Our alliance ‘Heroes of the realm’ ranked 200 is in a tough battle for first place with Empire of the Sun. When we finally went head to head yesterday for 1st place we went to sleep leading 65k to 51k but woke up to find we’d lost and they made a late surge to 73k skulls, 12k more than they made in any of their battles in day 1-3. Good for them. But… Their highest trophy player had attked our highest trophy player repeatedly using scrolls to the point our player made over 100 gems from this one player, who was scrolling to beat her, then no doubt buying skulls in the chamber. Today we are in a rematch and with 7 hours to go are ahead 70k to 62k. Again this player is attacking our player with scrolls and to a lesser extent their second player is doing the same. She has made over 200 gems and been attacked by those two over 45 times. How much food did that cost? How many gems did the scrolling cost? Exactly how many skulls did these two buy in the chambers? Thousands?
This is skill? Or pay to win? Certainly good for Flare’s revenues but bad for the integrity of the game. Skulls in chests was a terrible idea. Its one thing to lose to a good opponent who just flat out beats you. One respects that. But its not a good feeling if you feel victory goes to the highest bidder.
