when I am still learning a TON is pushing me away some, but I get it. Like I said before, I'm not worried about the time it takes. I can't because it's my choice not to do the alliance thing. It's just the feeling of not progressing with the rewards all being up to RNG. Anyways, thanks for the info and good luck playing.

    @godsquad891 thanks for the insight. I'm happy you got a few dupes and I hope your luck continues to go in the right direction.

    @colbyscipio987 I think that's what is throwing me for a loop, three 5* and three tech, none of them my playstyle. I know it happens, but it seems so absurd that it would happen this way. It's why I really, really, REALLY hate leaving everything to RNG, and gives way to conspiracy theories and all that jazz. Good luck playing.

    @RagamugginGunner absolutely man, I appreciate the advice. I need to get more 4*'s because I don't have enough yet to really grind the arenas to get the rank rewards unlocked, but it'll happen. Good luck playing.
