I’m quite disappointed in this too. I too have heavily forged spells and still too much HP left on these. Its not the towers that bug me so much as the weak gates. Feels like being set up to fail.
If the logic is only those with the best gear win, the the divide between the weak and the strong will open. Not sure how this can be fixed. Flare was told forging would unbalance the game. How will new players ever be able to compete with long term players.
Folks ask for harder levels when they have gear that can deal with the towers. Its like the rich asking for higher prices because they feel like everything is too cheap.
These events should help close gaps and not open them. They should be fun and rewarding. Who cares if 80% of players get first. They all spend gems to get there didn’t they?
Personally i missed a tower again, so i went into “no care” mode and did my best while saving gems. I’m not interested in spending gems for legendary chests. This will be my strategy going forward as well.
I’m interested to see how new tower levels will “balance” the game again.
Congrats to those who succeeded.
