I was late to see the other topic and unfortunately it’s locked now and after writing all this reply I realized that so I decided to post it in a topic alone
The main issue now is skulls in chests. I know some players who spent last war around 2000-2500 gems.It’s impossible to open all chests and scrolling the bases with the 10 raids limit. Well, I think 10 scrolls limit is more fair but with skulls in chests it’s not pay to win even worse than before.
I am totally with random rewards to make the game more fun so winning more skulls may be by chance only not who pays to open the chests. Why not the random rewards are just pure RANDOM? like let’s say we remove the skulls from chests and we keep skulls in the chests that we earn in each milestone like the 1000 skulls, 3000 skulls, etc…
If the skulls rewards will be in those chests only so the player will get skulls as a free reward not as buying skulls by opening chests after each raid.
Randomness is nice and will bring more fun to the game but such random rewards are no longer random since anybody can open chests by gems.
To bring randomness to the game there are millions of ways like special guaranteed chest after each raid that MAY contain skulls or skulls in the milestones chests and we may choose to which battle we add them or a random reward when we complete the 10-20 raids or many other ways to add randomness but without letting rich players win by paying to open chests.
Let’s just do a small calculation: a normal player in top alliances like top 10 has to open let’s say 2 chests on average in 10 raids so 300 gems each battle. average 5 battles per war so that’s 1500 gems eventhough some of my friends spent 2500 gems+ and let’s say 1000 per war. Any player can afford 1000 gems every week? that’s without scrolling too. so is the game now is only to earn gems and spend them in wars and keep playing day and night to be able to win leagues and get gems.
I don’t find any reason to have skulls in chests. if the reason is randomness so there are many ways to bring randomness and I mentioned just couple ways to do so.
10 raids per war personally I find it more fair and easier but some other players may not due to scrolling and others may agree with me. But I am sure the main majority of the players WANT RANDOMNESS AND RANDOM REWARDS AND SKULLS but for FREE and not pay to win
I hope you reply to my post Jack and hear some opinions from the players
