This is a beautiful game.
For many of the addicted players, battle is the fun, exhaustiing or not.
For some of the players, myself at the very least, the fun part is a pleasant distraction after every busy day. There’s simply no time or energy to be spent on the endless fights. And therefore, using real money to buy some fun is my way of playing. I never initiated a battle. Only when under attack, I responded. And that is not fun. It’s in many cases only a means of trying to recover what’s lost, or to prevent the attacker from coming back.
There are serious players, including me. We respect and love this game.
There are however also serious players apparently take this game personally. That’s when they keep coming to you. And this makes me annoyed. Because when the system allows stronger players keep going to the weakers for fun, it has lost the true gaming sense.
The way I look at this, is that it would be unwise for the developing team to not only to stay but also to enhance in the direction of specific targeting, which also reveals more and more of other players’ information.
There is heat generated from these one-after-one.
One would never know that the player carries so much hatred from a game might just be the neighbour next door. And seeing the real world getting more and more violent, there’s really no guarantee and nothing will happen to the players’ real life.
It’s probably an exaggeration.
But I still want to propose.
Make it unable to choose any specific opponent, except under certain scenarios.
- Keep the opponent random. Use criteria, such as by excessive resources, ranking, active level, and battling frequency, to generate opponent candidate.
- Allow players to decide when they want to take challenge, which is when they become specifiable target. There are battle lovers. And there are players who feel absolute satisfaction when they can defend the strongest. They can set a prize. And the system can offer a bonus for these brave defenders, as well as the top challengers. Certain deadline can be set.
This way, I’m hoping of getting back my peace and joy, while keep the fun for the others.
If it keeps going down this route, regardless the money that’s been spent and will be spent, dropping out will be the only choice, which is sad, very sad.
