This is becoming really frustrating. I have not seen a player near my Ascension level in days (lvl 38, 1552 cups). Is this the way the game was designed? If I have any chance of advancing further it means gems will be required on every battle as a lot of the higher ranked opponents on my map have blessings activated. Some have several blessings activated.
I understand that they need to generate revenue for this game but it’s come to the point where spending money has become mandatory in order to play at all. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against buying gems to advance (I’ve spent around $40) but I am against spending money to play.
Other than fixing the matchmaking so I actually have an opponent on my map that I have a chance to beat once in awhile, I think their should be cooldown periods for the Blessings. Some Alliances are running them 24/7 which is basically making them untouchable.
So far my Alliance has had 3 people quit this game. I’m going to give the Dev’s a fair shot at making this game playable before I pull the plug and become #4. It’s a good game but definitely needs some refinement…
